I stayed in Helios Hotel for 3 nights in 04/2017 in an AC room on the upper floor pointing pointing to the inner court. My room was spacious, clean and with big comfy bed. Bathroom is new and clean as well. Breakfast was also good. On the rooftop is the Kampong Hostel which is a nice place for beer in...

We booked an Executive room on the second floor overlooking the car park and the street. Reception staff were friendly enough, and the open plan lobby, restaurant and travel agency is well cared for and stylishly modern. But the room was a disappointment and nowhere near good enough for the premium price we paid. It smelt damp when we arrived...

The hotel in the centre of Malang, value with money, not too far from street food, the breakfast was good. They gave us buffet with 5 menus and coffee+tea free refill. Clean, cheap, nice, and comfort.

Nice from the outside, disgusting from the inside! It looks like a nice and fancy hotel. That's what the price is at as well. Such a shame all other hotels were full and it was getting dark so we wanted to make a choice quickly. We've paid 280.000 idr per night, which was way too expensive. The rooms are moistly...

Stayed here for a night after Bromo trip to catch the flight in Surabaya next day. My room was on the ground floor near the reception and there was some construction near my room which made it a bit noisy. The staff of the hotel was nice, professional and willing to help. However, the staff on the rooftop were opposite....

We got at the hotel at night. The staff was very clueless and quite rude asking us to pay before we see the room many times. The room smelled like sewage but the ac made it a little better. At least, even though they don't speak English very well, the girls of the day shift were a lot nicer. Wifi...

Luckily we only stayed here for 2 nights as longer would have been unbearable. It is advertised as a 'backpackers home' and that is definitely not the case. The hotel staff were less than friendly, little to do while there, poor breakfast and the hotel was full of an entire bus of school children under the age of 12. The...

Hotel Helios is good value. There are not that many budget places in Malang. It is cheap and clean with a variety of rooms to choose from. Worth spending the little extra for the best rooms, but the cheaper ones are adequate and there is also hostel type accommodation for those who want to pay the lowest prices.. Staff are...

Helios is one of the only tourist hotels in Malang and for the price it isn't too bad of a deal. It is located just 10 minutes from the train station and within walking distance to shops and the park.
