Good location, but basic
Jalan Salatiga-Kopeng, Kopeng T: (081) 7956 1747
The number of cheap hotels in Kopeng is astonishing and this place is just another in a long chain of them except that it's close to the centre of town, easy to find and almost directly in front of where the bus drops you off.
The rooms here have dirty walls and the sheets suffer from cleanliness issues (that is, they're dirty) but the location in the centre of town makes it a better choice than many other cheapies in the area. The most expensive rooms have private squat toilets and hot water bucket shower, but the system for activating the hot water is a pain. The cheaper rooms are simply a bed and a door which may or may not be functional. Come here for a night only and it might just be bearable for some. Any longer and you might need to go up the road to the Catalina and stump up the big money.
