Staycation in Bandung? For its proximity, Bandung still tops the list as a favored weekend getaway destination for many Jakartans. The traffic can be a real headache, so we highly recommend picking a clever time to travel ( if you drive, late at night or very early in the morning would be the best time to avoid gridlocks), or try taking the train for a stress-free travel, and most importantly, pick a hotel that has everything you need all in one place, such as these ones we’ve picked for you! Here are our recommendations for the best places for a weekend getaway in Bandung:

1. Pullman Bandung Grand Central

From its prime city center location, Pullman Bandung Grand Central enjoys stunning urban views that stretch out to the mountain range beyond.

3. The Trans Luxury Hotel Bandung

Trans Luxury Bandung

Another popular acommodation in center of Bandung that offers opulent-looking rooms, with panoramic restaurant  sweeping views of the city to add its charm.  We love the open-air sandy beach pool with sun lounges,  the spacious kids club, the elegant day spa and the luxurious room amenities. Although the hotel’s biggest draw would be the Trans Studio Bandung, one of the biggest indoor theme parks in the worlds that offers 20 amazing rides and plenty of stunning world-class show, and also the Trans Studio Mall.

We also love Padma’s Hotel Bandung boasts a spectacular hillside. The first thing you will think as you explore the hotel is how lush the surrounding is. And they also offer special activities not only for the kids such as their mini zoo and outdoor ‘hiking’ around the premise, but also outdoor stuff to do for adults. We also love its open air all-day dining restaurant that gives you an unbeatable view of Bandung’s hills.

One of the most visually striking hotels in all of Bandung; GH Universal sports a renaissance style architecture and decor, probably not for a fan minimalist design, that is apparent everywhere you look.  But as you get to stay like royalty in its spacious and posh-looking rooms, families with pets will love their Pet Inn, that lets your pooch and kitties not just stay over but also get as much pampering as their little foot pads can handle!
