We were stuck in a massive storm on the way to Bangsal to take a boat to the Gili Ilands and because of the weather we were unable to take the boat and had to find suitable accommodation. Lucky for us the owner of this hotel was with us and offer us accommodation at his hotel. We stayed for 1 night and a really pleasant stay. The room is nice and spacous and the bathroom is nice and big and very unique as the top of the shower is open so it`s almost like showering under the stars. The hotel has free wifi and we also got a complementary tea when we came there. Breakfast is simple and the location of the hotel is nice.
Not too far from the airport and Senggigi in central Mataram.
This was quite simply one of the most memorable places we stayed on our 14 month RTW trip in 2009/2010. It wasn’t especially luxurious or unique but our hostess Kade and her wonderfully accommodating and pleasant disposition made our stay here so comfortable. She has taken great pride in building and decorating her four gorgeous rooms located in well kept garden of her family home. Rumah Kundun’s four rooms have been lovingly decorated in a bright, fresh manner with the personal touch that us often lacking in budget accommodation. Each room has a private en-suite (cold water only – the norm on the islands) and a terrace with hammocks and seating. A simple but tasty breakfast is included (eggs, pancakes, fruit, tea/coffee) and is brought to your room every morning. And the best thing about Rumah Kundun, apart from Kade herself, is the ridiculously low price...$4 a night per person sharing!!! Best accommodation bargain ever
Mimpimanis has established itself as a clean, friendly, local Balinese/english owned homestay in Kuta at the southern end of Lombok.
We enjoyed our stay here with Gemma and Made, being shown the local sites and beaches. Made runs a very popular fishing trip in a local boat, the catch being cooked for you to enjoy afterwards !
The accommodation is in the family compound consisting of two units and a house with breakfast included. Motor bikes and push bikes for hire. 10 mins from the ocean
As i mentioned the fishing trip is well worth going on.
The beaches in Kuta are wonderful, good for swimming, surfing or relaxing. There are plenty of cheap warungs and restaurants to choose from in Kuta
Mimpi Manis is more of a homestay than a hotel - not because you share a room in the house, but because you are amde to feel so welcome. There are two rooms and one 'house' at Mimpi Manis. The house has two floors, a sitting area and bathroom downstairs and a bedroom with a balcony upstairs - very spacious. Mimpi Manis is less than 2km from the beach at Kuta, Lombok and co-owner Made makes you feel extremely welcome. He will help arrange the hire of motorbikes or bicycles, or drop you into 'town' himself. At night he loves to join in playing boardgames. Each of the rooms has a DVD player and there are many movies to choose from.
Mimpi Manis means 'Sweet Dreams' and you're sure to feel comfortable and relaxed. Highly recommend you stay a night or two if you are in the area.
I've been there with a my friend. The meals were nice, eventhough a bit pricy. The view was ok, like almost everywhere on Air.
But please don't go there. A cidomo driver was very rude and wanted to get some money I guess. Another rude person was 'Jimmy 2000' (he introduced himself like that) who first offered (in a pushy way) some boat tours and after hesitating a bit he approached us later on and was really mad. He shouted at us and used several dirty words - just because we didn't want to buy his boat tour or all the other services he offered.
Getting up the next morning, my shirt was stolen from the veranda which I put there for drying the evening before.
I really recommend you to walk a bit further. The area is nice and 5 or 10 minutes walk later, there are other opportunities.
Just avoid Lucky's Bungalows!
Sorry to say that - but that was not acceptable!
Nice view, but not worth trying!
This is a private villa, lovely to the core with heated pool and 2 bedrooms to accommodate 4. Owner will charge lower if only 2 persons using the lodging. Beautifully furnished and though they do not have in-house dining, staff will be able to assist with take-aways from any restaurants on the island. A fabulous place to stay. Try out their accompany dive center MANTA DIVE too. One of the best dive centers I have been to.
Cleanliness, beautiful decos, heated pool, excellent ambience.

from the main road in front of the beach

comfortably equipped with a/c,
have fresh hot and cold water,
a frigo bar, TV DVD, and safe deposit boxes.
Mattresses and pillows are firm.
Rooms are very clean.
There is a buffet breakfast included
in the price along with afternoon tea.
At the time of my visit,
rooms were priced at 400,000 Rp the night
and were definitely worth it,
considering all the comforts offered.
Located a bit to the north, right on
the main street of Gili Trawangan,
is Good Heart Bungalows.
This bungalows are located
amidst the garden of the property facing the sea.
Rooms are cute, clean, providing
a/c, mini bar, a safety box
and satellite TV.
You have a small deck
in the front of you bungalow
where you can sit
and idle away your time.
The bathroom is open air and provides fresh water.
In comparison to other places to stay for the same price,
I found it to be a bit over price, but not by that much.
They were asking 400,000 Rp at the time of my visit.
They list their prices between 350,000 – 800,000
depending on the demand.
Located a bit north
on the eastern side of the island,
is Easy Bungalows, facing the sea.
Their prices are still reasonable,
(at the time of my visit),
but the fact that there is no a/c
could also have a factor
at keeping their rates down.
Rooms are clean and simple.
A fan is provided in the room
and windows are large.
Bathrooms are also ample and open air,
but no hot or fresh water here.
Rooms do not have any extra amenities,
but they are clean.
The price at the time of my visit
was 250,000 Rp a night.

a pleasant feel to it
and faces the sea.

give shade to the salt water pool which,
is perfect if you are traveling with children.
All rooms have hot and cold water showers.
Rooms were clean and comfortable.

Plenty of closet space.
Phone and internet connections is provided.
Prices for the bungalows ranged
from 55- 95 USD at the time of my visit.

Quite rundown, with air-con made the rooms felt so cold though it has clean sheet and blanket. No cable TV provided, and no breakfast meal. Breakfast meal will be on request and not with a package with the room rates. The rooms are in bungalow-style, which made one and another room separated quite with distances. A city hotel, which I will not recommend, though the price is cheap, and the location is strategically good.
For budget traveller who need an accomodation with around 20USD per night. This is a city hotel. The rooms are not so large, but there is a kitchen-like facility in each room provided. A hot and cold water shower and toast-breakfast also provided. You could expect clean sheet and blanket, air-con and cable TV.
It sits on a hillside about a kilometer from town. There is a beautiful pool overlooking the ocean and an overpriced restaurant. When I stayed there in March 2001 is cost about $4 US a night and it was run by a Swedish lady. It was a short walk into town, where there are a few inexpensive places to eat, and to the beach.
The views of the coastline from the hotel are fantastic, and the pool area is beautiful.
We discovered this small but neat hotel while driving along the road west from Lembar harbour, which leads all the way to Bangko Bangko on the western tip of Lombok. Our 2003 edition of the Lonely Planet guide mentions only one hotel along this road, but that information is out of date. There are many new developments.
Bola Bola Paradis has been here since 2000, is owned by a Dutch couple and managed by their caretaker, mr. Made Suarma.
The hotel lies at a quiet beach with a view of Gili Gede. A place to enjoy the quietude and make boat trips to Gili Gede or some other island.
We happened to stay here New Year's Eve 2008, there was a Jogget dance performance by the Sasak community next door and a small party with campfire at the hotel.
The rooms have an original design and a definite Dutch flavour. The 'blue rooms' go for Rp 225,000 double occupancy and the 'yellow rooms' for Rp 350,000 (incl. tax excl. breakfast); we found this good value for money.
There is no restaurant in the neighbourhood, so you have to rely on the hotel kitchen. They offer an varied menu for such a remote place, but prices are above the level at Mataram. Have your meals in the gazebo at the water's edge.
