Local hotel management company Topotels has strengthened its presence in Bandung with the opening of its Ivory hotel last December.
Prior to the Ivory, the company opened hotels under its Vio hotels brand in the city's busy areas of Cihampelas, Veteran and Westhoff.
Managed by the Ayola brand of Topotels, the so-called Ivory by Ayola Hotel is a non-standardized three-star hotel; a more luxurious option compared to the lower-priced Vio hotels.
The 59-room Ivory is also located in a prime area of Bandung, within walking distance to the city's famous Jl. Riau, which is known for its unique shops and factory outlets.
The street on which the hotel stands, Jl. Bahureksa, is also home to various coffee shops and diners. At night, the Ivory is packed with people hanging out at the Morning Glory coffee shop located on the ground floor of the hotel. The coffee shop also serves as a breakfast venue for hotel guests.
The hotel's promotional rate starts at Rp 432,000 (S$46) per night and is available until the end of March.
