Jakarta, February 18th 2015 – Set to welcome guests as of June 2015, Archipelago International has recently announced plans to open a 13th Hotel NEO in Indonesia. As the first Hotel NEO to open in Bandung, West Java, the new Hotel NEO Dipati Ukur - Bandung is slated to become the city's most comprehensive boutique budget hotel.

Bandung is already a popular weekend destination for residents of Jakarta. The cooler climate of the highland plantation area, the varieties of food, the cheaper fashion shops, golf courses, and the zoo, are some of the big attractions to the city.

To cater to the growing number of twenty-first century tourists, Hotel NEO Dipati Ukur – Bandung will feature 88 funky, stylish and smoke-free rooms with a choice of double or twin beds. Rooms will be outfitted with top of the line beds with high knot count cotton linens for a refreshing night's sleep, cutting edge flat-screen satellite TVs, individual control air-conditioning, mini-bars, safes and en suite bathrooms with large standing showers.

WiFi access will be fast, reliable and of course free and available throughout the entire hotel. Additionally, three well-equipped meeting rooms and an authentic café shop specializing in homemade noodle dishes will make this latest NEO one of Bandung’s most comprehensive boutique budget hotels.

Hotel NEO Dipati Ukur - Bandung will be geared towards guests who favor an active and healthy lifestyle. Since its introduction, Hotel NEO is committed to providing its guests and associates with a 100% smoke-free environment, and is proud to boast one of the most thorough smoke-free hotel policies in the industry.

Hotel NEO Dipati Ukur – Bandung is located on Jalan Dipatiukur close to Dago, one of the iconic areas of Bandung city. The Paris Van Java Shopping Mall is reachable within 30 minutes by car, as is Bandung Airport. The Bandung train is just 20 minutes from the hotel and 30 minutes to the Rumah Mode Factory Outlet.

“Bandung is fast becoming one of Indonesia's most up and coming cities. With a great range of tourists flocking to the area for the food and shopping culture, our contemporary and stylish NEO brand is destined to fit right in, and we look forward to increasing our presence in Bandung further in the future.” Said Mr John Flood, President and CEO of Archipelago International.
