“No window.. Cant breath”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

Poor service. From receptionist, waiters, etc. Especially the receptionist. Start from giving the wrong room, slow response, lack of experience, trouble from deposit payment, etc. Real terrible experience..

Business Hotel. New and clean. Decent free WiFi. Thin Walls, and lousy breakfast though. You can have great steaks just opposite the hotel (Bon Cafe). Near to 24Hours Ranch Market. This hotel is gathering point for Blue Bird Taxi, so transport is very convenient. Will be back if we have no other choice for the budget.

The hotel location is the stand out point about Fave Hotel Mex Building. Few steps away from business centers, shopping malls, and eatery. The building itself is a multi entertainment building, with restaurants, bar/clubs, meeting hall and 4 floors hotel.

PROS:
- Affordable rates
- Prime location
- Easy access for public transportation

CONS:
- rooms are very small
- there is no window in the superior rooms
- rooms are not sound proof (very noisy especially at night when the bar is open and even the morning with kids running around in the corridors)
- limited hotel facility

overall it was a fair place to stay if you only wish to do shopping or business in central Surabaya.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the top level, as it's closer to the clubs.

I just came back from Surabaya last night, 2 nights stay at this hotel.
I stayed at this hotel last June 2011, for budget hotel, this hotel is clean, design is cool.....so strategic, close to mall, restaurants, and nightlife entertainment.

Just found out yesterday that Blowfish discotheque above already closed, so is not noisy now.

Breakfast is terrible, not much choices better take room only and you can eat your breakfast in Fu Yuan Resto Level 1.

Recommended for short vist, business or leisure.
