The Hotel Jesselton is located on a 2-way shady street within walking distance to inexpensive restaurants, a bakery a block away, supermarket and a shopping mall a short 3 block walk. Also, the Kota Kinabalu tourist office is within 2 blocks to pick up a free city map, brochures and helpful information. Check-in and check out was good. The reception staff are polite, very friendly and they speak good English. The Doormen and bell-hop are very courteous and helpful which is a big plus. Free in-room Wifi is another plus and clean rooms too. However, pillows are too hard. The hotel management should stock softer pillows to offer tired traveling tourists in need of a soft pillow. No small wash cloth provided to use for a shower. No small door knob sign indicating - please do not disturb or please clean room. 2 bottles of complimentary water are provided - a big plus. Wake up call was on time. Our room 204 faced the street and it can be noisy with motorbikes passing on the road. There's a 6% government tax on top of a 10% hotel service charge that hopefully the hotel management gives their room cleaning staff, reception, bell hop and doormen personnel a share of it. There's no free breakfast not even a welcome juice drink or hot fresh morning coffee and that's unusual for hotel's now-a-days. In the USA we call charging extra for breakfast = "nickel and diming" - another way to make more money from hotel quests.
