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.

We were booked here by our tour company. We had traveled from Yogyakarta so arrived early evening only to find they do not do meals in an evening. So had to go out in the dark trying to find a suitable place to eat. The receptionist did point us to one but this was european style (they assume wrongly you... More

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

Friendly and fast response staff, clean and cozy room, very worth it for the money spent. 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

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... More

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... More

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.
