“Seen better days”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

we stayed in the Puri saron for 4 nights it what seemed to be the main block. We where on the 3rd floor(there is no lift) which was a bit of a pain. The room was dark, musty and tired. we couldnt use the wardrobe as it made our clothes smell. The bathrooms smelt very badly all the time unlike anywhere else we stayed in Bali. The saving grace is the staff who are helpful and the pool area - though dont expect to relax with the bar men playing awful music very loudly most of the time from 8am. Average breakfast and okay location, a cheap taxi ride to the main bars and restaurants and la plancha in front of the hotel doing good cold beers. We stayed in a lot of places in Bali and this is the only one we felt the need to complain about. For my money this one is well overpriced - I have stayed in better rooms in most hostels for a lot less money.

My friend and I stayed there for 7 nights. We had an amazing time. The staff are so friendly, the breakfast delicious and it is right on the beach. There was never a day we didn't go to the pool bar and chill at the pool. You almost feel like you are the only ones there as it is really quiet however we always met people at the pool. You are close to markets and shops. The rooms nothing special but we weren't there to spend all day in the room. We will be back.

We stayed here from the 24th Dec for 2 weeks and found this hotel very typical for Bali after visiting the Island for the past 10 years. Probably more a Bali 3 star not 4.
We had a bungalow near the pool which was lovely. Definately recommend that. The room size was good and the bathroom quite large. Had been refurbished so was pleasant. The furnishings were sparse but adequate, no DVD player though. Bed was a very hard 4 poster. Linen changed daily and the towels were OK some even white and fluffy.
Internet access was good with wi-fi in the room.
Breakfast was very basic and not much change over the 2 weeks but from what I have seem quite typical in this price range in Bali. Dont expect Australian big variety breakfasts because you wont get it.
There was noise from the fire crackers but it didnt go on for long periods of time( besides New Years Eve) - Might bother some though. The noise from the local night club seemed louder on the Friday and Saturday night but didnt bother us any other night.
Outdoor seating furniture could do with revamping but you didnt have to fight for a pool lounge which was great.Overall a pleasant stay in an older style hotel.

Room Tip: Bungalows near the pool

the only saving grace was the kind lady in sales - who extended our stay by two nights in peak season - thanks to the rescheduling goof ups by our airline.

we booked the hotel for the fact that it seemed to be on the beach and due to its location in chic seminyak.
perish the thought.

the lobby is dull and unwelcoming. completely lacking in energy and atmosphere. staff is hampered by their lack of fluency in english.


we had asked for a room with a view and were given one facing the offices. the option offered to us was on the second floor with no lifts - only staircase access and with a boring garden view which we refused.

the pool / restaurant were a good four minute walk away. the ocean is just beyond the pool but the beach is dirty and overflowing with local vendors. no private beach here.

hotel cleanliness and service left much to be desired.
we were horrified to return late evening to find our toilet overrun with dead locusts !!

the promised wi-fi did not work in the rooms and there was no mobile network connectivity - unless one stepped out of the room.

breakfast was boring and basic and we had ants for company everyday.

the height of cheapness was the charges they levied for internet usage and print outs !!

am sure there are better options in seminyak. take those. not this one.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the garden on the ground floor if you must

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.
