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.

Room Tip: You may stay want to stay on the lower floors especially if there's an event upstairs.

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 centre.
The hotel itself has been renovated smartly in a modern decor. The check in went smoothly and the staff were helpful with queries we had about the local area. We were accommodated on a high floor as requested and the rooms although slightly smaller were decorated nicely with modern accents and outfitted with a mini fridge, air conditioning and a TV.
The bathroom was again modern and stylish and housekeeping had done a good job with keeping everything clean. Our view was overlooking the adjacent street and the local markets (which are an interesting walk in the morning)
Breakfast was included each morning and was served downstairs in the hotel's restaurant. There was a wide variety of foods on offer, and they catered for both western and asian tastes. Quality of the food was acceptable without being outstanding, and during peak breakfast times it can be a little difficult to secure seating.
If you have a rental vehicle the hotel has 4 parking spaces at the front of the hote and these are allocated on a first come first served basis. There is street parking available in the same street but depending on the time of the day it can be difficult to find a free space.
There are convenience stores within walking distance however please note that this is Brunei and everything closes by early evening. A japanese restaurant within walking distance near the water village docks is a recommended option if one is looking for some sustenance after a days sightseeing.

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 consider

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.
