Primera Hotel Seminyak
Ranked #90 of 148 Hotels in Seminyak
Reviewed February 17, 2014

I think that this place is great if you consider how much you pay. Seminyak is an expensive town and it is hard to find budget options with ac and pool. Favehotel and grandmother are the only two which have all that and you don't have to pay a fortune. Breakfast is also included at fave.
The flat-tv have satellitechannels with animal planet and discovery and it's actually a real blanket and not just a thin one and the bathroom and shower works great. Although, the restaurant is quite expensive.

But obviously, fave is a backpacker and budgtoption. If you want luxury, this is not the place for you. But if you are used to the backpacker places in Bali, this place will feel like ritz. (Lol)
Honestly I think that fave is the only backpacker option in Seminyak if you want a pool. (Small pool though, and a bit away from the beach)

I'm currently IN the hotel (just checked in today) to a room with a leaky AC. After having it 'repaired' once, it later leaked even more and my partner slipped and fell. When I went to the front desk, almost no care. Showed me a different room... Literally in front of a wall and above the pool which was noisy. Upon check in, we asked for ice, which we had to pay for, and was given a half full bucket. When we called the front desk, they said they would send up another. Never did. Now, I continue to soak up the water and wait. We are both in the hotel business in New York and wouldn't allow this to happen to paying guests. Even though this is a budget hotel, you never know who your guests are. We travel many countries a year, 10 last year alone and this is, annoyingly, terrible service. A big disappointment.

This buget hotel is very clean
With nice staf and good small. But clean bathrooms
Try for a back room so u are not on the main road.
The main road is the gay street of bali with lots of small bars and resturants.
This hotel has a parking for your motor bike.
The sheets towels are very nice.
Breakfas like most buget hotels is not so good only whent to breakfast 1 time. Not worth the efort to go.
i have been to bali 5 times and i always try to rate hotels by price cleanes and frendly staf
So for me this hotel has it all.
if u are age 18 to 33 yes you would love it.
The pool is ok.
But i would not stay here again
I only stay here 5 nights as the hotel i stay in was full.
but fave thanks sorry i am to old for you ;)

Dear Fattyboy8,
Your comment is very much appreciated. Like other guest's comment, we have worked with our project team on how to minimize the effect of outside noise and our guest room corridor, which will be expected to complete by Oct this year. In the mean time, our Tower A is the tower for less noise impact and guest can put the request online prior to check in. And your compliments to our staff services have been shared on our briefing. Your comment towards our breakfast buffet has been passed to our F&B team. In addition to our buffet breakfast, we also provide a la carte breakfast menu with affordable price. Feel free to ask to one of our waiter or waitress. Thank you.
Thank you for your stay with us.

If you are not looking for anything fancy, this is an excellent choice. The hotel offers most basic things you need - clean room, toilet, linen, free wifi and friendly staff. Wifi reception in room is good enough for emails, but not for skype. If you step into the lobby, you can voice chat on skype, without much interruptions.

Hotel offers a conference hall that can seat around 40 - 50 people comfortably (they may have more conference rooms, but didnt check it out).

The breakfast isnt anything to write home about. If you are particular about a good breakfast, choose the option of just the room without breakfast and step outside and grab your choice. Hotel gives two half litre bottles of water free everyday. Ice is chargeable @ Rupiah 14,000 (less than one euro), for one huge bucket that can run a party for 10!

The hotel is located on a touristy street that has restaurants, shops, massage (also within hotel premises). Travelling to other parts isn't a problem as metered taxis are available in plenty. Taxi to the airport costs around Rupiah 70,000 (less than 5 Euros).

Good value for money for budget travelling/ conferences.

Fave hotel is one of the best hotels within budget, located in the central areas of seminyak, indonesia. The room size is slightly small, but the facilities are good. The swiming pool is amazing and the restaurant is good, just opposite the Indian restaurant.

We showed up in Bali At 10pm without a hotel. Had the taxi take us to FaveHotel as an agent checking us in at airport in Maylasia said he loves the Fave. We were pleasently surprised! After all the research & reviews we read on Bali we just didnt know where to stay as we are on a Budget! The Hotel was clean, breakfast & dinning area are outdoors & lovely! Staff are friendly. Our room was small but shower was good! Wifi free.im always worried being on a budget what kind of hotel we will have & I was so happy with the Fave. Across street is a store for water ect. You are right among the shops restaurants & 5 minute walk to Beach. Which is fine as shops,food,beach is pretty much all u do. We did set up tour from a tour office which was down the street from Fave. They picked us up right at hotel & we went to Ubud for the day. Enjoy Bali & the extra $$$ you will save for staying at this Nice Budget Hotel!!!
