Having problems emailing Ubud

I will be in Ubud from July 9 evening to July 27 morning. I have tried to email several guesthouses but have not recieved one reply. Since I am traveling alone and arriving in the evening I would like to have something sorted before I get there.

Here is what I am looking for:

private bath


safe for women (walking to /from in early am or evenings)

close to yoga barn


under $20 a night.

Do any of you have a place that fits and I can contact online?

I really appreciate the advice you give here.

Hi Jenna

The hotels are not very good at replying to emails even though they advertise an email address.

I also had trouble contacting a hotel in Bali and even phoned one day in frustration which was also a waste of time because I could not understand them with their strong accents.

The best way to communicate with them I have found is by fax as they mostly can read and write English.

Good luck

Welcome to Indonesia. It is alaways a surprise to me when my emails are promptly replied to here. LOL

Be patient. They do get back eventually.

For that price in July (high season) you'll be looking at a homestay.

Ubud is safe for women anywhere, and close to Yoga Barn for homestays and reasonably quiet could be around Jalan Jembawan/ Sugriwa/Teba Saya. Or the Dana Sari/Kunang Kunang row that goes off opposite Kafe (owned by the same woman as the Yoga Barn.

If you would like me to book you something I can have a go.

PM me or answer me on the thread.

Thanks Gabe, that would be a big help. Can I bring you anything from Korea, or take you to lunch for your efforts? I will pm specifics,
