The 'majapahit', in the year 1910 of the famous armenian sarkies -brothers' Oranje hotel' established and today as national monument indonesia listed, is one of the few remaining authentic kolonialhotels asia. The 'raffles' in Singapore, the 'beach'in rangoon or the' eastern & oriental' on the island Penang in the last decades more or less kaputtsaniert, the 'majapahit', in spite of all the modern technical facilities and structural additions its nostalgic charm preserved. Here you can the traditional structure age tropenhotels meet: at the end of the main building spacious courtyards with accurate maintained lawn, long covered porches with revolving ceiling ... fans, the rooms in far broad wings with shaded terraces. The building has approximately 150 rooms and suites, the half of which on the ground floor and on the 1st floor. The entrance area is very elegantly in dutch -colonial style, the lobby puts in the open as charming small palm trees garden fort. The prices move on very favorable level, I paid with a German organizer 130.00 Euro for the single room/ breakfast, given the very special flair quite a bargain. In my opinion to is worthwhile for the 'majapahit' -in the reason the only attraction of the city - even the way/detour in the touristy right unimportant surabaya, for globe-trotters and lovers famous kolonialherbergen should these legendary hostel anyway a must his.

If you walk through a connecting corridor this hotel, finally enter your room, you can feel everywhere flair and glamour of yesteryear. In the rooms, you found of antiquarian furniture and beds to original about 100 years old gilded fixtures. For us it was nice, this time for a night to enjoy. The garden meets this level - a nice tropical park. The swimming pool was also very big, so you don't only swimming, but great for excercise. The staff greet you everywhere really friendly and courteous. We didn't try dinner instead, were in the nearby Plaza, where there is ... a big foodcourt. The breakfast was very extensive including pastries, fruit and so on., this was most however, if the warm Indonesian food eat early.
