Reviewed July 14, 2014

My experience in Brunei was even more worth remembering because of the hotel we stayed into. It was way too peaceful contrary to what we were expecting. The hotel staff were friendly, our room was always clean, our breakfast for two days were scrumptious, attractions were nearby. Touring around wasn't so much of a hassle.

The hotel is located in the centre of town so you just can walk anywhere as the interesting places are only in walking distance. The receptionist is friendly and helpful. The hotel also provide shuttle pick up and drop off at airport. However the hotel look a bit old and need to upgrade.

When enter the room we feel like our home as the room is huge with the dinning room and two beds room.Unfortunately when we survey it deeply we notice that the facilities need to be up graded such as the main door locker need to replace as it already destroy and few others equipment too.We appreciated the staff front desk as they are very helpfull all the times.This hotel takes about 15 minute walking to the town city and few attraction places and also provided airport transfer and city see sight tour for 45 minute.Anyhow, there is contra for this staying as some is advantange and disadvantage.Is up to us to think as our expenses is worth or not

Let me start with the good points of this hotel.
A free shuttle from the airport.Helpful staff especially the front desk.
The hotel is outdated and not very clean.The toilet had a sewer smell and the bed sheets actually had a hole worn through them.Even the towels were really old.
I understand that this is a budget hotel but I suggest you spend a little more and go elsewhere for a good nights sleep.

Definitely a low budget choice. The hotel is 10 mins walk from downtown, and all of the desk staff we dealt with were exceedingly helpful. And the family room (604?) was vast - a huge living/dining room, and another huge separate bedroom with 4 single beds. However, the hotel is VERY tired and old. The furnishings were very 70s, the bedroom had extensive dark wood wardrobes (why??) and the public areas were very dated. We had a couple of sketchy experiences too - when I went to the adjoining convenience store on my own I felt watched the whole time by the men hanging out there, and when my husband went out on his own to get dinner for the family (kids were exhausted from travelling, so we had to keep splitting up so someone was with the kids) he was approached by a lady with little understanding of personal space (let's say) who let him know her room number and that she was on her own and what number was his room etc. etc. So we wouldn't stay here again. Brunei accommodation *is* quite expensive, and this is a clean, cheap option, but I'd rate it a 2* - maybe just a step up from a youth hostel.

Although a bit old, I found this hotel OK. We were upgraded for free to a family suite with 2 bedrooms. Free airport pickup and drop-off. Breakfast was poor, only 2-3 choices, we must pay breakfast for the kid at half adult's price but it was still cheap. They held some amount of money on my credit card during check in but released it after check out. 5-10 min walk to the old city center. When I happen to be in Brunei again, I will stay there again.
