I quite often go back and forth from Jakarta to Bandung due to work. And every time I go to Bandung, I always want to try a different inn.
This time I tried the hotel Sheraton which is located in the Dago area, still in the middle of the city, precisely on Jalan Ir. H Juanada.
I’m very interested in the three leyeh-leyeh spots by the onion-shaped pool. Cute and adorable. So it feels more like a resort than a hotel. But when I stayed there, I saw some uncles in company uniforms having meetings and some kind of outbound training, I remembered that this hotel can also be a good business hotel.
My room is located in a different building with the rooms by the pool. So it’s quieter and more comfortable. There is a balcony facing north of Bandung. From my room I can clearly see Tangkuban Perahu Mountain, Burangrang, and the hills around Dago.
Let’s take a tour of my room first.
As expected from a five-star hotel room, the detailing is good. The lighting is good, during the day you can get direct light from the glass door with views of the green hills, although you can also see the houses of residents under the hill. Sometimes you can see their activities drying clothes or children playing ball. Anyway, it’s really long to see this way. I prefer this room over the one by the pool.
My room is parallel to the Tower’s lounge. I love this place to relax while working open the laptop. This is a very comfortable place to write or blog! The atmosphere is leafy and calm. There is an original fireplace that looks very classic.
Also, every 4 to 7 pm, there are snacks for you to snack on, or cocktails for those who like it.
This hotel is very close to places in Bandung that are currently popular: The cliffs of the palace and the Armor Coffee Cafe which are located inside TAHURA (Ir. H Juanda Forest Park)
To get to these two places is very easy from the Sheraton. It only takes 5 minutes to drive, you will definitely arrive if you’re not in a traffic jam. If it’s a weekend morning, it’s better to walk to the top while exercising hehe.
To get to the Keraton Cliff from the Tahura gate, take the road up to Warung Bandrek. This place is very popular for cyclists. When I was in college, this was my favorite place to spend Sunday mornings with spicy gehu and rosella flower tea.
Back to the hotel. This time I want to talk about the swimming pool. Don’t forget that this is Bandung, so don’t be surprised if the water is very cold! If you are a person who usually lives in the highlands, this is not a problem. But if you live in arid Jakarta everyday, get ready to shiver a little! Even so, splashing here after walking up the cliffs of the palace feels very refreshing.
For food, sheraton bandung always has typical flower city food which is served alternately. At breakfast I found baso tofu and even cimol!
I tried several a la carte menu. For food, I highly recommend the oxtail soup for Indonesia and the salmon steak for the western menu at the hotel restaurant.
The oxtail soup has very tender and not dry meat, the gravy is savory but not sharp, it makes me feel good. The lime juice also makes this soup even fresher. Coupled with large sweet carrot pieces, the cold nights in the city of Bandung become warm.
Overall, the Sheraton Bandung is a form of hotel that I like. The shape is similar to a resort, but the location is in the middle of the city. For a staycation it is quite comfortable, for a family it is very comfortable, for business meetings it is also suitable, even for birthday parties or weddings it is also adequate. And for me, this place is the place workcation which is fun. I highly recommend.
Book the hotel here!
