business hotel Aug 20, 2011
Fave Hotels is from the Aston group. It is you can say the minimalist version of the Aston, which is good for the short stay business trip like for a night.

The hotel in Surabaya is new so it is still very clean. It is located in an existing building which has other businesses running, like restaurants/cafes, a famous night club and also offices, so to me it is not very private, you can even get in to the hotel's rooms floor without a key card.

The surrounding is pretty busy, in the city center, near the famous mall Tunjungan Plaza also the book store Gramedia. Also office and government buildings.

I like the room's design which is very modern, but as I said minimalist, the room is not very big but it is okay, with wooden floor which I also like. The bathroom is surprisingly pretty big with glass window separating the bedroom, so if you are with friend do not forget to turn down the curtain,lol. The room has free wifi and also the safe deposit box.

I did not try their breakfast but my friends said it was okay, just basic. I tried their room service, Nasi Goreng, it was okay.

Overall, the hotel is good, recommended for a short stay unless you like simple hotels (I get bored with plain breakfast and simple room, lol). My only concern is being shared with other business in a building, they should have had key card in the lift to enter the floor for the rooms.

The rate is okay, very reasonable, USD 40 per night. And you can buy the amenities instead of stealing it, lol.
