Staff was very pushy, they wanted to sell us trips and tickets, and we felt they stopped being nice when we didnt. breakfast was very late, not until 8.15-8.30, even though they promissed it at...

A cute, family run guesthouse tucked off the busy main road near the market in Ubud. Several generations potter about past your rooms porch if you hang around, which you likely will be tempted to do. They are genuine people and are always happy to see you. They will naturally enquire about your holiday plans and offer to help. This... More

The warm and welcoming family is really interested in your journey. They offered me some tours, but I've chosen another cycling tour. There's was no problem for them as suggested in other reviews. The room was plain and simple. But aircon (not needed actually), hot water and western style toilet. I had the least luxurious room (no glass windows, just... More

The place itself was fine actually, breakfast was quite nice with a bowl of fresh fruit and omlette/pancake. It didn't start well with the staff though, since they took the remote for the AC although we paid for it and they tried to make us pay a higher price than the one we talked about (with AC). Next thing the... More

We booked with Raka because it was mentioned in the Lonely planet. Raka owns and maintains a couple of rooms in his family compound. Raka is a friendly man who is always up for a chat, his english is not very good so make sure you understand eachother when making agreements. The good: We had a room on the 1st... More

Our family of five travelled visited Ubud early in July 2014. We loved our stay at Raka House. Just six rooms at the rear of Raka's family compound, which is lovingly tended by Raka himself. We loved our homestay experience in this quiet, but very centrally located, street. Our three children loved the pool and I loved sitting with a... More

I have stayed Raka many times over many years min.5 years. Booking in tonight I read this neg review... 100% unbelievable. Staff are typical Bali, friendly/helpful. Raka himself is kindness and welcoming...as is Bali/ esp Ubud. And those I have meet there over the years have been just as rewarding. I am an older traveller and would recommend Raka handsdown...
