Stayed in this hotel for two nights. This is a boutique hotel with central location, much better than Radisson particularly those without private transport. Right opposite the hotel is one of their biggest morning market (Tamu). Having said that however mind you that in Brunei, central is almost dead after 6pm. A more lively place in Brunei after night is... More

Very nice hotel which is located very centrally to everything in BSB. Nice and clean, with good service from staff who are very helpful. Good wi-fi in room, and nice restaurant. Good breakfast included, with very good choices of local & western tastes. Directly across the road from the morning market, which backs on to the cemetery that has a... More

Good Location right in the city centre, the room is clean and all amenities are there to meet the requirements. Breakfast is for first two days, but later you will get bored. The Restaurant staffs are pretty good and on top their duty. But Reception and bell boy need improvement on customer service training. They seems to used their smart... More

I agree with all the other positive reviews and good location. My room faced a side alley and was quiet but there was an early morning garbage truck that woke me up, unsure why the 1 am pickup. Everyone on the staff was professional and pleasant. The free snacks were a plus.

Overnight transit stay. The hotel is modern, clean, staff are helpful. Room size more than adequate for husband, son and I. Beds comfy, bathroom modern and clean, all amenities also worked well. Hotel lobby could use some ambiance, very quiet, much like the rest of BSR, which seem to be shut by 8pm, when we ventured out to look for... More

Stayed here for two nights in February 2015. Granted 2-3 days in Brunei is more than adequate, but the location of this hotel made seeing all the sights so easy! The hotel is situated on a corner and is right across the road from the market, which comes alive in the morning with an array of local produce. A 5-minute... More

The staff at this hotel were very friendly - like all the Bruneians we encountered during our stay! The buffet breakfast was enjoyably sufficient; it wasn't one of those buffet breakfasts where you are unable to try every single dish, but the choices available hit the spot. The staff did an excellent job to replenish any dish that was running... More

very comfortable, good bed, strong wifi, the usual breakfast buffet. There are HSBC ATMs just down the street, it is right across the road from the market and river. So we were able to walk to the mosque, the regalia museum and pick up a water taxi all very conveniently. Found the city very modern and easy to get around... More

I had a great time at the Brunei Hotel. Its central location in BSB is a plus- while the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and Room Service and breakfast at the G/F restaurant impressed with regards to the quality and presentation of the food. I would recommend this property as ideal for a short stopover- as... More
