I have stayed at this place a few times and have loved it. Close to all the shopping and restaurants it's a little oasis in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Kuta. The staff are just so lovely and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are fairly basic but CLEAN and comfortable and the cocktails at the swim up bar are fantastic. While you can hear the faint doof doof of the night clubs on some nights it really has had no effect on my husband or myself when sleeping. I just recently got back from Bali and unfortunately stayed at another hotel on Legian beach which had been booked by friends and it was not a patch on this hotel. I'm planning my next visit for later in the year and I will be booking the Niche.
