          Superb”

          Huge room, clean and relaxing

          The hotel is surrounded by nature. But the road going down to the hotel is very tricky so be prepared and rent a car with good breaks. We were driving a manual car and it is still tricky for us. The bedroom is superb, I got room 2A so there was a common room and a kitchen. However, J Residence would need to upgrade the pillows as it seems it has been used for years now (not fluffy enough haha). The room is basic but enough for us as we just wanted to relax and enjoy the sunrise of Mt Kinabalu. Would definitely come back and have recommended it to my other nature lover friends :)

          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.

          We had a wonderful stay in J Residence Villa. There's 5 of us and the rooms and living space are large enough to cater all us in and maybe more. The water heater works well, we don't have any issue on taking a bath in the morning. The residence is located way lower than the main road, you really need a "healthy" car so can drive up and down through the entrance. The Kundasang town is about 10-15 minute drives away where you get everyday supply. However you can't see the Mount KK from the Residence, thats the only thing that on the down side.

          A nice and quiet place to relax if you love natures environment. As the Chalet is 1500+ above sea-level, be prepared to enjoy cooling weather. During our stay, the temperature was between 12 to 18 degrees centigrade. Room is clean and proper. The staff were friendly and approachable. For easy access to the hotel, highly recommended to have or rent motor vehicles. The Chalet does not cater any food, so pls prepare your own food; either cook your own or go to the nearest stall which is about 300 M located at the entrance of Kinabalu National Park.

          J Residence is within walking distance to entrance of Mt. Kinabalu National Park and also Panataran Restaurant. It is cosy and serene with a nice view of the valley. Alto it is a small establishment, it is well maintained and staff are friendly and courteous. This may be my 2nd time here but I have recommended many friends over the years after my first visit here 8 years ago and I will continue to do so. Oh ya, good idea to have a pail in the bathroom. Your water heater was not hot enough but we managed to mandi using the kettle to boil water. Keep up the good work J Residence.

          J Residence is a short walk from Mt Kinabalu national park. There is no restaurant on the premise but there is a very good one , near the park entrance. The cabin was a good size for 4 of us (cabin 6) and had a nice deck but the room unfortunately had quite a mouldy smell. Ok for 1 night. Very handy having DVD player and DVD's to borrow from the front desk.The staff were very friendly.

          The are 3 rooms in one big house with sharing verandah. Like terrace house. Don't worry,every rooms are separated with your own door. The problem will come when you neighbour can't walk slowly at verandah. The sound of the step bit noisy because the verandah are from woods. This situation very different when you stay at hotel 😊. But every morning and night, you can see the nice view from the verandah. The lack from J Residence are they don't have mat,hanger and cupboard. So it quit difficult to us to put our things. It just have a small cabinet without drawer. J Residence very near to Kinabalu Park. It just take around 5 minute to arrive at Kinabalu Park and you can see the amazing view of Mt Kinabalu.

          This is our last minute trip to Kundasang. And we search the hotel on the same day morning. Time I search there are 2 choices of triple room, one is superior room without parking which is cheaper and another one is superior triple room. As we need for the parking, so I booked the superior triple room which is more expensive. But time I check in, I just saw the check in form show my room is superior room without parking. So I told the staff the room I booked is superior triple room which is more expensive about RM10+. Then he mention to me, they only left this room if I booking on the same day morning. I'm feeling like being cheat although they provide me the parking slot. If like this case why I need to pay extra? Other than this problem, this hotel is actually good location as it nearby kinabalu park. And the surrounding is beautiful.

          Nice stay”

          We stayed for 2 nights. The rooms were basic but we were prepared for it as it was very cheap. I loved the nature surrounding this place. All trees, nature it is. Weather was cold. Its just minutes walk away from Kinabalu park. It's quite a distance to Kundasang town. Lucky for us that we had a car. No TV channels, only DVD but we can't play it either.

          Is a nice place to stay for wish to visit kinabalu park”

          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.

          Perfect place to stay before climbing mount Kinabalu ”

          My friend and I stayed here because we wanted to climb mount Kinabalu. This place is very near to kinabalu park, just a walking distance. The staff is also very friendly, always lending a hand. But the only problem is maybe some rooms couldn’t receive wifi. And the temperature is quite cool so no need aircond.

          We (four of us) stayed here the night before we hiked Mount Kinabalu. We stayed at one of the chalet and it comes with a huge veranda. The staff allowed us to cook at our own veranda (we brought food and cooking utensils and equipment on our own). Located strategically just less than 200 metres from the Kinabalu Park. Depending on which chalet you are staying, the morning view is amazing!

          Awesome!”

          Once a month we will go for holiday in kundasang, and most of the time im always booked place to stay where i can see view of mount kinabalu, its because im a bit sceptical and sensitive about the view. Well tq J’Residence your place is exactly like your website picture! Its super cool place to hang out with less noise of crowd people 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

          J residence is just a minute away drive from Kinabalu Park. The room is basic and clean. Staff is friendly. Good scenery but it's not facing KK mountain. Value for money.

          Located just 300m from Gunung Kinabalu national park entrance. Nicely designed room/chalet (nr 6). Suspended above the ground, with large windows and balcony. Quite new and maintained. Hot shower. Some view. Cool and fresh air. Quiet (just some noise from the road above). Ok restaurant opposite the park entrance. Open from 7:00 am to 7:30 pm.

          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.
