We stayed at Astana Kunti Apartments for 4 nights (22nd to 26th Feb, 2012)
Our room was upstairs, overlooking to common "lap pool". The pool area had sun lounges and a raised, platform resting area towards the back. It was a good pool to have a bit of a dip in or swim a few laps.
The rooms are lovely and clean and bright. They're air conditioned, have a kitchenette with microwave, two gas burners, implements and a mini-bar. There was no kettle in our room, so we boiled water in a pot for tea.
The bathroom is not very private, so be prepared to get to know your neighbours well. You can hear the neighbours singing in the shower! Because the floor tiles are very glossy and the bathroom doors are like window shutters (with the angled slats), you can see your room-mates having a shower, even with the doors closed. There's no bathroom privacy!
Other than that, this hotel is great value for money!! The location is wonderful, because it is quiet. There is a taxi depot down the street, so whenever you call for a taxi, it always arrives very quickly. The fare into town will be whatever the minimum fare is (eg. Rp 25,000 for one of the Blue Bird taxis). There is a family of cows living down the road. The road is mostly taken up by villa accommodation.
If you don't fancy the included breakfast (served to your room, as the restaurant is too small to accommodate too many people), there's a "Warung" around the corner called "Garasi Warung". They serve Indonesian-style breakfast (eg. Nasi goreng) and sometimes the menu is only in Indonesian. Try anything on the menu, it's all great food. If Indah brings little pots of "Borongko" to the table, give it a try, it's made of milk, butter and banana. Yum!
Overall, Astana Kunti is a lovely place to stay!
