“Nice place, great spot”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

We stayed two nights here to visit Sanur and Denpasar.
It is a nice cosy place with that very Indonesian local flavour.
Not a luxuray place, though our room with verandah near the pool was tidy and specious.
WIthing 3 minutes from the beach with a beautyfull Sunrise around 5:30 with great view of Mounst Rinjani, Lombok and Angung, Bali. Nice and helpfull staff,

Reviewed 3 September 2013

Staff does not 'understand' questions they don't like. Instead of the booked sea view room, I was "upgraded" to a damp dark ground floor room right besides the "common" with blaring tv, drunken people drinking till late in front of your room, no privacy, (guess my room was given away to walk in's). Currently renovations going on (would have been nice, if been warned about that). It's all concrete buildings not a bit of garden in sight. Pool very small. Free wifi mostly not working. Breakfast a joke with just toast and jam. Location is on the access road to the ferries, busy traffic during the day, but too far north to walk back from town over the dark beach path or along the bypass road for a woman alone. The office staff very ungracious, I felt so uncomfortable there!

The Jambu Inn is located very close to the Sanur beach and board walk and this is probably its strongpoint.
I stayed in one of the cheaper rooms on the ground floor so I can't judge any of the pricier rooms.
My room was okay but small and in need of some updating / TLC...
The breakfast was simple but okay - just a pity that the toaster didn't toast at all - after 10 minutes you just ended up with a warm slice of bread... :)
The swimming pool is small but okay and it is a nice spot to sit and relax.
It's not my favourite hotel in Indonesia but it was okay for the price.

Not the best place ever...The room definitely need a refresh and the bathroom smells sewage (I know it's not their fault but it's really not nice!)

Plus side: good location : near the beach
nice staff
refreshing swimming pool

We had better hotel for cheaper price! But I guess for Sanur the price was ok..

We stayed at Jambu Inn for 3 nights in Feb 2013. We loved it. The property is well position very close to the beach and markets, and the grounds are glorious. There is a small pool;big enough to cool off and lovely shady areas to sit and relax.

We stayed in the deluxe room at about $40+ per night. The suites were very spacious and clean, very comfy bed and a separate living room with quality Balinese furniture, bar fridge and tv. Breakfast is basic;toast, fruit etc, but perfectly adequate.

If you are looking for a western style hotel, Jambu is not the place for you, but if you are looking for beautiful Balinese ambiance and a small boutique style guest house/hotel this is it.
The staff are very helpful and gracious. We will definitely stay at Jambu hen we next travel to Bali.

sure its close to the beach, but not maintained at all. rooms are poor - air con didnt work in ours. breakfast was bad - toast and tea.
hotel has very small pool and I found it very dirty.

3 min walking distance to the beach and shopping street. Friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms with hot water, TV, breakfast, AC and a small pool just outside. A bit pricey, but worth it if your in Sanur for a day or two.
