Another addition to Salatiga's accommodation facilities. Since August 2008 the Dutch-Indonesian couple Sjaak and Wisthi run a Bed and Breakfast at their home on Pemandangan street. Pemandangan means "view", and indeed from the house located on a hill one has a fine view of Merbabu mountain.
If you want a homely atmosphere, personal care, and advice and assistance on excursions, Casa Blanca may be just right for you.

The B&B can accommodate six, there are two rooms with two single beds, and one with a double bed.
Breakfast, Indonesian or European, is included in the price of EUR 12,50 per person per night, minimum stay 2 nights. The fee of Rp 50,000 p.p. for compulsory reporting to the police is not included.

Pickup service from Semarang, Solo or Yogyakarta can be arranged at extra cost.
For more particulars, see the website in Dutch (translate by Google).

Unique Qualities: The B&B is located on a hill in a quiet neighbourhood far from noisy traffic. Relax in the gazebo (photo) or in the jacusi.

Directions:
From the roundabout at Jalan Sudirman, follow Jalan Diponegoro about 1,5 km in the direction of Semarang. Find the signboard "B&B Casa Blanca" pointing to the right into Jalan Ki Penjawi. Follow this street past Ananda hospital, a police station and a cemetery. Take the second street right counting from the cemetery, and after 300 m you arrive.
