              feels like home”

              lovely rooms, helpful staff, great shower

              Merbabu Guest House is a perfect base to explore Malang city, it is in walking distance to Boulevard Ijen, the military museum and the Sunday market. To go to the history musum, City Hall and bird / flower / fish market you can easily take a pedi-cab (5-10mins). The staff was amazingly friendly and spoke English very well. They made me feel very welcome and comfortable, and helped me with all my questions. Rooms were very clean, the bed perfectly comfortable and the shower had good pressure and proper hot water. I booked a Bromo tour and Batu / rainforest tour through their reception. They work with a local partner company who made these tours a really great and special experience. The only downside was that all rooms face the small, beautiful inner yard which is also the restaurant / breakfast / lounge area. So it can get a bit noisy in the morning.

              Satisfied ”

              We booked Merbabu Guest House after reading the amazing reviews on here. Our stay exceeded our expectations beyond belief. For us this trip had been planned for a while and definitely worth the wait. From the moment we stepped through the front door we were treated like we were the only people in the hotel and nothing was a problem. We did not see our cases again until we reached our room. Our room was amazing and the turn down service is very special. We will definitely be returning to this special hotel and will highly recommend Merbabu Guest House to anyone.

              Amazing hotel with amazing service!”

              Beautifully presented, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was scrumptious!

              we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at merbabu. unfortunately we only stayed one night as we were driving from yogya to surabaya - we were so impressed that we will make another trip to malang and stay at merbabu longer, next time we come to indonesia. we were pleasantly surprised, as the guest house looked even better in real life than in the photo.

              Truly homely guest house with a touch of luxury”

              Suburban environment yet near enough to all the action; friendly and obliging staff who go out of their way to cater our needs

              We learned from the staff that the property was only recently renovated into a guest house - minimalistic style but warm and charming. The room with twin beds that we stayed in the first two nights was small, but for the third and last day of our stay they managed to transfer us to a room with a terrace and a king size bed which made our stay more pleasant. One staff in particular, Rene, was very helpful giving us advice on how to get around and even helped purchase food products from their pasar. Malang region is nice and if we have the chance to make another visit, Merbabu Guesthouse will be our choice of stay.
