fave hotel is amazing, so pocket friendly and so perfect. Works out around £15 a night for 2 people in either a twin room or a king bed. Staff are incredible, always there to make your stay as good as possible. Bar next to the pool where they bring drinks to your sun lounger. It was my birthday while staying at fave, and they brought me birthday pancakes as a gesture of good will, which was lovely. Definitely recommend!!
Looking for affordable hotel in the heart of seminyak area? Couldn't find any better than this hotel! Eficient and comfortable, close to everywhere cool in Bali, the hidden bar just next to the hotel (40 thieves)
I was staying here for couple days. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room is cozy, I have ordered for one with balcony because I like to smoke outside. The hotel view from balcony is rare as a budget hotel. The pool is nice and quite wide to swimming. The breakfast is good that has variety of foods. Overall recommend and definitely will come back.
The room was small but very nice, well maintained and a great view ! A bit of a distance from the beach but many close shops and restaurants ! A great place to stay and the staff were very helpful and kind !
Certainly this hotel was fabulous in its time, though sadly (as with most hotels in Bali) no money seems to have gone back into it for repairs & upkeep . It's a shame .. but it's still not a bad place to stay.. we stayed 8 nights & actually enjoyed our time there.. We booked 2 superior rooms (the standard room is too small) & grateful to find a place to stay after our original hotel was a total write off.. We stayed on the 5th floor in 2 superior rooms facing the road. No pretty scenery but problem for us .. The staff at Fave were fabulous & very accommodating - always happy to do all possible to make our stay comfy. Devi at the front desk was extra helpful. Pros: -Great service & affordable stay -Nice outdoor pool area with clean water -Can order drinks & food by the pool - also sunny areas to sunbake -Superior room is quite spacious -Hotel pozzy in between Seminyak square & well known beach clubs. Quieter side of Seminyak so we appreciated that -Nice restaurants & cafes close by Cons -Pool decking needs maintenance as boards coming up & a trip hazard -Hotel rooms clean but linen not washed well - I sent back grey, stained sheets, towels & pillow cases a couple of times -No bathroom amenities -no biggie .. just know to BYO -Bathroom fan very noisy & worked intermittently.. and .. -Most Bathrooms had mould or mould residue (I popped my head in & looked at other rooms too) - Shower water didn't drain well from my bathroom as floor leaning away from the drain .. explains why mould builds up . staff were happy to bleach it a few times for me though :) -No hair dryer (can ask for one each time you need it ) I had brought my own. -No iron in room .. though available if requested & left with us the rest of our stay -No fridge .. now that's a real downer as you can't keep your water cool (we asked & were told no fridges) -Lots of buses with large groups arrived during our stay - some noisy & inconsiderate - older crowds lovely & respectful though. In summary - affordable, friendly & lovely service, would stay again & keep asking for bleach each day :)
I was stay in this hotel for 2 nights. Got my room type Superior with Pool View. When I came at 4pm, my room still not ready yet, I have to wait for 30 minutes but that's not a big deal for me cause I can wait at the restaurant that is right next to the pool. It's super cool that Favehotel have swimming pool although I won't use that cause I can't swim (lol). And I was surprised that they have spacious garden that can acommodate many outdoor events. Then I entered my room, the room size is okay, and it have balcony. Yay! I can see the good view from there. The cleanliness of the room, thumbs up. Too bad that their wifi is not strong enough then I have to use my own internet. This can be a little problem for guest that have to work like me, so please fix it :) Breakfast is so-so, typically favehotel I guess. I only take bread and omelette btw. Near hotel we can find SOOOO MANY restaurants. And Circle K is only right next to the hotel. I have tasted the Monsieur Spoon (kind of fresh pastry shop & restaurant) near the hotel at breakfast time, the croissant was sooo delicious! I love to stay at favehote Umalas, feels like home. Will definitely be back again while visiting Bali. This hotel is highly recommended both for solo traveler or family.. Thank You Favehotel Umalas, send my greeting for all the management. I trully had a very great time during my holiday!
The room is not as big as in the picture, and we can't chose the room view. The exhouster (bathroom van) is very noisy and at the end its stop working :(. I try to call the reception from my room, but it always busy, so i have to come down to the reception. Unfortunately the hotel is always full of tour groups whose behavior is not always good. And they tend to be noisy in the front aisle thus disrupting our rest time in the morning. Thank God most of the time we are outside, so we're not always facing this
I stayed here only for 2 nights but it was one of the worst stay in my life. The hotel developer didn't repair things that should be repaired (like the wallpaper, elevator, etc) the cleaness itself was pretty disappointing, and the breakfast are pretty much the worst. But it make sense with that much of a cost in such a strategic street. But could've been better, keep it up Fave.
This hotel is quite strategic in Seminyak area. We use this hotel basically just to sleep in. The facility is poor and it can be very noisy. The cleanliness can be improved. If you need to enjoy the hotel, this is not the hotel for you. But if you just need to lay your body, it can be your choice. The good thing about this hotel is its location proximity to resto, pharmacy, and night walk.
perfect for: families, solo and groups - would recommend for backpackers who want a nice stay at end of holiday Good: -room was clean and tidy -not bad prices -shops and bars outside were nice - if pricey -pool was large -communal area downstairs was nice -close to airport to consider; rooms not soundproofed from parties outside, a little souless, not a great place to meet people
- Free WiFi in rooms and public areas
