“Brand New Nice Small Hotel”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

This is my first stay at HI Express Simpang Lima. The hotel is very new, only 1 month old. Very clean and comfortable bed and pillows.
Location is very close (5 mins walking distance) to Simpang Lima for ample food options.
Free internet with decent speed and free breakfast (normal breakfast to boost up your day)
Gym Room is small and serve it needs as an Express hotel. The hotel doesn't have any swimming pool and spa. Cable TV is quite limited (do not have AXN!)
I will stay there again if they maintain their high level of cleanliness and customer service.

ps. Ask for room facing Simpang Lima. Some taxi driver still not aware of this hotel (as it is fairly new). Just tell them it is opposite from Horison Simpang Lima

Room Tip: Ask for room facing Simpang Lima

Very good location. It is centrally located in downtown of Semarang. It is within walking distance to malls, market, restaurants and shops.

Rooms and lobby are clean and nicely decorated. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast choice is limited but good.
