– From $45 a night
This is a great place if you are looking for a quick exit to and from the airport (about 15min). The staff were super friendly and helpful.
It is pretty good value for the budget price from around $45 a night including breakfast with a decent variety of food. The rooms were quite large compared to other hotels in Bali especially for the price and the balcony was quite small about 1m wide (if you get one). The WiFi was great in my room but, I did hear many complaints about not being able to get a decent connection with out having to sit in the hall.
The restaurant was good and by a fish pond. The swimming pool is quite small and was dirty at the time with only a few chairs (most pools seem to be small in budget hotels). If you are after the usual shopping, beach and fun in the sun then Swiss-Bel Hotel Rainforest is probably not for you. Its about a 2.6km from the beach (about a 35min walk, 10-15min taxi drive) They do offer a shuttle to Kuta beach 3 times a day. There are not too many shops around, a couple of souvenir shops and the Globe apparel store across the road, but its quite far from anything decent with out having to get a Taxi. Crossing the road is a nightmare due to the traffic as well.
Good internet connection (if you can get it)
Restaurant was nice
Close to airport for stopovers.
Decent room size.
A little too far from the beach and most places
Taxi’s can be hard to get when you want.
2.6km from beach (35min walk, 10-15min taxi)
