Bandung Getaway: BEEHIVE HOTEL

This is a long overdue post!

Can’t believe that i got so many things to do lately and got this baby blog abandoned. I thought i would be faithful. haha.. Well, actually i thank God that i’m busy tho! since this is what i have been praying for since i got back to Jakarta. I have to be honest that being a full time freelancer is not an easy thing for me. Apparently managing my own time is not as easy as i thought. I sometimes got swayed with the laziness, that i can just stay put in my room doing nothing, but sometimes i can be super occupied with things and don’t even have time to pray. Well, guess this is the time for me to learn how to manage my time well, since we can’t turned back the time, can we?

Anyway, enough with my ‘curhat’ session. haha.

This time, i want to bring you to one well conceptualised boutique hotel in Bandung named BEEHIVE. This hotel is not a new place,  i am very sure some of you have known this hotel, but i just got the chance to visit this place many weeks ago.

The very first reason why we chose this hotel is because the uniqueness of their ‘attic room’, a very instagramable spot for people who loves to take pictures like me. HAHA. *Gonna show that later below. But other than that particular room, BEEHIVE does have a very homey feeling. From its entrance to its room, it feels like you are entering a huge house and not a hotel.

BEEHIVE has a scandinavian concept of interior with a different touch of home-design in each floor. And talking about each floor, this place does NOT have any elevator. So, i would suggest you not to bring huge luggage, since you have to carry it up your own, more over if you want to book the attic style room, which is located at the highest floor (5th floor). Well, i am very sure they have porter service too, just that we did not ask, since we did not bring a lot stuffs that time.

I personally like this hotel. It is located at the heart of Bandung, which is easy to find, has a large parking space, easy to go to the latest cafe in town, lovely design and comfortable room, and not-so-expensive hotel price for youngsters like us. They have their own cafe too, which im not too sure if it’s good, cause we only tried their breakfast menu that was just okay (for me). But i guess, the food there is not bad, since we saw a lot of office people coming over for lunch.

Okay, i guess it is enough for me to talk, let’s just see the nice pictures! ❤

Bandung Instagramable Cafe

Nowadays, eating experience is much more than just having a nice food or drink. We crave for a nicer way they plate our food, a more comfortable ambiance, a one of a kind concept, exotic food, and of course an instagramable spot. I guess looking for a nice cafe/restaurant has become our lifestyle, without us realizing it.

If you’re a cafe addict, Bandung is a good place for you to go for cafe-hopping. Seems like they have a nice, well-concept cafe in every corner of Bandung. and the good news is, Bandung has much friendlier price than Jakarta! You can expect a Rp 25,000 – Rp 30,000 (SGD 2-3) for a good cup of coffee, and Rp 50,000 – Rp 70,000 (SGD 5-7) for a proper meal in a decent cafe. Whereas in Jakarta, you have to spend at least Rp 40,000 (SGD 4) for a cup of coffee.

Since Bandung have a lot of nice cafe, and we did not have much time. Me and my friends just randomly chose whatever nice cafe that’s nearby. haha.. So, these are our picks of Bandung Instagramable Cafe! Enjoy ❤

 

1. One-Eighty Coffee 

This is definitely one of a kind hang-out place.  They offer you a nice indoor seats with wooden minimalistic ambiance and POOL area with a lot of greeneries for their outdoor setting! Yes, you read it right, when you may normally drink by the pool, at One-Eighty cafe you can have your meal-time IN the POOL, and dip your feet if you want too.

Since we already had our brunch, me and my friends just had some drinks over there, and enjoy the nice ambiance that they offer. A lot of young-moms brought their kids to play in ‘calf-high’ pool as well, which means, don’t forget to bring extra clothes if you’re bringing your kids.

2. Ambrogio Patisserie 

Being in one group with Primarasa, the famous bakery in Bandung makes this cafe one step ahead in terms of their patisserie. You can find fancy cakes and patisserie in slightly cheaper price, and of course a taste that is undoubtedly nice.

I am not really familiar with Bandung, but i guess this place is close with some offices. cause this cafe is full with working adults when i was there. But if it’s not, i can see why they are willing to travel all the way here too. Ambrogio has a very decent asian – fusion food, with a very reasonable price. Again, i would say, you wont have these kind of meal below Rp60,000 per person in Jakarta, unless you opt for steak or salmon.

Love their simplicity with industrial feel design, and lush greeneries around! You can explore to the second floor if you want to, there’s a cute cactus corner for your ootd photo session.

3. La Costilla 

A nice small cafe with a lot of mexican touch and a little bit of spanish feeling. Guess this is one of the ‘IT’ cafe in Bandung, since i have been seeing a lot of these place in my feeds by some of Jakarta based Influencers. haha.

Heard that the head chef of this cafe is from the famous pork-ribs restaurant, Tony Roma’s, so you can expect a good ribs from this place. But too bad, i had no appetite for ribs at that moment, and ordered a tenderloin steak instead, which has a so-so taste for me. But my other friends said that the have a good pasta though.

But undeniably, they have a few nice instagramable spots. and there’s this yellow popping colour door that reminds me a lot of ‘Coco’ the movie and makes me want to sing ‘Remember me’.
