“A little rice paddy oasis in central Ubud”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Spent 2 nights here and wish I could have stayed longer. Lovely hotel made up of small villas set around beautiful rice paddy fields with a basic restaurant and lovely pool. Less than 5 minutes walk into town and less than half the price of many of the town centre accommodation. Lovely staff, clean rooms and a helpful travel guide who organised my onwards trip. I'll definitely stay again.

Things to love in this hotel:
1. Great location: This hotel has 2 exit, one thru lobby in Jalan Bisma,second back exit you'll get out in Jalan Monkey forest. 2-5 mins walk and you'll dip into dining and shopping area.
2. Nice surrounding: It has small pool, small paddy field, gardens, small river/stream as your back ground.
3. Unique room decor. Each room has their own villas with Bali touch, large room and toilet.
4. Fantastic price: we got special deal on web at first night $19.5 and second night $38 with simple breakfast included.
The only downside is, the AC in our room was a bit noisy.Car park for 3-4 cars.
For all of the above factors, we will come visit here again.

Room Tip: Choose room in the back area

I couldn't figure out why this place had ratings all over the place until I arrived. It's like 4 different hotels all down one street. You can tell they have purchased or built hotels and sorta mushed them together. The location is pretty decent for your walk to town. The room we stayed in was OK. Probably decent for the price ($45/US) but not great. The bed was just ok and the shower sucked. I hate the Asian showers that just get the entire bathroom soaking wet. Build a reservoir already. Anyway, not a disaster but nothing romantic or great.

For a little over 10 pounds a night, we could not ask for anymore.
Beautiful location, central to all the 'action' yet in its own private gardens with a beautiful stream running through and a large paddy field close to the pool area. Incredibly picturesque and felt very Balinese, in design.
Our room was fan only but clean, well-maintained and for the price, we could not complain.
Delicious breakfast and good choice too.
Friendly and helpful staff, if a little pushy.
All in all, for value for money, I would be back.

We stayed 2 nights, in a double room. It was terrible and I would not go back. No idea how it gets a good trip advisor rating. Some points:
No hot water available in bathroom
No aircon (as advertised, some rooms did, but not ours)
No fly screens - so you cannot open windows for fresh air.
Ants in bathroom
Dust in corners/top of shelves, etc, and seems thorough cleaning not done regularly
Definitely felt old, worn, and tired.

When we stayed the pool area was under construction and so you could use it only if you wanted to listen to noisy construction. This really should be noted when booking.

The included breakfast was ok, it was 2eggs and two pieces of toast. Or the noodle option was a small plate of noodles.

Maybe if it was half the price I would expect this, but we were disappointed with this.

Nick's Pension was hard to find but it was worth it. The rooms are surrounded by nice gardens and a small river. It's very clean and the employees were helpfull regarding our needs. The bathroom was disapointing : just a bath and no real shower. The included breakfast was good and there are many choices of what to eat. Overall, it was nice but a little expensive for what we got.
