“Nice hotel but needs improving”
Reviewed 5 March 2013 via mobile

Stayed at this hotel 5 nights. It is a mix bag of rooms. They have basic cheaper rooms with fan and with shubby bathrooms, also they have really nice rooms with fan or A/C, clean and hot water bathrooms but you pay a little bit more. Also swimming pool is a bonus. It is věry close to Monkey Forest so the monkeys come to the garden in the morning and evening. It is quite fun ať first but you have to be careful and close your bedroom door otherwise they can grab whatever they see:) Breakfast is included, very basic, tea or coffee, fruit salad, omelett or pancake or jaffa but they rotate it every day. Overall it definitely needs improving Its service otherwise friendly staff. Would I stay again? Not sure!

I got an AC room, which was a bit more expensive, but totally worth it as it was very clean and comfortable. I suggest you skip the breakfast and eat elsewhere, unless your budget is very tight, because it's not very good. There's a nice swimming pool and gardens, and the location is great. Right on Monkey Forest Road, I was woken up by the monkeys jumping on the rooftops every morning. You can't get that in many places.

Room Tip: Ask to see an AC rooms and a fan room before you make a decision.

The owner of the hotel offered us the accommodation after we got off the bus from Kuta. In comparison to other hotels/hostels/bungalows, that we have visited in Indonesia, the negotiations concerning the price were very hard there. Finally, we stayed there, but in quite dark and very wet room in ground floor. The humidity in the room was a big problem, since we stayed there three nights and all our stuff was very damp:-(

The location is perfect if you want to visit the Monkey Forest (2 minutes in walking distance). However, the location is quite far from the city centre; better restaurants and all other necessities are quite far (every evening we had to go up the hill to the city center).

I would recommend the accommodation for those who are looking a simple accommodation just for quick overnight stay; for those looking accommodation for longer time, try to find something closer the centre.

Finally, try to rent a motorbike in another place, the offered places made no sense to us and, again, little bit untypically, the owners were not opened for any negotiations.

My partner and I stayed here had a great time. We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay for a few nights and it was perfect. If you're looking to stay somewhere whilst exploring Ubud on a bit of a budget it is a good option. Depending on the time of year you may be able to bargain the price down too.

We stayed in a double fan room which had everything we needed. The room itself was quite spacious and airy. The bed was fine (big), though the mattress may be a little hard for some. We weren't necessarily looking for somewhere with a pool or breakfast so that was an added bonus. The pool is nice, though small. The staff were great, very friendly and relaxed (as you might expect in such a chilled out place).

A word of warning- it is quite close to the monkey forest and gets quite a few visitors from there. This didn't bother us (it's all part of the experience) but we did have monkeys rummage through the bin outside our room at one point! Having said that, the staff generally do a good job of deterring them if they are getting too close to the rooms.

Overall it was great value, it meant we had more money to spend on restaurants/cooking courses/massages! I would definitely recommend it.
