Reviewed March 30, 2013

Stayed in Artini 2 cottages: good location, big rooms but pretty dark. The owner might also want to refurbish the bathroom. We stayed almost a week and several times we woke up without running water. The room was also not made up once. The staff was very nice but the running water was really an issue. The owner might want to address this as well.

We stayed here for three nights as part of an Intrepid tour and had an excellent room right at the back of the complex on a small hill. There was only one room next to ours, which made it beautifully quiet and secluded. I would really recommend that you ask for this room. There was a small problem with ants in the room, but the hotel staff helped some insect spray. Hey you are almost in the jungle at the end of the day!

For safety there is a safety box at reception. The bedroom doors don't actually close fully and only lock with a large padlock!

The bedroom itself is large with huge double bed and a sink. The bathroom we had unfortunately smelt of drains and there is no overhead shower, just an attachment over the bath taps, so not much fun.

The is a large pool, with pretty stone carving water features, excellent for an afternoon cool off.

An excellent bite to eat is cafe aptly named Kaffe, 5mins down the street if you turn left out of the hotel.

Locationwise the hotel could not be better. Perfect was getting around any way in Ubud on foot.

Stayed here at the beginning and end of an Intrepid Trip. Great hotel set in really nice gardens and pool. Rooms were really nicely furnished and comfortable. Staff were helpful and welcoming. Location is central in Ubud as well and everything in walking distance. Recommend this place if your looking for a really nice hotel on a budget.

We stayed at Artini 2 cottages for 3 nights . We had previously stayed there with our two teenage daughters. Our cottage was air conditioned and very spacious. The staff were very friendly and helpful . Breakfast was basic but all we needed. Safety deposit boxes were available at reception. the gardens surrounding the cottages are beautifully kept. the pool is a great length for early morning laps. Artini 2 is in a great location , 5 minute walk to monkey forest and close to nice restuarants.

Room Tip: We had a room up on the hill looking down onto gardens , i would recommend it .

Hotel has a small sign off hanoman road in Ubud but the entrance leads into a lush garden and pool area. I stayed in a deluxe fan cooled room that I paid $50 us for online which I thought was expensive for Indonesia The room was large but with sink set on opposite wall as bath which was not convenient. The is a gas operated hot water heater that was a little tricky to figure out. You must turn hot water tap on with ignition button depressed. It's a 15 minute walk to mo key forest and about same to market. They overcharge for taxis to airport asking 250000 rupiah when going rate is 200000 or 50000 if you take shuttle. Just make your own arrangements as many taxis on street. Would recommend but ac would be nice. Intrepid does not pay extra few dollars for this as seems typical for that penny pinching company!!

I was booked into this hotel as a starting and finishing point on my Intrepid tour. What a surprise I got when I walked from the modest gate on the street down to the pool. A spectacular rock carving overlooking the pool. The grounds are very picturesque and very clean with lots of quirky statues throughout. The rooms are in many pavilions. The first room overlooked the pool. Very clean but basic bathroom facilities. A big ceiling fan kept the room cool. The second room was much bigger with a very spacious bathroom. There was only a pedestal fan, an air conditioner that did not work and there were no screens on the windows, so we left them closed due to the mossies. It was very hot overnight on this top floor room. The breakfast was lovely, banana or pineapple pancakes. The location was excellent, right in the middle of town I would not hesitate to stay here again. I would check out the fans/AC though

Room Tip: Check out the facilities for cooling

Staying at Artini 2 in Ubud on the Island of Bali is as close as anyone will get to paradise on earth. Through a narrow and unobtrusive gate on the street one descends the steps into quiet oasis of beauty and calm. The rooms are situated in several pavilions scattered throughout the grounds which are lush with tropical vegetation. The rooms as well as the garden are immaculately maintained. Breakfast is served by the pool. Both Asian and Western variety are served, the latter including fresh eggs made to order. The staffs is exceptionally friendly and competent. We have particularly memories of Gudug, Gusti, Putu, Ibu Jepun, Denny, Komang, Minggu and the rest. For those wishing to explore the Island in a private car with driver, we recommend Pak Ketut (the hotel will contact him for you) who will take you to your destination along scenic and less-travelled roads. He drives a very comfortable car and is very knowledgeable. The restaurant "Laba-Laba" next to the hotel serves excellent and inexpensive meals. Last but not least, Artini 2 maintains extremely reasonable prices and is top value for money.
