      Just few steps to the train station. It can be nice or bad. Nice if you travel with train, bad if the sound of train bothers you. Pool is excellent. Restaurant seems nice but I didn't try the food. Parking lot is good. Room is good. City view from the window, but not really good.

      Nice hotel”

      Good hotel. But Malang is now (almost) completely alcohol free. So, this hotel has a beautiful alcohol free rooftop bar and restaurant. Food is good, but forget about a cold beer or glass of wine. For travelers who prefer a more tolerant way of life: avoid Malang

      No refrigerator in the room. Only 1 keycard is provided. Location is right behind the train station, could hear the train blowing the horn from the bedroom. Not walking distance to anywhere except for the train station. Car park is large enough. Breakfast variety is just basic.
