“Horrible room - Booked on Agoda website (not accurate)”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

The photos posted on the Agoda website DO NOT reflect the style of rooms at all. The options for this hotel is a standard room with fan, standard room with air conditioning and deluxe room with air conditioning. The photos shown on the website only reflect the deluxe rooms, although even the standard rooms have the same photo.

In addition, there is no hot water in any of the standard rooms, even though the Agoda website mentions hot/cold water for the standard room. This is INCORRECT. Only the deluxe rooms have hot water. Standard with fan and a/c have no hot water.

Agoda also mentions that ALL rooms have bathtub, desk and television, balcony/terrace. The standard rooms with fan and a/c have no bathtub, no desk, no television and no balcony or terrace. These rooms do not even have a sink.

Whilst listed as a basic room, the bathroom was tiny with only a handheld shower over the toilet. There was no sperate toiltet. Every time you showered, the toilet and bathroom got completely wet.

We thought we had booked a simple clean double room with private bathroom and fan, however when we got there, we saw an old, run down room with no tv, no desk, no bathtub, no hot water, no balcony/terrace and two twin beds.

The hotel told us that when we made our booking, we did not specify that we wanted one bed. Although, Agoda website clearly shows a double bed in the photo when you book a standard room.

I would never book this hotel again, unless I can book the deluxe room on a website that shows deluxe clearly. Anything else and you will end up in a standard room with a/c which is equally as old.

I believe that if you book a superior room as listed on Agoda, you are actually booking a standard room with a/c which is just as bad as a standard room with fan.

The only plus about this hotel is its location, near to everything but off the main strip so quieter.

People were okay. Hotel is run down but at least the pool was clean, although the sun lounges and table were pretty much all broken or stained.

I would only book this hotel if I was staying for under 5 days and only in a deluxe room.

Room Tip: Only book a deluxe room in this hotel and nothing more than US$30 as when we spoke to others staying...

I stayed here in September for 7 nights...I had a room in the old part which was very spacious and a fabulous price Room 201..$37.50 AU per night..The food is very cheap and quite nice.cheaper than out on the street so is the Bintang....Breakfast is free and leaves alot to be desired but you can order what you like at a very small price difference....The staff are friendly expecially the young trainees....Pool area is small but great service and they will play your CD's for you ..Please don't hurt yourself ..like I did ...The tap fell off giving me a huge bruise but they were only worried about fixing it than saying ..."are you alright"....If your looking for central and don't want to pay too much then this one I recommend...I go back in several weeks but staying elswhere...OK but once was enough....

I booked this room and they put me in the old part of the hotel. As per previous email nice before i paid and rude after, the owners son that is.
Do not book any room there are hundreds of hotels in bali with occupancies low because of world policital climate, find one on legian opposite side of bintang supermarket.
Towel was dirty, no hot water, bed linen not changed for weeks, shower head like one you use in toilet about 4 foot high, ac not working, and bathroom very smelly.
If you pay more than 10 dollars for this place you are crazy.
On a positive note breakfast was good.

Cool place, but unless one of your plans in staying here includes being robbed, I wouldn't recommend it. Left my purse locked in my room today and came back to find money missing. I complained to the front desk but they tried to brush it off. The room was locked, the only people who could get in was staff. There are plenty of other places to stay in this area, so stay somewhere else and be cautious of your stuff!

We have stayed here many times and always enjoyed our stay , the rooms are well equiped with fridge , tv / dvd , ac and hotwater . The prices for mini bar and all restaurant meals and drinks is exceptional value . The pool always looks clean and the staff and Dewi the manager are always very helpfull . if your a budget traveller this is a good option as its clean, cheap and in a good location , close to everthing kuta has to offer .

Over all our stay was fine, room was big and clean as was bathroom. Pool was nice and the food was good.

Only negatives was the free breakfast wasn't that great and the Internet went down and they had no intention of fixing it.

The junior staff were lovely, friendly and helpful. The senior staff seemed to care less. Be careful as our friend was told her room rate went up after her first night so she had to leave as could not afford it!

Location is ok but on booking.com it has Map location as incorrect which is why we booked it as we thought it was central kuta when it is actually 2.5km from kuta.
