We had an OK stay here for 3 nights, comfortable and clean, but it is very much a budget place to stay. The location isn't ideal but it's within walking distance to the centre. Breakfast is decent, they offer Continental, Indonesian and Rice dishes which tasted OK. They also offer room service at cheap prices. We tried to book a...

Although clean and with helpful staff, we would not really recommend this unless you are on a budget. The rooms are small and when opening the door you are immediately in front of the reception, a bit unnerving. Breakfast was a disappointing affair compared to other places we visited while travelling though Java. So all in all I have to...

Lovely guest house with well equipped room and great service. We were greeted with free coffee and afternoon cakes. Breakfast was average. Wifi worked well and we were in easy walking distances of a couple of eating places.

We booked this place through agoda. An hour before our arrival in Malang my husband received an email that out booking has been cancelled and that we were being moved to Shinta hotel. The place was terrible. Think screaming babies and guys hanging out right outside your window all night long. You've been warned.

We booked suite room for my family (4 persons). The room is spacious with separate living & bed room. Room is very clean. And we have balcony which is a bonus. The location is around Ijen which is another plus. Surely we will come back again.

This is small guest house cca 2km from town center. Originally it was Dutch colonial house, now it offers homey atmosphere with open modern lobby where breakfast or free snack is offered (both good). Rooms are very very small, all miss some privacy as they are around opened lobby. So you hear everything (voices, steps, cars or children on the...

I am glad we chose this guest house as base camp during our visit to Malang 2 weeks ago. What you see in the pictures is what you get. It is clean, homey, and all staffs were so helpful and nice. We stayed in a double-bed room upstairs and even though the room size is not that big, particularly for...

This was my first experience ever to stay in a guesthouse and it turns out as a fantastic experience. The room rate was only IDR 500 thousands at that time. For that amount of money, I got a huge Suite room with a king size bed and a sofa bed. It was clean and well furnished. Location is another plus...

But the impression that vanished when the service can be less than satisfactory, when I intended to use the kitchen to cook food for my one year old baby. The...
