This may be the best cheap hotel in Kuta. Two ex-pats I met there said so. It's about half way up Poppies 1 laneway.
I paid 225,000 per night on my own for an upstairs room near the back pool (about $26 AUD per night). There was 2 king single beds. Rooms come with a portable clothes airer that was really handy. Mine was always on the balcony drying my towels and shorts. They don’t mind you leaving it out there. The grounds are very Bali - neat, green and relaxing. The pools were clean and large. No spa. No swim up bar, but you can take your own drinks to the pool.
The rooms and bathroom are old but clean. The TV is a little high up on the wall, but perfect for watching DVDs while lying in bed. No DVD player, no kettle, no shower soaps. There is a safe. Bathroom sink had lots of space to store stuff.
At the hotel entrance in Poppies 1 laneway, there is a laundry service, a DVD store where DVD player rental is 30,000 per day, several internet cafes, massage lounges, cheap cafes and Kwiki-marts. Perfect! (There are also the more expensive cafes and bars if you prefer). Sunset on Kuta beach is about a 5 minute walk away- although I always took the motorbike as it was so hot! The legian nightclub strip is about a 5-10 min walk away.
I hired a motorbike from one of the security guards and his mate across the laneway has a 7 seater car and only charged me 50,000 to take me to the airport. The staff were friendly and they always recognised me to give me my room key - no questions ever asked. Breakfast was toasted sandwiches/eggs/pancakes with fresh juice and stays open til 11am.
There's no private balcony, the entrance to the rooms is via the balcony terrace. The window curtain does not cover up the top part of the window, so morning light and neighboring balcony night lights do stream thru, but this wasnt an issue for me.
Great hotel for the price. I will stay here again.
