For a place that advertises itself as a guesthouse it certainly is of high standard and very reasonably priced compared to some horrible places that I've come across in Indonesia. It's a recently opened business, October 2012 from their website. I stayed here for two nights and while it is located about 20 minutes walk from the centre of Malang, it is very clean and staff on reception have good English and are very helpful and arranged a driver (with a clean car) to Mt Bromo for me.
The room was very good, tea/coffee making facilities, good aircon and a flat panel tv with 30 or so channels. The bed was very comfortable and room was serviced daily.
Wifi signal was reasonably good (better than most places) on ground floor around reception area, weaker on upper floor and I had intermittent signal in the room. Not too bothered by that really.
Breakfast was average, steamed/fried rice which was cold and noodle soup with chicken pieces on both days and some fruit. No fruit juices provided but not sure whether these were available for purchase or not. There was however complimentary tea and cake offered in the afternoons.
One thing that could be provided is a room service menu or at least the option for guests to purchase and bring items to their rooms such as soft drinks or alcoholic beverages in the evening time. These items are in fridges in the dining area adjacent to reception but reception staff don't seem to be in a position or want to sell these items at 10pm from my experience.
Other than that I've no major faults and would highly recommend Kertanegara Guesthouse for a short stay in Malang.
