We stayed in the Ossotel for six nights during our trip to Bali. We chose the hotel based on the reviews here and were not disappointed.
The hotel is new and the rooms clean with a comfy bed. The staff was really nice, friendly and helpful. A really nice touch was the daily hotel newsletter with the weather (and surf) forecast for the next day and the afternoon snack that came with it.
The pool is nice and long enough to actually swim in it - if you have a pool room be prepared to people looking into your rooms while they swim (we first contemplated to get one of these rooms and then were happy for taking one on the upper floors).
The breakfast buffet had daily changing dishes, with a constant of fried noodles and rice. You can get egg dishes made to order, but after trying that the first two mornings and having to wait for too long we gave up on that for the rest of the stay. The staff is maybe a bit too attentive, moving your plate away as soon as you put down your cutlery, even when the other person is still eating.
The location in Legian is great, lots of shops and bars/restaurants around - just a couple minutes up the beach there are some great beach bars with live music at night. There are two small 24/7 shops right next to the hotel that sell everything you need - from beer to aspirin.
The hotel has it's own part of the beach with loungers and umbrellas free of charge for guests - even though we were told it was a first come first serve, we never had a problem of getting loungers there. There's lots of bars around so you'll always have a nice cold Bintang while enjoying the beach.
The only real downside is the construction work next to the hotel. During our stay they were taking down a building next door and started to work with a digger at 6 AM one morning. As they were far from finishing and will probably start to build something new there, this will probably be an issue for the next 6 - 12 months.
Besides that we really enjoyed our stay and can only recommend the Ossotel.
