by Nick | September 17th, 2003  

Jalan Legian is the main street that runs north- south all the way from Kuta to Seminyak ( although its called Jalan Seminyak when you get in that neighborhood ). All the hotels listed in this guide are fairly close to each other and are approximately 5-10 minutes walk from the beach, same distance to the shopping street at Kuta Square. Lower Jalan Legian has plenty of bars and restaurants and well as souvenir shops. The Bounty ship and Paddy’s are 2 well known bars that attract newcomers.

You have a parking area in front with the reception and lounge test restaurant area.

Rooms are clean and you have a choice between A/C or fan. D�cor is typical sterile white tile with a shared porch area outside and bamboo furniture.

There is a large parking area in front and behind a row of trees is located a single 3-storey block of rooms. Reception is at the right side of the driveway. To the left of the driveway is the breakfast area.

I looked at the at a standard room that was basic and bare looking, but had a TV. Bathtub, white tile floor, bamboo furniture on the porch.

The room was clean and okay for a short term budget tourist.

Jalan Legian #61
Paradiso_bali@hotmail.com

Located on lower Jalan Legian next to Prawita Hotel ( same side ) it has 25 rooms. Hotel runs directly back from the street and is fairly quiet and relaxing the further back you get. Parking lot and reception at front close to main road.

Private terrace, bath/shower, hot water, swimming pool, car rental, tours.

Long row of single storey rooms with porch and bamboo furniture.

The rear pool is next to newer 2 storey rooms on 2 sides. Rooms are quiet, nice and very clean. The pool area feels secluded and is far enough from the street where noise won’t affect visitors.

A/C Double 1 Night $35
A/C Extra Bed 1 Night $15

This place is nicer than many of the other cheap hotels in the vicinity. The price in dollars reflects this. Not sure I’d want to pay $35 for a double though when you are so close to cheaper options. If $35 is inside your budget this place is an okay choice. Right on Jalan Legian, 5 minutes to the beach, surrounded by t-shirt and souvenir shops as well as bars and restaurants.

Hotel Prawita (0361) 751838

Jalan Legian #63

Located next to the Paradiso Hotel the Prawita has 39 rooms in 2 and 3 storey blocks.

This place is unique is layout and design with a street side restaurant, another restaurant under a central bamboo roof and a bar beneath a pond!

Rooms are clean and comfortable. This hotel is quieter than a budget guest house and would be good for a family or a traveler who wants some level of comfort without spending way too much.

Gardens in this place are overflowing and are cared for by the owner. Traditional carvings decorate the property as well as door frames to rooms. I find the doorways to be small but this is a small point.

The Prawita has fish ponds. The street side restaurant is shady and pleasant, its usually empty too so service is no problem. Reception is close to the front of the hotel adjacent to the restaurant and the parking is down a side alley at the back.

The pool is surrounded on 3 sides by rooms and looks quite large and clean. It has a wooden deck area and recliners.

Facilities include: Pool, A/C, Telephone, TV, Hot water, Private Balcony.

Swimming pool view Garden view
Single 1 Night $45 $40
Double 1 Night $50 $45

Although prices are quoted in dollars be sure to negotiate. The manager quoted me a price of 160,000rp per night for a Double.

Breakfast included.

Aquarius Star Hotel (0361) 751762

Jalan Legian #116
Aquariushotel@yahoo.com

Located directly opposite Prawita Hotel. The Aquarius has a restaurant and bar on the first and second levels on the street serving a range of food including Mexican, sandwiches and pizza.

Walking directly back through the bar you come to the reception desk and you will pass 2 rows of bungalows on the way to the pool area.

The bungalows are neat and tidy with a decent bed, writing table and a couple of chairs on the porch. There are an assortment of options for extras including A/C, fridge, TV etc. but a standard room is perfectly okay. In the dry season ( June-October) you don’t need A/C anyway.

Rooms go back quite away off the street and the place feels quite tranquil for somewhere right on Jalan Legian.

The bathroom looks a bit nicer than some of the guests houses I visit, you actually might enjoy taking shower here.

Puri Rama Cottages (0361) 751057

Jalan Legian Gang Troppo Zone

Located across from Sari Club bomb site down small gang ( alley ).

This place is very pleasant. Cream colored buildings with central garden give a very relaxing feeling.

80 rooms on 2 and 3 levels spread around a fairly decent sized site. The owner is on property and is friendly. The rooms are simple and clean, in fact there’s not too much to choose between the rooms here and a guest house like Ronta Bungalows on Poppies II. The quality in the place lies in the extras like having 2 swimming pools, the exterior feel and the lack of noise.

Bathroom didn’t look too appetizing.

The property seems well maintained with the front section of rooms are 3 storey with a central pool.

This hotel would be good for mid range tourists who don’t need a super fancy place, but would like to relax at their hotel. The Puri Rama has its own restaurant too.

Close access to shopping on Jalan Legian and nightlife of Kuta.
