We ended up in Amed Cafe by chance, as we arrived in Amed while it was raining and didnt feel like looking around too much. We got a discount on one of the rooms at the top of the road, which was beautiful - outside bathroom, big comfortable bed, air-conditioning and charming balcony with a day bed. Clean and well designed.
We were right above the street, so it was a bit noisy, but nothing too much.
We found the staff unhelpful and the man working at the shop, also run by the Amed Cafe, was down right rude, grumpy and always trying to squeeze the last rupiah out of us (lied about prices and once upped the already given price for bananas from the girl that also works there). Unfortunately its the only place in Amed to find a lot of conveniences, so even after moving to a different accommodation, we had to deal with them.
The pool is cold and the kids only tried it once, which is not a good sign. I liked the view and the buildings around it - very cozy and beautiful.
We had asked if its ok to pay by credit card and got affirmative answer. On the morning we were leaving, we made our way down and got ready to pay at which time the woman behind the counter says "Oh, you could pay by credit card before 10am, because now there is no electricity". This part we were not told, so now we were stuck with the kids in the lobby. It was getting close to the time when our 2 year old would need a nap, so I asked if its ok for us to go back to the room for him to sleep while we wait for the electricity - "Not possible" was the answer, short and sweet. Why, I was not sure, as the hotel was empty - we saw not one other guest while we stayed there.
If you are after beautiful, comfortable room, that would be the place. Everything else was quite underwhelming and for the price, was not good enough for us.
