Matahari Bungalow Hotel Bali Reviews
Average hotel in a good location Jan 03, 2010
Matahari Bungalow is located smack on Legian Street Bali notorious for its lively nightlife.
Drive from and to the airport takes about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on traffic i.e. what time of the day.
Wanting to be the midst of action and in close proximity to the places we wanted to go for New Years (Jalan Double Six and Jalan Oberoi) we ended up with this hotel.
Although I am quite familiar with Legian area, this hotel is pretty hard to find. We missed it the first time we drove down the street due the fact that the sign (even if it was in hot pink) was rather small, add cursive text and the shop in front of it..the hotel is pretty much obscured.
Reception area is small and dim. Pathway leading to bungalows, rooms and pool is lined with trees and flower bushes making the environment quite serene. But it could use some more lighting as it was pretty difficult for me to see after a night out.
We had a garden view room. The exterior looked okay but once we climbed up the stairs to the third floor and opened the door, that notion was gone in an instant. The room looked old and smelled musty. Air conditioning didnt function properly, we asked for a technician on the first day and they only sent someone up on the third day. The bathroom showed its age but nevertheless still clean. Water pressure of the shower is so low, we can only get a drizzle. Water rather salty but that was expected as we were close to the beach.
Breakfast consisted of bread/toast, fried rice/noodles, fresh fruit (water melon, melon, papaya and pineapple), coffee, tea and orange concentrate.
Service is bad, they didnt know how to make an omelette, instead I was given fried egg and to top it off I was charged Rp.25,000 when I could have a 3 egg omelette in a restaurant down the road for Rp. 8,000
The best thing about this hotel is the pool and location. The pool is located in the garden. Its leafy and a great place to relax with a clod bottle of Bintang (local beer) at the end of the day.
Everything you want can be found a stroll away, the beach, souvenirs, swimming gear, balinese massage, internet, atm, convenience store, pharmacy, restaurants, bars and clubs.
