Stayed there on a business travel for 4 days. Location is superb - 15 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes to Brunei town. You won't need to go down to town since everything is already there.
The Mall is just a 2 minute walk away and food is plenty - from Coffee Bean to Escapade to Thiam Hock to KFC and Secret Recipe.
Brunei despite being an tax free country which cost of petrol and vehicles at a unbelievable low price, price of taxi is very expensive. The rate from airport to Centrepoint is about BND25
Centrepoint and Riskun Hotel are under the same parent holdings. So if you're on a budget ... Centrepoint should do the job.
They have wifi on every floor but reception is pathetic. We stayed 2 rooms away from the lift area and even that Internet was a huge pain. They charge BND6/hour else BND48/day - I opted for the hourly rate since I needed to just send out a couple of emails. The access is open based on an hourly time and switches off by every 45 minutes - you would need to call the reception for a new access code every time.
It ended up more convenient to just go down to the Coffee Bean at the lobby to enjoy better wifi at a much better speed, sad part is CBTL closes as midnight. So better work out your time.
Hopefully Abdul Rahman Holdings will be able to fix their Internet connection and hope to be there again soon.
