For its proximity, Bandung still tops the list as 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. Four Points by Sheraton Bandung
Four Points by Sheraton Bandung located in Dago, the heart of Bandung tourist sites. Everything you need is available within walking distance. The hotel is 20 minutes drive away from Husein Sastranegara International Airport and conveniently situated near shopping malls, restaurants and tourist spots. Its 162 brand new guest rooms have everything you need for a great stay, including High-Speed Internet Access. Keep busy at the work desk with ergonomic seating, relax at the highest floor Edelweiss Sky Lounge, and get a good night’s sleep on the Four Points signature bed.

2. Crowne Plaza Bandung
Sheraton is our top pick for any kind of Bandung getaway for its great location (on the last stretch of Dago, unmissable on your way to Lembang), awesome resort style rooms and hotel design, the outdoor lagoon style pool, and family friendly facility and activities. Other than their superb kid’s play area, they also offer all sorts of fun activities for kids during the weekend such as pony riding, free of charge for hotel guests. For the parents or couples, retreat the day at the hotel’s relaxing Shine Spa.

4. Padma Hotel Bandung
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.

5. GH Universal Bandung
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!
