“CBD area near shooping mall”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

Staying at standard room, minimalist room and facilities. No refridge and coffee maker. If you just need a place to sleep, this hotel may fit with your need. Located in the central business area and near to largest mall Tunjungan Plaza, just 5-8 minutes walk from hotel. Fast check in and out process.

Room Tip: Prefer direct booking to the hotel website, you can get cheaper rate.

Small but very clean rooms, we did not have a window, so some might find claustrophobic. restaurant in basement which served food till 3 am, so good if you arrive late

Good for transit or very short trips

Hotel with really nice location which just stroll to Tunjungan plaza one of the biggest plaza in Surabaya. Hotel with unsophisticated design with minimalist room, just enough for my self but if you have 2 person and with big luggage than won't maneuver your belonging. Free WiFi and simple brekkie on low ground. A lots hawker surround and restaurant just right in the front of the hotel. For people that need to go to airport in early morning just take it easy there are Blue Bird Taxi 24 hrs right in the front of the hotel. Just bear in mind it took approximately 30 - 45 mins to get to the airport from the city center so just gave plenty of time. will stay at this hotel and off course if they have good deals to.

Hahaha, I try to be honest. Many times I stay at Fave Surabaya, the last time which last month by the way, get it's residential slipper. I remember the first time I stay there at 2011, if I want slipper then I have to pay Rp 10.000. Now it's free. The service is good as usual. Not exaggerately good but good enough. Breakfast is also good, still have it's special pizza from Drago. Too bad it's really-really not soundproof. Well, I sleep good anyway. No view from room. Not so spacious but a tp great location.

The price was good and the location convenient, however the rooms were a bit worn. Our room had no window and felt a bit claustrophobic. It was basically clean, but the wallpaper was peeling a bit and there appeared to be mold in the bathroom.

I stay for 1 night. Fave hotel is small budget business hotel with reasonable price. They have small room but clean n comfort. Good air conditioning, comfort bedding, clean bathroom...but poor shower. I call twice for complain about that but no response. Standard breakfast. Great location, just few step from major shopping center. Recommended but
not awesome...
