“A so so stay !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Honestly that this hotel is in a good location as it is quite close to the beach ! It is a nice complex with swimming pool and garden. Staffs are friendly execpt the old woman at reception.

+ Positive:
- Near the beach.
- Good breakfast.
- Staffs are helpful
- Swimming pool and garden.

+ Negative:
- It really needs an improvement. The room is not clean, bathroom look so old and dirty. It is not the fault of rooms' cleaner.
- Located in a messy street which got lots of crazy money exchangers who try to cheat and take money from you so please DO NOT CHANGE YOUR MONEY HERE. Besides that, this street is very dirty and small so sometimes cars can not come in and we needed to walk alot.

Have stayed here 3 times now over 4 years... This time we had a 2 year break between visits & I'm still happy to say the masainn gives you a little piece of Bali paradise. The prices have increased from last visit( just under $60 for a double compared to under $40 two years ago)... But this is still ridiculously cheap. In fairness the breakfast which is included in this price has increased. This includes indo buffet twice a week. Probably even too big a breakfast for Bali when food is so cheap & everywhere.... Rooms are starting to get a little old & maybe may need some upkeep / paint/ new mattresses/ pillows very soon... But again... For the price there is nothing wrong with the rooms.. Clean & neat. The Inn itself is the draw card.. So close to the beach & designed so that all the noise from poppies lane cannot be heard. Two great pools. Beautiful courtyard, & not too big a resort so it never seems overcrowded...the real Bali experience in my eyes. The main residence of the owners is beautiful & worth going just to see the gorgeous design & stained glass windows. I still don't like Kuta very much but loved the masa inn & always will:)

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back & on the ground floor. This way you get a lovely front porch with cha...

Always stay here for part of our annual holiday in Bali. This way we get to compare it to the other places that we stay at for the other part of the holiday. We always choose similar standard hotels and the Masa comes up with the goods each time. Clean, friendly and very 'Balinese'. For under $60 AUD per room including a basic breakfast it is still good value and better standard than other similar priced hotels throughout the Kuta area. The rooms we had this visit were not our preference as they were ground floor near the small pool and reception area. We were disturbed each night by noisy guests returning to their rooms at all hours of the morning and showing little consideration for other guests. Book very early and ask for rooms around the big pool. It is much quieter there.

Room Tip: rooms around the big pool are quieter but ground floor more expensive.

I stayed with my son in Masainn for five days, following the advice of my daughter who used to stay there overnight, on her way to East Timor. It is a small hotel with beautifull gardens , a good swimming pool, basic rooms, nice breakfast. The service is friendly and helpfull.
It has everything nearby : beach, restaurants, bars with free wifi, shops, hairdresser...You can not ask for more with the price we pay.

Room Tip: Rooms around the swimmingpool are not so quiet.

I stayed at the La Walon and have stayed at the Masa Inn. My best friend did and was disappointed when I started gushing about my stay next door at the La Walon. The rooms are grubby and my friend has been eaten alive by bed bugs The service is shocking and the desk staff never smile I would reccomend not to stay there as the prices are more expensive then the La Walon but the La Walon is better quality how does that work

only stayed one night, on the way out to the outer islands..but wished I had more time to enjoy the masainn
for the price, the facilities are very above average

I have been to the Masa Inn twice now and it does not disappoint. The hotel is located on Poppies I, which at one end of the street, is the beach and then the other end takes you to the night life area. The entire street is filled with little local shops where you can barter your prices and local restaurants. It's the perfect area for those looking for a good time. The pool in the back makes an easy place to meet fellow travellers. The breakfast is small with crepe like things or breakfast sandwiches served with fresh fruit smoothies (all delicious!). The rooms are basic, but you're in Indonesia. There's air conditioning, bath/shower, tv with English channels (be prepared to be watching "The Nanny" all vacation), patio chairs and small table to the front of your room. The restaurants on the street are great, the one directly across from the entrance has good Indonesian food and drink specials. Note that if your getting a "jug" of a cocktail they will come in a tall skinny container (probably holds about 700ml). If you go just up the street towards the beach on the right hand side there's another restaurant that serves more american styled meals and are usually playing a movie for everyone's entertainment. I highly suggest finding the nicer restaurant "Un's" down the opposite end of the street down a little ally off the right hand side, prices maxing out around 150,000 rupia ($15) for steak, chicken, pasta.. Try their signature margarita! Could not have been in a better area! I have stayed at the Febri's but I found the location wasn't as good as it's way down the road back towards the airport and you're paying only for the resort and not the location.

Room Tip: If you have lots of luggage try to get a room on the bottom floor, rooms in the back have the mini p...
