The swimming pool is in urgent need of maintenance with tiles missing on the floor and walls. You keep catching your feet on tile edges and... More

I had a wonderful experience staying in this apartment. The facilities are complete and satisfying I would say. Cleanness of this apartment is definitely one of the main attraction to stay over here, because it just feels like home. Strongly recommended for this apartment stay !

A well deserved stay at Century Bay, Penang without any hassle as the hotel staff right from Front Desk till Housekeeping are very helfful in settling down the guest. The breakfast is included in the room rate. I would definitely recommend this place and beside this i will come back for a stay in the near future.

Stayed there for 4D3N and we took 2 units to cater for 12 pax. Both units were equipped with all basic home amenities. All equipment were almost new looking and in working condition. Rooms were clean, aircond good but only setback no fans in the apartment. So you would need to keep the aircond on most of the time. Our... More

The apartment is very spacious for the five of us. The bed is very comfortable. There is a bathtub in the bathroom of the master bedroom. The bath towel smells nice and is very absorbent but bath shampoo was not provided, only a small, round soap. The hall is very spacious with a three seater sofa, a television, a video... More

One of the nicest place to stay in Penang for a large group. Apartment complete with proper kitchenette, multiple bedroom and living and dining area. Fully furnished with all room airconditioned. Free yet limited parking. Overall, worth the money spend.
