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.

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.

Too many carpets

Location, Friendly Staff
8
I am very sensitive to the smell of mould, and as the hotel which is rather old, and it is fully carpeted, I actually notice the smell of mould everywhere. I think it would be great if the hotel can do a thorough cleaning. This is a charming hotel in terms of decoration and the staff is friendly and helpful. It is also very central, and within easy walking distances to all the great food places in Kota Kinabalu city centre.

Nice hotel, great location, comfortable room
9.3
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.
