There are different parts of Bandung that you can choose to stay - Setiabudhi, Dago, Lembang.

I stayed here on this trip, as I find it convenient to move around. In fact, you could walk to the Rumah Mode from Grand Serela Setiabudhi Hotel. Asmila Boutique Hotel is directly opposite to the Rumah Mode outlet.

1. Grand Serela Setiabudhi (4 *)

This 4 star hotel is located in Setiabudhi, and it is wonderful location, as you could just walk 5-10 minutes to the famous Rumah Mode Shopping Outlet. And I could find food just a short walk from the hotel. I paid 15,000 Rp for my dinner which consists of 10 sticks of chicken satay, and rice.
There is a fitness centre, and rooms are available for meetings. Swimming pool is outside, and a spa is available. This is a good hotel , which is clean, and quiet. Thus, this is very ideal for a short stay, as well as for families and meetings.

2. Banana Inn Hotel & Spa (4 *)

This hotel is located in Setiabudhi, and again is close by to the outlet shopping mall of Rumah Mode. There are rooms for convention, and a lovely outdoor pool. I ate my dinner for the first night at the Banana Inn, and the food was fantastic. The famous Bandung Grilled Oxtail (Bakar), served with soup, and steam rice. Do go for their spa here. Javanese/Balinese massage, and facial treatments are available.
Anyway, this hotel has good rating from Tripadvisor.com.
3. Villa Damar (3 *)
This hotel is located close by the Rumah Mode Shopping Outlet.

I love the location of this Hotel. It offers stunning views of the mountains, and is surrounded by lush greenery. You could see such serene environment from the lobby, the restaurants, the pool and the rooms. The rooms come with balcony which affords views of the mountains.
Spa, Fitness, and Yoga lessons could be arranged.
Team building activities can also be conducted with the hotel's own instructors.

You must go to Kampung Daun for a meal. I missed enjoying a meal at The Valley, where you could see the sunset , as it was closed when I was in Bandung.
Grilled Oxtail , served with soup and steamed rice.

Nasi Timbel Bakar - Grilled Rice wrapped in banana leaf, and served with fried chicken, tofu & sautéed vegetables.




Passenger Service Tax (Airport Departure Tax) - 75,000 Rp

Pay 75,000 Rp for the use of the airport lounge

With food, drinks and WIFI.

Extra service, the lounge staff can help to make arrangement to pay for the passenger departure tax – 75,000

Stamping of passport at Immigration
Note – Immigration opens at 11am, so if you arrive early, you cannot go to Immigration, and thus with no boarding pass, you cannot pay for the passenger departure tax.

I went to Bandung from the 11-13Feb 2014. So the information is correct as per my last visit.
