“A tranquil place in the mid of Seminyak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Arrived in the evening with a pleasant outlook of the place where all the green grows in between, Clio Seminyak is a hidden tranquil place in the mid of the city. It is located just behind cafe Moka at Seminyak and around the Bali Deli. A very convenient place to stay. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The staffs are very helpful and Iluh at the front desk is very efficient too.
Breakfast are great at the cafe Moka. Definetly its a place to stay for those who loves to walk around Seminyak and yet have a quiet place to stay at the end of the day.

located just off the seminyak road, this small hotel is good if you just want a place to stay near the busy area. The design is minimalist, while the price is not too expensive. they have a small garden outside the room which acted like the alleyway. The reception closed at sunset but there is a security guy who can help you with basic things.

stayed 1-3 October 2012 at the LOFT2. it was a great experience staying in a stylish and cozy zen themed apartment in Bali. love it. ask about the rooms? just see their website, they picture it perfectly as the same as the real life. stay with my mom, sister and my 1yo baby. we regret that we didn't stay here from the first day in Bali. they forget to gave us the breakfast at the 1st morning, phoned them and got it for dinner, fresh fruits with coffee and tea. location is good, the surrounded is nice. will come back? definitely YES! i'm in love i guess.

Room Tip: LOFT is the best experience, LOFT2 get the best than others i say.

I booked for 3 nights stay at Clio, but at the very last minute had to add additional night as it turns out we will be arriving earlier than we thought we would be. The staff was very helpful on my sudden request so i was quite happy with the service.

The place was nice and comfortable, it wasn't exactly a five-star hotel but definitely exceeded my expectation. The interior is really good. the bed is comfortable (which is very important for me). The only downside was, i think the hotel was doing a renovation then, so it's a bit noisy. however it didn't affect me that much.

Location-wise is very convenient. It's quite close to my favorite eateries and shops. me and my boyfriend were really happy with Clio and will definitely stay at Clio Bali if we're in Bali.

Dear Reine

Thank you for your positive review, all apologies about the renovation, the good news is that
we have finished yesterday,
We have replaced all the natural stone in the bathrooms with something lighter and brighter,
This has really improved the look and feel of the rooms, sorry for the inconvenience
and thanks for staying at Clio

I found out about Cilo Apartment through Tripadvisor/ Wikitravel. It is a boutique hotel so you need to manage your expectation. The location of the property is not along some major road although it is still walking distance to the main Jalan Raya Basangkasa (maybe 100m). Not an easy place to find. The place is not anyway near to the beach. No pool as well.

Booking was a bit of a hassle. There is no immediate reservation or online credit card payment, payment was by Paypal. When I checked in, there was only a security guard who could not speak English. No information on the wifi and other facilities in the room. It would be great if they could give guests (especially those who checked in after office hours) a simple welcome package with basic information about the property.

I stayed in the Twin Studio room. The room looks chic. But some of the amenities were not practical. For example, the shower was built on a platform at least 40cm- 50cm above the floor. No wall just a shower curtain. No shelf to put your toiletries. Although you could bend down to put beside the kitchenette sink. The room also had this moldy smell.

For the amount of money I paid, I think there are better places to stay around the area.

Dear Reviewer,

We apologize our property was not suitable for you, However your review contains some falsehoods and your photo's are already out of date.

Considering we are behind cafe moka, and have another entrance next to bali deli,
If you can't find these 2 places in Seminyak, then you will indeed have a hard time finding Clio.

We do have a map on the web to assist people getting here, but the bonus of being off a main road, is its nice and quiet at night. We are only about 1km from the beach, and bars such as La plancha, etc, but the good news is we are a short walk from hundreds of shops and restaurants.

We do have an online booking system, since May this year, so maybe you missed out on using it by a few weeks.. sorry for that.

There is also an information board in every room since the last 4 months.. with wifi codes and general information.

We have also doubled our operational staff since you stayed with us, as well as many improvements such as new sinks, extra mirrors, and a water filtration system.

After reading the review I went down to the twin room and found 2 locations where one can place their toiletries, with-out so much as bending over. Firstly the sink bench, secondly the window sill.

Also the shower level is 30cm off the ground level , not 40-50cm as you stated.

Clio is indeed a design apartment, and a lot of traditional features have been morphed into the design, it can be challenging for some but most of our guests appreciate these differences.

Thanks for staying with us, you did have some valid points of things that needed to be changed, but by the time of your review, they had been done already.

Regards.

"Cool" design and lots of space. Feels a bit cheaply done, but then you aren't paying much. Ground level rooms are quite dark. Sheets are polyester and make you sweat! How much it would have improved a night's rest to have decent, cotton sheets!
Also, there is a fan and A/C, but no mosquito nets. If bugs like you, best stay elsewhere b/c the mosquitos harassed me all night long! Room too large and ceiling too high and dark to find them.
In short, I would not go back.

Dear Reviewer,

Our sheets are a cotton blend, we would never expect our guests to sleep in plastic sheets.
we use the hotel standard AVC T-200 as do most other hotels and villas on the island,

We do recall your stay, and your complaints about the mosquito's, and the staff did recommended that you use the mosquito spray supplied in the room,

However you stated that mosquito spray was poison and didn't want to use it.

We are sorry that our large room and high ceilings were not to your liking, maybe the studio would better suit your requirements, it is a little smaller, with a lighter ceiling.

Its a shame that you won't be staying with us again, as about 50% of our bookings are repeat guests.

To make sure that future guests are not annoyed by mosquito's we will be writing instructions in the room, the best way of dealing with them is by spraying the room before you head out to dinner, and keep the door closed at night, I am fully aware how annoying a night of mosquito's is, and how it could influence your thinking on our property.

Thank you for your input.
