First,we were a bit surprised that we were charged immediately for one night , although it was not mentioned anywhere while booking . That was OK , as long as we had to overnight somewhere close to the airport . Now we know why they do this : because nobody wants to stay there for more than a night !
The room is so SMALL , that my wife got claustrophobia there . If you have two suitcases like us , the only chance to reach the bed is to jump - Bruce Lee style , right from the front door straight in it . But be careful - the window is very close too !
If you take the risk to have a shower - it is awfuly mouldy and the drainage was blocked with hair from previous guests . You have to enter inside the loo with one shoulder first , then the rest of the body . Although we are relatively small people , believe me , it is not easy !
The sheets had marks of blood , but the towels were disgusting . I requested two new ones , but the "new" ones were even worser !
There is no space at all for luggage . No wardrobe . No table or a chair . But there is a MINIBAR ! I looked around and I did not find any pricelist in the room . Half an hour after I asked the reception for it , a steward brought me one . Quite pricey ! BE AWARE , MATES !
We decided to have a drink at the "panorama bar" : but it was closed , and so the jacuzzi . Somebody told us that it works only during the day in certain hours ?!
Breakfast : poor . At least we had toasts and terrible coffee . But because the "Botique"hotel does not have separate restaurant for dining , the staff improvise the lobby area at the front of the reception as so . And do not be surprised if earlyrisers with sandy legs and beach equpment sit by you .
Upon our departure , we were insulted by waiting 1/2 hour at the reception , because the staff had to check if we did not emptied the bloody minibar !
FINAL WORDS : DEAR GUEST , PLEASE , AVOID THIS HOTEL !!! There are much better hotels for this price . And if you want to see the beauties of Bali , go straight to Ubud . If you want snorkeling - go to Lovina (Marine Park) , or to Candidasa (White Sand Beach) for the same or less price . If you really want to stay at Kuta , better choose the great beaches of Kuta - Lombok !
