Majapahit is one of those hotels which tell a story and one feels like part of it by being there. It has been stage to an episode of Indonesia's fight for independence. The rooms are nicely furnished in distinct Javanese style, the hotel features manicured gardens, fountains, beautiful spots to sit and muse, top Spa and a huge pool.

You jump back in the past....public areas are perfect, rooms fine but not at a level of a 5 stars property however considering what you pay here ( in Europe for the same amount you would get a novotel room on the highway....) it is surely...

They don't make hotels like this anymore. This completely restored gem of a 1910 hotel is a sister hotel to Raffles in Singapore and The Strand in Burma (Myanmar). From the moment we walked in and were greeted at the front desk until I left for the airport we were treated like Colonial Lords. The restaurants were excellent and the... More

One of the hotels that you are experiencing, rather than staying in.One of the few art nouveau facades left as many of its neighbors are slated to be replaced by tall mega buildings. Unfortunately, as some of the art nouveau could compete with Miami Beach. Large rooms, beautiful grounds, and excellent service. Large pool allows swimming laps.

Stayed here on a business trip for almost 2 weeks. Great location, great service, great room. On my departure, the staff hotel prepared a breakfast box since I had to leave before dawn to catch an early flight. A very thoughtful and helpful staff. Highly recommended.

Without a doubt, this is a treasure to behold! Built over a hundred years ago, this hotel is like stepping back in time! The renovations (and the hotel management doesn't like to say renovated) for this heritage site can only be described as fabulous!

To visit Surabaya and not spend at least one night at this extraordinary hotel - would be a huge mistake and loss. It was originally designed and built by the same people who gave birth to the famous Raffles Hotel in Singapore - it has the very same demeanor and spirit. The rooms are spacious, extremely clean and well furnished... More
