I stayed in Century for two nights after booking it online. Got a reasonable price. The hotel room was nice & spacious. Was clean. Location wise hotel is in a quiet place. Hotel needs some renovation. Staff was friendly. Overall a decent hotel.

A run down hotel, needs some improvement but staff were nice enough to me. This is not in the center so be prepared for a hike/walk across two main roads to eventually get to the centre and water side. small KFC on the corner of road, a few Indian/Malay eateries open in the around the back street/lanes nearby.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Good location. Rooms fine with good beds. TV unwatchable. WIFI is only just ok. Biggest issue was no hot water in the mornings. Air con great, but next doors was very noisy.

The hotel room was not nice, bearable though. The staff are so-so. Not too helpful, not at all bad. The location was okay. It is a budget hotel so the amenities and hotel accommodation are likewise "budget". The elevator was horrible, it closes too fast and it was too small. I won't say I would recommend this hotel.

Hopefully it will be better when the refurb is finished, we stayed 4 nights in an older room. Most of the time the wifi didn't work - NB, it wasn't just slow, it didn't work at all. TV didn't really work - there is one English channel but so much interference you can't watch it. That's actually a good thing... More

This is a good buget option for KK. I booked the deluxe room through Agoda and got a good rate. Plenty of room and a comfortable bed. Good WiFi and a refrigerator. Quiet location up against the hill and good location for getting a minivan to anywhere in Sabah. The hotel is a little dated but well maintained. Typical Malaysian... More

There are better choices for budget hotels...rooms are pretty basic and old (which you'd expect given the price).... But, we didn't have any running water in our room (including flushing the toilet!). Sheets were clean, air con worked. Bathroom wasn't brilliantly clean. I'd try the other options first if I went back. Location was ok.

If you want a short stay and don't mind the smoke of some of the rooms then it's ok. Needs updating to the place, however if you are ok then great. Staff helpful but this place not for everyone. They tried to sort a better room but air conditioning wasn't working. Good points, close to shops, short stay but not... More

A very warm welcoming always by all staffs, walking distance to many small eateries, very helpful night watch personnel, good wifi internet access on all floors, occasionally serving very scrumptious egg tarts in the restaurant, and more.....
