Reviewed 29 September 2012

We stayed for 10 nights in Kuta at MasaInn after staying 4 nights at the lovely Tarum Haram cottages in Mas. We stayed in the top of the range "Balinese Style Rooms" no 129 and 130. Room where spacious and well priced for a total of $125 for the two room.
Place was quiet during day but there where a few nights where people where extremely rowdy and even when asked by security to be quiet didnt quieten down till after 0130. I think that security need to be more forceful and threaten these people with being kicked out the following day.
Our rooms where back from main entrance between the two pools. Our air conditioner wasnt functioning well and they finally managed to fix the problem half way through our stay. The beds didnt have mattress protectors on them so our sheets slipped around all the time particularly as we had mossie repellant on. Mossies only seemed to become a problem half way through our stay coinciding with the air conditioner being fixed - not sure the relevance of this.
Great location near shops although we got sick of the business of Poppies lane, but eventally worked out how to bypass it by taking small side line just close to TJs restaurant which took us to main road
Breakfast was more than we could eat and very adequate but juices where watered down
Overall I believe you get what you pay for and Masa inn was good value for money for people on a budget

PS Kids loved the great pools!

If you are looking for a hotel that is inexpensive, in the heart of Kuta, that is relatively quiet during the day and rowdy as all hell at night, that offers a terrible breakfast, then look no further! You have found your hotel! Sleep deprivation is a guarantee as is the lack of effort of the security staff here to contain the noise! They were so cheap that they didn't even have the standard tiny cake of soap in the room! Add to that the delightful fragrance of septic and you have the perfect recipe for the hotel from hell!

Honestly that this hotel is in a good location as it is quite close to the beach ! It is a nice complex with swimming pool and garden. Staffs are friendly execpt the old woman at reception.

+ Positive:
- Near the beach.
- Good breakfast.
- Staffs are helpful
- Swimming pool and garden.

+ Negative:
- It really needs an improvement. The room is not clean, bathroom look so old and dirty. It is not the fault of rooms' cleaner.
- Located in a messy street which got lots of crazy money exchangers who try to cheat and take money from you so please DO NOT CHANGE YOUR MONEY HERE. Besides that, this street is very dirty and small so sometimes cars can not come in and we needed to walk alot.

Have stayed here 3 times now over 4 years... This time we had a 2 year break between visits & I'm still happy to say the masainn gives you a little piece of Bali paradise. The prices have increased from last visit( just under $60 for a double compared to under $40 two years ago)... But this is still ridiculously cheap. In fairness the breakfast which is included in this price has increased. This includes indo buffet twice a week. Probably even too big a breakfast for Bali when food is so cheap & everywhere.... Rooms are starting to get a little old & maybe may need some upkeep / paint/ new mattresses/ pillows very soon... But again... For the price there is nothing wrong with the rooms.. Clean & neat. The Inn itself is the draw card.. So close to the beach & designed so that all the noise from poppies lane cannot be heard. Two great pools. Beautiful courtyard, & not too big a resort so it never seems overcrowded...the real Bali experience in my eyes. The main residence of the owners is beautiful & worth going just to see the gorgeous design & stained glass windows. I still don't like Kuta very much but loved the masa inn & always will:)

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back & on the ground floor. This way you get a lovely front porch with cha...

Always stay here for part of our annual holiday in Bali. This way we get to compare it to the other places that we stay at for the other part of the holiday. We always choose similar standard hotels and the Masa comes up with the goods each time. Clean, friendly and very 'Balinese'. For under $60 AUD per room including a basic breakfast it is still good value and better standard than other similar priced hotels throughout the Kuta area. The rooms we had this visit were not our preference as they were ground floor near the small pool and reception area. We were disturbed each night by noisy guests returning to their rooms at all hours of the morning and showing little consideration for other guests. Book very early and ask for rooms around the big pool. It is much quieter there.

Room Tip: rooms around the big pool are quieter but ground floor more expensive.

I stayed with my son in Masainn for five days, following the advice of my daughter who used to stay there overnight, on her way to East Timor. It is a small hotel with beautifull gardens , a good swimming pool, basic rooms, nice breakfast. The service is friendly and helpfull.
It has everything nearby : beach, restaurants, bars with free wifi, shops, hairdresser...You can not ask for more with the price we pay.

Room Tip: Rooms around the swimmingpool are not so quiet.

I stayed at the La Walon and have stayed at the Masa Inn. My best friend did and was disappointed when I started gushing about my stay next door at the La Walon. The rooms are grubby and my friend has been eaten alive by bed bugs The service is shocking and the desk staff never smile I would reccomend not to stay there as the prices are more expensive then the La Walon but the La Walon is better quality how does that work
