I spent one night at Grandmas Hotel in February. I booked as I ended up flying in to Bali a day earlier, due to the flights being considerably cheaper. I had already booked 5 nights at a Villa in Seminyak, so just wanted somewhere cheaper to spend the first night.
On the plus side to Grandmas Hotel, the staff were very nice and helpful. There was a small pool at the front, which was very refrshing to go for a dip in. There is a cafe attached, and the breakfast I chose (maple pancake) was nice and great value.
On the negative side, the room was tiny, but this was expected. However, I didn't find it to be very clean, particularly the bathroom. A lot of the silicone and grout in the bathroom had blackened, leaving it looking grotty. I didn't end up using the shower, deciding to wait until I checked in to my next hotel, because it was really dark and the grout looked mouldy.
Also, the bathroom had only a tinted sliding door, not offering a lot of privacy.
It seems at the front of the hotel there is a taxi racket going on. We went to get a taxi as a metered blue bird taxi had just pulled up. As we approached it another man, who had a transport car', opened the taxis door and exchanged heated words. He ended up thumping on the top of the taxi and trying to kick it as it drove away. It was really intimidating. The security at the front asked us where we were going, and loaded our luggage into the aggressive man's car, despite me saying I didn't want to travel with him. In the end, we relented and got in the taxi. The driver was okay, however, I didn't like that I couldn't catch a metered taxi fom Grandma's Hotel (and we didn't want to drag our luggage down the uneven street to try and flag one down).
It's an okay hotel for a short stay, but I wouldn't recommend it as your primary hotel.
