We stayed at the Merthayasa Bungalows for 9 nights in Oct-Nov 2011. After spending a week at a private villa in the rice fields of Penestanan, we were looking for something inexpensive closer to the action for the remainder of our stay in Ubud. For the price - 180,000 for a room without a/c - this place fit the bill.
We had a large fan-cooled room with two beds on the first floor of the second building in from Monkey Forest Road. The furnishings weren't much - one bamboo armoire with a few hangers - and a bathroom that wasn't very clean (but tolerable). We had no difficulty sleeping at night; the noise from the street didn't penetrate our room and we'd brought our own mosquito net.
A breakfast of fruit, banana pancakes and (strong) coffee was included and brought to our terrace each morning. The pool was one of the selling points of this place for us - it is a fair size and great to jump into after a hot day sightseeing in Ubud. Additionally, the bungalow staff were pleasant enough and were able to arrange some day tours for us.
We were happy enough with the place for the amount we paid.
