We chose to stay at Riau as its close to many shopping outlets and just a 15 min taxi ride from the airport . Our return flight was early in the morning so Riau suited us best. Most warehouses and restaurants are walk-able from here. Stamp, Heritage and Passion are at 10 min walking distance and Oasis, For men and the secret are a at few minutes further..
Tebu hotel at night
This was our superior room with a long window
Check in was very smooth, we were immediately guided to our room. We were asked to pay a security deposit of IDR 100,000 which was returned when we checked out. Room was spacious and just nice for two of us. We had a good view of the street from the room. After Maldives this was the hotel that amazed us everyday with their excellent service. All Staff were not so fluent in English but they tried their best to make us comfortable and happy. We were apprehensive in the beginning as Tebu looked quite small from the pics but later found out that most of the hotels in Bandung were similar and Tebu is one of the best (trust me).
Toilet equipped with power plug for hair dryer(not provided), bath gel, toothbrush, face wash were provided.
We were welcomed with sugarcane sticks and puff pastry.
Bandung is famous for its landscape as well as factory outlets. All the famous natural attractions are spread either in the north or south. We booked a 1 day private car with Bayu, again a recommendation from one of our friend who been to bandung before. Bandung is very crowded especially during weekends as there are a huge influx of local tourists from Jakarta, Singapore and Malaysia.
