The La Walon has a Nice location with lots of shops, bars, restaurants and mini marts.
The pool is amazing and the room in comfy and clean.

La Walon is at the high end of Bali hotels. The Deluxe room in the new wind was great, with nice bathroom, fridge, air conditioning and satellite TV (Telekom Vision carries all the key western news channels, plus Star Sports, kids channels, several movie channels etc). The pool are was a great place to hang out - and the Poppies 1 Lane is a great place to haggle for a deal. LaWalon's restaurant is fine, as are the two directly opposite. But avoid Havana next door - it pulls out a different menu in the evening which seemed seriously overpriced when compared with other restaurants in the area and the food was average and not good value. It was our most expensive meal during out 12 days in Bali - and perhaps the least memorable with tasteless prawns and a bland hamburger with was three times what others were charging.
Sadly our visit to La Walon ended in a very sour note. During our early morning check out, our room key was handed to some guy we had never seen before ( night staff?) to check the drinks we had consumed in the fridge. I decided 30 seconds after he had left that maybe I should also check the room to make sure we hadn't left anything behind. When I arrived, this guy had turned the room upside down and was going through the cupboards. The cash tip I had left for the room service crew in one of the beds had disappeared. He became really surly when I showed up. This sort of intentional dishonest behaviour ( stealing money intended for someone else) made me very annoyed and left a bad taste in my mouth after a great stay. As a result won't stay at La Walon when we return to Bali next year.

Room Tip: Choose a ground floor deluxe room - you get a nice little deck to hang out on.

Stayed here for 3 nights in July, location is great on poppies 1 easy walk to beach and easy walk to poppies 2. Still away from craziness and noise. Hotel grounds are kept clean and there are some really nice statues, pool is great nice and refreshing! Room is basic but comes with a safe huge bed and a bathroom, free water is supplied everyday so was breakfast which was a choice of eggs and bacon, jaffles and pancakes. If you want a place to stay that's cheap but nice and location is perfect then stay here.

Our main criteria when checking in, which is the state of the bathroom, failed to pass our standards. We even had to request for a change of towels upon arriving as the ones provided were full of stains. Room, though spacious, was dark. Elevator was not working all throughout our 4-day stay which left us working our way up 3 flights of stairs 6-8 times a day. The so-called free wifi was also totally unreliable and we had to go to a coffee shop several blocks away to get internet connection. Staff offers no apologies whatsoever for all these shortcomings. The only positive factor was that Kuta beach was just a 5-minute walk away, however it was also another story to go through the narrow alley leading to the hotel where you have to walk very close to the walls to avoid being hit by vehicles. Also be very careful with the money changers in the vicinity who almost duped us thru their quick tucking of bills supposedly already counted.

Room Tip: Choose rooms from the lower floors to avoid using the steep stairway which is inevitable because of...

We booked into La Walon for just the afternoon when we first got to our room we noticed an over powering smell of moth balls also the bathroom roof was covered in mould and the bed seemed really uncomfortable.
As we were leaving for the airport at around 9:00pm. We informed reception of this when we first checked in. Yet when our driver arrived he only knew our room number and could not remember our names so reception just turned him away. As the staff had changed over and no one had passed on the message so our driver was turned away. So we were left waiting for 20 minutes before my husband asked reception to call our driver and it was then we were told what had happened. By that time our driver was stuck in traffic and he ended up sending a friend.

We stayed here for 5 days in May and experience has been good and bad both.

The things we liked about this place were:
- Swimming pool was nice
- Staff were courteous and friendly
- Food in the restaurant was nice and not too expensive
- Location was very close to Kuta beach
- Close to the bar area and other restaurants
- Close to the airport

The things which we did not like:
- We asked for a room on higher floor during our booking but were provided a ground floor room
- Room on the ground floor was damp and had a musty smell
- Lots of mosquitoes inside the room
- Beds were not comfortable
- Towels and bed sheets were not washed properly and had a bad smell
- Toilet was not clean

All in all we got what we paid for but will not be coming back again. If they can work on the cleanliness part of the rooms and toilets then maybe yes.

Room Tip: - Avoid ground floor room - Bring mosquito repellent along - Be prepared for dirty linen and towe...

La Walon hotel is a very nice hotel whether if you are by yourself or traveling as a famaily or group. The staff are very polite and will help you in anyway possible. The hotel is pretty much central in kuta so nothing is that faraway. Overall my stay of 12 nights was a pleasent one and will booking there again for xmas.
