Dutch-colonial architecture endures in Bandung, Indonesia, alongside a budding counter-culture teeming with markets.
The new opening from U Hotel Group, U Janevalla mixes modern, glass architecture with lots of green, a balance that reflects the city’s own relationship with its surrounding lush hills and volcanoes.
In the 119 rooms and suites, they’ve ditched the neoclassical outfitting favored by neighbors for an edgy-contemporary feel with stark grays and whites evened out by punchy furniture. The central location makes the hotel a convenient choice for a weekend shopping retreat or as a base for outdoor day trips.
Opening on Mar 15, room rates begin at $84/night..
