I didn't used much of the services there - for example, room service or the gym. Judging from the services I received upon arriving at the lobby, the staffs were attentive and polite. It took some time for them to process my reservations but once done, they quickly carry our bags and show us to our rooms. They also welcomed us with a cookie and chocolates at mid-afternoon.
I love their room concept. They have little royal and regal touches around the place that slightly resembles the classic royal statures of Brunei (with the Sultan being the richest in the world). I stayed in a Deluxe Room with two queen sized bed and one bathroom (bath tub). They have two wide dressing tables, LCD TV, hi-fi and other amenities like hairdryers, fridge, safe deposit box, ironing board, coffee/teas etc.
Rizqun is located at one of the busiest places in Brunei (Gadong). Although the location was deemed as 'the most happening place in town', it is actually pretty quiet by my standards. Don't expect it to be as busy as the streets of Vietnam because everything about Brunei is relax and calm. Rizqun is conveniently attached to The Mall (one of the biggest malls in Brunei). So, you can pretty much do a little shopping there as there are lots of shops and restaurants there.
What I love about Rizqun is the staffs and room that I've got. It's clean and neat - a main priority when one enters their hotel rooms. The restaurant at the lobby opens at 6am for breakfast and on my first morning, they didn't open on time. It is a little fortunate because the company has to leave for an urgent meeting that morning. So, we were late because we have to wait up for our breakfast.
Rizqun is recognized as a 5 star hotel in Brunei. Maybe it deserves a 4 star. Very good service but still not up to its 5 star standards.
