I stayed here a few times about 5-6 years ago when it was under a different name. It's the same owner and family that owns and runs it. They still remembered me after all these years. The area has gone through some changes and the prices have doubled. It's a great place to stay if you are looking for traditional Balinese guest house. It isn't a hotel but competition in Ubud is fierce now so it could be a bit below standard to some.
What does make it so nice is the location. Very central, located among rice fields, off the main road. It's a bit of peace from the chaos. I've only stayed in the top rooms which are airy and spacious. There is a big king sized bed on pedestals and traditional wood carvings everywhere. A private balcony with a thermos of hot water to make tea and coffee whenever you like. They change it all the time so you have fresh cups and hot water. Pretty nice, I think. There is a good sized pool as well. Breakfast is good especially the coconut banana pancakes, served whenever you want it on your own private balcony. The staff are really helpful and can arrange transport and anything else one might need. I don't know why other reviewers say the owner snoops around. That's not true at all. He is around placing incense and offerings throughout the terraces of all the rooms only in the mornings. After that, I never even see him, he's super busy. Maybe to some that is "snooping" but it's Bali and that's how they live their lives. The staff is also always cleaning and sweeping the property. They respect your privacy but it's a guest house in Bali among rice fields. The family live on the property, you will see them.
There's been a lot of building around so I would stay here as soon as possible before the views of rice fields disappear. This was one of my favorite places I've ever stayed anywhere.
