        Ok but could be better”

        Overall it was a nice place. I do find the check in place troublesome bcs I had to walk up the stairs to go there (it's rly far) I wish they provided another check in counter on the same level as the rooms. I also find the toilets to be... Lacking? There's a huge gap on the toilet walls and it gets freeing cold when showering not to mention the animals and insects that could enter through the holes on the wall. Please consider renovating it.

        Not to bad but you can find a better hotel based on the price”

        When i read the reviews on J residence, someone said that you will be able to view Mount Kinabalu from the property. It is not true. You cannot see Mount Kinabalu from J residence. You need to go to Mesilau(town which was around 15-20 minutes drive from the property. The place is a great place for touch n go. If you are planning to chill and relax, i think invest more and find another place as J residence does not provide much entertainment. Another new experience for us was exiting the property. It was really steep. You need to know how to ramp up the speed of your car in order not to get stuck in the middle of the slope. J residence does not provide meal as per stated in their marketing.

        Good”

        Pros - staff is friendly and attentive and the location is just opposite Kota Kinabalu Park and Dairy Farm is just a short distance of driving. The price for the room is cheap for short stay. Cons - The road to the place is very steep and it could be really dangerous to drive in/out from the road at night. Besides there was a cockroach and spider web in the room when we checked in. The water pressure in the room was very low and not hot enough and difficult to take our shower in the cold night.

        Good value and very near the Timpohon gate”

        The water heaters can be warmer. Toilets would be better if there are more hooks for clothes etc. Everything else is good. Stayed the night before our climb up Mount Kinabalu. It is very near the Timpohon gate so that is a plus.

        don't mind the steep entrance”

        Quiet peaceful environment with friendly cats on site, J. Residence is super close to the Kinabalu Park. Spacious 3 persons bedroom, we've had a goodnight sleep. Although the entrance is quite steep but hey that is expected if you are around the mountain! I'd definitely come back again one day and spend more than one night to explore a lot more of Kinabalu Park.

        Cons: 1. Weak wifi. 2. No phone coverage (Celcom) 3. No TV/Astro. Only DVD with limited movies selection. 4. Very steep road from main road to parking. 5. View is not facing Mount Kinabalu. In fact the scenery of the valley is blocked by trees. 6. No restaurant or cafe. 7. No cooking basic such as oil, sugar or salt in the kitchen.

        Overall it’s worthy of the price for a stay at a cooling and nature surrounding ”

        Road getting down to the property is too steep and not sufficient space for parking and turning back. Suggest to place floor mat in front of the washroom. Overall. It’s worthy of the rate for a stay close to nature with greenery views and cooling effect. I like the balcony where you could enjoy the foggy and misty surroundings. The washroom is a surprise to those who like to listen to the sounds of nature while taking bath. Staff are friendly too.

        Pros: very very near to kk national park and pekan kundasang, very nice view from the balcony, cleanliness is ok, bed is clean, towels are provided Cons: only ONE narrow and very steep road to go in and out, only enough for one car to go through at a time. There is no tv channel but some CDs are provided. Those cant be played tho. Summary: it is a comfy stay. My family slept well that night.

        The place here is great, the rooms are nice and sufficient for normal uses. The bathroom could've been less a sore to the eye but it's fine. The only problem was the road there. Too steep in my opinion but they can't really do anything about it, so i suggest you prepare a suitable car for it. Overall, 4 stars.

        Perfect whether for relaxing or heading for the Mt Kinabalu climb”

        Got there quite late due to flight delayed and was raining heavily. But still greeted and welcomed by the front desk agent. Everything was good especially if you going for the Mt Kinabalu climb then the location is perfect because it’s not too far which is why I chose it at the first place. For retreat, is also very good. Do check with them if you’re driving because the parking there is limited I assume.

        Just a small distance from Kinabalu Park, stay here with friend because we have a climb for kinabalu mountain. Able to see the milkyway if the weather is nice. Avoid bring food outside because those cat will target ur food. There is a poor thing here is there is no window or exhuast fan for our room, we need to open the door because air circulation is not that good,but the door cant open too wide because the cats will come inside our room. but overall we still enjoy the environment.
