I come to Ubud often and really wanted to stay in the center of Ubud for a change and have the option of stepping out to a pletoria of restaurants and bars without worrying about transport. In addition, as I am highly sensitive to the Bali's bugs and mosquitoes, another important criteria was I wanted a modern yet cosy room with cable TV and equipped with a clean, modern and functional bathroom without the outdoor "mossy" features.
Cinta Inn really met up with all my requirements during my 5 days there. It is super convenient as it is situated on Jl. Monkey Forest - a main drag in Ubud. The Inn itself is located behind its very popular bar and restaurant (Cinta Grill), yet upon entering the hotel premise you donot feel/hear the outside buzz. Instead you are met with a peaceful and calm little haven. There is a small pool with a nice little lobby area. Colours are light blue, green and white - very relaxing. It is as stated an Inn, there are only 7 rooms and the rooms are comfortable and clean but not lavish with a balcony for you to sit out and chill. Very nice functional and clean bathroom- with shower. There was adequate luggage space for two and enough room to store belongings in the wardrobe. The room is equipped with WIFI, cable TV and an Ipod dock. My only gripe is that there were no fridge or complimentary coffee/tea making facility.
Our room came with breakfast. Breakfast is really really great here as the Cinta Grill is an excellent restaurant. You are free to select items from the Breakfast menu and your breakfast comes with a choice of juice or fruit and coffee or tea. As we were there for 4 nights we really had the opportunity to try several things on the breakfast menu and it was all very very good. The egg benedict is outstanding but I have to say my favourite were the pancakes. The egg benedict was cooked just right, warm toasted muffins atop with poached egg cooked perfectly and topped with creamy smooth hollandaise sauce. The pancakes are seriously very good here. There is the buckwheat pancake with blueberry which comes with a nice caramelised banana and the normal pancake with raspberries and caramelised banana. Cinta Grill overlooks the busy Jl.Monkey Forest, so it is a great place to sit in the morning and watch the world go by.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, invisible but ready with a smile when you need them. There is no parking at this Inn, so if you have a car that is a major problem. However most of the key hotspots (Ubud market, Ibu Oka, Tutmak and shops) are a 5-10 minute walk away. There are 2 minimarts within walking distance. In addition there are alot of spas on Jl. Monkey forest and I highly recommend Kayma Spa. We rented mountain bikes to go around and it was exceptionally reasonable - RP 25,000 per day.
Cinta Inn is really a great little haven in the center of Ubud.
