Review Courtyard Mariott Dago
I stayed two nights in deluxe king room with Families, 3 person in each room
Courtyard Mariott Dago might be one of the old hotel in Bandung that have undergo mulitple renovation, but its prestige remain as exclusive 4 star hotel by Mariott Chain. Their facilities and services are top notch.
Prior to our arrival, i have communicated with the hotel marketing staff to make sure that i get the room with large sofa bed. So if you are a group of 3 person, wanting to stay in one room, choose the deluxe king room, because it has sofa bed that can expand twice in size, making it suitable for another large adult, or even two kids. Call the hotel and do special request to make sure that you get such sofa bed, also bear in mind that the hotel don’t provide extra bed in deluxe rooms.
Our room is relatively big, the sofa bed works as day bed as well, overlooking bandung cities through floor to ceiling large window, it was nice that i got a room facing sunset! the king bed is VERY HUGE. definitely fit 2 adult and 1 kid comfortably. There is also a large marble table by the sofa, and with proper sofabed configuration, huge families can sit together to dine on the marble table, i also love the carpeted flooring. feels exclusive.
the TV play local and international channel such HBO, FOX and some kids channel. Wifi works great. Water boiler comes with instant coffe and tea, and some set of glasses. two complimentary mineral waters are replenished daily. There is a fridge without minibars. slippers are provided, There is ironing board as welll, or you can choose to laundry your clothes.
There was problem with our aircon not cooling well and remain at 25 celcius, we have the hotel’s engineer checked, but the problem didn’t get fixed :(, but it was okay, bandung can get chilly at night, and we were out of hotel during the day.
Room service needs to pay more detailed attention toward cleanliness of the flooring, i still spot dust piling below the cupboard, and even spiderweb, but its not regularly visible anw.
HUGE! however the toilet and the floor edge need more scrub to get rid of those water stain. Amenities provided is of okay qualities, love the lemon smell from the shower gel. However, by default they only provide one set of amenities. I need to call the room service to request extra shampoo, toothbrush. Hair Dryer is also provided upon request. The shower booth is very spacious with strong water current coming from the rainshower. Hot water is easy to adjust.
due to covid prevention, Hotel buffet need to follow strict service procedure. Staff will wait on every food stand, and will scoop the dish you select to your plate. There was rice congee, baked beans, sausage, grilled tomatoes, some indonesian dishes, cold drinks such as milk and syrup juices, most of the dishes taste are mediocre. But what i love the most was their pastries. The waffle is crunchy outside, soft inside and very flavourful. It come with maple syrup, chocolate / strawberry syrup, almond flakes and even ice cream scoop! and kudos to the chef pastry to follow the trend and bake korean garlic cheese bread!
again due to covid, swimming pool and gym access are closed for the time being. Gym looks decent with quality equipment. There is also child playroom with books, toys and Playstation.
Dago is Bandung’s trendy center, it has plenty of food options, cafes, restaurants and many more. Bandung is such a small place that going anywhere is easy and fast. Weekend however, can get very crowded and traffic.
Friendly staff! check in and out was a breeze. Standard check in time was 3pm, but they let us in at 1 pm.
Courtyard Mariott is one of the expensive hotels at Bandung, but its services paysoff. will definitely stay here again!
