This place is cheap and cheerful and is suitable for those looking for a short stay in the Padangbai area. Our room was overall fairly clean but the stinky toilet was a disappointment. In contrast, the shower was excellent and the full four post mosquito net did its job well. Power cuts were frequent. A/C worked well but noisy. Rob... More

I stayed here for one night recently as a stop over before heading elsewhere in Bali. The room was clean and the shower great. The rooms are small and slightly claustrophobic as they are very long with just doors at the end, leading to a tiny patio. It would have been better if the walls were painted white as in... More

We stayed for one night during our stopover in Padangbai. We had a a bus to catch the next morning. Zen Inn was perfect, it's in a good location and close to the Perama bus office. The bed was comfy and shower one of the best I've had in Bali! Staff were friendly. Would come again.

We arrived to a super warm welcome from the lovely staff who gave me the nickname 'chicken' because of my blue Mowhawk! The rooms have beautiful thatched walls and extremely comfortable 4 poster bed with curtains. Immaculate bathroom with a fantastic shower (it seems like showers in Bali are hit and miss but not this one) and a little personal... More

We chanced upon the zen inn by (happy) accident . Sited right next to the harbour in Padang bai should you be thinking of going to the gili Islands this is a little gem to be treasured and actually worth staying in for a few nights rather than a stopover. Prices reasonable but what did it for me was the... More

Recently spent 3 nights at Zen Inn and the hospitality from Rob, Lala and the girls was amazing!! I was treated like part of the family. All the food I ate was fabulous especially the pork schitnzel and a great big breakfast to set you up for a days exploring. Rob arranged my airport transfers and the same car and... More

Made all the better by the attentive owner Rob and lovely staff. Rooms are very homely and the food is fantastic whether going for a western or local option. Basic breakfast included but if you want one of the more substantial cooked options then they discount the price of the continental off the menu breakfast which is a nice touch.

My boy friend and I decided to stay the night before heading to Gili T island at beginning of April. My bf was coming down from northern Bali and I was reuniting him at Padan Bai area that's when we came across with this true hidden 'gem' hotel. The owner Rob's hospitality and meticulous arrangement to pick me up from... More

I have just spent 2 nights at the zen inn in Padang Bai and it was the best start to a holiday you could wish for. From start to finish Rob, Lala and the girls were all very friendly and helpful.

Great place to stay in Pedang Bai. Rob, the proprietor, was very helpful in arranging transportation for us to and from the Gilis. We would definitely recommend the Zen Inn to others. They also had a very attractive package offer for room plus speed boat tickets that we took advantage of.
