Nakula Familiar Inn
Jalan Nakula No. 4
Price: 175,000 rp/a night with air conditioning, ceiling fan, & cold water shower
If you're looking for a place to stay in Denpasar, I would recommend that you check out Nakula Familiar Inn. It is set right off the street, but once you step inside the gate and into the courtyard, you forget the narrow streets and bemos screaming by, because you are surround by lush flowers, palm trees, and the beautiful buildings of the family villa. Each room has a private bathroom, and an enclosed balcony. The room we stayed in had a ceiling fan, as well as air conditioning - I do so adore having options! I believe hot water showers may be available, but I'm not certain - we didn't pay for that particular feature. Breakfast was not included in the price, but I was happy to pay for what was offered - choice of eggs, banana pancakes, cereal, fruit plates, juice, coffee and tea. The staff was friendly and helpful, and I enjoyed my stay there. Unfortunately, I don't have pictures of anything but this view from the balcony at sunset, but it was a lovely place to stay, and a nice introduction to Bali.
The have a website (kind of a rarity for places in Bali) here: http://www.nakulafamiliarinn.com/ that has useful practical information (how to get there, the price, etc.) in English and, for the intrepid traveler, in simple Indonesian.
