“Good service, breakfast but not location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

They have airport pick up which is great if you first time in Indonesia and taxi drives jumping on u as soon as u go out.
Friendly stuff. Breakfast was good. Hotel is not new you can see it but therefore its not so expansive. Internet was a problem and location is not the best. Along the road on Kuta - very busy. But close to small food, shop and ATM and same street as all restorants and shops. A bit far to the beach.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

The hotel was beautifully designed and really attractive. The staff were super friendly and smiled every time they saw us. They asked us if we wanted our room cleaned even when we didn't have the "please clean room sign" on our door handle. The meals were a bit small (but still tasty) compared to the rest of Kuta's restaurants, but I expected this because it was one of the finer dining restaurants. Breakfast seemed to be the same every day with minor differences, which wasn't a problem for us because we missed it 5 out of 8 days (due to our late nights because EVERYTHING is open late). The rooms were as expected but the bathroom was a bit small for my liking. Locality wise it was a bit far, closer to the edge of Kuta, this made getting too and from Kuta central and Legian beach about a 20 minute walk if you were strolling or a 4 minute taxi ride (or 10 minutes with hectic traffic) for about 15,000 rupiah maximum depending on the taxi driver (about one dollar 50 cents or something similar). The rooftop pool was as I expected and the spa was amazing, we felt so relaxed afterwards. All round it was well worth it, however next time I visit Kuta I will probably go to a hotel located closer to the main area so at night time the hotel is walking distance instead of taking a taxi.

We have gone to Bali in May 2012 and we choose J Boutique Hotel for our accommodation. It's easy for us to walk from Hotel to Tuban for restaurant or shopping. The rooms is small but clean and well decorated. The hotel quite close to the airport, it's very convenient for business traveler. However, breakfast is poor, not many dishes for you can choose, especially if you don't eat beef and pork as vegetarian. Besides, the beach near the hotel isn't beautiful, you should go further beach, Kuta Beach, it's greater!

We stayed at j boutique in Feb 2012.
Rooms were quite small and basic.
the location is close to the airport but the beach is 15 minutes walk away.
there are plenty of restuarents,shopping malls and basically everything near by.
reception staff were friendly and helpful.
breakfast buffet was Ok and the same menu everyday.
the hotel was included in the bali tour promotion package of air garuda,that's how we ended up being there.

We have just speak eight days at the J. Boutique Hotel and found the hotel very accommodating.
The room was very clean a little small, the bed was a king size good mattrass, the bathroom was a bit dark but we coped. The room was serviced thoroughly every day and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were all fantastic. Breakfast was very good however the food was a little bit the same every day. Our overall experience was fantastic in a good location not too close to Kuta but not too far away, would definately stay there again.

We stayed at the J-Boutique hotel for 3 nights in February. It is a pretty standard hotel with no standout features. Among relatively good points, rooms are clean and hotel has a nice bar. However the much advertised pool was a big disappointment. Also, location wise its around 15-20 minutes away from the main area of Kuta.

Overall I felt hotel was bit overpriced for its features and facilities. If you are staying in Kuta you can probably get a hotel at similar price near the beach which is the main party location. If you are looking for a relatively secluded place to stay then you should not select Kuta anyways.

This hotel is very chic and modern. The theme colour seems to be black and white. The room is beautifully decorated and clean, however the bathroom is a little small. There is no additional power point for us to charge our gadgets so we have to use the power point in the bathroom to do so.

Location wise is at the end of Jln Kartika. Just walk towards the left as you exit the hotel and you will find many shoppings, resorts and restaurants. The Discovery Mall is about 10 minutes walk away and to walk to the other end of the road where Matahari Mall, Poppies Lane and other shops are located is 30 minutes from the hotel. Kuta beach is a short walk away and can be accessed via any of the resorts nearby.

A 5 minutes walk away is Carla Massage and Spa which we went everyday as their prices are very reasonable e.g. 55,000 Rp for 1 hour Reflexology. There are a few other Spa nearby e.g. Mango Spa but we didn't try.

The buffet breakfast choices is very limited and is almost the same everyday.

The hotel has a very nice roof top pool and jacuzzi.

Staffs are generally friendly and helpful. They were very prompt when we asked them to check out the room's safe box as it was faulty.

Overall, this is a good hotel at a good location.
