This is an old hotel located in the main street of Surabaya, it is near Tunjungan Plaza and food centre etc, but since it is from the 80s, the elevator, the interior and overall building is old and spooky. But, the staff was extremely friendly though.

Although it looks a little outdated the hotel is perfect. The rooms are upgraded and have really good beds. The flatscreen tv has HBO. The outside pool is on the second floor and very large. The staff is professional. When eating breakfast, be on the look out for the smoking or non-smoking section. Smoking means heavy smoking in this hotel..

Not a bad stay at all but will likely try somewhere else next time. Rooms are adequate and clean, a bit dated. Staff were friendly and helpful. We particularly liked the deep pool, although it is in need of refurbishment. Biggest negative for us was the smoking in the restaurant. As for the food: the breakfast spread was good but...

Here we can taste one of the best exquisite Indonesian cuisine. All of the staff are so friendly and will serve you well. Almost all of them worked here for around 15-20 years. Not only Indonesian Cuisine but they also serve chinese food and european food, but unfortunately they're not as good as the Indonesian. I can assure you many...
