We stayed 5 nights at the Merbabu Guest House and it was a very positive experience. The Guest House was spotlessly clean, the breakfast delicious and the service faultless, I had the Indonesian special breakfast each day and it was always delicious and looked amazing too. On our final day I went into the kitchen to give the amazing elderly... More

Very nice and clean guesthouse. With big rooms, nice sheets, clean bathroom and a good location in Malang! Staff is very helpful and friendly. A negative thing: we had a room next to the reception and it was a bit noisy!

We were welcomed with afternoon snack delivered to the room. We stayed in room 5 which opens up into the atrium with water feature. When we were led to room 5 my heart sank as I remembered the TA review about room 5 – but the room was lovely and we didn’t have the damp smell or issues with ants.... More

This is a really nice guest house. Made welcome with afternoon tea and snack, nice breakfast. Only downside we had ants in our room and in the bathroom which also had a bad damp smell due to poor ventilation. Wifi in room but need to enter code each time you use.

The hotel is very nice. Small but beautiful, clean and the staff was very friendly. Pros: excellent location, adequate parking lot, beautiful interior, value for money. Cons: no amenities, no privacy (the olace I think used to be residential place), very limited selection of breakfast (fried rice, instant fried noddle, american breakfast), wifi connection is bad.

This guest house gives a comfy and homey feel. The hotel staff was nice and corteous. The room (standard type) is not too spacious, but it is clean and well-maintained. There is a park in front of the guest house if you want to take a stroll, play futsal, or just sit and enjoy the day. And also there is... More

We got a different type of room vs what we booked, however the staff were very prompted and solve the issue by giving discounts in the room we stayed in. For your improvement : 1. billing mechanism needs improvement as there was too many... More
