If you are looking for a budget Hotel in Padang Padang, this is about it; from $15 USD a night to $25 USD per night for air conditioning and hot water. It's in a quite area of the hills of Uluwatu, overlooking beautiful Padang Padang beach. Half an hour by Taxi $15-20 USD, from Denpasar's Ngurah Rai International Airport. Just a short walk down the hill to great waves at Padang Padang. Swim in the bay or surf the Reef right out in front (for beginners, longboarders through experts) the Point for shortboarders or boggie boarders, plus you can paddle over to Impossibles. You can rent a surfboard from the Surfshop next door or eat OK food at the local restaurant. Across the street is the Mango Tree Cafe and the Pink Coco Hotel and restaurant.
Both are expensive and pretentious. I was staying at the Pink Coco which is an "Internet Trap Hotel" as it's one of the few listed. It rates itself as "Three Stars" try "One & Half Stars". Pricing runs from $35 USD per night for a "Standard" read "Primitive" room (concrete floor with no air conditioning) to a "Deluxe" read "Budget" room, with A/C for $75 USD. It has, as advertised half a dozen free Wi-Fi portals, NONE of which work properly. It has an Italian restaurant that plays loud music, serves overpriced, average food, with 15% built in gratuity and they still expect a tip. It boasts a swimming pool, which no ones uses; you don't fly to Bali to sit around a Budget Hotel's swimming pool. You have to pay for your Wi-Fi at the Padang Padang Inn but it's cheap.
Note be careful what you eat and do not drink or even brush your teeth with the water, plus stay away from fruit juices, they don't call it Bali Belly for nothing! You can rent a motor bike from the Padang Pagang Inn for about $5.00 USD a day but be very careful. Note there are several Luxury Hotel Resorts in the area if you don't mind paying 200 plus euros a night?
