        The staff are all very friendly and accommodating. I like the fact that there is on-site parking, and the hotel is close to everything in the city that I might want to visit. I like the food in the bar-restaurant, not to mention the excellent lime daiquiris!

        We booked a superior room with one extra bed for one night. We got our wish for an early check in at 12 noon. On top of that we were pleasantly surprised with an upgrade to a junior suite with one king double and a single bed. The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. Everything was quite new. The staff were very helpful and polite. The lobby is a little small for a four star hotel. But we will definitely return to this hotel during our next visit to KK.

        This was a good choice,excellent value for money,clean spacious rooms,with a good choice of food for breakfast.I would stay here again.

        I do not think it is worth the extra for a sea room, you do see the sea from a distance but you are overlooking a burnt out hotel whci spoils the view.

        Clean room

        Totally overpriced. Buffet lunch sucks. No toothbrush in room. Weak shower, water temperature not quite adjustable. Staff not helpful, always only 2 staff at the lobby. When I kept my baggage, it's just placed under the stairs, with no lock. I got my baggage, and put it back again but they didn't even notice. Too much overpriced

        Centrally located, great staff especially at reception counter. Rooms are impeccable with classy ambiance. Parking are easy and accessible to guests.

        As a muslim traveller and guest, I am saddened and furious at the breakfast buffet where fried bacon ( which is definitely non-halal food ) is served among the foods. I wonder how this bacon is prepared in the kitchen. Whether it is separately fried in a separate wok. And have the hotel management received jakim halal certficate? I doubt so.

        Interior of Room. Helpful Hotel stuff to find out Car Hire service etc.

        They would like to to go by rule book without considering the devastating consequences on their client. My daughter (12 Yr) has wiped her eye liner in a small hand towel while cleaning her face(leading to 3-4 black spot in towel). The room service has picked up towel from my room and kept the towel for getting fine from me. They informed nothing during my 3 days stay. While checking out they asked me to pay MYR 10 fine for that. The cost of the towel is hardly 50 cent and it can be easily washed. We feel so demoralized that I promise that I will never go for any Horizon Group of hotel. I would like to warn everybody "Please be cautious about the hotel--- because they have immature people in their management team" which will lead to untoward experience.

        Location is good, and daily buffet breakfast is available.

        Pillows were not comfortable (had painful neck the next morning). Water pressure in the shower not strong enough.

        It was centrally located and the staff were very attentive and helpful. Should one wish to book a tour there is a dedicated member of staff in the lobby who can organize it for you. I had booked a room with sea view which was wonderful to wake up to. Although I personally did not use the facilities, just went to have a look, the swimming pool area and spa looked really enticing. The buffet breakfast was a veritable feast for the eyes as well as the tum.

        Although they had wifi in the reception/lobby area it got a bit crowded at times when many of us wanted to log on. Did not leave much space for other guests/visitors to wait around in. Would have been happy to have had the option to pay a bit extra in order to access wifi from the room.

        The water shower pressure is still very low. I did comment on my first stay at HH but there was no improvement.

        The Hotel, is really nice, with a great view from the room on the sea, that wonders you at sunset with marvelous colours. I'ts really in the city center, although I've not been impressed by KK, it's really cloase to a great fish restaurant and many malls. Worth 2 nights. The pool on the 6th floor is not really great but relaxing after a day visiting the city. The Gym is really good although not too big.

        The spa on the 6th and the longe on the 13th floor are under renovation. The Spa will probably look awesome once finished in 1/2 months, I've sene pictures of the lounge on the last floor and will probably be great with a view on the sea that will leave you breathless. Unfortunately the renovation was not indicated anywhere when we booked.

        Brilliant place to stay, walking distance to everything in the centre of KK. Staff couldn't do enough for us, they always knew our names, brilliant, trustworty people, so friendly. Tour prices we booked at hotel were cheaper than outside agencies. Sea view room was good size, with good air-con. Looked very new. Brekkie was great, huge selection. Pool was a bonus too. Free in room safe. Tea/coffee maker in room. Great value for money. Worth its 4* rating if not better. Loved the place!

        Nothing really not to like just a few pointers perhaps, many we knew or figured out in advance anyway. Bath tub isn't really for soaking. Shower head is static but can be hand held. No wifi in room, lobby area only. Pool area is a bit small with space for approx 4 sun loungers. Pool capacity is 20 max. Toaster in brekkie room could be better. Room towels changes twice a day.
