We only ate here, but found the food delightful! I had an itch for something familiar and got tacos, normally a bust in Asia. These were really great, with delicious meat and peppers simmered in a familiar mix of spices. My girlfriend enjoyed her chicken breast sandwich. We originally came for cappuccinos, they were good and the wifi was fast,... More

I had only planned to spend one night in Padangbai for diving and therefore was willing to stay in a more budget, less comfortable place. Zen Inn was fantastic, far exceeded these expectations and made me want to stay another night or two. The room was small but cozy with a big bed and a mosquito net. It had plenty... More

The staff were friendly and the room was large and spacious. The Air con unit was modern. There were water bottles in the room waiting for us which were welcomed as we had just came from Lovina. The bed was large and comfortable to. We didn't eat or drink at the bar so can't comment but looked okay. The location... More

We stayed here on the way to the Gilis for one night - great value for money. Rooms are clean, bright and the beds are very comfortable. The restaurant is good - nice breakfast. Helpful owners. If you're looking for somewhere to stay in Padang Bai, it'll be hard to beat the Zen Inn for value.

It was a a spur of the moment decision that took me and my friend to padangbai so we just stumbled upon Zen Inn and booked it the day before we got there...and we're happy we did! First and foremost - very cheap, which was why we didn't know what to expect. However, we were happily surprised. The rooms are... More

Nice, but small rooms equipped with a doublebed and some shelves. Mosquito net is provided, and it´s a model that actually keeps covering the bed. The bathroom is fairly sized and hot water is in abundance. Clean and tidy. If you are a very light sleeper you may notice the stream of trucks going to the ferry terminal. Very reasonably... More

We only stayed one night but can't rate highly enough in terms of how much Rob helped with the rest of our travels! He sorted out transfers from the airport, boats to and from the islands, and organised at short notice various taxis and drop offs for us on our separate ways back at the end of our holiday with...

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
