I loved this hotel. Particularly for the location- Right next to Hu'u bar and a few smaller bars across the road, a decent ATM very close by, authorised money changer (not a dodgy one) fairly close and Biku about a 3 minute walk up the road. When I was there (early September) some guys were putting footpaths in on the north side of Jalan Petitenget, which will be fantastic once finished. Potato Head, La Lucciola and W resort are all very close too. However the small size of this boutique hotel added a homeliness for a solo traveller.
My room was massive! The bathroom was modern and the bathtub and shower huge. Great value for money considering a similarly priced box hotel down the road offered a small room, no bathtub. Woke up every morning to the gentle sound of the pool (I think there was a little waterfall/water feature down there) and opened my curtains to a gorgeous view of tropical foliage and the pool.
Every day I was greeted by name on the way in or out, friendly smiles and fantastic service. Breakfast was good, I didn't get a chance to eat dinner at the hotel though. Cleaning staff were efficient, thoughtful and non-intrusive. In the evening they come round to spray for mozzies and turn on some mood lighting :) not sure if they do that elsewhere in Bali, I thought it was nice.
2 things that were slightly inconvenient were the size of the hairdryer and the water pressure in the bathtub. No probs with the rain shower, that was great. Basically if your hair is long and/or thick the travel sized hairdryer in the room won't cut it. Bring your own. Also if you want a bath give yourself about an hour to fill it, the hot water in the bathtub doesn't come out with much volume. So if baths and hairdryers can make or break a holiday for you then consider your options, otherwise I highly recommend this place!
