Staying in an apartment offers both privacy and space for all tourists who seek affordable place to stay. Let's not forget that some apartments are only a few steps away from the best private university in the city, including The Square Apartment that is located just the opposite of Universitas Kristen Petra.

By the way, this apartment also serves as a student's dormitory, with separated male and female rooms, which makes this apartment a perfect place to stay when you have businesses to do in the Southern Surabaya area (workshops, seminars, cultural exchanges, and others). The apartment is only 15-30 minutes driving from Juanda International Airport and Purabaya (Bungurasih) inter-city bus terminal.
