I booked this hotel via Agoda for a couple of nights. It's right at the very bottom of Jl Bisma on the right hand side, just before the cobbled road crumbles away to mud, and access is down a short narrow access road next to a villa. There is a small car port for 2 or 3 cars, and reception is a small open air pavillion, with a staff member and a laptop. The receptionist Nuri was very friendly and explained about breakfast, the shuttle service etc, before escorting us to our room.
The hotel consists of a series of two storey blocks, the first couple of blocks obviously the original hotel overlooking a small pool and restaurant area. Next to this and up some stairs are a couple of brand new blocks with another pool.
We had a ground floor pool-view room in one of the new blocks, and the room was excellent for the price we paid, although it had only been opened a couple of weeks. The room was large and airy with a marble tiled floor, with a king size bed, fridge/mini-bar, flat screen TV with lots of channels, DVD player and a couple of DVDs. Through a door into the bathroom area was a wardrobe and safe, separate toilet, sink, bath and rainfall shower. A window separated the bathroom and bedroom, with a blind for privacy. The bed was on the firm side but okay. Sleep quality wasn't the best if I'm honest, mainly down to a constant drip-drip from somewhere inside the air-con unit, so it was a little like water torture. Other than that, it was a great room. There was a terrace outside with table/chairs and a bench seat, this overlooked the pool, then beyond that were rice fields.
Around the pools were plenty of sunbeds, with towels provided. If there weren't any towels, these could be requested from reception and delivered by hotel staff to your sunbed. Only the pool near the older blocks seemed to get the sun.
For breakfast, the night before you had to obtain a breakfast slip from reception, tick what you wanted and what time, then hand it back in. Didn't experience any delays in getting breakfast, and it was okay. Wi-fi is available around the restaurant area.
Location-wise, if you leave the hotel, turn right then head down the road, it soon crumbles into a dirt track. Follow the track and 5 mins later you're at the bottom of Monkey Forest Road just next to Kopi Bali House. Watch out for the mopeds who use this track, and bear in mind it's unlit so I personally wouldn't head down it after sunset, even with a torch. Walking up Bisma to Jl Raya, it's a good 20 min walk. There are a couple of spas, and a few restaurants. The nearest laundry is the Apel Laundry which is about a 15 min walk away. We used the hotel to get our clothes laundered and it was quite cheap.
If getting a car to the hotel, bear in mind there are two Inata hotels, this one and one on Monkey Forest Road, so make it clear it's the one on Jl Bisma.
Overall, it was a nice little hotel in a nice quiet location.
