This hotel is located in a very noisy area of Kuta, packed with restaurants and pubs. It is close to Kuta Beach and the Beachwalk shopping center. The entrance through a bar did not bothered us, and fortunately we were upgraded to a bigger room at no cost, which was nice, cause we got a bigger bed (a humongous one) and a more spacious room. The bathroom, even though was big and had complimentary toiletries, lacked a little amount of bleach, as mold was collecting on some corners. The view was not the best one, but we barely stayed at the hotel, and the beach or the temples are the best places if you want a good view. Besides, the heat outside renders impossible to keep them open. Air conditioning helps keep the room cold and dry (if you are leaving the room for a short while, try and put a business card on the power slot so you don't find the room humid and hot when you return. 2 new bottles of complimentary drinking water were left on the room everyday.
Apparently Bali doesn't have a non smoking policy and you can find ashtrays and cigarette butts in hallways, bars and even in indoor areas at the airport, so don't bother complaining about the smell.
The breakfast was ok, with Bali coffee, a strong one, and some choices of breads and sweets, and of course, fried rice and noodles. You can eat for less outside, but if you start early in the morning, as most tours do, it's an ok meal.
Either thin walls are an issue all around Southeast Asia, or we stayed mostly at paper mâché hotels, cause we we could hear people in the halls closing doors and talking loud (despite the fact that some people can't be noise cancelled).
It's a good hotel, clean on almost every area and amazing people as most Balinese are.
