I stayed in Hotel California Bandung with 20 friends for my birthday trip in Bandung. It was truly memorable and a breeze because of the team of staff at this new but amazing hotel.
Upon arrival, we were greeted at the airport entrance by 4 staff from the hotel. They were holding out our names so we could see them. I was impressed that they prepared the room allocation ahead of time. So they have printed out luggage tags with our names and room number on it. That way, not only was our luggage immediately taken care of, they were able to keep track if everyone arrived safely. Very thoughtful. When everyone has been accounted for, we were pleased that 3 spacious cars were waiting for us right at the porch. *Usually cars are not allowed to park there, and you have to walk across the street to the public carpark. I believe this hotel has made prior arrangement with airport security.
We were greeted with welcome drink, bunch of warm friendliness from the hotel staff, and it felt like home already. There is a bar next to the reception, that became a favorite hangout since we can conveniently grab a beer while waiting for the rest. There is a cafe too, and they serve amazing local dishes, humble menu but reasonably priced. We paid lunch on per head basis, but because we came as a group, they prepared buffet lunch for us so we would be free to help ourselves.
Spacious, clean, carpeted, modern rooms. There was a welcome-platter in each room too. Beds were new and very comfortable. The housekeeping also made sure the rooms were neat and smelling good at all times. Bath towels were quite small but they were brand new, I believe as the hotel grows, the need for bigger towels for international guests would become fundamental.
Perfect. It was 15min from the airport. And easily accessible to most other places. It was located on the main street, right at the corner such that traffic jams are easily avoided.
Couldn't have asked for more. Everyone I spoke to during my stay treated me like family but remained professional. Knowing it was my birthday, the owner of the Hotel has personally contacted me, and also arranged for the whole team of staff to surprise me with a cake while I was having lunch at the cafe. This hotel is new, but has recruited some of the most sincere members who genuinely wants to help each guest enjoy our stay.
This hotel is equipped with a meeting room that is perfect for business use. Modern & professional, well-equipped too. Tell them ahead & discuss your needs, they will definitely accommodate to their best.
They are not categorized more stars because of lack of gym and swimming pool, but they are the best so far in Bandung, affordable and definitely reasonable for this 6-star quality.
Highly Recommended for business, leisure, group travels. Definitely would return on a regular basis for business group meetings.
