Stayed here 11th to14th Nov. (Four Nights) with my son in his 20s.Read the reviews on TA then booked directly by sending E-mail to hotel. What I usually do is that I first short list the hotels filtering by traveler rating and my price range and location . I think It is always better to be in an area close to public transport ATMs restaurants shopping etc. Initially I chose Nusa Dua area and booked a hotel there but cancelled it because of the distance from airport and other visiting places. If you want to be where all the action is then choose Kuta. If it's the culture scene you want then Ubud is for you.
This hotel's location is good its on the beach front but you cannot see the beach. Reason is that there is a road in front of the hotel and then there is a wall and then the beach.You just cross the road enter through the several little gateways and you are on the beach takes in all 45 seconds to get to the beach
There was a deal on the rooms if booked for three nights in a row with one way airport transfer and 20% discount in their excellent Italian restaurant thrown in. This is where breakfast is served and if you can get a seat near there windows you can see the sea beach and the sea. Breakfast is usual buffet style with some Italian(Pasta rissoles etc) and local dishes like Nasi Goreng and noodles. The lady at the egg station is nice and makes the eggs the way you like it.Variation on the menu not much but it is unreasonable to expect it when there is such a spread. It is not a 5* property so don't expect 5* BF. It is a small boutique hotel
They advertised hotel to Airport transfer but I requested it the other way round. I recommend this because transfer from Airport is expensive.When leaving from the hotel you can always hail a cab cruising on the road when you come out of the hotel and get it for one third of the price the hotel normally charges i.e15USD
The check -in was reasonably quick but they asked for payment up-front(?)but anyway that did not bother us much. The girl at the reception told us she has given us an upgrade we had booked a garden room. She said she had upgraded us to suite.There is a welcome drink and garland etc.The lobby itself is not air conditioned and can be unbearably humid The room (133)They call it garden view but actually faces a similar row of rooms across a path but is partially concealed by plantation was nice reasonably large, working Ac, clean and comfortable bed ,tea coffee facility, bathrobe slippers nice toiletries including dental and shaving kit. Use of woven hats etc.As soon as you get out there are myriads of eating places ATMs and money changers. Its a 15min walk to Kuta square Mata Hari's and Discovery mall.the usual kitschy souvenir shops etc.If you want a slightly more upmarket area with more glitzy stores then try Seminyak
