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.

Second Visit As Good As First

Price, Cleanliness, Food
Came back two weeks later because first visit so good. Room on top floor very quiet and spacious and non-smoking.
Restaurant Tip: Hotel restaurant is more than adequate. Good breakfast included with room.

Good Value and Friendly Staff

Room facilities, staff, good breakfast and good 24 hr restaurant
One con: Hotel drivers do not use meters for nearby short rides. Go out to street and flag a real taxi.

Good and reliable place, albeit dated!

Big room, huge swimming pool!
very central location, walking distance to tunjungan plaza (inquire about shortcut)- iconic mall of the city. there is a fantastic pool to swim yours laps - otherwise the place is a little bit soulless. the hotel is mostly frequented by local business people smoking away their kretek cigarettes in the lobby and restaurant.

Lovely hotel with Javanese atmosphere

strategically located, large rooms, coffee shop with life music, make you feel at home in Java
I worked and lived in Surabaya 25 yrs ago and at that time stayed often in Elmi Hotel. The hotel looks the same as 25 yrs ago, but well maintained and renovated. The same as 25 yrs ago, you can have good Indonesian food in the coffee shop while listening to Javanese life music. Combined with the friendly staff, it makes you feel at home in Java. From Elmi hotel you can walk to Tanjungan Plaza, Surabaya Plaza, the Town Hall and many other attractions. The hotel is located in a neighborhood with many beautiful colonial buildings.

Nice hotel, pity about the location and surrounds

Good pool, multi purpose restaurant/coffee shop, nice staff and reasonable food
We stayed at the Elmi Hotel in Surabaya for 3 days, after flying in from Denpassar. The reception staff were great, allowing us to book in very early with no excess cost. The room was quite acceptable, neat, tidy and with, shock/horror, hot sufficient water. The view was nothing to shout about, just overlooking the very large rooftop pool (very clent and spacy). Food and drinks at the coffee shop, restaurant was costly but certainly an oasis within a surrounding desert of entertainment/no bars/no restaurants etc. Entertainment each night was great, with the young female singer making a good fist of "Akky breaky heart" sic. Outside, along the streets of SWurabaya was totally unexciting and explains the lack of tourist information and visits. In fact the only restaurants for food and perhaps a Bintag were to be found in the two Plazas, Surabaya and Toburnan. The visit to the port was a waste of time, it was like Wooloomooloo in Sydney some 30 years ago (Yuk) and the surrounding Chinatown grotty. Surabaya Zoo, as expected, was overfull with overbred animals in enclosures needing attention and with a residual lingering smell. Much has recently been written about Zoo problems and perhaps some much needed money and expertise will improve the areas. In end, keep to the islands or the less hectic areas in Bali
Travel tip: Go with the realization that this area is predominatly Muslim and they limit alcohol and the type of fun, which we take for granted elsewhere. Unlike Bali, no Warungs, no Losmen, No ready alcohol, no excitement and restaurants of any note
