Stayed here recently from 5 September 2013-10 September 2013. Room 102- Near to the reception area but the bonus-we were able to have internet access all day round. It is a superior room with 2 single beds. There is another category which is the superior suite. Booked the room through Agoda and the Hotel do not require any deposit nor credit card as misc charges throughout the stay. All staff were polite, friendly and helpful and they keep smiling all the time. Although the room was small, we were happy for the entire stay, suited the budget we spent and who needs bigger room when one will not be in the room for the entire stay?
Yes, it is a budget hotel but with a 5 star service, I shall say. No pool but you feel relaxed when staying here. Location is very strategic as being said in previous reviews and though it is nearby to everything, it is still located in a quiet road, which is a bonus. The neighbor is the Kuta Theater Magic Show. Yup, people need to scale up some steps to get to the Hotel, but will not take all your energy. The staff will help you with your luggage(s) if you need them.
Breakfast served in the lounge area outside the reception hall. You get to choose either American/Continental or Asian breakfast with coffee/Tea or juice of your choice. They will send your breakfast to your room if you are lazy enough to get out of your room in the morning. Be reminded that superior room do not have coffee/tea making facilities as superior suite does. But I guess you can always try to request for a kettle if you need it. No fridge in the room but it is okay, we don't need them. The housekeeper will turn on the AC after cleaning the room so that your room will be in the right temperature when you come back to your room-good job housekeeper!
If your room is far from the reception area, you can always hang out at the lounge area inside or outside (if you smoke), to play with your gadgets and get connected to the internet. Hotel can arrange pick up to and from the airport. Taxis also easy to hail from ground floor of the hotel or you can walk to the bigger road which is just 1 minute walking time. There are shops selling souvenirs and just anything you need along the road that leads either to Discovery Mall or Jalan Pantai Kuta. ATM, yes, nearby as well as massage shop, bar and oh yeah practically anything.
The best part of our stay was the 5 star service and smile from the staff. They will help you if you need anything, without hesitation. I recommend this hotel to those looking for a budget place to stay but nearby to everything in Kuta. The negative reviews, well, that I think is just their personal opinion. I believe the majority patrons/customers of this hotel are satisfied with what they spent and get. If you need swimming pool, then fork out more money to stay at a bigger hotel. For us, bed, AC, security, breakfast, staff politeness and friendliness as well as clean and cheap are the factor to consider when staying in a Hotel, especially in Kuta as we can use the extra money for other purposes, maybe massage or buying souvenirs..or pubs maybe?
Thank you to the staff and Management of this Hotel who keep entertaining us and looking after our needs throughout the stay. Forgot some names but remember some- Gede, Ari, Ananta, Eka, Ana and so on..thank you so much...we are planning to come back for New Year Celebration from 28 December 2013- 2 January 2014. See you and thank you again.
