“Good and Right place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

I booked the room on the second floor, and have rice field view, the sun rises perfectly on left side and set on the right, giving a nice side light over the view, the reception are helpful. The bathroom tile was looking bad but nothing to worry about it, the provided towel didnt work pretty well absorbing water, so ladies should bring your own towel or hairdryer. The breakfast is rated 1-5 from bad to good, I give rate 2. You can satisfy your appetite in Bebek Bengil Restaurant nearby, and good place to hang out and relax at House Restaurant with great garden decoration just across the street.

Room Tip: Choose the room that is on the front of the entrance with the rice field view, really relax your eye...

We stayed in a deluxe room upstairs for 4 night, the room was clean and the bed comfortable, the staff were very friendly and were always gardening or sweeping but never intrusive.
The pool was good to cool off after a day out in Ubud. The breakfast was basic and made fresh.

If you stay in I ubud, stay on hanuman street. It is very central and quiet. It is truly Balinese. It is a residential street and every house has its own temple at its entrance. All the hotels are on alleys that lead into the fields. Chose a room with a balcony, the view is staggering. Hot tea in a flask is delivered each morning at 6 am. Dawn. Life starts here at dawn and ends at about 10 pm. You cannot sleep longer, the wild life wakes you up.
The staff are young, silent and very helpful. The rooms, huge but basic. No TV, but free wifi.

Places not to stay, unless you are hair braded hippie, is monkey forest road. Over exploited, with cheap hippie, new age junk. The beautiful 5 and 6 star hotels are in a beautiful hillside location, miles out. You will need a taxi every time you go in or out.

It is late November, and the monsoon is late. By 9.30 am it is in the high 30s it will stay that hot until around 7 pm. The humidity is also 100%. It is too hot to do much during the day.

There is classical dance somewhere every night, 80,000 rupiah. Dinner on average, 50,000 rupiah. The notes are very confusing and you have to watch money changers very carefully. They will rip you off if they can.

Ubud, is a lovely and very interesting destination, well worth a visit. You do not need to spend a fortune on accommodation. The kunang kunang is a brilliant value and perfectly located. I am in a standard room with balcony. The more expensive rooms on the front, look directly into the padi fields, the rest over the lovely pool. I am on the second floor and overlook it all and have the Swifts and swallows darting around me as I drink my dawn tea !
A happy traveller.

Room Tip: Ask for ground floor front for expensive rooms overlooking the padi fields. Standard rooms ask for o...

We have just stayed for two nights a Kunang Kunang and enjoyed it very much. It is well located on Hanaman St with easy access to attractions, restaurants and spiritual activities, yet you are well away from the hustle and bustle of Monkey Forest Road.. The guesthouse overlooks some rice-fields, making a very pleasant view, with ducks grassing in the fields. There is a nice swimming pool and the breakfasts are OK but nothing to write home about.The rooms are very clean and well looked after but as with many Bali guesthouses the bathrooms are showing their age, but functional. Staff are helpful and pleasant and we will consider staying here again when we return to Ubud.

Room Tip: Try for Rooms 8, 9 or 10.

The location of Kunang Kunang is great. Having said that - there was very little else about the place that warrants a stay. Service is seriously lax, where you need to haul the receptionist out of the staff room, where he is more interested in watching TV than helping you check out. Banana jaffles for breakfast with coffee made from ground coffee that has not been filtered is not my idea of a breakfast. Hve stayed in better in Ubud.

Room Tip: The rice paddies do cause a certain amount of insects in rooms. However cockroaches are unaccepatble...

lovely guesthouse, very clean, good location (20 min walk to central Ubud), very quiet and the view from our little outdoor area was wonderful of the rice padi and neighbouring houses. great for what we paid (booked through agoda).
