The location is a little offside. Its a good 10 minutes walk to reach Kuta central area. Its better to take a hotel near kuta or discovery mall. But still beach along Holiday inn is only 5 minutes away. So not that bad either. Rooms are OK. But make special request for rooms facing the road. They will make it if such rooms are available. Breakfast was typical with virtually no veg options. But we got fried rice on special request.

Room Tip: ask for Road facing rooms or you will get that choking feeling.

Let me start by saying this is my 13th trip to Bali in the last 5 years. I have stayed in hotels and villas in Kuta/Legian/Seminyak - The reviews that I do tend to take into account the cost paid for the accommodation and how the hotel measures up based on realistic expectations for the price paid. I stayed in an "executive room" and paid around $70 a night, for nine days. I think the standard rooms go for about $55-$60 - The main difference from what I asked while at the hotel is the executive is slightly larger and window faces the street (as opposed to brick wall).

Arrived at 11.30pm and check in process seamless (they requested 300,000 Rupiah as deposit for minibar, which I had as I changed $50 at airport) - welcome drink was refreshing. Elevator to the third floor (room 368), corridors etc a bit dated however room itself was very clean and bed super comfy with nice sheets. The room was cleaned efficiently each day, regardless of when I decided to venture out. Bathroom is quite spacious with good condition tiling (no bath, but nice big shower), double vanity and personal care provided....shower cap, razor, toothbrush set, cotton ear buds, shampoo. Downside for me about room is that none have a balcony (as most do in Bali), this was a little bit annoying being a smoker as I had to either go down two flights of stairs to front of hotel, or up three flights to outdoor pool for a smoke when I was chilling in room. Missed not chilling on balcony with a drink as have done before in other accommodation.

Food was really good - the restaurant/beer garden menu is the same as room service and is available 24 hrs., priced well, most mains around 60-70 k Rupiah

Location is at the south end of the street that Waterbom Park is on. Nice and close to Febri's spa, one of my favourite places for massage ect.

The staff make the stay easy and are always polite and take the time to say hello ( quite common in Bali hotels though)

Roof top pool is super relaxing and water quality very good (and at a nice, refreshing temperature) - Sunset time gives you a glimpse over beach.

Downside overall for me was breakfast. Hotel has a lot of Japanese guests and as such consists of Asian food such as noodles, rice, chicken porridge (looked like glue). They did have egg station, two types of fresh fruit, basic croissant's, juice and cereal etc.....BUT NO BACON !!

Dear Travelnut010,

We have read your recent review on tripadvisor and truly appreciate your details experience shared during your stay with us.

On behalf of the Management, we apologize on some lacking on your room expectations knowing that you are smoker and we do not have room balcony to get a refresh air flowing through circulation in your room.

We have also taken note on your breakfast variety especially The Bacon. We have set this as 'on request' basis to be served during breakfast. We have quite variable market mixed that include Asian as well. We do the breakfast varieties based on majority of guest staying on the certain period of stay. Unfortunately during your stay was the heavy seasons of our Japanese, Malaysian and Singaporean in house, so breakfast variety was set according to the asian style varieties. We sincerely apologize on this issue.

We certainly look forward to welcoming you again sometimes in the future to become our regular customers. Should there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable, would be happy to assist you with it.

Yours sincerely,

The Management

Stayed here 25-27 APR 2013
Hotel room were bit old but still its good value for money, you only pay around USD 50 a night for a 3+ star boutique hotel in south Kuta area.
They only have shower no bath tub but the bathroom size isnt small.
Hotel lobby not too big but gives you warm cozy feeling inside.
Breakfast was simple but tasty and nice.
Pool is at the 4th floor, quite a hassle to get there , its not too big but good enough to have a swim.
Overall I will recommend my friends / clients to stay here if they have tight budget but would like to stay in Kuta area.
Mind you, its about 15-20 mins walking to the Discovery Mall though.

This is a very nice hotel, and the staff is brilliant.
The location is good if you want to be close to the airport, but it is quite far from the bars and pubs on Legian street.
The restaurant is really nice and the food is great. I loved the music on the terrace and the shisha as well. The prices are ok as well.
The breakfast doesn't offer many choices but it is ok.
I didn't try the pool as I only stayed for one night. The room is very nice, cosy and clean.

I stayed one night more or less in transit from Denpasar to sorong. For this it's perfect. Really close to the airport. Very friendly staff who collect and drop off. Arranged a box breakfast for me too as my flight was really early. Good food if you are too tired to look for it. Lovely spa - just what I needed to start my holiday. Just very noisy so try get away from the stair well - guests ma. Noise ll night coming and going to flights.

Room Tip: Book directly not through an agent outside of indonesia

Enjoyed my Nyepi Day at this hotel, stayed here for 3D2N, and all is good. I've got connecting room, room was very nice, clean, and i love the decoration. Bed and bathroom was have no problems.
I do love their swimming pool in rooftop, this facilities is excellent value for us, because we can see what really happened when Nyepi from rooftop, the road was empty and silent, there was no flight or anything coming.
Their breakfast was great! i love their menu.
Quite strange, that the mobile network when i was in rooms was not good, appeared SOS.. it was happened to my roomy as well. They provide wifi connection, but it was bad also. The staff was have no idea, hence we hope they will check this issue and can explain well to guest.

Dear Amelup,

Thank you so much for staying with us during NYEPI Day (The Silent Day). We have noted your positive feedback about our room and our outdoor SKYPool.

Following your concern over the signal of cellphone network, We had indeed issues back then with the BTS operators, which was rarely happened, but it was only temporary as it was resume back to normal afterwards.

In regards to the WiFi internet, we use Internet bandwidth of 2Mbps ratio 1:1 in our hotel, this should covers the needs for our guests, but we apologize that you have had bad experience to get the connection back then and the staff was unable to assist. We are really sorry this, as limited staff was in charge during Nyepi Day, especially our IT person is Balinese and he was not at the hotel to assist you at that time.

We are happy to re-invite you again to come and stay with us, and will surely do our best to make improvements on our services.

Yours sincerely,

The Management
