Stayed at their following rooms before:
- Standard (16m2) - Very small room
- Superior (26m2) - Better room, with additional 10RM more per night
- Deluxe (26m2) - Twin bed + single bed (For 3 ppl)

Would recommend superior room if u got 2 person
Breakfast come around 8.30am, else the food wont be refilled after 9.30 am lol.
Book from hotels.com, can apply 10% discount code
Last month went to stay, cost around 49 sgd for standard room, 52 sgd for superior room, 58 sgd for deluxe room.

That time took the bus from ksl, the bus will wait until the bus is almost full then depart, is around 25 minutes or more :)

The Causeway Link yellow bus is S1, whereas the bus in the second last bay will display KSL sign - can just ask the driver before boarding.

Waiting time is heng/sway la. So far the bus has been at the bay when I got there, then waited in the bus for about 10 to 15mins before it moved off.

That bus station is JB Sentral, between JB CIQ and City Square.

Coming back... it's normally the entrance that has a Causeway Link counter outside. So far so good, it's always been there for me.

Alighting point may be different sometimes due to driver and/or traffic condition. :D

the bus from ksl will go to holiday inn, then danga bay mall then will reach their interchange at the malaysia custom there :)
Duration is around 15 minutes + have to let ppl board + alight ;)

However, if you take cab, it will be ksl, then drive to pelangi and then straight to city square mall. Is shorter. around 8 minutes.

Back from 11@Century last night. Superior room on 2nd floor.
Very loud pounding music from nearby karaoke nightly till 3.00 AM.
No sleep until after 3 AM when the karaoke close shop.
Try to change room to Higher floor but reception say none available.
So if want to stay here, make sure very high floor. I won't recommend the hotel.

I stayed in the hotel last year on the 8th floor. The bass from the night club was distinct but it was not unbearable with the curtains drawn.

I stayed before almost 6 floors lol...
Been there for 6x liao .
Once I stayed at level 6 , but have to climb stairs, coz that time really many people checked-in around 5pm. Then the lift is really very slow :)
Would recommend ppl to book from agoda or hotels.com, coz is cheaper than direct website booking.
Would recommend superior room, around 4 sgd more per room one night as compared to standard room. Standard room size is 16 and superior room is around 22-26m2.
Some of the rooms have pillar walls inside the room to support the building.
Have encountered once, and requested for a change.
Have also kana room with air - con failure for deluxe room, hence requested for a change in room :)

Check with you is there any carpark and swimming pool in the Century hotel?

I didn't see any swimming pool in their website and also car park. Where do you park when you stay there? Is it safe to park outside the hotel?

There is an open area car park beside the hotel, however, you have to pay 5RM. You can redeem it from the reception if I not wrong.
There is no swimming pool nor gym. There is only 10 levels.
Breakfast not much things to eat, except nasi lemak, no sausages or hash brown :) Breakfast food would be gone around 9.30am, and they seldom replenish :)
