“The Only Indian Food Restaurant in Bandung”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

The review relates to the " Pago' Restaurant, which offers reasonable Indian selection on asking. They dont have an Indian food on menu , but they do have chefs trained on Indian food , who prepare good dishes.
The place is exotic and service is excellent.
We had Aloo Gobhi, Malai Koft and Allo matar and all three were good. There is a great selection of wine to pair with your food. The pakora starters are also nice.
Though, I have been booking the hotel for my guest in the hotel and all of them have a good review, but I have myself still to experience the rooms.
Now the lovers of Indian food have an option . The other two so called Indian restaurants, " Taste of India" and " Curry House" are both Malaysian food with Indian offerings and do not really qualify to be authentic Indian.

The exterior of this hotel might not be as good as the Trans Luxury Hotel just a few mile from the Papandayan. But if you want to feel like Royalty. This is the place to stay. The service is superb. The rooms very well maintained. Pillows, bed sheet. Towels are very white, and smells real good. The room is big, the bathroom as well. And the culinary food is out of this world. Its perfect. The coffee served here is one of the best i've ever drink. And the Ayam Klaten Papandaynan is Glorious

We spent a night here with my family of 3 yo and 1 yo baby plus a maid and a driver. The location was very good. It was at the centre of Bandung and had easy access everywhere. There were many restaurants nearby and also only 5-10 minutes away from the famous trans studio. Actually It was an old hotel but I guess it was renovated couple of years before. The room was spacious and sufficient for my family. My maid and my driver could stay at the small hotel accross the street with very affordable price, not more than IDR 110k (~10 usd) per room per night. So I would recommend this hotel if you travel with driver/maid/baby sitter. We also liked the classic design that the papandayan had. The bathroom was also very good and spacious. We also liked the swimming pool. The hotel staffs were also nice and helpfull, very efficient in the process of checking in and checking out. The only minus point was only the breakfast. It was substandard for 4-5 star hotel in term of quality and menu. But we thought that it was a minor point and we surely will return.

The staff are nice and friendly, also there's a nice pool.

I have high expectation with papandayan hotel since its number 2 in tripadvisor rank. But papandayan failed to impressed me. The service is poor. Front desk is not friendly AT ALL. I was booked ambassador club rooms but they gave me classic room with no pass to excutive lounge. And i just realized it when i already in the room so i have to moved to another room in another floor. The reservation told me that i will be moved to 4th floor but the officer who come into my room told me that i will be moved to 3rd floor. So its confusing and takes a lot of time. Disappointing. The room is quite small for a 5 stars hotel. The garden is under renovation.

Its not a bad hotel though,
The room is clean
The bathroom is great
The only staff who has been friendly is the one at executive lounge, i forgot his name.
The food is delicious.

So its not a bad hotel. But considering its a five star hotel and its number 2 in tripadvisor rank hotel in bandung, for me its disappointing.

We've stayed here on February 2013 for one night only. We got the Premiere room with king-size bed. The Papandayan is located in the center of Bandung city.

Plus:
1. You will get good sleeping quality. The bed was comfortable.. Clean and neat.
2. Each room has bathtub and shower.
3. Cable-TV
4. Lux room-interior
5. Polite staff

Minus:
1. The breakfast menu. I tasted chicken porridge, baked potato, dimsum, etc.. And the taste was not too delicious... Under my expectation..
2. Parking lot which located in backside hotel and don't have direct access door to reach hotel..

Room Tip: Tips : Valet parking for IDR 20,000 / 1x paid only

Me,hubby and our 2 year old son stayed in the hotel for 2 nights.
We actually got lost looking for this hotel ,we ended up calling the hotel for directions.
Located at Jalan Gatot Subroto...friendly staffs but they weren't that good at giving directions on where to go lol but to be fair Bandung streets are a bit confusing .
The bathroom was spacious,the room clean except the carpet was a little dirty .
Breakfast was okay,they need more varieties of foods.
The pool was cool ,my 2 year old rugrat was shivering lol so a heated pool might be a good idea,
We were in Bandung to celebrate our son's birthday so i decided to look at their cakes selections at the deli .They were paying attention because the following day(our son's birthday)they sent us a chocolate cake as a compliment which i think was very nice :)
Overall its a very nice hotel with friendly staffs and we might actually come back next time.
