“Comfort Stay and Ethnic Room”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Its a little bit difficult to find the hotel because the hotel have to go to a small road. But actually the location is quite strategic. It is near to Rumah Mode, fashion outlet and other fashion shop near by. The room have spacious space, it was clean and the furniture inside is well maintain. The decoration in the room that was made my fiance and i really comfort. It has character, they put traditional theme inside and the room have balcony. For breakfast i think its reasonable with the price we paid. Not too many choices but the taste is fine.
We enjoy stay in here.

We stayed there for 2 nights in second week of january. The front office staff were very communicative n helpful and the housekeeping staff were also very helpfull. The junior suit room was lovely with a large window and balcony. I enjoyed sitting in balcony although the view was to backyard neighbouring building..but we got fresh and cool air and a little view of mountain in faraway. Bed in the main room was nice and in the attic/mezzanine was huge...Bathroom with shower only was pretty although the tap was broken or loose.. but we called housekeeping n they immediatey fixed it. Breakfast was good although only limited choice, but we can sit there for hours talking, enjoying the weather while watching and fed the koi fishes they have in a small pond. It was only 3 minutes walking to factory outlets and food court and also stores where they sell some delicious snacks. In general we enjoyed our short stay although it was raining nearly everyday .. but they have room service offering local/indonesian traditional hot drinks contains ginger like 'bandrek', 'bajigur'and 'sekoteng' which was delicious and also some snack that kids would love..

Been staying at this hotel couple of times and i will still coming back to Villa Damar if i visit Bandung again!!It is close to the FOs...eateries like SAKA, Blueribs is very close by...like within 10min of walking distance!!
The hotel room is clean and the bed is comfortable...only 1 drawback is the drainage in the shower room is not so good!!The water is not drain fast enough and you will experience a little flooding in the shower room...Hope the management look into it..oh ya...is not our room got affected..others as well.
Other than that...all well!!

Room Tip: 2nd floor...

My first impression was, nice rustic design, beautiful and authentic. I like the Koi pond just beside the restaurant where we had breakfast daily and the spread was good, 4 main dish plus chicken porridge with many sides, freshly done egg omelette/sunny side up/scrambled egg at your request, salad bar with different local disserts everyday, breads and juices. The room was fantastic, attic with staircase leading to 2 huge king size bed on top, kitchen area with big refrigerator and a very own water dispenser with hot/cold water, large living area with 40' LCD TV, a balcony with chair. Really money worth, and it is 5 mins walk to Rumah Mode, renowned factory outlet, a lot of shopping. Was awaken by prayers from nearby mosque at 3-4 am due to poor sound proofing, sometimes can hear neighbours talking. Overall it is a nice hotel, clean and spacious, well designed, & cosy good for big families, they even have rooms catering up to 10 persons.

Room Tip: suggest to keep your voice level low if having party in the room, others can hear you.

We stayed there only 1 night. The hotel has no pool, only a fish pond. Personally, i value whenever the hotel has clean bed, clean room, and with a clean bathroom. It's all i have in mind when i choose a hotel. So.....i certainly will coming back again. If you like spicy food, must try the dabu-dabu chicken and tom yum soup.

Room Tip: When i stayed, i choose room that away from the street.

We stayed on Aug 27 - 28, and was a bit disappointed when we first arrived in our room. The room floor looks dirty, and we found a paper trash just below the side table. And then we checked the bathroom, we found a dry leaf (?) just on our very first step and also the cold water tap in the wash basin is missing. So when we brush our teeth, we went into the shower.

Since it was around 3 pm, and we're not planning to go until dinner, we ordered food from room service. The food was okay. And after that we put the plate on the table just outside the room. When we went out around 7, the plate was still there also when we came back after dinner around 9 pm. The next morning when we were about to have breakfast, we found that the plate was still there. How come nobody take the plate out?

Breakfast was not bad, we have scrambled egg, toast, and cereals. Don't sit next to the fish pond off course it smells fishy.

This hotel need to improve the cleanliness so bad since it's a potential hotel in a great location for tourists.

However, we found the the staff was very helpful and gave a speedy check in process.
