Great service from staff - excellent breakfast. Rooms large and clean. Across the road from Tamu Kianggeh market. City centre is quiet with not a lot to do but we recommend a boat trip to the water village and monkey island.

Chose this hotel based on a friend's recommendation. Wasn't disappointed. Stayed Dec26-29 2012. It's located in the heart of town. The museums and mosques almost everything's a walking distance away. The staff is great and helpful. Like the whole city the hotel is quiet and peaceful. Just enjoy life at its simplest.

The Brunei hotel is centrally located near the mosque and the water village and hence an ideal base to explore BSB. This is an important aspect of the hotel as in BSB public transport is not widely available and The Brunei hotel is within walking distance of both the Mosque, the Water Village taxi boat docks and a local shopping...

Overnight in Brunei with radisson booked out , hard to try this. Was clean and neat but basic. Expensive for what you get but there isn't much choice in BSB. The rooms were large but lack the overall finish of a branded hotel. The reception had 2 young men dressed indifferently - very unprofessional. If you have no choice, them...

Good location. Close to old mosque, royal regalia, water villedge etc... Service is good. Rooms are clean. You cannot expect 100% of exclusive service but good for location and standard service. It is difficult to get a taxi in Brunei thus this location is good.

The hotel is nice and ticks all the boxes but there isn't loads to do in BSB. The breakfast buffet needs some help, otherwise the hotel is good value for money, centrally located with high speed internet.

Our family stayed one night at the Brunei Hotel. The staff was very helpful and professional. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The location was exellent--walking distance to most of the sites and close to grocery and other stores. Good value.

Stayed for more than a week in this hotel and generally it's a decent stay...a newly renovated room was a plus point although the breakfast could perhaps be improved slightly on the variety. Should you find your life boring in the city there is nothing to do with the hotel but the city itself is considered zero entertainment at night,...
