Spatial intelligence is one of the eight crucial human bits of intelligence possessed by students in learning. Spatial intelligence can be defined as the ability to understand the visual-spatial world accurately and make changes to that perception. Based on Hass’s theory, there are four spatial intelligence characteristics: imagination, concept, problem-solving, and pattern-seeking. This study aimed to describe how the students’ spatial intelligence in solving geometrical problems. This research used qualitative research with instruments used are test instruments and interview guidelines that three validators have previously validated. The analysis process took place in three stages: reduction, presentation, and conclusion. This study showed errors on each characteristic of spatial intelligence. In the imagining, students had difficulty imagining the capacity of the building without the help of pictures. On characteristic of using the concept of students experiencing errors using the concept of triangles and building flat side spaces. On problem-solving characteristics, students had not been able to translate information and develop existing concepts to solve the geometry problems. On characteristics of pattern seeking, students had difficulty imagining the pattern presented. Future research will expect to focus on the causes of the low spatial ability or research to improve students’ spatial intelligence.
