“Small, but thoughtful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

A wonderful experience in conjunction with Small Luxury Hotels (SLH.com). Although the rooms are compact in size, they are all jam packed with personality and clever touches. There is the tiny toilet concealed in a wardrobe. A bathroom that is cleverly incorporated in the overall room amenities. Everything a modern traveller should need is thought through and provided.

Personalised butler service should be mentioned and commended. There are literally thousands of accommodation providers within the seminyak area, what sets L apart is very much her very competent staff, from the security, to the butler and front desk personnel are all top notch.

Thoughtfulness of L towards anticipating guests' needs extends to a on call shuttle service around Seminyak area, which was greatly utilised. A small pool is located near the bar area, but another larger pool complex is provided for guests use. This is within steps from the hotel, but NO, they insists that you be driven across the road. Want some beach action? No worries, the shuttle will gladly transport you to an affiliated beachside cafe for loungers and beachside R&R. How do I get back to the hotel? I hear you ask. No trouble, this has been thought through as well. L provides each suite with a local mobile phone, preset with butler's numbers for anything you may require offsite.

Attention to detail here is superb and my sincere gratitude to all staff members for a job well done. A truly memorable and enjoyable stay.

This is a lovely hotel in Bali and we really enjoyed our stay here. We arranged to be picked up at the airport by the hotel car which was lovely and comfortable and had bottles of cold water waiting for us inside. The lobby of the hotel was beautiful and they sat us here to check in while providing refreshments. They took our cases up to the room for us during check in. We were then taken to our room which was very spacious and comfortable with lots of complimentary toiletries on offer and a well stocked mini bar. We had booked the suite room as it was our honeymoon and they had decorated the bed for us with rose petals and towels made up into swans. After we had settled in they also brought us a lovely little cake with congratulations written on it. The stand alone bath in the centre of the room was a great feature and they provided plenty of bath salts and bubble bath to use with it.

We went for the cocktail happy hour at the roof bar which had lovely views over Bali all the way out to the sea. The cocktails were delicious too. We then had a teppanyaki meal for dinner for which our chef was very entertaining and had great skills. It was just us on the table which was lovely.

The next morning we had breakfast at the roof bar/restaurant again. We were given a yogurt drink, bread and pastries, fresh fruit and Nasi Goreng so there was a lot of food! It was served with freshly made fruit juice and tea/coffee. We really enjoyed it.

If you are visiting Bali this is a great place to stay and we would definitely recommend it. The service we received was very friendly and attentive throughout and everyone spoke good English. A great experience.

I have been coming to the L since it opened...and while things have changed (some for better, some for worse) it is still my go-to spot in Seminyak. First thing you need to know is that the L is cool. The lobby is chic and fun, the welcome drink unexpectedly tasty and he rooms impressively decked out. They also care about the little touches. A pillow menu, a goldfish for the lonely traveler and really nice toiletries. But i do miss some of the other finer touches they used to have. Gone is the free minibar, gone is steak and foi gras room service and gone is the free canapés at sunset. These were parts of the L that I loved and I am sorry to see them slip away. However, while the "extras" have been reduced, so has the price. I travel on business so the price doesn’t matter as much, but i understand that this price discount can really help the newlyweds who frequent the L. I will continue returning to the L because I love the cool factor, the service and the still outstanding breakfast...but boy do i miss the canapés!

We stayed at the L Hotel for our first ever night in Bali. The hotel arranged the airport transfer and even though it took us nearly 3hrs to get through immigration, the driver was out the front waiting for us holding the hotel logo as his sign. He was very friendly. From the moment we arrived at the hotel we felt like royalty. All the staff were extremely friendly during our stay. Yes the room was small but it was absolutely gorgeous and modern. The shower in the Legian suite was glass but there is a blind that comes down. The cocktails and food were delicious and the massages my friend and I got at the L Spa next door were magical. There is a gorgeous table in one of the restaurants that doubles as the water feature. The butler service was brilliant and anything we needed they were happy to help us with. My friend accidentally left her purse in the lobby and they kindly returned it to the room not long after. We chose the breakfast included in our booking and it was magnificent. They gave us lots of starters and then could order anything we liked off the menu as well - very filling. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows were awesome. Overall we love this hotel and didn't want to leave. We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone we know. Thank you L Hotel for our most amazing start to our Bali holiday, it couldn't have been more perfect :-)

The staff absolutely made this hotel - incredibly helpful and friendly!

Loved the quirky touches such as the towel origami, "welcome home" greeting whenever you returned to the hotel and the pillow menu!

Great hotel, definitely not a 5 star one but definitely a 4.. Clean rooms and amazing helpful staff.. The only issue is the toilet which s a part of the closet! Yes it is! There s no balcony and you can't open the windows to get fresh air.. But definitely a nice hotel.. Will stay again

Dear Afrooz

Our toilet is cleverly paneled the same row as the wardrobe cabinet but not part of the wardrobe. Being a boutique hotel, in our Lifestyle suites, not Luxe suites, the shower area and toilet are separated to give quaint privacy to the couple. It is just a design style of the architect and interior designer to make use of spaces more functional. Majority of our customers love it. We believe our service is good and that our product, which is selected by Small Luxury Hotels of The World ( SLH) where only premium products of esteemed unique experience and 5 star quality are qualified.

We hope to continue to improve to meet your expectation.
