Basic hotel with quaint and artsy ambience

Reviewed May 19, 2012

The location was good because it was not along the main road, hence less noise. The nearby surroundings could get dark in the evening though, so it made me a bit nervous (ah, but it was safe! It was just “new place” paranoia – and I can be paranoid anywhere else ;-) . It was along a dark alley of small souvenir shops, obviously the “road less traveled” since most of the activity were happening along the main road. It is about a 10-15 minute walk from the beachfront, the nearby Discovery Mall, a collection of bars and restos, and Hard Rock Café. The breakfast buffet was so-so (my fault for doing this review so late that I can’t remember it exactly… ). But still, with the price of the hotel, one shouldn’t expect a smorgasbord of choices! The restaurant, “DePalm” , offers a menu of different cuisines,predominantly Italian. I ordered minestrone and bruschetta for lunch before we left for Ubud and I was satisfied the Dekuta Hotel is perfect for travelers who are looking for budget + comfort. It has all the basic amenities mixed with the quaint, artsy ambience. The location is good and they have really friendly staff!
