The room was clean but nothing special. The hotel was outdated and needing modernising for the price we paid. Breakfast was included which was nice. The staff were lovely both at the reception and also in the restaurant.

As others have mentioned, the location is good, but it is in serious need of updating. Toilet didn't flush, showers bad, mini bar frig full of mold, paint peeling off the walls, tile falling off the sides of the hotel. We left and moved to another hotel.

For the price this is an excellent option in BSB. If the hotel was anywhere other than BSB I would have to give it 3 stars rather than four but the city seems to have almost no budget accommodation; we chose this hotel as the best of few options and were pleasantly surprised. If I was going to stay in... More

I stayed here for 1 night only and pretty much returned only to shower & sleep. For this purpose, the Terrace Hotel suited me fine. Pros: The hotel is located in a great spot, about a 15-20 min walk to the waterfront, close to regalia museum and mosque. If you don’t like walking, there is a bus stop right in... More

This is an older hotel and a bit shabby. However, my room was clean and fine, nicely furnished, quiet. It was on the small side, but sufficient. Good for the price. Location is great, everything in downtown is an easy walk away and there is a night hawker market across the road which is great if you are arriving after... More

Stuff were rather not friendly nor helpful. They lied to us about the proces of car going to Miri and cheated us (the car was 15 and they,ve charged us 30). Food was a bit disappointing.. Breakfast is a choice of 4 sets (two European two Asian). Rooms very very small but clean. Hotel is located near most of Bandar... More

I had a decent enough room, with plenty of space and good facilities - fridge, iron, safe. But of the 7 hotels I stayed in on my trip around the Malaysia region it was the smallest room with the least comfortable bed. Slightly shabby - there was a hole in the bedspread. But overall perfectly acceptable. The aircon worked well... More

This hotel is probably not the best and most beautiful one I have ever stayed, but it definitely is a good value for money. Our room was quite spacey and definitely very clean and regularly properly cleaned every morning. As we arrived in Brunei after a week trip around Malaysia we had a few dirty clothes to get washed. We... More

It is an old hotel first of all. But if comparing to other hotel around, this is one that is near to bus station and at affordable price. It was only 65 Brunei dollar per night. It is near to some tourist attractions and also bus stop that can catch the local bus to tour around. Staff is helpful enough... More
