Having to transit through bali there are a heap of hotels to choose from. Managed to get a superior room at about AUD30, booked 2 days in advance. Lets start with the bad. Location is Awful! Located about 5min by taxi from the airport (good), but you have to drive down a back alley for 400m. You also need to walk back up this alley to the closest convenience store. At nights there are no lights on this road, the kind of back road you would get mugged on and no one can hear you scream.
That being said, the hotel itself is clean and comfortable enough. Aircon and hot water worked, although be aware that even with both curtains drawn, at night, passersby can still see into the room. Staff were courteous and polite enough. As I was only there for a night, I really didn't see much of the staff or use any of the hotel amenities. There is a spa for massages and 2 pools, not big but more of an oversized plunge pool.
As there is nothing of interest around the hotel, I chose to walk and explore around the area. It was about a 30minute stroll to the discovery mall, waterbom park and the kuta area. You can order a taxi through the hotel but I chose to take the slow route on the day.
If you are after a quiet, out of the way hotel to overnight, then this place is fine. Not that great if you have kids as there isn't much to keep them occupied and it is quite a distance from any attractions. Would stay here again if by myself, but not if I was with the family. THere are better located hotels for families within the same budget.
