“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

I stayed here with my partner in August for 2 nights. We stayed in the new Tower rooms and paid 220kR per night (this didn’t include breakfast or A/C as it is an option for budget travellers). The staff were all lovely, the pool and restaurant were fantastic, and we had spectacular views of the rice paddies from our room (although you’ll need a head for heights as the staircase was around the outside of the building!). The hotel’s north entrance is next to the Monkey Forest so it is ideally located. You may also rent scooters or bicycles from reception. A very good hotel.

Room Tip: Second tower room has bathroom downstairs

We had a very clean, spacious room with a great rice field view. the service was very helpful and friendly, breakfast delivered from the enclosed restaurant. Tegal Sari is a recommendation for Ubud for a very good price.

Everything is in walking distance - the town center, Yoga Barn, Monkey Forrest - and still they have a free transport service.

Despite being a bit sceptical, we decided to try this hotel only because of the constantly outstanding reviews. We were not disappointed. Bear in mind that it is not a 5 star hotel but a very personalised hotel in a good position. Yes the booking system and prepayment is a little annoying but persevere.

The staff are excellent and that is probably their secret....great personal service. Each and every staff member makes an effort to ensure your stay is enjoyable. Nothing is too much trouble and everything handled efficiently and with a smile.

We stayed in a Super Deluxe room overlooking the rice paddies. For some inexplicable reason I just love looking over the paddies as there is always something to see and something going on - from the farmer each morning and afternoon, birds, ducks etc there is always activity but the aspect is very calming and relaxing.

The tariff doesn't include breakfast, but this can be ordered from the hotel's café at a very cheap rate and delivered to your room No room delivery charge and no minimum order, so we also had a few meals delivered to the room as well. Nice food, not a huge range, but very tasty and very reasonably priced. They do not charge a room delivery fee- so why not eat on your own terrace?

We did look at the new 1 bedroom pool villa. This is a lovely villa, marred only by the fact that the 2 bedroom villa next door overlooks a large part of the villa, particularly the pool area. They have planted bamboo as a screen so it will screen off the view eventually, but sadly I would not want to be overlooked all the time. The balcony overlooking seemed to be off the bedrooms, but every time we went past, there was always someone sitting on that balcony and looking directly into the 1 brm pool area. At approx. AUD$150 per night, I thought it was very good value.

In short, I would add my accolades to the continuing chorus and would definitely return in a flash.

Room Tip: Our super deluxe room was up one flight of stairs. If you had trouble walking or problems with tak...

This is a great hotel and represents excellent value for money. The best things for me were the helpfulness of the staff and the setting. It is a strange layout - long and thin and effectively runs between two rice fields with views over to Monkey Forest. Best bit was dusk, watching the bats and owls come out and listening to the frogs. It felt like you were in the middle of the countryside but you're not - you are 5/10 minutes walk from the main shopping drag and there are numerous restaurants etc in the immediate vicinity if you choose. Breakfast was great value. Yes, the booking process is a bit slow but that's probably because they're so popular and rightfully so. Stick with it, allow 48 hours or so for a response and book your stay!!

Room Tip: If a green rice paddy view is important - check with hotel when they harvest (3 times a year I think...

It's a gem in Ubud even for them budget travelers. I got a decent superior room with ricefields view for only IDR 350.000 or $35. It's such a great experience waking up to the view of green paddies with the sounds of birds and ducks. There's a lot of thing you can do here such as swimming (they have a beautiful swimming pool), having massage, trekking. The staffs are very helpful. They can take you everywhere in Ubud with the shuttle car - Monkey Forest, Ubud Art Market, even take you to a recommended Balinese spiritual healer. Many good restaurant around the place as well. I'm gonna go back to Tegal Sari for sure!

Room Tip: Any room with ricefields view is fine.

We came here for our tenth anniversay. The staff put flowers and a greeting card in our room. It was very thoughtful and it shows their desire to make our stay a memorable one. I can say that the managements of this hotel take it seriously to make our stay memorable...so we appreciate that.

The room was great. The rates are without breakfast. That is the only downside to this hotel. Although they do provide breakfast package which you can choose from. The view are very calming and the serenity is great for relaxing and romance. When you open your window or stand at your balcony early in the morning you will be greeted by birds chirping and ducks. The padi field view is very pleasing.

I would recommend this place for those who intend to stay in ubud. Its a great place with an affordable rates.
