“A dreadful experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2009

I have been to Bali 16 times and this was my 17 visit.I stayed here the first time in1991 when it used to be called 'BRUNA BEACH HOTEL'.It was wonderful and year after year during my visits to Bali i have not stayed anywhere else but in this hotel.About five years ago a different management took over and the downfall started.The atmosphere and ambience was gone After a four year lapse I decided to try this hotel again. They did many changes but alas it is just a paint job and cementing the walkway.The aircon does not work the staff attitude is 'zero' .I checked in about 3 in the afternoon and I was out by five. the same day.The aircon was not working the lights were so dim you could hardly see yourself in the mirror.The mini fridge was rusty and there was a terrible smell in all the rooms I inspected.Dont let your holiday be spoiled by a hotel which does not want to spend money to upgrade itself.Bali is a beautiful place and the people warm.Places like this 'hotel' gives it a negative attutide.Avoid 'PURI ETNIK HOTEL'

We were 'dumped' in this disgusing place after arriving at Champlung Mas to find that they had overbooked and did not have rooms (which we had booked and paid for 10 months previously) for our party of 9. We were quickly pushed into the Champlung Mas bus and driven to Puri Etnik. Now, I am an experienced budget traveller who has, among other things, backpacked for many months through India and have stayed at some pretty seedy places. However, Puri Etnik is quite simply the filthiest, most run down, hazardous and down right ugly place I have ever seen. After looking at room after room, we refused point blank to stay at this "hotel". My advice to any traveller is to avoid this place like the plague.....

My previous reviews say it all but there is nothing like seeing photos. Don't stay here!
