Reviewed 15 November 2011

Although this place has definitely seen better days, it is fun to stay at because it feels like a trip back in time. The architecture and the interior design are a mix of styles of the last century. Don't expect anything fancy though.

The pool looks pretty sad and some of the rooms are probably a bit on the loud side. Breakfast is nice though, and afternoon tea in the lobby is a nice touch. Staff are helpful and friendly, the location is convenient.

Reviewed 8 August 2011

We arrived here without a reservation as a base to visit Gunung Bromo.

All the rooms are slightly different as the hotel spreads over several buildings. Our room had a spacious bedroom with various tables and chairs and a wardrobe.The bathroom was quite small but had a western toilet and bath. The shower was linked to the taps and needed to be handheld. 230,000 for two single beds and a/c.

There is a pool table near the bar. Several rooms have tables and chairs in for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Whilst the menu was basic, all the food we ate was flavoursome. Breakfast, which was included, had a fried rice option which was a change from the usual Indonesian egg on toast.

There is free wifi which extends to the rooms. The hotel can help arrange trips to Bromo - 1.30am pick up, 450,000 rupia per person, with reductions for larger groups - and to other cities - Yogykarta 100,000rupia in an 8(max) person minibus.

On the downside, the pool looked a bit dirty and the shower was not hot water all the time - which is a definite after visiting Bromo. And mosquitoes! Our room did get very light in the morning - its an early sunrise here.

Room Tip: We were told a room near the front was noisy due to traffic and when shown it was.

Splendid Inn is located at the center of Malang, with the Balai Kota (City Hall) just opposite the road and the 'bird market' and nightlife within walking distance. The rooms, available in fan-cooled and air-conditioned variants, are not great but acceptable. There was a little pool within the premises (though I didn't use it).

great old charming hotel. lots of charm and atmosphere. Location is great too.
usual issues with water pressure (for indonesia), but there is hot water if you wait a few minutes. ;-)
It's not a Hilton, and is thus priced accordingly. I dunno why people complain in other reviews.

Spendid indeed but not in new splendor , this place has soul and a lifetime of travelers tales . Its layers of granny chic mixed with dutch colonial and a good dash of original retro pieces make this a hard place to dislike . Ok so it has not been modernized but it has been kept meticuisly and the pieces of mismatched furniture are all of good quality so have lasted the test of time . Net curtains and floral print drapes clash well with the 60’s tiled bathroom and avocado sink . No wifi but plenty of lounging places to read and write . At 250,000 IRP per night including a basic but adequate breakfast with add on’s of 60,000 for an extra bed make this a good value for money kind of place . If you are after modern luxury look for somewhere else but if you are happy with quirky cool in a faulty towers kind of way but with excellent service and smiling staff then this is the place for you .
