Frayed around the edges but nice enough
The booking showed a massive discount, which raised our expectations somewhat. When we got there, we found that the place was worth about what we had payed *after the discount*!
Ordering food late was an interesting experience as they seemed to have very little that was on the menu, so we had to have fries. They were quite good, though.
All in all: Meh.
Hotel Feature Tip:
Get in the pool. It's a good pool.

A simple , cheap staying solution in bali
affordable price, great service
The place was very good if you're only want a simple bed and breakfast. It was near a lot of restaurants and some mini markets. You can easily rent a scooter for 5-10 dollars per day and go around bali!

Adequate Roomings with really helpful staff
Clean, relaxed atmosphere
The receptionist who checked us in, Meymey, was immensely helpful with our rooms and throughout our stay.
Location is good in that it's within a 5-minute walking distance to the Nusa Dua beach.
Some rooms' toilet doors have no locks, the toilet is outdoors and is kind of transparent, that's why we made a request to switch rooms.
The room we switched to had indoor toileting but no ventilation apparently.
Nevertheless, the bed was big and room clean enough.
Breakfast was complimentary but be aware that portions are small-mid sized (ala carte menu).
Didn't see anyone using the swimming pool for my entire stay there.
And, lots of mosquitoes around, nevertheless, it's a quiet, rustic sort of place and it's well-run by it's small team of staff.
Bambu Bali (featured in guidebooks) is a 2-minute walk away.

Small Hotel with friendly staff
we were given a warm welcome on arrival, staff very friendly and helpful.good hotel for people on a budget. rooms however need to be updated and bathrooms are a bit run down. pool small but nice.breakfast basic but still okay. short walk to beach with watersports and activities.

Spacious room, nice outdoor bathroom
loved the bathroom: like a little rock garden, no roof
we arrived late, around midnight to 1am but luckily there was still staff to bring us to our room. the person at the reception seemed a little confused at first when I told him I booked on agoda, but in the end everything was alright.
* nice open bathroom
* bed cover had dirt on it
* smaller animals (lizards, frogs) can get in easily

Cozy hotel, friendly staff, but poor restaurant.
Friendly staff, value for money in this part of the island.
This is a very small hotel, and a rare gem in this part of the island, if you are looking for value for money. The staffs are friendly and helpful. The lock for the room's door is a little unconventional, but it's safe.
The pool is a good spot to cool down with a dip, while enjoying a cold beer and get to know your neighbors.
The beach is just 5-10 minutes across the road, with no lack of beach activities as you stroll towards the north.
Convenience store is just next door, and cheap local eat is available at night in front of the convenience store.
Do ask the hotel staff for prices to expect before buying local food as there won't be menus with standard prices.
If you travel alone, and pay the full price for a room for 2, remember to ask for 2 sets of breakfast, unless you like to keep your stomach half full.
For other meals of the day, you get better value, service, atmosphere and authenticity elsewhere.
Bumbu Bali is less than 50 metres away, and it serves authentic and delicious Balinese cuisine.
For cheap eat, try the warung (roadside stall patronized by locals) in front of the convenience stall at night. It serves delicious chicken and mutton satay, Ketupat, steamed rice, porridge and mutton soup.
Do ask the hotel staff for prices to expect, as these warungs do not have menus with standard prices.

Affordable accomodation with small room
It is a good time for me to visit Nusa Dua area and stay in this hotel.
Even though it is not in Nusa Dua area, but in Benoa instead, this hotel is very closed to Nusa Dua area.
The greetings from reception made me feel at home (hommie).
The room itself is very small, about only 8.5 sqm but the room I stayed offers large bathub even can fit three people inside.
I suppose to stay at Anggrek room, but transferred to Mangga room for unknown reason (I didn't ask). For me as a biz traveller and alone, it was Ok.
They have a small pool that I can swim in, not so clean, but natural. It might refresh my body in the mid of sunny day.
In short, this hotel is recommended for traveller who doesn't stay anytime in the hotel and even the price is quite ok for backpacker.
The hotel has cooperation with a restaurant named Dewi Sri, even they are in same complex, but they only cooperate in breakfast.
If you plan to have a lunch or dinner, the restaurant avoid to do charge to room and ask you to pay it separately.

Stayed in this hotel for a couple of times already. Everything is as pleasing as it was before. Staff was kind and always smiling to the guests.

great place for relaxation
peaceful ambiance, village like decor
It was far from the main night life areas of Bali. we arrived late and hotel looked empty. initially we were skeptical about the location, but soon started liking it. breakfast was poor and quantity of food was very little. commuting was not a problem.
