Stay here and you won't be disappointed. Far more modern and friendly than most of the surrounding hotels/resorts and excellent value for money! It is a 4 star hotel with 5 star staff and 5 star attitude.
We stayed here for 4 weeks over June/July and ALL the staff were fantastic (from reception, housekeeping, the restaurant and the management).
The location is great-probably the nicest stretch of Legian beach is directly ahead of the hotel (once you walk 2mins through the walkway) and there is a good range of restaurants close by.
The rooms are as good as everyone on TripAdvisor has said; modern, big enough, good amenities, very comfortable bed and pillows and the pool access rooms are worth the extra $20-30/night.
The pool is cold and it did mean that we spent less time at the pool and more time at the beach but because we were there for 4 weeks, we did notice that the sun was changing in the sky and the deck started to get more and more sun so hopefully by September/October part of the pool will be sunny! And I guess it is 30+ degrees in Bali so a dip in a cold pool is not really that disastrous.
The restaurant is very good. The breakfast can be a bit hit and miss in terms of runny vs rock hard eggs and can be fairly cool once it gets to the table. The omelette and breakfast burrito were very good (consistently). At dinner the menu expands and the food is more consistent and very good-better than most of the surrounding restaurants in Legian.
The restaurant morphs in to a more bar atmosphere on some nights after about 8:30pm and the music (often very good live bands but sometimes a bit nightclub and loud) can pump to past 1am! It will definitely affect light sleepers and those who stay in the rooms closest to the restaurant will be able to hear/feel the bass until closing time. Most affected are room numbers 101-106 (pool access ground floor) and 201-206/301-306 for the 2nd and 3rd floors. I would ask for a room about half way down (we were in room 109).
The staff, as I mentioned earlier, are great! A special mention to Dekni, Endra, Chef Banjar, Ari, Devi, Desi and Hendra-very professional staff with excellent hospitality skills and just fun to chat to when you visit. The reception staff including Ani and Arini were lovely-nothing was too much trouble. The management including Wayan (General manager) and Ngurah and Arnold were great too.
Comparing Ossotel to other hotels near by it stands up very well and is the best 4 star Bali we have stayed in throughout South East Asia!
To all the staff, thank you so much for looking after us so beautifully. Keep up the great work and we'll see you again!
