“Breakfast has improved!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

This was my 3rd stay at the Favehotel and I was there for 14 days this time. My needs are simple - I look for budget accommodation while I rent my villa and so reliable free WiFi, a desk, a comfortable environment and a decent breakfast are really all I am looking for.

Generally speaking the Favehotel fits my needs well. The hotel remains much as my previous review - clean, comfortable, small rooms, good WiFi in an excellenet location.

After three stays I am less concerned about noise, but I would still want a room in the back block at the restaurant/pool end. On this stay I was on the top floor and there seemed to be strange noises coming from the roof, but they weren't too loud.

The big improvement since my previous stay was the quality of breakfast. The buffet options remain the same, ie somewhat basic, but the quality of the hot dishes (mainly Asian) was much better. They did a vegetable tempura on certain days which was really quite delicious. I'd certainly prefer to get a rate with breakfast now.

I've also stayed in Grandmas in the same area, which I like as well - overall I thought it slightly better with better management, but I'd have no problem choosing Favehotel if the rates are better, which they have been lately.

Tip: be sure to check the rates on their website when comparing prices. They offer a 10% discount there and in may cases this is the cheapest way to book.

We only stayed here one night, the night before our late flight, and it was a great place to stay. I wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer than one night as the room was tiny. It was a noisy place as right next door is a nightclub/pub and we could hear this from our room. We asked for a late checkout until 6pm the next day and we had to pay a very small fee to have this option which we were grateful for as we had a very late flight and needed to complete some last minute shopping. The hotel is in close proximity to the beach, we had to walk about 5 - 10 mins past some wonderful shops and stalls so were able to finish the shopping. The staff were wonderful and helpful. The free breakfast was ok.

Dear JoC,
I would like to thank you for sharing your great experience with us at favehotel Seminyak Bali via TripAdvisor. Your insight sharing of Seminyak has been beneficial for guests who are looking for a happening place in Seminyak, surrounded by Restaurants, Bars and Clubs, boutique shops, 10 minute walk to the famous beach of Seminyak, art shops or just to be yourself, staying in a great location with a great price.
Indeed, our location is closed to the famous bars and clubs on the busy street of Dhyana Pura, where the loud music can't always avoided. However it can be reduced by requesting the tower in the back, Tower A and our guests who book directly on our favehotel website, get first priority in that tower as they have the option to mention it at the time of booking instead of at check in as another option we do offer free earplugs for those who need them.
Best Regards,
Bonar Hasibuan

This favehotel is located in a nice location. Lot of shopping, food, and drinks near by. If you walk to the end of this road you will get to a place called La Plancha. Great place for sunsets! If you want night clubs they have it also on this street.

For $36 AUD a night including breakfast, great location for night life, beach and some good eateries... I'd suggest it's well worth it. Breakfast is ok, limited selection; You have to ask for fresh towels; It can be v.noisy; No fridge in rooms; Pool is ok for quick dip but not really good for hanging at but really for this price it's a bargain place, clean and tidy, no need to share rooms with mates. I would recommend given I came with group of girlfriends interested in being out of the hotel more than in it and wanted own room, somewhere clean and great location.

The balcony room facing the street is great for watching over what's going on, but everyone's right that there's no sound insulation whether the door is open or closed. You can hear motorbikes, music, and people talking all through the night. For a superior room, there's no permanent hairdryer (you have to loan one), no mini bar, just two flat pillows on a King size bed, no dressing table mirror, and just warm water in the shower with low water pressure. You can get a much better room at half the price in other areas.

I stay here for 2 days with my sons... The facilties are OK, and since the hotel have swimming pool the boys were happy. If you only need the hotel for sleep, then this hotel is enough. The bed and the bathroom quite clean. Very reasonable price
