This was a great find in the heart of the capital. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The beds are firm, as are the pillows so if you prefer soft bedding this may not be the hotel for you but it's personal preferences. Staff are friendly and the check in was quick and efficient. Breakfast buffet was good....

Pros: friendly and supported stuff, good breakfast of variety of dishes, accepted level of cleanness, very strategic location, airport shuttle services, good WiFi internet connection for free (if your room close to the router), efficient air condition inside the room. Cons: amusement is zero, no gym, no swimming pool, only one international TV channel to be watched in the room's...

Great location in downtown Bandar Seri Begawan. You can walk to the major sites from here. It's 1 minute from the outdoor market area and a 4 minute walk to the waterfront area where you can pick up boats to go to the water villages. Staff was very friendly and attentive. If you book via the hotel website, they will...

Had a charity event at this hotel. The staff is really helpful and skilful too. One of the backdrop could not work well, Allan and his team went all out to help us to resolve the challenge. Food served on time, and the setup was neat. Overall the team is accommodating. Only down side, kind of challenging to find places...

We visited during Ramadan which was an interesting experience. Being a strictly Muslim country, food is not consumed between sunrise and sunset so breakfast was served in a conference room with the windows blacked out out of respect. It was also a Friday, meaning that everything in Brunei shuts from 12 til 2 for prayer. The hotel were very accommodating...

We had a horrible experience here. We should have known based on the price that there was a lot wrong and there certainly was. We had problems with the airport pick up, with the receptionist, with the manager, with everybody associated with this place. The bed was totally un-sleepable which is a crime in our book. Absolutely do not even...

The good... Staff were very friendly, always had a smile. Airport transfer was good, although I could not see my name as the man had it taped to the window next to the door, while on his phone. You always look for someone holding the sign. I booked months prior and requested a high floor and view of the market,...

Great location close to the water taxis. Rooms were very nice. The front desk were very helpful in suggesting sites to see. Hotel offered room service and food was good and reasonably priced. The front desk also mailed our postcards since the post office was closed. Very lovely staff. Note this is a dry country and there is not a...

Checked in for a night for a working event, I came at 2 PM so the room was ready then. Staff didn't say much when I was at the reception counter, signed a paper and off to my room. Room: Cozy, very clean, small (but enough), power plugs everywhere. AC was fluctuating between making the room slightly stuffy or really...
