The hotel is an oasis. It's beautifully designed and maintained. The rooms are a good size and the beds comfortable. Wi-Fi is complimentary, as it should be at a modern hotel. The pool area is amazing, and there's a lovely rock garden with waterfalls just off the lobby.

Requested a non smoking room, but room smells tobacco. Not recommended if you are not smoking! This hotel need to re-assess all the room (smoking or non smoking). Distance from parking lot to lobby is quite far.

It has friendly ambience for a busy city, a wide range of culinary exploration, shopping centers (if you were city people who can't live without it), traditional markets, natural beautiful scenery and places nearby, and many more. Maybe a bit far from... More

We stayed for a night, booked 2 rooms with connecting room via agoda. Overall a pleasant stay, liked the size, think renovation just completed, while layout was quite efficient. Pool was smaller than thought and the water was too cold for us. Did not try the food at the restaurant as plenty of great resto to try in bandung. Also,... More

We booked a deluxe and a connecting twins sharing. Check in is pleasant. Rooms are big and spacious. I especially like the broad walkway from door to room. The toilet is big and spacious too though the vanity counter is a little tight. Having some fruits is a nice gesture. Will be nice is the housekeeping check on the tissue... More
