Gedung Sate, Bandung

3.9
Take a moment to appreciate the Indo-European architecture and attractive gardens of Gedung Sate, and snap a photo of two. Designed by Dutch architect J. Gerber, the building fuses neoclassical elements with characteristics of traditional Indonesian design; you'll recognize it by the central pinnacle resembling a skewer. Originally the headquarters of the Dutch East Indies department of Transport, Public Works, and Water Management, the building now serves as the seat of the governor of West Java.

  • It is the main building of the city. Big and old building tells that Bandung is an old city. People said that this is the governor office and they use as a public building.  more »

  • This place does have limited access to get into it. It consists of several buildings ranging from museums, offices and post office. The entrance is only through the back gate of the building. There are many areas for parking. Some parts are under renovation. I can go there just because I have a police event. Some people informed that on certain days visitors can go upstairs to see Tangkubanparahu mountain from Gedung Sate.
  • It is one of historical places in Bandung which you have to visit if you have any chance to get inside it. The access is limited, but we can go inside if there is an event, just like today. I have a chance to visit it because the government celebrates the 72th of the West Java Province celebration and i can walk around the building, but not inside the building, because it is closed. But, still, I enjoy it much.
  • Some coffee festivals called "ngopi saraosna" regularly held in the front yard of this beautiful colonial heritage. There such a linkage between, which coffee was first cultivated and also the building were built by the Dutch East Indies...
  • the topest floor is must visit. from here we know that gedung sate building located exactly straigt with gunung tangkuban perahu. if you wanna go to upper floor visit permit is required.
  • A landmark of West Java, a good spot to learn about history, a great place to take photo

Where to stay in Bandung

Consider staying close to the main train station for simple hotel rooms at affordable prices--and some more expensive brand names--well positioned to explore the surrounding region. In the area surrounding Bandung Indah Plaza, find a cluster of more upscale hotels with comfortable-to-luxury quality rooms, close to the main attractions and key shopping streets. Look closer to the river for quirky boutique-style hotels, and throughout the city for standard guesthouses offering simple rooms at economical rates.
