A hotel of simple comfort and warm welcomes, offering a pleasant environment. Mere steps away from the beach at Kuta, it is separated from it by a road. Very good choice for a two star.
Located in the northen part of the Kuta urban area, mere seconds from the centre, the hotel is also 3 miles from the airport, or 10 to 30 minutes depending on traffic.
The hotel is located directly behind the road that borders the main public beach in Kuta. The hotel clientele is predominantly Australian.
Built in 1982, the Bali Inan Cottage boasts 146 rooms, split between 56 traditional-style bungalows and a modern building. These various infrastructures are scattered through a calm, wooded park containing two good-sized swimming pools to the rear. The buildings also nestle alongside several traditional-style massage rooms (though the road is lamentably close by) and a pleasant restaurant. The friendly ambiance of this unpretentious hotel is greatly welcome, while the hotel itself is patronised by regulars (mostly Australian).
While the exterior of the bungalows shows off a pleasant traditional architecture - straw roofs and stone walls - the interior is contrastingly basic, with old furniture, an ageless television, old floor tiles and a well-weathered air conditioning system. On the plus side, there is a small terrace at the front with a low table and chairs, and an external bathroom and WC.
The restaurant environment is generally good, containing wooden furniture and located by the side of the main pool. Its atmosphere is pleasant during its reasonably priced service of European specialities (pizzas, pastas, salads and grilled meats) and Indonesian delicacies - all for less than 2.5 pounds sterling per plate (26,000 rupiahs).
