“Great location & Very friendly staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

It's not your fancy resort and it doesn't have a pool, but if your not planning to spend a lot of time in the hotel then I recommend matahari guest house. It is a clean, spacious place to sleep right in the middle of everything - best location in kuta! Staff are so friendly, funny and easy to get along with. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a room away from the road. The scooters are a bit noisy at night.

Last June 2013 I & my family stayed in this guest house for our holiday. It was superb! We stayed in superior room. The location is extraordinarily strategic. It's within walking distance to the beach, market, supermarkets, everything! The staffs were all very helpful & friendly. We will definitely stay in this guest house again if we come to Bali.

Room Tip: Because there's no elevator or lift, we'd suggest that you stay in the 1st floor

we(group of three) just returned from our trip to bali and for 3 days of our trip we stayed here. it cost us less than rm200 (around USD 68) for the entire duration of our stay. Quite cheap considering it was located in central kuta itself, with access to kuta beach, hard rock and kuta's nightlife and shopping district by foot itself (takes ard 10 minutes or so of walking). the rooms are ok, clean enough, and the double bed is big and comfortable. The bathroom was clean but small. Overall, we were happy with the cleanliness. The staff, however, were a different story. I had emailed them a couple of time prior to arriving at the guesthouse that we would require an extra bed. But alas, when we reached at 11pm at night, they said they had no extra beds and so the three of us had to squeeze on the double bed. I was a little miffed and i kept repeating that i had emailed them so many times(which they had replied ok) and asked for them to check their email, but all the staff(a guy) said was, "you can talk to my manager tomorrow" which was basically code for, we really can't do anything and frankly can't be bothered. Also, we requested for two extra pillows, but they said no and only gave us one. Thank god, the extra bed came in the next night though because three to a bed was terrible! The staff were alright but some were a little grumpy/moody. The day staff hardly ever smiled. But all in all, the pros very much outweighed the cons since the price was good and it was clean. For the remainder of the stay we decided to try the S8 hotel also located in Kuta.

The guesthouse is a little bit hard to find the first time, but is nice enough. The room are fine, nothing special. It just has an overall "average" feeling. Nothing is particularly good, or bad. I stayed in Kuta again a week later and stayed in Tanaya Bed and Breakfast for the same price, but a really good value and would prefer Tanaya if I stayed in Kuta again.

We booked superior room at Matahari from Agoda on January 29, 2013. When we arrived there in April 2013, the staff put us in one room. When we got into the room, we were confused why the room was so small. After we asked him back, apparently he gave us the standard room because there were no other available rooms since all already occupied. He said that there was something wrong with the Agoda system without any further explanation. What made us soooo upset, how dare he put us directly to the standard room, without telling us the real condition. It was like trying to cheat on us.

Matahari tried to move us to Coco Heaven Hotel because it is under the same management with them. But, Coco Heaven is not that close to Kuta, plus the traffic jam. Matahari didn't consider that actually guests have planned their holiday and we were planning to spend it in Kuta at that day. We insisted to give back our money so that we can move to another hotel, but Matahari keep persuaded us to move to another hotel namely BOC guest house.

We were really disappointed with Matahari and for sure do not want to stay there again on our next visit to Bali.

The cheapest room are old and not clean, I did not use the sheet. The place looks good at the first time but then, the swimming pool's water was trouble, not changed for a while. Breakfast was not goos as well. The staff (men) were heavy with me as woman alone. I don't recommend this place. I moved in Lamancha homestay, cheap clean room, staff very nice.

Stayed at Matahari Guest House for 5 nights when first arriving on Bali. Good value for money. We had a standard room booked through Agoda and it was just as described. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and had everything you need. Good double bed too. Our room was towards the back and though we had no view to speak off ('construction site' next door), there was no noise and it was very quiet (despite 'construction site'). Not sure how quiet the rooms towards the street out the front would be. Good location in Kuta as well, close to everything.
