“Unfriendly front desk”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

Normaly we use it as accomodation for our staff, fair value and well located, happy so far till just now we have had an unpleasant experience with the front desk staff; unpleasant way to ask for upfront payment instead of taking the credit card print as a guarantee and uncomplete reports when voiding the charges made. At the end you walk out thinking if the fearures offered are really worth the hussle of having to deal with this wrong attitude which they make you see is based on house rules. Just a pitty that some individuals can spoil a good corporate concept, or maybe is the other way around

This budget hotel is perfectly located right next door to Sardine Restaurant - great sea food an rice paddy views, and it's also next to a great day spa and a Circle K convenience store. It's pool is big and clean, it's staff are friendly and it's rooms - although small - have all of the right amenities and for a budget hotel this is the right price. Front desk helped me rent an affordable motorbike, 15 minute free neck massage, welcome drink, free tea and cookies in the afternoon.
Basically it's clean and affordable and in the right place.

Room Tip: Get a 'Room with Balcony' - not for the balcony which isn't even big enough for chairs...

The stay at Favehotel Umalas was very pleasant - the staff was very friendly and responsive.

Pros:
1. Compact yet clean room.
2. Informative and helpful staff.
3. Very nice and clean swimming pool.
4. Beautiful looking rice fields view from the balcony.
5. Very good value for money - the best you can get for this price; I'd say.

Cons:
1. Very far from the beach. You will need to hire a bike/taxi to get to the beach. The Favehotel at Seminyak is located much closer to the shops and the beach.
2. Variety in food for breakfast is not that good - specially if you are a vegetarian like me.

Suggestion: Choosing the Favehotel at Seminyak is a wiser decision. We had no other problems with this property other than the fact that it was located very far from the beach and the shopping area.

Room Tip: We stayed at the 4th floor and couldn't hear any noise as mentioned by other reviewers - so mayb...

The hotel is chosen by the description and reviews. The result was not quite what they expected.
In general, the hotel is very good. But far enough from Kuta Beach (20-30 minutes by taxi), the rooms are tight fit and did not spoil the variety of breakfast (menu just not European).
