“Standard hotel in a small lane at Sanur”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Stayed two nights at this hotel but not very happy. The hotel itself is located at Jalan Cemara Beach (a small road into Cemara Beach at Sanur). It is quiet because the hotel is not in the main road. The room size is adequate, the problem is the door which has gap between the wall which makes insects can come into the room especially at night. This hotel does not have lift,so it is not really friendly for those who need special assistance. No lobby area, the reception is just a desk. The dining are is just in front the seat and it is opened to the road. The food is fine and they serve mostly Japanese food. The worst thing about this hotel is the bathroom. The water power is a big trouble. They only provide two small soap bar. There is a fridge inside the room, a small flat screen TV with limited channel. They do provide free usage of bicycles for guests but only two is in good condition. I still prefer to rent the bicycle from outside with a small fee. Overall,this is a hotel is not suitable for family with children as the space is very limited. Suitable for limited budget as the price is average in Bali standard.

Room Tip: Choose a room at upper floor to avoid the insects from the ground. For more privacy, choose the room...

At the end of a 3 week stay in Indonesia where the accommodations have been extremely variable, Abian Kokoro gave us such a welcome and thorough briefing with wonderful, friendly staff. This place is really lovely - such a surprise for the price! Staff are so helpful, rooms are small but very clean and modern. The sushi place is a real bonus too! And only 5 mins to the beach. Would highly recommend this place and will for sure stay there again.
Just one tip for the staff: please be aware that everyone does not want to be woken at 6.30am when the staff start arriving, cleaning and chatting!!! Luckily we needed an early start but this was a little too early!

Room Tip: Try and get 2nd or 3rd floor and away from stairwell as others suggested. We put this on our booking...

I would definitely stay at Abian Kokoro if I visit Sanur again! The rooms are supermodern, nicely decorated and the bathroom was of high standard. Our room was one of the cheapest we've booked in Bali and definitely the nicest! The hotel is located off the main road (but you have to walk 15 min to get to most of the restaurants) and a 5 min walk to the beach. Guests can rent bikes free of charge at the hotel. The breakfast was very good, where you could choose either sashimi from the hotel restaurant or from several western breakfast alternatives. The staff was very friendly, knew English quite well and did our laundry in less than a day. We had a great stay!

So glad to have found this place. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable and well appointed and the rate includes a choice of breakfasts.
We found the staff to be truly delightful. Our check-in was the fastest and most efficient I have experienced anywhere in Indonesia. They were helpful but not intrusive.
We will return here for sure. Great value for the price and highly recommended.

Room Tip: Perhaps ask for one away from the stairs so the security lights don't bother you at night.

"Kokoro" means heart in Japaness language and this name is very suitable for this small hotel. The people are very friendly and helpfull what really compensate a little luck of comfort. Nothing serious but somethimes it is not possible to open wooden wardrobe or balcony door... Or paltry leak in a bathroom... But does it mean when location is perfect, cleanness is saticfactory and the stuff smile warmly every time meet you? More positive: lavish breakfast on your choice and good Japanesse restaurant. Also there are many different places for dinning around. So if you are not very fastidious and want to spend most of your time on the beach you will enjoy your stay in Abian Kokoro.

Around 15 minutes drive from the Airport.Not much area for car park very limited. 5 minutes walk to the beach.Big room , still enough space for additional mattress or extra bed if needed - provide with electric kettle + coffee + tea and toiletries. Breakfast served with Japanese style menu.

Room Tip: Nice room is in the first floor. 2nd floor should use stairs.
