“Good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

This hotel is in a good location. The staff were excellent. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a room on the top floor on arrival. The room was great with a fantastic view out to sea. The bed was very comfortable and it was quiet. Breakfast was included and was a buffet with a good variety of food.

A bit of an unknown quantity before arrival, I would definitely recommend this accommodation. It is well located and the facilities are more than adequate for the standard of hotel. Well priced and, as you would really expect for such a new hotel, very clean and modern. We stopped in a deluxe double and although the room is not particularly large, it was perfectly formed with a very contemporary feel. Not too sure about the voyeuristic shower room though. Fine for me and the missus, but if you're going to share with your children I don't particularly want to be flashing my flesh to the kids!! If there was a bit of a let down it was the pool area - there is enough seating / lounging for about a dozen people - evidently not enough for a hotel that has 180 rooms! The room rate included breakfast which was quite nice and the staff were great as well. We will return.

I was looking for a place to stay for my visit to kk in January 2012. I must say that comfortable lodging in KK can be quite expensive.

Then we came across Horizon hotel along Jalan Pantai. As it is not fully opened yet and have limited rooms, we pounced on the chance to book direct with the hotel for our stay. Our decision was made after viewing the rooms n comments made on TA. Furthermore, the rates are reasonable n very centrally located.

Gaya sunday market is just at the opposite street. Centerpoint is 10 mins walk. Central market n filipino market is also 10 mins walk n the new Suria Sabah shopping mall is 5 mins walk. Theres alot of chinese coffeshop infront of the hotel along jalan pantai n jln gaya. I only come across 2 stall in the coffeshop that served halal food. So for muslims, food around the hotel can be hard to find. We arrived in kk at 8pm n most of the shops around the area are closed. There is a link bridge behind the hotel that is linked to KK plaza n central market.

Horizon is a 13 storey hotel located along Jalan Pantai infont of General post office. They have 2 restaurant at the lobby n 4 levels of carpark. The outdoor swimming pool n gym are located on the 6th floor n rooms are located from 7th to 13 th floor. We book for deluxe king room n was given the junior king suite room on the 13th floor.

The room was spacious with nice bathroom. The unique design of the room is that the washing basin n bathtub are located outside the bathroom. The room will comfortable accomodate a family of 4. There are long sofa placed along the glass window overlooking Atkinson clock tower.

Overall, we are very happy with our stay ay the hotel. It just makes us just want to stay in the room n not go out. Breakfast was ok. Theres a choices of American n local delights like eggs, sausage, nasi lemak n mee goreng. Our stay will be complete if only the spa at the hotel is open.

I will definitely be staying at horizon hotel if i were to visir kota kinabalu again......

Newly opened place. We got special offered through a local friend. All in all a great stay. Watch out though. They have used budget materials throughout the whole place. Locks already rusting, vineer falling off the cabinets after only a few weeks. Unless serious money is spent on maintenance the coming years his place will be run down quickly.

We heard about the hotel from a friend living in KK and decided to book our stay there. The hotel is brand new and only three floors are open at this stage for accommodation. The rooms are very nicely appointed and have nice water views on one side. We found the service exceptionally good and staff extremely helpful. They have two restaurants (the coffee shop and an Asian Restaurant), both of which serve fabulous food. The variety is superb. We did not make use of the spa, only because we ran out of time. However, we imagine it would have been of the same high standard as the rest of the hotel facilities. The hotel is close to most attractions and just a street away from the Sunday Gaya Street Markets. Would love to stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms on one side of the hotel face the sea.

This ia a recently opened business class hotel offering a very attriative promotional rate until September 2011 of RM180 for a standard room including taxes and breakfasts. The hotel is not finished and some things do not work properly (the wifi did not work when we were there and the spa is not open) but the quality of the hotel is excellent, the position is central and it offers a pool and free parking. Service was willing but patchy but it was obviously still working up.
