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 hotel with great service

Colonial architecture, location and service

Our stay at the Jessleton was excellent. it is centrally located and it is easy to get taxis and buses to where ever you wish to go. I was attending a conference just out of town and found it easy to commute in the mornings and evenings. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable with an attentive staff. We would definitely stay there again.

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.

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.

Nice hotel, nice city, nice people

Nicely located at the end of Gaya street, Staff is friendly, Facility is acceptable
7.3
Hotel is located at the end of Gaya Street. Kota Kinabalu is not a big city, so can walk to Jesselton Point (Ferry Port) in 10 minutes, Water Promenade in 20 minutes. There are many restaurants around the hotel. 2 minutes walk to nearest combenience store. There is Sunday market in Gaya Street. Hotel is traditional, but the facility is acceptable even it is a bit old. Hotel staff is friendly and very kind. Price of the hotel is a little bit high, but based on my experience there, I can highly recommend the Jesselton hotel.
