    convenient; location near the hypermall.

    The Superior Room we stayed is much smaller than it shows in the website.

    Very good

    Convenient place to go for shopping, food etc in one building.

    The glass wall separating the bathroom and bedroom is inconvenient for parents with kids in one room.

    Good

    The covered swimming pool is very good and clean among many 5-star hotels.. and room is quite spacious and in good condition

    The price of hotel room is much expensive compared other hotels in 1 Borneo

    Superb

    The overall experience of my stay at the Grand Borneo Hotel was a pleasant one with its reasonable rates and the level of service/facilites offered. Housekeeping and hospitality of staffs are excellent and friendly.

    The location of the hotel might be out of the way for those who expect to stay close vicinity to places as the hotel is quite in the middle of nowhere except for the 1Borneo Mall attached to it. Buffet breakfast is just average for the price its offering. Swimming pool is nice but the water in the pool is too cold as the pool is covered from the sun.

    Superb

    The hotel staff were very accomodating when i wanted to upgrade my room to the Superior Club. The room was cleaned every day to a very good standard.

    The hotel was value for money and is recommended the only downside was the internet connection was very slow. I can hardly complain as it was free internet however it would of been nice to have more download speed.

    Convenient location for shopping - next to shopping mall.

    Not all the lights in Room 1306 were working. In the bedroom, only one light and table lamp were in working order. Should have shuttle service to and from airport.

    I've stayed with so many great hotels in Brunei, Malaysia and Singapore, and I would say I will definitely be coming back to stay with Grand Borneo 1Borneo kk on my next visit next year. Defying all the negative comments and feedbacks from the previous guests with the hotels we've read from the Guests' Review, we chose to stay with Grand Borneo and what we found was one memorable honeymoon. Great hotel, comfortable and a very unique bedroom-bathroom combination, wonderful staffs and had great breakfasts at Soul Out gbh. And oh, just a door away from 1Borneo Shopping Complex (since my wife loves to shop!) Final say, definitely a great hotel to stay!

    There was, unfortunately, one two regretted incidents, but the staffs was quick to rectify the problems, swift replacements on this and that, and its done. And my stay was perfect then!

    It's connected to the big shopping mole and very convenient. You have many tours that you can be picked up at the hotel.

    You can use free internet connection but the protocol is limited. I couldn't access my company's network through VPN. They have business center but open only day time.

    The room we stay is too small for 2 adult and 2 children. We wait for more that 20 minutes for our safe box to open. House keeping did not clean our till noon time.

    The location is good. Convenience for shopping indoor entertainment.
