An immaculate, modern, friendly hotel. The room was a good size and clean, the bed was comfortable and clean. The aircon was efficient and silent The bathroom was modern and clean with a powerful, hot shower. Nice toiletries. The wifi worked well in our room. We moved rooms as the front rooms are overlooking a street night market and a very noisy mosque. We slept well in the side room.
There was a huge choice at the breakfast buffet, Western and Asian, even chocolate milk and jelly tots!
An easy listening duo, piano and singer perform early evening.
The restaurant food was tasty, a bit more expensive than an outside restaurant but there were no outside restaurants close by. (£6 Salmon, £4 Indonesian curry). It was a good half hour walk to the plaza if you want modern shops and food courts.
The staff were so friendly and attentive, always greeting us by name, they spoke very good English, although their left and right sometimes get muddled – beware if you ask for directions!
The taxis are cheap, the hotel rings them – we ‘Hit Dolly’ the red light district but it was dark and scary and we didn’t get out of the taxi (not like Amsterdam or Bangkok), We had high tea at the Famous 5*Majapahit Hotel, a beautiful building which was taken over in the war as a prison for Dutch woman and children, ask reception for the history pamphlet when you arrive. We took a taxi to the House of Sempoerna, a free musem and cigarette factory, they offer a free bus ride around the hot spots of the city. Ask Santika reception to book it for you. Surayaba is a huge city, the Santika is a good location, as you have to get a taxi to the sights anyway. We would recommend this hotel for your stay in Surabaya.
