“Just lovely - for a really good price”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

I can recommend this place.
Lovely staff and place just outside of ubud. It is really easy to get to the center of ubud. And such price for a high standard guesthouse like kudos seems to me invincible in the area of ubud.
Anni will be ur host and she's got a lot of tips and recommendations for bali. Speaks fluently english and is really cool.
Im extending my stay here for the third time now. If there wouldn't be a lot more to see in bali, i'd just stay here i guess.

Guesthouse Kudos is a great place to stay. Ani and her team (Dewa and Moudy) were so helpful, friendly and warm. We stayed there for 5 nights and would of loved to have stayed longer. It was great to spend our last night there hanging out with Ani and would now call her a dear friend. We lost a day when we first arrived as we were sick and Ani was so kind to go out to the shop for us and Dewa ran me on the bike into town to get some medicine.

The rooms are spacious, clean and every day they went to great efforts to make our room comfortable and clean. They have a wide selection of towel arrangements. I think the flower was my favourite! They really made an effort with all the finishing touches.

There is a great choice for breakfast and the pancakes are delicious. We had a complimentary coconut to drink fresh from the tree on our arrival which was a really nice welcome.

Its an easy, straight 10-15 minute walk into town but which we enjoyed doing every day walking by the rice paddies.

There is a pool which you can use which is 100 metres down the road at Bintang Pari. The view there is amazing and the pool is very refreshing.

Overall I cant fault this place. Its great value for money and went beyond my expectations, the service was fantastic and I would definitely return here in the future.

Thank you Guest House Kudos!

I have recently returned from Bali spending 3 nights at the wonderful Kudos Guest House. The rooms were spotless, large and beautifully furnished. I loved the eating area and breakfast was delicious. The staff were like welcoming family and we were treated like royalty. Although it is a short distance from the centre of Ubud it is easy to get a taxi (cheap) or hire a bike . The swimming pool so very secluded and quiet is only a few minutes walk down the road as is the Bintang restaurant which delivers sumptious tasty meals (they shut at 9pm!) I would recommend this wonderful refuge to anyone and hopefully will return in the future.
My thanks and love to all the staff for making my stay so memorable.

Room Tip: We had 3 rooms all of which were excellent.

Lovely guesthouse, clean spacious room, lots of storage. Located just outside Ubud, surrounded by rice paddies. Attentive staff, beautifully served breakfast with local exotic fruits. The Manageress, Anni is a complete delight, really looks after her guests, gives them helpful advice and ensures that she gets the best rates when making bookings on their behalf. Cafe Bintang, a few doors away is a must for divine Balinese and Japanese cuisine.

This hotel is 20 mins walk from the center and we were pleased about that as its much quieter there. The rooms are huge, clean, and very well furnished. Unfortunately our room was not insulated and you can hear conversations going on in other bedrooms probably due to the fact that the ceiling is made of bamboo. Other guests coming in late at night and chatting on mobiles kept us awake. My son slept down stairs and he had no problems . However the best thing about this hotel is Ani the Manageress it was like staying with my mum !! she made sure everything ran smoothly for us during our stay, booked trips and transfers and is very genuine about the welfare of her guests she is also always there to chat to, for information nothing is too much trouble for her, Also Made and Dewan great staff always ready to help and their pancakes were the best we had in Indonesia ,,,please try cafe Bitang just down the road for the best Balinese and japanese food we had all holiday ,,,,

beautiful place away from the noise of the center. But can be reached on foot, 15 minutes to the center. Spacious room, clean, wonderful terrace and - surprisingly, almost no mosquitoes. the perfect place for relaxation, the opportunity to use the pool in the next door hotel, up to 11 pm, a delicious breakfast is available, it is very inexpensive. beautiful veranda roof and mattresses for yoga or just lie down and see the sunset a nice addition.
Very lovely manager Ani, and will always tell you and no impose unnecessary services and a responsible attitude when ordering a transfer for you.
I recommend ordering a taxi and transfers in Bali and the islands book through Ani-it is always cheaper, it is checked.
reality exceeded my expectations in this hotel because the price is small.

Room Tip: room on the 1st floor is convenient to exit directly to the veranda with a beautiful view of the ric...
