I'm staying here in Taman Ayu right now.
Restaurants and spas are nearby, but no certified cash exchanger so I recommend to get it done before you come in the area.
Swimming pool is beautiful.
Bed linen is clean and crisp every day, and room is cleaned properly - no dust on the corners or anything like that.
I have to admit the place is not new, but its staff is looking after the facility well.
Receptionists are all very helpful. Arranged us hiring a driver and giving us good advice for getting to know the area.
We are very comfortable staying here, and never want to leave.

We staid here for 4 nights, the Hotel has a very good location ca. 20min easy walk from Seminyak square, very close to Potato Head. Excellent staff, good choice of breakfast. The beaches in Seminyak are not too nice but the hotel has lovely pool with bar and restaurant facilities. Good gateway location for trips north and northeast of Seminyak. The only thing is that bathroom was a bit overused but it didn't impact the overall perception which is very good value for money.

I stayed at the Taman Ayu for 6 nights in June 2014. I got a great deal on the room which was standard but all I needed as I wasn't going to hang out in my room. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. They were working on the room next door which I could hear early in the morning. It might be worth asking when booking although I used it as motivation to get out of bed and explore. The pool is beautiful and worth getting there early to get a chair in the sun. I even used the gym (only once) but was nice that it was there.

The staff were all very helpful and friendly. I did send an email asking a few questions before I traveled and they were very quick to respond. Breakfast was included and I would call it average. It was nice to not have to worry about breakfast everyday though. I did hear they are trying to improve the menu.

All in all I would recommend staying here. It is a short walk to the beach and close to many shops and places to eat.

Cab tip: Make sure you only get in if they will put the meter on. I was taken once and very annoyed by this! They will try to scam you if you don't demand they use the meter. Blue Bird cabs is the preferred choice but make sure they use the meter. I arrived at the airport at midnight and got a cab on my own. I ended up paying around 400,000 Rupiah which I understand is high, but was my only option. It might be worth having the Taman Ayu set up your cab from the airport for you. They are also helpful in letting you know general cab fares.

I stayed here for 16 days while visiting my son in bali. The hotel is traditional style and so tranquil it's just fabulous I stayed in one of the older rooms which will be better after a makeover, but for the price I was very happy. The best thing about this hotel has to be the staff who seem to be one happy family and they could not have done anymore to make me feel welcome. The location is great just a walk to the beach shops and restaurants I loved it and can't wait to go back.

Stayed a week here after reading other reviews. I stayed in Room 902 overlooking the pool. It was a large room and had separate bathroom/vanity room. As in some comments, the bathroom was a little dated, as was the dressing table in the main room. Also the bar fridge was frozen up. That is the end of anything negative. As for everything else, it was perfect. The service was exceptional as was the cleaning and facilities. Keeping in mind what I paid, The Taman Ayu was more than adequate. I you want something better then spend $120 + per night. If you want a great value place to stay, I would recommend Taman Ayu.
Location is quieter than other parts of Kuta and Legian which I found suited me as if I wanted hustle and bustle, it was only a short inexpensive taxi ride to central Seminyak or a little further to Legian. Will stay at Taman Ayu on my next trip for sure.

Room Tip: Rear rooms are quieter but room 902 or the one above it are perfect if you don't mind a little p...

The rate for this hotel is pretty good for the size of the room that I got. It was a very big room and the bed was comfortable. It had a gym and a nice size pool. And included free breakfast , which was very good. I would definitely stay there again. The staff are quite nice and accomodating. And excellent location.
