Reviewed 27 June 2017 via mobile

The view was fantastic! you could see the lake and mount batur, very beautiful!

But unfortunately, everything else was far from good.
-the room smelled moldy
-there was dirt everywhere
-hair on the bed
-mice in our room at night
-the toilet was also dirty and it smelled badly
-one of the two showers was defect, the other one was just gross

We stayed in the dorm, and no matter how cheap it is, i would not stay there again!

We stayed in a shared backpackers room for 2 nights.

A few facts:

- The walls of the room do not go to the ceiling, so you can hear everything! People snoring in the next room, the phone ringing in the lobby, people walking and talking upstairs, we couldn't sleep at all.

- The room had a very moldy smell to it. We heard mice running around at night. (I don't dislike mice but still) The bedsheets were stained and I would not have dared to step on the floor without any shoes.

- The shared bathroom was disgusting! It smelled like it hadn't been cleaned for months. There was never any toilet paper and I wouldn't recomend sitting down on that toilet seat.

- The shared shower was repulsive. 1 shower cabin didn't wortk at. The floors were absolutely gross, there were ants everywhere and the amount of water that came out of the shower head wasn't enough to really shower.

- The restaurant was less than ok. It wasn't horrible but it wasn't ok. The food tasted like it was out of a can and the orange juice was mostly water.

- The only good thing about that hotel is the view which was absolutely stunning!

In conclusion I wouldn't go back to that hotel no matter how cheap it is and I wouldn't recommend it at all!

We booked a superior room, it was big and modern, so it was ok. The view is also nice.

We had to eat at the restaurant as we arrived very late and, being in the middle of nowhere, we couldn't really choose. We were the only clients as I said it was late. It was full of dogs (I love animals, really, but I can imagine that if someone is scared or doesn't want them to be in a restaurant, which I can really understand, they would have been very upset) because those dogs kept jumping on our chairs and trying to get the food... and the staff saw it but they didn't even try to do something...... let's say you could really feel that they didn't feel like working. Also the food itself wasn't that good. (and I'm not picky)

And, cherry on top, at the end of the dinner we saw a rat walking in the floor. Like not a little nice mouse, a BIG rat.

As expected, the breakfast was basic, nothing special especially if you like continental breakfast. So I would suggest it only if you can have dinner and breakfast somewhere else. Basically if you have no other choice :-)

The best thing about this hotel is the breathtaking view of mount batur and the lake. You can see the view from their restaraunt (food is better than i expected here), but we also had the view all day and night from our balcony which was really a blessing. The hotel itself is old and in need of renovation, but everything in it works fine, rooms and bathroom were clean. The service is slow but the staff managed to cater for all our needs on time.

Let me manage your expectation - the facilities are a bit old - but the price is quite cheap, so it's not a bad choice if you just want to stay here for next morning's volcano hike. Most importantly, Mount Batur is just outside your window! For those who come to Bali, you should not miss a journey to Kintamani as you will enjoy the majestic view of an active volcano close enough to impress you. The restaurant has a mountain view too - but be reminded that stray dogs are smart enough to come in and beg for food. Don't panic when you see them.

Room Tip: You can see Mount Batur from all rooms - so no worries!
