We booked the Bali Rani as we were looking for a hotel in the heart of Kuta and friends always stay here and recommended it. The location was perfect and it is exactly what we wanted for that. Mini marts nearby, Waterbom just down the road, plenty of good restaurants and the Discovery mall nearby. However on checking in we were advised that they had overbooked and they instead had moved us to their sister hotel at a different location. I had previously read on Tripadvisor that this had happened to someone but felt it was probably some "one of" but obviously not!! We were holidaying with another family who were only coming to Bali as company for our my son who had checked in the day before (who had no problem) and because of this I demanded that we be allocated a room at the hotel we had booked and paid for over seven months before! It took getting my travel agent on the phone in Perth and a great deal of time before my request was finally accommodated. I have since found out it seems if you book the adjoining rooms when you have family etc. you don't seem to get a problem because they do not have this type of accommodation at their other facility but if you book just a regular room you are at risk of being moved to the sister hotel!!! (Both my friends who recommended the hotel and the friends who accompanied us this time had booked the family rooms). We ended up being put in one of the rooms that has the adjoining door so suitable for a family booking, which was near the pool. The view was great and the room had a queen and single bed in in and a couch. All the usual facilities such as bar, safe etc. You have a nice chair and table out the front to sit and look at the pool. Breakfast was ordinary (not the best choices I have had in Bali) but it did have an egg station and a variety of other dishes which were cooked well. The staff were friendly and helpful "most of the time". I would like to say I would stay here again as it was value for money and a great location but I don't think I would be prepared to take the risk unless I was booking a family room!
