“Clean, safe, and convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

We stayed one night since we were flying out the next day. The hotel is fairly new, clean, and very conveniently located, close to shops, restaurants, spas, and the beach. I'm a budget traveler so wasn't looking for anything fancy, and this was perfectly fine. It has its own restaurant and we had the excellent dinner special at a very good price. They also offered us two free iced teas and a 10% meal discount. The bed was comfortable, the rooms were clean, there was a flat-screen tv, and they provided shampoo, body lotion, hand wash, bottled water, and tea at no charge. They're located 10 minutes from the airport and only charged 30,000 rupiah for a ride there.

Room Tip: My room was on the ground floor behind the lobby so was nice and quiet.

We stayed one night on the last day in Bali. Room was simple and clean. Breakfast was average. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel is located near the beach and shopping areas.

Best of all is its free transport to airport.

Got what I thought was a bargain price per night for this hotel but once we checked in I could see that the rooms don't really reflect the photos on various websites. Even though this is a fairly new hotel, our room looked grubby, with dark scuff marks on the wall and the sheets and pillowcases looked grey. The room was sparsely furnished. if the air conditioning was on it wasn't working too well, the room was quite hot.

The view out the window overlooked what appeared to be a rubbish dump. Our fridge was full of water and there was even a small towel placed in front of the fridge to mop it up before we even entered our room.

We didn't even get to see what the bathroom was like as the bathroom door was locked. I rang down to reception to report this and a maintenance man came quite quickly to open the door for us. To my surprise instead of producing a key he went at the door with a hammer and chisel, got the door open somehow and then told me the solution was just not to close the bathroom door. When I said that that was silly, we had to be able to open and shut the bathroom door he then started bashing away at the door lock again - well it is not really worth going in to because at this point I decided to get out of there.

So we went to find somewhere else to stay and even though they didn't have to the hotel decided they would refund one night out of three for us which was quite a nice gesture. I personally thought this hotel was really cheap and nasty and definitely not my cup of tea. Those on a smaller budget might find this hotel to their liking - I would definitely not ever bother again.

Not happy with this hotel at all.Their organisation skills leave a lot to be desired. We had to wait a long time for our rooms in the heat and then when we did get the rooms,they weren't the rooms we had booked and when finally getting them, the room was so roasting hot, not even the aircon had been put on. I understand people choose to stay longer so in that event they should at the very least put us in rooms of the same quality if not better but certainly not less. There was no sort of compensation for that(free drinks or dinner, something...). We were then made to pay for a cancelled room which they new had been cancelled the day before we arrived, but only tell us it has been cancelled the day that room was no longer our booking, then blaming Expedia. It wasn't Expedia's fault as they don't run the Tusita hotel, it was the hotels fault. Who lets people book into a room if it has been cancelled before they have even arrived and then tell them it has been cancelled 6 days later after using it and then charge them for it. Even when we did get the rooms that had been booked they weren't the 2 deluxe joining rooms but by that point pretty much over all of it. Very bad service and we will never stay there again. The breakfast wasn't much and pretty much all Asian food. The staff were lovely but the management were not. Disgraceful way to be treated, but a big dampener on the whole holiday from the get-go. We will never stay there again or recommend it either. Our one holiday a year and they ruined it with many things.

Room Tip: Just so you know, the roof pool water is not cold or even cool, quite warm in fact. High tax when yo...

I used this just as a base before flying out to the airport at midnight. For less than $40 it was the best use of time. Checked in early and had the day to shop, quick trip to the beach and to experience Kuta before leaving home. Had no desire to stay in Kuta so perfect hotel to fill in time, had a nap and shower before flying. Great staff despite my short stay. Awesome pool. Clean rooms, good location for close to airport.

nice hotel..and the location is not far from the beach, shopping centers, and airports.
swimming pool on the roof and you can enjoy the view from the rooftop.
They decorate the room a little simpler. But it doesn't matter because i do not spend my vacation time in the room, right?? ;D

I've spent 2 nights here, from March 30th until April 1st 2014 at the Nyepi (Silent Day) Holiday.

Hey, I know it's not Hyatt or Four Seasons but it's a fair price for a budget hotel.

The front desk service is average, so so. The room is good enough. Overall service is okay. They have rooftop pool at the 6th floor. Nice pool. They have a delicious menu of black pepper chicken. The hotel is only 200 meters away to Lippo Mal Kuta.

However, there are stains on the bed sheet and the towel are bit of worn off. Another disadvantage is the limited parking space. You have to go around the hotel to park at the backside of the hotel.

In the end, it's an affordable yet cozy stay for holiday, especially for Nyepi :)
