“Cute”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

Small hotel down a quiet street very close to the beach. Very nice pool area and restaurant with very reasonable prices. Most importantly the staff is some of the most accommodating I've encountered on Bali in "budget" hotels (the value for your money here is well above average). Christina at reception was especially helpful. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to hang around sanur on a budget!

Nice place. Down a secluded type road and very quiet. The birds are great but they woke us up fairly early. We only stayed one night so would probably get used to them if we stayed longer. Beds were comfy. Boys room had open windows which they loved the air but they didnt have aircon. We had aircon and mosquito nets in our triple room Breakfast was nice but very basic to choose. Pool looked refreshing. All in all it was clean and quiet place to hang out. The staff were friendly. Not far to the beach once you know where to go.

Staey here after Christmas.Big clean rooms.Great little cafe on the premisis,with good food at the right price.Nice pool but a little in the shade,but no problem.If you are traveling alone there is no chance to meet people because everyone is a couple,other than that I would recommend this place for a nice stay not that far walk away from the beach.Prices are very reasonable for a private room.Wi Fi not great but this seems to be the norm in Bali.Recommended

Room Tip: Try some food in their cafe

This was the theirs time we stayed at Prima,just for one night before going it Gili.
The staff are really friendly and helpful especially this time as my partner booked the wrong date and they still a managed to accommodate us with a late check in, leave our luggage with them and chill by the pool whilst we waited for our room. The rooms are clean,the beds comfy and a nice extra to provide small toiletries.
In the morning our taxi arrived early and they boxed up my breakfast so could take it for the road.
It's located away from the main road so close to everything as well as about a10 min walk to the beach where there are lots of restaurants.Although we found the best restaurant is actually just around the corner from the hotel Lilla Warong, best place we've eaten at in Sanur.
Thanks again to the lovely staff.

Prima was a nice stay. It was clean and well maintained. The pool was lovely as the beach was a good 10min walk but the location was close to the main street. Just down the road "Donnys Warung" was a great place to eat, I highly recommend her food both thai and western, don't be put off by the modest setting the food is excellent. The breakfast at the cottages was tasty but very minimal.

Just a warning about getting a taxi through them particularly if you have an early morning flight, we were quite disappointed when we were reassured twice that a metered taxi would be called for us and instead we got a dodgy taxi that wanted to charge a ridiculous price.

Dear Guests

Thank you for spending your precious time to write review!
We are grateful for nice words about hotel.
That night we really call "a meter taxi" what we did not know that taxi driver will be so reluctant to switch on meter and actually take advantage of fact that it was night and no other choice to get to airport on time.
We have learn the lesson and now we use the only one qualified and reliable tax in Bali- Blue Bird,rather than local Sanur ones so hope no more disappointed guest at least..

This was the first hotel we stayed at for the start of our holiday. We landed in Bali and literally needed a hotel for one night as we were getting on a boat the following morning for a trip to the Gili Islands. This review is therefore based on a one night stay and breakfast.

I want to start off by saying that we got to the hotel very late and there was still someone on the desk waiting to greet us. He provided us with all the details we needed, including WiFi, and led us to the room.

The room itself was very clean. tiled floors, good air con and the bed looked fantastic especially with the mosquito net set up. All in all looked very good. A good nights sleep was had by both of us.

In the daylight the cottage grounds looked very nice. The pool looked small but clean and the decoration around the edges looked very nice.

We were given menus for breakfast promptly and had a choice of a number of dishes. The food was prepared quickly and was of a good quality.

All in all I was very impressed with this set-up. It did not cost us a fortune, the location seemed decent, everyone was friendly and the room did more than just serve a purpose.

I don't know if I would want to stay at this cottage for the duration of a big holiday, but for a short stay it was fantastic for us.

The pool area is the only nice bit about this place. The 2 ladies on reception were consistently indifferent to us during our 3 night stay and not very welcoming. Not what you expect in Bali.

Our room was circa 1985 with little changes since, but quite spacious. The TV was about the size of an ipad and the phone didnt work. I was told it would be fixed but it wasnt. The bathroom was ok and in general it was pretty clean.

The restaurant area, which looks out onto the pool, is quite nice with friendly staff. But awful food. We ate lunch when we first got there but it was really bad. At breakfast there was just 1 person doing everything and they were too busy to notice that there was no juice/tea/coffee left every morning. The choices were poor and basic with many options to pay for extras that would turn it into a normal portion.

A parrot in a dirty cage constantly screamed for help to anyone that would listen. We could hear it from our room and were woken by it. Talking of noise, next door appeared to be doing a lot of building work which was noisy.

Forgetting all that, when in the pool you can relax and the area around the pool, with its palm trees, is nice.

Dear Guest,
We apologize for not meeting your expectation as much as you wish for.
However we always display that we are 2* property and with average room rates of 35 USD/room(equivalent of dinner for 2 at Sanur beach restaurants)major changes to inventory is quite limited.
We accept 24 hour cancellation from our guests in case of changes of travel plans or any other reason.Therefore we were surprise that if you felt less pleased you still kept your initial 3 days reservation and even extend your stay by one more night.
In hotel restaurant we serve simple usually local meals affordable to our guests.
Bird cages are cleaned once a day and we have plan to change them in the middle of next year after all rooms refurbishment and modernization.
Tv set in standard rooms are 19 " for a 15 sqm room size and 21" for slightly bigger cottage.
Most of travelers are happy with reception staff they work hard to ensure guests enjoy their stay with us!
