Built to high standards worn over time. Smelled of mildew when we arrived. Air conditioning helped somewhat. Unique architectural design, but maintenance was obviously not kept up to date. Interior water damage evident everywhere. The water cooler did not cool, dishes had been put away dirty & had mold on them, microwave also had mold growing. We cleaned these ourselves. Blood stained sheets on master bed. Staff turned off the air conditioning whenever they entered - we were constantly fighting to keep it cool. The master vents below the windows do not close, meaning it is impossible to cool the room without having blackout drapes fully closed.
Power went off twice, internet was sporadic at best.
Breakfast was boiled eggs, 1 piece of toast, corn flakes in a bowl. Twice eggs were served warm but not cooked. The other breakfast option was processed cheese sandwiches.
Lots of decent dining options nearby, however lots of bars mean loud techno and base filled dance music starts at noon until after midnight. Bring ear plugs.
Sullen taxi drivers on property. You can not ever leave the building without staff asking "where are you going"? Trying to lure you into overpriced rides (200,000rp to go to Kuta when Uber or Bluebird is 45,000). However Uber drivers will not pick you up there for seriously fear of physical assault from the "taxi mafia".
Laundry prices by the piece v expensive go to Kuta for the day pay by kilo.
I would not come here again if you paid me.
