We stayed just 1 night, on our way to Bromo. Malang itself was not really special in our opinion however. The people at the hotel/guesthouse were very nice and helpful. The room was standard/basic, but efficient. The shower did not really get warm, unfortunately. But overall it was a good stay.

Everything was beyond expectation, staffs were great and helpful, unfortunately they there were only 11 rooms available in this property, so it's a little chance to get the room booked especially in peak season

The Merbabu guest house is our best guest houses on Jawa. The rooms are great. A good shower, big bed and all very clean. The town of Malang isn't that special, but Merbabu makes up for that. Nice and friendly staff and pretty much the whole city in walking distance. Definitely a good place to spend a night or two.... More

We stayed a few nights at the guest house. It was a comfortable stay, but the room was fairly small for 2 people. We have had bigger rooms for the same price in Malang. The location is convenient and the breakfast is pretty nice. Overall, not a bad place to stay.
