What a wonderful opportunity to sample the ambiance and gracefulness of a generation ago. The entire hotel is wonderful, the staff helpful, the rooms over looking the central courtyards with private verandas were a treat. Comparable Hotels in Singapore,Thailand , India and America of similar Colonial architecture will cost 5 times as much and still fall short of this iconic... More

The food really good…breakfast had a good selection of international... More

Over one hundred years of being a Surbaya institution and this hotel still provides top service and comfort. It has been lovingly restored without changing its character. There is a wonderful team of friendly staff to assist you, ( even to escort you to your room when you get lost.) Our first meal on the night of a full moon... More

Loved the design! I adore old colonial design. Very classy, the lobby was cozy yet showed its class. Quite pricey, but it worth the grand feeling that you'll get once you enter the entrance. You'll also get the chill when you see the historical painting about this hotel.

Wonderful architecture - tremendous history - kept in good state of repair. Would have liked to see a much more interesting menu for dinner - the offer was too western and the Indonesian dishes were not to a high standard - very hotel fare.

Stayed here many times but this is my first review. Majority of the hotel is early 1900s. The front at the street has been added later. I would guess 1950s. Rooms open onto garden courtyards. There are 3 courtyards. Some rooms have front verandas. Some balconies. Others neither. Rooms still have that early 1900s feel. Air con can be hit... More
