“terrible hotel”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Actualy we went there at July 2010. The room is dirty, mody and dark. far from the beach, poor garden. The service is also terrible. The staff at the front desk is not kind. Never choose this hotel.

We didn't check the tripadvisor reviews for this hotel before we checked in and this was a big mistake! We saw three different rooms and every one of them was like a nightmare. The bathrooms were totally dirty and with big cockroaches on the floor! In every room were mold and it smells like this. The furniture is old and all the rooms need urgently a renovation.
After we saw the rooms we decided to go to another hotel even we paid already for one night. We saw very much different hotels all over the world but this was the worst hotel ever! Don't stay here!

My friend and I are travelling for 8 months and having already spent a month in Thailand this was the worst hotel we have EVER stayed in and comparing that to Thailand is certainly saying something. As backpackers we are on a budget and this was the cheapest hotel we could find in Sanur yet it was the most expensive we have stayed in. After 5 minutes of arriving there was no electric, the fan made the most annoying noise and didn't even cool us down, there was a huge hole in the ceiling in the toilet which was inviting a number of creepy crawly's including huge cockroaches into our room. The water was very smelly and we had to crouch down in order to use the shower. As a result we had next to no sleep the one night we stayed here. The staff were extremely rude and became very hostile when we informed them that we had booked a taxi with another company. If you are looking to come to Sanur my advice would be not to come here on a budget but instead come on holiday here as the more expensive hotels looked much more inviting and enjoyable. Overall a horrible place to stay!

Room Tip: There are no good rooms here, your only option to find a good room is to stay somewhere else!

Unhelpful staff, just after your money and the standard rooms are terrible. Not sure if theres something wrong with the water here but it STINKS! it's like showering in sewerage. Go up the road to Agung and Sue's Watering Hole for half the price and great service where I stayed the second time in Sanur.
If you need to leave some luggage if you are off to Lembongan or Gili, negotiate on the rate as it appears to look a little random and the proceeds look to go to the person behind the desk. I was charged 10000 per day, which isn't too much, but at most places it's usually free if you stay another night on your return.

I called and made a reservation at the hotel, and was really happy they agreed to a discounted price because it was low season. However, when I finally arrived at the hotel and saw what I was paying for, it was still priced about $10 too high.

The facility isn't so bad from the outside. It's right in front of the beach on the far northern side of town (bad location as there are few dining/entertainment options, but I could still hear the ocean). There was lots of shade and greenery and they have an attached restaurant facing the ocean. Also, an important note, we got the recommendation for the hotel from a guidebook which noted that it had a swimming pool- this is a misprint...I was disappointed to find out, it had a temple rather than a swimming pool on its grounds.

Our room was dark and musty and smelled like cat. The bedding was pretty rough too- we saw that the pillowcases and sheets had been marked (I'm assuming the year they'd been bought) and were dated 2006. The actual pillows themselves must have been older, as they were flattened and smelled really moldy. Our ceiling fan was really weak and incredibly loud, so we had to keep the front door open most of the time we were in the room to air it out and feel a breeze.

The worst was the bathroom though. Looking like something out of a horror movie...the tiles were mildewy and dated. The blue bathtub was rusted, and the toilet... we opened it up and it was lined with brown. disgusting. It also broke and ran water all night.

Now, the man who helped me book my reservation also helped us arrange a car to the airport, which was nice. However, when it came time to pay the bill, he increased our agreed price $25,000 Rp...which made me even more angry seeing as the room was hardly even our previously agreed price.

There are waaaay better options towards the middle/southern end of town- not only for hotels, but for dining and entertainment as well. The north end was pretty dull and seemed sketchier at night. Definitely pass on the Ananda Beach Hotel
