Nice hotel, friendly staff, clean & comfortable rooms, good central location close to banks, restaurants, malls & the bus station. Taxis need to be booked as usually none waiting outside, but that is the norm in BSB. Good breakfast buffet & reasonable serving times.

Room: the seating is comfortable as are the beds. The bathroom is a decent size - good shower. I don't feel like I'm tripping over my things or my family in the room like I do in some hotel rooms. The staff: everyone is lovely. They seem like a tight group with a goal of doing good work and delivering...

Liked this nice little hotel in Bandar. Could walk around the city easily night or day. Don't have much to say about the city, just there for stopover into Borneo. But hotel clean, good service, & location.

I arrived at the Brunei Hotel just last week, very unwell and tired. The staff went out of their way to ensure that I was comfortable and not disturbed. The room and bathroom were clean and well appointed. I felt so grateful for the front of house staffs' help in arranging checkout as late as possible. Breakfast offered a range...

The hotel advertises itself as a "Boutique Hotel" and I can agree. Cozy, charming "little" place 65 rooms. Well furnished with Safe box, kettle, tea/coffee replenished, free bottle of water provided, well furbished bathroom. A wardrobe is missing, it's a sort open racks with hangers. TV (11 local channels), free WiFi (!). Many of the rooms with "no view" though...

In search of affordable options for an overnight transit stay, The Brunei Hotel lived up to our expectations. Upon entry the hotel has a modern western feeling, given the surroundings. A simple hotel, the room provided (superior double) was large enough for a couple to get settled in however the amenities were somewhat minimal. The beds were somewhat stiff but...

We came to Brunei for one night to stop over and stayed in this hotel. It is located near the waterfront where we took water taxi to visit the water village. The famous mosque is also nearby and there is a small shopping centre. A few restaurants are also close by. The room is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is also...
