1. Shangri-La Hotel, Surabaya

Website –

Location – Central

Avg. Price – about SGD$150/room/night

Verdict – If you can stretch your budget and want to pamper yourself, we would totally recommend this hotel. This is by far one of the most extravagant hotels and you will feel that you are on a luxurious holiday. The service, room cleanliness, food and facilities are excellent.


2. JW Mariott, Surabaya

Website –

Location – Central

Avg. Price – about SGD$100/room/night

Verdict – This is our best recommendation. The hotel is located in the centre of the city. It has fabulous facilities and is just a 5 minute taxi-ride away from Tunjungan Plaza, the biggest shopping mall in central Surabaya. Furthermore, at a rate of $100, it is definitely value for money compared other developed cities.


3. Hotel Ciputra World Surabaya

 Website –

Location –  Central

Avg. Price – about SGD$100/room/night

Verdict – This is a nice 5* hotel in the newer side of the Surabaya city. It is next to Ciputra World Mall a new shopping mall with good facilities & shopping, carrying upmarket labels such as Prada, Zara etc. Also, it has an infinity pool that gives you a stunning view of Surabaya City.  However, you have to factor in the estimated 1-hour ride to the airport.


4. Hotel Mercure Surabaya

Website –

Location –  Slightly off Central

Avg. Price – about SGD$80/room/night

Verdict – This is a respectable hotel slightly off the city centre. It has clean rooms with fresh bed linen and is comfortable for a night’s stay after a long trip to Bromo. As a plus, the hotel restaurant serves delicious Dim Sum.


5. Swiss Bell-Inn Tunjungan 

Website –

Location –  Central next to Tunjungan Plaza

Avg. Price – about SGD$60/room/night

Verdict – This is a new hotel that is centrally located. Take a short walk to Tunjungan Plaza, which is a large shopping mall in the city centre, for some retail therapy. If you are into cafe hopping, many cafes are within a 5 km radius from this hotel. The service and rooms are moderate, but well worth the money.


6. Yello Hotel Jemusari, Surabaya

Website –

Location –  In the south. Near to Plasa Marina (The electronic store in Surabaya)

Avg. Price – about SGD$35/room/night

Verdict – This is a rather fancy hotel with a budget price and is suitable for those who just want to rest in the hotel before their morning flight. There is not many facilities around except for Plasa Marina, a shopping mall selling electronic goods i.e. handphone, laptops etc. Do not expect much from the surrounding location, though the hotel per se is quite nice. The trip to the airport from here is a quick 15 – 30 minutes.
