“Superb Minimalist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

The first thing anyone will notice is the color theme POP Harris hotel put in place to welcome their guess. A nice touch to bring out the holiday mood.

4D3N stay at the hotel. Overall satisfied, friendly staff, delicious complementary breakfast and easy access to the surrounding areas, with various shops and restaurant scattered around. A touch of Balinese lifestyle minus the crowded and busy Kuta / Seminyak area.

The room is clean, with free wifi access, air conditioned, TV and safe deposit box, room cleaned every morning. As with a minimalist in mind, no pool access and gym facility in the hotel. The hotel is also quite far from the beach / seaside.

For those who is looking for exciting nightlife / pup / disco / beachside, this is not the place to stay, nevertheless.

Room Tip: Room have windows which cannot be open (non-smoker room).

Dear Stephen,

Warmest greeting from POP! Hotel Teuku Umar Denpasar Bali.

Thank you for your review, it is a pleasant to know that you enjoy staying in our hotel.
Our hotel is located in the center of Denpasar area, so when you come back, don't forget to go around to try and experience some local Indonesian food in surrounding restaurants., from Balinese, Javanese, and other Indonesian traditional food.
In case you plan to go to the beach, or other tourism spot, our reception will always be happy to help to book any transport that you need, and most of the time we have taxi stand by in front of the hotel lobby.

Hopefully we will see you soon come back to Bali and stay in POP! Hotel. We are looking forward welcoming you back to our Hotel.

Thank you

Sincerely yours,

Irene Janti

Although POP is not located in a real tourist destination, it is a heaven once you enter it!! POP is a real pleasant surprise with very clean and comfortable rooms. Bathroom is a tiny ’pod’ but clean, unique and built in high standards. AC, LCD TV and beds are comfortable. The computer zone in the lobby with free internet is a positive feature. The simple Balinese breakfast “Nasi Jingoo” is fine. They also provide towel, safety box, shampoo, soap, and mineral water daily. There are many local restaurants nearby including an Indian restaurant. The staffs are friendly and the receptionists are well mannered. I was impressed by the gesture of the lady receptionist, who allowed me to check-out more than one hour late!! The neon color scheme of this hotel, from the innovative words POP upon entrance to the different brightly colored mosquito netting makes this hotel truly stands out. I wish to go back again and again!!

I like this hotel. You will get all needed for 2-3 days short business trip if you put aside the breakfast point. Clean sheet and towel, cool aircon, free wi-fi, standard international tv channel including sport, HBO, Cinemax, and ESPN sports channel. Stay here for more than three times, and book online via hotel website.

The room is modern minimalist and has cheerful color. Although I like the room design, but unfortunately it is difficult to work with laptop in the room since there's no convenient space to put your laptop and sit. The small table at corner of the bed is too far from electric slot. Perhaps if the hotel install one slot near this table, then we can do our work in this space.

I'm not recommend this hotel for 1st timer Bali's tourist (especially foreigner) due to its location which too far from hip tourist spot such as Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, etc. I recommend to spent few more dollars and choose better location around Legian or Kuta rather than spent it for taxi's cost traveling back and forth to hotel and waste your time in city's traffic jam.

If you're local, traveling in couples, willing to rent a car/bike and able to read map, this hotel might be your best choice in Denpasar.

Room Tip: If you need a quieter room, AVOID room number 312, 311, 212,211, since its too close to busy Teuku U...

Try to subscribe your email to their official website so that you will receive any update promo. Lucky for me, I got rate for IDR 188,000/night/room as their normal rate usually start from IDR 288,000, I believe because it was fasting month in Indonesia. But if you are lucky enough you will probably get their best rate in IDR 88,000/night/room. Booked directly to hotel reservation for three nights.

Breakfast is Authentic Indonesian cuisine, please do not expect fancy omelet and cereal. Accompany with tea or coffee to select for...it's more than enough for me to start a day. They also sell porridge with additional charge (<IDR 10,000)

Location wont be any issue for any traveler who rent a car during their stay. Although it is far from any tourism spot, well at least you can find yourself having a comfy night rest away from the night bustling after a long day doing the tour.

Yes indeed it's budget and chic hotel concept, but they comply all room with "Emergency Exit Plan" information board. Supported eco-friendly environment with selection garbage bin, for me it's small thing that make the difference in our environment.

Stayed 2 nights, we had wifi, a/c, breakfast and a nice 'pod' bathroom w warm shower.

Location is different from the usual Kuta beach stays and everyone was like "you're staying in Denpasar?", but we found it neat with less tourists and less shopkeepers trying to push wares.
There is a supermarket about a block down the road (which thankfully you don't need to cross as its super busy).

*note: taxis are easy to get to kuta or airport for around $40,000 or anywhere (even to another city).

Pop Harris is a cool, modern and cheerful looking place. Reception staff are friendly and there is handy internet access in the lobby, though it does get noisy being partially open to the street.

We stayed for three nights for less than $100 total, and that value boosts my rating for this hotel from "average".

There are a few flaws. There is no peep hole in the room doors. Annoying, loud music is played in the halls, which you can hear in your room, that didn't stop until after 11. There were strange creaks and groans at night from this apparently still-settling building. The A/C made some odd noises as well, shut down occasionally, then dripped water on the far end of the bed. The bathroom could have used a good, proper cleaning. Overall, the shine has gone off the newness of this place.

On the other hand, the bathroom design is clever, with hot and cold water working fine. We had a decent view over the city, the bed was very comfortable, and the window blind is very effective at shutting out the outside light. The breakfast was not bad - rice with some spice on the side. There was always a taxi waiting right outside. Some good restaurant choices are nearby, though the road is difficult to cross because of the traffic.

Pop Harris makes a good base for day trips, and the price is more than fair. But if you're on holidays, you'll probably want to move on after a few days.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your valuable comments. It is always great to hear your comment which always bring us to better improvement in the future.

We have adjusted our background music set up. Corridor music has been set up to be off on 20.00, so our guest can have a good rest without disturbed with music background in corridor.

Good value of money is one of our main points, which give more chance to our smart traveller guest to spend their money to the other things around, such as culinary, recreation or shopping in Bali.
The hotel had been open 1.5 years ago, which we understand it is time for us to do some major touch up and maintenance in the room. And all this activities are in process now and done in partial basis from one room to others.

Thank you for your valuable comment. We are looking forward welcoming you again in POP! Hotel.

Sincerely yours,
