“Slightly Faded Colonial Splendour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2009

We had two one night stays at the Majapahit which does retain something of the atmosphere of an old "colonial" hotel (although it's no Raffles!).Our rooms were around the attractive central courtyard with its fountains.The rooms were large & characterful, if a little worn. The A/C controls were broken in our second room.
The staff were friendly & helpful. They gladly kept one of our cases in store between our stays. If you find yourself in Surabaya I think you will find the Majapahit a good choice but note that an "Executive Room" does not imply access to a lounge or any other special services.
