I've been staying here for one week projects in the Sultanate for the last 5 years or so. I've tried other places, but this one offers the best combination of close amenities, location, and decent enough rooms. Yes, it is old and tatty. Yes, there is no room service and the aircon is too cold. Yes, the breakfast is horrible. But if you get over all that the rooms are clean enough, beds comfy (if a bit soft) and it is normally reasonably quiet.
If you do not have a car don't stay here, there are places within walking distance to eat to buy food and eat but Bandar would be about a 30 min walk. You need wheels in Brunei.
There is a big fridge that I fill up on the first night with breakfast foods, snacks, and mixers for my duty free haul. You'll get used to the temperamental shower fittings and the brown water that comes out of the tap with a bit of understanding that this is BRUNEI and you are probably paying less than 50 Brunei dollars for about 1200 sq feet of space to make a mess in. You can stay in much nicer places but will pay about triple at the least. For a self-employer hustler like me, the price outweighs the minor inconviences.More
