“Grandmas really know the budget travelers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

We had seen many advertisements on this budget hotel. So when we planned our trip for December thru January 2012, we decide we need to try this property at least once.
We booked online and check in.

The reception was fast and efficient. They allow us to check in early as it was after the Crazy new year period and the hotel was not full. We were glad as we had to move from one property to another. So allowing us to check in early was perfect.

The room is small but the basic was there. Infact, it has somewhat clean bedsheet till we actually check the comforter cover. There were some stains on it. We believe this is because the hotel does not change your bedsheet due to the so call ECO Friendly programme? However, as overseas tourists, if this is the reason the comforter cover and sheets must be clean in the first place before we checked in.;) We did tell them at the front desk discretely so as not to frighten off the other guests.

This is a new hotel. Yes, we do agree the owner, investor and operator have got it all right! They knew what a budget traveler would like in a room. the pluses are: generous in room lighting, hot water and good shower head, shower gel and shampoo dispenser, 2 bottles mineral water, clean towels, clean floor and excellent multi channel TV station.

The downside are: small room, no other amenities like coffee mug, glasses, coffee making facilities, stained comforter cover( hotels usually do not change this daily), do not change sheet and towels daily and no closets.

Tips here; bring a portable kettle for making own coffee, soup, noodle, a portable blanket pillow( 2 in 1) that can double up as a bed cover when required.

The hotel rooms are non smoking and there is a swimming pool and a restaurant but the room rate at average USD40 nett (Rupiah 330,000)does not inlcude breakfast.

This hotel will be perfect for :
Single traveler with or without budget that needs a clean room, shower and TV channels.
Guest that needs safe room and ample lighting in the room
Guest that is not afraid of small space.
Guest that goes out early and just need room to sleep.
Guest that loves a good hot shower
Long term guest

Room Tip: Back room away from main street Check the comforter cover first

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

I spend two nights at Granmas Hotel at Seminyak Bali. It is new comer around Seminyak, the location is perfect. You just walk about 100m to the nearest beach, you can swim or surfing. Also getting lunch or dinner at Chez Gado Gado. You can rent a bike about IDR 60k for a day or IDR 100k for two days with pak Ketut at Jalan Drupadi 50m from the hotel. Then go to Potato Head Beach Club by bike around 3km from the hotel. Many cozy place to hang out or just relax with Spa in the front of Grandmas you can found Breeze Spa, also food adventure on the most magnificent places around Seminyak. You can also shopping at many outlet. I heard in the future, Grandmas Hotel will be have a swimming pool, restaurant in the front and souvenir store.
