As far as positives go the high point is definitely the strategic location of the hotel which is situated inside/adjacent to the Trans Studio Mall meaning you can walk straight into the mall if you're hungry or want to shop. Ibis Bandung Trans Studio is also part of the Accor group so the basics such as cleanliness, hygiene and even internet are always going to be at a pretty consistently high standard - the wired internet here was very very fast.
However, while the rooms look fairly new we did encounter a couple of issues during our six-day stay at the hotel:
Firstly, after a couple of days our non-smoking room smelled like an ashtray due to cigarette smoke coming through the air conditioning ducts while we were out. We allowed hotel staff to attempt a couple of resolution methods (air freshener; and an air purifier) before we gave up and asked for a room transfer which was promptly done - but a hassle to pack everything.
Second problem was that the new room's shower was poorly maintained and the floor of the bathroom was soaked every time one of us showered. It meant we had to tiptoe around the bathroom whenever we wanted to brush our teeth or use the toilet for four days which was pretty inconvenient.
Due to the issues I would probably choose another hotel if staying in the Bandung area - especially given the cheap price of taxis in the region.
