Alright Bar WrongsPosted Jan 3, 2015
Pros: I liked nothing about the hotel.
Cons: Reception would run so much smoothly if there weren't to many people with duplicative jobs. Make decisions with waiting for thier superiors.
Location: The location is great for restaurants and live music.
One of the most overrated and overpriced hotels I have stayed at. The staff are not very good at solving problems, granted they were very friendly. I was reminded to check in by 2.00 PM and asked to pay on arrival although the room wasn't ready till 3.00 PM. They are not very smart! In situations like that, guests should be given towels and directed to cool down by the bar or a swim in the pool or at least suggest tours and suggest drinks at the adjoining bar owned by them. At the very least Internet should be accessible in all areas to wait out the inefficiency of the staff. I was told the WI-FI reception was poor in the lobby but better in the room. I was relying on facebook and Skype for communicating in preparation for the NYE Party. It didn't happen. The Internet wasn't fixed till the next day. Placing a call using the landline required approvals from their superiors. I was willing to pay!

A little tiredPosted Nov 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
I have stayed at the Barong 5 times and haven't really had any complaints but it is starting to look tired and in need of a tidy up. The location is ideal for me, 5 minutes one way to the beach and 5 minutes the other to the nightclub area. It is surrounded with shops and markets. The room itself is looking very worn as is the rest of the hotel. It was renovated about 3 years ago but looks as though it hasn't been touched since. The garden has been let go with weeds everywhere including throughout the paving. The rooms have mound on the walls and the fixtures are starting to fail. Service is great and the food/drinks are quite cheap for hotel prices. The hotel rate itself is also quite cheap and varies depending on how full it is. I would still stay here again but a bit of a tidy up would improve the place substantially.

ロケーションはいいものの…Posted Oct 18, 2013
今回、旦那(アメリカ国籍)と12日間滞在しました。クタビーチやレギャン通りには近くロケーションは良いのですが、客層が…オーストラリア人やニュージーランド人が90%日本人は私、一人でした。 家族連れもいましたが、２０〜３０代のグループが大半でした。プールはオーストラリア人グループで貸切状態で騒ぐので一度も利用できず、さらには夜中に隣の部屋でグループ内での喧嘩が始まり、泣くは殴るは、物を投げつけるは…セキュリティに事情を話してホテルから出て行ってもらうよう頼む次第でした。 このホテルには限らず、安くてビーチに近い場所には必ずこういった宿泊客がいるものです。まぁ、このホテルではセキュリティが対応してくれますが。ただ、英語圏の客ばかりなので日本語は通じないので英語が必須です。 ホテルのサービスに関しては、あまり期待しないで下さい。部屋の清掃後、タオルの置き忘れが何度もありました。さらにはそのタオルに鳥？ネズミ？の糞がのっていました。日本ではあり得ませんよね。 日本人が快適に過ごせる場所ではありませんが、あくまでもロケーション重視のホテルでした。

Albergo strategico per nightlife e beachlifePosted Oct 16, 2013
Pros: La posizione.
Cons: La pulizia
Vi ho soggiornato più notti. L'albergo è dotato di piscina ed è in posizione veramente strategica , a cinque minuti di distanza a piedi dallo Skygarden e dalla nightlife e a 10 minuti dalla spiaggia.. Sulle camere è opportuno fare una precisazione. Le camere superior, per quanto "spartane" sono assolutamente preferibili. Infatti la struttura, frequentata da giovanissimi australiani, ha, di fatto, due aree. Una, quella più vicino alla strada, decisamente rumorosa ed affollata, con i giovani australiani che rumoreggiano dalla prima mattina alla tarda nottata in piscina, l'altra, più rientrante, con piscina autonoma, è decisamente più rilassante. Anche le camere sono migliori, più pulite e dotate anche di cassaforte. In conclusione, assolutamente consigliato per i giovani e non purchè non in coppia.

simpel en gezellig hotel dichtbij strandPosted Oct 5, 2013
Wij hebben hier 5 nachten overnacht. De mensne zijn er vriendelijk en alles was inprincipe goed. De badkamer was wel anders dan verwacht maar dat is niet iets om je tegen te houden. Als je van drukte houdt is het een ideale locatie, er is van alles in de buurt! Als je rust zoekt zou ik er zeker niet verblijven. Verder voor partyen, shoppen en strandhangen is het ideaal. En je kan vanuit daar van alles ondernemen met taxi's. Hou er dan alleen rekening mee dat sommige ritten lang kunnn duren.

When you entre the hotel and see the pool its not like on the photos. But the pool on the backside of the hotel is perfect. We stayed 10 days. There is no variation for breakfast. The sheets and the shower curtains have stains and they should thoroughly clean everything. I know now what low budget is and I will never book again. I rather pay extra for hygiene. The staff was real friendly and helpfull and the location is perfect. When you walk out of the streets on the left you will go to the beach and to the right is Kuta Square where the monument is and all the clubs and pubs

Centre to everythingPosted Sep 20, 2013
Pros: Close to everything.
Cons: Turn the music down at least 3 notches.
Location: In poppies 2. beach,shopping mall, nightclubs,poppies 1, matahari, Starbucks.
In the centre of the hussle and bussle of poppies lane 2. turn left to the kuta beach or the beach walk shopping mall or turn right to head towards the night clubs....no need for transport. The hotel mainly had younger gen people and at times could be loud with behaviour and bombing into the pool. Hotel music was very loud on the first 3 days cranking queen, ac/dc, ub40 which become a broken record couldn't get away from it. Had to buy ear plugs from drug store as you could hear it in hotel room. My hotel room was great but simple with bar fridge, tv ( no Australian channel) and bathroom. For cheap accommodation the room is what to be expected. I loved my room. The staff are incredible they look after you like family. They double and triple check to see if your comfortable. A few uncanny characters out the front trying to offer all sorts which can drive you mad
