Reviewed 7 April 2009

Stayed here for a couple of nights both before and after a tour of Borneo. The hotel is located on a quiet street about a 10 minute walk into KK centre. Very friendly staff and quick efficeint check in. Room was a good size, basic but perfectly adequate and comfortable, with a TV in the room. Our room was located on the back of the hotel which looked out onto woodland area.
Walking distance to everywhere in KK and only about 10 minutes taxi ride from the airport! Would definatley recommend!

We went to Malaysia for 3 weeks and ended up staying for 2 week in Kota Kinabalu. Upon the first night, me and my wife were seriously contemplating finding another hotel, as the room was really basic and the whole hotel appearance was a bit disheartening after a 16 hr flight!

The lift was really smelly and stuffy, it got to the stage where we bought our own air freshner and left it in the lifts. The breakfast was really basic and expensive, however we found a really nice breakfast place in the town centre.

the staff were friendly. however the manager didnt seem to be very friendly.

The main issue with the hotel was the nasty air conditioning in our room. It was really old and the air that it blowed was really stuffy, to the extent that I got sick and so did my wife.

The hotel is great for a few days especially if you're going to spend much of your time outside.

After checking into a different hotel near by, I went out to find an acceptable place to stay. Ended up at the Century Hotel. The Staff was exceptional, and the price reasonable. All were helpful, courteous, very outgoing to ensure our stay was fine. The ONLY problem seemed to me to be the "Cafe".
And now, with the new addition of "wi fi" in there lobby and Cafe, I will even drink a coffee there.
Location was good, Clean, TV in rooms, computer available in the lobby (not free).
Aside from the kitchen, all was great. I'll stay there again.

This is a far bit of a walk into town but it is basic, no pool or other luxury things. It does have internet though. There is many kareoke bars around.
It is located down a narrow side street.
I stayed here as it was where my tour (Geckos) were all staying.
The lifts were very slow so I ended up using the stairs everytime.
The staff were friendly enough.
