“A lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 15 April 2011

I booked this guesthouse online based on reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. I was a little worried as my taxi approached the guesthouse, as it is located in a rather dirty, dodgy looking backstreet, but once I was through the gates I was comforted to find myself in pleasant surroundings. I had booked a standard room but was upgraded free of charge to a larger superior room as the standard rooms had been overbooked.

My room was spacious and modern, and my first reaction was 'wow'. For approx IDR 320,000 I had a small lounge area, queen size bed with crisp white sheets, good size wardrobe with a bathrobe and a safe inside, 2 aircons, TV with some English channels, fridge, free bottled water, mini bar and even a plug-in mosquito repellent. The bathroom had a combined toilet/shower area and a separate vanity area with basin, mirror and hotel style shower cap, toothbrush etc.

The staff were friendly and spoke good Engish. They were happy to call taxis for me (approx 7-8 mins from Legian beach and shops etc, about IDR 15-20,000) and one of the porters even gave me a ride on the back of his moped to a nearby supermarket. Another staff member arranged relatively cheap transport to Lombok on one of the fast boats (much cheaper than the online advertised price, although I later found out that because it was low season I could have gotten it even cheaper if I'd had the time or energy to look around).

Breakfast was brought to my room, and I chose the American which included a small omelette, rasher of bacon, lightly toasted bread, jam, fruit, coffee/tea and juice. I could eat either in my air-conditioned room or at the little table outside in the shared courtyard.

There is no pool, and you will need a taxi to get anywhere, there are no shops, restaurants or beaches within walking distance but the taxi ride is very cheap.

Excellent place for good n cheap pricing with a nice field gacing it..Recommended for those who wishes to chill peacefully as it is a bit far off from Pantai Kuta..Better hire motorcycles for fun experience but good place with nice service for my first time here..rent a bike!!

Legion Guest House is a small bed and breakfast in Legion. I found this wonderful B&B after leaving a horrible hostel in Sanur.

The service was great! The staff was very friendly and spoke fluent English. I arrived at Legion Guest House early in the morning, way before check-in and before our room was ready. The staff was very accommodating and let us check-in to our room. Our room was spotless and very big. We had a large, comfortable bed, and two couches with a coffee table. The room included all the amenities that anyone would need: toiletries, umbrella, bug spray, bug lotion, and flash light. Outside of the room is a sitting area where you can relax or eat your breakfast while watching the sun rise. There are also two relaxing water fountains that give the guesthouse a relaxing atmosphere. The whole staff, including the security guard, tried their best to make all the guests comfortable. During my stay there were few blackouts but the power quickly went back on.

The breakfast that is included was delicious. The choices are American breakfast: Eggs, bacon or sausage, toast, fruit, juice and coffee or tea or Balinese breakfast: Fried rice or fried noodles, fruit, juice, and coffee or tea. I also ordered room service and the food tasted great with really good prices.

The location of the guesthouse is 15-20 minutes walking distance from the bustling beach of Legion. It is located next to a rice field in a residential area. This guest house is great if you really want to get away from all the loud noise, smells, and crowds of Bali.

There are only a few rooms which help the staff focus on you, the guest.

We love the room. Room amenities were good; bathrobes, safe, coffee and tea making facilities, Satellite TV, Minibar, vanity table, ,etc.

However, there can be some improvements;

1. Service
Service staff can be better trained.
Forget to replace towels...left one instead of two. Also forget glasses.
Perhaps, using a checklist will be better so they do not forget. However, they were always there when you call for them.Just work process needs fine tuning.
Guest Names put upfront on board. For security purpose, no one should know who is in the room?????Hello????

2. Aircon

Aircon was weak. We told them to fix it and they did. Still not as cold compared to properties we had stayed in.

3. Small compound

Outside room can be claustrophopic cos 8 units enclosed facing one another. Even though there are two chairs for outdoor sitting...you just look into the opposite room.;(
Unlike that of a balcony in some hotels we had stayed.

4. More space in room

More shelves near sink so we can put our bathroom amenities, kettle for hotwater( need socket and socket at sink area.

Other than the above, the place is good for one try. Surrounding areas not condusive.

The room, the bed, the bathroom were spotless clean, I could sleep very well, and could have a great rest - just what I needed after a long-long trip. The staff are very friendly, and went out of their way every time I asked for something. Extremely nice people! It was also great to have the breakfast served in the room - or outside on the porch. They helped with everything I asked them.
The only drawback is the location, but it was not a drawback for me! I specifically wanted a tranquil place to rest, and tranquility and relaxation I got! It's a bit away from the beach, but then again, if you rent a scooter for about 6 USD a day, you can just hop over.
If you're in for wild parties, look a bit closer to the beach in Kuta, but if you are searching for a nice place to rest, look no further! I would most definitely come back!
