Trip Planner:   Asia  /  Indonesia  /  Java  /  West Java  /  Bandung  /  Gedung Sate
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.

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.
