Picked this hotel mostly based on the wife's choice of where she wanted to be in Bali and on the good reviews on this site, so I wish to add my recommendations to the growing list.
Stayed in a one-room villa for 3 nights this past week with my wife and two-year-old daughter. Most reviews have covered most, if not all, of the good points of the Seminyak Icon = decent location, cleanliness, good service from hotel staff etc etc.
I like the fact the bedroom, bathroom and living area are air-conditioned to keep the mozzies out, but I do wish the living and bedroom are connected directly, instead of having to open and close sliding doors constantly if the aircon is running to keep out the mozzies.
The location is quiet down a small street, but the condition of the street leading to the Icon and pavements around the Seminyak area made me glad I left the stroller behind. But that meant having to carry a tired and/or cranky child quite often. Ladies should also be forewarned and bring some sensible walking shoes, or simply take a taxi back to the hotel.
We chose to use the free drop-off service everytime we want to leave, but given there was only one (or two?) minivan, we had to book in advance or piggyback on another guest's booking, provided there was enough seating space in the minivan.
I also used the mountain bikes provided by the hotel to grab a takeaway dinner from Warung Made one evening -- definitely quicker than walking, and cheaper and more fun than waiting and paying for a cab.
Stayed in Villa 1 which is next to the reception and dining area -- wasn't bothered by any noise...
