BANDUNG - Bandung is definitely one of the go-to cities in West Java, and like every other popular city, the demand for accommodation is high on weekends and holidays. So it's no surprise Accor has opened another hotel to accommodate guests in Bandung.
Even though Mercure Bandung Setiabudi has been open since October, the official launch was not held until Monday. This grand opening means that most of the facilities and rooms are now available to be booked and enjoyed.
Situated on Jl. Setiabudi, hence the name, the hotel is fairly close to popular tourist destinations. It is only around 30 minutes from Husein Sastranegara Airport and Tangkuban Perahu, one of the most famous tourist attractions near Bandung.
Joining Novotel as another mid-scale option under Accor management, Mercure Bandung Setiabudi has 205 modern-designed rooms, all decorated with a touch of West Javan tradition.
Mercure hotels are non-standardized, meaning that each Mercure hotel has its own characteristic in style that usually represents the local tradition. As with Mercure Bandung Setiabudi, the touch of West Javan tradition can be experienced from the moment you enter the lobby.
As for facilities and amenities, this four-star hotel leaves no room for complaints. Two restaurants serving international and oriental cuisine are ready to pamper your taste buds. A bar is also available in the lobby and another is being prepared to open next to the pool.
While perfect for families or couples to spend their holiday in Bandung, Mercure Bandung Setiabudi also has a grand ballroom with a capacity of up to 1,700 people besides six standard meeting rooms, all equipped with modern meeting facilities.
The lovely pool located in the centre of the hotel is also unique. For example, the water is treated to a warm temperature so guests can be comfortable enough to swim even when the daytime temperature drops to 22 degrees Celcius.
Lastly, the view from the room is spectacular. From the window or the balcony, you can see a beautiful view of the city at night to the south or the divine view of mountains to the north. And if you get a poolside-view room, the sight from above is romantic at night.
