“A dreadful business hotel”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

A pretty average, past-its-prime beach hotel which, though superficially pretty, falls short of international standards. Mould in bathrooms around tiles, dripping taps, ill-fitting doors and peeling paint. Couple this with no wif-fi in rooms (and this in the 21st century catering to business people) , little sound-proofing so I had the dubious excitement of the noise of a drunken party of Australian women, and a knock on the door at 2am and the offer of a massage with a "happy ending"! Disappointing breakfast, and a bland, tasteless dinner. Checked out after one night and moved to a hotel with in-room wifi. Very disappointing.

Room Tip: Cannot be recommeded to busines stravellers because of the non availability of wifi in rooms

booked into this hotel but only stayed one night even though we had paid for 4. The room was apalling, dark and dismal, musty smelling, cheap shabby furniture, stained lampshades. The linen was brownish and crumpled and had what looked like blood stains on it, this was changed, but I did'nt find out until I went to bed that the pillow absolutely stank. The bathroom although it looked clean was very shabby and when the light was switched on full of insects.
The grounds were unkempt and shabby.
Staff when we booked out were not bothered until we were actually leaving when the manager offered us a free upgrade, we declined the offer and moved to the next door hotel which was not much more expensive but wonderful.

Am currently staying at the Puri Saron hotel and really wish I wasn't. The hotel is really run down, outdated, grubby and simply not pleasant.
My room looks like it needs a good scrub and a lick of paint. Everything in the room looks dirty, especially the disgusting grey (formerly white) towels. The bathroom is tatty and is not really clean. The bath leaks water all over the floor. The furnitu looks beaten up and old.
There is only wifi in reception and bar/pool area. 
The pool area is unkempt and looks messy.
The only decent thing is the beachfront location... however, that simply does not make up for the rooms, which are also vastly over priced. Its only a bit better than some of the nicer homestays.

Booked into the hotel, was put into a room not fit for humans...didnt sleep the first night,managed to get moved for an extra us$20.00 per night..Breakfast was ordinary and at best barely acceptable. Beds were old and dirty....and while staff were Bali beautiful...there was a clear message dont ask for help or complain, we dont care was the catch cry of the day. First and last time we will ever step foot into this hotel. We usally visit this wonderful island two times a year ...and I can honestly say.....don't even consider this hotel. The area is fab though with great restaurants and bars around the place.

Room Tip: Another Hotel is the only tip

Im not usually one to complain but after staying there for 3nights in a musky smelling room was enough. Not to mention the toilet that didnt flush every morning and had to call maintaince about 3 times in 3days-not good! This hotel would be ok as a stop over and to be fair it's in a great location(backs right onto the beach). The staff were very nice, polite but the standard wasnt what i was hoping for and really put a downer on my stay in Seminyak. Ok if your a schoolie, backpacker but i think its probably overpriced for that market. Had an issue with the shuttle bus after in kuta shopping for the day didnt pick us up..waited around for 1/2hr so ended up paying for a taxi back to the hotel. My pillow on the first night was sooo smelly and just felt dusty, dirty and rundown.Ended up leaving very dissappointed as this was my first trip to Bali. On to Ubud which was amazing and definitely got my value for money in that Villa.

Room Tip: We stayed in the garden rooms on the bottom floor which seemed to be the older rooms. Maybe the othe...

First time at this hotel, and probably wont be the last. Not for long stays but perhaps 5 nights maximum. Rooms are clean and are being renovated, wouldnt pay the extra for a deluxe room, the standard is fine.Close to beach, and the beers are much cheaper on the new "bean bags". Staff are very helpfull and friendly. Breakfast...a bit "iffie"...not fans on the ceiling to keep the flies away. Overall not bad , not brilliant, but would stay again.

Room Tip: All seemed fine ...air con very good...

Staying at Puri Saron Hotel was fine for one night, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who is used to upmarket accommodation. It was disappointingly below my usual standards, but would be a good place if you are a backpacker type, or on a budget. The excellent location right on the beach and the very friendly staff made up for the general run-down feeling of the hotel. My room on the ground floor was old- it smelt musty, there were loads of mosquitos especially in the bathroom which was old (but clean) and poky, there was no main light in the room, and at night, dim lamps were all that were available to try and see in the room. I was very uninspired to spend any amount of time in the room. The buffet breakfast was mediocre. The gardens were nice to walk through, and the pool looked okay (I didn't swim in it). if you get what you pay for, then this hotel is probably at the quality you would expect for this price. Don't set your expectations too high, and if you are on a budget, then this is a good option close to the beach.
