I travel to Semarang frequently but usually I have a day return trip. This time I had an opportunity to spend a night in Semarang.
After reading some reviews in Tripadvisor, I decided to give Gumaya Tower Hotel a try. The booking was smooth and easy. I arrived quite late (around 9.30 pm) so there was no line in the check in counter. The check in process itself was very smooth.
I got a room with king size bed on the non smoking floor. The room was large, clean and bright. The LCD flat TV was there, complete with premium TV channels such as HBO, Max, CNN, NG and Discovery (and many many more!)
The bathroom was quite impressive. I like the fact the bathroom has a separate shower area and bathtub area. Something that you can only find in a 5 star hotel.
The bathroom was clean, and again, more importantly did not feel stuffy.
If I really have to find one thing to criticize, it was the shower. The water current was too weak in my opinion. In addition, the water temperature was a bit difficult to adjust. No matter how you adjust it, the water was always hot. (there, I had two areas for improvement!). But those were small stuffs. You won't die because of them.
One more surprise. The room had a FREE wi fi access. I took the speedtest and it showed an impressive 1.8 Mbps!!
The breakfast area was also very large. The hotel tried it best to cater everybody's taste, I noted at least four stations: Western style, Asian style, Japanese style and local flavor style. Not to mention the fruits, juice and pastry stations. On the scale of 5, I give 3.5 for the quality of the food. They were plenty, but not the best. But again, this was fine. I won't complaint about it.
Gumaya is an amazingly a very good hotel. I will surely come back.
