Novotel it isn't in out of town but close. from Novotel to shopping area it's not so far. you can reach to Jeans street, DAGO, RIAU, Setiabudi, etc that all those place are shopping area. but in my suggetst you prefer explore shopping centre by car or rent car.

Novotel Bandung is located in city.

Taxi is easy to get, but I recommend you to use BLUE BIRD taxi (call 0062227561234).

Shopping spots :

- Factory Outlets (riau street, dago street, setiabudhi street)

- Shopping Malls with open space concept : Parijs Van Java, Cihampelas Walk

- local branded thus very cheap : Pasar Baru, kiosks along cihampelas street.

Night live : Parijs van Java, Cihameplas Walk, Paskal Hypersquare (each location has several clubs / lounges)

Resto :

too many to mention !!!

Places to visit :

bandung has everything for your interest : adventour, bookstore, spa, culinary, mountains, sport... etc etc...

I have stayed at Novotel for a few times. Overall - the room is spacious and very comfortable. The decor is modern. Don't miss it's breakfast - my personal favourite is the lontong with pumpkin soup, yellowish color - heaven.

Location wise - it sits along Chiampelas but not quite near to the famous Jean street. You still need some mode of transport to go there. Nothing much around Novotel within walking distance. Other hotels such as Serela, Holiday Inn, or even Sawungaling will be nearer to the FOs.

Chiampelas is a North Bandung road - with a north south direction . Cut in half by the quite new flyover - Pasupati - that runs east west (if you are coming from Jakarta - Bandung Cipularang Highway you will enter Bandung from this Pasupati axis (from Jalan Pasteur) Jeans street is on the north side of Pasupati while Novotel , the South side.

There are a few car rental agencies in Bandung. You can arrange them from your hotel. I would suggest that you hire a car with a driver to travel around Bandung and its surrounding. I believe every Bandung driver should be able to take you to those famous FOs, volcano, resto. Rates depend on car and distance - pusing2 in bandung city in a Kijang should be about Rp350k/day inc. petrol excl. driver's tips and parking.Out of Bandung city - say Kabupaten Bandung at Ciwidey (Bandung South) - price can double.

Recommended resto :

The Valley (at Dago Hills) - Western Food and Kampung Daun (Jalan Sersan Bajuri towards Lembang)local Sundanese food -bit pricey but u won't regret.Remember to enjoy and freely absorb yourself with Sundanese culture, ambiance, hospitality and scenery.
