Grand city is grand

Reviewed April 15, 2012 NEW

Stayed one night upon recommendation of a friend. For the price point was impressed with the accommodations. Large suits, spacious modern bathroom and amenities. The TV even had english channels! Though staff knew limited english, they were very friendly, helpful & accommodating. The most unique experience was the restaurant. The pics on the website are clearly staged. The restaurant i experienced was far from acceptable. Dirty white linens on 6 round tables with no adornments or no cutlery laid out; sub-zero ambiance. I sat down for 10 minutes without service.. not a soul in site - guest or staff. The resonating rumble in the belly forced me to go to the front desk to inquire if the restaurant was open. After many nods of assurance and cook hunted down, i waited an exorbitant time for the cook to prepare the meal from scratch, as i could hear the cleaver busily chopping away. As i waited, i feared gastro-intestinal duress - based on the less than hygenic state of the restauraunt. But much to my surprise it was one of the best meals i've have in Bali! I would definitely stay here again. Just avert the eyes... perhaps bring a book if you will be dining at the restaurant.
