“Weekend Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I spent this weekend getaway in Padma Hotel Bandung. We (my hubby and my 4 years old son) spent 2 nights in Premier Room at 6th Fl. The room is located in the new building, one floor below the pool area, and surprisingly face east and hillside. It was amazing in the morning, foggy before 6 am, than it gradually become clearer as the sun rises. We got so many cheerful sunbeam. The room has small balcony, but there were no chair in the balcony..I wish to have a simple chair and we can sit back and be cozy with the surrroundings. The bathroom has one side covered by glass window so that you can see who’s laying on the bed or on the bathtub . But, you can pull the curtain down if you want privacy in the bathroom.
The breakfast area are two sides of spacious room in the 1st fl. We choose the outside area, facing the hillside. It was windy but cozy enough. Two choices of cold (western) or hot breakfast (Indonesian style) were offered. The variety of menu is better for Indonesian food than for western ( you will have choices of nasi goreng, nasi uduk, mie goreng, bubur ayam, bubur kacang hijau, kue basah). While the western only provide you with lots of salad, bread, croissant, eggs and sausages.
The hotel also give you an afternoon tea start at 4-5 pm. They provide tea and coffee with one assorted sweet and sour cakes and snacks, and a cup of wedang jahe or bajigur. Its a compliment I enjoys a lot. We also try the restaurant for dinner, and its quite good, accompanied by live singer who plays the piano. We order a pork steak and lambchop, with unfortunately small size of sauted vegetables.
The staff attitude and hospitality is superb.. with warm greetings and helpfull attire.

Room Tip: If you want privacy, choose the 6-8 floor, facing east and hillside

Actually we booked with Premier Room via online, but Padma had graded up our class to Hillside View Room. So, we could have bigger room size. Even we only have 1 night stay, but It was wonderful experience. My daughter was very happy, and want to stay one more night, but we only have 2 days leaves.
Thanks Padma ...

Room Tip: Premier view also better for your choice...

When we checked-in, there's a nice surprise for us, the hotel has upgraded our room from premier to hillside studio. Very nice indeed because the view was amazing.
There's also afternoon snacks for guests, this was uncommon but nice because the weather was cool and we can enjoy the local snacks in the open balcony restaurant.

I have travelled the world over and stayed at some of the best 5-star properties managed by Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, Ritz-Carlton, Conrad etc. However, none has impressed me more than the very understated and unassuming Padma Hotel Bandung.
All the earlier reviews about the excellent and warm service provided by all members of staff (at every level) are absolutely true and to the point. I would in fact give them a 6-star rating for service. The rooms are also very comfortable and clean and would certainly please the most discerning traveller. Food served at breakfast and tea was great, with a very large variety of international and local cuisine - 4.5 stars for food. Scenery is spectacular - a clear 5-star rating.
Overall, I would recommed this hotel to both the business traveller as well as holiday maker. It may be a little out of the way, but it is certainly well worth your time and custom. You will not be disappointed. Special thanks to Ludy, Adhi and so many other members of staff whose names now escape me.
I look forward to seeing them all again when I return in November to celebrate my birthday with family and close friends!

Modern hotel nicely placed on the slope of a hill. Many vistas at the hotel offer views of surrounding hills or attractively landscaped grounds. In the evening you can lounge in front of a real fire with the sound of crickets/cicadas (not sure which) coming from bamboo groves surrounding the hotel.
Stand out service from all the staff who were helpful and friendly. The hotel was full when we stayed there but you never passed a day without warm greetings from the staff and gracious help with anything you requested. Special thanks to Adly for the breakfast juice recommendation and recipe.

Bandung is a good choice for a getaway from Singapore if you can stay not too far from the aiport given the traffic congestion. Padma is probaby the best choice of hotel, 40 minutes from airport and 30 minutes from "downtown" Bandung.

Rooms good, though wifi weak and overseas TV reception intermittent. Good venue for a business seminar with attentive service, though not quite Singapore efficiency. Excellent food choices and great setting for the hotel, nice pool and pleasant climate. Local night life is limited with the hotel bar shut by 10.30 during weekdays. External activities include great golf and volcano trips (eg Kawah Putih crater, 2 hours away).

We were there from 9th to 11th March and it was happiness all the way. As expected the rooms are clean, in good condition but what really stands out is the magnificent view from almost all parts of the hotel and the staffs' diligence in service performance and their warmth. The afternoon tea was a wonderful gesture by the hotel. There was a tray of tea-bags at the breakfast table. To test how good the service was, my associate and I took the tea-bags and hid them and we secretly observed how quickly it was replaced. On the second afternoon, we didn't return for tea and guess what? There was a tray of tea-treats waiting for us in the room. These are just some of the lovely gesture put together by the hotel, nevertheless small but thoughtful. And it is not just in the food & beverage area! Something you can hardly expect from a hotel that has an almost full occupancy rate. They've won us over and we will most definitely return.

Room Tip: Try to ask for rooms that are above the swimming-pool level to get a view of the lush greenery.
