This hotel is really one-of-a-kind in Bandung. I have never expected to find a hotel with such a castle-like design in this place. It is really a huge hotel with huge lobby and the guest rooms are also big compared with other hotels. Upon check-in, we were served a welcome drink (which is common in other hotels) and an extra voucher for tea time at the 5th floor where incoming guests are served with tea or coffee and a cake. So that makes the guests have a feel of their restaurant set beautifully at the roof top with the view of the swimming pool and the whole architecture. I felt like I was in a castle (really!!!).
The breakfast is also huge, as they offer lots of choices and if you are not in a hurry to go out, after your first serving, you can explore other upper part of the hotel, take pictures in the nice view and come back for the main menu. Dessert is also fine. I enjoyed the peanut butter pancake from my fav resto in the Philillipnes that I missed since I stayed here in Indonesia. The cakes though are not as delicious at they look.
The dinner is as enjoyable. You have a choice to sit in a dimly lighted romantic place or at the outside seating to enjoy the atmosphere (if it is not raining). The restaurant has a live entertainment, and guests are free to jam with the singer.
The rooms are also well appointed, with carpeted floors,except for the fact that they seem to like the color "black" which is apparent to their interior design. Maybe to others, this is the reason why they get the "creepy" feeling when staying here. The toilet in the room where we stated is also clean, with the showers enclosed in a glass. There is no bath tub, but I don't really use bath tubs in the hotels, so I don't mind that.
The service is good, with the service crew attending to our requests in just a minute or so. I had my laundry express without the "express" cost.
I will definitely comeback here.
