BAM! The bright colours hit you in the face when you come in... good first impression, after some boring grey hotels we´ve seen before. The hotel is huge, but luckily the young staff know how to give a personal touch. They seem like a big group of friends, hanging out during and after work and having a lot of fun... some people might find it hard to intrude this group of youngsters to ask a question or ask for a service, but I actually liked the atmosphere they created. Mind that not all of them speak English, so ask before haha.
The rooms were clean, and looked funny. The beds were soft and there was a nice flatscreen TV. The only thing I missed was a fridge and some place to put your suitcase... now I had to put it in a very awkward place, so I literally had to climb over it to get to the other side of the room. I liked the interior of the whole building.
One thing I really didn´t like: there's no laundry service at all! Very strange for such a big hotel. Also no place to do it yourself. Staff was mentioning a laundry service in the street, but that didn't exist any more, we searched for it 45 minutes in the heat and then gave up. As we are travelling for 9 months now, we need to do our laundry every week, and this is the first hotel without facilities. I did some hand washing in the sink, but the room is too small too let it dry... so I put it in the corridor for 1 night, and it was removed and given back to me in a plastic bac, all wet and smelling.
The breakfast was also too much for us... as an European I'm not used to eating more than cornflakes or toast in the morning, so rice with chicken and sambal is way too heavy! On the one hand, it's good to experience some local "tradition" that way, but on the other hand, an alternative would be nice.
Nevertheless, if you want to stay in Denpasar, I think this hotel is a good option.
