Stayed here for 41/2 nights at the end of our 3 week holiday in Bali. Just wandered in off the street whilst looking for some other villa's. Got a good "drop in" deal. Location is excellent!-hidden down a side alley just around the corner from Bintang supermarket. Secure look and feel. So close to Kuta, Legian, Seminyak and thousands of shops and restaurants.Amazingly very quiet in villas. Nice layout and design with heaps of space. We could have stayed there for weeks-even done your own cooking! Pools were plenty enough to enjoy.Service to villa was very good-staff were excellent-very friendly. Breakfast is ok-could do with a bit more effort. We stayed in more than one villa due to a booking issue and got a very late check out with an upgraded villa. Some parts of villa's are showing wear and tear-but this is Bali! Overall the full package is a winner for us-we would certainly book here again.

Room Tip: Haggle for a cheaper rate or a better deal.

We stayed at In 3 bedroom villa in May with another family and loved it. The pool was lovely, location perfect and staff so friendly. The villas were also nice and clea and the rooms big enough to get extra mattress on floor for kids.
My only area for improvement would be poor water pressure in upstairs bathroom sinks only (which really didnt matter as we used bottled water to brush teeth), not enough warm water to fill bath and the breakfasts which were included were average.
Other than that i would highly recommend this place for families, also a great spot for celebrating a special ocassion as the inside opens out to the pool, which sets up as a great place for a party.
Our friends stayed next door in 2 bedroom villa which was exactly the same just without the external bedroom on the ground floor.
Also acoss the road from supermarket was great. Villas have large fridges.
I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Downtown for 10 nights in 1 bedroom villa which all have a plunge pool large enough to cool off and deck area with 2 sun lounges, table & chairs.
The rooms have kitchenette which is great as they are very close to Bingtang supermarket and not far from Bali Deli should you wish to make light meals or food for drinks. If you don't want ants don't leave out food - simple!
We found the Villas to be comfortable and the staff very helpful in attending to any problems (such as replacing sun lounge where cover has started to tear). They attend to the room twice a day. Clean villa during the day at convenient times then turn down beds, set lighting, clean dishes & remove rubbish around 6pm - great service.
Breakfast is provided in rooms at allocated time from Indonesian, American or continental. Take your own vegemite if you can't live without it!
The best asset for Downtown is the location in the heart of Seminyak 50m down the small road but is very quiet. Yes, there are some small potholes in the road that fill when it rains but Bali footpaths & roads are not in A1 condition and this is no different.
Downtown is close to supermarket, shops and great restaurants. A short $2 taxi ride (use Bluebird as they turn the meter on) to Legian / Kuta or up to Eat Street for many of Bali's best restaurants.
Has a room for a gym if you are so inclined but didn't go near that so can't offer any adivce on equipment but has bike, treadmill & weights.
Enjoyed a late check out which is normally to 6pm (additional cost at 50% or room rate) but were able to stay until we were taken to airport at 9pm.

Room Tip: My tip - if you walk further down the road away from the main street you'll find a lovely small...

Stayed for 3 nights. The 1 bed villa OK size wise for 2 people with small deck and plunge pool. Agree with previous review that it has not aged well and some minor repairs are needed. We didn't use the complimentary one way air port pick up as we travelled to Seminyak from Ubud. When we inquired about transport to the airport we were advised it would be US$25. A cab from JL Seminyak in front of Bintang Supermarket to the airport was Rp50,000 (about $5). The location is excellent and the staff friendly.

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Bali where we spent the first 5 nights of our 10 day break at Downtown Villas. Overall we had a great time and thought the accommodation in our two bedroom villa for 5 of us was fantastic. Beds very comfortable (pillows way too soft so if you want firmer ones buy them from Bintang supermarket across the road) the kids loved the 20metre swimming pool and the location was very private and quiet. A few things required maintenance such as loose decking, hot water tap dripping in kitchen and tiny ants in kitchen and if you want a place with a gym that is functional - this is not the place for you but overall, very clean and modern and Yes we would definately stay here again. Be careful of the laundry we sent a t shirt off to be cleaned and it came back with more stains on it than it had when it went. Its not really walkable to the beach but only a $2 fare in a taxi and you are there. It is however in the heart of seminyak shopping district and that was great.

Room Tip: All two bedroom villas are spacious.

My husband and I stayed in the 1 bedroom villa (villa number 1), which I believe is the largest out of all the 1 bedroom villas on the premises. We had our own private pool and decking as well as our own deck chairs and outdoor setting.

The villa itself was a little outdated, however clean and very private. The service was outstanding and the staff were very friendly. There was no incidents with any personal belongings going missing at all. There were many times my husband and I left personal items outside the safe and they were not even touched by staff.

The breakfast system at the Downtown villas is the BEST system I have ever come across. Breakfast selection cards are left in your room from the night before and you fill out what you want to eat and at what time and they bring it to your room and set it up for you. Truly great service with a smile...

The location is perfectly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of busy Seminyak, but a stones throw away from boutique shopping and great food.

We will be back to Bali and would stay here again!!!

A bit of a debacle really! There would be numerous other villas which are more luxurious compared to this one! The plunge pool is definitely a bath tub! The gym is not upto scratch! And there is more insects and geckos getting about than leaves!
