I stayed for 2 nights in this hotel last June. Booked through the internet which was much cheaper. There are two Amaris hotels in Bandung, one in Cihampelas Street and this one in Cimanuk in the Riau area.
Since I travelled solo, so I booked the smart room. The room is small but for one person it is ok. For two people it is still ok as the bed is double bed, the only inconvenience is perhaps there is not much space in the room for 2 people to move around. But I did encounter a bad experience there. In the morning starting from around 4-5am, a stinking smell would creep into the room. I reckoned its the smell from the nearby drain. It happened on both days I was there. Maybe because my room was at the very end. I hope this does not happen to other rooms.
Breakfast was good and acceptable here compared with other budget hotels in Bandung. The swimming pool is very, very small suitable for kids only (really not recommended for adults).
As for location, it is within the Riau area and is close to the factory outlets - Heritage, Summit, Stamp, Secret etc. If you are fit enough, you can try walking to these outlets. It could be quite a walk. I think the best part about this hotel is that it is not situated on a busy road, so it is pretty quiet here.
I would recommend this hotel for solo traveller or for those who do not mind being cramped in a small room. Perhaps it's ok if you only use the room for sleeping and washing up and you are out of the hotel most of the time.
