I was convinced by the previous reviews who raved about this place and booked directly with the guest's house staff.
We stayed only one night. We arrived around 6pm and after a long day on the road, stuck on long traffic outside Bandung(we were on road trip back from Cirebon and previous day,Yogyakarta) All of us were so looking forward to rest.
Bearing in mind, we stayed in another Guest house (the same price range as Cassadua) during our trip in Bandung and they are spot on. Clean, comfort, choice of breakfast.
Yes, the staff are attentive and polite though not speak English.
I must say when they showed me the rooms for us 6 adults, a couple with 2 small children plus my mum and my young sister and another sister with her husband, we were all ghastly shocked!
They booked us on the 1st floor. The first room they shown us, the ceiling was mouldy and the wall have terrible damp and smell. Fyi, that room was the one where the emblazened logo of Cassadua next to it. The second room they shown, clearly it has not been occupied as it was stenched with the drainage smell and filled with mosquitos! The 3rd room, the toilet doesn't work. We asked the staff we could not possibly took the rooms and asked for different rooms for the night with AC. They gave us the 2 rooms at the end of the balcony for my mum, younger sister and next room for us. My other sister and her husband requested the room on the groundfloor. All these rooms were decent but nonetheless not as clean as some reviews raved about. The AC not working properly in our room, the other rooms the AC were noisy that they couldn't bother to swith on. The ceilings were damped. Bathrooms smell and not as cleaned as previous reviewers said.
Unfortunately, we have paid deposit and with 2 young children tired and hungry we left with no choice but to stay for the night. Since there is a national holiday coming up(Idul Adha) they said must put deposit otherwise cannot keep the rooms for us.
The following day instead of staying 2 nights as intended, we left 1st thing and scoured the other places to stay the night before heading back to Jkt. They have made nasi goreng(one and only choice m'afraid) which all of us adult can comprehend its spice at lunch/dinner time but not at breakfast!
Certainly not coming back nor could recommend this place to anyone even if this is on budget range.
