“Nice, clean and very well located hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2011

We stayed here for only one night, but it was worthwhile. The roommwe had was very nice with all necessary comfort you need. There's a good wifi connection in the lobby and free wired Internet in the rooms. The breakfast buffet is ok.

We stayed in this hotel for a day, on our way back to England from Perth, Australia. As our connecting flight to England was more than twelve hours so we stayed in this hotel. The hotel staff are very friendly and very helpful. This hotel rooms are very clean and all facilites are provided. This hotel is in the town centre close to river and local market. Also easily access to shops , restaurants and shopping complex. I can recommend to anybody to use this hotel when you are in Brunei.

Very centrally located, the river is just one block away. Rooms nicely furnished, very clean (besides a flat-screen TV, the room also had a DVD player - nice touch). We stayed in a wheelchair-accessible room, but the two single beds could not be put together as they were screwed to the wall... Nice breakfast. Overall a good experience, even though the price seemed a bit steep.

Not an enormous hotel but newly renovated, super clean, super friendly and accommodating, next to the river and the market. Still reasonably cheap. My fav hotel in my 2 week journey, thank you!

This a recently renovated hotel (established 1957) that really brings Bandar Seri Begawan into the modern ages :) . Our group stayed there for four nights (24-28 July) and had a good experience! The room and bathroom was spacious, very clean. Staff was prompt whenever we had a request.

Room Tip: Book online using various booking websites.

We recently stayed at the Brunei Hotel for two nights before travelling to Kota Kinabalu. The rooms were very modern, the service and price were good and the location was ideal, just a short walk to markets, shopping centre and water village. We would recommend staying here if in Brunei.

This is our last stay for our Kota Kinabalu, Labuan, and Brunei trip.

We stayed one night at The Brunei Hotel
- Decoration and furniture are very nice.
- Room size is not so big or too small.
- Astro is available, but no National Geography.
- Service is the best one I faced in this 8-day trip. All staffs are VERY FRIENDLY. I REALLY MEAN IT. They smile, they do good service. They really want to help.

One bad comment is about the Internet. The hotel at this price should provide the Internet in-room. I see many comments about the Internet problem.

For us, we can't even connect to a single Web site. No Wi-fi signal on third floor. We connected with LAN cable, but the gateway didn't work. I planed to finish some work during the night, and I missed the plan.

The staff said technician would try to fix it during 9pm, but I wait till 6am in the morning and still couldn't even connect to any Web site.

Improve connection, make it stable, do your best for this required service, and the Brunei Hotel will be one of the best hotel I experienced

Room Tip: Choose the room that allow you to see the river, great view
