We arrived at Ratu Guesthouse after a long day of travelling. We stayed two nights. We arrived at 11pm but Ratu was still there to greet us. Ratu is a really great guy and very helpful. His guesthouse is in a good location for finding warungs and meeting local people who are very friendly when you make an effort. The... More

Even though I was planning to stay a week in gili gede at ViaVacare I chose to stay 5 days in mataram with Ratu, his friends and family even though Mataram isn't that special. Ratu's guesthouse is rather basic, unbelievably cheap but very comfortable and was a perfect home away from home for me. Especially after being away from my... More

this sweet little guesthouse with its nice garden is owned by the most generous, friendly and happy man, Ratu. With his self made maps of the town and surroundings you will never get lost! The rooms are simple but spacious and clean.

Came across this place on TripAdvisor while looking a place to stay to sort out visas in Mataram. Very happy with our decision! Mataram itself wasn't of much interest sight-wise (we tried... walked around for hours), but the people were generally very friendly and responded to big smiles and a few words. Ratu's place is simple and in the middle... More

Ratu is the friendliest host you'll ever have the pleasure of staying with. His guesthouse is an oasis in the lively but noisy city that is Mataram.

I stayed for 3 weeks whilst studying at the Uni of Mataram at Ratu's Guest House next to the Mirasa bakery, opposite the Cakra Market. Despite being literally in the centre of all the business action it was a haven of peace and sanity and at a very cheap price (around $US 6 per night). It is a small Balinese... More

I am glad to see there are already some very positive reviews for this guest house. I just add my two cents. I have visited Indonesia twice, many places big and small, for 4 months total. The Ratu Guesthouse is easily the best one among many guest houses/hotels I have stayed. I too just bumped into this guest house while... More

We came across Ratu Guesthouse by chance, trying to escape the imminent monsoon downpour... and what a wonderful place to stay! Ratu is the friendliest, most welcoming and extremely helpful person we've met in Indonesia (and possibly out entire travels). He has a great knowledge about Mataram, Lombok and the rest of Indonesia and will be able to answer any... More

I thought I already found the perfect place in Mataram but then, by random, I came to Ratu's Guesthouse... He is really a unique person, and it's him who makes his place so special. Located in the commercial/shopping area of Cakranegara in Mataram, you find everything you need within close distance. The homestay itself is located in a quiet garden... More
