Welcome to the beautiful city of Malang, the second city I loved the most in Indonesia, after my hometown Bandung. Located close to Surabaya, Malang is very busy on weekends, because many people go to Malang for a weekend getaway. Same story with weekend in Bandung, packed with people from Jakarta.
To add the existing reviews in tesyasblog on hotels and guesthouses in Malang, we would like to share about Hotel Santika Malang, the hotel I used to go on my business trip.

For me, there were two great things about Santika Malang: its pool and the breakfast. There's no doubt that Santika is famous for their food, and so was in Malang. The pool located near the lobby and the restaurant, for me it was the best pool in Malang, until we stayed at Harris Hotel Malang.

Room was ok but quite expensive for Malang city. Having a convention center next to the hotel, the rooms are usually fully booked by the guests attending a seminar or meetings. Many times we could not book a room at Santika Malang because it is fully booked.
If you stay with your children, Santika Malang has a family premier room: a duplex room with second floor area for your children. But of course this kind of room is quite expensive.
With the new hotels coming to Malang, I am sure that Santika should also offer competitive price to their guests. Otherwise people will look after a newer hotel with more affordable price in Malang.
