I was in room 6 - I walked in off the street after I arrived in Sanur a day earlier than expected. I only needed one night because I was moving into my villa the next day.
This room was so old and decrepit but it still cost me rp400k - so-called 'Deluxe' room. The shower over bath was dirty, the toilet was fine but the bathroom door didn't close so there was nothing stopping smells getting in. There are lamps on the bedside tables which I put on the floor because I was worried I would knock them over - they were really big and didn't even work anyway. I paid extra for a dvd player which only played my dvds (bought across the road in Sanur) in black and white. Later in my villa I played them in colour and it was fine, so it definitely wasn't the discs, it was their player. At least there was air-conditioning, that's all I can say about it really. The sheets seemed clean but they also had a kind of cologne smell which made me think they hadn't cleaned them really, maybe just 'brushed' them off. I was on the ground floor and the windows looked out at the car park - that's fine for a motel, but they were charging me 'Deluxe' prices - also the curtains were difficult to close, since when I pulled them gently to the left or right the velcro fastening immediately ripped off and I had to get up on a chair to fix them.
The staff speak no english almost at all - and they refused to turn on the eftpos machine so I was forced to walk half a kilometre in the heat while I was sick, in order to pay and check out. I almost thought it would serve them right not to pay at all - since they were making it so difficult - but I paid for the room AND the dvd player that didn't work. All up rp450,000. It was easier than trying to argue with them. Later on I stayed somewhere down the road that was absolutely gorgeous with great staff and everything included (no extra dvd charge) for rp400,000 - so I would say that there is absolutely no point in staying in this place. It doesn't function well as a resort, and it doesn't even meet the standard of a temporary motel-like option. So they should really just knock it down and start again. The only reason I've put two stars is because it is right in the middle of Sanur which is the best place in Bali.
