Bringing the first Hotel NEO to the bustling city of Surabaya, Archipelago International has taken over the Grand Citihub Hotel in Gubeng and rebranded it to become the Hotel NEO Gubeng (10/9).

The Hotel NEO Gubeng Surabaya is a charming boutique budget hotel featuring 58 rooms over three different room types, complimented by two modern meeting rooms, a coffee shop connecting to a bright and aery lobby and ample of parking space. The Hotel underwent significant upgrades to fit the high standards for NEO Hotels and aims to target travelers who choose to travel on a sensitive budget but appreciate good design and amenities usually associated with more expensive hotels, such as top of the line beds, LCD TVs, mini bars, complimentary “Super Broadband” Wi-Fi of 100 Mbps throughout the entire hotel and IDD telephones.

Located in Gubeng close to the heart of Surabaya’s city center, the hotel is only 33 minutes from the Juanda International Airport. For travelers who use rail transport, Hotel NEO Gubeng Surabaya can be also reached within 7 minutes via the Surabaya Gubeng Station. The hotel is also close to the city’s famed shopping center, the Grand City Mall & Convex.

“Surabaya is Indonesia’s second largest city and the capital of the East Java province. Its business travelers are demanding a higher level of service, facilities and professionalism from their accommodation.  We are happy to be able to convert this hotel not only up to International standards, but also fitting our additional NEO brand features. I’m sure repeat visitors to this area will be very pleased with all the changes and our team looks forward to welcoming new guests as well,” said Ms. Tenaiya Brookfield, VP of Sales and Marketing at Archipelago International.
