We spent four nights at The Jesselton. We really enjoyed our stay. All the staff very friendly. The room suited our needs. We would class the hotel as "shabby chic", the facilities could do with a little updating, but it was a very pleasant stay. Ideally located to Jesselton Point.

We only stayed for one night at the Jesselton, so do bear this in mind when reading this review. There was nothing particularly wrong with the hotel - it was just rather unexceptional and lacking character, especially for a hotel that positions itself as 'boutique'.

We had a large and comfortable room with a decent, if well-worn, en-suite bathroom. The air-con was leaking some water when we arrived, which was quickly fixed, so the staff were attentive. Location is good, being at the top end of town. We have no idea of what else is available in town, so perhaps are being a little ungenerous.

Had room service due to an early start the next day, which was above average.

Stayed for three nights in July. The hotel is well situated. The rooms were clean and spacious, though could do with a little revamp and a freshen up. This did not deter us from our stay and were comfortable. Found the staff helpful and friendly. Breakfast was okay and was included in our room rate. It would be nice if they opened up the front area for more sitting/service area.

Full disclosure - we were upgraded to the suite when we arrived, so I had to ask the staff to view a standard room to make this review. Overall, the hotel is nicely renovated, good staff service, well appointed rooms and a good restaurant off the lobby.. I found nothing to fault. It is also right downtown, which is a plus in my book. Good WiFi in room

The location is excellent, but the service lower the expectation! Some comments about the service of this hotel is good, in fact, negative ! Perhaps, I expected too much before check-in.
Some time 1 big towel in the room only, another day no big towel with only small towel! The second day no fridge in the room 107 but 101 had...
Anyway, the attitude of the staff is nice, only the facilities are little disappointed!
