First of all, I have no idea what some of these other reviews are talking about with view, garden, or swimming pool. I booked here because of those keywords in the reviews, but Hotel Candi Baru has none of these things. It is in an area with gorgeous views, but you will need to eat at the hotel across the... More

When I was booking hotels for a mini trip around Central Java I came across the Hotel Candi Baru. It is an old Dutch colonial building perched on a hillside overlooking the coastal city of Semarang and at Rp240,000 a night for a standard room it looked an ideal base from which to head out and explore this famous old...

Candi Baru is a very nice old mansion full of style and atmosphere and a very pleasnt place to stay when on holidays. The rooms are clean and large, the staff is very gentle and helpful, the garden is a blessing. The only low point for this place is its location so far from the centre. No activities around, no...

i have stayed here on an off since 1996. Was there again recently and still love the place and the renovations they did to it. The On On pub is still as vibrant as always with good prices/quality. Also the Black Canyon coffee house in front has free wifi and good affordable food. Since this is originally a Thai chain... More

While we actually stayed at a different hotel in downtown Semarang, word-of-mouth led us to the On On Pub in the back of the Hotel Candi Baru as a local "expat" watering hole during our trip to Semarang. My friends and I were very impressed with the diverse menu, specializing in Western cuisine (anything from nachos to wienerschnitzel), but also... More

This hotel is a real piece of classic Dutch architecture, still appearing solid despite its age. Honestly I didn't spend a single night at this hotel, but one memory that always lingers in my mind is the pub which is located literally just behind the hotel. On On Pub is what it's called, always offers relaxing atmosphere and genuine quality... More

I stayed at the Candi Baru and can endorse how charming it is. It is simple but clean , historic and with the cheapest room ( with breakfast ) just US$ 6. The most expensive I was shown was a huge suite that sleeps four and thats just US$ 35 for the whole room. This includes a very simple breakfast... More

The hotel is located in Semarang's hillside area. Although it does not have all the luxurious services you'll find in most hotels nowadays, Hotel Candi Baru (was Bellevue Hotel) offers romanticism of the Dutch Collonial era. The art deco facade is still preserved as well as the furniture and the interiors. The room rates are very friendly for backpackers
