“Budget Hotel for the Yuppies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

If you plan to spend some time vacationing at Bali on a budget with some of your best friends, this is the hotel of your choice. Located in a busy street where all the hip club are. If you're a queer, next to the hotel is a famous hip queer club. On weekends the drag queen are hanging out in front of the club to blow you a kiss or two.

The hotel itself is pretty new. Ask for the room in the building behind if you want to spend the night peacefully. If you plan to sleep when you are dead, then definitely choose room in the front building, where you will always checking the street for any inspiring view of the night life.

The cheapest room is quite large for a budget hotel. The design made it comfortable. Bed is acceptable, clean and comfortable. Design is eco green. With plasma TV and free wifi. No amenities, no dedicated hairdryer and no bath tub. But the linen and towel will always be changed daily if you ask to (put the towels on the floor)

The most important is, room charge included breakfast, a luxury for a budget hotel. Breakfast pretty varied, international and local cuisines with good quality. No cereal and pancake but the omelet is very good.

Swimming pool is small but located in the right place so you can show off your bikini and hot body to the gorgeous guy hanging out at the lounge nearby. If you prefer a private swim of course this is not your ideal swimming pool setting.

This hotel is hip, modern and young spirited. So it suits those who are young spirited.

I knew people had complained about loud music, so I specifically requested a room that would be facing AWAY from the music. I received this request but the music was still loud. On a Saturday night the music was still going until 4am.

Pros: Good beds and linens (5* quality), but the pillows were NOT down
Friendly staff
Good hot water shower
Decent location

Cons: Slow Internet
Tour groups checking in late at night overworking the minimal night staff

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room and bring ear plugs.

Thank you for staying with us and sharing your feedback. Happy to hear that you like the hotel and enjoyed our staff as that is our motto to be fun, fresh and friendly. It is true that you can't always avoid the loud music, considering the location in Seminyak, just a short stroll to the most popular bars and clubs. However it can be reduced by requesting the tower in the back, Tower A. Our guests who book directly on our favehotel website get first priority in that tower as they have the option to mention it at the time of booking instead of at check in. As for internet, the speed is 2Mbps which is quite fast for Indonesia, but we are still working on the bandwith management to make it faster

Fave Hotel Seminyak, has won the prize when it comes to the hotel as a backer packer looking for. This newly opened place located about 10 minutes from the beach is just fantastic, to briefly summarize it. And if you enjoy good food, "San Michael Light (formerly San Miguel light), wonderfully friendly and funny people who work here, this is the place you are ready to try. Do not hesitate, You will not be disappointed. Trust me.. A week here, brightened my life, gave me a 24 hour smile and lifelong friends. Just Great!

The hotel and facilities were all clean (brand new) and the staff were all helpful and friendly.

The Fave hotel was chosen due to its price and location. Its location is both an advantage and a disadvantage. It was close to everything you could need and located just off the main road to Kuta so navigation is a pinch however it is located near the clubs. As other reviewers have noted this does mean you are able to hear the music from some rooms. I'm a heavy sleeper so was unaffected but it was definitely audible.

The service was great, fast check in and very helpful staff made the stay very pleasant. Due to an extended trip I was about 2 hours late to checkout however staff were understanding and did not seem to mind despite no notice being given.

The Fave hotel is decent, affordable accommodation in the heart of Seminyak.

We booked a 2 night superior room stay frm 21-23 jan. When we checked in. We were given a standard room by mistake. Ok, room changed upon request. But they only have a room with 2 single beds. Nw i have to sleep alone without my wife or rather next to my wife..... Their reason. We didnt say... They promised to give us another room next day. Waited till 3 pm and we got a room full of cigarette Smell. Wife was pissed but we just put up with it. Upon checkout we were charge with some locals call that we tried calling but cant get through. Asked for waiver and got it. Althought its jus $3 we cant take the fact that we were charged for something that didnt worked. Dirty plates along corridor frm 3pm till next day 11 am. Wonder what happened? They dont have a hair drier!!!

Loved the hotel - perfect location in Seminyak - in the heart of shopping, restaurants, and close to the beach. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful when I checked in.
Rooms were a bit small but was well-designed. Liked the window that connects the bathroom to the room. Free wifi and a good selection of channels on tv was a plus.
Unfortunately, it was raining when I stayed so I didn't get to use the pool area but it was well-designed also. Overall, the hotel had a great boutique feel and I'd definitely come back.
