I booked this hotel during peak season at the end of Ramadan and it was so cheap I wasn't expecting much, especially as I had booked it only 10 days before I was due to go. So I was delighted to find that it was in an excellent central location while still being quiet, and that my room had a huge terrace where I could sit drinking tea or coffee (which is always awaiting you with flasks of hot water when you get up or come home) overlooking rice fields. The Balinese style building was lovely, the rooms spotless with comfortable beds, hot shower and bath and the nights are cool, so the fan was perfectly adequate and powerful enough to ensure I got a good night's sleep. The breakfast was simple but delicious, they make a mean scrambled eggs on toast with fresh fruit just right to set you up for the day.
My favourite thing though were the family who run the hotel. They were so nice, friendly and welcoming, even though I arrived at 2am and they hadn't got my message that I would be so late due to an error on my part. Mr Yannick drove me himself to places including airport transfer at a reasonable price, which is nice and convenient when so many taxi drives try to rip you off =) He also gave me some excellent advice on travelling and was so helpful. I felt really looked after.
If you are the kind of person that likes to relax by the pool/spa of a luxury hotel, then this is not for you; there is no pool and no garden or restaurant facilities. But if you want value for money, excellent location, cleanliness and a charming, authentic Balinese experience with warn, friendly people, then I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Loved this place and will be returning there when I return to Bali in December.
