We were picked up at the airport by the hotel driver and began to negotiate the frantic traffic that is Bali. After about 5 minutes the driver then turned down a small lane way for about a 1/2 kilometer and we had arrived at the Ozz hotel. On arrival we were given a nice cool drink as we waited in the reception area. We arrived quite early about 6 hours prior to our check in time and were surprised to find we were given a room straight away. As we had been traveling all night we were able to shower and grab a little rest before we set out downtown.
The room was small but compact and the bed was really comfortable, in fact one of the best we have experienced in a hotel for some time. Storage space is very limited so we had most of our stuff in the case during our stay which was a little inconvenient. Nearly all rooms on the ground floor have a pool view and small area outside with table and chairs with some trees giving a limited amount of shade. The pool was a nice size with a small area for young children to swim and had a reasonable number of poolside beds.
The air conditioning in the room was very efficient and the staff gave us an extra key card so we could run the air conditioner while we were out and return at night to a cool room. We later discovered new owners had taken over the hotel and were trying to make it more comfortable for guests and would often ask for feedback and suggestions, the manager Rose gave the impression she was quite proactive and would take on board all feedback for consideration.
We had breakfast included which was a little limited in choice and at times a little cold but enough for you to get a good start to the day.
We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel following our purchase on Scoopon for 5 nights at $50 a night and we paid for 2 more nights on arrival and extended our stay to 7 days here.
Pros; Good location for those who want to shop, some good restaurants close by. good value for a short stay, staff are helpful and friendly. service overall is quite good.
Cons; Some staff appear to be very inexperienced and take a while to respond. I tried to order some Fries off the poolside menu and was told "no Chips!" less than 15 minutes later some were being delivered to one of the rooms. I think the hotel owners were there on an inspection tour and the girl called Sunday whom I asked appeared to be in a bit of a panicked state.
Smoking is an issue for the non smokers especially at breakfast as there are no separate areas.
The piped music can be a annoying especially the rap style with the 'Mother F@#&*r' words. I am not sure if the staff actually understand this and when you mention it they just smile , we had a speaker outside our room in a tree, and the same music played for days over and over, it starts around 7am until about 10.30pm.
There was some pool noise at 6.30 am one morning and a couple of nights around 11pm to which the management paid no attention for guest comfort but my wife who is a women to be feared managed to get them to keep the noise down.
Overall a reasonably pleasant stay spoilt only slightly by a bunch of 8 geriatric yobo's who were in Bali for a wedding smoking, eating and drinking and commandeering the pool plus making loud noises to excess and leaving a mess for the staff to clean up. .
