“Nice budget place close to the action”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

My room was clean, spacious and looks like it was renovated within the last 5 years. The furniture was basic but for the money was adequate. All the staff were very friendly and I enjoyed the short conversations with some of the staff. The pool area was appealing and there was a large garden space to walk around and take in some classic Bali landscaping. There were no safes in the rooms but were some in reception with 24 hour attendance. I would stay there again as it is close to poppies 2 but it is a 2 to 3 star hotel and not for the people expecting 5 star for $50 US a night.

Have just returned from staying here for 9 nights. We had 2 standard gardens rooms which were very basic but were clean enough, sheets and towels very discolored. When we arrived in our room we noticed a slight smell which appeared to be a damp, mildewy smell. We put up with this for a couple of days and mentioned to our cleaner about this smell which got worse over time and he was more than happy to clean our airconditioner and try and sort out smell. After 4th night smell was just too much made us feel sick so we upgraded to a Suite had to pay extra but it was worth it. Bathroom in the suite was pretty yuck, huge waste of space only had hot water in the afternoons. Breakfast was nice each morning although would be nice to maybe add some pancakes and cereals. Overall we were disappointed with our accomodation this time in Bali and won't be returning to Matahari Bungalows or recommending to our friends to stay here.

Room Tip: Suite rooms on 2nd floor noisy at night from around 9.30 to 2.30. Ground levels where a lot quieter...

The location is good if you're into the attractions that Kuta has to offer, although it is a good 15 minute walk from the beach. The grounds are nice, the pool is great and the free breakfast was pretty good. However the rooms do need to be freshened up and they really have to do something about the sheets and furnishings. Hopefully if people keep posting rooms about this the management will fix what is otherwise the only blemish on an otherwise tidy hotel.

We manage to get cheap room for the 8 of us, 3 kids and 5 adults for 3 rooms. Upon arrival, the staff upgrade all of us to Deluxe room but was at the 3rd level without lift.

I would say depends on yr luck, one of the room was newly renovated but the air con was taking long time to get cold esp. after a hot day out.

The other two rooms was fittings and furniture, one room was cold but the other we've complaint 3 times the air con not working still they didnt manage to change the room or to repair the air con. It was barely room temperature...

All pipe water seems salty taste, maybe all water in Bali the same. Do not use tap water for drinking.

We buy mineral water everyday for drinking and for beverage.

One of the great point was the walking distance to all shops, bars, disco, minimart etc.

The breakfast was limited choice.

Room Tip: Try to upgrade for free. Choose newly renovated room.

The location is not bad ,close to poppies lane . Its very hit and miss with the type of room you get . We booked three rooms all the same price my friends room was good out the back of hotel ,ours closer up the front was terrible and we had a lot of cockroaches visit our bathroom. nice grounds swim up bar is a novelty . Front of house management not overly friendly . There is better places to stay .

Room Tip: Stay out the back around pool area the rooms are much better.

The place is clean with basic ammenities. It is situated close to everything; beach, shopping at the international mega stores to the local little shops. Like most places in this area, it is off a busy road but the accommodations are set to the back so we didn't hear the traffic. The food is less than average, breakfast was included which was good cause i wouldn't want to pay for it. The staff are extremely nice and helpful; great smiles and giggles. The pool is large and deep, a bit too much chlorine, it is clean. Wi-fi in the local area and the a/c in the rooms as well as tv. The architecture is unique Balinese which makes the stay feel like you are in Bali and not at some hotel in North America. Lots of vegitation, the grounds crew work really hard to keep the grounds clean! Well done gentlemen.

Room Tip: deluxe standard is a little larger than the standard and it had a tub/shower seperate from the toile...

just returned from Bali, trip number 24, this hotel is the worst hotel in Bali, we arrived at night to find the room(best one available-most expensive) was damp, smelly-mold. The kitchen had nothing in it no knifes,forks,spoons not even any cups or glasses, i went up to the reception and was told the kitchen was closed but they advertise 24 hour room service??? Our room was advertised corner spa?? there was a dirty corner bath with a shower over it no spa!!! The food was plain and semi boring with limited choices for breakfast. The only good thing about this hotel is the location and some of the staff. The beds are like bricks and we could not spend another night there and as for the in hotel massage service there was nothing even though it is advertised.
Dont ask for a late check out as they will tell you one thing and then try to charge you a full days tariff. Worst place in Bali will never return there, there are better places close by be warned dont go there..........

Room Tip: white rose hotel close by much better value. go to OUR`S bar and restaurant great food,service and l...
