          AFFORDABLE & COMFY STAY”

          The scenic view of the hills was splendid! This hotel is located at the steep of the hill. So, please expect the road to parking area is super steep too. But, bear in mind, I was only using Axia car, not a problem at all. You just gotta be confident and brave enough to press the accelerator & brake! LOL. The hotel is surrounded by thick forest and its garden is the bomb, loved it! Just like in a fairy tale with lots of animals statue. The location is very cold at night, the lowest we had during our stay was 14 degree with added super cold wind especially during rain. The room was not equipped with a heater, except the water heater of course that's a must! If you can't stand a temperature below 16 degree, then prepare your thick clothes and extra socks during the night. Not to forget, face moisturizer, lip balm, and hand/body lotion are a must things to bring, so that your skin won't get roughed, peeled of, cracked, etc. To summarize, I love staying at J Residence for 2-night! And it's not that far from Kundasang centre, only 15-20min drive.

          Location was great, just a short walking distance from Kinabalu Park. The drive down to the lodge was very steep and our little car struggled to get back up so we parked on the side of the street on top of the hill. It was fine but could be an accessibility issue for some. Our room was in its own hut, it was basic but clean. The other rooms looked newer and quite nice. There was always hot water when we showered which was excellent since it was so cold at night. There looked to be facilities for outdoor eating and bbq although we didn't use it. We had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend.
