“A great place to stay”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

My friend and I stayed in this hotel early this year. We took one of their package deal. What a place! What a deal. The tours were very good indeed. The picnic is unbelievable. The service was excellent. I will definitely come back and stay again.

My colleague and I were astounded by the graciousness of the hotel but even more by that of the staff. This was truly a memorable stay and I would recommend it to any traveler. In fact, we plan to bring our college students next year if at all possible

Room Tip: If you want to enjoy the hotel but travel less expensively ask for a room in the book. Not "fan...

The small City of Blitar is worth a visit anyway, because of it's historical architecture and the nearby temple Penataran and the tomb of Indonesia first president Bung Karno. The Tugu Blitar is the perfect place to dive deeper into this kind of atmosphere. The place is really nice and the staff is very friendly. You will certainly find more luxourious Hotels in Indonesia, but the Tugu offers a unique experience for very reasonable Prices.

Our family really liked this hotel in Blitar. We stayed in a big, comfortable room with decent internet and really enjoyed the outside bathroom and bathtub. Though there is no pool, the boys had great fun playing tag on the grounds. Even though the hotel oozes history and class, it is not expensive and has a variety of rooms and people from different socioeconomic classes staying - mostly Indonesian guests when we were there. The food is good though the restaurant could be made to appear a bit more stylish in keeping with the rest of the hotel.

After staying at the Malang place, this place was smaller but none the less fascinating, with the presidential suite and its memorable decor! Room was comfortable, good service, it was a good place to stay.

I have just returned recently from our trip to Surabaya - Blitar, I was there with my son, my sister and brother in law.

We spend 4 nights at Tugu Sri Lestari and I have to say that our stay there made our trip EXCELLENT.

During our second day there, it was my B.I.L's birthday and I decided to throw him a surprise after breakfast so I approached the hotel reception and made all the necessary arrangement. The day come and I was overwhelmed.

I did not expect that it's going to be a tremendous surprise but it was... It is something that I would rate as 'Exceeding-Excellent' in the customer service world. We were greeted with a personalized, hand written leaf that states 'Good morning to me and my family.' Tell me, how often your get such personalized greeting in the morning when you are on vacation.

We had our breakfast as per normal and subsequently without expecting anything... They brought out a cake and my B.I.L had a great smile carved on his face. At that moment I knew I made him a happy man and his birthday was a blast.

I m happy to see him and my sis happy on that very special day... couldn't thank the staffs enough...

Rooms was cozy... Services was prompt... Staff is friendly and the place itself... spells TENSION-FREE.

I enjoyed waking up in the early morning... breathing the fresh, unpolluted air so fresh that I felt energized.

Ask me if I going back there again... I 'll tell you bet I ll be there again.

I ll never forget my stay there and all the great experience which they have given me.

I ll be back soon. That's for sure.

The Dutch colonial farming house architecture is charming, together with the mini shrine in the Sukarno presidential suite. The staff was friendly and well-trained, and the free afternoon kuih kuih was delicious. However, the toilet flush in my room wasn't working and broke down again after repair. Let's hope they can do a better job next time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hotel Tugu Blitar, unprecedentedly the best hotel and restaurant in Blitar, East Java, is housed in a colonial building that was built in the 1850s, and was previously owned by a distinguished family of Blitar. After the second World War, the hotel was called Hotel Centrum; many years after the name was changed to Hotel Sri Lestari – and later become Tugu - Sri Lestari. Being the oldest hotel in Indonesia, the hotel building appears as a beautiful East Javanese mansion from the Dutch colonial times, with giant white-washed pillars, furniture from the late 19th century and the early 20th century, nostalgic photographs and elegant chandeliers. The building was carefully renovated to its every detail in the beginning of this century, to preserve its artistic, charismatic, and historical characters but blending them with modern luxuries. To discover the real, unspoiled East Java means a visit to the town and surroundings of Blitar. Blitar is where most of the remains of Majapahit Kingdom still stand timeless, including the largest and most beautiful Hindu temple complex in East Java, Candi Penataran. This nostalgic town portrays the untouched, exotic Java, surrounded by some beautiful, unspoilt beaches, tropical landscape, beautiful rice fields and countryside sceneries. It also has a romantic flair of the early days of Indonesia; in fact Blitar is where Soekarno, Indonesia’s first president who proclaimed the independence of this country, was born and buried. ... more   less
