This building was designed by Wolff Schoemaker, a Dutch architect. It is one of the most iconic building in the city, representing the Art Deco style which is very romantic in its shapes, now it is the location of UPI (Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia), one might say that it is better to have this building as part of a university for...

I wanted to review this Art Deco Magnifique but unfortunately ran out of time when visiting this uber cool city. I have seen other rather uncool reviews of this coolest of cool Deco buildings and look forward to giving it the total thumbs up approval .I am astounded that anyone can denigrate such a profound icon. I myself owned and... More

We saw on TripAdvisor that villa isola was a nice building to see. Going to the volcano we would pass it anyway so we decided to visit it. You have to like the style. But it you like Art Deco, it is a must see! Very nice!

It's a lovely building, but back to the 1930s - 1950s the condition of the villa (including its fish pond, fountain, park, garage), was much more beautiful than it is now. (It almost became the villa for Queen Wilhelmina of Netherlands in 1930s) The difference can be clearly seen from the old photos. But, it's worth a visit, especially if... More

Some people do not enter. Beside, the roof top is nice to see Bandung City View. If you want to go to there, i suggest you to take with who can explain about the history because if you know, the history of this building is very interesting.

It can be one of your choice to see and visit. It is a kind of visit that leaves you breathless and bring back memories.The Environment is inviting and a great place for student to study. A big library, mosque, car park and most importantly a toilet is available. In addition there is free admission.
