Stayed here for business trip in Surabaya. I trust one of my staff to book the hotel, and he did made a mistake. This is by far the one of the "not recommended" kind a hotel. Old furniture, old building, bad bed, smelly bathroom, unhelpful staff, old elevator, clumsy breakfast. You named it they all have it, by far this... More

Located in down town of Surabaya. The room spacious for a 3 star hotel. The bed is clean and good enough for me to sleep well. The room acoustic is not too good because there's a water pipe on the ceiling and make sound everytime the water flow. The price is reasonable for the quality. Summary : good for B&B.

I recommend you to stay in the Lobby. The furniture and decor was nice, and looked very expensive. But once you go to your room, it all goes downhill from there. The room itself is big, but with some pretty old stuff. The food was ok, though nothing special. It's located in a more peaceful part of town.

Once and will never come back. I was staying for one night cause the hotel I used to stay was full at that moment. Checked in as a walk in guest in the middle of night, greeted unpleasantly by the night shift reception. Price wasnt too bad for a walk in charge. Walking through the lobby which designed like a...

Decent hotel for your stay, nice room with some old furnishing for me. The food is not quite good that match my liking. The location itself is great, near city centre, if you need some quiet cheap hotel around city centre you could try this out, but you could find not far away are better.

I stayed there for a night only and I put it as one night hotel only. I wont go back. Service is good, but everything was just oldskull. Shower room was too small for a quite large room. The bed sheet was smelly and it only has 2 uncomfortable pillows for a king sized bed. Not recommend to stay in... More

Even though the building is quite new but when you enter the room, it looks old fashion. My friend and I stayed in January, in a room which located in the corner. The style was not catchy. I could not feel the ambience that I stayed in the hotel. Yet, my room faced to the zoo. I could see the... More
