Favehotel is a beautiful and clean place with modern rooms, polite staff and good facilities.
The rooms are very nice, but make sure to ask for a room with POOLview! I stayed here twice, and the rooms at the pool side are great: very quiet with a beautiful view of the garden and ricefields. The pools on the other side are noisy (cars) and you look at the street and staight into other people's rooms. A standard room was perfect for 1 person, but according to me, a little bit too small for 2... .
The pool area is the best part of the hotel: big enough for a good swim, perfect for sunbathing AND having one (or more...) of their lovely cocktails.
Breakfast was fine: very Asian indeed, but we are in Bali after all! I don't like rice or curry for breakfast, but every morning there was some "Western" food as well: french toast or pancakes, white or brown toast, fresh fruit, and lovely homemade jams. But be there at least an hour before they close as they don't refill a lot.
I tried dinner a couple of times, but it was quite pricy and the portions weren't really big. There are way too many good restaurants within walking distance, so I recommend going elsewhere.
The best thing about the hotel is the spa. It's not as cheap as on the streets, but the in-room massages are the best I ever had!!! The package with the facial + 1hr Balinese massage was amazing!!! The pedicure was horrible though, so stick with massage ;)!
The staff was helpful but their English was pretty bad. I went to ask for some information about renting a car twice, but none of the staff could understand me, so I had to book a car online.
The location was ok: there are some small supermarkets next to the hotel (one is open 24/7), and a couple of restaurants too. The main streets of Seminyak with all the shops and restaurants are a 20'-30' walk, or you can cab it. I walked to the beach, but it's about 45', so I preferred the pool on my 2nd day :-).
But I definetely recommend this place for it's price!!!
