    Staff were second to none. Brilliant. Could note do enough for us. Was placed in an area that was close to everything but in a quiet secluded spot.

    Can't wait to visit Ubud again and stay at Nicks Pension. The breakfast was ok but can not fault anything else (Plenty of restaurants nearby if wanted more or something different). We stayed with our 14 year old daughter and had THE best experience of our holiday. It is a short walk to everything in Ubud nestled in the rainforest overlooking the rice fields. 20 min walk to the monkey forest and 5 min walk to the market and main streets. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! !!!!!!!!!

    We were very happy with all service. Upgraded room which was nice bonus however all rooms looked nice. Location awesome. Close to everything. Many times to Bali but first time stayed in Ubud and would definitely return to this hotel. If you are in to healthy food would also recommend 15 minute to amazing cafe called Alchemy near Blanco museum. Well worth looking up!:) Thank you Nick's Pension for a fabulous to Ubud.

    Location, breakfast, comfort

    I booked a delux room, which had a large fairly comfortable bed with a mildly hard mattress. The room looked over rice patties, which are pretty, but the best are the the river view rooms, and I was disappointed not to get one. The room had AC and full mosquito netting over the bed. evertyyhing is walkable from this central location, due to the path from the back over the river to Monket forest road. Great place, I would absolutley stay here again. Great value for price. The pool was really nice as well.

    Great 3 night stay in ubud. Nicks pension, although a little confusing for our cab driver is one street over from the main Monkey Forest Road and accessible by a bridge over the river which makes life very easy. Staff are great and super helpful and friendly - I got sick and they even drove me to the local doctor. The pool is a welcome relief after a morning walking and beers refreshingly cold. Tho the rooms could do with a lick of paint, for what you pay, this really isn't a complaint. Would recommend

    I loved my stay here. I don't know why it doesn't get a higher rating. The hotel is well kept; our room was lovely and cleaned every day; the gardens are just beautiful and so well kept; the pool was great. Really - for the money - this was fantastic value. We booked a room a the lower end of the price range and it was wonderful - why pay more? We are staying at very budget hotels because we are travelling a long time. This hotel was a wonderful treat for us even though we paid a bit more than usual.

    5-star feel, amazing staff and food, very relaxed

    What can I stay? This is one of the nicest places we've stayed in months of busy travelling. Might not be the cheapest place in Ubud, but it is still low budget and completely exceeded our expectations. The rooms are very private and hidden away, surrounded by beautiful gardens. The restaurant and bar are suburb, you don't need to go far. The staff are great, very friendly and professional. The location is not perfect but is a short walk away from central Ubud. If you want affordable pampering, this is the place!

    Booked 6 standard rooms (using 2 bookings), 2 of them are upgraded to superior room facing to small river. All rooms have nice carved door with traditional lock (we love it), hot water and air conditioner, no TV (no problem for us). Superior room has water kettle and fridge, which standard room does not (also no problem for us). Hotel staff is very helpful with our luggages, a bit of walk and steps to the rooms. Swimming pool is not big, but nice and clean. Definitely will stay there again.

    The gardens, the location, the staff!

    What a find! Nestled among the rice fields, yet only a short (but energetic) stroll (because of all the steps!) To shopping, dining and all things cultural. The gardens are beautifully maintained. We stayed in a superior room, which was located close to the river/creek that runs through the property. Although not new by any means, the room was well maintained. The room had a king bed and a king single. Unfortunately the mattresses were only foam, but still on the okay side. There was no TV (when we booked no rooms with a TV were available), but as we knew that it wasn't a problem. The staff are wonderful and go out of their way to help! Breakfast was included in our (what I consider very cheap) room rate. Breakfast was a little meagre, but you could add things like an omelette for only a couple of dollars AUD. J.L. Bisma is a fairly quiet street, with a few good restaurants and a couple of spas. All in all we were very happy at this hotel.

    We really struggled to find the hotel when we arrived as there are many 'Nick' places (Nick's homestay and Private bungalows). However, once we got there, it was easy to get around and the staff were really helpful. The room was basic, yet comfortable. Would have liked the towels to be changed more and a hair dryer. We booked all our tours from here a day before. No need to book in advance.

    Walking distance to almost everything you like to do in Ubud. Friendly staff. Well kept room and surroundings.

    We liked their pancake and toasted bread breakfast. They can improve on their Indonesian food breakfast. The room was more than enough you'd expect of a budget hotel. The mattress and pillows were comfortable, the wooden bed frame though constantly squeeks when you move as you go to sleep.
