“Old but does the job”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Jayakarta is a typical Balinese style hotel.

The hotel is a bit run down, the rooms are average with the necessities.

There is no safe in the room, a strange safety deposit box system at the hotel lobby instead.

However there is free WIFI throughout the hotel, a must these days for travellers. Good to see a lower star hotel provide this, most 5 star still charge for WIFI.

A bit of a walk to Kuta, will take around 25 minutes to walk.

Great access for shopping in Legian

Had a great experience here, the pools are great, the food was not flash but at the same time did not disappoint.
The grounds are lovely giving that tropical Balinese feel. Having direct access to the beach also was great.

In summary, a hotel that provides budget accommodation in a nice location

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the pool if you want sleep at night.

We have just got back from 8 nights at the jayakarta, location location location !!!!yes it's a bit tired and in need of an upgrade ,but I think most of them are due to the humidity. We had a ball the grounds are beautiful and the staff were very friendly, we had a sea view cottage room it was fine in the 200 block reasonably quiet .walking distance to restaurants and shopping. You can geta taxi out the front . I would def stay there again.

Room Tip: Seaview cottage room away from pool

Have stayed at the Jayakarta a number of times and have just come back from my latest stay. Yes the rooms are tired but they are clean. What keeps bringing me back is the location. Being on the beach front is a plus. The Legian area around the Jayakarta has great shopping, bars and restaurants within walking distance. It is also an easy 20-30 min walk along the beach front into Kuta. (Although would suggest early evening and not the middle of the day).

Room Tip: If staying in the hotel request a deluxe room in the 300 block.

At the end of the day it's only a room to sleep in but the jayakarta is missing the small amenities that are needed e.g DVD players in room, light switches on either side of the bed, 2 keys for the room, a toilet brush and stable wifi!!! The gym is in major need of an update!
The pool area is nice, there is good aircon, clean room every morning, breakfast can be hit and miss.
There is room for improvement but I enjoyed my stay

The Jayacarta hotel was very noisey at night and I would not recommend the poolside rooms for family's. we stayed in a large group of 12 people and were kept awake for most of the night by countless people coming home from night clubs and then swimming in the pool. The security staff did nothing to correct this behaviour.

Room Tip: Do not get a room near the poolside.

Amazing holiday at an amazing place... First things first Bali is an amazing place to visit and the Jayakarta is a fantastic place to stay. Rooms might need a little bit of an upgrade, but there is nothing wrong with them. Food amazing, beds comfy, people wonderful. Location is superb! A must stay in bali!

Room Tip: Eat at the Restaurants on the beach!

It's our first time at the Jayakarta but loved it. We love the Balinese style complex and yes the rooms are tired but if we'd had wanted a brand new western style hotel we could have gone to the Gold Coast. The staff are great and I found the breakfast great although their tea and coffee leaves a little to be desired, I solved that by taking down the 2 tea bags from the room and asking for a pot of hot water. Made my own. The activity on the beach front late afternoon and night time is great, we enjoyed interacting with the Balinese and having a Bintang on the beach.
Can anyone tell me a 1 bedroom apartment number on the TOP floor that the bedroom faces the beach please. Had problems with the road noise. We'll be back next year.
WARNING - Don't buy from the mini mart out the front of the hotel, they will rip you off !!! Walk another few minutes south, a much better shop with good prices.
