I'm looking for accommodation in September for my 13 YO daughter and myself. Preferably an easy and safe walk (or shuttle bus) to restaurants and shops and less than $100 night.
I've been reading a lot of hotel reviews and lots of them appear suss. Many of them seem to be single contributions with names like Mary B or Joe W and all give 5 stars
The worst are some reviews for Junjungan Ubud Hotel and Spa with FrederickBa of Kyoto, MalcolmWa of Tokyo and EllenaKi of Portugal giving 5 star ratings and identical glowing reviews 3 days apart. Frankly I don't trust any reviews by anyone who has only one contribution - pity you can't screen them out.
So...I need help (from real unbiased people!) I've tried Tegal Sari, but they are full, Alam Shanti etc are another option but I'm a bit nervous about walking through the Monkey Forest in the evenings. Is it easy to get to and fro either by shuttle bus or taxi?
Are there any other family oriented hotel recommendations?
