Grand Kuta
Ranked #13 of 86 Specialty Lodging in Legian
Reviewed October 1, 2010

Stayed there for 2 nites at the studio room in Sep 2010. I've been searching for a hotel in Bali and booked Aston two months ago and thought this is a new one (as it said it was opened this year) with GOOD rate for a bargain.

Here is my quick summary of my comment :

1. Service - 5-star. Staff are very friendly and courteous; Overall service is excellent!!!

2. Internet Access - Free Wifi with good internet access!

3. Breakfast is ok (you can't compare with a 5-star one with this rate; They have an egg cooking station where a chef will cook for you.)

4. The bedroom area is as seen on the internet (of cos, they added photoshop effect to make it look more grand and nicer!) Overall, room is spacious with a balcony facing the swimming pool.

5. The bathroom is very primitive, simple, with shower only. The shower pressure was funny, sometime strong, sometime weak; and there is only a simple shower curtain, so you will wet the whole bathroom after shower. And, if you drop your cloth on the floor, it will definitely soak!

6. Location is in the middle of nowhere

7. Stains and scratch marks on the floor! ( i m surprise if they claim it is newly open this year) ; flies or mosquitos in the room; spider lurking on the floor. (The stains and scratch marks should be common in Aston as we asked for a change of room but the stains found in both studio rooms)

8. Not sure about the hygiene of the towels (Looking old, torn, grey with stains - maybe from central supply of Aston) - I went out to Kuta to buy a new towel in the end

9. Linen - Black stains on our pillow case, grey color of duvet cover & sheets; looking old and worn out.

(You can't tell it's a new hotel after all)

If you are a honeymooner, think twice before booking if you want a great lay-in at the beach hotel or you just want a shelter. Aston Grand Kuta is nothing luxury nor anything feel like a hotel. I feel my home is better.

I feel my holiday in Bali is totally ruined by pickng the wrong hotel. There is nothing wrong with Aston but this is my personal feeling. If you are a budget traveller, it should be a good choice. I hope this review could help others (esp. honeymooner) not to follow my steps

i stayed there for 3 nights and i can say that i'm fully satisfied specially when the front desk upgraded my family and I from studio standard to studio deluxe with two rooms.

this is a new apartment with 3 pools and the fitness centre is still on progress. the bfast was fabulous (western style) and the good thing is they do not serve pork (sorry, no offence).

yeah the front desk is small enough that it took long time to check in/check out (it did not happen to us but i saw many times there were queues).

the staff are friendly with their special balinese greeting.

We rented a car over there so we didn't find it far to go anywhere. seminyak is just 10 mins walk. yeah this place is a bit far from the crowded but seeing those high room prices in kuta and legian, why not choose this one. reasonable price with new furniture and lcd TV. the bathroom is small but that's still okay. i love the concept that this apartment has.

i can say that i will sure comeback to this hotel whenever i visit bali in the future.

the internet connection is terrific. it was free coz when i was there, it was still on opening deals.
