The room and the overall hotel design reminded me of the designs of hotels back in the 90's, which classic and comfortable, some part of the hotel was under renovation. I only stayed there for one night and had good sleep. It was centrally located, close to the famous Tunjungan Plaza Mall.

This is an old hotel located in the main street of Surabaya, it is near Tunjungan Plaza and food centre etc, but since it is from the 80s, the elevator, the interior and overall building is old and spooky. But, the staff was extremely friendly though.

I have stayed 2 nights at Elmi with friends. It was my first time visit the hotel. With low expectations of course since it is an old hotel. Location of hotel is considered center of Surabaya you can go every where easily. As soon as you entered the lobby you feel it was bulit in late 70' or early 80'.... More

Although it looks a little outdated the hotel is perfect. The rooms are upgraded and have really good beds. The flatscreen tv has HBO. The outside pool is on the second floor and very large. The staff is professional. When eating breakfast, be on the look out for the smoking or non-smoking section. Smoking means heavy smoking in this hotel..

I am surprised with this hotel. First come with a very low expectation. The first impression when you get in to the lobby is a very old. The room as well, very old. But it clean for sure. I had a deluxe room, so it slightly bigger than superior room. This hotel had a nice and friendly staff. You can... More

This hotel is old in furniture, but the staff is wonderful. Their hospitality is really above the expectation. And for sure the breakfast is also superb! I can eat Rawon, Soto and other Surabaya/Jawa Timur local dishes in this hotel.. Best in Surabaya for 3 stars hotel...
