Reviewed 4 January 2014

Four friends and I stayed here two nights. We had a twin room and the studio that we booked using booking.com. It was very, very nice. The beds were comfortable and soft and everything was very clean. The house itself is very beautiful, with lots of sitting areas for relaxing outside of the room. The breakfast was good, but standard rice, fruit, coffee, etc. Wifi worked well throughout the property.

The location is AMAZING. It's located in a gated community with TONS of nice, nice expensive houses and lots of beautiful trees and landscaping. My only advice is don't go to the street that's just one block away for food. There are lots of stalls, yes, but they refused us as we nor they spoke English. They weren't mean or rude to us, they just said no. We did manage to go to the restaurant on the corner nearby and it was amazing (but, with our lack of Bahasa, we ordered the same dish four different ways on accident).

The best place to go is to the other side of the gated neighborhood, a little further walk, but there are many more proper restaurants and cafes. I know these directions might seem vague, but I can't remember street names. The big street behind the house is the best one (not the one just right out the front of the house).

The staff does not speak English very well. I understand that I'm in a different country and that the world doesn't speak English, BUT it does make it difficult to communicate things at times. Slowly but surely, they understood us and we booked a car for the day (650,000 including gas, parking, etc - no lunch required) and also a car back to Jakarta (850,000 including ALL tolls and gas). We did tip 50 for the day trip around Bandung and 100 for the Jakarta driver. We actually had a local guest communicate for us and translate when the guest was around.

Getting a taxi here from the train station is impossible (we paid a gypsy van 75,000 for all five of us...and it was all we could find)! Also, getting a taxi to other areas didn't happen and we even called Blue Bird.

I stayed for 3 nights. The room was pretty huge, clean, and full of facilities (AC, cable TV, microwave, water dispenser, refrigerator with freezer, bathtub and a separated shower cubicle, instant coffee and tea). The staff was very kind and friendly. They're serving with heart and really helpful. Their administrative matters were really flexible. I didn't have to complete the administrative things right after I arrived, and the check-out time was also flexible (I checked out 2 hours late and no charge was applied).

For those who wants to get away from the noise but still wanna be close to the shopping and culinary spots, this place is highly recommended!

Room Tip: 'Studio' room with twin bed can accommodate 4-6 persons (adult) because there's a foldin...

Located in the Bandung city center, but seemed to be on the outskirts of a quiet and peaceful town. Located in a strategic location, easy to get to the various tourist sites located in downtown Bandung.
The location also very closed to Dago Street, so on Sunday Morning you can enjoy the Car Free Day. Just take a walk or jogging, feel the fresh air, and try the local food that served by hawkers.
The botel facilities are clean and complete, plus a pretty good wifi network. But if you want to try some local food, there's a lot of restaurant or cafe closed to the hotel.

Simply awesome and outstanding place. Very calm and peaceful, yet very close to main road. The rooms have attached kitchen with required utilities. As we prefer vegetarian food, we did not taste their food, but we comfortably made our own meals. Beds are huge and comfortable, cleanliness of room is perfect, washrooms have every required facilities.....overall the place is best and we had no complains.....

It was beyond my expectation. Thumbs up to Rumah Aca.

if you need to stay in undisturb place and yet taste the local delicacies like ayam, ikan penyet etc (I love the murtabak manis too), it is just located across the street.

You should consider going to this place. I love the hospitality of Rumah Aca. Friendly staff and boss. (",)

Room Tip: I booked room type D1. It is good enough.
