The hotel was good value for money and we upgraded so that we could use the lounge on the 6th floor which was very nice. The room was comfortable and the staff mostly helpful and friendly. We found the reception staff a bit unhelpful as we needed to re-confirm our flight for the next day and when we checked into the hotel just after 3pm we were told the business centre had just closed - strange hours for a business centre when a lot of business people obviously use the hotel and would probably appreciate someone being available in the early evening.
The receptionist reluctantly agreed to help us out after a bit of persuasion. I was shocked to see the number of inappropriately dressed local girls - known as chickens in Jakarta - who were openly using the restuarant to tout for business. Not something I want to witness whilst I am enjoying a quiet meal. Unfortunately this happens quite a lot in Indonesia, but I find it quite hypocritical to see the hotel management tolerating this sort of behaviour in a Muslim country.
Having said that, I would probably use the hotel again if I was in Semarang as it was convenient being less than 10 minutes to the airport and the hotel provide a free shuttle service. Recently stayed in Novotel for a couple of weeks. Overall the hotel is excellent and service attentive and keen. The rooms are clean and very well appointed. The food is very good for the region, and prices are very cheap for Westerners use to European hotel prices. It is ideally located close to shopping malls, and taxi rides are so cheap to get around town.
S2 restaurant complex near to hotel Grand Candi has a wonderful japanese, chinese, and bistro offering excellent food, only 10 mins away by taxi. The nightclub is good fun but beware the hordes of prostitutes that harass guests in there, with what looks like the full support of the hotel management! The Novotel Semarang is only a couple of years old and still feels new. The rooms are stylish with nice polished wood floors and futon -look beds. There is also a good selection of TV programmes, although the TVs themselves are a little old-fashioned.
Guests should not that the north facing rooms may be slightly affected by noise from the building site next door. We were very happy that the staff allowed us to check-in early and this helpful attitude was shown by the staff throughout our stay. We had a problem with a room service order and not only was the problem fixed but we were given it for free.
