It was a really good stay at Sense Hotel for us! So pleasant that I came back to write a review for it even after one month from my visit.

Location:
This small boutique hotel tucked has a wonderful location! Turn right and you are on your way to potato head beach club and the left on the main road are restaurants & bars.

Rooms:
The rooms are clean and simple. The beds are comfy and the size of the room is good.

Service:
I am sure you have read about how other travelers have raved about their services and I must say it was really good. Its service is unlike those you get in 5 star hotels. The unique point about their service is that they make you feel comfortable and will do their best to accede to your requests. During our first night of stay, the occupant above us was shouting very loudly on his balcony that it disturbed our sleep. During breakfast the next day, we mentioned it to one of the staff during her morning feedback routine and she immediately apologized and arranged for a change of room. I like how they try their best to improve on their service by listening and working on feedbacks given by guests.

Spa:
The spa rooms are spacious and really beautiful. We made spa/massage appointments everyday and decided to give our hotel's spa a try on the last day. It was definitely cheaper than those recommended online but was good in my opinion. My partner commented that the massage was the best throughout the trip. Give it a try :)

Overall the stay was pleasant and we are very pleased with the staffs. If you are looking for a simple yet service-oriented accommodation, Sense Hotel is the choice :)

Ps. The only negative part about the hotel was their Internet speed connection.

Room Tip: Rent a motorbike to get around! It's cheap and the hotel will be able to make the necessary arrangements for you. We had a great time riding n exploring Bali on our own.

A good value option in Seminyak. A great location - 5 mins walk for the beach and very, very close to the shopping area. Good cafes and restaurants around the hotel area. The staff are wonderful, very friendly and helpful - keen to make sure that everything is fine. Had a room with a sea view, a small balcony with a spectacular view of the stunning sunset. Room lacked character but was very clean and comfortable. Pool looked nice. Free wifi but quite slow.

Stayed: February 2013, travelled solo

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay at this boutique hotel. The service is outstanding and the staff were keen to do everything possible to make our stay a very comfortable one. From the moment we checked in to the time we left, we felt very well looked after. It was particularly pleasing to arrive at breakfast and find that the staff were so willing so cater for vegetarians - they offered us vegetarian fried rice and vegetarian noodles, in addition to the other items such as breads, pastries and cereals that were on offer from the buffet.

The standard rooms are a little smaller than we'd expected (particularly the bathrooms), but still very comfortable. The hotel is pretty new, and well maintained. It'd be nice to see the bathroom have a normal detachable shower as well as the overhead rain shower... just a minor suggestion for improvement!

Free WiFi is on offer throughout the hotel and is easy to use, even with multiple devices, however speeds are generally slow. We found that a simPATI 3G SIM card worked out better for surfing - it's really cheap to buy a starter SIM pack from a local shop and top it up with a data bundle.

In terms of location, the advantage of staying at Sense Hotel is that it is just walking distance from some wonderful places... 5 minutes away from Seminyak Beach and the Jalan Petitenget area. Check out the delightful Petitenget cafe if you're there... it's just a few minutes away from the hotel. It's so much cheaper to stay at Sense Hotel and walk 100m to get to the beach, rather than staying at one of the resort hotels located right on the beach. Also you get the benefits of being at a smaller boutique hotel and escaping the hustle and bustle of a resort.

We'd definitely recommend Sense Hotel to our friends and look forward to visiting again soon.

Room Tip: I would recommend a Deluxe room as they are more spacious than the standard one that we stayed in.

We have spent two nights so far at this hotel and have found staff very friendly and service excellent. It is situated in a very quiet street, but no problems getting a taxi and is only a very short walk from the beach and Seminyak shopping Mall. The breakfast is more than adequate with a selection of hot and cold. I will definitely stay here again and more than happy to recommend it to family and friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in the superior room, top level and the room size is good.

Purchased quite a cheap deal from Groupon Malaysia. An excellent place to stay in Bali if you want to avoid overcrowded area like Kuta. It is not too crowded but not too quiet either. Just in between. Stayed in a superior room which is comfortable and clean. Plus wifi is provided for FREE at the entire hotel. Staffs are super friendly and helpful, and they were willing to help us to call and book a tourist guide. The package include airport transfers, which is a bonus.
Five-minute walk to the beach, where swimming and sun-bathing is not allowed due to religious reason. But you can just walk for about 20 minutes to Legian and further down to Kuta (I took about 2 hours to walk to Kuta, with a very slow pace). So all in all, they have made my stay in Bali a memorable one.
