I am a long term business traveller - my normal stay is 3 months. This gives me a unique view of most hotels - long term.

Staff were very attentive and thoughtful, in one case anticipating a need I had not yet identified myself (brought scissors to my room shortly after check-in so I could remove the plastic security wrap on my suitcase). The minor issues that did arise were dealt with promptly and courteously. Highly recommended!

Extremely friendly staff. Comfortable rooms. Great Food. If your looking for modern decor and contemporary furnishing, this is probably not the place for you. But Discovery Inn makes up for this and more with impeccable service and staff who will tend to your every need with a smile.

Thus, it is not surprising that you get significantly less value at hotels than anywhere else in the region. Discovery Inn is no exception. For the price of the small room I got, you easily get a private villa in Bali. But...

The staffs were very helpful and kind, we were allowed to have early check in and late check out. One of my friend's luggage did not arrive with them, and the staffs were very informative on how to deal with the airport. They always ready to offer help. Diya Restaurant downstairs has amazing food too!

The hotel has a decent restaurant attached called Diya as well as a branch of Gloria Jean's coffee shop. Check-in was quick and friendly. English is relatively limited but enough to get by.
