“good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

The Pelangi is situated in a lovely spot in Seminyak, nice walk to Legian along the beach, and far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be relaxing.
Wouldn't recommend eating there but the staff were very friendly and helpful. Is typical of the old rooms in Bali but that is part of the Bali charm.

Ok we read all the reviews.. and we got here on Wed nite 29th feb,, still here till the 10th March,, we are in the standed room,, so no balcona, but we dont spend much time there anyway,, after staying at the Aston last time in Nusa dua,, its a big change,, just the one pool.. very closed in walks going to to the front or back,, breakfast is pretty much like most hotels not fantastic,, not shocking. are finding some great places to eat & will pass them on soon. the room we are in 113 as like the other standed rooms.. is ok size a/c is very good,, but we like to have a fan going to move the air around and they dont have celing fans and you cant get a ground standing one off them. No bigger,, staff are loverly. Keep in mind this is a older hotel and is one of the oldest if not the oldest in this area,, before the others went up. Have had a couple of snacks here but was not that good,, so we eat out.. One place we found which is great is the Italian place about a 5/7min walk. go out to beach turn left go up to first main st walk past the rd works,, and its on your right on the corner,, yum yum,, also the supper place at the Antaran hotel,, its a fancy hotel and you do pay a bit more,, but you can just go up for tappers & a cocktail ect,, the veiw is fantastic.. and worth a trip too,..anyway this Hotel is not really set up for kids,, not that we have any but there is not that much for them to do compared to the modern Hotels.. Hope this helps anyone coming here..

We stayed here for 1 week in November
We found the room was damp/dark and we could not open our curtains/blinds because we literally could like straight into someone elses room and visa versa.
Pool was nice
Restaurant was ok.
Room was disgraceful
We stayed at the Nikko Resort in Nusa Dua which cost the same as this hotel and the quality and difference was ridiculous.
I would give the Nikko 5 stars
This 2 Stars.

I stayed in this hotel for my honeymoon. I booked the superior type and it took a 3 minute walk to get to our room from the front desk. There’s nothing special about the room, also it’s very dark. The wall is thin, we can hear other guests talk, so we can’t sleep until they stop talking, about 3am. However, staffs were very helpful and friendly, breakfast was good, room was clean, and the beach located right behind the restaurant. Reasonable price consider to the location, service, and good breakfast

Room Tip: take deluxe and above type

The hotel Pelangi pronounced (purr lang ghee) is very good and I'd stay there again tomorrow. Your taxi/driver, (we had a hotel transfer arranged and I think it is included in the room cost) will park at the top of a driveway and here you will get out and be taken to the reception which is just inside and to the right. There is also a bar here too but we never had a drink here. The hotel is built in two wings running from the road to the beach and is narrow.
Our room, 306 was down the hallway on the right. It was at the very far end and is the last room on this wing. It over looks the pool from a small balcony outside the front door. and from here you can just see the restaurant where you will have your breakfast.
Inside our room was a little lounge setting and to the right was the king bed. to the right is a small room which has a cupboard, dressing table and a place for your suitcase. The safe is in the cupboard. Ours was a deluxe room by the way. The is a mini bar and TV with lots of channels plus a sliding door that leads to a small balcony. Straight across you can see the other wing which looks to have larger rooms than the one we had.

The room was cleaned each day but at differing times. The air con was on all the time and is nice and cold. The bathroom was HUGE. and has a toilet, shower, separate bath and sink. So if there were two of you one could shower in the bath and one could use the shower. The water was a little hit and miss in regard to temp and pressure. But still very good.

Leaving our room you walk back toward reception but take a flight of stairs down and once at the ground you walk to the right which will take you to the very nice and quite large pool. The restaurant is just around to the right. You will have tickets to hand over to get your meal which is buffet style, There is a chose of different Indonesian style foods plus bacon, sausages and other items. They have a staple set of food that did does not change but then change a few of the items to give you a range.
There is fresh fruit, coffee, toast and really quite a lot to eat. As you stand facing the ocean which you can get to through a gate just past the pool and down a couple of steps, is the egg station, any style you like and cooked very well.

If you walk out of the hotel through this back gate you are on a path that runs along the beach. At the moment (2012) there are small warungs and bars here but I believe they are to be moved and they should not have been built so close to the water.
Walking to the left takes you to Cocoon and then on to Melasti Street and then on to Kuta.

To leave your hotel you walk out of your room past reception, down a flight of stairs, past security and your on the small road out the front of the hotel to the right is a dead end but to the left it is only a short walk to Jalan Dhyana Pura, Once you get here, left takes you to the beach and to the right take you shopping our to a lot of restaurants. The is also a very good money changer on the right hand side inside a small but well stocked supermarket.

Selamat sukses
Andrew

Room Tip: We had room 306 and it was very large and on the right wing.

Stayed with my husband and 5 year old son for 4 nights. Weidn't expect much because we had read all the reviews and our hopes weren't up. We were quite positively surprised, the room was ok, clean, of course smelled a little bit of mould but we exactly weren't much in that room. The bed was big and comfy, the AC worked well. At first when we arrived they gave us the room with 2 beds and when we asked extra bed for our son they said they'll charge 60USd per day for it. We said that we don't pay that kind of money and asked for a room with a king bed, we thought that we'll sleep together in one bed for one night and then change the hotel. For our surprise the room with the king bed they gave us, had already extra bed in it and we didn't have pay for it. The breakfast in the restaurant was ok but once we ordered some salads for lunch and they were terrible. We ate on the beach at the warung Chirinquito at the right side from the hotel beach exit.They had excellent food and we even managed to talk them to sell us a bottle of local wine for 150000 (it was 240 inthe menu). The local wine appared to be quite good :) We didn't go much outside of the hotel by foot, we had our own driver who picked us up from the hotel and we drove around to the temples and markets etc. During our stay in the end of Jan.2012 the beach was extremely dirty, compared to this, the beach in Sanur was like paradise.

Room Tip: We stayed at 138 (downstairs) and were satisfied, quite near the pool, and there is no opposite room...

Stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be a very nice 3 star hotel. The pool was very nice, warm and clean, the pool bar attendant very helpful and chatty and made a fuss of my 7 year old daughter. Access to the beach was very easy, beaches not being my thing I won't comment on that. The restaurant was clean, staff helfpul and the outlook over the beach and pool was very nice. As it was rainy season when I stayed there it rained very heavily one morning and as the restaurant doesn't have glass in the windows only rattan blinds, the wind and rain were blowing in and creating a bit of a hazard although a staff member was there trying in vain to keep the area clear as much as he could, not his fault - it was an immense downpour. Well done for trying.
This property is very long and narrow which at the end of a long, hot, humid day was annoying in that I had to walk what I considered too far just to get to my room, a minor problem though. Also, as it is on 2 levels with the pool at ground level I felt a lift would be a welcome addition to get to my room on the top level. It is hard when you are trying to carry towels, and all the other stuff my daughter wanted in the pool to climb stairs with wet feet.
The hotel itself is situated at down an alley at the end of the main shopping street in Seminyak, about 200 meteres or so to the shops and restaurants themselves, this makes for a very quiet hotel and for the duration of my visit I did not hear a sound which is important to me.
The best indictment I can give the Pelangi is this... I would stay again.
