4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

Stayed here couple of times, the first 2 trips was with my family, and the third time was only us friends. The main reasons we stayed here are because of the location and affordable price. Located right behind Jalan Riau, where most of the Factory Outlet Stores are located. The whole stretch of Jalan Progo itself, u can find so many cool cafes, restaurants, and hawker stalls selling from local foods, to western cuisine.

Its a great place with strategic location, especially if you're there to shop till you drop, because u can walk back to the hotel to drop ur stuffs / rest, and continue shopping. At night, you can see youngsters and local couples, heading there to chill-out at the cafes and restaurants. Good choice!

The room was okay, but if you're lucky, u might get a room with hot shower, and TV. No pool. The breakfast buffet was simple and limited choice. but you're going out to try local street foods anyway. Ohhhh n its easy to hire a van to go anywhere in Bandung and the Tangkuban Perahu volcano. Just ask the receptionist.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask the receptionist for a room with Hot water and TV. Some rooms doesn't have any...

Been staying in this hotel everytime I go to Bandung. Location is great, next to Jonas studio, 3 min walking to Jln Riau Factory Outlet - Heritage, Secret etc.. Decent breakfast, friendly staff. They are upgrading their rooms and adding another floor to their hotels and a lift by end of 2012.

Room Tip: Get rooms other than on the ground floor, can be quite noisy during breakfast.

The location of this place is wonderful - it's just a short walk away to the main road (Riau/Martadinata) where all the factory outlets are and there are many cafes/restaurants and food stalls around the hotel.

The hotel is small, quite old and very, very basic. Let's just say that if you are the type who wants all the trappings of a proper hotel, then, this may not be the place for you. But, have I mentioned, the location is great!

There are no lifts and the staircase is quite narrow. The room we had (and a few others that we managed to peek into) are quite spacious and while most, if not all, of them have windows, not all of them can opened out (ours looked out to the staircase!) The furnishing is simple but big plus - flat screen TV, many, many, many channels! While there is no kettle available in the room, complimentary bottles of water is provided. The attached bathroom is one area that can be improved big time - the shower stall had no curtain or door, so, the floor will get pretty wet and glass partitions could use a good cleaning. As far as the hot water is concerned, there is hot water but you need to turn the water to "hot" (red) and keep it running for a couple of minutes for it be become hot. Sadly, the sign that tells you to do so is in Bahasa Indonesia, so, not everyone will understand it, fortunately, we understood the sign!

The room rate is inclusive if breakfast. Breakfast is a simple fare of local food and is pretty OK. While some of the dishes were cold, they were tasty and definitely not the worst breakfast we've ever had. You may wanna bring along your own (sachet of 3-in-1) coffee or teabag though. The staff, from the reception right down to the security guard, are courteous and helpful.

On the whole, this is not a bad place. Would we stay here again? Yes, I really don't see why not! Oh, and, have I mentioned that the location is great?

Room Tip: Most importantly, opt for a room away from the staircase as it can be quite nosiy with all the comin...

I got a very bad experience at this hotel on August 29, 2011 last. We were given a sheet which contained former menstrual stains and other bedding looks brown like never washed. I took picture of that. I tried to complain to Customer Service but the response is slow, then I called the hotel manager and he did not give a positive response, will only crack down on the problem internally.

As Bandung can be quite cold in the morning, will only recommend to others only if the hot water in the bathroom is fixed, particularly on room 307 & 308. Other rooms seems to be not having same problem. Unfortunately we've taken the wrong room. Other than that, this hotel has a good, helpful and friendly staff as expected, free parking, and good location. Moreover, the price also considerably fair, if not cheap. Locationwise, this is the right place if you're a shopaholic (located near and in walking distance from Jalan Riau's factory outlets).

Pros:
- Hotel location on walking distance from nearby Jalan Riau with line up of factory outlets.
- Reasonable price at peak-season/new year with ~IDR 400k-ish / nite (Type : Royal suite room with double bed). Price is considerably fair, if not cheap.
- Line up of chic restaurants located on the same street with the hotel.
- Great staff, very friendly and helpful.

Cons :
- Avoid room 307/308 if you can, the hot water wasn't worked at all. (Stayed there 31 Dec 2010 - 3 Jan 2011, not sure if now already repaired, I hope so. Checking first is a good idea.).
- Avoid rooms with windows facing street (facing entrance of hotel). You'll hear voices from the parking lot/streets. I found this sound pretty annoying.
- No elevator.
- Breakfast could be better.
- Bed is OK, but easily moved if you move too much. Beds need to be nailed to floor.
- Towel wasn't available at room, they'll deliver to you later on.
