Best Western has opened its first hotel in the city of Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia.

The newly-built Best Western Star Hotel is located in the centre of Semarang's business district, within each reach of government offices and corporate offices.

 At 28 floors in height, the hotel has become a gleaming new landmark on Semarang skyline, and offers a range of rooms and facilities catering to the increasing number of visitors to this up-and-coming business hub.

The hotel's 258 rooms and suites feature wall-mounted HD LCD televisions, Blu-Ray DVD players and MP3 alarm clock radios, while some rooms also come with microwaves and mini fridges.

 Rooms offer views of either the city or the Java Sea, and as with all Best Western hotels, Wi-Fi is complimentary in all guest rooms.

Best Western Star Hotel will also become a new entertainment hub in the city, with the rooftop sky pool bar offering a chilled-out venue for evening cocktails and snacks.

For a more formal dining experience, the second floor Prima Restaurant serves local and international cuisine.

The hotel also offers extensive conference and banqueting space, with nine separate meeting rooms covering more than 620m². The largest - the Catleya Ballroom - can hold 180 guests.

“As we enter 2013, Indonesia will become a key part of our Asian expansion strategy,” said Glenn de Souza, Best Western International’s Vice President International Operations – Asia & the Middle East. “This year we plan to add at least 12 new hotels to our Indonesian collection, encompassing many of the country's fast-growing cities. Semarang, with its expanding population of more than a million people and increasing importance as a region business hub, is one of these cities. We are delighted to welcome Best Western Star Hotel to the Best Western family.”

Best Western plans to more than quadruple its portfolio in Indonesia over the next three years.
