Just don't bother with any of the other holes in BSB, go straight here!!! We have travelled around Asia for the past 7 months, and have also travelled a fair bit over the years, and I can confidentially say that I have never been looked after so well by the staff.
We had booked into a standard room for B$70.00/nt, due to a $10.00 discount they currently have. On arrival we were upgraded to a junior suite with a lounge, dining, fully functional kitchen, hot shower with lots of pressure. As this is Brunei, the bedroom have 2 king singles instead of a queen bed, which we sorted for ourselves. This is also the first hotel where we got 2 large plush white towels each. The room is serviced daily, and all clean linen provided. The sheets are good quality thick, white ,crisp, with fat pillows- heaven.
Everytime we go to the foyer, we are asked where we are off to, and offered to be driven there. They drove us to a restaurant which specialises in traditional Bruneian food, and were ready to pick us up again after lunch!! They organised a day jungle trek and canopy walk with a local company, which was also amazing(I'll try to review that separately). They even drove us to the Malaysian Technology Museum(well worth a visit) and picked us up again 90min. later.
All of this for less than $100.00/ nt, which is my benchmark on this trip.
The hotel is located exactly behind the Pusat Belia Youth Hostel, and is 10 min. walk away from the waterfront, and about 2 min. walk from the night food market. It is in easy walking distance to the Royal Regalia Museum, the mosque, and the water village.
