we had an extended stay the the zen inn, the owner Liam is a good bloke took me and the partner around a few diffrent places, looked after us as if we were VIP's his partner is a lovley lady, and all the staff are freindly and willing to help you with any issues
power went out a couple of time but this is not the inns fault as padang bai has average power source,

we really enjoyed the place and at these prices you cannot miss the zen inn

This place is located close to the ferry = plus. The rooms are really nice, comfortable & clean. The food in the joining restaurant is EXTREMELY good! The breakfast is small but nice. Excellent value for your money, really!!!!! The people running the place also really take care of their guests: my friend and I couldn't confirm our reservation and we arrived (delayed) from lombok at 1 o'clock at night. When we got off the ferry a policeman came to ask us if we were staying at zen inn and he called the staff and they let us in. We were very grateful for this. Don't hesitate about this place-if your traveling on a budget (20 euro/night) this will be the nicest place you will stay at for sure!!!

Truly, the Zen Inn is just steps away from the ferry- perfect for the sea-legged traveler. The wifi, hot showers, great rooms, and kick [--] food make this place a must. Be warned though- book ahead- this place fills up. I definitely recommend this place. We ended up staying an extra night and wish we could stay longer!

A wonderfully friendly place, amazing value for money and the service is fantastic. I'm just so sorry it has taken me so long to thank Liam and all the fantastic staff (I am so sorry I had all your names written down and I lost the paper it was written on) who went out of the way to make our stay so lovely. I stayed with my friend James and I cannot recommend this great place enough, I really hope to return one day. Many many thanks for the fantastic hospitality, I'm so sorry it took me so long to say thank you.

This is a lovely boutique hotel in central Padang Bai, 2min walk to the ferry port. Having travelled through Indonesia for a month we found Zen Inn accommodation to be great value for money. They have 2 styles of room( we stayed in both) –they are clean and comfortable with modern bathrooms & a small court yard. The restaurant serves delicious meals and the staff are very welcoming and attentive

Liam and Wayan are great hosts, they are very happy to share their extensive local knowledge and help you make the most of your time in Bali

Over all we had 2 very enjoyable stops at Zen Inn– definitely worth checking out to stay or at the very least a stop for a beer and a chat. If we come back this way we would certainly make a return visit

Absolutely friendly and helpful staff! Had really good nights over there. Rooms are really clean and cheap.

The food at the bar is just awesome.

Liam and his wife are very helpful and we had a good lough with them!
Location: close to the harbour and about 15mins walking away from both beaches!

Surprised about the warm welcome from staff and owner who introduced us to other travelers what is very useful for further travel plans to Lombok or surrounding places.The hotel staff spent a long time to explain what to visit and to get to the Gilis and on our return 3 days later went back at the restaurant for a great salad at the Zen-Inn restaurant
On arrival we had a lovely dinner and will recommend to take the Mahi-Mahi who was more tastefully then any other place in Bali. Sleeped well in large bedroom with comfortable bed and new bathroom. We will return and will also visit the nice beaches who are close to the Hotel.
