We stayed at the Jesselton in August 2012 for 3 nights so we could explore Kota Kinabalu.
If you are looking for location over luxury then this is tha place for you.
The location is absolutely perfect - on the corner of Gaya Street - KK's "high street" where the market sets up every Sunday.
The public areas on the ground florr, reception & lounge/restaurant area are very well presented and clean however the rooms could most certainly do with a bit of a revamp!
We opted for a Superior Double (the lead in room type) which cost MYR500.00 approx £110.00 total for the 3 nights - Room Only.
The room was spacious and comfortable, but just looked a little run down and although the bed was huge and comfortable, the other furniture was a bit worn and tattered.
Maybe the Deluxe rooms are better on the eye but for the price we paid this was ideal and great value for a short stay.
We did not eat in the hotel as ventured out and about the whole time we were there - lots of choice!
The reception staff were extremely helpful & friendly and booked excursions for us through "THY Borneo Tours" very good value and well worth the money.
We were even able to store our luggage there for 3 days after we checked out to go on a Jungle Tour - this was completely free of charge.... EXCELLENT!!
