On the 34th and 35th Floors of this Luxury Condominium in Penang, the Century Bay Group have carved out 6 studio units. All feature fully-equipped kitchens complete with crockery and cutlery. Laundry? Fret not. Each kitchen features, tucked away under a section of the countertop, a washing machine. We give you fabulous beds fitted with sumptuous 400 threadcount sheets. Just what you need for a great night's sleep. And those who wish to surf the net will be pleased to know that Wireless Internet is provided at-no-charge. The less computer-addicted among us, may catch a movie or several movies if they were so inclined, on our LCD Screens with Satellite TV.
Parking is a breeze with shaded carparks and shaded walkway access into the building.
And paramount, are safety and security. To complement the 24-hour security detail, anyone arriving will require specially encoded Access Card is required to enter the grounds of the complex. Afterwhich, a separate Access Card is then required to gain access into the building's lift lobby - under CCTV scrutiny.
With panoramic views of the city and located in a very central part town, a trip the airport, heritage enclave of George Town or the funicular train ride up Penang Hill is just 10-15 minutes away. Some of our guests who are early risers tell us of how they curl up on the sofa and watch mesmerised by the sight of watching over the rim of their coffee mugs, a city awaken to a new day.
Come stay with us and discover a new perspective of Studio Living.
the apartment (34th floor, MB1) was really nice, we especially enjoyed the view all over Penang every day. Central Park is located at Batu Lanchang area: food places and a big market are nearby. Frequent bus connection to Komtar.(traffic jam can be very bad, but thats Penang...) The service of Century Bay was good as well, some small problems were fixed really fast. Housekeeping once a week.
Thanks again to our contact Alex!
Hi Mr Alexander and Mr Marius, Its been our pleasure to able to host your accommodation over at Penang, Malaysia. You guys were awesome and fantastic and we are happy that we have managed to ease your concern during your stay. Like we have mentioned before, guests are always our main priority, and our goal was to make every guest who accommodate with us feels like they are at home. Hope to see you again next time. Take care and cheers. Kind Regards, The management (Alex)
The Sky Studios at Central Park are great. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Guests can really make themselves feel at home here. In fact, I found myself wishing my own home were more like the Sky Studios!
Guests should note that the Sky Studios are self-catering apartments. Other than check-in and check-out, Century Bay leaves you to your privacy. No one will come to make your bed or change your toilet paper. (If you run out, just buy some more or use the spray hose.) There is a washing machine in the kitchen, and a balcony with an extendable clothing rack for drying clothes. We found that very helpful.
There are a few low points to the Sky Studios, though. Because the Sky Studios are located in a high-rise apartment complex away from the primary Century Bay Apartment complex, there is no Century Bay office at Central Park. As other reviewers have said, you will have to check-in at a separate location. However, Century Bay provided transportation from their office to the Sky Studios, so that was nice.
Lastly, the location is kind of difficult for many taxi drivers to understand. Even though I wrote down the address to show the taxi drivers, sometimes they didn't know where to go. I recommend printing out a map of the area to show them the major roads that Central Park is near. If you want to take a bus, there is a bus stop just a few minutes from the security gate for Central Park.
The apartment was as great as described and looked exactly as on the photos. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice location, gym and swimming pool. I recommend. Thank you, guys!
First of all: Jennifer and the team from CB-Sky-Studios and CB Apartments are unbelievably friendly and the service is great.
All the questions and requirements were answered resp. handled immediately.
We had the opportunity to see the different studios as we were a little confused with the online photos. The apartments have a modern furniture and met our (European) taste (if there's only one : )- especially the apartments in Lingtam Pantai Jerejak show many nice details and a nice "public" area. Gym and swimming pool are nice and well maintained, one feels good - especially as people are very friendly.
CB Sky Studios is a very good starting point to discover the island, the apartments great for a long term stay, especially when working in the South of the island - as traffic is a real challenge.
So, thanks a lot to the CB-Team! We had a great time here!
very nice and big Studio with a wonderful few over the City and into the hills. the rooms were very clean and the area was very safety. we felt very comfortable. there was only one downside. you have to pick up the key in another area which is 15 min away from the Studio. it was annoying because of the costs of the taxi and the wasted time. all in all we had a very great time.
We found the apartment very comfortable. The view was breathtaking and the staff at Century Bay were extremely helpful. Special thanks to Maisie, Shu, Joseph and Bhai. We used Yoga Taxis to travel around . Yoga was on time and reasonable. His telephone. Number is (phone number hidden). The bus stop is close by but buses were very crowded and taxi fares reasonable so we preferred to use taxis. Negotiate your fare before getting in as meters are not always used. The beach at Batu Ferringhi is about 45 minutes away by taxi. There is a bus which goes there too. Good shopping at Gurney Plaza and Queensbay Mall. Fruit and vegetables are sold at Batu Lanchang Market next to the complex. Chicken, fish and pork is also sold, but we didn't buy any. Great place for a holiday! Will definitely go back.
