“We find the hotel suits our needs”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

Last week I spent my weekend in Bandung with my family. We looked around for info/ user review available on various travelling site for a hotel that is within our expectation. Our expectation is not high since we just need a place that is closed to FO areas that we want to visit and also offers a standard facilities with a swimming pool to satisfy my son’s request. Using the criteria, we found this hotel with a reasonable price. I can say that I’m glad to have chosen The TravelHotel. Even it’s a bit difficult to find the location, but using GPS and sign provided by the hotel, you can easily find it. We find the hotel suits our needs; convenience room, swimming pool (a small one) with warm water, and standard menu provided for breakfast. I haven’t got the chance to utilize the shuttle car provided, but definitely will give it a try next time I stay.

We stay 2 nights in superior room. The balcony was locked, so we cant enjoy the view. The voices from the aisle can be heard inside. it is very disturbing. However the room is nice. The bathroom is slippery due to water sanitary didnt work well. We got the dirty towel.
The staff was friendly and helpful.

silent place and good city view from its balcony

The things that made mo not comfort:
1. The road/way go to this place is up/down slope that make another issue for driving skill and Transmission Matic Cars
2. The swimming pool was said "heated" but when i was there, the water is not heated
3. The food during breakfast is too salty/ Also need more variates

Room Tip: Room that facing the city has good view, it is in left wing side

We set up base here when we were in Bandung. Our travel agent arranged the stay for us, so I have no comments on the ease of booking with them.

We stayed in twin rooms which were very clean and spacious. The color motif and decor were subdued and calming. The beds were comfortable and the amenities sufficient. My only complaints are the bad TV reception and the small (though clean) bathroom. It was difficult to take a bath because the shower stall was a 3x3ft area with shower curtains that clung to you while you bathed.

The hotel has a lovely homey feel to it. From the cozy lobby with an upright piano by a window and a foosball table in a patio to the dining area that looks like someone's kitchen - the hotel was really true to its slogan "very homey ambience". The also sits atop a hill within a residential area, so while it's far from where the action happens (countless ups and downs in narrow slopes), it's quiet and feels very safe.

Also appreciated the fact that while the breakfast choices were limited and okay/good enough in taste, they were at least careful not to make the food too spicy. Another big plus of this hotel is the fact that most of the staff spoke at least basic English - something that seems to be rare in Bandung. Random tip: if you're looking for a weighing scale to make sure your baggage hasn't exceeded the limit, ask the receptionist for a "timbangan"; we were getting no where when I requested for a "weighing scale".

Overall, enjoyed the experience. Would definitely choose this hotel again if I ever find myself back in Bandung.

We stayed in The Travel Hotel for 3 days during our stay in Bandung. The hotel was lovely. Excellent interiors, clean rooms and the staff are superb.

As the weather in Bandung can be cold at night, the heated pool is a big plus -- there aren't that many swimmers at night as opposed to mornings and afternoons.

The buffet breakfast that they serve in the hotel is scrumptious and they serve food that are not spicy which is very convenient for non-Indonesian guests.

One thing to note though, if you want utter peace and quiet during your stay, try to request for rooms above the second floor. This floor houses the concierge and lobby, so it can get quite noisy either during mornings or evenings.

There is quite some distance between the hotel and the main city center. This is made more difficult by the fact that roads leading to and from the hotel are steep (not for those who have weak lungs and/or get tired easily from walking). If you want to go out and do not have a car, make use of the hotel's free shuttle service which can take you to different parts of the city.

Overall, The Travel Hotel is an excellent choice especially for those who just want to relax in Bandung.

The hotel location is nestled with housing cluster, its not able to be reached by public transportation but taxi only. its quite far to find nearest 7-11 mart so you should prepared before check in.
it was in the first of January 2014, and my fiance and i came to hotel at 13.00. we understand that check in time was 14.00 so we wait, until it was almost 16.00 but i havent got my room. After lil argue with the staff i got my room key. please think other guest will check in also dont give all guest late check out.
The room is standard, and the breakfast they dont give many options.

Room Tip: request room with balcony.

This hotel little bit far from main street. You should enter the small street to reach this hotel. The view from my room its ok but we can't open the balcony door. The breakfast very limits and not too much choices. The restaurant too small and cealling to short. The bed not stable and make back pain. The best from this hotel is the hospitality from the staff and cleanliness.
