Old fashioned hotel with a breathtaking view

The location - the view from the pool - the staff
An old fashioned hotel which would have been stunning when it first opened 27 years ago. Needs a bit of TLC but is fine if you don't expect 5* luxury. The pool area and where you have breakfast has probably the bet views you will get anywhere,across the Lombok straight to Nusa Penida. There are some superb restaurants a short walk from the hotel also. It really is a peaceful paradise, as long as you go with an open mind and accept it for what it is, a 3 star old Balinese hotel.

Nice place to stay

Location, cleanliness and price
Very good place to stay, but be careful with the extra services prices that the staff will recommend.

Dirty rooms

nice swimming pool
We stay in the two superior rooms that are very dirty and uncomfortable. This hotel is very old and there are many areas under maintenance and construction. The pool is very nice that you can see the ocean. Also, breakfast is very simple.

convenient location

location, nice pool, friendly staff
The location is very convenient for the temple that we wish to visit. We check in early but there is no problem with that as the hotel is very quiet. The staffs are very friendly and eager to assist in any way. The room is large but i will say that it is old and running down. Most rooms are not occupied for ages, the handle is rusted. We thought the tv is not working but it's only a problem of the plug. Nothing great about it as its only have local channels. There is an empty minibar but no telephone, no room service, no water heater. We spent more time in veranda when we're in the room. The hot water is great though. Breakfast is limited but tasty. The pool is an extra plus with a green, tidy garden. Restaurants and shopping areas are walking distance. It is not so bad if you just stay for a few days and spend most of your time sightseeing, and use the room as just a place to rest your head.

Excellent! The staff are very helpful.

Staff, location, view
I will go back again. The hotel is a bit old, but the views and service make it worth while.

Nice location but the whole hotel seemed dated

Close to the sea but no beach to go on :( No best 3 thing I'm afraid
Comfortable with friendly staff however for this price there are much nicer and cleaner hotels nearby to stay in. The whole place was run down and desperately needed some paint and DIY. I put skiing as the recommended candidates for this hotel as you must fill in that field however I recommend this hotel to no one i'm afraid.

Terrible, run down!

Nothing, dirty, bad service.
I booked this months before my stay in Bali, online it looks good.... Unfortunately this place is so run down/dirty there is no way I could recommend it. It looks like its closing down! We booked double rooms & got single beds. They told us they were full but I'm sure there were probably only about 20 people max staying here. Thank goodness this was only a 1 night stay before heading to Lombok.

disappointed with the rishi

the balcony, the pool,staff friendly
the photos of the rishi on the internet looked lovely so we were grossly mislead as to the condition of the hotel. in its day i'm sure it was lovely but well overdue for renovations. staff friendly but language was difficult at times.
