“Ubud and Matahari Cottage revisited”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

My second stay at Matahari was probably better. I was in the lovely Rembulan room, above Goa. Staff friendly and helpful. Loved the banana pancake for breakfast, sitting by the pool. Its a quaint place, close to Bali Buda restaurant, Post office, banks and about 5-10 minute walk (depending on how many shops you stop at!) from the Ubud Market and main shopping area. Ive recommend a couple of friends to stay there too and they were happy. If you want to change your room and there is another one available, they are happy to reorganise things. Just ask about laundry, massages, internet and other services. They also organised tickets for the Elephant Park and Balinese Dance Show for us… There is a new restaurant being constructed, so Im looking forward to my next visit.

Room Tip: Close to rainforest, but no mosquitos in April ;)

Very good location with stunning views of the overlooking thicket!! Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of Ubud but easily accessible. Swimming pool is excellent

I stayed at Matahari Cottages in August 2013. I spent the first night in the Barong room - thankfully for only one night. The beds were small and uncomfortable. There was nowhere to sit other than on the front porch if you don't mind being biten by mosquitos. It was dark, dingy and stale. The toilet was outdoors through a scary, dark, unloved 'garden'. I was terrified taking a shower while being pelted with water from a moudly dragons mouth.

Moved to the Sunshine room for a further two nights which was more bearable. This was not a themed hut but was lighter, brighter and more spacious - and also cheaper. It was very basic and a bit stale & mouldy but at least I didn't feel scared.

Also beware of returning to your hut after dark. The surrounding alleyways become a little desolate and dangerous at night time. They are patrolled by stray dogs who don't like trespassers. My partner and I were barked at and followed until my partner was biten on the ankle. Even on the following night when we teamed up with a group of people to walk the alley, we were still intimidated by the pack of local starving, desperate strays.

The breakfast was terrible. We heard many guests around us complaining also. Minimal choices, cold eggs, poor fruit.

We payed around $65 USD a night on average (varies for different rooms). I suggest paying a little more and staying at the clean, modern, safe Yulia on Monkey Forest Rd for $75 per night - a much nicer experience.

Room Tip: Steer clear of the Barong room - stale, dark, scary.

They were so sweet and accommodating. I was not happy with the first room they put me in but they changed me with no questions and i LOVED the room I ended up with! It was large and quiet and beautiful! I highly recommend this place to anyone!

Three days in ubud-bali, and i was recomended by my friend who stayed here a month ago. The location is in near the central of ubud, in jalan jembawan.
When i entered this cottages, i directly felt comfortable, with no noise, no polution, and no disturbing things. The staff was very friendly. They had big rooms with unique interiors, and also big bathroom. The pool was very enjoyable and nice.
If i could visit ubud again, i'll stay here again, recomended !!

Nice budget option for simple cozy rooms. Every room in this place has it's own theme. We stayed in the primitive room that was just awesome. Lovely refreshing pool in a wooded setting, close to town but still down a side street that gave it some quiet. As with other places in Bali, it's the staff that really shines, always smiling and helpful and wishing a pleasant greeting.

Room Tip: The rooms don't quite live up to the web-published pictures but were still quite nice and basic...

Very comfortable cottages. Nice swimming pool and excellent breakfast every morning. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. It was a good place to get away from all the traffic and busyness of Ubud! There was some construction happening across the valley while we stayed that could be heard from our room which the hotel itself couldn't help. We would stay there again!
