“Fantastic place to stay in Ubud”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

I stayed here for four nights whilst travelling Bali with one of my friends and we had a fantastic stay. The location is great, secluded with rice field views but you only need to cross a bridge to be on monkey forest road and in the centre of Ubud.

The room was lovely, well air conditioned and the balcony had a gorgeous view of a stream. It literally felt like paradise.

And the best thing about it all was the staff. All so welcoming, so friendly and so helpful. They got us incredible deals for the sunrise trek up my Batur (350,000 each and much better than we saw anywhere else) and also transfers to Padangbai and Gili T for a fraction of the price quoted anywhere else in Ubud.

Also, when my friend broke it in a rash from some bug bites one of the guys went out and got her some soothing powder while we had breakfast. Wouldn't take a penny for it either. Really above and beyond!

I'd highly recommend Nicks to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Ubud.

We were excited about staying at Nick's pension. Was super happy to found it. And result - as expected ... and even better. The staff is excellent, the room was perfect (only the bathroom is a bit disappointing), the place is super calm and outside the busy part of the city (while still close to the center).

Breakfast were really good, swimming pool is nice. I can only recommend this venue :)

I enjoyed my stay in bali. Staff is extremely nice. The breakfast is amazing, Few things I don't like are the numerous steps and the amount of walk from the main road. However, the spa is really good.

This was my fourth stay at Nick's Pension... I keep coming back because it's wonderful! The location and setting is fantastic...beautiful gardens and rice terraces, close to town but quiet, a lovely pool and good restaurant. But what makes it really special are the staff. They are so friendly and helpful and genuinely welcoming, they make your stay a delight.

We stayed at Nick Pension for 3 nights in my last Bali trip and I think I will pick the Nick Pension again for my next Bali trip for no doubt. The paddy field is just next to our room and we can enjoy the paddy field view from our private balcony.
We love the room, the garden, the pool and the peaceful surrounding. Hope to stay in Nick Pension again for my next Bali trip!

I stayed at Nicks Pension for 5 nights while visiting Ubud with my little sister. If you are wanting somewhere affordable, clean, good location and in a beautiful setting then I can highly recommend Nicks Pension. The gardens are peaceful, and you have rice paddies surrounding some of the rooms. It is in an excellent location, a short walk down the hill to the main Ubud strip, a shortcut to the monkey forest area of Ubud and a 15 walk to some great eating spots in Penastanan. You couldn't get a better location.

The staff are fabulous, they will add to your Pension stay, everyone we meet was helpful, friendly and caring. Whether you need advice on tours, directions or just to chat about Bali.

If you are looking for a good, warm homely feeling place (not a five star resort) to base yourself and discover Ubud you can stop looking and book here.

I will return when going back to Ubud.

Unfortunately, I only stayed in Ubud for 2 nights as a whistle stop tour.... Nicks pension was by far the best hotel I stayed in during my 5 weeks travelling. The location is great, fantastic pool ; a hidden treasure. The rooms were also fantastic, with our own private balcony. I would definitely return here - top notch!
