Great all rounder”
Older authentic style property, loved the charm. Staff were lovely, good facilities, a cot was set up on arrival so that was great, hotel taxi costs very cheap, food was good, great location, very happy to come back
Second time staying here, good hotel with good location, next to the Mall, across from Kuta beach & near other shopping & restaurants. The hotel staff are great, very friendly, the hotel has a very nice pool & area. Nice buffet breakfast with egg station. The rooms are older, some have been re-painted & have all you need, AC, TV, fridge, kettle (coffee/tea) & more. If in the area, would stay again.
A little complain ”
We get the quite far room start w no 9**. The room seems like rarely used. My baby daughter claimed that she saw a spooky things in the room, but we just ignored her. However, it is resulted I can’t sleep for the whole night. 😅😅😅I found myself a little bit itchy with the bedsheet , the room smells wood etc. Nonetheless, it is located at the best location by walking distance to the Mall. I would request front room in next booking if we visit Bali again.
This is the 3rd time staying here, great location right across the road from the beach and next to beach walk shopping centre. The hotel itself is a lovely size not too big,the pool is a little dated but fine for a dip and cool off. The rooms are spacious, comfy beds, good aircon bathrooms all functional. its not lavish in anyway but has everything that you could need in a room. Be aware that there is lots of renovation work going on at the moment in the back half of the hotel. It didnt impact us in anyway as we were at the front of the hotel but if you had a room at the back you would not be happy with all the scaffolding etc around. All in all a super hotel with the friendliest of staff, the girls on reception are amazing along with everyone else. Will definitely be going back.
Old hotel with very good location ”
The hotel is a bit old but renovation is on going during our stay. It is nicely located in front of the beach across the street. Still their facilities are great. The pool is very clean and huge with a pool bar on it. The only problem is it is only open only until 7PM. They served very good and tasty breakfast. The only thing I noticed which needs improvement is their rooms as some closets were no longer well maintained as well as their double locks. Overall we had a great stay at this hotel and we probably will stay here again when we return to Bali in the future.
The part that I like the most was the housekeeping for the room which has been done daily, as the room is always neat and clean every time we got back. The water in the shower should be fixed to be stronger, the current was way too weak. There were way too many flies in the dining area. The cushions in the dining area are too old and dirty. The sink area in the hotel room is too old, the container that used to hold the toiletries next to the sink is full of dust.
We have stay here on 4 occasions before and enjoy it so much we are bring our whole family next time. location is central to everything. rooms are good size and well serviced. staff are so helpful and friendly. great pool and swim up bar.
Does what it says on the tin ! ”
Nice place and recommended Good breakfast Good swim up bar Right near poppies 1 + 2 and cross the road and you are on the beach too. The only reason I mark one down for location is due to Kuta is a full on city and it’s not possible to walk out with out being offered a million taxi rides etc. but over all good place and would use again. Amazing massage at the spa in hotel !
Happy repeat customer”
Grand Istana Rama is in a good location on the beach, next to Beachwalk. The staff are their best asset, always friendly and helpful. The rooms and gardens are clean and tidy and the pool area is large. The New Year's Eve buffet dinner was exceptional.
Pros, on the beach, has all the facilities that one would require from a hotel. Close to shopping and the buzz of Bali. The pool is a nice size allowing guests to be able to enjoy the pool without bumping into each other. Cons, the smaller restaurant associated with the hotel is not up to standard with the hotel rating and facilities that the hotel provides however the restaurant from the hotel itself is wonderful.
Convenient location (next to a shopping Mall, and Kuta Beach is 20m away) and low price ”
Friendly staff in a clean and well managed rooms and premises. The bathroom has no sink. It's outside. The breakfast spread at the Samudera Restaurant was good. There's seating which faces a main road, across which is Kuta Beach. The hotel was next to Beachwalk Mall, a modern shopping centre with a wide variety of dining options.
Nice hotel across the street from the beach.”
Nice hotel, great staff, nice breakfast buffet across the road from the beach. The hotel is next to the mall so good for shopping & restos, also a grocery store. The room was large, clean, had a AC, free wifi, fridge, kettle, balcony and more. They have a nice large pool with loungers & umbrellas. The hotel can also arrange tours. Nice place and would stay there again if in the area.
Have stayed here quite a few times now. I live in BALI and like to spend a few days in Kuta now and then. This is a very large old style BALI hotel. It has nice gardens and is kept in good condition. The breakfast is not lavish but is more than adequate with Indonesian and western offerings. The position is superb. It is located on the beach and next door to The Beachwalk Mall. There Zane many eating options within a few minutes walk.
Exceptionally nice hotel staff
Old Hotel, but Great location!!”
Even it's an old hotel but i love the way that it's quite clean and the maintenance good enough. But most of all i think this hotel has affordable price in Kuta with really great location. Since it's located right in front of the famous kuta beach. @theadventurous_guy
I do make the occasional golfing trip to Indonesia with my golfing buddies so far so good.This trip, in particular, was enjoyable, the golfing and food.Discovered the best porridge restaurant in Bali this trip.Good and tasty
Close to beach and shopping mall”
One good thing is this resort to next to the beach, so you can simply go there without any hassle. The beach is not the best one in Bali, but good for surfing. Too many cars and motors in the area so it doesn't make it good location for walking. Its close to streets of restaurants, spas, pubs though. If you want to simply enjoy sunshine and beach, there are better choices outside Kota. Only thing is given the rating and price of this hotel, the room cleanliness and refurbishment should be improved. I can see a dead mosquito on the corner of the table of washbasin but it has never been cleaned for 3 days. The outlook of the garden is nice and the pool is fantastic though.
Old balinese style hotel. Great location next to beach and Beach walk shopping center. Pool area was nice but there could be more sunbeds. Breakfast was really good and lot of choices. Staff was nice except one woman in reception. Would def. stay here again!
Close to Kuta Beach and Beachwalk”
The property is a little dated and the rooms a little disappointing and tired and furniture looks like it is from the late 70's or early 80's. I could have went on vacation with my parents to a hotel like this 40 yrs ago.The bathrooms need a complete renovation. The washbasin was cracked and the water drainage poor, the bath should be removed and a nice rain shower installed. Water was always spilling out onto the floor and the mats always damp. The bed mattress sagged. The toilet looked like the cheapest one could buy.
