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... More

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... More

Very rare I give away 5 stars, but this one is a winner. Rates are fixed at 360.000 IRP (11/2014) Rooms are really nice. Very clean, welcoming. The beds are fine and the sheets or pillows do not smell at all (important sign). Breakfast is 90% Indonesian which is good. The continental one (toast, egg, bacon) I hadn't had. Note... More

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
