We are very pleased during our stay in J residence. Stayed in 5B. So close to nature. Cold yet very relaxing. We liked the room, the view and environment very much. Definitely will come back in the future!

If you're into nature, got no problem with bugs and coldness, don't hesitate to stay here.

We really enjoyed our stay at JResidence. The house was well equipped and the surroundings beautifully kept. (Also loved the friendly cats). I also want to commend your staff on their helpfulness when we had issues with our house's electric kettle. Will definitely stay here again for any future visits and will highly recommend JResidence to our friends and family.

Natural environment with fresh and cold air..
Just about 300m walking distance to Mt. Kinabalu Park..
No restaurant/cafe in the residence. If you're looking for food, the nearest restaurant would be 200m away, en route to the Mt. Kinabalu Park. We had our breakfast and lunch there..
Our room, generally ok and comfy. But freaking cold while having bathe as the the hot water flow was very weak. It took me a long time to finish bathing..
Power socket in room, 2 out of 4 were out of function! We have insufficient sources to charge our gadgets! And there's no hair dryer in room..
Staff are kind and willing to help but do not expect much as they are not fluent in English..
Overall is ok as it is a budget stay..

Not the most well advertised place to stay near Mt Kinabalu, but recommended to us by a local tour operator. What a gem!

The hotel is about 200m from the entrance of the park, so location couldn't be better. We paid 88 MYR for a twin room, so it was an amazing bargain. Room was basic, but very clean and bathroom had a great, strong and hot shower. Overall fantastic for the price we paid.

A tip: There is no restaurant in the hotel, but there is a great restaurant by the bus stop/car park just in front of the entrance to the Kinabalu Park (turn right when you walk out of the hotel - you can't miss it, there is only one place). Food there is very authentic and cheap as chips. You can also stock up on basic food items and drinks.
