My husband and I visited the Horizon in March for our Anniversary. The hotel had kindly upgraded us to a superior room with a stunning large balcony overlooking the sea and islands. The room was great, really large, comfortable bed and spacious shower. The breakfast was also very good with plenty of vegetarian options for me. The hotel is minutes...

I am very happy with my stay at Horizon Hotel. The rooms are huge, comfortable and offer a wonderful view of the sea, especially during sunset. Breakfast was delicious with lots of local dishes and an omelet station. I highly recommend chicken dim sums and the peppermint cake. The location of this hotel is simply the best. It is right...

We stayed at the Horizon Hotel for 3 nights during a recent trip to Borneo and would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a dimple, comfortable, and very central hotel in KK. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The free in-room wifi was a bit slow but functional. Breakfast was good, with a wide selection of...

This is within walking distance of markets (fresh food, seafood and night and Sunday markets), also Observatory Hill and major shopping complexes both modern and local. Fantastic views over the city and water as no buildings in front or behind it. A Cafe and restaurant serving a vast variety of both Asian and Western options. Wine is expensive but in...

We stayed here for 3 nights in total, the hotel is well located (a little way from the main strip) but with a supermarket near and restaurants. Our first room for 2 nights (we stayed here for another night after) was 8th floor, good view, clean. The bathroom had a convertible rain shower/wall shower and unfortunately the pull lever came...

We stayed here for 6 days. The room the last one in the row of rooms at floor 6, was very weird in a bad way. It had a huge bed (the room was tiny, so what's the point) and behind the bed there was a huge (again what were you thinking!) bath tub! I mean who would want to...

We stayed for four nights. Our room was lovely and spacious and the wifi worked very well. The dressing gowns were very comfortable and the toiletries very nice - it was good to have conditioner as well as shampoo. The breakfast was very varied and it was nice to have a wider range of fruit than we'd seen elsewhere. The...

We had a great time here, beautiful room, service was very good, breakfast had a lot of options. The location was ideal in walking distance to most places, right next to the Sunday market. Our only issue was the 4 loungers by the pool. If you are not quick you can sit near the pool.
