Here we can taste one of the best exquisite Indonesian cuisine. All of the staff are so friendly and will serve you well. Almost all of them worked here for around 15-20 years. Not only Indonesian Cuisine but they also serve chinese food and european food, but unfortunately they're not as good as the Indonesian. I can assure you many... More

The hotel and the rooms itself are (significantly) dated, but clean and ok. The staff is very friendly and well trained. However, the pool is really disgusting, very dirty with hair and other stuff floating at the surface. After our arrival we pointed the reception to this and asked if the pool could be cleaned, but nothing ever happened during... More

We only stayed here overnight but found it very well appointed. The restaurant is 24 hours so ideal for travellers and the food was good. Breakfast gave a wide selection. The only thing we could see lacking was a personal safety deposit box in the rooms - but safe deposit spots were offered at the front desk. Plenty of places... More

For the value, this hotel is fine. Although the property can use some renovations, things mostly worked ok. The bed quality is good, although the noise level outside can be a nuance if you are looking for a good night of sleep. Location-wise, it's about 20 to 30 minute cab ride to anywhere, which is actually good for Surabaya and... More

I was stayed on this hotel around October 2013, after evacuated patient to Surabaya Hospital. It was a nice hotel, comfortable room, even it is an old hotel. I stayed on 3rd floor, with city view. There is a bathtub on the bathroom, the hot and cold water is well preserved. Soap, towel, lotion, tea, coffee, and hot water are... More
