I have been travelling to Ubud for many years and everytime I stay here. This is a unique hotel and a very, very special place. Over the years I have seen many changes (once upon a time the pathways were lit by oil lamps, the windows only had netting and no glass!) but no matter what it is the location and staff that make this place so special.
This hotel has a lot of history and the location by the river in a jungle setting is so tranquil and relaxing. The staff have always made me feel welcome and I have got to know many as friends over the years. There are a number of things to note before you choose to stay at this hotel. 1) There are a LOT of stairs - it is set on the side of a river gorge so if you have problems with your knees or need assistance walking then this may not be the best place to stay. 2) There are animals about, again by the river in the jungle so you may encounter squirrels, toads at night and the odd cat. This is a good thing because it makes the experience more authentic and in the case of the cats they keep rodents away. None of these animals will come into your room or disrupt your trip. 3)The bathrooms are a bit "dated", they are not well lit and look a bit aged this is not a factor for me at all and I have it on good authority that changes are to be made in the next year or so. 4) There are mosquitos - it's Bali, there are mosquitos everywhere!. For something a bit different from the standard hotels this is a real treat at a very reasonable price.
