Checked in for a night for a working event, I came at 2 PM so the room was ready then. Staff didn't say much when I was at the reception counter, signed a paper and off to my room. Room: Cozy, very clean, small (but enough), power plugs everywhere. AC was fluctuating between making the room slightly stuffy or really...

All of the staff were very kind. Specially on one breakfast, they made sure to wait til we finished eating. The room was enough for 2 people. This is a business hotel so office desk was available. On our first day, the front desk manager was very kind enough to let us use their phone for free as we had...

Centrally located. More than adequate for an overnight stay between flights. Staff allowed us a complimentary later check out which was welcome. Concierge was helpful. Walking distance to main attractions although city does not offer much of real interest.

Away from the hustle bustle of the new town, Brunei Hotel is very central to all the historical sites of Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital city of Brunei Darussalam. The staff are friendly. Hotel is small but well kept. Breakfast area is small but food was excellent. Water temperature can be a bit of a problem. If you have a...

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.

Its nice hotel with best location in the city center. Staff is friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom are clean. Free WIFI and speed is fast. Breakfast is good with some choices. The problem is my room AC leaked. I just found it in the morning. Overall this hotel is good.

It's a modern remodeling hotel located in a great location, walking distance to lot of famous tourist attractions in the city centre. The stuffs are friendly but I had problem with the internet as it's not working almost all the time and I made the request to check they explained the unprofessional way or perhaps that's the best quality they...

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...
