“Unhappy encounter at Ida Hotel, Bali”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

I was staying in Ida hotel from 30 Nov to 2 Dec 2013 with my family and my little one. The hotel do not provide any kettle in the room in case you need some hot drink. My little one need hot water to make baby food and I approached the staff on 1 Dec night at the cafe for some hot water. Surprisingly, the staff ( middle age or early 50 male staff) at the cafe refused to give initially. After much conversation and he gave it unwillingly.

On the next morning I met the same staff again at the cafe for our breakfast. I have showed him the meal ticket and he didn't say anything. My father-in-law was walking a few steps behind me but he asked him which room he from very disrespectfully.

During the breakfast, he only greeted the European (loud and clear) and try to strike an conversation with them, but not the people of Asian like us. That make me feel like walk off the hotel immediately.

Never stayed this far from the action but given it was schoolies we stayed here. Nice hotel got upgraded for free as hotel was over booked. Paid $26.00 a night not bad id say. Aircon was icy cold, no free wifi. Remember to log out to save your wifi hours. Drinks nice food nothing flash. Buffet breakfast very basic. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Must give big shout out to the theme night they have on Thursday nights Indonesian night although we didn't eat the meal just had a few drinks and listened to the band. The band was the best I have heard in Bali and I have heard a few. Sat and listened to them for hours. Cot was given to us free of charge which was a bonus. Good hotel for price best for couples and younger travellers not a lot of room for big families

Nice clean rooms and the food was average. The wifi isn't free. Breakfast buffet was ok. Pool is small. This is a great budget hotel for families. Location is walking distance to shopping areas around. But a little hidden from main roads so taxi drivers might not know the hotel well.

Very good service great staff and central to pretty much everything. Yet the hotel is in the end of dead end lane so is quiet and secluded spot.At the hotel lounging around the pool or bar you could easily belief you were at a village. The rooms are clean and decently sized all are air conditioned there are two types a standard and superior.At the time I was there they were upgrading a few rooms at a time, lots of people I met there seem to come back again and again what more can I say.

Booked 1 night stay, thankfully only 1 night, standard room was worse than a hostel standard in Asia, don't understand how it has "ok" reviews. We had to change rooms as it was infested with Mosquitos and lizards, at 10pm had to pack our stuff and move room hw I we was upgraded to a superior room (if you call it that) balcony isn't private it was joint with 1 other, all balconies can be accessed by the gap joining, the bathroom was rank, stinky, the doors including balcony and front door don't even close properly, nor lock correctly and safely. The door in the first room which could be accessed by anyone as it had holes and huge gaps, you could even see into the room from outside. The bed was nearly at collapsing point, huge giveaways giving repellant spray that theirs a big problem, staff didn't help change room just watched us walk up 3 flights of stairs with our luggage, you can't use tap water to brush your teeth so water is provided AT A CHARGE, breakfast is totally poor, horrible nobody was even enjoying it, the hotel is FULL of older (look 40+) us being 21 felt too uncomfortable and made my partner in the pool feel very uncomfortable in a bikini! No wifi, charges a fortune, and after paying for your essentials you maze well book a 3star hotel. Staying in Harper hotel, and bliss surfer hotel is so much value and quality for your money for a few pounds extra. Stay away, honestly worst hotel of my life, oh and if you stay, don't being any valuables the site states it has a safe, it is in reception, you'll probably just about fit your mobile in it!!!

Ida Hotel, what can I say, you are amazing. Second time at your hotel and will be back again without a doubt. From the moment when you step foot into the reception to check in you feel welcome, the rooms are simple but beautifully neat - after all you are in Bali. The rooms are cleaned to perfection during your stay and the people that work in the restaurant are amazing! Breakfast has a range of choices and you overlook the pool while you eat. The grounds of the hotel are immaculately kept and the pool has crystal clear blue water all the time. This hotel still has a sense of fun, you can still dive in and have swimming races and not get told off. The food and drinks are well priced and the hotel is just around the corner from Kuta Beach, Matahari, Kuta Square and many other necessities you need but in its own little secluded area so there is absolutely no noise from the street. This hotel is ideal for anyone, from anywhere, on any budget. There are all types of rooms and I'm sure anyone will find something at the Ida Hotel that suits their needs. Amazing hotel, amazing staff. Home away from home - without the price tag! Thank you Ida Hotel, see you again next year!
