Reviewed October 4, 2013

Good location in centre of Ubud, great guesthouse with paddy rice view, but the staffs not helpfull much and not too friendly when we ask for bike rent, suspicious when my friend come in.
Breakfast is poor only one choice. Only good for short stay

I went twice in one month's time to this guesthouse. Very friendly staff, very clean,everything works,well , nice garden, clean pool,internet works well in the rooms..I would definitely go back.
The more expensive rooms, are worth the 5$ more!!, you should try to get one of those, they are new! No television though...

Room Tip: the rooms with air condition are newer, and cleaner..

A lovely guest house located conveniently in central Ubud. Love the banana pancake in the morning!

I stayed here for two nights in the AC superior room with a view of the paddy field right infront of my room. I couldn't ask for more! Everything in the room works fine.. The sheets are clean. cant say the same about the spacious toilet though, which have a built-in shower tub, however there aren't any jumpy shower or broken AC. So im grateful! Staffs are extremely kind as well!

The pool is at the back of the receptionist, a layout that is common among Balinese home. Pool is rather small but c'mon you are in Ubud!! Go take a stroll on the streets, hit up some local warungs for a cup of coffee and local food! The pool is just nice for couples or a group of friends to get together to cool off a hot day.

Nonetheless, my experience here in Ubud is short but charming! Safety is pretty much secure although you might get a few glances off the streets from strangers when you are strolling wearing short shorts and tops in bright colors alone with an uncommon haircut in this part of the world, as if you are on a runway modelling for the new E.Saab collection... Ok fine, maybe that's just me.

Kunang Kunang guesthouse is highly recommended for a short stay here in ubud, its central, convenient, serene and I am missing the paddy fields already!

Best,
WeeHan

I booked this hotel a week or less before I arrived in Ubud. The room was spectacular (the superior deluxe, I believe) and the whole hotel was beautiful. It was quiet and peaceful. This felt like a genuine Bali experience type of place. The hotel is run by a family. The boys are so young, but I found them to be helpful and attentive to my needs. The breakfast is good and filling. They deliver tea to your patio or balcony every morning and put offerings to the gods out in front of your room as well. This might be a common practice throughout Bali, but I love they way they do it at this accommodation.

I am the type of traveler who likes to talk with the locals rather than ignore them, so I was also respectful of their space as they live on the premises. I met some travelers who come to stay here every year. I would love to return to Kunang-kunang Guesthouse. In fact, I booked 5 nights here and then went to another hotel down the street that had better reviews only to be horrified by that hotel. Kunang-kunang was able to take me back in for the remainder of my stay in Ubud and made the transition back to this hotel easy. I stayed in a simpler room but it was more than adequate and beautiful.

Room Tip: Upstairs without A/C is doable. The room over the reception desk is exquisite. I liked the rooms ups...

The guesthouse is located in a good central location. It was just a walking distance to places were visitors wish to go. Staying in the guesthouse is worth the value of money. The staff were so friendly and helpful in providing assistance if asked. We were served with a pot of tea every morning and a simple breakfast served at the balcony while having a good view of the paddy field. It was such a peaceful stay.

Room Tip: Just ask the reception or the person on duty and they would gladly assist you with your preference.

After reading many reviews on various accommodations in Bali, it astounds me that people are so 'precious' as to whine about 'had to ask for toilet paper', 'staff were not doing enough for me', 'bathroom was not spotless', etc etc. if you want 3/4/5 star service then pay for it! The Balinese are so very peaceful and calm, forgiving of our 'western' ways. If you want a small guest house where you will find a fresh pot of tea on your balcony each morning (and yes, the cups are not very clean), frangipani flowers adorning the staircase to your room and a smile every morning then book a stay at kunang kunang. When in Bali......... (oh and the food at Kafe just across the road is divine!)

This was my third visit to Kunang Kunang, twice as a solo traveller and once with my 80 year old mother who loved the atmosphere here. I would highly recommend this quiet traditional guesthouse overlooking rice paddy fields, off the street in a good central location in Hanoman Street. It is in walking distance to Yoga Barn, Monkey Forest, Palace, shops and many good restaurants. Staff are quiet, friendly and helpful. Very reasonable price for rooms, both standard and superior, are clean and comfortable. There is no safe but a locked drawer in each room. The pool is smallish but clean and refreshing after a day out. Breakfast is adequate - a set menu that changes daily. Tours can be booked through the reception. Checkin/checkout is quick & easy. Try it, you won't be sorry. Good value for money! I will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a ground level room if you cannot walk up stairs. Standard - large comfortabl...
