“Decent budget hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

The hotel is suitable for those that only need a place to sleep. The room is considerably small. I don't think it can fit an extra bed. They provide 2 towels, two toothbrush, 1 pair of sandals and liquid soap. No other amenities like shower cap, hand tower, comb or hair dry. Swimming pool is located at the side of the lobby, a small pool that is not intended for adult. It is a decent budget hotel but don't expect a lot. Breakfast is in small cafetaria near front office. Taxi is quite easy to find.

This hotel is located in Cihampelas, one of the shopping streets in Bandung. If you take shutter bus from Jakarta, it is very convenient as most of the shutter bus operators such as CItitrans, Cipaganti, X-trans are located here too. Basically the hotel room is clean, but very small, No hot water is provided in the hotel room, you have to get it from the hot and cold water dispenser outside the corridor. No hair dryer is provided, not even when you request it from the front desk. The towel hanger is beyond my reach(this is the first time I saw such high towel hanger) Breakfast is lousy. Sound insulation of the room is extremely bad too! You could hear people talking,laughing.. outside your room.
The rate for this hotel is not cheap as compared to the services and facility they provided.

i stayed in Amaris Cihampelas for one night on the way to Jogjakarta. I called them in the morning to make a reservation, but they said the hotel had a lot of vacant rooms so no need to make a reservation. I was also informed the best available rate for that day and the credit card promotion which luckily i happen to be the cardholder (FYI Best Available Rate in Bandung changes everyday and even everyminute!).

The hotel situated in a very strategic location in Cihampelas. They have quite wide parking area, a clean lobby. i arrived around 9.30 pm and i didn't notice any bellman or doorman which i didn't mind as i carried a light luggage and anyway it's a budget hotel.

I checked in and the front desk was very efficient yet sincere. The typical Sundanese hospitality. The rate she offered was higher than the rate offered by the operator, fortunately i remembered the name of the operator.

as i went to the room, i noticed that the hotel is quite unique, they maximize every space available to be functional. The room was quite small but sufficient for us and by the way they only have one type of room, only you can choose the bed type, twin or queen size. Do not except a beautiful view here.

The bed was comfortable, a bit too soft my boyfriend said. However, the room is quite clean only i found a shampoo sachet from the previous guest which probably accidentally dropped from the garbage bag of the housekeeping staff.

The TV has lot of channels, we got 2 complimentary bottles of water and if it is not enough they also has water dispenser in the corridor. They have hot water shower which sometimes after 15 minutes showering it become less hot.

The breakfast was sufficient, there was egg corner, cereal, toast and other indonesian breakfast.

They also have a swimming pool which is surprising, although it is a tiny swimming pool but it's okay.

Overall my stay was good, the glitch is only i found stain on the bed linen and towel which i think they should replace it.

i bought the hotel voucher from the hotel website 2-3 weeks before my stay and the price was incredible, half from anywhere.
i am from jakarta and haven't traveled to Bandung for more than 2 years and i have no idea that cihampelas was a street with crazy traffic. when we reached here on sunday afternoon, it was a crazy traffic, to shorten the time, i got out from the car-walked and did the check in. i didnt expect something fabulous from the hotel, i just need a place to stay with new style-minimalist. i like this kind of style.
then i got into the room, yeah it was minimalist-tune hotels kind of style, small but this one with small open wardrobe-at least few hangers available, new lcd tv,2 comfortable bed (size is bigger than usual single size), no refrigerator but water dispenser is avalaible in each floor. yeah this is new hotel and too bad they choose a terrible bathroom style-it's a mix between dry and wet which ended as wet. i don't know why some hotels do not want to put the barrier between the shower area and the wash basin+toilet to avoid the rest of the bathroom getting wet. so i'm a bit disappointed with the bathroom beside the shower which is already broken just within months since the opening. i didn't report it cause i was busy going around bandung.
my family who had breakfast was also disappointed with the breakfast variation. i dont care about breakfast, i'd prefer having traditional food around the hotel.
i'll surely comeback to this hotel but not the one in cihampelas perhaps the other one in cimanuk-just to avoid the crazy traffic.

Room Tip: make sure 2 check the hotel website from time 2 time in case you want 2 visit bandung, u never know...

location is good, as you may all know. cihampelas is one of the famous shopping street in bandung. it is a new hotel. the room size is actually okay if you are having a bed & breakfast stay. the main issue is the rates, eventhough i was in a group of 14 rooms i would still say it is overpriced. everything is okay for a budget hotel, e.g. room size, location, breakfast, bed.
except the rates. they didnt clean the toilet bowl clean enough, whatever it is, the stained shouldnt be there

Spend a night at amaris hotel bandung, back in may 2011.
it was a small cosy room, which was basically enough for a days trip of shopping.

the room was not ready when we arrived at the check in time, but they managed to give us a room within the next 30 minutes.

breakfast spread was generally ok, nothing fancy, just about right to get you started in the morning.

quite a number of FO in this location, which is a walking distance from the hotel.

overall i would rate it as ok.
