The staff at Nick's was incredibly helpful from the moment we arrived. They scheduled a driver and tours for us around Bali. In the evenings, the staff arranged mopeds to pick us up and bring us to the center of town. The rooms are simple and very clean!

I stayed here for three nights with my three girlfriends. The trip was most enjoyable.
The people here were very warm, welcoming, happy and helpful which meant the hotel had a great feel good factor attached to it.
My friends luggage never arrived at the airport and reception went out of their way to help out by ringing airports, airlines and customer care numbers.
We did two day trips in our time there and they were both organised so smoothly by reception.
The rooms were nice. They had air conditioning and a safe. The showers were piping hot and the rooms were cleaned each day with fresh towels and water provided. The beds were a bit squeaky but comfortable.
You could hear the drumming from your room and that added to the Balinese charm not to mention being right beside a padi field!

Ubud was the first destination of my trip and we arrive at 4.30am and nicks pension were so accommodating they had someone at reception for us to check in after our 36 hrs of traveling. One of our bags got lost on transit and the staff were extremely helpful. They continuously contacted the airport on our behalf and gave us updates as we passed through reception each day. They went above and beyond with their hospitality. The food was lovely, the rooms were extremely clean and all the taxis they arranged for us were not only reasonably priced but they too went out of their way for us and our requests. I would highly recommend nicks pension. The location is right in the heart of ubud you can walk everywhere! Fantastic start to my trip!

We stayed in Nicks Pension for 3 nights while in Ubud in these gorgeous little cabins, fully air conditioned, wifi and complementary water. The people were so accommodating and friendly which made us feel at home. I would definitely recommend this to people who are looking to chill out and receive an unbelievable customer experience.

Nicks Pension has lovely cottages. Some overlook the ricefield and are set in a nice and very neet garden.You also have very nice cottages in de back which are more in the forest beside a small river.

We had the upper room with a very nice view of the ricefield. Big wooden room with muskieto net, clean. With a small beautifull carft wooden door as a entrance. Your have your own balcony. There is a small water boiler for coffee and thee. You get 2 bottles of water every day and clean towels. You close the door with a lock, just don't forget to lock te bodem one otherwise people still can come in. You have a safe to keep your valuables in.

Nicks Pension gives you a lot of very detailed information about everything in a book in your room. Excellent! And what you don't know you can always ask. They are very friendly and helpfull.

There is a pool we never used, simply because there is too much to do. The main road is a five minute walk. There is a front and a back entrance to the compound. Use the latter as a short cut.

The first day we had Breakfast it was a buffet and thought it was terribble so after that we went out to eat. The last day we had to eat Breakfast there because of the lack of time to go any where else and we could order a la carte. And it was good. So try your luck.

Negatives:
Very loud frog concert every night. We loved it. Bathtub does not fill up because of bad drain. Too short of a shower hose for the tall people. You have to shower sitting down in the bathtub if you're taller than 1.25 meters. There is some construction going on it didnt bother us, but it might some peolpe.

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 :)
