Comfort and Clean Room of Jubilee Hotel Brunei Darussalam – So, several days ago I told you about the free airport pick up I got from Jubilee Hotel in Bandar Seri Begawan. Bandar Seri Begawan is the capital city of Brunei Darussalam. The city is not too big actually. Since the public transportation in Brunei Darussalam is not integrated and very limited, it will be great to stay in the city center.
After did some searching in wind one with an airport transfer and room for 4 (four) person as I came with the other 3 (three) friends. Lucky if I could get a free airport pick up so it will help us to save a little money.
Then we agreed to book a family room at Jubilee Hotel at city center of Bandar Seri Begawan. Based on some reviews, we found out that some people recommended this hotel. So we book a room for two nights since we would go around that capital city in two days. The room rate we got was very good since we made booking like several months before we travelled.
Due to the limited public transportation in Bandar Seri Begawan, we ordered an airport pick up service from Jubilee Hotel. And, it was a free charge service. The driver picked us up at the arrival gate then took us to the hotel. If I could remember, it took us less than an hour to reach the hotel at Kampong Kianggeh.
You also could rent a car from the hotel to go around the city. I think it will be the best options if you had limited time. The cost will be depend on the car you chose and how long you will use it. You could pay by cash either in Singapore or Brunei Dollars. Both are acceptable and have same value in Brunei Darussalam.
The check-in process was smooth and fast. We got into the elevator since our room was in the 3rd floor. Even though the building was a little bit old, their management keeps the comfort and clean Room of Jubilee Hotel Brunei Darussalam for their guests.
Generally the room was nice. We got a Family Room which had 2 (two) bedroom and fit for 4 (four) person. The bedroom was nice and clean while the bed was really comfortable. The bathroom was with hot and cold shower and bath-up. Unfortunately, the bathroom not as clean as the bedroom. The towels looked old and unclean. Standard toiletries also available in the bathroom.
I loved the living room of this family room. It was big enough and from its small patio, we could see the Kampong Kianggeh area. We saw a little forest in front of us with some monkeys were playing around.
We found pantry with big refrigerator and stoves. Simple cooking utensils were also provided. So, the guest could warm up some food or cook a simple one. There was a small convenience store next to the hotel where you could find egg, bread, instant noodles, coffee and many more. As we booked room without breakfast, we bought several items at this store for our meals.
Even though Jubilee Hotel in Bandar Seri Begawan Brunei Darussalam is a 2 (two) stars hotel and occupied a bit old building, their guests gave it a good rate. Most of their reasons were the location and free airport transfer service.
Yes, the location of Jubilee Hotel Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei is really good. Close to anywhere even to the bus stop where we got in for going to Miri, Malaysia. I remembered, in the morning we walked for less than 10 minutes to reach the bus stop. The Kampong Air of Brunei was also just walking distance. I could say that the location was in the middle of everything you wanted to see in this capital city.
However, Bandar Seri Begawan was very hot and humid. If yo decided to walk around instead of renting car, please bring hat or umbrella around. Other thing, please apply sunblock unless you will get burned.
