Recently my friend and I booked a package deal with a travel agency and they gave us a room at this hotel. We'd both never been to Bandung before and most of our friends who did recommended that we stay in a 5 star hotel instead as it would be much more reliable. But another friend of ours told us that this hotel had just opened and was conveniently located in the central area, so we decided to just go with it.
Anyways, we were very pleasantly surprised to see how clean and new the exterior of the hotel was. It was directly above festival mall which was pretty new as well. Upon check in, we went up to our room and it was not as big as we'd hoped but it was very, very clean and modern. The tv had many international channels as well. We didnt stay long as we'd wanted to explore the mall. The mall was spacious with very few shops opened cuz it was still new. It had a supermarket, handphone shops, bank, a salon that has really cheap services, J.co, a huge food court with a variety of food choices ranging from italian, japanese, indonesian, chinese etc.
In terms of location, there weren't a lot of things to see or do around the hotel. We basically took a cab everywhere. And you have to get out early if you wanna reach your destination in time cuz of the massive jams.
In terms of the hotel, the breakfast spread is superb! A huge variety of delicious food sorting from asian cuisine to western food. It even had a cheese platter and an egg counter and a huge salad bar. Lunch was not bad as well but it isnt a buffet. The hotel staff there are all really friendly and nice and would go out of their way to ensure your hotel stay is as comfortable as possible. They even went to such lengths as to arrange a massage for us from a spa outside of the hotel so we could have it done in our room. So that was nice. They recommended a nice place called The Valley for dinner which is a restaurant on top of a hill. Would highly recommend you to go around sunset as it has an amazing view of bandung. But remember, leave early! At least 2 hours before.
So overall i'd definitely recommend this place to you all. Two thumbs up!
