don't be fooled with the cover. and it is true with Metro Hotel Semarang. even though the hotel itself was not a superb class or in regional chain but surprisingly they maintained a very good services. room was large and it did not cost me more than $50 for a night. it is located somewhere a bit isolated but i don't think its that far to downtown consider Semarang is not a big city so you can just hail a cab or rent a car. one thing i like about this hotel is that their breakfast selection is still retaining Indonesian food. good for those who are in a budget.
