“Colourful shoebox”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

Decent value, a bit of a walk down a dark alley from the main drag... rooms were a bit of a squeeze, and the toilet 'pod' felt like an airline restroom. Still, at about $35 it's not the worst value for a room with wifi and an okay Indonesian breakfast (nasi goreng or mie goreng wrapped in banana leaves), and the pool area is nice. The hotel staff cold be a lot more helpful though- unfortunately no one was willing to give us advice beyond getting us to book their own taxis and tours.

Pop is basic and clean, if that's what you are after for a short stay in the Kuta area then you really can't go wrong. The only thing I think they could add is a bar fridge in the room. Because of the heat you really do feel like a cool drink more often. We headed down stairs at about 8am to see if we could get one from the pool bar, but they were closed, bit to far to walk anywhere just to grab a cool drink.

On that note it is a bit of a walk to get to the beach or Legian Street, didn’t bother us, but might bother others.

The pool was excellent and well utilised by us while we were there.

The breakfast was great, was a great example of basic Balinese food, just the right amount for breakfast and very tasty. My husband went down stairs and collected breakfast and coffee’s every morning and we ate in our room in the cool. As the foyer/ dinning room area is not air-conditioned.

The room service was not great, we had a couple of empty drink bottles sitting in our room for the whole time we were there, and one morning we forgot to take our breakfast dishes down stairs, they were still there in the evening. We ended up taking them out and giving them to one of the staff we found in the corridor

Would we stay again? Yes if I was just staying for a night or two.

not bad - missed breakfast and went down the road - was $2 each so cant complain - smallish rooms great colours and design - shower weird space capsule type thing - enclosed door - toilet gets wet everytime u shower because of the small space - no bar fridge - (thought i could go without ) but it really does come in handy as its so humid - elevators are really small - my daughter had a hard time in their as she is claustrophobic - so mainly took the stairs, coming back at night is a little freaky as ur surrounded by huge walls with glass cut on top and have to go down a couple of alley ways to get to hotel - dont listen to cab drivers they will try n charge u more as the road has ditches in it and they think they r 4wding . nice vans at the hotel charge 100,000 irp for trip to air port. good budget hotel

Just came back from a 6d5n trip to Bali yesterday.
Had all 5 nights in POP! Hotel Kuta Beach.

I wasn't so sure about the quality of service of the hotel as it is still new when I booked a room for myself online.
I have called the hotel twice for enquiries and the staffs speak fluent English.

The night that I checked-in, it was already midnight.
They have a 24-hours front desk service which makes the check-in process hassle free.
Note that I booked my room 2 months prior to my trip there and paid in full beforehand.

Went into the room and found myself in a lovely place.
Their creative and innovative shower pods are definitely given bonus marks.

They have LCD TVs in every room in which some 50+ channels are provided!
Documentary channels, sports channels, movie channels, news channels, cartoon channels, you name it!
It's definitely family, couple or even solo travellers friendly.

For a budget hotel, they even have a swimming pool for guests to have a dip in.
Complimentary breakfast and bottled water are also available .

In my personal opinion, they deserve something like a 2 or 3 stars hotel instead of a budget hotel title.
If you are looking for something simple instead of a luxurious stay, look no further!

The staff are very very helpful.
I was in need of help communicating with the local people there and Evie, the manager's wife was there to help me. She is the person who gives training to hotel staffs.
She helped me out by texting and calling the local people whom I intended to find and she was very very very helpful and kind throughout the process.
Same goes to the supervisor of the hotel. He is a man with a great smile all the time.
The staffs are lovely as well.

POP! Hotel Kuta is the best you can find around the area.
Top in class service, all the staffs are friendly. Rooms are cleaned everyday.
Complimentary bottled water. Free breakfast. Free amenities.
Away from the car noises at the main road and at the same time it is at a walking distance from Kuta Beach and Legian.

It's all 10/10 for them! Great great hotel!

I've spent about 2 night here... very nice room for traveler, doesn't need lot room amenities...

the only downside is the road to this hotel little bit small, but we are backpacker that can ride motorcycle. Motorcycle rent can find in the front of hotel...

Because no carpet in the corridor that can reduce sounds, so sometimes when we sleep sometimes we can hear people walking, carry their luggage or people angry with her/his spouse. haha...

No fitness center... no big deal, we can jogging to the beach that not far away from the hotel. Swimming pool is more than enough for backpacker....

If not for the misadventure in Kuta my time spent there would have quality time, as a first time solo traveller into the area was like a lamb almost the wolfs.

However the accommodation, that I book through hostel bookers at Pop Hotel in Kuta beach I was pleasantly surprised with the quality.

Hotels are not my thing generally, as I like a more community orientated environment such as hostels, but for the three days I came here I had quality sleep every day, the room was cleaned daily, the facility in entirety was clean, the room had air conditioning which a nice comfort.

The shower pod / toilet I had no problem with.

The swimming pool was lovely feature, which was very serviceable, though only once trying the pool.

The morning breakfast bite was an awesome start for the day.

Overall my experience was positive, and would highly recommend it for any one coming to Kuta just off the main strip down a small winding lane, though it may be a little hard to find at first but a great location.

As I am from Australian this is very similar to Ibis Budget Hotels (Formally, Formula One Hotel), if you are look for quality hotel at reasonable price, and as previously stated this would a very highly recommend place for your adventure around Kuta.

I stayed for 2 nights and I had a wonderful time in this hotel.
The room is small but good enough for 2 person, the service was great, the staff are friendly.
They have simple and good swimming pool, aso have free internet in lobby and free wifi in the room.
The design of the bathroom is very genius, small but enough space, and the shower also have a good pressure.
They provide Jinggo rice for breakfast, easy and simple.
This is the best budget hotel I've ever visited so far, and this is the firest time I give 5 star rating for hotel in trip advisor, so I think Im very satisfied of this hotel.
Keep up the good work.
