Serena Hotel Bandung
Ranked #227 of 322 Bandung B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 April 2012

This hotel has a great location across the road from the train station. It is down a small laneway so it is away from the noise of the trains and the traffic. The staff were very friendly and helpful even though they looked so young! The room prices are quite expensive i arrived late at night with no booking and it was no problem to get a room. The decor was very dark and old fashioned. The room wasnt as clean as it could have been. The bathroom was very questionable! I was travelling in the wet season and one day there was a particularly bad storm, the rain water was running down the walls in my room luckily I noticed it in time and managed to move my stuff before it got damaged! I mentioned it to staff in reception and I was told Id be allowed move rooms, but nobody came. I ended up mopping up the water with the towels in my room. Breakfast is included in the price but its not very impressive. Rice, noodles bread and jam. The day I was there the toaster was broken! I dont drink tea but the coffee was vile so Im sure the tea was the same! The restaurant had very limited choices for food...but the locals selling foods from the carts on the lane or in the train station carpark were very good! I definately think this hotel is way too expensive for the quality you receive..

I paid more than 500,000 almost 600,000. But i just feel it was still quite expensive. The room is quite nice, and the air conditioner is very good. The bed is comfy, and the bath room is quite nice.

But, hot water is not operated properly. Often we have to asked the receptionist so they turn on the hot water.

The breakfast is not very special, quite disappointment in fact.

But overall, Serena Hotel is quite nice and very strategic.

we paid 438.000 rupiah for a night (weekend rate) and frankly expected a bit more for that rate...no wireless in the rooms, only in the lobby...the breakfast buffet would be ok for locals as it was mostly rice and noodle dishes, only plain bread and jam for us foreigners...the rooms themselves were ok, with the usual amenities like ac, hot shower, fridge, cable tv....but expect a lot of noise as the hotels is mostly used by indonesian tour groups...there was karaoke in the restaurant downstairs and though i had a room on the 3rd floor, it sounded like the speakers were set up right outside my door :(
best asset is location, right in front of the railway station, so that fitted right into our travel plans

We saw this in the lonely planet and after spending a week in Sumatra in dives with only cold showers we decided to blow our budget for one night and get a decent room in Bandung.

The first room we were shown had a nasty smell and the bathroom looked filthy, we asked for another.

The second was better. It was okay but we expected better.... the room was tiny, the water was far from hot, the fridge didn't work (which we'd paid extra for) and the TV signal was poor. The towels were stained brown and the bed linen had bloodstains on it. Also there was no shower curtain, so after a tepid shower the bathroom floor was flooded.

Lonely planet says the bathrooms are "sparkling" ... I can only assume this was written many years ago as they are now tired and dirty.

Staff were pleasant enough but very young. Breakfast was only Indonesian style, no eggs, cereal etc just noodles and rice. The hot tea they serve was awful tasting.

All that said we had a room on the 3rd floor and a nice comfortable and quiet nights sleep, and good location for train station... but if you're looking for luxury this may disappoint.
