Panoramic views of Tangkuban Perahu Mountain are presented from the rooftop pool, which is lined with sun loungers. The hotel also provides a gym, Connectivity Station and concierge services.

From its large guest rooms and world-class service to its central location, Hilton Bandung has a legacy for being the first choice for many travelers to the ‘Paris van Java.’ Hilton Bandung is centrally located about 10 minutes from Bandung International Airport, 5 minutes from the train station, and a two-hour drive from Jakarta, with great access to shopping and culinary centers.
Location is very good, just 10 minutes walk from Pascal Hyper Square, where you can find a good shopping mall and one of the biggest Food Court in Bandung. There you can find all tasty local foods.

We really liked the room, it was very spacious and with a huge, comfortable kingsize bed. Only a very modest ‘upgrade’ as a Diamond member though and we didn’t like the artificial perfume in the hallways, very disturbing.

The pool was great, nicely designed and very clean. Would have like it to be open a bit later at night (10pm instead of 8pm would be more reasonable).

Beautiful general areas (impressive lobby with water features) and nice plants/gardens. Hotel building in good shape;

Lovely staff at the entrance, reception, executive lounge and restaurant. General manger was also nice to chat to and very approachable.

Very good breakfast buffet. A huge choice of local and Western fare (we managed to try many local things). They even had ice cream! We felt very good looked after by the waiting staff.

Location was convenient for us, we walked to the city centre (staff recommended us not to do this but we didn’t have any problems) and there was a large shopping mall within walking distance. Central train station is also nearby (we took the train to Yogyakarta on the last day).

Executive lounge was good even though the occupancy was very low (we were usually the only ones in there) and the staff always made sure our glasses were never empty.

Hotel rooms are very spacious and well furnished. Linens were very clean and crisp. Internet connection is fast and simple. Breakfast buffet is excellent. But the best part about this hotel is its well trained, courteous and efficient staff. Everyone from the bellboy to the waiters and the cleaners were helpful, clear and considerate of the guests’ needs and requests.
Great Hotel and facilities, with excellent buffet breakfast and restaurants. The location is central with shopping and the central station within walking distance, but be warned that the pavements are cluttered with parked motorbikes, street furniture and mini hawker stalls which makes progress difficult at times.
Bandung itself is a great city to visit, people are polite and the place seems safe. There are some unique tourist attractions with 2 hrs drive but you will need to book a car and driver.

Refreshing and interesting concept. I think it is targeting millennials. All the staffs were under 30, very polite, and competent in their jobs. Strategically locate in Bandung’s very quaint Dago area. Part of the Marriott group, so quality service!

The only hotel I have been that serves Indomie for breakfast!

Located in Dago area, Moxy offers nice stay-experience for you to explore Bandung. Look at it as “hipster” hotel of Marriott for youngsters, you can find 24-hr gym, nice evening-view rooftop, with some entertainment amenities in Lobby area. Good internet connection also makes it good choice for business stay. Decent pricing makes it always crowded during weekends or long holiday, though.

Look inside the room I was surprised with one of the box of turntable, pink light and flamingos ornament. The room I have is Dago Deluxe with a view of Bandung City, room is spacious and really clean.

I was dinner in Moxy Sky they serve barbecue, american food and indonesian food the taste was delicious. Every weekend they have live music you could enjoy the city light of Bandung from Moxy Sky. Don’t forget to try look at the Moxy Sky Deck, if you afraid of height don’t try.

Nearby lobby you can see the games room area, such as like billiard table, jenga, foosball table. Try to beat the game with Moxy Crew if you win, you get free drink. They have a big LED Guest Book, you can see all of photo posted in Instagram by use hashtag #atthemoxy

Breakfast was self service, put them into trash after finish breakfast . Overall room was good and clean, staff very kind, breakfast and lunch was delicious.

The rooms are spacious and comfortable with a very nice view, facing the North Bandung area which can clearly see Tangkuban Perahu Mountain while on the other side facing Gedung Sate. Large bed, lighting is very good, air conditioner quickly cools, toilet is clean, shower is tight and can quickly drain hot water. The room makes you feel at home!

Moxy has a unique concept, “self service” which means the equipment in the room at check-in is not as complete as a hotel room in general. Example: in the toilet there are only toothbrushes and toothpaste, hand wash, soap / shampoo, hair dryer, towels, hand towels and foot mat.

The room is spacious, I opened the fold-able desk that I used for working instead of sitting on the bean-bag which is not appropriate for working. The hotel has interesting concept in combining Reception Desk with the Bar where the main lobby is also the restaurant & bar where you may enjoy the live music in the evening and breakfast in the morning.

I found the ironing room where you could iron your clothes and refill the empty bottles is very convenience. You are entitled to serve yourself with tea and coffee for free from the bar and bring it to the room. They have small meeting room in the rooftop area where there’s also bar. Need to train the staff to be more attentive to guests and try to upsell food and beverage. Otherwise, the rooftop area is nice where you could enjoy the view of the city from. The room rate is reasonable and I highly recommend this hotel for those who wants to visit Bandung for leisure or business.
