“Peace, quiet and friendship”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2009

I have been a regular traveller to Bali for 15 or 16 years and have tried out a wide variety of mid-range accommodation all over the island. For me Tiing Gading with its beautiful, human-scale garden, small pool and excellent Dutch/Javanese cooking is a perfect refuge both from the crazy city I live in(Bangkok) and the persistent touts and guides that pester you in the streets of Ubud and elsewhere in Bali.
Not only does it offer peace and quiet and spotlessly, clean, well-serviced rooms but Allan and Siti, the husband and wife who run it, offer the human, personal touch that is often lacking in hotels in the same price bracket. In other places the staff while often friendly are really interested in selling you tours, souvenirs and entertainment from which they take their commission. At Tiing Gading you will get informed, practical and impartial advice from 2 people who have lived there for many years and know Ubud and its many attractions very well.
Of course Tiing gading will not suit every one's taste - it does not boast fitnesss centres, luxurious rooms with Tv's, internet connections etc - but it is an ideal retreat for those of us who value peace and quiet amid beautiful surroundings. Please go and judge for yourselves!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2009

We spent 5 night at Tiing Gading Bungalows in May 2009. Our overall experience was good, although it depends what you are looking for. Tiing Gading is a boutique hotel about 2km away from Ubud main market. It is very quiet, bungalows are nicely decorated. It is the place to go if you look for a nice place off the beaten path. Service is very good and diligent, and there are nice freebees like free hot tea (very pleasant to sip tea at night from your terrace), and free ride to downtown upon request. The restaurant makes very good food, but is also very quiet (we were the only guests most nights).

The rooms are OK. Bedding is very stiff, which we don't like. Hot water is not a given. Rule number 3 on the instruction sheet talks about what to do in case hot water being not available. It is a hint! We ended up having hot water in one room, and warm water in the other one. There are some bugs (ants, bees, mosquitoes), but no wonder because the rooms are not hermetically closed.

Breakfast, which is included in the room, is very good. There is a good choice of menus, quantities are large.
