The Travel Junkie at Sheraton Bandung – Surrounded by mountain scenery yet only minutes from Bandung’s central business district, Sheraton Bandung a resort styled hotel in Bandung offers travel junkies the perfect base while visiting Dago Valley. Best choice for business meeting and kids friendly hotel at the same time. Here’s how my recent stay at the “Tropical sensation in dynamic city of Bandung” went.

Was there any pre-arrival communication by the hotel with myself via email or social media? My stay was organised by a multitude of channels.

Did I try to engage the hotel via social media? Did the hotel interact with me and made me feel welcome/special? I had, and the hotel responded.

Has the hotel tried to gather any personal information (e.g. preferences) prior to my stay? The Sheraton Bandung knows me quite by now and I really did not need anything special.

The wow factor! What was the hotel decor style? I was a bit surprised to find quite a cozy space. It looked very nice.

How quick and efficient was the hotel check-in? We had a fantastic check-in and efficient, it was well humoured too.

Was I addressed by name once reservation has been located? (it is all about the small details, some others are outstanding with this, and I love it, like I do when I board an airplane) Absolutely.

Did I feel genuinely welcomed by the hotel staff? Very much so. Everyone, no exception was brilliant.

Wi-fi – was I told anything about it? Was there a charge? It’s very simple one-off login process and perfect.

Room Experience
First impressions – decor, size and wow factor? Our room was lovely – which with 2 queen beds and near pool. It was excellent.

Welcome amenity? I found some lovely chocolates, and many more, le yum!

The bed? The bed was heavenly and difficult to leave, which is a welcome side effect.

Closet/Wardrobe – proper hangers or those annoying ones where you need a PhD to get them out one by one? No problemo here.

Bathrobes and slippers? Yes, and lovely.

Coffee and Tea? yaaaaaas yaas!

Free bottled water? Yes, of course.

Power sockets in useful places – we have more and more devices and we know where we want them! By the bed, by the working area. Absolutely and by the side of each bed. Perfect.

Bathroom – decor, size and wow factor? The bathroom was excellent.

Bath, shower and taps – I am looking for Duravits and Hansgrohes (or other fab brands) around the world. How fab was the shower? The shower room was fab. Great pressure and a massive shower head.

Towels – yes, please! How many and how soft and lovely? Sheraton towels are usually very good and they did not disappoint.

Toiletries – own brand, super brand, baby ones or proper ones? I love the smell of the shower gel.

Amenity kit? All items were cleverly ‘hidden’ and there.

Hairdryer – is it a human one, or just something stuck to a wall that only makes noise? It was quite powerful.

General thoughts:
How good and reliable was the wi-fi? We had no problems.

Did the hotel interact with me via social media during my stay? Yes, and we had a lot of fun.

Would I recommend it to my best friends? Yes, of course. For business and leisure.

Would I stay again? Without a doubt – the hotel was very tropical, service was excellent, the location was unbeatable and good value.
