Een kamer in Metropolis is een goede en betaalbare optie als je in Surabaya verblijft. Ruime, lichte kamer dichtbij vliegveld. Het centrum en diverse malls zijn goed te bereiken. Nadelen zijn de moskee onder je raam die je elke nacht wakker zingt, en het gebrek aan warm water onder de douche. Maar alles is schoon en het contact met de verhuurder is prettig en snel. Bij aankomst staan water, shampoo en diverse andere dingen klaar.
Novita's is a very helpful host. Her studio is a great deal overall which has an amazing 16th floor view and great swimming pool. The building is super secure which is good but was a bit of an inconvenience at times, like getting in and out of the pool area. There are lots of great food stalls within walking distance. Air con works great. The only negatives are there is no hot water and no refrigerator, it's more less set-up for one person, and for the first few days the prayer music from the mosque (which begins at 3:30am and plays five times throughout the day) is a bit overwhelming/disruptive.
Thakyou novita...i really enjoyed your studio apartment....there were plenty of warungs and shops around to buy food for the day...i even enjoyed the azan from the mosque....more like a lullaby...funny i could even sing it by the time i left....thankyou you also for your personal service....when i made a specific request you happily helped me out.....carol
Everything was good. I met the owner and she was very friendly and helpful. The apartment is fine if you don't need luxury. Be aware there is no fridge, hot water or wifi. If you are a light sleeper also be aware that the apartment faces a very loud mosque that goes off before 4am. The bed is comfortable and the a.c. is great. The apartmrent is a distance from TP, about 20 mins without traffic. With traffic it can be more than double that, so if you need to be in the city center for business early in the morning leave at or before 5:30am. There is also an alfamart and decent restaurant on site. Overall it was good and I will probably stay here again.
The bad: There was no wifi in the room. There was no hot water in the shower. There was no refrigerator. There was no blanket. I had to ask security at the lobby to use their card every time I had to use the elevator.
The good: There was a small portable stove so I could cook. The air conditioning worked great. The bed was comfortable. The room was very clean. There is an Alfamart downstairs along with a hair salon and laundry/dry cleaning and cafes. Best of all, Novi is very nice, friendly and helpful!
I recommend this place if you don’t mind not having wifi in the room.
It is a nice place to sleep.
To bad there is no acces back to appartement with a key if you come back from swimmimg. I miss a fridge to keep drinks cool. You can rent a parking spot For car or motorcicle. It is cheaper then paying by day. ITS a great place if you don't care of luxery.
I will recomend it for rent.
I could enjoy to stay this room. It was clean and comfortable.
And when I went to outside, some taxi are waiting outside of main entrance. It is very convenient. (But just a little far from center of city...)
I think, compared to other rooms in Surabaya, here is valuable.
I've stayed in Novi's studio for 3 nights. It's very clean, good value for money and located in city centre. The studio also stocked with water bottle and soap. Even though I didn't meet Novi, she was very attentive since the begining until to the last contact via phone.
I highly recommend this studio.
1. So easy to move. Taxi wait for passengers at the taxi stand area in front of the apartment. All of the taxi driver who I met in Surabaya know this apartment name. So I don't need to explain about the road except apartment name.
2. Very well secured. I feel very safe in here.
3. Host is very considered. She prepared in studio water, soap and everything what I need for my trip in Surabaya before I arrived.
Thank you for the great space! I want to re visit Surabaya!
Our stay at Novi's was fantastic. The apartment was clean, stocked with water bottles, soap, and conveniently had a small stovetop to use as well. The building itself is very nice, with a swimming pool, gym, and an incredibly kind staff. We didn't get to meet Novi due to our train getting in very early in the morning, but she was very understanding and flexible with our check in time and was incredibly quick to respond to any questions. Definitely a recommended stay and great host!
