“Excellent value for money, staff will go out of their way for you.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW via mobile

I found this place very pleasant to stay. The rooms are quite small, but comfortable. They have used the available space as well as they can. You don't come to Bali to spend all day in your room. The roof top pool is excellent. Their are quite a few construction sites, just like any other major city. the breakfasts available are limited, but what they have, is done very well. I ordered food on the roof, along with Icy cold beers, and im glad I did, it was very nice. Some of the employees English can be slightly broken, they try and understand and speak English as much as they can, which I really appreciate,as I came to Bali speaking no indonisian.

Overall, I was very pleased with my stay, and hopefully I do return in the near future.

The hotel is located in Kuta so in middle of all the action going around. The room was just ok. The breakfast was good. The staffs were nice and friendly. the bathrooms could be maintained better. the hotel has a beer garden and live music in the evening. Initially we weren't keen to join but was surprised that the music was good and we had a lovely time there.

I was delighted with the arrangement they had for me after knowing it's my honeymoon. They upgraded and added extra roses and fruits in the room. Room was spacious and clean, aircon cold enough, bed and pillow were so soft and comfortable, feeling refresh every morning! People are friendly and helpful! They even help me get my overnight snacks I bought from outside stall heated up and sent it back to room! Wonderful service! This is my second trip to J boutique and I will sure be back again!

This property is small and cute when you first arrive. We had booked an Executive Room to find it was smaller than your average bedroom and I am not convinced I was given an Executive Room which needed painting. Bathroom very tired with cracked tiles, the air con was not cold, the water was always just luke warm, no hairdryer. There was no dvd player just a tv and I requested a dvd player, if I could hire one and was told 'no', just 'no' with no explanation. The pool area has no service and you can not request a drink so you couldn't spend more money with them even if you wanted, no shade so expect to get burnt and not alot of greenery to make this roof top area inviting. The music is on a loop so if you spend more than a few songs, then you find yourself listening to the same music. The fact that it is roof top, expect to look at the construction and other roof tops which are not appealing. It was a shame that I found myself wanting to go out from the hotel to relax as my room did not invite me to stay and I felt the urge to visit the pools of other hotels to relax. The breakfast buffet range is average but the food in the restaurant is really nice. The service and people were nice and accommodating. The spa and beauty salon inside the hotel is delightful with great service.

Room Tip: I would question the type of room as an Executive in Australia is not an Executive in Bali.

Dear Sandra F,

We have received details of your comments. We sincerely apologize for your unpleasant experience during your stay with us. We have checked the room that you used to stay, and through this forum we are to confirm that we did not find any crack tiles in our bathroom. The Air Conditioner in your room was also work just fine, it indeed may take around 8-10 minutes to run fully as normal hotel's operations we're using key tag to power it on. We will definitely be thankful for your reminder, we will check again the quality of our hot water, as standard expected it should be 40C-45C hot water flows in your room.

We have noted on your special request of Hair Dryer as this item is on loan basis, we did not provide it in the room though. We can provide it if you request through our staff free of charge. In regards to the DVD player, it is basically pre-setup amenity for Deluxe Room and Suite. We do not provide DVD player for Superior and Executive Room. We're very sorry if our staff was not fully accommodating your request. We should be able to have this facility on rent basis indeed.

Our pool is an open roof concept, though we have some shades (although it is not a lot) as probably this did not meet of what you expected. However we take note on your comment for our next renovation improvement on our roof top area. We have put some greenery spots in the Roof Top area but due to land limit, we can not put plenty of greenery areas. We have taken some improvement on music selections and making sure the staff rotation is in place. We have service open from 11am to 7pm at SKYPool area if you come by at that time, there must be staff around to assist you with some food and drinks.

Once again many thanks for your comments and feedback, we learnt a lot from this review for our close monitor review in our operations for continuously improving to excel.

We are looking forward to have you hear with here with us again in the future and to have the opportunity of showing you our improved services.

Yours sincerely,

The Management

Lobby is deceiving, it looks imposing but that's where it ends. Room very out dated and in need of up dating. Furniture chipped and not comfortable. We were on 3rd floor but traffic and bar noise kept us awake. Were charged $80 AUD per night but you can get it for $40 to $45 if you book on line. Brochure quoted free airport transfers (it's just around the corner) but were told the brochure was out of date (it certainly was!!!) and asked for payment. Jacuzzi not functioning. Only redeeming feature was breakfast.

Dear Patrice H,

We are very sorry to learn that you had not had pleasant experience during your stay with us. Our room rates are fluctuating depending on seasons and promotions so it may vary from day to day. We learn that when you purchase the package for room was actually during the high season period, hence the rate was a bit on high side.

We offers free Airport transfer for any guests booking direct with us either via our online website or direct contact to our reservation. Yes, we quoted free of charge in our brochure as this service is free of charge if you book direct with us.

Unfortunately our Jacuzzi has leak issue and we're currently doing a preventive maintenance to this facility. We apologize for this inconveniences.

We understood that our hotel may not be perfect to every travelers staying with us, however we are doing our utmost to ensure we give our best quality of product and services to all our guests. Your feedback is very valuable to our improvement and we strive to continuously excel.

We hope someday we would be able to welcoming you back again with improved services and facilities.

This hotel whilst not rated 5 star give you most of the conveniences afforded to a 5 star hotel a a fraction of the cost. This hotel is one of the older ones but the service is equally as good. The rooms are large and have DVD player and flat screen TV, choice of beds. The money I saved staying means that I can come back again next month.

Room Tip: Stay away from the top floor as no insulation means they get very hot.

The staff were lovely, and very accommodating. The bed itself was nice, and the aircon was oh so very welcome after a long hot day of walking. The only 2 drawbacks of the hotel was our suite had absolutely no hot water, not one warm shower our entire stay, and the food was not the caliber I thought for the prices we paid, but thankfully, lots of eating places within walking distance that have outstanding food!
My wife tried the spa there and thought it was nice.
