Me and my 2 friends were searching for a cheap Hotel, 'cause we hadn't that much money as backpackers. We wanted to be in Kuta to be close to the most shops and the restaurants.
So we finally chose Maxi Hotel and our chose was correct. It was a clean Hotel and the Staff was more than friendly. It was always a pleasure to come back to the hotel from a shopping day or another Island-trip.
Twice, there were some problems with our toilet, but the staff fixed it very quick. You have many TV-channels and the pool is quite nice, too.
In the nighttime, the noise is okay. in the rooms located to the pool, you don't here much. It isn't unbearable, like some reviews wrote.
Overall, I think it's a very good hotel for younger people, that want to party in the heart of kuta. But when you're older, you'll probably better look for a more quiet hotel.
Room Tip: Always ask for a room, that is located to the pool-side...they are more quiet.
