Primera Hotel Seminyak
Ranked #91 of 148 Hotels in Seminyak
Reviewed December 19, 2012

FaveHotels are a known budget hotel chain and as a budget hotel chain you get a small room which is very clean and has a comfortable bed - which might be sufficient for people who are planning on spending all of their time out partying or surfing.

However, the lack of soundproofing is the main problem especially when combined with the tiled floors which seem to amplify any noises in the corridors outside. Plus they hire a live band to play in the downstairs bar and it was louder than my television on the second floor.

Another let-down was the lack of twenty-four hour room service which was a little surprising but I suppose you get what you pay for.

As a light sleeper if the FaveHotel was empty and quiet then I'd say it's a great bargain.. however given your experience depends entirely on factors outside of your control (such as loud neighbours or a live band) I'd probably try and give it a miss and aim for a hotel which can offer a more consistent night's sleep.

Room Tip: If you plan on sleeping early then definitely choose a room higher up to avoid the sound from the mu...

Thank you so much for writing this review. This hotel is located in a great night life area. For a quiet area, we recommend our sister fave hotel Umalas, also located in Seminyak but surrounded by rice fields instead of clubs and restaurants.

decided to to try this new hotel for 3 nights 28 sept -1 Oct 2012. nice new hotel, clean, location is very good, in the middle of hectic Seminyak. walking distance to almost everythings like you can read in anyone reviews. the staffs were young, at first she can not give us a near room for 2 rooms i booked for me and my parents. after a looong talk, then she gave us rooms in one floor, yeah better than got a different floors. as i bring my baby, we can ask for a free baby cot but we have to bay his towel. good breakfast for an Indonesian taste, everyday changed the menu so we didn't feel bored, there also an egg station where you can order egg as you like. there are a basement to park our rental car with a good staff.
the minus : there are some gap between glass window with the FAVE HOTEL sign that we across everytime we walk from the lift to the room, it is very dangerous for walking baby and toddler as they can slip into it and falling down to the road.
then, the water is PINK. can you imagine a pink water running from the tap? when we asked the staff they said it's the local water company doing some repairment. i live in Indonesia forever and never get a pink water from the company. the joke is, they make it pink so it can be matched with all the pink themed hotel color :P
will i stay again? probably, with its location, cleanliness and breakfast in a cheap price.

Room Tip: if you bring kids, be careful with the upper rooms

Thanks for your kind review. We will add additional fences to the glass window to ensure guest
safety. Pink water has never happened to us before as well…We do have filters set up on all pipes
to sift out any sediment from the government’s water supply but I assure you its not to change the
color to pink

FaveHotels are a budget hotel chain (similar to Ibis) in Indonesia and Malaysia - they are cheap, clean and well-located but no frills. As we only came from Singapore to Seminyak to attend a wedding and enjoy the cool (but pricey) beach clubs and restaurants there, we knew we only needed a simple hotel for sleeping in - so Favehotel did the job for us. However, if you are travelling from Europe or Aus and want to stay in a really nice place which should be part of the Bali experience, I would recommend paying more and staying in a fancier place than Favehotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room away from the street since the late night bars are very noisy.

Happy to have you stay with us! If you would like to do a combo of budget hotel stay and a luxury hotel, please check out our sister private villa chain Kamuela Villas – there are 3 locations in Bali (Ubud, Sanur and Seminyak). So you can bundle your stay to try the best of all that Bali has to offer.

Only stay here if you enjoy being woken or not being able to sleep due to paper thin walls and very noisy tiled hallways the echo terribly..
This hotel caters mainly for noisy inconsiderate groups that yell down the corridors all night.
We had security up several times during this sleepless night..
Moral of the story we checked out early..!!!!!!

Room Tip: No rooms are quiet...!!!

Dear Darren A,

Please allow me this opportunity to apologize for the inconvenience you experienced during your stay. I really appreciate your time taken to let us know your experience staying with us at TripAdvisor. This encourages us to make improvement on reducing our noise level.

As our hotel is located on Dyana Pura, it is surrounded by clubs, restaurants and bars. At night the streets are bustling with people and events - this noise does affect some of our guest rooms. We have added our sleep-concierge at night to monitor the guest floor. Our sleep concierge will walk around during the night and advise any of our guests if they are found making noise either in the room or on the corridor to reduce their noise. We also share this feedback to our project team to look into improvement on our building which gives straight impact to reduce noise level.
Our Tower A, which the quieter room in the compound can be requested upon making your reservation and guests who book directly on our favehotel website get first priority in that tower as they have the option to mention it at the time of booking instead of at check in.

I hope that with those improvement my teams are making, you will still give us the opportunity to accommodate and serve you in the future. Thank you.

Best Regards,
Komang Artana
General Manager

Stayed there for one night in April. Hotel is new, clean and nice. Breakfast was surprisingly good for me. Only grouse is that the room window soundproofing is not up to mark. Had the bad luck of staying on a Saturday night, and the noise from the live band disturbed my sleep. Otherwise, a good choice on any other day.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to noise, ask for a room that is as far away from the live-band stage as possib...

We are happy that you enjoyed the breakfast and our hotel! Yes, on Saturday night this
area has a great nightlife and it can be hard to sleep for some. We try to allocate our
light sleeping guests to the towers further in the back which are more quiet.

This is a great hotel in a really good location. Small pool with only a few loungers but also usually not that busy. Staff are really friendly and helpful and beds are very comfortable. Very close to all the main gay clubs and walking distance to the beach with lots of cheap shopping in between.
Now the down side, the breakfasr, while diible is probably the most boring I have had anywhere. They do do omeletes to go with the inadequate other foods but it is so understaffed at breakfast that you might have to wait a while for it. Bif tip is when you order it wait there for it as waiting their turn does not appear to be a usual practice in Bali

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor if you want any view

First of all I think this is a very good value for money hotel (especially when booked through the internet).
The room was small but clean and adequate. The location is superb. It is near the beach , (gay) nightlife, and shopping areas. There is a nice pool.
Breakfast was fine. I think you get quite a lot for the price. Ofcourse a certain open atmosphere was missing etc. but it is just a smart fully equiped hotel
You do hear the neighbours and everyone trotting down the alleys...
