“Great holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Since our destination is to visit Trans Studio and to ease the accommodation so we choose to stay at Ibis Hotel. Just a few minutes walking distance from the hotel to the theme park. Nice room, clean, comfy bed and cool air conditioning.

Dear Mrs Angellele,

A great "MERCI" for your nice review on trip Advisor.

I am feeling very sorry for our staff disturbing you at 8.30am, this is unnacceptable and I already informed our Houskeeper that is should not happen. In fact the housekeeping staff knocked on door morning time to pick-up any lanudry as we try to do "same day delivery' of laundry. I remind our staff to not knock on door and let the customers to ask to houskeeping to pick-up laundry in room on request. Good point, thank you.

Hope to see you very son in Bandung.

Very Best regards,

Patrick / GM

I stayed at iBis Transtudio Bandung, a couple weeks ago for leisure. In average, I can conclude the service was good (as common budget hotels). Hotel service was average at that time, I might conclude it was because of long weekend. Perhaps you could, improve internet connections (free wifi), cleanness of your rooms (my pillows had stainned on it), and please pay attention to your rooms maintenance. I can complain about the food since, I spent my dinning time outside (TSM Mall), however I can suggest you to put more variety of beverage or snack options (traditional modernized perhaps). Thus, family could spend more quality time at hotels at ease on meals time.

Dear Senopati,

Many thanks for your input on trip advisor. Unfortunately I need more details to see what was hapenning during your stay as all actions, services etc are recorded.

Service depend most of the time of the number of customers, now during high season, with an average of 1000 guest adults and around 300 kids in house, even if you give a 5 star service, you may be a bit stress...kids running everywhere, parents looking for kids...., staff looking at better service etc. I have myself such experience during Lebaran in Bali where no service is possible, and everyone complains to the management etc.

In Bandung in June, just before Ramadhan period we are facing a lot of demand and our hotel is fullybooked every night due to low rate and good quality service.

This is really the high season for all of us in Bandung and we try to provide not a budget but an economic hotel service.

Appologize for any inconvenience caused.

Hope you finally enjoy your stay.

Best regards,

Patrick / GM

If you want to visit the Trans Studio, this is the hotel you should stay at. The hotel lobby is connected to the Trans Studio Mall, and you can get to the mall and the theme park in no time. Traffic in Bandung is usually heavy during the weekend, so it helps to stay as close as possible to the place of attraction you want to visit.

Checking in can be faster if you are a member of Le Club Accorhotels, because there is a designated counter for members (you can avoid the regular queue). It took me no more than 10 minutes, especially since I had already made a reservation through the hotel website.

The room and the bathroom could have been more spacious, but they probably suit the bargain price I paid for. Be sure to bring your own toothbrushes and toothpaste, because these are not provided for you in the bathroom. Also, the glass enclosure for the shower was not well-designed. Water leaked through the glass door to the bathroom floor although I was careful enough not to point the shower spray in the direction of the glass door.

Finally, if you want to connect your laptop to the free internet in your room, be sure to borrow a network cable at the reception. They do not provide the cable by default in your room.

One more points, for internet, yes you have three possibillities :

1) Ssk to front desk to use an internet cable (no charge, just deposit)
2) Use the wifi directly in your room
3) Use the wifi from lobby, restaurant and terrace.

For Le Club Members, YES we have a dedicated counter to facilitate the check in/out time, I suggest more and more customers to become members and enjoy FREE membership card and more benefits due to points. We have now more than 10 Millions member worldwide, Le Club become the reference of loyaulty program for hotels and we are so so hapy to welcome them.

Location is perfect, wifi is OK, Breakfast is good, Room size is adequate (Ibis standard), but the bathroom design is too small especially the shower area, it's too small, and the shower door too big for the bathroom space, so we cannot even put the bathmat on the floor bcoz it 'll swiped up by the door when we open the shower door. Overall it's a very pleasant stay at the Ibis Trans Bandung

Dear Sir,

Many thanks for your comment on your stay, a few points to answer if you dont mind:

1) There is no bell on doors...
2) Yes we have some problems with WI-FI, we try to contact Telkom and solve our problem but looks like it is difficult to solve the speed problem...but connection is still running.

Hope to see you soon again in bandung.

.amazed by how close the hotel with the shopping mall, and trans studio indoor theme park. just a step away! less than 3minutes walk. (connected)
.new hotel, means CLEAN :) super clean!
.friendly and helpful staffs

(-)
.on weekend, you will rush and force yourself to fit in the elevator. if you're lucky enough you can go with the first "go up" elevator, this is really gettin' on my nerves thou. as im traveling with my family, we usually waits for the next elevator. (this hotel has many rooms, means many many many guests could fit in this hotel too)
.no breakfast, room rate was about IDR 475.000 /room /night .pretty overpriced then (booked by booking.com)
.no swimming pool
.they have no extra bed (when you ask for it) only thin mattress lay on the floor, but still okay and feels comfy.

Dear Madam,

Many thanks for your comments, I am pleased to share with the head of department your comments and pleased to answer point by point;

1) Lift; usual time people doesnt wait for lift except during the weekend between 08am and 09am where some guest may wait for 3 to 5 minutes only. we control lift by CCTV and manage it according to demand. We do our best for service, fo sure, but your comments will be discussed for improvement, thank you.

2) Weekend rate, sorry ibis is the cheapest 3 star hotel in bandung, please double check and let me know if I am wring but we always keep low rates. This is one or our strengh to provide room rate according to our staring. When you pay your room 400.000++ during weekend it is really good. For information all ibis rate in jakarta during weekdays are between 600.000++ and 700.000++. For breakfast we have done a complete mix of International and Indonesian breakfast, sorry if you dont like it too much but I follow instructions and standards. Until now, we don't get complains about it except the number of people having breakfast is a bit difficult to manage due to the number of guest staying with us is most of the time above 1000.

3) We have no swimming pool and we never advertise the pool. Our customers are pleased to go swimm,ing at the Trans Hotel but may pay some entrance fees. Reception staff can help you to show you the way to the pool.

4) Extra bed. we have a very simple system: your room is for 2 adults. If you wish to keep one kid with you, it is ok, if you wish to have extra matrass, we provide it, and we have some 222 rooms connnecting for famillies. as the room is 18m2, it is a bity hard to add one extra bed.

Sorry to be a bit direct to your points, but our product has been launched last year with clear standard of ibis worldwide, we are a part of an international chain and apply all international standards of the chain.

Feel free to contact me if you have any question about it but I am pleased to see that finally you ave us some 4 points with maximum of 5, means the happyness is there. Glad for our team.

Kind regards,

Patrick / GM
