The Majapahit is an importpart part of Indonesian history so I wanted to stay here when I visited Surabaya. And it was well worth it as it's like being transported back in time to the early 20th century when the Netherlands still ruled over this vast land. Thankfully the rooms have been updated from that time. Good size, comfortable bed,... More

True colonial luxury with a long history. I loved the public areas - garden is stunning and the art display in the lobby is captivating. The service is professional and friendly. The room is decorated truly in age appropriate style and includes an extremely comfortable bed. The only item I would note is that I found the risotto in the... More

We only stayed one night here but I could have stayed for weeks. Palatial grounds, lovely big rooms with character bathroom fittings. Whole place was spacious, clean and comfortable. Staff were all extremely helpful and would do anything for you. A real experience, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

I was only able to stay 1 night in this beautiful hotel but it was truly amazing. The rooms, the gardens & the service were wonderful. We had excellent food for dinner & breakfast. The swimming pool was big & empty & nothing was too much trouble.

This is a beautiful hotel which displays the style and comfort of an old colonial hotel but is totally modern. The rooms were probably the most spacious and comfortable that I have ever been in.

What a wonderful opportunity to sample the ambiance and gracefulness of a generation ago.

You are totally right. This is a unique way to sample a grand hotel at a very democratic price... similar hotels around the world would cost you between 5 to 10 times more... And it is such a lovely property, a must when in Surabaya for business or pleasure... George Hazard / General Manager More
