I booked this hotel on a whim as Airasiago were offering a great hotel and flight combo that was too good to refuse.
At a little over $50 a night, I just hoped that it was clean and tidy. The hotel soon exceeded my expectations.
The sleek and modern design concept extended to more than just the exterior. Quest featured beautiful deep purple furnishings and fixtures throughout, an elegant but efficient lobby, friendly and professional service and 5 star facilities.
The location is not perfect. The main problem is not the distance from the main tourist streets of nightclubs and restaurants (which is only a short ten minute stroll) but more the fact that you have to cross a very busy main road to get there. We found it almost impossible to cross and you literally just have to step out and pray to god that nobody runs you over. I would recommend walking down to the road and waiting for a taxi, they are super cheap anyway. If it is your first time to Bali or you are planning your dream Bali holiday I wouldn't recommend staying here, based solely on location. However, if you are one of the many regular Bali visitors who have been there so many times that you purely just want to relax by the pool and only do a few touristy things then I guarantee that this hotel is perfect to just relax and easy to take a short taxi ride to the things you really want to go to.
Other than location, below are the major pros and cons.
- Rooms and bathrooms
The rooms are tastefully decorated with well-designed feature walls, high ceilings, very comfy beds, LCD TV's and large modern bathrooms. As the hotel is very new, all furniture and facilities are fresh and clean.
- Swimming Pool
The swimming pool is spotlessly clean and stylish with a great infinity style design. It also has a separate kid's pool. Towels are readily available and the sun chairs are comfy and sturdy.
- Swim-up Bar
The swim-up bar has decent cocktails that aren't too expensive. The mojitos and strawberry crushes are tasty.
The attached restaurant (Lotus Pond Cafe) is very affordable and has quite a decent range of food.
- Spa Services
Very professional massage services and very cheap too. I paid 200,000 rupiah for a 90 minute traditional Balinese massage where I got to choose which massage oil scent I wanted and that's pretty good value compared to other hotels.
- Overall 4 star feel
The staff's professionalism and little details such as stocked mini bar, swipe access room cards and the supply of complimentary toiletries make this hotel seem in a much higher category than other 3-star hotels.
As previously mentioned, the location is just a little bit out of the main section. Which could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what you want.
Breakfast is not the best in any Bali hotels to be honest, as they rarely have pork bacon and hash browns are often substituted for potato wedges. The breakfast here wasn't the worst that I've had, but I did feel that it catered more to an Asian tourist - lots of rice, noodles and curries, which to me, is not breakfast. Again, that's just my interpretation.
On a final note, the hotel was very impressive and spotlessly clean and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there.
