This place was quite creepy and was so run down. Everything was dirty, bathroom had a very odd smell and hadnt been cleaned in a long time. The toilet didnt flush so i had to fill the bin up with water from the shower to make do. No wifi. Basic breakfast.

Well, where to start? There is actually something pretty tragic going on with this place. Once set-up and owned by a swiss/indonesian couple it is now being run by the indonesian only. It must have been a really nice complex back then, but now it just is completely depreved. There hasn’t been done any maitenance since then and they aren’t... More

Horribly kept room it was dirty smelt bad and bed was absolutely disgusting. Shower didn't work, staff were not friendly and all in all it was not a pleasant stay and I would not go back. You can find much nicer places in Lombok for similar prices.

It was a nice place back in the years, but as there seems to be no maintanance it can feel a bit spooky. It should be nice if someone buys it and renew it. Then it can be a beautiful spot. The people working there seemed to be hanging around and a little bit bored. However, they are very friendly.

This place boasts some wonderful bedbugs that chewed up mine and my girlfriend's arms. After showing the staff the next morning my arms, there was no "Sorry about that" or the slightest hint of apology. Instead: "you take another room yeah." We decided to take our chewed up arms and move. On the way out though, all of a sudden... More

The location is probably the only good thing about this old and run down hotel. The garden is unkempt, poolside chairs - old and half broken, in the territory some bungallows are half collapsed and taken over by the jungle. The worst part though is the sad state of plumbing and bathrooms. Toilets would not flush and the room stinks... More

Kuta Lombok is short on decent, reasonably priced places to stay. Many are unfortunately looking "tired". This place fits the bill as a place to stay for a night or two. We turned up and arranged one of the larger poolside villas for 400,000Rp per night(posted was 550,000Rp). Generous sized, split level older Balinise styled room with separate outdoor bathroom....

The staff is realy friendly but the rooms and the accommodations seems to be a bit old. It's a big place with some balinees influence wath makes it a nice atmosphere but too bad that it isn't all well maintained, the pool is nice but the room we had was not more than ok.

Not a bad place to stay while in Lombok. I stayed here in October 2012 for 2 weeks and had a very pleasant stay. The rooms were nice, beds were somewhat comfy, and free breakfast is included. There were 3 of us in our room which made the cost $5.66USD per person per night!!! Best part about this hotel is... More
