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

I've stay at Century hotel for 2 nights. The check in reception lady is friendly enough even though she quite busy. She let us check in early before 2 PM. Room is ok. More spacious than what I imagined. 2 single bed is large enough. Clean room with large flat screen LCD TV. Jungle view from open-able window. Really quiet.... More

We stayed here for 5 weeks and found the hotel an excellent base from which to get around Kota Kinabalu. All eateries and many bars were reachable by a 10-15 minute walk. We felt the price was fair - 20 GBP for a double room with bathroom and fridge. The staff were extremely helpful, and free internet is also available.... More

I stayed here in December. It was the cheapest thing I could find, and figuring that I wasn't going to be in KK that long, I thought, why not? For less than $30 US a night, you can't go wrong. Well, the room was absolutely no frills. Just the basic necessities. The TV was very old school (not flat panel... More
