Just comeback from bandung. Here is my report as I promised to help others who still looking for accomodation.
I went with my kids, my mom n nannies for 2 nights. The purpose of this trip actually to hang out with my high school friends who also have kids... after millions of consideration and asked questions n read all of this forum suggestion, we stayed at Aston Braga apartment for a night. We took the 3 bedroom apartment with 2bathrooms. 1 in the mainroom with TV perfect for my mom, the otherbathroom with shower is just big enough n nice for the kids n nanny, its infront of the kitchen. I have to say that this apartment is nice. almost perfect. And all the other report regarding this apartment was right. Bedrooms r great,the sofa was the worst part so lumpy n looks dirty. in a year or two you may consider somewhere else. but for now its nice. the bathroom is okay, flooding all the time after u shower, the marble floor n wasn't polish so somehow looks so dirty. some ants always crawling... but its nice consider I only paid idr 1.3 for this apartment. It s connected to a mall, the area is nice with 24hour padang restaurant, the swimming pool is okay not as bad as its look, lobby was nice.
Next we move to Hyatt, yes its old but I guess they try to make improvement. We asked for connecting room and even they can't guarantee they able to give us one at the smoking floor, but surprisingly the room didn't smell.... congrats Hyatt!! even some people in the forum say its not worth the money and other bad comment, we found its still okay n nice n good enough as "Hyatt" hotel. Lcation is great, and yes a little costly but for the kids and my mom its perfect. Great bed, okay breakfast, The bathroom full with amenities just as 5 stars hotel supposed to be. To cut it short, Hyatt is quiet expensive but its perfect if you want to spoil your kids n parents...
I check other hotel too, grand serela yes it looks promising, I may try to stay there one day soon, Holiday inn...the price just like Hyatt and I believe Hyatt is nicer, much nicer. There is one FO infront of Holiday inn, and it is nice FO. My kids have great tiem riding horses and becak at cilaki and infront of the university. The one at cilaki is cheaper, quieter area and nicer, they also have becak. the, becak also 5 thousand. cost to ride was IDR 5thousand and 15thousand for horse with cart. Kids will want to ride at least 2/3 times.
I enjoy shopping at FO, Try to organize your shopping area, like dago street for a day, Riau street for anther day, ciahampelas for other day. I finally stay another night at hyatt again, since I was not ready to leave Bandung without going to Rumah mode, its okay but other FO were fantastic too. Not to mention Diaz the Bag emporium... if you want to buy handbag u have to go to Diaz, near cihampelas at jalan persahabatan. It was my first time there, amazing collection, some still expensive but its nice! for children clothes if u bring children go to bale anak at jalan sumatra, they can play while u shop.
What else? The valley restaurant at Dago, great, perfect place for its vies, but food was nothing special, better try Bandung specialty, but the staff at the valey really amazing, the service was quick n professional... Well that all I can say, still tired but already wonder when I can go back...last but not least, rent a car with local driver so u dont waste time... Bandung, its just nice..nice..nice... miss it already
