Great Location for a Lovely City”

The Staff, Secure Parking, Convient Location

the horizon hotel in kota kinabalu is situated in the heart of the city close the istanza, the sabah governor’s residence. it’s a new hotel, being only 4 months old. but don’t let that dissuade you from staying here. the general manager, philip d. theseira, who i would now count as a good friend, has a top rate staff. all are very welcoming, polite and most helpful; addressing you by name as to go about your business. they even moved me to a new room, because i couldn’t establish an internet connection in my original room. rooms are spacious having king sized beds, a small area for sitting and relaxing, and large walk in showers. larger rooms are also available for those with children. but the room size i had was perfect for the duration of my stay. the hotel has three levels of secure private parking, which is free to hotel guests. in addition there is a swimming pool and well equipped gymnasium on the sixth floor, allowing for mostly uninterrupted views out across the bay. these are used at the guest’s own risk, as there are no staff or life guards present. the two excellent restaurants, give the guest a choice of food styles from around the region, as well as international cuisine. however please be aware that all food is halal, so there is no pork available on the menus. with its situation in the centre of the city; it’s only a short walk to all the shopping malls, restaurants and bars. i never had to use a taxi once, preferring to walk around and see all that was on offer. it’s also ideally located to all the scuba dive centres that offer very reasonably priced diving off the islands of gaya and sapi. i’ve already planned my next stay, if for nothing else, but the convenience. but that’s not the only reason of course.

Affordable Superb 4stars Hotel!”

Horizon Hotel, Kota Kinabalu (KK) is a 4 stars hotel located right at the center of KK city. Booked for twin deluxe room (sea view), superb in quality! The room is well cleaned & tidy, full amenities that you could expect from 4 stars service hotel such soap, shampoo & conditioner, rain shower (hot & cold), comb, toothbrush, sewing kit, iron w/board, bathrobe, 40inch flat screen tv, mini bar and even safe box. The room also smell fresh & good soundproofing! Free breakfast available at Deco & Grill Cafe at the lobby, the breakfast buffet is okay & can be improved. The overall service is great & friendly hotel hostess. The hotel's location is also great! Located just right few steps away from the infamous Gaya Sunday Market (Sunday Only). Just 2 blocks away from the hotel is infamous Bak Kut Teh restaurant, Suria Mall, Upperstar Bar, 20mins walk to Jesselton Jetty or Filipino Market. There is also 24hours shop available steps away from the hotel. Recommended hotel! Value for money!

Perfect Hotel, Perfect Vacation”

Excellent staff, ideal location, best value for money!

It was our first trip to Kota Kinabalu and we wanted to make it special and memorable. We got off to a very bad start in another hotel. Thank God that just after 1 day, we decided moved and chose Horizon Hotel. It was the best decision ever! It was in the perfect location, room and amenities was much more than we expected, food was delicious, and the hotel staff was superb! Special mention goes to Bell Captain Mr. Dino Raquiza who, from the time we arrived, always made us feel special. He gets 6-stars for service above the call-of-duty! We will definitely be back in Kota, and back to Horizon Hotel, with many more friends!!!!

Wonderful Hotel”

The hotel was clean and comfortable, the location was good and convenience

This is the first time we have stayed in Horizon Hotel, the staffs were friendly and polite. The reception was so kind to upgrade our room when we asked for a non-smoking floor which is not available according to the room type we initially booked. We spent 2 nights in Horizon Hotel and we can easily find foods around the hotel. We asked for a late check-out when we were unable to return to hotel in time after our local tour trip, the duty manager was so helpful and agreed to extend our check-out time to 3pm. We will definitely come back to Horizon Hotel if we visit Kota Kinabalu again.

Great service, friendly staff, Very clean hotel. ”

Really nice hotel, staff and services were great and my partner and I both loved the location.!

We stay at Horizon and found the staff were friendly, honest,helpful and very generous with infomation and assisstance. The hotel was clean and beautifully set out. It was wonderful value for money. We also went elsewhere in malaysia and came back to horizon, where they had carefully minded our personal property for us- and to our delight we were upgraded as a return client. Fabulous service. My only suggestion for improvement is if the pool could stay open for a few hours later, as it would be nice for a dunk to end the wonderful days you have in Kota Kinabalu.

If I travel kota kinabalu again, i will choose Horizon Hotel again because it is reasonable price, the bed is comfortable, overall the room is clean. The breakfast also has many choice but the taste just normal only, not so delicious. The staff are also friendly, when I request the high floor room, they will fulfill my request. I will recommand my friends and relatives to stay over there while travelling in kota kinabalu.

Didn't expect much, but satisfied nonetheless”

The CBD area of Kota Kinabalu is not very big; after familiarising our selves with the place, most places are within walkable distance. Horizon Hotel is quite central to a lot of eating places. The morning Sunday market is just in front of the hotel. A bustling and vibrant must see/do activitity. The staff at the hotel are extremely polite and courteous. They go out of their way to make guests feel welcome. My father fell not too far from the hotel. We brought him back. The concierge without asking or being told asked if we needed a wheelchair for him. All we had to do was provide the room number. We could use the wheelchair outside the hotel. Furthermore, my parents were given a "physical" room; the bathroom in the room was catered for the elderly. The rooms were cleaned and comfortable. The twin beds were of the super single size. The only miff was that they had set up the extra bed as requested when we did the booking. But the housekeeping staff were very prompt in bringing the extra bed together with the extra set of toiletries. Although not a very large hotel, the gym provided was of a comparable standard. May be because, it catered to outside membership. The pool although relatively small, was of a decent size. Both located on the 6th floor. Security at the hotel is good. Guests are required to tap their room card keys to access the various levels except fot those staying on level 6 where the gym and pool are located. There is , however, another separate door that leads to the rooms and this has to be accessed by the room card key. Although we had a twin room and extra bed, there was still sufficient space to move about the room. The light at the room entrance is by sensor; this is certainly very eco friendly. The sun rises particularly early in KK, so if you want to sleep in a little, do remember to draw the curtains close! At the back of the hotel, there is a bus stop where the airport shuttle stops at. The timings are listed on the board. Very convenient!

Simpy a wonder”

Very comfortable and stylish room, magnificient view, perfect lication

Having returned to this hotel after the trip to Mount Kinabalu I've got a free upgrade to Sunset room at the penthouse. The room itself is very large and has a unique design (though one might argue against placing the bathtub in the living room instead of the bathroom), and large windows overlooking the scenic landscape of the city and the Bay of Kota Kinabalu. The windows (and the bed) are facing west, so at sunset one may fully enjoy the majestic view. The hotel had simply no noticeable disadvantages: nice and friendly staff, fine breakfast, convenient location close to the downtown. Verdict: just a perfect place. Will definitely stay there again when visiting Kota Kinabalu.

Location, good views, large clean room

This is the first time we have been to Kota Kinabalu. We enjoyed our stay there, but found it did not have too much to offer in regards to night-time dining. This is a good city for shopping and there are many shopping plazas nearby to the hotel. If I returned to Kota Kinabalu I would definitely stay at the Horizon Hotel again.

lap pool/gym, located next to the walkway to the waterfront and very close (50m) from the Sunday Markets, very secure hotel and helpful staff.

i had a great time in kota kinabalu. the horizon hotel was positioned in an ideal location - close to everything, including the sunday markets, fish markets and the waterfront bars. the pedestrian overpass ran from the horizon hotel to the central markets, making life very easy to get there safely and without having to encounter traffic. the pool was great, and regularly cleaned. pool staff were friendly. breakfast buffet was ok - not the best food, but the staff were great. if i were to go again i'd cancel the breakfasts and just wander to the local eateries - cheaper food and more authentic dishes.

Great Location with good customer service”

Location, friendly and accommodating staff

The Horizon Hotel at Kota Kinabalu was centrally located. Within walking distance of the markets, eating places etc. We were upgraded and the room was nice and clean with a view over the water. The bed was very comfortable and we ordered ice for our wine that we had purchased and it was free of charge. The breakfast had a good variety of both Western and Eastern foods. We hired a car and the car parking in the Hotel, even though there is a charge, it is free for guests at the Hotel. The morning we departed it was too early for breakfast, so the staff packed us a box with a few bread rolls, little croissants, a cupcake and a bottle of water each. These little things go a long way. We would definitely consider going back there if we were to return to Sabah in the future.

One of the Best in Kota Kinabalu”

Friendly and Excellent Customer Services, Good Location

The convenient location is obviously the greatest advantages of this hotel. Almost all landmarks and tourist attractions in the downtown are within the walking distance. But this is not the only advantage, the customer service and frontline staff are very friendly and helpful. Once we would like to find a destination which we planned to visit, a duty manager not only directed us to go by explaining with a map, he further drew a simple map himself to tell us the way. I would like to express my sincere thanks to the duty manager. As for the room, the quality is good. We stayed in deluxe seaview room. From the large window, we could look at the sea, islands, and the city. The room is new and the decoration is stylish. The bathroom is spacious. The lavatory is kept clean and tidy. I really hope that the hotel could be well managed and maintained so that the rooms could be remained high standard after years. There is a gym room and two swimming pools (a “bigger” one and a tiny one) but we have not tried due to our tight itinerary. Free wifi service is provided at the lobby. Surprisingly, the buffet breakfast offers a great variety of food (e.g. dim sum, bread, cereal, hot dishes, congee, rice, donuts and juice). Just to remind other guests that deposit will be required when checking-in, it will be refunded when checking-out. We would definitely stay in this hotel during our next visit to Kota Kinabalu given its good service and location. And we would certainly visit Sabah again in future. What a good place to visit.

Relaxing, Comfortable and Value for Money”

Centrally Located in the city, clean and value for money.

I had stayed in Horizon Hotel for 2 nights after my climb from Mt Kinabalu. The hotel staff greeted us warmly, the room was clean and spacious. The toilet is spacious and clean. Comfortable beds and good TV reception. Watch few good movies in the room. Swimming pool is clean and we can see the view of the sea. Hotel is centrally located to delicious local food which is cheap and nice. Hotel is always crowded with tourist. Worth for value.

Nice hotel, good value, friendly staff”

This hotel has a great location. Staff are very friendly, the pools and gym are fine, and the value is good

This was my second stay at Horizon. On each visit I received a free upgrade upon arrival to a deluxe room. I recommend the deluxe rooms without a sea view, because the deluxe room I had on that side of the building was significantly bigger. Free parking in the car park (located on levels 2 and 3)was very convenient for my family, because during business hours I saw very few empty parking spots on the streets in the CBD on Kota Kinabalu.

Convenient location, great room, excellent service”

The trippy, swirly carpet in the hallway was awesome!

Overall we enjoyed our stay at this fabulous new hotel in central KK. Our room was comfortable and had a decent view, most of the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the concierge was also extremely helpful in organizing our tour to the Mari Mari cultural village and giving honest information about the cheapest way to go island hopping (i.e. walk to the jetty and arrange it independently). A few minor criticisms: there wasn't much space in the room to put our things or especially to hang them up (for drying); after the first day, there seemed to be a chronic coffee shortage at the otherwise excellent breakfast -- we often felt that we were "in the zone" (of no coffee); and finally, there was no wi-fi on our floor (this was addressed in a personal email from the manager, who said they're in the process of upgrading in-room wi-fi so this won't be a problem in the future. Also, when booking, watch which "B2B channel" you use (e.g. clicking on an Agoda "insider deal" email advertisement), as the conditions may not be the same as what is advertised in the room rate. In our case, it was the inclusion of the New Year's Eve gala; the hotel wanted to charge us for it despite the fact that it was clearly advertised as included in our rate. After we made it clear that whatever miscommunication had taken place between the hotel and Agoda wasn't our problem, eventually the manager took care of it. Overall, we wholeheartedly recommend the Horizon.

Perfect if staying in the center”

The room was nicely decorated. 5 minute walk to the jetty for boats to the Islands. The staff were more than accommodating and extremely polite.

We only booked for a few days as a quick getaway. Kota Kinabalu is the not the picturesque of towns but we had daily trips planned so needed a place to rest our heads. We read lots of great reviews about this place and it didn't disappoint. The Front desk staff were great as was everyone else in the hotel. This Hotel is very well run and caters to every nationality. All the facilities were great. The free breakfast had a vast choice, the gym was excellent and the pool was great for a dip but sadly not enough sun loungers. If you are planning to get out and about this is a very comfortable place to have as your base. A quick tip. We found the most amazing bar/ restaurant Party Play Lifestyle Cafe. only a 5 minute walk and everything presented to you deserves a picture.

This is the good hotel with excellent location”

The location of the hotel. You can have wifi access in every room. The hotel is quite new.

It is a very good experience in staying here. The location is the best comment i would like to make. Kota Kinabalu is not a big town. Staying in this hotel, everywhere in Kota Kinabalu town can be walk-able. The design of the hotel is simple, modern and new. The room price is reasonable. But the swimming pool is smaller than expected. And the water is not clean enough.
