I kept thinking when I stayed here a few days ago that my palatial suite was something only the very elite of colonial society could have dreamed of renting. It is probably 1000 ft2 and had gorgeous Italian style tile work, layers of wooden molding, stained glass onto its living room and onto the exterior. Wow! And the ceilings are...

Stayed a few nights here for only 120k per night. The room was in the back behind the actual hotel and behind the pub. There is a fan and two twin beds, breakfast is included. It is however quite noisy and there are a lot of mosquitoes for some reason, but overal it was ok.

First of all, I have no idea what some of these other reviews are talking about with view, garden, or swimming pool. I booked here because of those keywords in the reviews, but Hotel Candi Baru has none of these things. It is in an area with gorgeous views, but you will need to eat at the hotel across the...

When I was booking hotels for a mini trip around Central Java I came across the Hotel Candi Baru. It is an old Dutch colonial building perched on a hillside overlooking the coastal city of Semarang and at Rp240,000 a night for a standard room it looked an ideal base from which to head out and explore this famous old...

Candi Baru is a very nice old mansion full of style and atmosphere and a very pleasnt place to stay when on holidays. The rooms are clean and large, the staff is very gentle and helpful, the garden is a blessing. The only low point for this place is its location so far from the centre. No activities around, no...

i have stayed here on an off since 1996. Was there again recently and still love the place and the renovations they did to it. The On On pub is still as vibrant as always with good prices/quality. Also the Black Canyon coffee house in front has free wifi and good affordable food. Since this is originally a Thai chain...

While we actually stayed at a different hotel in downtown Semarang, word-of-mouth led us to the On On Pub in the back of the Hotel Candi Baru as a local "expat" watering hole during our trip to Semarang. My friends and I were very impressed with the diverse menu, specializing in Western cuisine (anything from nachos to wienerschnitzel), but also...

This hotel is a real piece of classic Dutch architecture, still appearing solid despite its age. Honestly I didn't spend a single night at this hotel, but one memory that always lingers in my mind is the pub which is located literally just behind the hotel. On On Pub is what it's called, always offers relaxing atmosphere and genuine quality...
