Traders Inn had been our family's home for two (2) days. It has the basic necessities such as toiletries, towels and coffee making facilities. The rooms have ample space to move around and comfortable beds.. It's near to supermarket and restaurants which serve delicious and affordable meals. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. They will make you feel at home. Traders Inn is the right choice when you are in Brunei.

I like the hotel location simply because its close to a upper end supermarket and ample dining shops/restaurant around the hotel. Thus you have all the basic necessities all around. The rooms are also spacious and comfy. Nice bed and bath towels to ensure a comfortable stay. The restaurant serves great Chinese cooked dishes and Dim-Sum selection. A good choice for budget stay in Brunei as its worth what you pay.

This hotel has a good location to cafes, restuarants, supermarket, located around the hotel. Quite a distance to the city. The lobby is spacious and plenty of comfortable waiting seats. The two beds room vomes with 2 super single beds. There is a mini fridge, coffee making facilities and so far room is ok. The hotel also has their own coffee house. There is no lift.

Searching for hotels to stay at in Brunei was by far the uniquest experience I've ever had when it comes to booking for travels! Stumbled upon Traders Inn due to lack of other options. I stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights with 2 other companions. It's a convenient place. About 10 - 15 minutes from the airport and about half an hour away to ferry port (if you're traveling cross country to Kota Kinabalu, etc...). The hotel is right across a grocery store and about 3-4 restaurants within hotel's vicinity (I think 2 out of the 3/4 are hotel run restaurants). It's an old establishment. Hallway [2nd floor] has a faint smell of cigarette fume, house keeping in the morning are a bit too loud - not with the vacuum/cleaning sound, but noises from their daily long morning phone calls... might be problematic if you're trying to sleep in. Perks: Receptionists are quite helpful. Offered us a good deal for a 5 hour tour to Brunei's main attractions for only $85.00 for 3 people. They exchange money at a good rate and helped coordinate transportation. Transportation wise, please be sure to book taxis ahead of time at the reception - there are only 50 taxis in Brunei (we were told, better safe than sorry!) - no Uber!! Also, in addition to that, make sure you come down at the lobby 15 - 20 minutes before your scheduled pick up - remind the receptionist because taxis here run late. We almost missed our ferry on our last day! Brunei is a very quiet place. You could see all the main attractions in one whole day. Short trip is advisable... but, then again depending on what you intend to do!

I am traveling for a 3-day business trip to Bandar. I keep my costs low and this hotel perfectly fits the bill. It is simple and clean, with very helpful staff. The room is very basic but adequate for a business traveler like me. And there is a supermarket across the road, with a 4-5 restaurants, 3 coffee places, 2 pharmacies (Guardian and a traditional Chinese one), a pizzeria. It is also a short drive to the more glitzy Gadong area. The only gripe I have is the erratic Internet speed.

Traders Inn is located about 5 minutes drive from the main shopping area of Gadong. The rooms are spacious and nice, definitely not luxurious but well maintained and a steal for the price. Lots of food options within walking distance of the hotel.

The hotel is located surrounding Gadong area. Moving around is convenient provided you have your own car or rent a car. There are several restaurants and even supermarket within walking distance to the hotel. The room arrangement is unique as the room I stayed has TV located at the side of bed instead in front of it (as normal hotel does). Overall it is still a nice hotel.

if you book in royal brunei airlines and you will have a layover in Brunei this hotel is perfect the room is clean in affordable price , am just disappointed to their affiliate when it comes to booking. Traders inn hotel have a staff in the airport that will assist you. Jean and the other FILIPINO staff is so nice and very friendly... all them are friendly...

Easy to find , not too far from the Airport. We rented a car from the airport it is the best way to move around the Kingdom. The staff was a bit lost but nice the room are spacious, double bed very good, the cleaning is done every day, coffee,tea facilities, TV, hot water shower, aircon. The super market is just a cross the hotel . And next to the hotel there is a small restaurant with good food and cheap.

i stayed here for one night and it was amazing! the staffs were really friendly and accommodating. they will arrange everything for you. they even offer day tours in some of the tourist spots within the area. the breakfast was amazing too. the hotel is just a walk from the supermarket and also a few minutes ride to the airport. the whole ambiance in the hotel is quiet and peaceful. it's a perfect place to relax and unwind!
