Hotel Review - Quest Hotel, Semarang

This'll be just a short update while I recuperate my brain to be more high functioning for the remaining few entries on my Semarang trip which was like two months back. My procrastination skill is improving.

So, after the enriching experience in Borobudur, it's time to explore the city of Semarang. We booked our 2 nights stay at Quest Hotel at Jalan Plampitan and with the 3-star status, the money we paid for were simply outrageously cheap. There's no way to find such stature at such low rate back in Malaysia, even in a sleepy city like my hometown, Ipoh.

The room we were given was comfortable and cozy, with view of the miniscule swimming pool. The balcony was locked but can be opened upon request. It's spacious, with flat screen TV jam packed with 100+ channels. If you have nothing much to do at night, a restive outing in the room is highly recommended.

Spacious and cozy

Would I recommend this hotel for those who are planning to go to Semarang? Absolutely. About 15 minutes walk to Paragon (biggest shopping complex in the city which we frequented regularly during our stays) and another 15 minutes walk to Simpang Lima (the place to be for eating at night, apparently), you cannot ask for more. If historic buildings are more of your cup of tea, just about 10 minutes away in another direction and you will be at the heart of Kota Lama.

We chose Quest Hotel as our base for the remaining days and our choice seems like a valid one. Only RM 104.50 per night (I made my booking through Air Asia Go website), you can only find such a deal in Indonesia. For more information, just look up its official website here.
