Jakarta, October 31st 2016 –  favehotels, Archipelago International’s distinctive portfolio is proud to welcome two more properties to its portfolio. favehotels’ portfolio consists of 47 hotels nationwide, bringing the brand even closer to welcoming its 50th property.  The recently opened hotels include favehotel Rungkut – Surabaya and favehotel Sudirman –  Bojonegoro in East Java.

Launched in 2009, favehotel is a pioneer in the smart and budget hotel space and has grown exponentially from less than five hotels to almost 50 hotels. Inexpensive, fresh, attractive, contemporary and simple are the attributes that make favehotels so surprisingly different and destined to become the favorite choice for smart, budget-minded travelers.

The smart design and clever use of space in the hotel's 100 to 250 guest rooms will be aimed at encouraging guest productivity while facilitating relaxation. In designing favehotels we have strived to avoid the "cookie cutter approach" to budget class branded hotels. Several different versions of the interior and facade designs are presented to hotel developers and they are strongly encouraged to adopt one in its entirety according to cost, location and customer profile.

“favehotel is expanding nationwide at a rapid pace and we’re thrilled to introduce this brand to Rungkut –  Surabaya and Bojonegoro. Our close proximity to important landmarks and modern facilities make this hotel become the ideal choice for business travelers and vacationers who want easy access to commerce, culture and recreation,” said Yohanes Sulistiyono Hadi as Regional General Manager of Archipelago International for the Central Region.
