Nice hotel with good service
Hotel is quiet and room is clean.
I stayed here because it's closed to my friend's wedding venue. The room is nice and clean. Food is delicious with reasonable price but breakfast is just ok.

Old but Spacious
Spacious Rooms. Excellent serivce & very quiet
If you want a quiet, economical and fuss free hotel right next to the ocean, then this is a great place in Seminyak, Bali. It is one of those older hotels that could become crappy, but their excellent service really saves this hotel. It is for someone or couple that wants to have a peaceful relaxing holiday while just being able to hear the ocean waves. The shopping district is only about 10 mins taxi ride. I would stay here for the end of my trip as a place to let my body have "down time". Food in the restaurant was okay,economical.

Wonderful hotel on the beach
Elegant and friendly
Excellent service, clean rooms, good food. The bathrooms are large and elegant. Rooms have a lovely balcony overlooking manicured gardens with several water features. The hotel is located on the beach close to other major hotels (W and Potato Head virtually next door) and is close to good shopping, unlimited massages, quiet beaches with good surf (and lifesavers directly in front of hotel). Customer service is outstanding. The property is older, but has character and style that modern complexes do not offer. Altogether a great hotel.

Nice hotel graet staff
Spa and swimming pool
This hotel is 20mins into Kuta and 10 from Seminyak by motorbike. I recommend you hire from the hotel - not expensive. THe spa here is good and the food in the restaurant is nice and lots of it.

A quiet comfortabel place with all services
Good courtesy van service.
This was our first time in Indonesia and Bali was our last stop. The Gran Balisani is a clean and comfortable place with nice grounds. Adequate food. Attentive restaurant service. Smallish but adequate pool and easy direct beach access though the beach is not that attractive per se. There were plenty of comfortable places to sun yourself on the grounds. One night there was a nice Balinese dance performance gratis with dinner; another night they had a good vocalist for entertainment. The front desk was helpful, pleasant and courteous. They facilitate a wide variety tours and we took one and were very satisfied... an island tour with about 6 or 8 stops and we modified it by agreement with the guide. It was all very easy and pleasant: temples, botanic gardens rice patties...but the butterfly sanctuary was an unexpected highlight. Reasonable price. The only drawback for us was that it was a bit isolated with no stores or shops to browse. However, the sedclusion was an assset and they had regularly scheduled courtesy vans to keys places for free so that took the edge off isolation, Return by taxi is very inexpensive. We have no problems recommending the Gand Balisani.

Good hotel and location
Right on the beach
the hotel is allegedly 20 years old and it looks run down from outside, but the rooms are in excellent condition. the hotel is located at the north end of seminyak beach and it is a bit off the main path. however, it is within (beach) walking distance from kuta and dozens of bars and restaurants on the beach. given its location and price range, the hotel attracts older guests and families. so, if you are young and interested in partying in bali, this may not be the place for you. however, if you want the option to party, but want access to an empty beach at a place otherwise crowded with tourists, this may be the place for you...

Under Renovation, banging starts @ 8am (Sun incld)
Friendly Staff, great location
Positive: Friendly staff, beautiful sunsets, cheap happy hr cocktails by the pool, free shuttle to Kuta, Legian & Seminyak and the breakfast bacon is awesome (must request) Negative: First room was dirty n old. Second room aircon was coughing & spitting ice. Due to renovations, the constant banging started @ 8am every day, including Sun. Overall: Day 2 my room was spotless (after a few complaints) and the Aircon was fixed. By Day 4 we ready to go home, I left the GBS hotel contented. The rate was very economical, but not sure if I will return, maybe after they complete their renovations.
