Grand Istana Rama Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great hotel in a great location. The beach walk and poppies 2 and money changer are not even a 5 minute walk and the staff are wonderful and are eager to help if there is a problem. The food at the restaurant is lovely and they usually have a band playing at the bar. I have stayed here twice and will come back again

The beach villa has multiple bungalow style rooms, with a clean pool and the samudera restaurant is definitely the highlight. The food is good and it turns into a rock music dinner place by night offering ample sea views. Would recommend for couples, family and friends.

CC ( 18.01.17 ) I and my son stayed here 2 days. The locations beside beach was perfect because we went Bali for surfing, and the service was good with smile. The facility was a little old to us, but we were satisfied. We were satisfied this hotel with price, location, the staff.

We stayed at grand istana Rama for 5 days. Our room was spacious and comfortable with awesome air conditioning, which is a big plus for Canadians. They offer 24 hour room service with a menu big enough to please anyone. The pool is wonderful with a swim up bar and snacks delivered right to your lounge chair. Location is great. Right next door to beach walk mall so we had entertainment for the rainy days. Now the only drawback, the beach. There were people swimming there, but the sand was full of garbage and vendors trying to sell you a bunch of stuff you don’t need. A lady even kept grabbing our hair trying to braid it. If you want a clean beach getaway, I would suggest not staying in Kuta beach.

I arrived at this beautiful hotel on 12 January and will be here till 17 January. I came here to spend my birthday in the beautiful Island of Bali. On the 14 January I went up to Kintamani to view the 2 volcanos, Agung and Batuh. I got back to the hotel at about 5pm and I had a shower and a short rest. At about 7pm I went to get a light dinner then returned to my room. I saw some hotel staff in my room and when I entered they had s cake complete with candles for me. I was greeted with the singing of Happy Birthday. It was so touching. Thank you Grand Istana Rama Hotel. You really made my day.

its arrite.....close to the beach...amenities r ok but they did not give a double bed, as requested....we went for honeymoon and slept on twin bed although we specifically mentioned it and requested for it.....dint have a choice but to accept since we paid in full before reach the property....

The hotel is located near of Kuta Beach and Beachwalk mall at 30 min from the airport. The hotel look good outside, big pool, one restaurant. The room are good size. Now in my opinion the hotel need a good start of renovation and cleaning, only the garden are well maintained. The room are not clean ( they clean my room during the 5 days in 10 min, you cannot do deeply) the desk is dirty,see the photos. In the restaurant the breakfast need to be more attractive and the staff better train. When its raining there is on 5 tables availables for 150 rooms? The receptionist are more playing with their phone instead of taking care of the guest.

The hotel near from kuta beach, good surrounding with Bali culture but need upgrade for cleanliness. Eventhough the hotel near with crowd center but we still can get tranquility. I will recommended this hotel for relatives and friends

Stayed here as we wanted somewhere cheaper this time. Nice place staff are lovely. Breakfast is good and staff will accommodate your needs. Lots of walking though unless like us you need to taxi everywhere which is a problem with the one-way traffic chaos. My only complaint is the amount of flies you have to share breakfast with, this is something that really needs to be taken care of by the restaurant.

Stayed 9 nights in a superior ground floor room. Room was very clean, air conditioner was great. Shower over bath which basically came out as a trickle was not great. Rooms are quite large, plenty of room for your stuff, nice dressing gowns to throw on. The hotel is set back from the road across from the beach. It's a very quiet spot and you can't hear the noise of the traffic or the hoards of people. Beautiful gardens too. The pool is near the front of the hotel so it's not outside your door. Decent sized pool which was never crowded. Pool bar and music was really good. Beer and Smirnoff's cheap (not as cheap as buying them from the mini marts). Cocktails quite expensive as they generally are in Bali. Wine expensive, again as it generally is in Bali. Hotel provides a great breakfast - you name it, they've got it. Staff are lovely. The restaurant at the front is not so good in my opinion. Only ate there once and the food was just okay but not cheap. Better to eat at one of the many restaurants outside the hotel. Overall, this hotel is good value. It's 28 years old and parts could do with an upgrade but the rooms are large, clean and comfortable. It's in a good location across the road from Kuta beach. Great spot for breakfast then a walk on the beach. I would stay there again.
