My room (which was a suite room) was dusty, the floor was dirty. I ordered a cup of cappucino but they gave me watered down instant coffee which was VERY SWEET it was almost like water with sugar. The food in general was not good.

After a long drive through ridiculous traffic from Jakarta we arrived in Semarang late evening. We looked around for a hotel close to the downtown area and ended up at this lodge. For the uninitiated, driving on long distance journeys anywhere in Indonesia is not recommended unless you've infinite patience. After about 100km outside the capital Jakarta, the toll roads...

Semesta Heritage Hotel gave different atmosphere compared to those modern - minimalist hotel nowadays. The hotel had spacious room and clean bathroom. The decoration and the furniture weren't new, but we had no complaints. The breakfast menus were quite enjoyable and the staffs were helpful. The hotel is old, but not out of option.

This is a Muslim style budget business hotel. It has large rooms and an impressive lobby where local jambu brews are served. Breakfast is adequate even for a foreign guest. Service is very polite and dedicated. The wifi is free but not always strong. Central business district is very close by as is the airport.

If you are going to stay with children, this hotel will be suitable for you because of its spacious room. Breakfast was okay,... More

For a couple of days discovering downtown Semarang we chose Semesta Hotel, because of its proximity to the Chinese quarter (Pecinan). It was only recently established, a group of muslim entrepeneurs renovated two ancient buildings, which now serve as meeting room and ball room, and had a five storey hotel block built behind them. The meeting room features Chinese ceramic... More
