On our second night in Semarang, we stayed at Ibis Budget Semarang Tendean. Being a budget hotel, we didn't expect too much of this hotel. Especially after our blisful stay at Novotel Semarang on the first night.
When we arrived at Ibis Budget Semarang Tendean, we were amazed by the look of this hotel. There were so many "WOW" factors of this budget hotel: the building was eye catching with its purple color, the lobby was so fresh and bright, everything in Ibis budget Semarang Tendean looks brand new.
The Colorful Lobby of Ibis Budget Semarang Tendean
Walking inside the lobby, we were welcomed by a modern reception desk and a very friendly staff. Check-in was fast, we got our room key. "You will be staying in our standard room with a bunkbed", the staff explained to us.
There's a spacious meeting area at the lobby with colorful and unique chairs and also two computers at the corner, where guests could connect to the internet.
Actually there was a souvenir shop at the lobby area, but it was already closed when we checked-in.
Compact Room With A Bunkbed
We went directly to our room located on the 7th floor. The hallway to our room was really lovely! I didn't even feel that we were inside a budget hotel.
Although the room was small and compact, it was perfect and really value for money. This room is for 3 adults, two person could sleep on the queen bed, and 1 person could sleep on the bunk bed.
For a family like ours, Kiddos#1 slept at the bunkbed, and the three of us slept on the queen bed below. Before going to bed, our Kiddos wathed the cable tv from the bunkbed. It was a special experience for them to stay in a hotel room with a bunkbed.

|Our Kiddos really love the bunkbed.|
We watched over them when they were seating
on the bunkbed.
Beside the bunkbed, we love our beds and pillows! They were so comfortable just like sleeping in the 5 stars hotel! No wonder before going the room, I saw a poster regarding how comfortable the pillow is.
The shower and toilet was separated, and I think the design is very smart. All space inside the room is used very efficiently. And even with the left space provided, we found an ample space to take our Muslim prayer (shalat).
Towels, soap and shampoo were provided in the room, but you have to take your own tootbrush.
Lovely Posters All Over The Hotel
Other things I love from Ibis Budget Semarang is all the posters inside the hotel. Beside the poster of the pillow above, I love the baby poster at the lobby, so cute!

The Central Location of Ibis Budget Semarang Tendean
Ibis Budget Semarang Tendean is located at the central of the city. It is easily accessed from Semarang Tawang Train Station (4KM away) and also Ahmad Yani International Airport (10KM away).
The next morning, we took taxi from Ibis Budget Semarang Tendean to Ahmad Yani International Airport which cost IDR 40,000. Too bad we had to catch our early flight that morning, so we couldn't enjoy the breakfast at Ibis Budget Semarang.
I recommend Ibis Budget Semarang Tendean for a budget family holiday in Semarang. For the price of the room, you will get something beyond expectation.
Book the room at Ibis Budget Semarang Tendean on your next visit to Semarang, you will love this hotel!
