I stayed at BGS in Balcony Suite No 2. I have never stayed in a boutique hotel before and I would definitely stay at BGS again. What I particularly loved was that the staff know you by name are are just so absolutely kind and helpful. Other than that a big plus is that the owner Lou was around a lot and gave recommendations on where to go and eat. There is also a list of some of the best spots in the room guide.
Further to this it is the little things that really make BGS stand out to me. The bed and bedsheets were better than my own at home. The TV is a good size and has a HDMI port that is easy to connect. There are heaps of power points all around the room. Drinking water is provided. The pool is gorgeous and intimate and you usually have it to yourself. The toilets have a water trap (stops the awful smell from the drainage system), which is common practice in Australia but not in Bali. A lot of the other accommodation that I saw in Bali does not have this and many of my friends complained about the smell of bali plumbing in their other accommodation.
Breakfast - For breakfast there is a handful of options but that is all that you need. From memory the options are bakery goods, muesli, omelets and pancakes. The omelets were really good...
Noise - You can hear the bass from the adjacent clubs at night and as soon as the music stops the roosters start. This didn't bother me and you would be hard pressed to find a spot where this wasn't the case in the tourist areas of Bali. During the day it is pretty peaceful.
Location - it is a ten minute walk to 'eat street' via Jln Drupadi. This is kind of a back street so it is dark at night and even though I generally felt very safe I didn't have the guts to walk it alone so its ~$0.70AUD in a taxi (hail down a bluebird taxi and ask them to turn their meter on before you get in). Its a 5 minute walk to the beach which has lovely sparkling volcanic sand. There is a laundry in the square which will wash, dry and press your clothes for $1AUD/kg.
