We are currently booked into this hotel . Not a great first impression when you walk up to the front desk and greeted with the words when you ask about the rooms , sorry we don't take walk ins . We saw this listing on agoda and wanted to view the rooms first before confirming our booking as agoda and trip advisor has mixed reviews about this place. It's about a 5 min drive from the main ubud scene . Taxi cost 125 k a trip . We approved of the superior room and booked through agoda . As the hotel was away from stores we decided to stop at a local store for some basic supplies before heading back to the hotel . On our return we were horrified to learn that they double booked the last superior room that we had viewed and booked . The lady at the front had no authority to sort this issue out so the manager speaks to us , offering their so called upscale hotel ( about 15 min away from this hotel ) at the same rate for their superior room booking . The taxi cost there is 400 k a trip . That was not an option for us . So he then offers us a standard room at a slight discount for our inconvenience . The standard rooms have no porches and giving our frustration and fatigue of travelling ,we decided to take it . A big mistake . The street light shines into the room at night . Lots of noise from the locals on streets . You can hear the trafiic go by .The wifi is non existent in the room ( a big fail as we are working on this trip ) . They don't have windows on a few windows , just a mesh with holes in them . Mosquitos were horrendous during our poor sleep . I have no idea how huge bugs Got into the toilet area . The toilet seems to be leaking .
The room itself is a fair size with a huge bath tub but the bathroom needs some love .
The fan seems to suffice in the room even though it's placed over the bed which some might find annoying . There is no telephone in the room so you need to walk to reception if you require their help .
I can't fault the grounds as it reflects typical Bali old world charm style . I will complete my review of this hotel at the end of my next 4 nights ! ( as we are stuck here due to no refund policy ) .
