Marvella Hotel, Jl. Sinargalih, BDO

We stayed here for 1 night on our recent trip to bandung. The hotel was booked by our hired driver. Originally we plan to stay in Guntur for our day 1, however, due to their long weekend which started on 22-24 April 2011, no room was available as per our request. We arrived at the hotel late and room price was paid during check in. Our deluxe room rate was IDR 310k and that I consider a bargain. They have standard which cost less than IDR 300 per night. Breakfast is serve/deliver to our room and the standard fried rice and tea is quite satisfying. Room service is available 24 hrs. The hotel is located close to Jl. Setiabudi which the famous FO is located, however, public cab (during my stay) was not spotted during my stay (perhaps the hotel may arrange).

At first I thought the hotel name is 'Marsela' so I google around and found no hit for it. The actual name is actually "marvella'. It is a new hotel, they have 2 separate sections, most of the standard are in the new block while deluxe rooms are located facing the yards. There is an open area fronting our deluxe room and cars are allowed to park at the area. This hotel is a champion in term of its pricing and perhaps location, but those who look for more service, space and amenities, this may not be the place. Overall, chances to stay again = moderate, food = fried rice and tea - satisfying, others = ok.


  1. hye there ...i plan to stay at this hotel next month since it is near FO .... do u recall if they have room for family, which can accommodate up to 6 persons?

  2. May I know, which one is better? between this hotel and amaris hotel? Is there a bathroom in the room in this hotel?

  3. Dear anonymous so sorry for the late reply, been buzy with chores.

    Both marvella and amaris got their own strengths (depend on your preferences..), my personal pick would be amaris due to its distance to heritage and cascade, taxis are also clearly visible from the hotel. Should you wish to stay at (rather) quiet location, marvella would be nice. Amaris is located near the gedung satay and toko anak kechil is also nearby (since our main purpose is to shop for our d/ter hehe). Hope that will help.

  4. and both marvella and amaris comes with attached bathroom.
