I liked the design of the hotel interior. Its looks homey and elegant. The rooms were medium size but was kept clean and feels luxurious. Though the swimming pool is a bit small and its a pity that the breakfast was not up to the standard. The selections were not that much and the food was not tasty at all....

The pictures don't do this property justice. Staff was super attentive from the beginning and my room was spacious and clean. I felt like I got a lot for the price. Loved the javanese colonial but still modern vibe. I stayed in the Deluxe Double room with the balcony. The room has all kinds of amenities I needed. Spacious, and...

But the shower area is spacious enough. Breakfast selection is not that great but enough I guess and I can see they put...

My family and I just booked the room via mobile app at the last minute. We like the room. It's comfortable, clean and nice. The only thing to improve was the bathroom which was too small. Breakfast was good also. Looking forward to stay there again when we visit Malang.

The room is immaculate, in terms of cleanliness, room temperature, bed coziness, turn-down services, bathroom utilities, TV, balcony. They are all perfect. The Shalimar also has a very cozy library / reading room, where you can find books about...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Originally built by the architect Ir. Muller for the Freemasons, the building was opened for the first time in 1933. After the Freemasons, the building became a "SOCIETEIT" where the Dutch and the Dutch speaking community of Malang come to meet friends and entertain themselves with food, music and dancing. In 1964 the building housed the Radio Republik Indonesia (RRI) Malang, but was soon outgrown. In 1993 Malang Inn was opened. However, in 1995, a new law came about where establishments were no longer allowed to use foreign names and this is how The Graha Cakra was established. Mid 2014 The Graha Cakra closed its doors to undergo a thorough renovation to become what it is now, a 5 star boutique hotel. It now houses de Hemel restaurant, Zestien terrace & lounge, De Tjakra Hall, Taman Aroem Spa and Soga Boutique. ... more   less
