We live at the other end of Brunei and often want to stay over in the capital either at the weekend or when we have family visiting. The Radisson can be expensive and the overly ostentatious (and badly catered) Empire don't really do it so the revamped Brunei hotel is a fantastic addition. Rooms are comfortable with good bed linen... More

Brunei Hotel is a very nice hotel after the new owners modernized it. It is very central, walking distance to all the attractions. The decor is modern, the staff are friendly, wifi in the room and in the reception area. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to all travelers. Price is also very reasonable.

Ignore any older reviews on this Hotel... it has been completely refurbished very nicely, is well run and great staff. When booking we selected it for its location aware of some negative reviews that were pre refurbishment but the place was fantastic... a boutique style close to the water front and central Banda town area. Nice restaurant and good breakfast.

When we started to look out for hotels in Brunei, we were put off by every other hotel either because of bad review or exorbitant tariff. Finally, a review of renovated 'Brunei Hotel' on 'Brunei Times' prompted me to give it a try, so I contacted Brunei Hotel's staff Mr Azmil & Ms Lovena. they were very helpful in assisting... More

Our brief stay at the Brunei Hotel was pure joy. Attentive staff, smart and trendy design and a good restaurant as well as the central location just opposite the pittoresque open market contributed to the good time we had in Brunei.

Certainly not a 5 star hotel, but Hotel Brunei offers affordable accommodation within walking distances of all of Bandar Seri Begawan's sights. The morning vegetation markets are located immediately across the road and canal, the Brunei Rivers is a short stroll down the road, and the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque and nearby mall are only a 10 min walk...
