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

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
