“Small Budget Hotel, not Short on Value For Money”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

I stayed here with my adult daughter. She wanted to be close to the beach so she could go for a jog in the mornings. Although we had to share a huge king bed. we had plenty of space. Our room was huge with a huge bathroom, small fridge, TV with HBO, and free bottled water each day, and both aircon or overhead ceiling fan. The location was amazing. Real close to Legian/Kuta Beach (about 100m), and located in what was known as Double 6 road (tell your taxi driver this from the airport with a ride only about AUS$5!), the Sari Bunga is miles cheaper than other hotels in the area. Friendly staff make you feel at home, the pool area is relaxing, and provided breakfast is more than enough to start the day with both Indonesian and Western choices.
This hotel seemed popular with families as there were several family groups when I was here.
I would certainly choose to stay here again because for price, location and friendliness, it would be hard to beat if you are looking for a clean budget hotel, centrally located in the tourist strip, with heaps of shopping possibilites and other eateries close by.
DOWNSIDE: the only available place to use the free wifi was in the restaurant area. Staff didn't hassle for guests to buy anything so that part of it was fine. Just would be good to have room access.
BTW my ratings are based on what you get for your money

Room Tip: Our room was on second floor near the restaurant, in a separate building. Close to pool, restaurant...

I stayed here for 9 nights with friend. We hadn't book, we just walked in the day before we intended to stay. We actually spent two nights at the hugely over priced Legian Beach Hotel before moving to Sari Bunga and funnily enough, we enjoyed staying at this cheaper hotel far more.

It is located on Double Six (or jl Arguna), about 200m from the beach, just far enough that we couldn’t hear the music coming from the beach front bars and "clubs". There was a fair bit of construction noise while we were there as the road and footpath of Double Six was being redone during our stay but even that couldn't be heard from our room.

The hotel itself is great, with not too many rooms so it feels a lot more cosy and comfortable than the massive resorts. The "deluxe" rooms (cheapest room available) are pretty large with a generous bathroom. The only issues we had were that there was very minimal lighting in the room itself and there was very little ventilation in bathroom so it tended to get pretty hot and uncomfortable in there when showering etc. but otherwise it was everything we needed. And although we didn’t stay in one, the family rooms look like a really good option if travelling with more people, as they sleep 5 and have their own common/lounge area and balcony.

The grounds were lovely and the pool is quite nice, though it doesn't get a lot of sun in the afternoon. There is also the pool in the connecting hotel which is available to people staying at Sari Bunga however, I would avoid it as it’s dirty, and seems to be missing about a foot of water. The restaurant is good and very reasonably priced. Definitely try the Indonesian noodles for breakfast (which is included) and the Sari Bunga burger. I'm not big on eating western food when in Asia, but honestly, this is one of the best burgers I've had.

The people working at Sari Bunga were really lovely and went out of their way to make sure we were happy. It’s probably the best valued accommodation in the area and I can’t wait to go back!

Room Tip: The balconies are open, and people will walk past on their way to there own room, so try to get the...

After many stays around the Legian area at places like Kumala Pantai ....... I was recommended this hotel by fellow frequent visitors. At AUD$42 per night I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this little establishment. Sure, its been there a while and in area's can look a little 'worn' .......... but the overall service, cleanliness and convenience of this hotel makes it an excellent value for money play to stay. The rooms are quite large, the hot water & air-con all more than adequate. Food in the restaurant is fine and reasonably priced and the WIFI works as it should....and a short 200m stroll puts you on the sand.
The staff are wonderful (Thanks Sri) and really nothing is too much trouble! Would I stay there again? YES - matter of fact I am back there in 2 weeks time.

Room Tip: If your not a 'climb the stair' person avoid the top floor. Some rooms can get a little nois...

My friend and i intended only staying here for a couple of nights but ended up staying for 8 of our 12 days on holiday in bali in september. The location was perfect with bars and cafes within minutes walking distance and probably a ten minute walk to the main shops and restaurants, supermarkets, and banks. The beach was a five minute walk so made it really convenient.
Staff were really friendly and helpful. The restaurant food was good and cheap so i ate a few meals here rather than having to go out to other places to eat.
We had a standard room which had all we needed and was always cleaned on a daily basis. For $25 nz each a night we got good value for our money which is why we stayed here for the duration of our holiday.
There is free wifi here but only in the restaurant so if it could have been accessed from the rooms it would have been perfect, otherwise really happy to have found this place. Will definately consider staying here next year.

Stayed here for 2 nights in August. If you are after good clean accomodation at a budget price but in a good location then this hotel is ideal.
Rooms are clean altho slightly dated but certainly fine for the price you pay. The staff are fantastically helpful and friendly. As a surfer the location was ideal with only a 150m walk out the door to end of the road to the beach. Plenty of shops and restaurants right out the door. Brekkie is basic but thats all you need in the heat. Nice big clean pool with sufficient no of chairs. Can rent a bike from reception or over the road. Going rate for the day is Rp 50,000. Big hotels being built all around but this is the norm for Bali at the moment.Family rooms are bigger. Not a huge amount of English speaking tv channels but who needs them really. One of my favourite restaurants in Legian is a 2min walk around the corner - Asia Warung. If you want a budget but clean and friendly hotel that is not too big but close to the beach then this is ideal.

Room Tip: Family rooms are bigger and mostly on ground floor close to pool

The pool is clean and plenty of chairs.Staff are very friendly. we were there during ramadon so there were a lot of local familys staying there and the kids were up early swimming in the pool so that made it a bit noisy but they were on holidays too and enjoying them selfs.the room also had sealing fan as well as air con which we thought was great as we didnt need the air con at night just the fan.

Stayed here in Aug for three nights with a group of friends. The price was so cheap for what get. The room, although basic had everything we needed, king sized bed, bathroom with separate bath and shower, aircon, fan, TV (didnt watch though) fridge (bottles of water on top were complimentry and replenished everyday) Everthing in the room worked and was very clean. The location is close to Seminyak and Legion beaches and within walking distance to many many bars, restaurants and shopping.
Now I am more of a five star traveller so for me to be writting a review this good for a 3ish star resort is saying something. If you want cheap no frills, just a place to crash thats safe and cheap then the Sari Bunga is for you!!

Room Tip: hire a scooter if you want to have a good look around.
