Alam Shanti/Indah or Alaya Resort

I'm completely indecisive in choosing a hotel in Ubud

I really wanted to stay at alam jiwa, but they only have a room available for one of two nights i'll be there :(

-alam indah has the gardenia suite or the deluxe garden room

-alam shanti has the deluxe garden narmada or the purwati room

or! i could go the other route and stay at alaya (less "balinese" i'm sure).

what would be your suggestion?

I would take ohe of the Alam hotels over a "hallway hotel" like the Alaya any day...

I am on my soap box about this, but the large hotels like Alaya have no business being in small footprints in crowded areas of Ubud...and when people stay in hotels like these they are voting with their wallet for large hotels that as you correctly say are not very Balinese at all..

I would choose Shanti over Indah, if steps are an issue for you.

I have not stayed in the Narmada suite at Shanti, but have stayed in the room above, Indus (which we loved) and also in Purwati. Personally, I would choose Narmada, as I felt to detached from the resort, staying in Purwati, (it's as they say, about a 200 metre walk from reception)...this however, may suit you.
