I've been coming to Bandung 2 or 3 times a year for the last 7 years or so, and usually stay at the Hyatt (needs renovation), Holiday Inn (boring breakfast, awful coffee and street noise from motorbikes late at night) or Novotel (not enough hot water in the morning, seems a constant problem they can’t fix). Once at Shearaton but it was a bit isolated and you need a car or taxis for that one. I thought I would try Aston for a change.
I thought I was getting another Aston but the booking was for the Aston Primera in Pasteur. It was a good choice.
The hotel is not really 4 star but is modern, the rooms are OK although the bathroom only has a shower and is a it small, but lots of really hot water make up for that, smaller size flatscreen TV, but is walking distance to a shopping plaza. Breakfast is a good selection of traditional and European food, and the coffee is OK.
One bad thing is you have to run the gauntlet of smokers to get to the coffee shop and that area in the morning is really full of smoke and haze. Yuk. Also strangely no handtowels but the bath towels were big and nice enough.
One thing to be careful of is the street outside the hotel is the main road to Jakarta and is very very VERY busy. Be careful walking along the footpath and do not get a room overlooking the street, especially a lower level room as you may get street noise all night long.
Also has a nice swimming pool and the staff were super friendly and efficient. FREE WIFI in the room was a bi lus, and here wer a lot of powerpoints at convenient heights to plug in the chargers laptop, etc.
