Recent guest reviews

We stayed in this hotel for 6 days. This hotel is just few steps away from famous kuta beach and surrounded by shopping mall. Nice hotel staff with friendly gasture. Always keen to help you with smiling face. We loved our stay here. It is definitely value for money.

Worn down, overall dirty. Rooms, furniture and the pool beds were all past their prime. Walls were thin and one could hear everything going on in the next room. Breakfast was poor, motel style. Location was ok, but doesn’t make up for the shabbyness.

My friend and myself stopped here for 9 nights, we found the hotel very good value for money, staff were brilliant and very obliging. Nice location across the road from the beach with a nice view from the restaurant and bar which had music each night. Whilst there was not many other restaurants nearly there was within walking distance. The new Beach front shopping centre next door with food and supermarket.

It's an older hotel and a bit tired looking. However, I chose it as it is in a great location, right on the beach, and has all of the required facilities at a very good price. The staff are all lovely and go to great efforts to make you really comfortable. My only criticisms are that the swimming pool and running water in the bathroom are desalinated water (still slightly salty) and that the wi-fi is slow. Overall great value for money though.

Return visit, our room was much nicer this time. Large & clean. Pros - location, entertainment at the Tequila bar is always fun, great buffet breakfast. Beautiful gardens, good WIFI, great staff. Cons - Non spring to mind.

Nice little spot along the walk to Kuta from Seminyak( beach side) Comfy couches facing the water, ceiling fans to get a breeze. Slow service even though it was just the two of us. The yellow decor makes this place stand out after a long walk in the sun. Clean toilets are a bonus!

We really enjoyed our stay at Grand Istana Rama. The staff are so friendly and they even surprised my friend with a cake from hotel management because they noticed it was her birthday from her passport. This was so unexpected and beyond sweet. The hotel is very clean and the pool is amazing. We really enjoyed the breakfast and service at breakfast. The hotel is perfectly located next to Beachwalk mall, close to markets and opposite the beach. I will definitely stay at the Grand Istana Rama on my return to Bali again.

Bang opposite Kuta beach. Next to a shopping center. Great price. Good breakfast spread given the price. However, what stood out for me was that the hotel allowed modifications to my reservations. I had pre-booked reservations and the hotel was not obligated to make changes. But they heeded to my request for change of dates (as Air Asia had rescheduled my flight dates unilaterally) without much fuss. Thanks a ton guys!

My girlfriend and I stayed in a deluxe room without a balcony which was great, the room was spacious and had everything we needed, the major stand out for this hotel is definitely the pool and poolside bar, the cocktails are very strong and the beers and food are very nice, if you stay here I definitely recommend having a day just chilling by the pool drinking and ordering food from the restaurant next door! The staff were very friendly always saying hello and asking how you are if you walk past them!

We stayed here for my birthday as we wanted a reasonable priced hotel considering we weren’t in Bali for long. The rooms are nice and clean though the bathroom could use an upgrade as the shower heads weren’t great and the water wasn’t that hot. The pool was great and so was the pool bar. The hotel surprised me with a birthday cake which was great :) we hadn’t told them it was my birthday but they obviously noticed from my passport! We were also flying out around midnight and checked out earlier that day. When we came back from a day out and about they let us shower and get ready in a spare room which was AMAZING! Great customer service!!
