Affordable & good location guest house in Bandung Jan 17, 2012
My holidays report :)

Touchdown in Bandung. We checked in to De Riau Motel. We were so excited to go shopping.

The surrounding area is very leafy. The location is the best, we can shop till drop at jalan riau where there are a lot of factory outlets then walk back to De Riau Motel if we are tired.

About the room, it's clean and tidy. There is TV with local & international channel. It's quite comfortable staying here, besides there is also free WIFI. Quite good for a motel / guest house.

The staff is very friendly too.

So, overall, if you are looking for budget hotel, de riau motel is better than okay, it was good!

De Riau Motel by Indoproperty Jul 19, 2011
The De Riau Motel is operated by Indoproperty Real Estate Agency. We were trying to book a hotel in Bandung on our first night but everything was taken and so we opted for this place.

The best thing I can say about the hotel, besides its price, is that it is in a nice neighborhood and not far from the cafes and factory outlets. The staff who runs the motel were also friendly and helpful.

But as for the amenities and the room, it was definitely more like a hostel than a hotel room. First of all, there was no air-conditioning, although that wasn't a major problem because it is usually cool at night time in Bandung.

They don't provide you with any bathroom linens (we had to buy a towel at an outlet store) and the bed wasn't all too comfortable. The television had about 12 channels, which were all local or Indonesian stations. There were two plugins in the room: one for the TV and one for the fan, so we had to unplug them to charge our phones. The room and bathroom is rather small and there isn't anything in the way of decor. It's very plain and simple. The bathroom had a shower and toilet, but no bathroom sink. The room was clean enough, but it did have a stale smell.

The hotel is secure and safe: the front gate is locked at night, and the only way to get in is to ring the bell. The grounds of the motel are well maintained. There are only about a dozen or so rooms and you can also get rooms that share a bath. These are even cheaper than what we paid (20-30USD).

Overall, the price and location make this hotel tolerable. We were tired from a long day, so all of the shortcomings were easily overlooked. I was just happy to have a roof over my head for the night. But if you're not the type who goes for hostels, the De Riau is probably not for you.
