"Lovely quiet hotel"
I'd read that drivers had trouble finding the hotel, so I wrote down the streets to take to get there - Gelogor Carik is a huge long road with dozens of offroads (the hotel is on one of them) so mention that! We paid 100,000 for the taxi from the airport, not sure if that was very overpriced but the hotel offered (I think) a 70,000 taxi back, so consider that. The area was chaotic (taxis, bikes/cars, restaurants, street vendors, chickens, dogs) but quiet if you turn down any of the Gangs (lanes). When we got to the hotel we were shown to our room, which was small but charming, double bed, window looking out to the outdoor pool (also small but charming), desk, chair, television, ensuite with toilet, shower, sink. Very basic but all you really needed. On the website they don't explain any of the differences between 'deluxe' and 'superior' rooms, and they have more expensive versions of the two which also don't explain - the more expensive ones come with breakfast. I recommend it! We were treated to fresh-cooked omelette, bread, fresh fruit, and sweet hot tea - there was a second option, but we didn't catch it the first day and then went with the omelette after (to not risk it being meat, as we're vegetarians). The staff always seemed available for requests like fresh towels, toilet paper, etc. The internet was quite patchy, but when we needed to use a desktop, they offered the main computer. Overall, Bali Dream Costel was a 5-star example of a 1-star hotel and excellent value.
