“Lovely Hotel and great pool and staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

I stayed with my son from the 25th May to the 3rd June and then extended due to such a wonderful stay
Firstly I would like to commend your staff and their friendly professionalism to the guests. It is a pleasure to stay at your Hotel. The 24hour room service and reception is a wonderful bonus for your guests and the food is absolutely terrific.

Also I would like to commend you on the pool and the "no children" policy for those of us that prefer to have an adults only holiday.
I have stayed at many many different Hotels from Sanur to Seminyak to Kuta and Legian and your establishment is certainly the most inviting and well run for guests I have had the pleasure to stay at in the last 7years of 3 trips a year to Bali, I will certainly be recommending your establishment to all my friends and family in the future as Perth people tend to be such a high rate of travelers to Bali due to our lucky 3.5 hr flight.

The rooms are clean and neat and lovely shower with the big head on it and Plenty of hot water.
Complimentary water each day is always a bonus and the multiple channels and DVD are new and efficient.

The swim up bar is terrific and never had a problem no matter how late I rose to get a sunbed.

This hotel is clean, centrally located and great value for money. We stayed for a week and the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was decent and included every day with a good selection to choose from. The rooms are basic but great for the price and always cleaned immaculately. The pool is also great and the swim up bar is a bonus. The drinks prices are quite reasonable too. I would recommend this hotel to anybody looking for a clean, well located hotel for a budget price!

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.

Great location, right in the middle of all the Legian shops, restaurants and bars.
Room was quite adequate but nothing fancy.
Breakfast was good - but again, nothing fancy. I did not have breakfast included in my rate; that would have been an additional $8/night. Turns out, breakfast only costs Rp50,000 (about $5); so no point in getting the higher nightly rate just for the "free" breakfast!
Hotel price did not include free wi-fi - that is an additional cost.
I was surprised at the mini-bar. A lot of hotels make good money selling these items for a lot of money - this hotel had them reasonably priced.

Bottom line is that the hotel has a very good price for its location. Nice, clean, and decent, but no frills. Would stay there again!

i went on holidays and stayed somewhere else, they fly out on the tues night and my brother and his friend were arriving wed night. so i arrived to check in, and they had no knoweldge of me booking in. they siad they had computer problems.worst thing was they had no rooms available. so here i am in Bali, by myslef and no where to stay. but i had all the approiate documents. the manager came down and apoligiesed and then he paid for me to stay in another hotel for the night. ( he also carried my bags for me and dealt with the staff at the new hotel for me) he also refunded me the money for that night. and then they up graded me to a pool view room, which was great. i could walk out my door, take 2 steps and be in the pool!
they all were very apoligetic and did so much more for me than ask.

so after all the dramas, i could relax. the staff were so friendly and helpful. everytime you walk passed someone they would say : "goodmorning" "goodnight" "how has your day been". they all have very good english and help you with everything.

the rooms were very spacious and clean. the cleaners did such a great job every morning.
it is a small hotel, maybe only 40ish rooms.
cleaning up.
the food was great
THE COCKTAILS, oh the cocktails!!! so yummy!
everything is new and clean.

1 small picky thing though, is staying on the ground floor i could hear/feel the bass quiet softly from the music from the nightlubs down the road. im a very light sleeper, but once i settle in i quiet easilly went to sleep

Room Tip: ground floors are fantiasic, but i could slightly hear the bass from nightlubs down the road. i stay...

We stayed at Sanur for a few days before going back to the Niche, where we'd been in July last year. We arrived on 7/4/13 and were welcomed back like family...most of the staff remembered us and it was lovely returning, we had a different room this time, (the one next to the spa), lovely and quiet especially at breakfast time, spotlessly clean as usual and very comfortable.
We like the location here, where you can walk down the alley and you are straight out on the main street, turn left for the Kuta Memorial, which is very close. It's also an easy walk to the beach, we went up Poppies 2 which is closer and through the new Beachwalk shopping centre at the end. Poppies 1 is easier to walk through though, the lane surface is better and you're not going up and down on the broken paving.
Good shopping, restaurants and bars nearby, also lots of salons for massages and treatments. The laneway men are still annoying, this time we did not buy anything from them and they mostly gave up talking to us. On the other hand the laundry and food outlet people in the same lane are very friendly.
This is a reasonably small hotel, but very clean, close to all the action and if you want to relax at the hotel, the pool is good, beach towels, books and sunblock provided, cocktails are lovely and the restaurant food is good quality. Breakfasts are good too, egg station and a variety of other things daily

Stayed with my partner and another couple last year in march. It was my first time in Bali, location was excellent, always very clean, quiet and all staff were polite and helpful. Breakfasts were OK, restaraunt at the motel wasn't that flash, but close enough to head somewhere else to eat. Very happy with the motel, will be staying there again next month :)
