Reviewed November 27, 2012

My Daugher and I stayed at the Balisani Padma Hotel for 9 nights in November.

Taking into consideration how cheap the room rates are at this Budget Hotel we found the rooms to be quiet good.


The first room we were given was a standard room located on the second floor, which was okay, except that it had a double bed and we wanted two single beds.

We were moved to another standard room on the ground floor on our second day which had two single beds.

From reviews that I read in this forum before booking the hotel I was somewhat skeptical, but found that it wasn't as bad as some would suggest.

Check in was relatively quick and trouble free.

Staff are friendly

Pool and pool bar was great

Breakfast was included in our room rate and was very satisfying ( eggs, Pancakes, Omelets, fruit, Noodles, Rice, Juice and Tea & Coffee).

Rooms are cleaned daily, sheets and bath towels are also changed daily.
(The towels and sheets are clean but are very discolored and are in need of renewing)

The toilet was in a separate room to the bath and shower, the room that housed the bath and shower was very small no room in there to dry yourself or to get dressed unless you stand in the bathtub. We had ample hot and cold water, the bath was clean but very badly stained.

There is no safety deposit box in the rooms, but you can store valuables in safety deposit box at reception.

The poolside massages are very good and definitely better then some of the other massage places in Legian.

Location is good, the beach is around 10 minutes walk from the hotel and there is lots of restaurants within walking distance.

There are also cottages available at the hotel but from what we could see there was not that much difference between the standard rooms and the cottage rooms.

Room Tip: We booked our room at the hotel with agoda and found the room rates to be very good. Tips Purcha...

Wasnt paying for 5 stars. It was cheap and the breakfast was good. All I needed was a shower, a bed and somewhere to get changed. Was close to everything and although the place was old and dark the bed was comfortable. The pool was ok too. Don't let the staff organise the trip back to the airport. Told us it would be over twice as much as it cost by cab. Lucky we new about how much to expect it to cost. Not the place for a romantic getaway.

First of Hotels in Bali is surprisingly Cheap so the amount you are paying to this hotel You Should Expect more. On the Day one the room we got we immediately asked them to change the room.. Room is very Dull!! Air Con not working properly !! Pool Was relatively Small! Only thing was good is the location very close to the beach! Breakfast was ok. If you ask me i will not return to this hotel

We stay at this Hotel for 10days total, will not come back anymore.
No hot water and when was presented to front office (manager???) he said to wait 20/30min and let the water waste trough the bath…(very very concern about the wastage…) at the end we discovered that they just need to switch one the boiler outside each villa… but of course they need to save money…
The fist 7 days no bkfst buffet, only fruits (the pineapple was not mature at all), coffee and tea, 2 juices (make from powder). Likely I try to ask for omelette and toasted bread, well, the lady chef was bit annoyed to accomplish my request.
Service staff no exist, just talk badly behind the guests (my wife is Indonesian and she translate me everything) this is UNPROFESSIONAL and very bad to the peoples that pay their salary.
On the 8th day the owner of the Hotel was there and the bkfst buffet was very good, fresh and well presented. I did mentioned to the lady was there and she put her eyes down.All service team was present, full of gardener amd engeeniring staff around, even the services staff at the pool bar present.
Room is old, bad is noisy, mattress old and stinky, bad sheet old and dirty, towl old with holes.
In the bathroom wall there was 2 holes made from someone to spy from outside, we catch that and cover it with tooth past.
Swimming pool water very cold
We will never come back and we strongly NOT recommend this Hotel to anyone, there are many cheaper hotel and better served in Bali.
BYE BYE

There were good and bad aspects to this hotel, and unfortunatley for us, the bad outweighed the good, and we only stayed for two nights out of the 5 we had booked.

Firstly the good: The hotel is in a great location, the grounds are quiet, and not far from the beach, the cottages are cute and breakfast is included every morning.

The bad: There are no in-room safety deposit boxes, we had no hot water and the wooden bed base groaned with every small movement. Unfortunately I'm a light sleeper, so this meant very little sleep for me. Coupled with no hot water, we ended up checking out and moving somewhere that didn't have these issues.

I personally wouldn't stay here again, but I can see the charm of the place, and if the issues mentioned above were rectified, then I would definitely reconsider.

We were looking for a nice hotel less than $50 a night close to padma beach and found this gem. Very simple and clean, it is close to shops and markets. It has onsite massage and nice pool/bar. QUIET !!!! We paid $45 a night breakfast and tax included.
The only problem we found was that the bed was noisy, really noisy ! waking you up eachtime you move ! We told the staff to fix it.

Room Tip: More expansive rooms are on the gound floor in separate bungalows. Cheaper rooms are near the entry...

Nice intimate place but really a once grand old lady of a hotel..needs maintenence. Doors don't lock well, looks a bit shabby. Standard rooms would be OK at $25-$30 but they are overpriced. Cottages at $10 a night extra are much better.Nearby hotels at similar prices have beach front access and fancy gardens.
BUT I liked it and enjoyed the staff and a cosy atmosphere

Room Tip: cottage ok standard rooms bit gloomy
