The hotel bed room is very large and stay at the top floor is amazing because it is located at the center of the city. The hotel also clean and the staff is very friendly and professional. But the menu for the breakfast is not that much, only few of foods.

I love the room, because it was cozy enough and the view from my room is ok (it was Surabaya Zoo) But for the breakfast is very bad, cause there are only few menus. There's no cereal and fresh milk. So bad. Please improve the services.

Damp room, cigarette stank, clogged sink. Even the sheets looked like from previous guest. Air conditioner is rattling because it's old. We stayed here as last minute emergency. Should have done our homework better.

Normally, I would not leave bad reviews no matter how unpleasant my experience would be. But honestly, I should have read the reviews here and think twice before booking this hotel. Having said that, the deal breaker for me is simply as my review title says. "There was a Rat in my room." I woke up in the middle of... More

I wish not to stay here, but to late. Stay in non smoking room with smell of cigarette, breakfast with Rawon with very limited meat inside (it is the only good food available), this hotel is very good place for not to stay. big mistake.

Stayed here for business trip in Surabaya. I trust one of my staff to book the hotel, and he did made a mistake. This is by far the one of the "not recommended" kind a hotel. Old furniture, old building, bad bed, smelly bathroom, unhelpful staff, old elevator, clumsy breakfast. You named it they all have it, by far this... More

Located in down town of Surabaya. The room spacious for a 3 star hotel. The bed is clean and good enough for me to sleep well. The room acoustic is not too good because there's a water pipe on the ceiling and make sound everytime the water flow. The price is reasonable for the quality. Summary : good for B&B.

I recommend you to stay in the Lobby. The furniture and decor was nice, and looked very expensive. But once you go to your room, it all goes downhill from there. The room itself is big, but with some pretty old stuff. The food was ok, though nothing special. It's located in a more peaceful part of town.
