We stayed at the Abangan Bungalows 3 nights in April. The grounds was beautiful, lush and well kept. The bungalow we had the # 7 was one of the largest with 2 bedrooms, one down staire and one larger up staire with a queen size bed in each. There were also 2 large but very basic with tiny sink bathrooms. However hot water was plentiful and the AC was working well too. Even there was no seating area inside the bungalow there was a nice verandah for each of the bungalows with table and chairs where the breakfast was been served every morning. Abangan is well situated and of walking distance to the market and the palace. And there stops the nice things of that place. Now are the bad things that we had endured during the first two days of our stay: the hotel was not well kept, it's seemed abandoned by the owner. We didn't see him or her the 3 days we were there. The windows didn't shut well, the down stair bedroom has no chair or table or closet or cloth hangers. And the most horrible thing on our first night there was that the sheets and pillow cases smelled like someone with a bad body odor problem who used cheap perfum had slept in our bed! And both beds smelled that same horrible odor. And then there was the smelly toilet and broken toilet seat and broken sink tap. There was not any towel hanger nor any hook in the bathroom to hang our clothing neither. And the last straw was the smell of cat litter on the alley going to our bungalow. We travelled with a friend of my and she was so disgusted with all those things that she just stayed only one night in Abangan. Since we had paid in advance and had only 3 days in Ubud and did not have time to go hotel hunting, I decided to take the matter into my own hands so on the second day, noticing that the bed still smelled bad even though the sheets were changed, I asked the room boy to gave me two sets of newly washed sheets, then I went to the market to buy the strongest toilet cleaning products and cleaned the toilet by myself. And after that our stay there was more pleasant. So on our last day we really enjoyed eating our breakfast on the verandah, looking out at the trees and flowers and thinking that Bali and Ubud are really magical places to visit.
