What does the term 'business hotel' entail? Is it just about fast internet? State of the art meeting rooms? Muted color? Silent room? Zero fun? But this is 2019 and we're at the decade of the play hard party hard. To answer to the ever-increasing demands of this dualistic business travelers, the Crowne Plaza Bandung, part of the InterContinental Hotel Group (IHG), answers with its tagline: “We’re All Business, Mostly”.

This five star hotel offers beautifully designed 270 rooms and beautiful non-smoking suites that offers a sweeping view of Bandung's vibrant downtown scene. Being a business hotel, it means that Crowne Plaza is decked with state of the art MICE facilities and a business center that can cater to a wide range of events. From large scale convention and exhibition, gala dinner, to beautiful wedding reception. The Braga Ballroom can service up to 800 people, while the hotel's smaller meeting rooms are customizable to myriads of configurations. 

One aspect that makes or breaks a business hotel is its location; Crowne Plaza Bandung is strategically located at the heart of Bandung city, which makes it a great start to explore the city. Just a 5 to 10 minutes walk away, you will arrive at Bandung's most iconic streets: Braga Street, Asia Afrika Street, and Merdeka Street that not only offers a historic perspective into the city, but also tons of hangout spots and legendary local eats.

Or, if you don't feel like venturing too much, the hotel will spoil you with facilities such as the infinity pool that overlooks Bandung city view and Tangkuban Perahu in the background. After a relaxing swim, retreat to your room to enjoy the hotel's 24 hour in-room dining or head to the Mosaic All-Day Dining Restaurant that serves a mix of International, Asian and local favorites or the semi-outdoor Mountain View Poolside Bar & Restaurant that offers a variety of dishes and direct access to the recreational facilities in the hotel. For maximum relaxation after a hard day's work, there's also the Uluwatu Bali Spa with a list of massages, reflexology and beauty treatments. And of course, in the age of non-stop connectivity, the hotel's hi-speed WIFI service throughout the premises will not go unnoticed.
