It was a pleasant stay. I stayed for 4 nights. It worth every penny. I notice the room resembles Korean/Japanese style. They have wooden tub instead of ordinary bathtub. The gym and pool are available for use starting 7 am. The gym has decent basic facilities and towel is provided. The breakfast is good. I heard the place is popular...

Kota Kinabalu is not a populous city by Asian standards, but it is spread out over a large area, So location is important when choosing a hotel. The Horizon Hotel is in the part of town you want to be if you are a tourist, It is close to the Gaya street Sunday Market, the night market, the waterfront fishing...

We spent 5 nights in Kota Kinabalu in Horizon Hotel with my boyfriend and a friend couple. I have no complaints of the hotel. Staff was helpful and friendly and rooms where spacious and decorated tastefully. Only the breakfast didn't quite match my 5 star rating, so thats why I gave 4 out of 5. But the location of the...

Agreed with a previous reviewer that this is a 3.5-star hotel at best, at least based on the two satisfactory albeit unimpressive one-night stays we just had. First stay we had a nice room (1314) on the top floor (actually the 13th floor, but labelled as 'P' in the lifts), fairly roomy, views towards Gaya St. Second stay on level...

Horizon is a great hotel; clean, modern rooms with comfortable beds. Tastefully decorated. Really nice bathrooms. The breakfast buffet was fantastic and the staff attentive, filling coffee cups and clearing plates as needed. Security is good, you can only access your floor by swiping your room key in the elevator. My only issue was trying to find the light switches...

Overall it's a nice hotel in the centre, 5 minutes walking to numerous restaurant and bars. The room was spacious and clean. Cleaning team made an effort. The breakfast was good and they offered plenty of choices both European and Asian style. Wif worked amazingly well. On the improvement side, these are are small matters but together they can decide...
