If you want to be in thick of it in the Legian / Kuta strip then this a great new hotel to stay at. The beach is a short walk down Jalan Benesari (turn left outside the hotel) and on the way you pass The Balcony which serves nice food and is a well known 'secret' spot.
As the hotel is still relatively new, I stayed in March 2013 so it's clean and not yet overrun with guests. The top levels appeared to be unfinished (roof terrace bar / spa) but it was open and ideal for a sunset drink. I stayed on level one which had a dark corridor, it felt safe and was fine but it was just a bit odd and had the smell of butchers... :(
Very comfy king size bed and although the bathroom was small you could watch the TV from the shower! Room service is available however there are plenty of options to choose from just outside on Jalan Legian.
The room rate was with included breakfast and had all the typical offerings of the big hotels and villa's in Bali (fresh fruit, pancake, eggs anyway, rice dishes, cereals etc).
