BEST WESTERN Papilio Hotel - Building

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.

“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 launch of BEST WESTERN Papilio Hotel increases Best Western International’s Indonesian portfolio to 15 hotels, spread across eight popular destinations.
