“It's OK for a few days”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We stayed in Tegal Sari for 5 nights - first 3 in a villa with a private pool, which was really great. The only fault that the electricity system cannot cope with the pool-AC-microwave load and goes off. Internet is desperately slow, even in villas. The so-called deluxe rooms where we spent 2 nights are far from luxurious but still OK, apart from the ants everywhere. The public pool is nice but only when there are no kids around. The restaurant of the hotel offers nice food at reasonable prices, still, my husband got Bali belly after the second meal (pork with chili). We hired a car from the hotel for a day out - the driver used every opportunity to drag us into various shopping traps. His English wasn't very good, many times we didn't understand what he said. It seems the entire personnel is trained to be an advertisement board - whatever you ask the answer is how much it costs at Tegal Sari. There are 35 people working for the 30 rooms, they all do everything, from cleaning to driving guests around - therefore our driver was quite exhausted by the afternoon (after a morning of cleaning, I guess) and his driving became very uncertain. All in all: if you are used to budget accommodation, go for it, otherwise there are better choices around or go for the villa. Book well in advance, however they charge the full amount to your card immediately upon booking, even if it is a year in advance. When I asked the reason they just laughed. It seems they become abit spoilt by their Tripadvisor success....

Room Tip: Go for the villa with private pool

Not a bad idea if you would like to stay away from those noisy kuta area. You can explore the paddy fields around the ubud area. The room is a bit old but if you don't mind, it is still larger than what you could expect.

We stayed there two nights in November and we had more than a nice experience. The rooms are really nice and clean and the service is excellent. Free transport in Ubud. You really can´t get better! Strong recommendations! Would stay there again definitely. :-)

Excellent service from the staff, including room, van to the ubud market or any place within 2km approximately is free of charge. The restaurant remain excellent in food quality, especially Balinese dishes. The paddies are harvested or being harvested now hence some paddies are burned... Will come maybe October next time to enjoy a nice green view. Excellent location too.

Tegah sari is the cheapest place i have stayed so far & extremely good. Me & my Husband with 2 of our friend was staying here for 2 night. I have to say that the service they provide is really more than the value itself. The location are surrounding by the rice fields. The breakfast is perfect, we miss the food there.

Tegah sari is located near to Monkey forest where you can found a lot of great restaurant & places to buy souvenir. Of cause Tegah sari is provide transport the the city area & you probably can get some advise from the staff if you don't have any idea where to go or eat.

Bebek bengil , Babi ibu oka , Cafe warung just nearby by walking distance.

Highly recommend to all of you & would definitely return to the place again.

Room Tip: Please make a reservation in advance at least half a year or more. I'm make a booking 1/2 years...

We stayed for 3 lovely nights in this hotel, we wanted to book for 11 but unfortunately they were booked out. The room was very spacious, very comfortable bed and large bathroom with a great walk-in rain shower. Only 1 minor issue with the bathroom and that was having to climb into the bath to close the blinds when there were workers in the paddy fields, but not really problem. Breakfast was not included but at 65,000 rupiah (about $AU6) who cares. Different menu choices which was good. Shuttle bus to take you wherever you want in the central Ubud area and pick you up which was brilliant. Fantastic patio which looked over the rice paddy, only improvement here would be more comfortable outdoor furniture but that seems to be the norm in most hotels, we always appreciate our comfy chairs when we return home! A little bit of noise one evening with the new villas still being built but not excessive so didn't really bother us. Would be more than happy to return to Tegal Sari.
