    An older hotel but spacious rooms and bathrooms, AAA+ location, great pool, restaurant and parking.”

    We have stayed in a few hotels in Kuta and Grand Istana Rama 3 times. All rooms are spacious and the courtyard rooms are excellent with huge bathrooms as well. Pool with sunken bar, fantastc restaurants (2) , one specialising in Japanese. Live music and buffet dinners as well. All this right next door to Beachwalk Mall and directly opposite Kuta Beach. Easy parking on site too. Excellent value for money. This is now our Kuta Beach hotel of choice. Adults young or old and ki.ds will love it too.

    Service was very good, friendly staff, the location is superb: right next to a shopping mall, which in actually a great shortcut to Jl poppies 2 (road) as well, rooms were clean although a bit dated, it's not the newest place but for long time travellers like us just fine for the price. Breakfast was ok, standard, but we really enjoyed the pool and bar, and the entertainment in the restaurant in the evening : very good buffet and band. Surely recommended !

    Great location well situated for shopping, the beach, transport, restaurants and bars. The hotel has had some double upgrades which seem to still be in progress but without disturbance.

    Out dated. ”

    Very old. Needs renovations. They charge thought the roof for accommodation in peak times, but in peak times they have part of the resort closed down, not a word of it online when your booking! Sitting around the pool during school holidays and you have scaffolding right next to you and the constant banging. On check in, didn't even offer me early check-in, room was ready as she told me "we've upgraded you to a delux room" but no mention for a fee I could access the room early. We had to wait the 2 whole hours before our room was given to us. And then, it wasn't even an upgrade! I asked for two single beds, they gave us one double bed! It wasn't an upgrade it was a stuff up by them, then them trying to palm it off as an upgrade. The breakfast was the worst I've ever had. It took over 10mins to get eggs, one person cooking then she ran out of eggs! There weren't enough tables, and they weren't cleaned fast enough and reset, every morning I had to ask for cutlery,!

    Location is pretty much in the middle of Kuta near Poppy's Lane 1 & 2. Beach just across the road. Breakfast was very good considering that it was included in price. Staff all really nice and friendly. We stayed in one of the villas (not the private walled ones) which I would highly recommend. These are in the middle of the resort so no outside noise at night. Ground floor, so quick and easy access to street and/or pool area. Large room with clean bathroom and good facilities. Pretty hard to beat this place for this price.

    The staffs were good, helpful and polite. The SPA was better than outside and the staffs at spa are also good. The breakfast is not so great. The facilities are Ok, the hotel itself is pleasant and quite. But the interior of the room are not up to the standard - example, the aircon is making noise, the mattress is not great (however, the tried to change another one, but still not so good), there were cockroaches inside the room. Pros is opposite to kuta beach, nearby minimarts, McDonalds, food courts, shopping malls.

    Location is great. Amenities are ok. Value for money. But had issues with stuff & their amenities. They provided us room where ac was not working. After complaining 2 times someone from engineering came changed the function of ac remote & told everything will be alright. But it didn't work. we complained again but there was no steps to solve the issue. Then again after complaining & shouting at reception they changed the room at 2AM. As a foreign traveler & with the amount of spending for sure I was expecting a great service, unfortunately which I didn't get. Apart from this in terms of location it's just along with kuta beach & kuta center.

    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.
