As usual I used Trip Advisor to plan my trip and it never fails. The Ping Hotel was more than I expected. I had read that the rooms were small so I booked a superior room and the size of the room was excellent. We arrived late, after midnight, they were ready for us. The room was cool and fruit was in the room. We were shown to our room immediately. The property was quite and we had fantastic sleep every night. From the time we checked in until we checked out I did not encounter one employee that was not smiling and friendly. In fact I ask at the desk upon check out where or how did they get such excellent staff. The room was cleaned perfectly every day. The free breakfast buffet was way more than adequate. We stayed five days and I suppose some may get tired of the various ways of preparing eggs, but that was no problem with me, since I eats eggs every morning for breakfast at home. We had dinner in the hotel two nights and encountered no problem with the food. My travel companion enjoyed the pool. Some have commented the two buildings shade the pool and that is true, but it was so hot that the shade was welcomed as I sat by the pool.
We arrived on March 30th and it was the Balinese Hindus New Years. On arrival nearly everything at the airport was closed. The city was dark going to the hotel - weird, no street lights. On Monday no one could walk around the city. It is a day of silence. The only taxi service was from the airport to a hotel. On that one day no light, no fire, no travel and no work. The only ones allowed to work are essential employees. On Tuesday morning everything returned to normal.
Shopping and restaurants are in walking distant of the hotel. The hotel is five stories and the roof can be used for viewing, drinks and sun. We were told in Bali no building can be more than five stories.
I have only one complaint. There is not a soap dish in the wall of the shower. When you get older, like me, putting the soap on the floor of the shower and bending down to get it is difficult. The shower is large and nice hot/cold/warm water falls upon you like rain.
I definitely would recommend this hotel to family and friends. Any return visit to Bali it is my hotel of choice.
