green in my eyes, nature's sounds in my hears
nothing else but peace

I kinda like it. Although I have to let you know that you don;t have to go through Jalan Bisma proper to get to this property. Just go to the field and head up (towards the Palace) and take the first turning on the left. Be careful, some of the locals might try to trick into getting a motorcycle ride by telling you its far far away but actually its just in the lane. No matter, its a good exercise, and the rates are pretty good for the budget traveler too.

Nicks Pension is peaceful and green and very well located next to great eateries on Jalan Bisma itself. I am probably going to stay here if I ever come to Ubud again. The Pizza restaurant on Bisma is particularly good.

We only had 2 nights at Nick's Pension and I am sorry that we did not have more time at this hotel. We had a cute little bungalow with patio that overlooked the rice paddies, very quiet and private. The price was excellent for such a clean, bright, breakfast included, hotel. Large bathroom with hot water for the shower, AC, ceiling fan, in-room safe as well as a locked cupboard and crisp white sheets on the bed. Staff were extremely nice, always having a smile and a "hello" when we passed by. The room was cleaned daily with fresh towels given.
Nick's Pension was very close to town, yet we felt like we were in the country. Easy 5 minute walk to town, to all of the sights, shopping and of course the many restaurants offered in Ubud. There is also a restaurant at Nick's Pension which always served excellent tasty food when we ordered.
Nice pool, clean with lots of loungers. You can order drinks and food around the pool and service was good. Breakfast selection each morning was good, with fresh fruit, coffee or fruit smoothies, and generous sized main breakfast meals (indonesian and western fare). Service was always fast and friendly.
The grounds are beautiful and if you walk out the backside of the hotel it is like an oasis. The back pathway is also another way of getting into town. I do not think that there is a bad room at Nick's Pension.
A couple of minor issues, but worth noting.....trying to pack lightly I had not brought a blow dryer and unfortunately they did not have any to loan out (such a small item that you would think all hotels would have one on hand, even if they charged a damage deposit in case of
breakage); second issue was one evening we needed a taxi to go and meet friends who were staying out of town and when we asked at the front desk for them to call us a taxi we were told to just go out on the main road and find our own. It certainly wasn't hard to find a taxi in Ubud, just the principle that if we ask for assistance they should be able to help us out. We were expecting that they would have a list of reputable taxi drivers which they would have called for us. As fate has it, we actually found a taxi driver, basically just down the street from Nick's, who turned out to be the best taxi driver we had during our whole vacation. He was a a very good driver, extremely interesting to talk to and also agreed to come back and get us when we were finished our visit with friends (now that was service!). Should you require a taxi driver, or tour guide, who has excellent english language skills, is friendly, and interesting, his name is Kadek Agus and can be reached on his mobile at # 081 139 9363 (e.ubudkadek@yahoo.com).
We would definitely stay at Nick's Pension again should we return to Ubud (which we plan to do one day). I cannot imagine that you would be disappointed should you stay here.

Nicks Pension is a really nice place to stay. It is well located with a quick access to the monkey forest and the city centre. But it is still very quiet.
The rooms, facilities and the staff were really nice.
Furthermore they offered me a very reasonable price. Do not book via booking.com or similar sites as you cannot bargain anymore.
They only thing which disturbed my stay were children from the staff members who played at and in the pool every day. They were really loud and threw shoes in the pool and so on. Unfortunately the staff didn't see that a lot of people felt disturbed by this.
All in all it was a pleasant stay!

This was a little jewel of a place! I liked it, in part, because it is not a big resort hotel. The integration of the guest bungalows with the surrounding rice paddies and river was very appealing. The people working there were very friendly and professional. Any needs I had were taken care of very promptly. I also liked the central location - close to Ubud, but still very country feeling. Close enough to walk to lots of great food and things to do.

Room Tip: The less expensive rooms involve more of a downhill (and then uphill) walk from the restaurant and p...
