Great hotel in the center of town
Location comfort and service
We really liked our stay at the Jessleton. It is a very well maintained hotel with courteous, and efficient staff. The front desk is very knowledgeable about the town and surrounding area. The hotel itself is perfectly situated in the center of the city , directly across from the Old Town White Coffee Cafe . On Sundays the Market is directly in front of the hotel. Movie Theatre is in a mall about three blocks away.

Beautiful colonial boutique hotel
Location, service and historic
The Jesselton is in the perfect location to explore the town of Kota Kinabalu. Old Town White Coffee is next door as is a 7-11 store. There are two malls within a 5 minute walk. The ocean boardwalk is close as well.

Great splurge stay
Cleanliness, location, staff
This is a great hotel. Old but still elegant and well maintained. Spotlessly clean and big well appointed rooms with really comfortablele beds. Even had a door man. We splurged a bit to stay here and it was well worth it.

Nice hotel, great location, comfortable room
We have a deluxe room with queen bed, room is big, bed is comfortable, and hotel is greatly located in Gays Street where you can find all the renowned restaurants. And there's Sunday Market at the street. Staffs were very friendly and helpful, they helped us called a cab to Mount Kinabalu and negotiated a reasonable price for us. The decoration of the hotel is very classy, overall we are very happy to stay here.
