It is one among very few old hotels in Surabaya that is still survive against all odds and still have lots of loyal guests. I can see the clear reason of it. In opposite of those swarming numbers of new budget hotel with minimalist style, this hotel is still maintaining it's spacious and relatively well furnished room. It's perfectly suitable... More

The hotel lobby looks rich and beautiful. We had a room on the 6th floor but as soon as you got out of the elevator you could smell the mold! The hallway looked like an abandoned warehouse with no pictures or plants. The room smelled moldy too so we got an "upgrade" to the 10th floor. The smell was better... More

The Garden Palace is an older hotel but it was clean, and the lobby and restaurant were impressive. The Cats Pyjamas bar was fun - try the cocktails! However, the pillows were lumpy and our room on the 10th floor had a dinging noise from the traffic lights.

We've stayed in this hotel for many times during one month. We've travelled all around Indonesia and our home-base was Garden Palace Hotel. Because we've already been here in 2010 we choose this hotel again. We had different rooms, so we've seen a lot of this hotel. All rooms are clean and look proper. The hotel had a renovation during... More
