Kakiang Bungalows
Ranked #154 of 598 Specialty Lodging in Ubud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Location
Kakiang Bungalows is located at the south-end of the main streets of ubud but that's just a 15minute walk away. Don't be put off by the location because the immediate vicinity has everything you need (convenience store, money changer, internet cafe, restaurants etc.) and is just 5 minutes walk away from the monkey forest.

Service
Service provided is excellent. Staffs are helpful and polite all the time. They can arrange taxi bookings, car or scooter rentals for you. Breakfast is provided at the bakery which is situated at the doorstep of the hotel. Breakfast comes with tea or coffee and you get a choice of local food like rice or noodles; or your classic western stuffs like pancakes, french toast or eggs. Afternoon tea which consists of tea or coffee with a slice of cake it provided too.

Room Quality
Stayed on the ground floor units and it was clean, spacious and comfortable. Safe and fridge are provided but my room did not have a tv. Staffs clean the rooms everyday. Two bottles of mineral water are provided each day. Wifi is available throughout the whole vicinity.


Good experience overall as they are able to match up to what you are paying for.

What can't I say about Kakiang Bungalow ! The staff are polite and accommodating, there is unlimited hotel shuttle use in Ubud at your request (my favourite thing and most convenient), there is a super bakery with great meals located on the premises. The location itself is central to Ubud and minimart,atm and restaurants (Nomad,Ubu Rai ect.) But the best thing is the daily rate! It's cheap, very,very,very clean and very comfortable. Staff are attentive and respond quickly to requests. No its not 5 star (apart from the bungalows 2) We stayed in a normal run of the mil room my wife and I in one room and mother in-law and son the other and had no quarms at all. If there was anything at all I could pick at it would be the shower roses which need to replaced with faster flowing ones but that's being picky.
We loved this place and WILL be returning in October this year for our next Bali escape....Thankyou Kakiang we love you

Stayed 2 nites in the villa room no.1 facing the pool. Hotel was clean & tidy, bathroom was great with good ventilation.

Only downside was that staff was not really well-trained & could not offer much suggestions to good shopping/ tourist areas.

Do bring along mosquitoes repellient.

At first, we hadn't had any plan to stay here. So, it was my great luck to get such a wonderful room in Kakiang Bungalows. The upstair room had a great amazing view in the morning. Green field, colourful flowers, blue sky and the bright sun were all well-blended into one fantastic unforgetable panorama you could have on the room's balcony. It also had clean and tidy spacious room, with beautiful bathroom you could use in comfort, as if the place was made to pamper us all the time with no doubt. My big regret was I couldn't have stayed any longer than one night that time.

Room Tip: * The upstair rooms are completely so amazing, but the upstair room on the corner (of the buidings...

We had the upstair room and it was very clean and tidy. Considering the good rate of the room we booked, it came with breakfast and afternoon tea daily at the Japanese Bakery within its premises. Staff were friendly and helpful and helped us made a couple of calls to arrange spa appointments and kecak dance performance too. The hotel also provides drop off and pick up services to/ from ubud market and kecak dance in the evening, they were quite good with punctuality. Overall it is situated at a good location along the stretch of ubud shopping area, and yet not as busy and noisy. We dine at 2 of the restuarants opposite the hotel and they had some rice paddy field view by the balcony.
The downside of the hotel is probably the poor wifi connection in the room, basically just hard to get connection and we had to go to the reception area or the bakery when we needed to get internet connection. And also when the bathroom light/ fan switch was switched on, there was a 'sewage' smell coming out from the fan, not very pleasant if you intend to have a long nice soak in the bathtub which we never did, so the smell didnt really bother us.

Location - on the southern stretch of Ubud, about 20 minutes walk from the market square but only 5 minutes to monkey forest. Don't be put off by the location as Ubud's streets are full of shops right on the doorstep.

Also it is conveniently located next to a large supermarket which offers a really good selection of fresh and packaged food which is great for day trip snacks and lunches. Also a sanitary section for medicine, cleaning products the usual.

Decor/Environment - set between 50-100 metres off the road there are only two bungalows around a pool with the rest conventional hotel room style accommodation. There was plenty of flora along the walkways and a generally relaxing setting.

The pool has only a couple of loungers which would be problematic however i don't think people go to Ubud to sit by the pool. Also a number of loose drainage tiles around the pool were noticeable.

Room - room itself was clean, enough sockets but you need own adaptors. The air con worked well and there was a separate balcony and indoor seating area. The bathroom was disappointing, the cold water surprisingly was either very poor pressure or none while the hot worked well... very odd but in sweaty Bali cold is the one you want.

The bath looked tired and the shower looked cheap and there was a sewerage smell whe .showering which is never good. The room was cleaned in the day with no problems. Wi-fi was none existent in the room which was bad as it meant everything had to be planned over dinner in a restaurant or in the outside reception.

Staff - nice, polite and friendly. Helped ring some tour operators for me and arrange that one evening quite late for early the next morning. Rang me without prompt to wake me for my tour and were happy to answer question's. Only negative was that English was a bit rudimentary at times which made communication unclear.

Overall for the price cant really knock it. Good for a base camp not so good for a longer stay i suspect.

Room Tip: Check to see if Wi-fi works if your paying for it.

This hotel was booked on it's own basic website which in fact links into Agoda, so payment was taken in full in advance as with most Agoda bookings.
The hotel is on Jl Raya Pengoseken and is fronted by the Kakiang Bakery. Next to the bakery is a small parking area with security guard, then the hotel reception. Check in went smoothly and we were greeted with a small welcome drink and cold towel.
The hotel occupies a narrow walled plot sandwiched between other properties, with a long 2-storey block of rooms. At the end of the plot is a small pool with 4 sunbeds (towels provided on the sunbeds), then the 2 bungalows of the hotel's name.
We stayed in a room on the upper floor. The room was spotlessly clean and a decent size with a very very firm bed, in-room safe, TV with limited channels, and small fridge. The bathroom contained a bath and shower attachment, and toilet, and was a little on the dark side. Outside the bathroom was a mirror/sink. A hair dryer was provided as was a mossie-plug in, which the staff came to plug in every evening. Two bottles of water were provided daily. There was a balcony which looked out onto a small car park of the property next door.
Breakfast is ordered the night before by completing a breakfast card and placing outside your door by 3am - you can opt to have it upstairs in the Kakiang Bakery or pay 20000Rp to have it delivered to your room. You can choose the usual offerings of nasi/mie goreng or bubur ayam (chicken porridge), a continental breakfast (toast, jam and croissant), pancakes, or eggs, with either juice or fruit. Afternoon tea/coffee and a small slice of cake is also offered upstairs in the bakery between 3pm-5pm.
The hotel don't offer a laundry service, but over the road is the Super Laundry Service which really is super. There is also a Circle K mini-market, and a very cheap internet cafe (handy for online check ins) just over the road, as well as some nice enough restaurants in the vicinity.
The hotel seemed to be very popular with Japanese tourists, we were the only Westerners there the whole stay, and a lot of the hotel prices were in Yen. For instance they offered an airport transfer for 2500 JPY (which translated into 317000Rp).
Overall, nice enough, nice room, good location but for the same money in Ubud you can find somewhere equally good with better (rice field) views.
