“Ulun Ubud is a "could have been"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Ulun Ubud is beautifully located. The staff is so helpful. The view from the suite is beautiful but the owner has totally let gone of maintenance. The whole place could have been done up so beautifully given that's is location is amazing. I booked myself in for 6 nights but cut short the stay by 4 nights because the hotel had a ghost look. Too quiet n just too forlorn ... The saving grace: the helpful staff n away from the crazy bustle

my husband and I loved this place. The location is above the river and facing a wall of green vegetation. Which ttires to take it back. Yes there is faded grandeur feel to the place but it was magical. Our room was clean, the bed comfortable. If you want sterile modernity this Is not the p,ace. But if you want charm and setting this place is a find. Staff were great and they shuttled us to the Minami restaurant which was truly memorable.

This hotel has so much potential. Really charming architecture, lovely bungalows hugging the hill. Beautiful sculpture that has really grown into its surroundings - and the views are stunning.
The staff are really friendly and most obliging and the shuttle bus is very convenient if you want the action of Ubud.
However, this hotel needs major work. The stairs are really steep and falling apart, the treads are of different heights making them quite dangerous to negotiate. Our first room, The Honeymoon Suite was horrible - the toilet was blocked, the curtains were hanging off the rails, the blinds were broken, it smelt, the mirror was hard to see into because of the mould.
Our second room was much better, love the sculptural detail in the architecture, and the view from the balcony was just lovely. However the bathroom was very ordinary, no proper shower, cracked tiles, worn smelly towels.
But, you know what, I would go back (if it were cheaper, we still paid the honeymoon rate), the effort that has gone into the sculpture here is so good, I just love the 'old' feel of it all.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the honeymoon suite

Dirty room. Nasty fridge. Bed wasn't clean. Food terrible. We only stayed one night looking for another place to stay. It wasn't even 20 USD worth. We will never ever be back! Really bad bad place that desperately needs a new management and face lift.

Perched on a hill side, the view is magnificent with lots of stone carvings and art work everywhere. It's quiet, and the staff was helpful and friendly. The trouble starts with the rooms. While large and cleaned well by the staff, the owner does not seem to understand taking care of the rooms. Our first room close to the office had mold on the wall, and a smell, with very basic bathroom with only cold water in the sink.
We moved to a lower room (120 steps down by the pool), with a nice bed & furniture, but the A/C dripped on the floor, and a light was dangling by the cord from ceiling. The mini-blinds in the shower were rusty. The towels were thin and worn, and they had very few to spare. The paint was really needing a repaint. Mold on the outside really made it look bad. Also No TV, not that we missed it. The room had big glass doors out on the valley below, and a huge patio.

This is a wonderful place, but the owner is only interested in his art. We met him while searching around the place and he showed us a beautiful tables and other artwork in a separate area from the rooms. While in better shape, it was still in need of work.

If you can stand the bad points, it's a beautiful place. It needs a lot of love and care in its current state.

Room Tip: If you can do the steps, check out a lower room. Ask to look at the room before moving your bags, an...

I am rather bewildered having read the negative reviews posted on here. It seems like those travelers sought a sterile and most boring environment. Ulun Ubud is stunning. The traditional Balinese architecture and intricate wood and stone carvings it boasts are most impressive and outweigh the so called run down rooms which are more than sufficient. The serene environment is the perfect getaway and the views from the balcony are picturesque. The hotels best feature however is the staff who promptly organised our trip to Mt Batur (highly recommended), our cooking class, dropped us of at any location required and one even gave us coffee home made by his Grandmother. Ulun Ubud is what Ubud is about and we would return in a heartbeat.
