Worth the money

Location is great
Love the location. near downtown and near mall. and also for people who love to eat, this is the place.

Strategic location but hotel needs refurbishment.

Friendly staff and good food
Eventhough the hotel is old, the Front Office, Food & Beverage and Housekeeping staff are all very friendly offering good services. Encountered 2 different problems while staying at this hotel. Firstly, eventhough room booked was for double occupancy, hotel initially refused to give out 2 keys upon arrival citing security reasons. Complaint was lodged to supervisor but to no avail. Hotel Executive Asst Manager approved 2 keys on the second day. Totally counterproductive...and no apology extended by Exec Asst Manager. Secondly, the hotel contracted taxi that we took to Tunjungan Plaza (next to Sheraton)cheated us on the fare. This particular driver did not switch on the meter, but charged us Rp20,000.00. Approximate fare by meter is less than Rp7,000. He claimed it is a standard rate from hotel to Tunjungan Plaza. Complaint was lodged.

Decent hotel for reasonable price.

good first impression, flexible - willing to help if any problems
upon my yet another late arrival (i seem to arrive everywhere late), i checked in and had hotel staff show me to my room, where he asked me if the noisy/half-broken a/c is unacceptable, which i agreed it is. so we immediately headed to another room (looks like he was already prepared for this) and let me stay there instead (for no additional charge). both rooms seemed a bit old but it was well taken care of. newer room seems to have some tiny bugs in, bed included - after killing some, it seemed fine, and i had no bitemarks on my body the second day, so it'd appear that those weren't bedbugs.

Bit of an odd experience

Very friendly staff. Huge swimming pool
Not an unpleasant stay but hotel is very worn out and in need of a refurbishment. Staff excellent but food was disappointing. Entertainment provided in lobby and at meal times but the "crooner" plus electric organ were a throw back to the 70s and the gamelan group in the lobby were bored and tuneless and spent a lot of the performance texting! They keep live cockerels in cages outside the front door of the hotel. Goodness knows why but all added to a slightly bizarre experience rescued by very willing staff......well almost!
Travel tip: Surabaya is a difficult place to find a good reasonably priced hotel. This is reasonably priced!

Old Memories Hotel

nice location
the room was quite old furniture and not quite clean because the carpet was dusty. the bathroom was good because they had both bathtub and shower as well with cold and hot water. The various of breakfast menu was not much, but it was delicious.
