Favehotel MEX Surabaya is located in the center of Surabaya, a 5-10 minute walk from Tunjungan plaza, the biggest mall in Surabaya. Also it is a walkable distance from the business centers, and the river front in Surabaya. Midway between Favehotel MEX Surabaya and Tunjungan Plaza are several bars and cafes that are “not cheap” but with high service and high quality food and drinks.
The hotel is in not very expensive compared to other high budget hotels in Surabaya, however, it is not cheap. If you have a bit high budget, I would call this an average priced hotel. However, if you’re a backpacker with very limited budget, Favehotel MEX Surabaya is definitely out of your range.
Besides the amazing room and very clean bathroom (including fresh towels, new soap bars, tooth paste and tooth brushes,) the hotel has a very special breakfast included in the price which is an open buffet of a variety of food, Indonesian and Western all together, as well as endless supply of coffee and juice. I certainly loved that part, it made the price paid for the room justifiable!
An added plus to Favehotel MEX Surabaya is that the receptionists do speak English, something that is usually rare to find even in hotels in Java Island and most of Indonesia.
If you want a more local experience, food and cultural wise, it is also nearby, considering all of Indonesia, even the high class streets will have street vendors selling everything and all types of food.
