I have just returned from my visit to Bandung, Indonesia. I stayed at the Hilton Bandung. This stay was organized by my client so it wasn't of my choice. On my own I would have avoided the Hilton chain because of a previous issue. This experience turned out to be good.
I arrived early 11:45 am. Check in time was 2 PM. However, the reception was kind enough to put me on a wait list for the next room available. About an hour later, the receptionist told me that my room is ready. I am relieved and headed to my room. The security is pretty standard and that you had to swipe your key inside the elevator (lift) to access my floor. Soon I was in my room. It was a really large room and looked warm and comfortable. There wasn't much view from the room but facing the swimming pool below was a plus. Children with their families were really having a great time.
The first day breakfast was very efficient. I was there at 7 am. I was with my colleagues. Coffee was served quite fast and I got my own buffet breakfast. Food was standard and nothing exceptional. That said, it was a good breakfast.
The banquet staff that serviced our conference room was very attention and reacted swiftly to our needs. They quickly changed batteries of the cordless microphone when it didn't work. I have known of other hotels that will check and counter-check before making the change. This is a plus.
The second day breakfast was a bit slow. It was 9 am and there were already a large number of guests in the restaurant. The servers took a long time before asking for my beverage and it took quite a bit of time before my cup came. There were a number of chefs "people wearing the long white hats" standing around but too few servers. Most of the servers are busy cleaning table and bringing fried eggs to the tables.
Checkout was swift. I think it didn't even take more than 3 minutes. Another plus!
The one thing I am always disappointed with the Hilton chain is that they cannot provide free internet in the room. Most hotel chains do now. Some provides to the members, while others to every guests. They don't even provide free WiFi at the conference room. The only free internet is at the Lobby and near the swimming pool. This is a negative for me.
Overall it is a comfortable stay.
