Holiday Inn Bandung Pasteur Review

Posted on August 25, 2017 by in IHG Rewards Club

I selected the Holiday Inn Bandung Pasteur for this review for its location, price and because it is a new hotel in the city. The hotel is located right behind Bandung Airport. Alas, the terminal is on the other side and while it’s still a little more than a mile away, traffic makes it a 20-25 minute adventure to get there from the terminal.

Uber indicated a 20-minute pickup time, so I tried my luck with the local taxis; all meters for taxis inside the airport area today were broken – what a coincidence!

Once at the hotel, check-in could have not been friendlier but it also took a good 20 minutes. I’m still wondering what the agents actually do, as it is insane how a single reservation made through the website can keep one person so busy. It was as plain vanilla as possible. Platinum status got me a drink voucher (I also got the points) and an executive room.

The room was a positive surprise. It was in Japanese fashion (?!) so the bed was almost in the floor and all the furniture was below my knees. I liked that setup, though there was a little step up that I missed at least 5 times, bruising my toes every time.

The Internet came in at 5 Mbit – easily above usual Indonesian standards. The AC was powerful and the bathroom was fantastic, with a high-pressure rain shower.

The room opened towards the courtyard and was completely quiet.

There is a lovely pool area, small but well-designed, right next to the restaurant area.

The breakfast spread was huge but there were just a few high-quality items available.

Check-out was as equally lengthy as check-in, as it took 15 minutes to cancel credit card authorizations and to print receipts that I did not want.

This hotel can be incredible value for a brand new Holiday Inn, at under $30 per night including breakfast. Make sure you book for more than one night, though, as this makes the long check-in and check-out a bit more worthwhile.

You can book the Holiday Inn Bandung Pasteur here.
