“Perfect location, great restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

We stayed here twice and really enjoyed the location. Close to Marlioboro St and right on Sosrowijayan this place has it all. Good restaurant serving up excellent western food, ice cold drinks and attentive staff. The rooms are cleaned every day, the more expensive rooms have hot showers and a/c. The budget rooms have Indonesian toilets, cold showers and fans. The pool is clean and a nice place to cool off after a hot day of sightseeing. The only negative is the noise from the construction next door and depending on your room the church behind the hotel. We really liked our stay and would recommend it to others.

I have stayed here twice now, once in 2009 and again now in May 2013.. Nothing much has changed and its still a great little hostel.. clean, friendly and good value for money - 120k for basic rooms. the hostel even boasts a swimming pool. the food is good, more western than Indonesian. it is pleasing that the standards have not slipped here. The only thing to consider is that there are having extensions being built next door, but that doesn't start till 8am and not that noisy and we don't spend that much time in the hotel when there are sights in and around Yoga to be seen and explored. Enjoy..

Room Tip: 120k for basic, 180k for luxury, 220k for deluxe

we do not trust LP (lonely planet) references, specially if they were given 2-3 years ago, businesses get lazy and give less for more
Surprisingly Bladok Losmen keeps interested in welcoming people, keeping rates moderate and serving good food at reasonable prices.
we recommend bladok salad by the pool when you're back from Borobudur !!!
good for them

Room Tip: standard rooms should be enough, adding more money does not give much better conditions

In the interests of reporting personal experience first, I stayed here on and off last year (July 2012) and although more expensive than my usual, it was clean and convenient and let me store luggage while going on volcano treks so I kept coming back here. My star ratings are based on last years's several stays, and the rest of this post is about re-visiting in 2013.

I arrived again this year (May 13, 2013) to check in, and the only room available at the time I came, was the notorious standard room at the back above the swimming pool which is known for getting the noise. I was informed breakfast is not included in the price for the standard room, which somehow didn't line up in my mind as I'm almost certain that last year a basic black coffee was a free item at breakfast. However, if that is incorrect then I apologise.

To their credit they informed me of the room issue while I was looking at it (even though it had already arisen in my mind, from reading reports, when seeing where it was situated). I asked if they had a double room (more expensive than the 110k of the standard room once tax is added) and they did, but it was then pointed out to me the renovation going on in front of the rooms. I looked to my left and it seems they are building a new wing, so the view in front of you is a load of scaffolding and workmen lying around. I was told that they will work from 8am-8pm.

I don't know if the noise levels will be tolerable or not, as I didn't stay in the end. Once more, to their credit they did point this issue out too, so there were no nasty surprises, but in my view they should be lowering the prices temporarily as compensation if they want people to keep coming during that renovation period.

I had a look at the double room where the bed took up most of the space in the room, considered the higher price, took into account the renovation noise and decided to move on to another place instead.

Unfortunate, because it was a bit of a 'regular' haunt last year for me and felt like a home from home to return to after volcanos, but there are plenty of other places around where breakfast is included (however basic), bigger rooms for the price and the tax already included in the price.

Sorry to pass it over this time, but it is no longer a unique kind of hotel in this area, and there are other choices so it may need to pull something unique out of the hat soon if it wishes to retain its once famed standing, I say.

This isn't the cheapest place around but it is great value for your money! The rooms here are clean and have their own bathroom (asian style). My room was a bit noisy due to nearby church and karaoke but they do warn you about these few rooms and I slept fine. The swimming pool is clean and inviting. I found the food at the restaurant very nice. But what striked me the most is how honest the staff was. We only realized this after we left. My friend forgot his expensive cellphone and the staff somehow managed through family to bring it to him all the way to Pemuteran, Bali! This meant a two hours drive each way for the family member of the staff. So thank you to everyone at Bladok for a nice stay and for making us believe in true good human nature...

Room Tip: If you wake up easily, ask for a room away from the pool area where you can hear the karaoke.

Food at this place was exceptionally good and at a great price. Menu offered lots of options (both Asian and Western) and staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend having dinner here!
