    Comfortable stay.

    The Jesselton Hotel is right in middle of town and there are many eating places nearby. It is one of the few English built buildings left standing. It has been modernized to make it a comfortable Hotel. The Restaurant was closed for r enervation while I was there. Over all I had no complaints about this Hotel. had four nights there.

      Our perfect stopover each and every time!

      It has been our third return stay at the Jesselton and the newly renovated rooms wing although lost some of the colonial charm comparing to the original furnishing are smartly appointed with all the creature comforts at hand. As expexted from a boutique hotel the staff welcomes you with a big smile each time you enter the building and Front Desk team acknowledges returning Guests. Perfect location on the corner of Gaya Street with Sunday flea market with local finds and curiosities, plus easy access to the lush jungle hill behind makes it a perfect stopover for any longer stay in Sabah!
