Rumah Jepun
Ranked #121 of 602 Ubud B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Ideal location and a very clean and beautiful retreat. Julie is an excellent host and cannot do enough to help you out and let you know about local events and things to do. The accommodation is very quiet and relaxing but just moments away from Monkey Forest Road. Highly recommended.

Just off Monkey Forest Road you don't expect to find a jewel at the end of the pathway. But Rumah Jepun is just that, a delightful 'find' in the heart of Ubud. Although just steps from the shops, monkeys, and pulsing night-life, this intimate retreat will soothe your soul. Both rooms look out over a tropical garden. The gurgling stream provides nature's background music. The rooms are well appointed and impeccably clean with beautiful bathrooms and refreshing air conditioning. Breakfast is served on your terrace by smiling staff who are eager to please. And Julie, owner and host extraodinaire, is always ready with suggestions that will add unexpected delights to your stay. I feel so fortunate to have found this little paradise. Julie takes hospitality and service to a whole new level. I will be back!

Room Tip: Rumah Jepun has two rooms that are nearly identical. One is on the side of the stream so the water f...

I was lucky enough to be told about Rumah Jepun by a fellow traveller, you, dear reader, have the great good fortune to find it thru 'tripadvisor'!
Rumah Jepun is a 'homestay' tucked 2 minutes away from the bustling Monkey Forest Road and is an oasis of peace. It has the essentials: cosiness, great A/C and Wi-Fi together with comfort, cleanliness and a warm welcome from Julie and her helpers.
It's in a great location, set in a beautiful garden leading down to the nearby river and has a picture-book patio on which to eat breakfast or wind down in the evening listening to the natural sounds of Bali.
I loved it there, I checked in for 2 nights & stayed for 4! Thanks Julie.

Room Tip: Room nearest the river has slightly better views onto the garden.
