Reviewed 2 June 2013

The hotel services are the same like another Accor's Ibis hotel. Pros: location, simple and fast check in - check out, friendly staff, room is not too spacious but quiet and clean, comfortable bed, we can find lots of food stalls, cafe and restaurant near the hotel.
Cons: no fitness center, small led TV

was at this hotel for 1 night and my review as follows:

1) Location:
Very central, within walking distance to ciputra mall and matahari. so no complains.

2) Check in & hotel building:
Check is was quite slow. Took around 20 minutes just to check in our 3 rooms. Hotel building is the same like many others ibis, acceptable.

3) Room:
Very typical ibis room. Compact but functioning. Not bad for the price paid. However, the hotel really need to change their pillows. It is not acceptable at all to have flat pillows for an international chain hotel. Im sure pillows wont cost that much.

4) Breakfast
Hmmm, very ordinary. Not very impressive. Hated the smoking area which is situated near to the porridge stall. Management need to do something about this. Not hygienic.

5) Wifi:
No wifi in the room. Hmm, if many other 3 star hotels in Semarang can provide free wifi in rooms, am not sure why ibis could not do so.

Overall, not bad for the price we paid. The only winning point staying here should be its location. Other than that, it is very ordinary in my opinion. Maybe if they provide better pillows, i would have think this is a good hotel to stay in Semarang.

This hotel is in good location with reasonable price if you want to stay near city center compare to another hotel around the city center. The room is clean, with fast services. Just ensure that you get a room with good view.

Well maintained, nicely placed in dowtown Semarang, excellent full breakfast (continental as well as Indonesian). Not noisy however in a busy street. Nice lobby, nice restaurant (for breakfast, we did not try the dinner....) and nice waiting lounge.
Very good prices.

The room was rather small, but comfortable. I was lucky to get a room at the corner and on higher floor, which I think provide more space and nice view of Semarang and simpang lima area. It even has a glass door that open up to some kind of open "balcony". But i didn't use it, since I was staying with 3 years daughter and didn't want her to go to that area.
Ibis is located near Simpang Lima area, which practically is the center of the city, and is perfect as base to explore the city. From here, it's easy to catch a becak or taxi to go almost all tourist attraction.
The longest distance I visited was the Sam Poo Kong, which was about 30 minutes ride in a taxi and cost just about 30,000 IDR.
The only down side was the breakfast, which offers very little selections and rather bland taste. If possible, you can book the room without breakfast. You can easliy find more delicious breakfast around the hotel at cheap price, especially during the weekend.
Overall, it was a good stay and would definitely stay here again.

Located in a very strategic location, the hotel has small rooms, but comfortable and cozy, and the breakfast is okay. Making reservation through www.ibis.com is really worth the time and money. Need shampoo in the bathroom but the staff, arriving after 20 minutes, told us that the hotel only provides soap that serves as shampoo as well. Be careful when you use 'the hotel becak', make sure you ask the price before jump into the seat because he may ask for more than the usual price. Despite the fact that there is no shampoo available, I will surely be back whenever travelling to Semarang.
