    I love this hotel, but pool needs to be better.”

    The restaurant menu has excellent variety and is very good value for money. This hotel has some very nice surroundings. The rooms are spacious and comfortable.

    This was our 5th stay at this hotel in the last two years and I can't say we have ever been disappointed. No wonder we keep returning. My personal favourite is the selection of their very cheap restaurant menu. Far more affordable than any other hotel I've been to in Surabaya. Their Superior Suite is very comfortable. Nice look out into the garden, and very spacious. One issue we had with the bathroom was the lack of a bathtub, which was disappointing. The breakfast selection is reasonable, although it can get a little boring if you stay here for a while. Our main problem with this hotel is its small and very old swimming pool. They really need to renovate and improve their pool area and build it away from the restaurant. We will continue returning to this hotel if they provide the same wonderful service and at a great price! Thank you Equator Hotel!

    Great hotel. Will definitely come again! ”

    Excellent grounds (lots of flowers), good breakfast, spacious rooms.

    i was pleasantly surprised and delighted by this hotel. it’s incredible value for money even though it has need of some improvement. the highlights of our three-night stay were the beautiful lush grounds of the hotel with magnificent flowers in bloom, the spacious and clean rooms, the delicious and varied breakfast menu, and it’s quiet atmosphere with mostly friendly staff. we were also surprised at how cheap the restaurant food was, much cheaper than other hotels we’ve been to in surabaya. some of its cons were: old air conditioners which weren’t able to fully cool the room, a small swimming pool too close to the restaurant, large groups ‘invading’ the restaurant and smoking, and an ‘uninteresting’ restaurant which needs a makeover. but we barely noticed these minor issues, and will be looking forward to our next stay! thank you equator hotel.

    the equator is in a busy part of surabaya, but is set back from the busy streets. the hotel and bungalows are set in a large garden environment. the deluxe suite i stayed in was very spacious, but the rooms were in need of decoration and renovation. the furnishings were a little tired looking.

    I used this hotel twice during my visit to Indonesia and would recommend it as a great value for money - the rooms are a little tired but for the price so what! The food from breakfast to evening meal is good & excellent value for money -if I return to the country I will return to this hotel! The pool attendant couldn't do enough for me in order to get the pool cleaned so I could swim before leaving!!

But if you want to spend your time for shopping and nightlife, its better not to choose this hotel. Hotel situation has a great ambience, food is great, service is excelent.

    The hotel's breakfast is always enjoyable, the staff was helpful, and the location is great.

    The deluxe suite is definitely large and great for its size. However, the rooms are definitely a little bit dated. I have stayed in the twin rooms which are newer and the furnishings are definitely newer. Regardless, the small increase ion price gets you a much larger room and living space. The AC in the newer rooms can be a little weak at times if you have a lot of guests staying over. The breakfast is definitely solid. You can also just walk over to Ciputra world, Surabaya's nicest mall.
