Pleasant stay but air-con was noisy on first night. Location is convenient for food since its on Gaya Street and also shopping as it was nearby Suria Sabah. Hotel rate is reasonable for what is an old but adequately maintained hotel.

Generally speaking, the quality of the hotel is very good. However, I would like to say the wifi is not strong enough

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.

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.

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.
