6 Instagram-worthy hotels for your next holiday

In addition to its strategic location in the city center, Artotel is also a favorite among editorial magazines and TV shows to hold a shoot.(Artotel/-)

Holidays are arguably the most share-worthy moments for netizens as they Instagram their plane tickets and passport, check in at the hippest locations on Path and make sure their followers stay updated with what they devour from breakfast until dinner.

For those looking to add more gorgeous photos to their social media, we have curated these Instagrammable hotels in Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta and Bali that are just too good not to share.

Summerbird Bed and Brasserie

Only a 10-minute drive to Bandung's popular shopping mall Paris van Java, this BnB quickly became the subject of talk among young people for to its cute, thematic rooms. Room prices are pocket-friendly for youngsters too as they start from Rp 439,000 (US $33) per night, including breakfast for two.

Mix up the room pictures with the well-lit dining area that offers the perfect spot to take  #ootd or #foodgram photos.

Location: Jl. Ksatriaan No. 11 Bandung

Oliver'€™s Hostelry

Situated in the northern part of Bandung overlooking the city lights, this inn looks like a lodge usually found in the US. Up to 18 rooms are available for reservation; each is uniquely designed and named after a popular song like '€œHolocene'€, '€œWonderwall'€ and '€œWhat a Wonderful World.'€

The place also has an outdoor coffee corner, which means ample sunlight, so there is no need to edit the brightness of photos.

Location: Jl. Panumbang Jaya No. 5 Ciumbuleuit, Bandung

Artotel Thamrin

In addition to its strategic location in the city center, Artotel is also a favorite among editorial magazines and TV shows to hold a shoot. The hotel features original artwork by local artists; in fact, all three Artotels are customized and designed individually based on their location -- currently available in Jakarta, Surabaya and Bali -- and the locals' lifestyle.

Those checking in at its Jakarta location, take an elevator up to its rooftop bar, which offers a view of the capital city's picturesque skyscrapers.

Brown Feather

When a hotel'€™s backdrop is Bali's signature lush paddies, the first thing any good netizen would do is take out their smartphones and snap a photo of the view. This two-story boutique hotel, which exudes vintage vibes with its white-painted walls, rustic and vintage furniture using local materials and recycled wood, offers just that.

Despite its very au naturel location, it is only five-10 minutes away from Seminyak'€™s shopping and dining district.

Location: Jl. Batu Belig No. 100 Kerobokan, Bali

Tijili Hotel Seminyak

Stepping inside this spacious boutique hotel is like entering an eclectic-style painting as it is dominated by bright colors and pattern-clashing interiors. The balconies are also colorful, making them noticeable even from a distance.

The lobby alone is worthy of an Instagram post with its dry-stone walls and splashes of color. The natural light that shines through the windows also makes for a pretty image without an added filter.  

Location: Jl. Drupadi 9 Seminyak, Bali

Lokal Hotel

Deliberately not built into a high-rise building, this hotel only has 12 rooms and an 80-seat restaurant. Its one-story and mezzanine rooms have a strong homey vibe.

As the name suggests, it only uses locally made products, including the shredded kawung artworks found on the hotel'€™s walls and floors, and attractively features a mix of minimalistic and traditional design.

Location: Jl. Jembatan Merah No. 104C, Yogyakarta
