Pros: Friendly owner, amazing ambiance, clean room, and very good breakfast!!
Cons: it's a little bit out of the way. If you don't mind walking over 10mins, then this place is for you.
Highky recommend this place for solo travelers.
Wayan and his family are super nice, helpful, warm and friendly, we had a wonderful time in Ubud. The room was large, clean, nicely decorated, the bed comfortable and the small terrace very nice. We felt very well cared and very comfortable.
From Wayan and his family, we have learned a lot about Bali and its culture as religion. It was really nice experience staying in a traditional family and it was only about 12mins walk to the main part of town center or 4 min with scooter. You can rent a scooter there (for very good price). Each morning Wayan's mother cooked a delicious breakfast for us, Indonesian cuisine, served with fresh juice and fruits and we was always greeted with a smile. Wifi very good, Air-con working well, coffee and tea or water available any time. Anything you need, just speak to Wayan, he will certainly try his best to make sure you enjoy your time not just in Ubud but other places in Bali. Get a help to buy and register a local sim card. Get a good advices about spa, tours, places to eat or to visit. Get a great discount on ATV rides. Organised airport pickup and last day dropped to airport together with family. We even take part in ceremony. With Wayans cousin Eka we made excursions and had a good time.
We would definitely recommend for an enjoyable stay in Ubud!
Thanks Wayan, our stay in Ubud was very special because of your wonderful place and family.
After about 3 weeks of hopping accommodations, Ubud Room's B&B was the best one so far. It's a 10 minute walking distance from Ubud Palace, which is a straight road. The whole family –which lives on-premise– is very welcoming and helpful. Every morning we were welcomed with a typical Balinese breakfast before we started our day. The whole compound is beautiful and well maintained.
The host is very friendly and helped us find our way around Ubud. He likes to talk about his "simple" home and the Balinese way of life. It is a good story to listen to. He also told us which places to avoid because of unnecessarily high prices and which temples where best to visit. Also the ones that tourists hadn't found yet ;-). He arranged a private car for us (against a set price) to pick us up from the airport and was kind enough to bring us to our next destination.
Its the best homestay in Central Ubud. There are no faults at all. Place is not far from the main street with shops and caffes, but its not too close so you would be annoyed by noise.
Room has a big bed with good mattress and pillows. There is no AC but the fan does the job well. The lady of the house gave us some electrical device for mosquitos and it worked well. Shower had very good presure and hot water :) also toiletries like soap and shampoo.
As we arrived late we had dinner at the guesthouse and it was very tasty.
Everyone was so sweet and welcoming that it made our stay that more special.
We also got very big brrakfast in the morning and that was a huge plus. During our stay we had free coffee and tea.
Before we left the owner recommended us this wonderful application Maps.me which allows to use gps on your iphone offline. We travelled all over island by motorbike and that application served us well and for that we are very greatful to the owner of this homestay.
I highly recommend this place of you would like to stay in Central Ubud. Strong 10 points.
I loved my short stay with wonderful Wayan and his family. I feel I experienced true Balinese hospitality. The room has a comfortable bed, commode, desk, night tables, ceiling fan, bathroom. I enjoyed a lovely breakfast each day on the terrace. Ubud Palace and many restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Wayan helped me with my transportation needs and we had great conversation. I highly recommend this place!
