“Pleasant stay and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

For the price, this is a very good choice in Seminyak. The staff are friendly and efficient, the location is central and the rooms clean. Even though it is a fairly new hotel, the rooms are showing signs of wear and tear, particularly in the bathrooms. The rooms are very small - fine for a couple of nights, but too small for a week or more. A bar fridge and opening windows would really add to the comfort. Breakfast, while limited in choice, was fresh and plentiful. As others have mentioned, the constant doof doof from the bars can be annoying at 3am, and we were at the back of the rear tower.

Dear Daveywill,

Your feedback has been beneficial for us and thank you for sharing it at Tripadvisor.
All favehotels room does not provide a fridge, which is as part of a select service hotel for customers who are looking for a great deal accommodation in the great location. However, our Junior Suite and Executive Suite rooms do provide fridge, which you could book the next time you may stay with us to enjoy this facility. We also do provide other facilities such as hairdryer, iron/ iron board, which are actually available on request.
In addition to our buffet breakfast, we also provide a la carte breakfast menu with affordable price. Feel free to ask to one of our waiter or waitress. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.
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 and 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.
Your next visit is always awaited by our team and such encouragement like yours has been very positive for us to always make better and improved.

Best Regards,
Bonar Hasibuan

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Trust me I run a hotel and know better than anyone how hard it is to offer consistent service and that your expectations cannot be the same from a one star to a five star hotel. A friend of us living in Bali recommended us the Favehotel Seminyak after I asked him a good value for money hotel in a nice location. The location was perfect, close the nice boutiques of Seminyak and hundreds of meters away from the beach.
CONS
1.the room was dirty with air on the floor.
2.the room was smelly from the previous guests and on top of that you cannot open the window which means they never refresh the room. We ended up opening the front door for an hour.
3.disgusting smell came out on the second day from the drainage and nothing was done about it.
4.our next door neighbors had a fight with broken glasses plus shouting. We called the reception 3 times to do something. My wife accompanied the security guard to talk to the guest and ask them to stop disturbing everyone. By the way the whole floor guests were outside their rooms disturbed by the noise. The guests who were smoking on a non smoking floor pushed the security guard away and closed the door. Finally half asleep I rushed into their room shouted at them and I think scared them a little as I was furious. Conclusion of the story, there was no night manager in charge, the security is useless and the walls of the rooms are so thin that you can hear everything.
5. AC is so noisy.
PROS
1.cute small room
2.good location

Dear TonyBellony,

First of all, we apologize for the inconvenience you experienced during your stay in favehotel Seminyak.

As you mentioned you are a hotelier so you will understand that unfortunately we can not control who stays in the room and that they will behave correctly. Upon reviewing the problem we found the guest did not speak English and we did not have a translator available at the time, the guest left the next morning. We see that this problem was not handled successfully and will try to find a way to make sure the staff are trained better on how to handle these kind of situations in the future even though they are quite rare.
Your complaints on the cleanliness of the rooms are taken very seriously and we will double check the room you stayed in for the odors you mentioned.

Your positive comments on the room and location are appreciated, however we are sorry we didn't exceed your expectations on service and cleanliness.

I hope you will give us a second chance to visit the property and experience the great Balinese hospitality we usually provide for our guests.

With kind regards,
Bonar Hasibuan
General Manager

Dear DeonArdi,

I am glad that you enjoyed the value of our hotel during your stay at favehotel Seminyak. We keep on providing great offers on our website and our partner via travel agent
In addition to the noise level in our corridor, our team has added a “Sleep Concierge” to walk around during the night on guest floor to advise any guests in the room or on the corridor to reduce their noise if happens. We are also preparing to provide earplugs in each room. Our project team has looked into improving noise reduction level by looking at every possibility around the corridor and the guestroom. This is an ongoing progress which we monitor periodically.
I look forward to your return stay for another future fun, fresh and friendly experience at favehotel Seminyak Bali.

Best Regards,
Bonar Hasibuan

This hotel is situated in a pretty decent area. It's within walking distance to the beach (very clean beach too). Across the street is a convenience store and many other options for food and clothing, etc. The staff was friendly and available 24/7 which was nice seeing as we had to leave at 415 am for a flight. During the stay some kids were left in their room alone and screaming like they were at home. I eventually tired of the noise so I called down to reception. They handled it within 10 minutes. Could have been quicker but it was handled nonetheless. I would stay here again.

Dear Bmills83,
Your feedback has been very constructive and we thank you for your willingness to share it via TripAdvisor. I am glad that you enjoyed our location and our services, but some feedbacks related to the noise have been noted. We are apologize because our new daily “Sleep Concierge” that has to walk around during the night on guest floor to advise any guests in the room or on the corridor to reduce their noise is still learning and failed to perform their role. I have addressed today among the teams to ensure this service is improved. We are working towards improving some of our challenges for our future guests comfort, Look forward to your next stay.
Best regards,

We stayed in Favehotel Seminyak twice on our trip to Indonesia,
It is in a very good location, close to shopping, bars, entertainment and the beach and it was cheap, both rooms were clean although one set of sheets appeared to have old blood stains on them (but they were washed), the room is snug but not unreasonable, the walls are PAPER THIN so if you are after a quiet night then this may not be the place for you, the sound wasn't overboard for us but we can sleep through anything, the pool is right next to one of the dining areas which feels a little awkward especially if there are people eating and watching you. great service and we were picked up at the airport as promised. we chose the non breakfast option. would stay again

Dear Jengiraffe22,

Thank you for your compliment on our services, facilities, and location. We are already planning something to make guests more comfortable while swimming in the morning during breakfast time so as not to be noticed by guests who were having breakfast. We now have our daily “Sleep Concierge” to control the noise from inside the hotel, but this time our team failed to perform their role. I have addressed today among the teams to ensure this service is available at all time and ensure better communication among the team is improved. In addition we are offering guest’s ear plugs if they are disturbed by any of the night time noise.

With kind regards,
Bonar Hasibuan

The room is clean and of a reasonable size though the price was for a budget hotel. They even welcome you with a drink at the reception when you check-in. Location is good too...just round the corner from Jalan Seminyak.

- some weird noise during the night which sounds like lots of washing maschines above our room

It is actually a really good place to stay but you should not forget your earplugs. At least our room was noisy during the night.

Dear Iars 1212,

Thank you very much for your kind words. We are thrilled that you have enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed the Seminyak area. Please be assured that your kind feedback has been passed along to all our team and they are pleased to hear their hard work was noticed.
We appreciate the time and effort you spent in writing this review shared at TripAdvisor. Yes, we are still working on reducing the noise impact from our surrounding by making improvements in our own area. This may take a while, and for guests who expect lower noise impact, our Tower A at the back will be the better option. Please indicate on your reservation or ask our reception upon arrival if you need this option. Also as you mentioned no need to remember your ear plugs, we have some at the front desk if you need them.
I hope that your first experience will not deter you from returning to Bali and staying with us.

With kind regards,
Bonar Hasibuan
