“Fair for the price”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

The hotel location is the stand out point about Fave Hotel Mex Building. Few steps away from business centers, shopping malls, and eatery. The building itself is a multi entertainment building, with restaurants, bar/clubs, meeting hall and 4 floors hotel.

PROS:
- Affordable rates
- Prime location
- Easy access for public transportation

CONS:
- rooms are very small
- there is no window in the superior rooms
- rooms are not sound proof (very noisy especially at night when the bar is open and even the morning with kids running around in the corridors)
- limited hotel facility

overall it was a fair place to stay if you only wish to do shopping or business in central Surabaya.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the top level, as it's closer to the clubs.

I just came back from Surabaya last night, 2 nights stay at this hotel.
I stayed at this hotel last June 2011, for budget hotel, this hotel is clean, design is cool.....so strategic, close to mall, restaurants, and nightlife entertainment.

Just found out yesterday that Blowfish discotheque above already closed, so is not noisy now.

Breakfast is terrible, not much choices better take room only and you can eat your breakfast in Fu Yuan Resto Level 1.

Recommended for short vist, business or leisure.

The hotel room was fairly clean, although the size of the room is quite small. Being in a strategic location, close to the Tunjungan Plaza Mall. In this area easy to find food vendors and restaurants. Like the reviews of other visitors, I chose the lower floor, so the music from the pub is not heard from the room. Given the fairly small room, better not carry that much stuff when staying at this hotel. The hotel also has a friendly staff. The beds and bathrooms kept clean.

At this time I have no complain for this hotel. room and staffs are good. but guests in another rooms - i think they are in a group - are noisy. I don't like the breakfast menu.

Room Tip: avoid 6th floor, because this floor is too noisy at night. you can hear the sound from the pub at 7t...
