Note: This is an independent hotel review based on my personal experience.
The Hotel: We arrived late in the evening, but our wonderful hostess greeted us with a big warm smile and quickly checked us in. We were on the second floor. The room itself is simple and outdated, but a comfortable bed, a night table, a lamp and a tv provided the bare necessities. The bathroom was a typical Asian wet room – toilet, sink and shower in one small area. A big bar of soap and towels were provided at no extra charge.
The Service: Fantastic! Friendly, helpful and outgoing.
The Breakfast: Included in the price, the breakfast was a definite highlight. I had a banana pancake while my husband enjoyed fried eggs. A plate of fresh fruit, butter, marmalade, fresh pressed juice, coffee and tea were presented on a table by the pool.
Convenience: Restaurants, clubs, shops and Legian Beach are all within walking distance. The side street where it is located helps with night life noise levels and while we were there, the guests seemed quiet and respectful.
Positive: Almost everything; the host, the breakfast, the location, the pool.
Negative: Outdated, run down rooms; Internet is often weak to non-existent so best idea is to buy a SIM card so you don’t have to rely on it. Both afternoons we came back to no electricity, which lasted a few hours due to hedge / tree trimming, I think.
The Cost: €13 / US$16 per night (3 nights, Rp 689,700 / €40 / US$50)
Do I recommend it? Yes! If you are a person who is looking for a quiet place to lay your head at night for a great price, this is what you are looking for.
