The architecture and surroundings at Sania's are stunning - lush gardens, swimming pool, elaborate statuary and carved furniture, Barong masks etc. It's like being in a palace, or a temple.

But behind appearances, the rooms are basic and service is sadly lacking.

My bathroom had no toiletries, not even a piece of soap. The plumbing was dodgy (had to unblock the toilet) and I never got any hot water despite running the shower for several minutes. The room had only a single electrical outlet (used for lighting). The A/C did work OK.

The staff were generally uninterested, although polite when asked. They never offered to clean my room (3 nights) and sometimes it was difficult to locate anyone to talk to.

On the positive side, the location is very central, right in the Ubud market. Note, no vehicle access and this can be difficult if your taxi driver is unfamiliar with the area.

The breakfast was better than some, with a fresh fruit salad included.

A unique setting, let down by indifferent service and facilities.

When we arrived, we received a room with only one working outlet which was used for the lamp. We complained and then we were moved to a different room downstairs that had more usable outlets.

We were in room # 9. We noticed a large amount of bees or wasps living above our room (possibly thousands). We again complained as it is quite dangerous to be around these insects. The guy came to check the bees/wasps and said not to turn the light on in our room to keep them away! WTF?

The breakfast Service is slow but it was slow everywhere so it is not a negative thing. Everyone in the hotel is on island time: nobody is in a rush.

The pool was great. There are only 4 beds by the poolside though.

The staff was trying to be as helpful as possible, but their service is not exactly as I am used to.

The internet connection is a disaster in the hotel. Sometimes there is connection and sometimes there isn't. We never had any connection in our room.

There was hot water in the room but we had to wait quite a few minutes until the water was hot.

There is a good and affordable restaurant in the hotel. We had breakfast included in the room price every morning. There are only 7 choices but that was good enough. The fresh fruit was great.

This place is rather cute, right in the hub of the markets. It's Balinese bungalows are clean, comfortable, and serviced daily. For the price it's great value, I'm not one for luxury when on a budget holiday. For $30 a night I get a clean room, with balcony, a/c, pool. A beautiful ambience. The staff are not a friendly and helpful as others I've experienced, but they weren't rude either. Central to everywhere. And surprisingly quiet considering where we are. I'd definitely stay again.

I have now visited Sania twice and loved it as much the second time as the first! Its set in the middle of the market which is the perfect location in the hub of ubud yet as soon as you walk through the stunning carved Balinese doors, you enter a tranquil Bali home-stay made up of many dwellings or pavilions. the architecture is just incredible due to its stone and wood calving which leads to a beautiful swimming pool. The rooms are simple, clean with private tropical feeling balcony's. The price to stay is an absolute bargain and i am so chuffed they remain to keep it competitive. the breakfast is a basic breakfast like many other home-stays of toast, fruit with coffee and tea but lovely to enjoy in the garden setting.

I cant wait to visit again! it feels like a home from home!

Room Tip: Bottom floor will always be cooler - though the rooms are very cool

While walking over the market, we went spontaneously there to have some dinner. The garden is really nice and traditional - like in a tempel. Dinner was fantastic. Prices are awesome. We recommend: go there.
