The location is near from local food of semarang (bandeng fish), Simpang Lima, Lawang sewu, tugu muda. The room have android TV, at first a little difficult to use. There is many variance of breakfast and taste good at resto in 2nd floor. They have a swimming pool in 3rd floor.

Ms. ir3na_s,

Thank you for your kind review. Our Android TV's controller (remote) might need a bit of getting used to prior to using it fluently, therefore, we provide a set of wireless keyboard and mouse upon request (*subject to availability) for guest who prefers using a keyboard and mouse.

Thank you for staying at Pandanaran Hotel Semarang.

I stayed 3 nights in this wonderful place.
As world cyclist is it nice to stay somewhere that feels like your own home.
The people of the Pandaran hotel are very friendly and helpful.
The rooms are spacious and clean, a good bed, a good shower, high speed internet and a fabulous breakfast make you feel at home.
The location of the hotel is also good.
You get value for money.

The location is the best, exactly in the center of tourism attraction. I'm satisfied with the hotel.

My concern is just that the price should be cheaper around IDR 50.000 - IDR 100.000 to fit the room's quality level. And it would be great if the receptionist was proactive to offer the attractions, foods, and things-to-do in Semarang.

Dear Mr. Winnuayi,

Thank you very much for your kind review of our property.

We hereby inform that we apply a floating - BAR (Best Available Rate) which means that our rates fluctuates dynamically depending on seasons and your lead days. If you book quite a while in advance (long lead days) you'd most likely get our lowest rate. On the contrary, if you book your stay in the last moments before your trip (short lead days / last minute booking) then you'd probably get our highest rate. In your case however, noting that you've checked in sometime in June, I assumed that you'd got our highest rate as this year's June is one of our peak seasons.

We sincerely apologize for not being able to properly explain to you the attractions, foods, and things to do in Semarang. We will train and re - train our staff to provide the best information and service for our guests.

Thank you for staying at Pandanaran Hotel Semarang & we are waiting for your coming presence.

a nice hotel to stay in. it is in a very good location, close to Simpang Lima where you can get to have a lot of the local foods. Besides, it is also not very far away to Paragon (shopping mall) and also Pecinan (Chinatown). I heard the Chinatown will have many stalls during weekend, and you can get a lot of local foods there.

Facility wise, it is not at the level of fantastic. However, it is very good for the amount that we paid. so, i am satisfied.

Furthermore, they also offered to help fetching us from the train station. So, good job!

Dear Mr Andreas C,

Thank for your kind comment. It is true that there are many local food stalls around Simpang Lima. It is also true, that during the weekend, there are many stalls in the Chinatown area where you can get a lot of accessories, clothes, and of course food. It is usually called Semawis Market, and it only opens at nights during weekends. We are striving to improve our facilities, so we would love to hear more of what you think we should provide in our facilities.
We do provide a free pick up service for our guests. Therefore, adequate information from our guests are needed. Thank you for staying at Pandanaran Hotel Semarang & we are waiting for your coming presence.

We got the room in this hotel at a fairly reasonable price thanks to Agoda deals. The hotel proved to be better than expected! I'm not sure of its rating as a hotel, but I think it would fall to a 3-star one.

The thing I like about this hotel is the service: free shuttle to the airport and train station, a complimentary slice of cake, very accommodating staff, and cleanliness of the rooms and public spaces --- yes, there is a swimming pool as well on the 3rd floor (not so sure which level really) deck.

Semarang is a pretty lively city, without the hassles found in other big cities in Indonesia. Pandanaran Hotel is nearby the city centre (Tugu Muda square), as well as the Simpang Lima area. If you are a walker, these places can be easily reached by foot.

Pretty much, this place is good compromise for luxury stay through a reasonable budget.

This hotel located between Simpang Lima and Lawang Sewu, tourist destinations in Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia.

The wifi in this hotel is good, reliable from browsing and seeing YouTube videos. There is Android LCT TV in the room. Unfortunately, I cannot operate this devices. It can be used to access email, social network, internet radio and playing games.

Masjid Raya Baiturrahman is quite near from this hotel.

This hotel also provide prayer room in second floor.

Overall it was great. The location, the friendly staff, or any available services. You would get what you should get in 3 stars hotel. The only thing I was consider that the Air Conditioner was not cool enough for me, or anyone who live with the weather like Semarang. It was very hot in Semarang. Maybe you should warn the receptionist before you get into the room.

Room Tip: Make sure at the receptionist the air conditioner working properly
