Well located within the Central Business District. This is a neat and tidy hotel. The rooms are neat, tidy. Everything worked in the room. The hotel staff were friendly. The breakfast was ok. This is an area that can be improved slightly.

Great value and nice straightforward service. Rooms and bathrooms are clean having been recently refitted and not too small for a budget hotel. You wouldn't want to stay here with a family though. It is just a bedroom. Location is ok, downtown by the river, market and mosque. No problems with noise at night though - this is Brunei! There's...

Everything is walking distance, including the bus station, so from airport we just took a bus and walked for 2-3 blocks to the hotel. We arranged for a boat ride and we just have to cross the street. The receptionist is friendly and gave us tips where to go.

This is a charming hotel located just a few blocks from the main mosque on one side, and the river on the other. The staff was friendly and helpful, and made my stay very enjoyable.

Great service from staff - excellent breakfast. Rooms large and clean. Across the road from Tamu Kianggeh market. City centre is quiet with not a lot to do but we recommend a boat trip to the water village and monkey island.

Chose this hotel based on a friend's recommendation. Wasn't disappointed. Stayed Dec26-29 2012. It's located in the heart of town. The museums and mosques almost everything's a walking distance away. The staff is great and helpful. Like the whole city the hotel is quiet and peaceful. Just enjoy life at its simplest.

The Brunei hotel is centrally located near the mosque and the water village and hence an ideal base to explore BSB. This is an important aspect of the hotel as in BSB public transport is not widely available and The Brunei hotel is within walking distance of both the Mosque, the Water Village taxi boat docks and a local shopping...
