Everything you need. Good bed, great shower, aircon, fridge, watercooker and everything very clean. Very close to beach, 2 good coffee places, good food (Warung little Bird). ATM arround the corner. Airport pick-up service. Nice people. Do you need more?

I have travelled the world and always look for good value for money,clean place and friendly host,staff and this place ranks as one of the best from the pick up at the airport to the room,laundry service and breakfast everything was more than we could have asked for albeit the reviews are very good.We had to visit the British Consulate for our wedding papers and so we stayed 3 nights at the end we were sorry to leave,great location,friendly staff and excellent value for money. The host Dave was friendly and helped us with everything we needed taxi's,trips and a visit to Lembonglan Island a must if you are in Bali.

I stayed at the Sindu Guest house for 6 nights. And all ran smoothly from my arrival at the airport
having arranged for a pick up by the Hotel. Following morning the staff provided a wonderful breakfast ..more than one might expect. The rooms are great & clean, Showers very good & nice renovated stylish bathroom. Wi Fi works well, And a nice peaceful out door sitting area.
Just a few mins walk down the St to the beach & coastal walk. Plenty of Restaurants and interesting shops around. Thoroughly recommend this place and will always be my choice stay in Sanur... Make sure you book all the nights you need as its a Gem, and one might like to stay longer. Incredible value, You will want to return as i did before you leave Bali

Four of us stayed (2 couples) for 10 nights in October and we were all delighted with this place, it was spotlessly clean and the rooms are lovely with a great shower, aircon and an adequate breakfast provided, it's in a great location for the beach, shops, atm's and restaurants, we can recommend Mango for lunch which is on the beach, Little Bird and Rib for Dinner where we ate several times as the food was great, during our stay we went to Lovina to see the dolphins stopping on the way to visit the monkey forest and paddy fields, we used budget accommodation and got up early to see the dolphins which was well worth getting up for, on the way back we stopped at the hot springs and Bratan temple and made it to Tanah Lot in time for the sunset, we went with a driver called Wayan who was recommended by Dave, Wayan was friendly and reliable, we will definitely stay here again if we return to Bali, we would also like to say thanks to Dave the owner who is a genuinely friendly guy, Dave arranged our taxi's to and from the airport and was always happy to provide very useful information.

Sindu guest house was a very nice place in a not so exciting city. I stayed in a deluxe room with aircon and TV and paid as much as for standard fan-cooled rooms elsewhere. The room also had a large fridge, tea/coffee making facilities and a large comfy bed. Breakfast was good and Dave, the owner, was present every morning to answer questions, give advice or help with travel arrangements. The guest house is located at the edge of town, walking distance to the beach, the ferry terminal to Nusa Lembongan and Sanur's many shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.

My wife and I stayed with David for a total of 6 nights. Airport transfer was arranged in advance and we arrived at the guest house without problems.
The driver let us into our room as we arrived late at night. Previous reviewers mentioned the cleanness and we can absolutely confirm that. Together with the spacious size of the room we immediately found ourselves very comfortable.

Breakfast is included and you can choose from 4 items including omelette and banana pancakes (our favourite choices). To drink you can get coffee or tea or Papaya and Pineapple juices.

The breakfast area was outside of our room but didn't bother us. Isolation is good and since breakfast starts at 8:30 you'll probably be up anyway.
At the breakfast area you'll also find a map of the surroundings. Make sure to check with Dave if you have any particular needs. Souvenir markets or car/motorbike rentals weren't on the map but Dave could point us to the right places.
There are a few books as well, noticeably a travel guide for Bali that we found a helpful supplement to the Lonely Planet.

The location is pretty good. Walking to the beach took us about 3-5 minutes and you'll step right into a strip of restaurants and hotels. Overall not the cheapest places but you can have a good dinner with live music for 2 persons for under 20 GBP in total.
There are a few expat-owned bars around the guest house where you can get food served until late (usually dinner is only served util about 10 pm). You'll also find plenty of shops and massage places in walking distance.
For abbig shopping spree, Harry's supermarket is a good choice and you can walk there in about 15 min.

We rented a motorbike and toured South-East Bali with Sindu Guest house as our homebase. You can get a motorbike from 40,000 Rp per day if you bargain a bit.
In a good hour you can reach the Ulu Watu temple at Southern Coast of the Bukit peninsula or the rice terraces of Ubud and in 1.5 hours you can get all the way up to the Besakih Temple. Traffic can be tricky but there is no rush since the way is part of the destination. Roads are usually reasonably good and as long as you have a map (we got it from the rental place) and know the name of your destination, other motorbikers or pedestrians will gladly point you in the right direction. They are always right and better than the signs!

In the vicinity there is also Sanur's harbour where you can catch a boat to Nusa Lembongan or the Gili Islands. We paid 150,000 Rp per person for a one way ticket to Nusa Lembongan.

All in all we enjoyed our stay very much. Thanks, David, for making the sindu guest house a great experience!

I reserved a room for 3 nights after reading very good comments about the place. Indeed the comments are true! Very good place, location, rooms and cleanliness for real budget prices! The owner (Dave) is always helpful with all info you might need to know. All running smooth and definitily a place to recommend. Warning: Reserve well in advance because the guest house has only four rooms and get full quickly specially for longer stays.

Room Tip: Room no. 1 has some noise from water pressure pump at night.
