Stayed 3 nights. And 3 too many. Was not expecting much, but we ended up counting the days until our check-out date.
We had booked our room on booking.com and were given the bungalow by the pool.
Upon entering the room, we found a member of staff sweeping the floor in a hurry before we got there. Nonetheless, the room remained dirty, the bathroom smelly and the walls inhabited by a large population of spiders and other insects.
We asked for a different room and availed of one in the main building.
It was much better, at least at first sight.
The bathroom turned out to be as smelly as the first one, the shower head was broken and to top it off we went without cold water for 2 days out of 3. Meaning we only had a trickle of boiling hot water coming out of the-said broken shower head. Management said it was due to a malfunction of their water tank but no one came to fix it. I had to get my hair washed at a nearby spa and managed to shower using bottled water from the shop.
The bed was quite bad as well. I'm unsure whether it was due to it but I woke up every morning covered in small red insect looking bites and a rash.
The room had a fridge and a tv. But you couldn't use both at the same time because there was only one wall socket.
Management did not agree on giving us a discount for the 2 days we spent without running water. A bit disappointed to have paid for a service we did not avail of...
This hotel's standards are similar to those of a low budget losmen.
There are plenty of other places in this price range in and around ubud that offer
A clean bed, clean bathroom and good customer service.
