La Walon Hotel
Ranked #137 of 253 Hotels in Kuta
Reviewed November 27, 2011

We have stayed at La Walon Hotel in Poppies 1 several times. While it is budget accommodation it is good value for money. Location is excellent, with only a short stroll to either the beach or Kuta Square. There are some really nice restaurants close by and you just have to take a short walk down Poppies to find a massage, manicure, shopping, bookshop, bar, tour operator, 24/7 and there are several ATMs close by, including two right under the hotel's reception area.

On our last visit we (71 year old mother and myself) stayed in one of the deluxe rooms that are located in the reception wing. the rooms are large with a small balcony (not really big enough for chairs though) that overlooked the pool and restaurant area. The room had a very cold airconditioner and a very nice bathroom. The fridge was only a small bar size but enough room for a couple of cans of drink. Breakfast was basic, but enough for us - eggs, toast, fruit, fruit juice and a cuppa.

Only negatives, bathroom was quite small and the shower floor was very slippery and flooded. We bought a cheap bath mat from Matahari that solved our slipping problem.

Staff very friendly and the food at the restaurant is excellent. We would often come back to the hotel after shopping and order some lunch that was happily delivered to our room.

Pool was on the coolish side (temperature wise) as it is in the shade in the arvo, but that is often a releif from the hot sun.

Overall, for the price we paid, 500 000Rp/night for 2 adults with breakfast, this hotel is always on the top of our list when holidaying in Bali.

Staff are always happy to give us a good price on accommodation when we email them.

room furniture and toilet facilities are better than Masa Inn next door for a similar price. provides small soap but no soap dish, no other toiletries given. Rooms are clean and good water pressure in the shower.
Rooms numbers are labeled not according to floors. Rooms with 300 series were on a higher floor than the 400 series.
Must bring own power adaptor(european), hotel does not seem to provide and non counter staff tried to sell me an ugly used one for 20,000. He said it was left behind from a previous hotel guest :-(
Restaurant menu not appealing, more western than local cuisine.
International tv channels is a plus.
like the free wifi but wifi reception in rooms far from lobby will have weak to no signal.

Room Tip: request to see the room as rooms above the lobby have good wifi signal but can be noisy. Rooms furth...

We were disappointed by the run-down room/bathroom and really horrible breakfast. This place is the same price as Masa Inn next door and Masa is much better for the price. I would not recommend La Walon!!

I have stayed at La Walon a couple of times now and both times they have messed me around with my room which apparently they do with most people on arrival. I booked months in advance directly to the manager of the hotel and even printed out the emails as proof in what I requested which was stated really clearly to be in the new section in a Delux Room. I was changed the next day but I was NOT happy.
Even though they mess around with the room requests, I would stay here again because the location is great, it is good value for money, the staff are very friendly and your room gets cleaned daily.

I spent three nights in this pleasant hotel with my wife and eight year old son in July, 2011. Our room was nice and light and spacious, our bed was comfortable, the bathroom, although small, was fine. The air-conditioning worked well and we did not lack hot water at all. I got the impression after looking at the older wing from outside that we would not have been as happy with our room if we hadn't stayed in the hotel's new wing. I might be worng, though. The staff were pleasant. The small swimming pool was nice, although not spectacular. The breakfast, which was included in the price we paid for the room, filled the hole. We had an evening meal in the hotel restaurant one night and we would never repeat the experience. In a word: rubbish. The hotel is in busy, hectic, but very narrow Poppies Lane 1. I found walking to the beach from the hotel and back to the hotel from the beach to be an upleasant experience. One has to keep moving out of the way to allow motorscooters past. As soon as one of these extremely irritating and potentially dangerous things passes you, along comes another and so on and so on. And it's quite a long walk to the beach. Having said that, some love the business of Poppies Lane, my wife being one such person. My son didn't complain either. On the whole, we enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would probably stay again despite the hastle, some would say exitement, of staying in busy Poppies Lane 1.
