“Not recommended hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2011

I knew D'Batoe hotel from my friend and he said that this hotel is good enough in Bandung. But after staying for 2 nights I realized that it's over-priced. I stayed in the room 206 (Golden Plus) in 13-15 Feb 2011.
There are some plus and minus for the consideration.

Plus':
Located near the center of the city
Nearby foods are easy to find
Just cross the street to reach the convenient store (Indomaret)
ATM BCA is beside the hotel
Room service's foods are good and cheap compared to another hotels

Minus':
Poor parking facility
Passenger lift is only one
Poor cleanliness
THE BED I'VE GOT MADE ME FEEL ITCHY!
(The fact is, this is the vital point that made me suffered for two nights and disappointed me, I think there are many bugs on the bed an they failed to clean it on the 2nd day)
Have to face the traffic jam to enter and leave the hotel, since it is located in a 1 way road.

Sorry, but not a recommended hotel. :-(

Stayed at D'batoe from 23-28 October 2010 for the 2nd time. Stayed at the Diamond Suite on the top floor, next to the lift. The room was huge with a separate living room and bedroom. There are two toilets. Housekeeping is bad cos they the dirt I left was still there the next day.

Sleep quality is bad. Could hear the lift going up and down and the traffic from the main road is bad. The windows have this 5mm gap that emits all these sounds from outside. Mosque prayers at 3.30 am, Church Bell at 7 am, traffic sound and lift noises make it unbearable for a light sleeper like me.

Requested to switch to the cheapest gold room the next day which was oppposite and somehwere in the middle, thinking I will be spared from the noises.... This time round its worst. The teenie weenie mosque with speakers was just 50m away. Prayers starts at 3.30 am and continues till 4.30 am.....

Breakfast hygiene is bad. The drinks dispenser are all dirty and had the runs 1 day before I came back home.

D'batoe boutique hotel is considered 'over price', they quite 'smart' advertizing their 'looks ok' rate starting of IDR 649,000 while their published rate is starting IDR 928,000. For about the same rate, you better stay in other nearby hotel i.e. Grand Pacific, Novotel, etc.

The hotel lobby is full of smoke, so can you imagine your family with kids are waiting to be checked-in?? they only have 1 (ONE) elevator, the room itself is not that clean. The bed is standard bed, you can feel the coil inside the bed, you can see some stain on its sheet, the pillow cover is also has stain and knotty (not even sure it's new or not). All rest amenities are plain. The 'wow' effect they're trying to build is the 32" LCD.

The room wall is not good enough isolating the noisy from people walking on the coridor. At 2-3 AM, I awake >3x due to very noisy neighbore...that's not including the fact that window is not really helping you to not hearing the noise of street traffics or even rain!

How about the complimentary breakfast?
by 8 AM, most of meals are 'dissapeared', you have to shout to ask them refill. The quality, quantity and variety are really really poor. Again, not including the fact that although they say they separate smoking vs non-smoking, but guess what.. the separator is just 'open air' with 1-1.5 m distance :)

Hotel parking also terrible, for big cars definitely is a risk to have your car park there... very very tiny and steep... i saw a complaining guess with difficulty geting his car out of parking (ground)

Room service, engineer, or else... try to call them up... no body pick up !

In overall, this is just a plain standard hotel for you to stay if you don't have other choice.

Stayed at D'Batoe Boutique Hotel recently for 7 days in July 2010. It is a no frills 7 storey boutique hotel. The following are the positive and negative sides of the hotel

Positive
1) Next to a non halal chinese restaurant "Po Kar Tiam". They serve roast pork, BBQ pork, Wan Ton Noodle, Phad Thai, Laksa, Dim sum, etc
2) Opposite a 24hrs convenience store
3) Walking distance to Istana Plaza
4) Walking distance to local cakes shop such as marisari, katikasari, etc
5) Near to baby factory outlet, Anaku

Negative

1) Windows are so badly insulated that i'm sure you'll get woken up by the 0430 prayer calls. Don't stay at the Room 615 side of the hotel.
2) At 0600hrs, the church bell will start ringing
3) No swimming pool, no gym, etc.
4) Internet is by Wi-Fi only and its bad for skyping but ok for surfing
5) Only one passenger lift
6) Breakfast is almost similar daily. except for hot food. Spread is quite a bit on weekend
7) Crossing the road in front of hotel is a nightmare. It is a 4 lanes one way road and I witnessed a pedestrian being knocked down by a motor bike at the zebra crossing. Nobody gives way, you need to braver than the vehicles when crossing. Use the overhead bridge further down towards Istana Plaza direction to lower your risks
8) Can hear the partying next door... Though the walls are concrete, somehow it feeks like they are not.
