After spend a few days in this guest house, I must say that I enjoy all of the facilities and services that have been offered to me. In the future if I go to Malang again, I definitely will stay in this place.

Beautiful guesthouse near Ijen Blvd
We were welcomed with afternoon snack delivered to the room. We stayed in room 5 which opens up into the atrium with water feature. In a nutshell: Hotel – small, clean with parking space at front which gets busy in the mornings when guests are picked up for their tours. Check in and check out was seamless and efficient. Room 5 - was spacious with ensuite shower/WC, TV, phone, aircon, water kettle and supply of coffee/tea. Wifi – there is wifi in room but you need to login every time you use it. Also, a new wifi code is issued every morning and you can ask for it at breakfast. They said they change the code for security reasons but it was annoying nevertheless. Breakfast – the menu offers 3 Indonesian dishes, toast with sausages/eggs and coffee/tea/fruit juice or hot/cold chocolate Dinner – the hotel doesn’t serve dinner but you can order from a resto nearby and get it delivered. They keep the menu at reception. Alternatively, there is a Fish restaurant (Ikan Bakar Ciancur, or IBC) only a 3mins stroll from the hotel and they do yummy fish dishes but also have a small non fish selection. Location – nice, residential location near Ijen Blvd. Staff – welcoming and helpful. Value for money? Yes.

Clean and Cozy Place to Stay
Clean, cozy rooms and lobby area. Staff were friendly. However no toiletries provided. Internet connectivity is unstable and needs a new password every day.

Nice guesthouse, poor breakfast
Excellent value guesthouse in this price range. Comfortable, and fairly well located. Breakfast is the weak point, and it's probably better to choose the Indonesian option. Other decent breakfast places are not too far either - Und Corner and the new Java Dancer are both walkable.

Cheap stay with minimum facilities
This is my first time staying at a guest house, I was attracted to booked because of the rate. The guest house is just a place for stay, there is no breakfast buffet, no restaurant, no lounge, no pool, no gym, just a room to stay. Our breakfast was instant noodle or fried rice. The internet was very slow and most of the times you cannot get a connection while inside the room. My difficulties with poor connection also double because the hotel require you to relogin every 15 minutes. I was using my iPhone, but my wife with android seems to be fine. The location is a bit far from Jatim Park 1 - 2, around 45 minutes driving, if you decide to spend your holiday just to visit the park, I suggest staying at the Batu area, not in the Malang city. However the guest house location is close to culinary places, near Jakarta road and Kawi, also near the Tugu/Melati restaurant. Only 11 rooms in the guest house, 3 suites and 8 standard rooms. If you decide to take suite, make sure to get room number 3, as room 1 and 2 is too close to the reception. With the price and value of what I get, the guest house is good/average.
