In general the hotel was nice. The receptionist handled our check-in very well and quick. The breakfast was tasty and the place is very comfortable, but not big. For rooms facing the main road will be a little noisy with the sound of the vehicle.

It's a smallish property but I consider it chic for the art which litters the lobby. It is neat and well laid out. We enjoyed our one-night stay here. It is modern and everything was in working order. However as with Indonesian hotels, there were no hand or face towels. The bath towels were also not as white as one... More

Artotel is quite close to the heart of Surabaya. Location is quiet and convenient. The rate is undeniably reasonable. 24 hours Coffee shop is available. Rooms are not too small, clean and nice bathroom. There is a pretty significant drawback since I get a room facing the front side of the hotel. The windows should be covered with solar screen...

I picked this hotel based on their review score on Booking.com and as soon as I walked in, I immediately loved it. The lobby also acts as an art gallery. The rooms are very quirky looking. They had an iPod dock that we made full use of. There is a mini mart right next to it, so that made things... More

Very good art hotel. Simple, elegant, handy, nice. Art is everywhere : even the towels are displayed on an "artistic" way! Every detail has been though of. Nice room, nice restaurant, nice service, good wifi connection. Excellent value for money.

Love this hotel, the iconic stairs, the backdrop, the lobby especially. The breakfast don't have much choices, but acceptable since the quality is quite good. the bad experiences only annoying mosquitos when having some beverages at Roca. I can't stand it more than 30 minutes.

Artotel has a very unique place to stay. small cozy room and art everywhere. I even enjoy sitting at the lobby because of its art. Great foods at the restaurant and friendly staff at the front desk makes me feel comfortable staying here..

Read positive review about this hotel and decided to give it a try. The name itself - Artotel has explained the hotel very well, the lobby design showcases their unique art collections and gallery display. No issues with checked-in: fast and efficient. Room design was unique and clean with firm King Koil bedding, 32" Panasonic LCD, Daikin air con and... More
