I have just returned from 9 nights at the Saren Indah hotel with my boyfriend.
It was utterly fantastic - the room was immaculate and cleaned twice a day, it had a huge and comfortable bed with mosquito net, a good hot shower/bath, powerful air-conditioning and a TV with BBC World News!
The free breakfast was excellent, varied and plentiful and the lunch/dinner menu while limited was of excellent quality and available all day.
The pool was deliciously cool and it & the surrounding area was always immaculately clean with a good supply of towels.
I can't say enough positive things about the staff - at every turn they were unbelievably helpful, courteous and friendly. The Saren Indah runs a free shuttle bus on the hour into wherever in Ubud you wish to go and will pick you up at 20 past the hour. However if you prefer to walk into town, it's only a 5-10 minute walk through the Monkey Forest.
In essence, the quality and service of the hotel far, far surpassed the incredibly cheap price and I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone.
A final postcript - Ubud was a fantastic place to stay, I would most recommend seeing a Kedak & Fire Dance one evening and visiting the elephant safari at Taro (Bali Adventure Tours one, not one of the impostors) as they were superb.More
