“Everything's fine - but the monkey!!!”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

We stayed here for three nights.
Good things first:
The bungalows are nice with nice balcony or terrasse.
The Nasi Goreng for breakfast is good and you also get fresh fruits and fresh juice.
They bring you fresh tea every morning to your balcony.
You can walk to the city center (10-15 min).

But now the less nice things:
The bathroom is quite old and you only get hot water for a quick shower.
But way the worst thing:
They keep a monkey in a cage in the garden!!!! Alone in a cage without a tree or gras or any nature at all!
This made us feel sad everytime we saw it..... So "sad" when we went to breakfast, "sad" when we came Home in the afternoon and "sad" again when we left for dinner.
I'm really sorry to write this, because the people and the location were really nice, but we wouldn't go there again -because of the monkey.

I know Allan and Siti since 2007 (through business) but never stayed at Tiing Gading. Last Christmas finally I made it and two friends of mine joined me to stay at Tiing Gading for Christmas and New Year.
Already the cosy welcome of Allan and Siti and their staff made me feel home. Tiing Gading is a place where you are part of a big family. Chatting to Allan and Siti and receiving information where to go and what to see was very helpful. Tiing Gading is very close to Monkey Forest Rd and just a 5 to 10 minutes’ walk away you will find quite a large supermarket where you can find all you need, including souvenirs at the top floor.
Tiing Gading also offers airport pick-up and tours.
The food was marvellous, fresh and very tasty. Look out for the food marked with a *, that are Tiing Gading's specials. The banana pancake and black rice pudding (need to be pre-ordered the night before) have been my favourite.
The garden, pool and rooms were cleaned every day and spotless.
Thank you for a very pleasant stay to Allan, Siti & all the staff at Tiing Gading.
Happy New Year 2012 and all future years.

I knew my husband and I would love this place when I booked ... and I was right! Tiing Gading has good, clean affordable accommodation in a tranquil, beautiful setting. Allan, Siti and their staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and to drop you into the city centre when required. The food was divine and we overindulged each day.

The couple built the comfortable bungalows themselves around twenty years ago, they have therefore aged a little but they still have beautiful wooden furniture and lovely balconies attached ... so cosy and homely.

I cannot speak too highly of this place and it's beautiful, generous owners. Nothing is too difficult for them. My only regret is that we should have spent our entire time in Bali there - much nicer than the villas in Seminyak.

What a great find! Allan and Siti are generous and wonderful hosts, supported by a very friendly and helpful team. We booked two rooms and were delighted with our upstairs bungalows overlooking the beautiful gardens. Scrumptious food and we really enjoyed our cooking class with Siti. It is an easy walk to the centre of Ubud and Monkey Forest Road. Nothing was too much trouble and we appreciated Siti going out of her way to pick our stranded daughter and partner when their car broke down at night in pouring rain. Really enjoyed our chats with Allan. Overall, a fantastic stay and we’ll be going back.

Room Tip: Upstairs bungalows have lovely views of the gardens from covered verandahs.

What we will remember most about our stay at Tiing Gading Bungalows is how accommodating and friendly Alan and Siti, Wayan and the rest of the staff are. No request seemed too hard and they were good at anticipating our needs such as supplying umbrellas when it rained etc. By the end of our two week stay we felt like friends of the family and I wish all hotels could be like this!

The bungalows are fairly secluded but close enough to Ubud for us to walk to all the main attractions and shops including supermarkets, the Monkey Forest, the market and the post office. It was easy to arrange transport when we were going further afield.

The food in the restaurant is impressive and good value and the included breakfast is great with fresh fruit, fruit juice, tea and a choice of nasi goreng, a jaffle or a pancake etc. With Hanoman street not far away, there are plenty of other dining options within walking distance if you fancy a change.

We enjoyed our stay so much I'm reluctant to mention anything negative but to be fair, we did find the room a little bit cramped with the extra bed in the room for our daughter. We also found the bathroom a little bit more primitive than expected as already mentioned in other reviews. These are small complaints however, when taking into account the superb hospitality from the owners and staff.

We would definitely come back next time we are in Ubud.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are probably a little bit more private.

My wife and I stayed here after looking up reviews of lots of places in Ubud on Trip Advisor. We were'nt dissapointed. Ting gading is good value for money. Alan and Siti were very good hosts and looked after us during our three day stay. The cottages are cute, comfortable and quiet. The location is handy to the main central area of Ubud. Maybe a 10 minute walk. We walked back from the market area at night on several occasions with no problems at all. We ate in one night and Siti cooked us a lovely vegetarian meal. She also runs cooking classes. Breakfasts were included and were good. There is a pool and a thermos of hot tea appears outside your door every morning.

Room Tip: We had an upstairs room. These look out over the garden and have a nice little balcony

The hotel is nothing short of perfect, the warmth felt off siti and Allan is second to none and made me and Sarah look forward to rebooking at another point in the future!
The service is so so friendly .....
If you like good food without the fuss come here... Having trained as a chef for some years I am glad to say the food here is the best I have eaten from ANY Indonesian resturant.. Looking forward to our cooking classes on the final couple of days of our stay
Thank you for the warmth and family feel
