I'd read a few reviews before booking the Bakung Sari, and I'm not really surprised by some other opinions but it didn't affect my stay, we didn't have anything to go wrong.
We'd been travelling around Europe in a small camper for 6 months staying at crowded campsites with shared, mostly dirty/sandy facilities, which was fun for us, so anything with our own bathroom and more than a metre of space around the bed is luxury to us. The Bakung Sari were able to happily check us in at 1am when we arrived, gave us a refreshing glass of juice, and helped us get our heavy bags up to our standard room (which was larger than I thought it would be) overlooking the pool. It was one of the older rooms so there were definitely things that could be fixed (the flush on the toilet, maybe another wall in the bathroom so everything doesn't get wet after a shower, updated furniture etc )but our room was clean and had a great view over the pool and garden (which are very well maintained). I was surprised that breakfast was included (I wasn't aware of this when I booked) and it's basic but filled us up enough to start each day. We used the wifi and the reception in our room was fine. We were close enough to warungs, convenience shops, other shops, spas etc to have things to do if we didn't feel like walking the 10min into Kuta, but far enough away that I found it to be quiet compared to some other places closer to the centre of the action.
We'd originally booked for 2 nights and ended up needing to extend whilst we found somewhere long term down near Uluwatu and purchased all our surf gear, and the hotel were more than happy to honour the same rate we'd paid on Asia Rooms for an additional night and we didn't need to change rooms.
All in all it's great if you just want something basic and cheap - go elsewhere and pay more if you want luxury.
