Despite the bad reviews about this hotel, i think CLIO has improvised! The rooms are very well maintain, clean, cool designs, the water runs perfectly (and the hot water too!), sleep quaility is excellent (i slept for almost 12 hours), the employees are very polite, helpful, made me feel like home. The value? God! If u can find a hotel with this price and quality around seminyak, i will kneel before u and kiss ur feet! My friends and I were very pleased with what CLIO has to offered, and yes, we will come back to CLIO! Speaking of...I'm planning to visit Bali again in March, I've booked a room at CLIO but this time...I'm going with my girl!

Clio is located in a back alley of Seminyak, close to Bali Deli. As it is rather new, the road leading to the hotel is unpaved and full of stones, and badly lit.

The hotel does not give me a sense of safety as the reception is located in a "store room" tucked at one corner of the hotel. Anyone can walk in to the main stay area.

However, as no harm came our way, I think I was just being paranoid.

The room is huge, which was the best part. The bed was surprisingly comfortable. We had good sleep every night. The bad part about the room was the open concept. The toilet and shower area is also the kitchenette. And there are no doors whatsoever. I shared a room with a girl friend of mine, and we weren't comfortable with this open concept at all. But the worst thing about the open concept is, one person had to vacate the room if the other wanted to take a dump. Which was really dumb.

The shower area was also badly built. When you take a shower, the entire floor gets really wet, including the kitchen floor, since the shower is in the kitchen.

Overall, we felt that the place was just quite badly designed.

We have actually booked in another villa & planned to come 1-2 days earlier than our actual booking to surprise an old friend & spend time with him. As we later found out that he was away for a business trip, he suggested CLIO as it was nearby his home & we immediately checked in.

Unfortunately the only available room was the loft, we took it anyway, and was mesmerized with the layout. My gf immediately loved it, it was perfect for the both of us & we didn't need a pool as the tub was more than inviting. We couldn't find any excuse to go out as the weather has been less than favourable, so we requested the staff to go shopping for us & buy groceries & enjoyed all the amenities in the room. I say you can't go wrong with a large LCD TV, homemade nachos & the company of your significant other. The kitchenette was a dream to use, I prefer cooking myself rather than eating out.

Too bad it was only far a night, but CLIO's Loft is definately going to be my next stop when I come back to Bali.

Having living and traveling to Bali in the last 5 years, Clio to me was like unearthing a hidden treasure! And surely, I have seen and stayed in many places and nothing beats this great value for money. Being in the heart of Seminyak, its location is convenient and the studios are equipped with all that you need PLUS space. Service is warm, friendly and always ready to assist.
What I most enjoyed is having a good quiet night's sleep in one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in and waking up to the birds chirping and the gentle trickling sound from the minimalistic water feature outdoors.
It will always be my first choice. Clio is Class!

Clio is located in a small lane in the middle of seminyak, a little hard to find at first but this is what made it very quiet at night.

We looked around for a cheap place for some time but most places in Bali are now way overpriced.
In the end we found an ad for clio and went to check it out..
took a while to find but once we did we were quite impressed with the minimalist design and we were looking for something air-conditioned and mosquito free, which clio seemed to offer

We ended up getting one of the new loft suites, which were a very cool design, with 42" sony screen and blue ray player and a blue ray library , ipod dock etc..

no where else has the same room features that we saw here..

was quite surprised to see a few negative reviews, as the place was full when we were there..sure there could be improvements, but it seems the focus is on a nice private room which they have definately have.

For the money, i would definitely recommend the place.

the room is big and clean also have a unique design ( just look like the photos in web). its very comfortable equipped with dvd,speaker, big mirror and also kitchen set. the bathroom doesn't have any door so it will be more suitable for couple. the ambiance is very romantic because the light is cloudy, but its too cloudy so it became quite dark. unfortunately the service is not 24 hours, there's no phone in the room so if we need something, we have to walk outside to the front office to find the housekeeping. currently there's construction in front of my room and its very noisy in the morning. its very disturbing. no breakfast, only fresh fruit and tea or coffee.
