The room that was offered to us was obviously not cleaned up after the previous guests. When asked about it, they just transferred us to another room with bathroom leaks. According to the staff, it's the only room that she can offer us that night because cleaning rooms is not part of her job. Since it's already late and we're really in need of rest that night, we have no choice but to accept the other room. Morning came though, the room that was originally booked for us is still not ready. It takes several follow-ups before they let us transfer to our original room. And instead of being apologetic, the staff were rude and unsympathetic the entire time. Their rooms are small and please, don't get me started with their extremely small toilet and bath. They don't clean up your room unless you repeatedly ask them to. Worst hotel I've ever stayed in.

Nice enough place but difficult to find ”
The room itself was spacious with a decent en suite and had all the basics: towels, a TV, accessible plug sockets and a bedside table. The major downsides were the WIFI was terrible (although that seems common across Sabah) and it’s incredibly difficult to find. It’s on the 3rd floor of a strange shopping centre but there are no signs to point you in the right direction. If you follow the signs to the Switz Hotel and then walk 20m to the left you will find Storytel. We also stayed in Sakot Backpackers (in Kota Kinabalu) a week later and Storytel was a much more pleasant place to stay.

Annoying sound wake-up me at midnight.”
bad staff attitudes after 1 am still chitchating at the reception lobby area. I know today is the final FIFA, but as a professional hotel management, it shouldn't happened. After wake-up made me difficult to sleep again. so bad.

Decent Budget hotel with Good service”
Special thanks to Sheema ( receptionist ) and The Director David for helping me to sort my problems with the booking, Very accommodative and friendly receptionist - they help till their best, I was particularly picky with the Pillow and towels and they accommodate me well . The rooms are decent with basic ammenities just hated , that the window cannot be open therefore rooms are stuff with moist smell if came back after some time with wet towels hanging , OTherwise overall the hotel was good , no complains, should upgrade slightly to give a 3 star hotel ..

Good value for the price”
The hotel is a little difficult find at first as it is in a big mall complex. But once you find the signs leading you upstairs you'll find it. Location is very good, right in the center of KK, very close to the night markets and a mall (with a cinema :). Staff was friendly and showed us where to go for eat etc. Room was basic but okay. Beds were clean and comfortable. There were no windows. Bathroom was small but clean. All in all a good hotel if you're on a smaller budget.

we managed to found the hotel entrance around 20 minutes after made a call. but its okay since we are doing some games and make fun. you can choose to walk to the centre around 15 minutes or use Grab and Uber and the cost around RM 5 .. please ask any assistant from receptionist and they are friendly giving a warm hospitality. nice stay !

direction not clear, like a hidden hotel that need to search ”
the location of the hotel is not obvious.... as it is beside the car park at the third floor, more sign boards should put on. Hotel could remind the guest in the website , provide extra direction to this hidden location.

Storytel is located just above the welcome saefood restaurant and near to city centre. Location is very convenient and it is near to many restaurant. It is a budget hotel but cleanliness of bathroom need to be improved. Otherwise, is a good budget hotel for backpacker.

Convinient place. Near to town and have good facilities. ”
I chose 2 single bedrooms, the room kind of small but its worth to stay for 2 people. Its just fine. The staff there are very friendly. Have so many facilities like iron which you can take it to ur room. water heater, microvawe at the lobby. The hotel is at level 3 and it located at very convinient place. Near to filipino market, 24 hours mart. I gave 3 star fo their parking lot as they didnt provide parking for the customer. We have to find by our own. I dont recommend u guys to park ur car at the star city mall where the hotel is. Although its near and easy, for me the rate price is too expensive. Like 1 hour rm 1. Erk. When u stay here even at KK i prefer u to just ride an uber. No need to rent a car. Huhu

Happy with our stay”
It becomes our go-to hotel whenever we go KK because of its cleanliness, the environment for our toddler, price and location except parking wise. Due to the limited season card, we have to park our car next to the road opposite the Centre Point and stand by the DBKK coupon. Usually, we unload our things on first day of check in, drive down to the parking lot and walk the way up back to the hotel. Luckily got elevator.
