“I got a very bad experience at this hotel !!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2011

I got a very bad experience at this hotel on August 29, 2011 last. We were given a sheet which contained former menstrual stains and other bedding looks brown like never washed. I took picture of that. I tried to complain to Customer Service but the response is slow, then I called the hotel manager and he did not give a positive response, will only crack down on the problem internally.

As Bandung can be quite cold in the morning, will only recommend to others only if the hot water in the bathroom is fixed, particularly on room 307 & 308. Other rooms seems to be not having same problem. Unfortunately we've taken the wrong room. Other than that, this hotel has a good, helpful and friendly staff as expected, free parking, and good location. Moreover, the price also considerably fair, if not cheap. Locationwise, this is the right place if you're a shopaholic (located near and in walking distance from Jalan Riau's factory outlets).

Pros:
- Hotel location on walking distance from nearby Jalan Riau with line up of factory outlets.
- Reasonable price at peak-season/new year with ~IDR 400k-ish / nite (Type : Royal suite room with double bed). Price is considerably fair, if not cheap.
- Line up of chic restaurants located on the same street with the hotel.
- Great staff, very friendly and helpful.

Cons :
- Avoid room 307/308 if you can, the hot water wasn't worked at all. (Stayed there 31 Dec 2010 - 3 Jan 2011, not sure if now already repaired, I hope so. Checking first is a good idea.).
- Avoid rooms with windows facing street (facing entrance of hotel). You'll hear voices from the parking lot/streets. I found this sound pretty annoying.
- No elevator.
- Breakfast could be better.
- Bed is OK, but easily moved if you move too much. Beds need to be nailed to floor.
- Towel wasn't available at room, they'll deliver to you later on.

i have been staying in Progo whenever i go to bandung. back in 2007 once, 2008 thrice, 2009 twice. was recommended by a bandung friend. i stayed in different room for each visit. overall, i'm happy of their cleanliness and friendly staffs. i can say staying in Progo is a great deal. it is 2 minutes away from Heritage FO, Cascade FO, Terminal Tas. if u wanted to visit Pasar Baru for shopping, u can hop in any blue bird taxi and it's 15 minutes awa ( provided traffic is ok). all in all, i can say that i am statisfied staying in progo. recommended!!

Stayed November 2007, traveled with friends

I went to bandung in dec 2009. i had booked progo hotel, after i've read reviews that its very near to factory outlets, and viewing the website on the internet. but wat crap! the photos are far from what they post on their website. guess they have just picked the photos from other websites.

i reached the hotel around 3pm, but the room was not ready. so i went for lunch and came back around 6.30pm, they gave me the room just next door to their lobby door. the room is facing outside, so insecure. the bed linen is so worned out, the toilet is so run down. no cafe bar. i need a hot flask to boil water, actually coz i'm with kids. i request to be upgraded to another room, but they said that is the only room with queen bed. my kids being playful, jumped on the bed, and all the dust flying all over the room. i just left the room that night and checked into Novotel. i feel cheated as they had post illegal photos on their web.

http://www.hotelprogo.com/
the website shows nice bedroom pics, but that was not the actual photo from the hotel. THEY ARE A CHEAT!
. its budget - yes, but they don't have to resort to cheating people by putting some 5star bedroom pics on their web rite?

A very basic budget hotel located in the factory outlet area. It is reasonably clean, has very friendly and helpful staff. Amenities are basic but the TV in the room has more than sufficient channels. Breakfasts are very basic Indonesian dishes.
Location is right in the FO shopping district of Jalan Riau area, plenty of chic eating places. This hotel is suitable for those on shopping and sightseeing trips when you only you only come back to sleep and you are out again after breakfast the next day

The hotel was not bad, good budget hotel located at prime location. Very near to Heritage, Cascade, Rumah Tas, Secret etc. Bank BII also is within walking distance. We booked a room consisting of one double bad and 1 single bed and got the one at level 3. Room was ok, quite spacious. The staffs were helpful, they even discuss our itinerary with us and carried our shopping bags to our room. They helped us called taxi and also did a booking for us at Roger Spa.

The major dissappointment was the bedroom, water pressure was really really low, sometimes only trickle of water came out from the shower. They didn't replenish the toilet roll. But they did provide fresh towels. Breakfast also was nothing to shout about, better get breakfast from outside, there were many restaurants around that area.

Good points: The hotel was located within walking distance to factory outlets like Heritage, Cascade, Formen and Oasis in Jalan Riau. Also, there is a great variety of cable channels provided in the room including HBO, AXN. The room type we had (Royal with double bed) was spacious and reasonably priced at Rph 300K per night. If you need to find something to eat at night, go to Kopi Progo cafe just 5 mins walk. Staffs at the reception were very helpful and friendly. You can even ask them to call a taxi from Bluebird for you which is very efficient.

Bad points: No lift to access the upper floors. The water pressure in the shower was disappointingly low and the heater did not function well. We need to wait several minutes before we can get any warm water. Breakfast was very plain, serving only fried noodles, toast bread, soups. Try to avoid the coffee. Once the food is finished, they will buy them from outside so it's advisable to go early as they serve from 6.30am to 8.30am only. No non-smoking area provided.
