“Good hotel, not so good experience”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

We stayed 5 nghts before Christmas for our first trip to Kuta in 20 years of travel to Bali (must be a record). We went to Kuta mainly for the kids (Waterbom etc).The Ida was an economical option for a family of 4 on a budget - we stayed in the deluxe bungalow with 2 queen beds, a better option than 2 rooms for us. Our overall experience was good, central location, close to Matahari for supplies, walking distance to Waterbom. Nice hotel, good pool, generous & good breakfast. But....
I've travelled dives of the world for 30 years (read youth hostels in middle east & south america) and never encountered bed bugs. This hotel is so hard to rate. The first night in Bali of a month I was savaged by bed bugs (i'd never seen them before) Only noticed one in the morning (squashed with blood) it was only the 2nd night the penny dropped and I woke at middnight to see them by the score. My family only had mild bites., but I blew up (severe allergic reaction) so much I couldn't use my hands for a couple of days. All over hands (joints) I still have permanent scars 2 months later - I doubt they'll go. They were huge black blood blisters & I was in excrutiating pain - great for your 1st 24 hours of a holiday. We moved at midnight to another room - I expected more of the same , but the new room was OK. We saw another bungalow during our time with mattress "airing" on the verandah.
The management were very proactive insisting on a doctor and medicine, and kept asking after my health and gave a voucher for a meal. I know you can get bet bugs in the best places, but I felt quite traumatised by the experience.

I only stayed at Ida hotel only one night because could not book my extend stay at the previous hotel. This hotel located behind Kuta square which difficult to find the way to the the hotel. The hotel room was very old and dirty. Cable TV always serve only local language and no English speaking channels. Breakfast was very poor. I would not recommend everyone to stay there.
