We had booked this inn for six nights via an outside booking service. Some reviews say it's hard to find but our cab driver had no trouble when he looked at the street address. The hosts could not have been kinder or more helpful, even going so far as to drive my husband to a fast food restaurant on his motorcycle.
The room we had a set of double sliding doors in wood casings on either side of the room. Interestingly enough, apparently those doors could not be locked. On one side the doors opened to the small swimming pool and on the other into a small courtyard. With both doors open a lovely breeze blew through the room and we could enjoy the birds singing.
Our room was a warm golden yellow with simple furnishings. The linens passed my very strict "sniff test" and the bed was comfortable enough. Wifi was available and worked ok in the common areas but not in the rooms. At one end of the property was a kitchen facility with a few tables where the breakfast was prepared and served by the houseboy. (Breakfast not included in room rate.)
We were not so unhappy with this hotel except for one thing- allergy issues abounded with cats running about on the furnishings and mold in abundance. Because of this we walked down the road to another property. Having booked ahead with agoda, they could have charged us a penalty but because I stipulated on my inquiry that mold free was necessary, they kindly waived the fee.
Most of the other guests were young backpackers, mostly men, who left during the days and came back at night. Indeed, this is the kind of property that is fine if you want an inexpensive spot to rest at night but don't expect to hang out there for the day. It's quiet and everyone is kind, but that's about it! As others have mentioned, it's at one end of the beach and it's a bit of a very pleasant walk to the center of Sanur. Personally, we liked that but others may not.
