I am booking a girls trip to Bali in March for myself and my bestie and thought we would stay in Ubud for a few nights to start our trip. I have never stayed up there before so need some help please.
I have contacted the Tegal Sari and Alam Indah and both have vacancies which won't last for long so I need to get it sorted asap. My last trip to Bali I stayed at the Padma but I don't want to spend that much money this time around as I am going back in June with my kids.
I have also been quoted by a Travel Agent to stay at the Santi Mandala which is about double the cost of the other two options. She is going to get back to me with another option but I haven't heard yet. I have told her I may book my Ubud accommodation myself as they don't use either of the hotels I have had quoted myself.
My questions are:
Will I notice a huge difference in the quality of the hotel if I go for the cheaper options? To be honest I just want a clean room, sheets and towels, beautiful gardens and lovely staff.
Are any of them in a better location as far as walking to restaurants etc?
Which hotel would you prefer to stay at as a frequent traveller to Ubud?
Thanks so much
