Nestled in the heart of the city, Crowne Plaza Bandung is less than 30 minutes from Husein Sastranegara International Airport and accessible by major railway lines and the Pasteur Toll Gate, perfect for business travellers who want to minimise transit time and easily commute to and from meetings in the main commercial and business districts.

The Crowne Plaza Bandung features state-of-the-art meeting facilities including an 800-sqm ballroom, which can host up to 1,000 guests. There are 12 multipurpose meeting rooms for a variety of social and corporate events, and a dedicated Crowne Plaza meetings team to ensure all events run smoothly. The hotel also provides complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi access for guests to stay connected and an Executive Club Lounge – one of the largest of its kind in Bandung – offering guests seamless personalised service along with a panoramic view of the city.


Radisson Medan will be the fifth Carlson Rezidor hotel scheduled to open in Indonesia after Radisson Blu Bali Uluwatu, Radisson Golf & Convention Center Batam, Park Inn by Radisson Lampung and Radisson Jakarta Cengkareng.
