The Hotel That Truely Knows How to Take Care of Its Customers”

Since the first moment I stepped into this hotel till the moment I left, I feel honored and blessed to get to know this hotel via Agoda. The room rate is very competitive to start with. Yet, its Services, Facilities, Staffs, Cleanliness and Location are much better than other 5 stars hotels. Why? This hotel management, from the parking attendant to the reception staffs are so friendly and resourceful that make our stay like at our own home. Their hospitality is no match yet in Surabaya to say the least. Their services are very prompt. Their Facilities are well maintained. Their Cleanliness is too good to be true. Lastly their Location is easily accessible. By all means, this will become one of my favorite hotels in town. Once again, thanks for your hospitality Elmi Hotel.

Cozy place to stay, nice staff, and located in the center of Surabaya. Good value for money, one of the best breakfast service and food in Surabaya, although not self service because of covid. They have many option of ala carte menu (Still miss the self service menu tho). Swimming pool closed off because of renovation. Overall good service and experience. Will stay here again next time.

Pelayanan bagus, fasilitas bagus, breakfast enak dan harga terjangkau.”

Kebetulan bisa early check in, karena membawa anak kecil jadi bisa istirahat terlebih dulu sebelum jalan-jalan di Surabaya. Proses check in cepat, proses check outnya jauh lebih cepat. Semua petugas hotel sangat ramah. Harga jauh lebih masuk akal dibanding dengan hotel laiinya dengan fasilitas yang sama. Rasa makanan breakfastnya tergolong enak, mungkin perlu ditambah jenis menunya. Bangunan gedung bagian luar sudah saatnya diperbaruhi.

Excellent”

The location is within a 10 min walk of the big malls in Surabaya center. The staff works very hard to help accommodate the guests. The rooms are OK and reasonably clean. Be sure to ask for nonsmoking, if you are not a smoker. The water is a bit weak on the upper floors in the morning when many people are showering. The toilet seats are a bit high for comfort, but good for tall people with weak knees. Sunday mornings are a bit hit and miss as to whether the city will close half the road in front for an event or car-free day and the staff does not seem to know the day before. However, they find ways to get around the problem, such as the bell boy apologetically lugging a heavy suitcase across the road and cutting off traffic for the guests.
