“slowly renovating but offer older rooms first. This year I was travelling solo”
Reviewed 7 June 2011

and when I saw the condition of the blanket (maybe they let the rooms out on a 2 hourly basis) I asked for clean blanket and sheets. The room had been renovated, so much better than the rattan walls and ceilings of last year.Had to change room from14 on 1st floor to 19 on 2nd floor to get better aircon.
This year room 19 balcony faced Legian street with no tall building to block music that went to early hoursLast year my room looked out onto restaurant and was quiet.
The bathroom door had been punched by someones "little darling" as had the entrance door to room 19.
I enjoyed my breakfast and ate at the restaurant twice . The Chimi Changers I thought better than TJ'S
Restaurant staff Eeloo lovely the reception staff spent each day sitting on their bottoms doing nothing.
They watched me (71 yrs old) struggle up entrance steps with my luggage when I arrived.
I won't be going to Bali again but if I did I would stay there for the price of their standard room and location, but one has to be prepared to keep looking for a room thats suits you
and I know I would take a pillow protector and pillow case.as when you remove the pillow case the pillow is cover in sweat stains and I always come home with cold and chest infection
For my renovated room ,better air con than last year, and telling them from the start I would like my room cleaned each day I think I got value for the money. OH the pool ladder still only has a top step, like last year so I couldn't go for a wallow

I realy enjoyed my stay at the Taman Sari Cottages. Even though the place is a bit outdated, the rooms and linen where cleaned on a daily basis. The restaurant has a wide choice of meals and drinks at very good prices. I found all of the staff very friendly and alway willing to help in any way they could. What a bonus to walk out of the hotel and right onto poppies lane for shopping. I can not wait to get back and stay at the hotel again.

Full of young couples and families on the night we went. Service was excellent. Mix of Indonesian and Aussie favourites. All nicely done, if a tad plain. Cheap, good portions. Good buzz, but very noisy cuz of the incessant traffic along Poppies 2. Deserves a better rating

Reviewed 5 December 2010

I stayed two nights at the Taman Sari in Poppies Lane II in Nov 2010.
The first room I was put in was quite dingy with the dark rattan/thatch ceiling and walls and a quite scary bathroom. I had read all the bad reviews...so knew what I was getting in to!
I then mentioned there was no TV in the room -- so they moved me to the room next door - BLISS!!. It had been redecorated with a proper ceiling and light coloured paint, so even though it was identical in size it appeared lighter, brighter and larger than the first room. The bathroom had also been re-done with new vanity & toilet (same blue bath though). What I don't get is the hotel was virtually empty -- why didn't they put me in the better room first??
I only paid about AUD$20 per night -- so I thought I got okay value (and the brekkies were nice). They were doing some work around the pool when I first arrived which put me off going pool-side. But the day I was leaving it had all been finished and looked quite nice.
The steps (or lack of) in the pool were a worry. I had to do my best "seal" impersonation to get out of the pool - very inelegant! Would be a concern to elderly or children.
The air-con in the room struggled to do its job -- and I ended up dragging the bed to the middle of the room to get the most benefit (I read another review to get that tip!!).
Alot of the Bali hotels give complimentary water - not this one. I got caught when a staff member returned to my room after check-in and handed me a roll of toilet paper and a bottle of water. Because it had been "handed" to me I assumed that it was free but on check-out I was charged for the water (thankfully not the toilet paper). The same water was Rp1,500 at the shop next door, but of course the hotel charged me Rp8,000 (okay - less than a dollar...but it was the principal).
Very central location right amongst shops, restaurants etc -- can be a bit noisy, but no worse than many other places I've stayed

For the money that you have paid for it is still not value for money. I had a room that literally had a mark some sort had been punched. the toilet was a nightmare, dirty and the drain was clog. name all the dirty or your worst encounter with a hotel, they've got it. To add, the staff are freaking lazy and unhelpfull at all. The breakfast was horribly

As the saying goes you get what you pay for!! You certainly do here!! I think the bathroom suite was blue at some stage in its life but it was hard to tell through the black scum. The bed and pillows were damp and smelly. The room itself was dark and dinjy, the aircon was around a corner so could not be felt when we were in bed trying to sleep, not that we got much due to the noise. The staff were very unhelpful, watched me struggle with my luggage, wouldn't help us with transport. To sum up it was a noisy, smelly and dirty place, cheap and nasty rather than cheap and cheerful.
