Staying at standard room, minimalist room and facilities. No refridge and coffee maker. If you just need a place to sleep, this hotel may fit with your need. Located in the central business area and near to largest mall Tunjungan Plaza, just 5-8 minutes walk from hotel. Fast check in and out process.

The price was good and the location convenient, however the rooms were a bit worn. Our room had no window and felt a bit claustrophobic. It was basically clean, but the wallpaper was peeling a bit and there appeared to be mold in the bathroom.

Good air conditioning, comfort bedding, clean bathroom...but poor shower. I call twice for complain about that but no response. Standard breakfast. Great location, just few step from major shopping center. Recommended but not awesome...
