I use to stay in Holiday Inn Express whenever having business trip in Semarang, Central Java.

Room rates for this hotel is very friendly. The building well maintained, good view in a room...and the most important for me at anytime have a business trip is to have a local culinary.

The hotel location perfectly surrounded by many of local delicacies and culinary. You will not be hunger because you will easily found a very good culinaries around SIMPANG LIMA. "Soto Semarang, Nasi Gandul, Tahu Pong" and many more.

I wrote the name of such food in Indonesia language and I wish travellers will curious to find even come and try to those local delicacies around the hotel. Don't worry, the foods it just in a walking distance. Price of such local delicacies...hmmm...very cheap...Taste...don't just thinking...strongly recommend to travellers to come.

Another reasons make me decided to move from previous hotel where I use to stay before were very helpful staffs. They shown their hospitality as a Javanese ( mostly ).

One of the time, I got injury in my back and I couldn't even stick a medical plaster on it...then you all know what was happening? The staffs knew my difficulty and happily help me to put on it...wow...they were very helpful.

So, travellers...there will be no regrets if you all decided come and stay in this hotel...also enjoy the culinaries around...!!!

4 simple things that concern me when staying in a hotel, convenience, cleanliness, good breakfast and reasonable price.. simple as that, you're in a busy schedule grab a coffee and take out the breakfast, you've got a lot of baggage take the stroller down bellow put in your room... go easy on yourself because they don't have a bellboy.

Every person has their own judgments, until now I'm always satisfied in the service, nice friendly staff, breakfast was tasty, fast check in/out, nice glass room with great city view, and a comfort bed. With a simply reasonable price for the class.. It's a nice hotel. try it your self, ask the reception staff for glass room I always stay in 1202, when I enter I love it already.

Room tip: Ask the reception staff for glass room I always stay in 1202, when I enter I love it already.

For a nice price, this hotel will exceeded your expectation! All the staff are great and very helpful. The breakfast felt almost like a five-star hotel, with lots of variety. The room was nice and clean. The interior and decor are modern and chic. Great location, in the centre of the city -Simpang Lima-. No room service though, but don't worry, as you will be in the centre of the city, just outside the hotel there are many great street food or restaurant near simpang lima open 24 hr. Overall, great value!

As a member of IHG, I feel lucky to get a room as I expected. I love clean and bright room and Fajar was very kind to put me on 0802. When I enter I love it already, size was Okey but the most important is very clean and huge glass windows makes my room very bright, sun shines in through in the morning, and I sleep like a baby. Some noise from the vehicles but not a problem. Nice color Tosca cuisine, very comfort bed, pillows and bedsheets is very clean. High speed Internet access in room or lobby lounge. The shower room also very clean and comfortable. Lighting in rooms are perfect. Breakfast is simple but nice, quite lots of variety and all staff are very friendly. I highly recommend this hotel to many kind of travelers. The location is near to anywhere and shopping centers.

the first consideration when i choose a hotel is clean bed and bath room, here is recommended, simple room with suit color. Simple breakfast but tasty. Close to "simpang lima" where the street food take place and it is mean cheaper food compare with mall or cafe. Good facilities including gym station, room for ironing clothes etc. Hotel staf always smile and very helpful. Been here couple of time, whenever i visisted Semarang on duty or holiday always stay in this hotel. For me .... i like it to stay here
