We went to Bandung via train from Jogja and arrived early in the morning. We asked the staff at the station about the nearest hotel and were told to try this hotel. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the station. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the doorman and the receptionist told us about the current promotion for the room rates. However, since we wanted to check in that very moment, they charged us the full amount which was fine for us.
The room was great. Spacious, clean and the bed was heavenly, especially after the long journey. Bathroom was sparkling clean, there is a glass panel with a blind curtain. LCD television in the room with cable TV. Wi-Fi is available in the room and quite fast too. Next morning, we had breakfast at the rooftop terrace. The food was okay but nevertheless, we enjoyed eating at the large and airy area.
Pasar Baru is just a 15 minutes walk from the hotel. And the receptionist can help you get a taxi or you can just go out and ride any public transportation ie the trishaw or the angkut (minivan).
The hotel may be a tad too expensive for budget travellers but for us, it was perfect. We walked and ride the angkut while we were in Bandung. Taxi drivers will charge you 75000 rupiah per hour so considering it was the weekend, with the heavy traffic and all, you can easily be asked to pay a lot on the taxi alone.
We will definitely come back to this hotel next time we visit Bandung. Thanks for the nice experience, El Cavana!
