Best Western Opens Its First Property In Surabaya

Best Western International has unveiled its first hotel in Indonesia’s second largest city, Surabaya.

The new BEST WESTERN Papilio Hotel is a modern midscale hotel conveniently located just 20 minutes’ drive from Juanda International Airport and close to popular attractions including Suroboyo Carnival Night Market and the MAS Mosque.

Set in an eye-catching glass and steel building, the hotel offers a choice of spacious guest rooms, all of which come equipped with amenities designed to help guests unwind and stay productive. These include comfortable beds, ergonomic work desks, 32-inch LED TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Guests can take a cooling dip in the outdoor swimming pool, indulge in a sumptuous massage at the spa, or work up a sweat in the fitness center, while kids can make splash in the children’s pool.

BEST WESTERN Papilio Hotel also serves up excellent local and international cuisine at the Mariposa Restaurant, and whatever the time of day, guests can relax and enjoy a drink in the lobby lounge and bar.

And meeting planners will be able to choose from a variety of flexible function spaces, all equipped with the latest audio-visual equipment and served by a dedicated events team.

“As Indonesia’s second largest city, Surabaya was the logical next step for BEST WESTERN International’s Indonesian expansion,” said Ron Pohl, BEST WESTERN International’s Senior Vice President of Brand Management.

“BEST WESTERN Papilio Hotel will be an excellent addition to our rapidly growing portfolio in Indonesia, bringing modern midscale comfort to the rising number of domestic and international travelers Surabaya is now attracting,” he added.

Olivier Berrivin, BEST WESTERN International’s Managing Director of International Operations – Asia, commented; “With its ideal location close to Surabaya’s main business district and attractions, yet away from the worst of the city’s traffic, BEST WESTERN Papilio Hotel truly offers the best of both worlds.

“In addition to this, the hotel’s vast array of amenities exceeds its midscale status, offering guests an elevated experience at a reasonable price point. I am confident this exceptional hotel will become a firm favorite among travelers to Surabaya,” Mr. Berrivin concluded.

The most recent opening- prior to Surabaya- was in July in Solo. With 148 rooms located 82 meters over the street level, the BEST WESTERN PREMIER Solo Baru is the the Central Java city tallest hotel.

The launch of BEST WESTERN Papilio Hotel increases BEST WESTERN International’s Indonesian portfolio to 15 hotels across eight destinations.
