Reviewed 29 July 2013

The hotel design is nice. Thats all thats positive about this hotel. This hotel is extremely dirty! At arrival the sheets of the bed are dirty. Not cleaned after last guest. They don't answer the phone when you call reception. Had to ring 3 times. after diner at the hotel I became sick. The breakfast, no coffee, the dishes are dirty. The food looks not fresh. The tea was not hot. I had too go outside the hotel for breakfast. Terrible experience!

We spent 2 nights at this hotel on February 2013.
The room was perfect, clean, and there are bathtub and shower altogether.
The staff are all nice and helpful.
The breakfast buffet was nice with varyous menu and new choices for new day.
The pool was great and there are 2, one for adult and the other for children.
We also use shuttle car freely from the hotel to Tunjungan Plaza on Sunday.
The conclusion is this hotel is recommended, and I would like to stay at here again.

Room Tip: try to choose the room not too far from lobby and swimming pool.

I had visited Equator hotel in 2008 and had a very nice stay for 2 days. On my next trip to Surabaya I decided to stay there again, but it was disappointing. It was amazing how much the hotel had been run down for the last 3 years.
The rooms were not clean, we had to change the room twice. The breakfast was ok, but no European food. The restaurant was OK, and the local food was ok and cheap. But I definitely will not go back.

Terrible place to stay.. I was there on 18th April, AC was not working in room, made a complaint finally the office boy came after 2 hours and did something saying it's fixed but no luck with it.

They close their entrance door with chains by 10'o clock @ night and you have to wake up the office boy if you need any assistance after ten. Room condition and Toilet is really poor.. I will never go there again..

Room Tip: Avoid this place..

(+) Nice environment, nice staff, nice service, quiet room. Some people will love the ethnic style of interior.

(-) Unfortunately, my room was not clean enough. I found the dead frog in the corner of the bathroom! Only 2 golf car available for transporting from room to the lobby (it can be so frustating when you in a hurry).

Checking into my 'room' was a very pleasant surprise - we were shuttled to our quarters by a small motorised vehicle. Each unit actually consists of an individual chalet with two levels - as one enters, there is a small narrow sitting area. Going up the stairs, I was surprised to see a huge bedroom - furnished like it is with many Asian hotels - in dark wood. I called for room service - food was excellent. In-room massage and spa facilities are also available at an additional price. There was also a complimentary shuttle service to a nearby shopping mall.
