The list is constantly updated and refined!
A guesthouse is an excellent option if you need a place to stay for a week, leave your things upon arriving in Bali, or change the environment. Or if you want to enjoy the nature of Bali, but you have a moderate budget.
Guesthouses can also be suitable for expats living in Bali for an extended period, with a small budget, who cannot find a separate house for rent.
The cost of guesthouses in Bali starts at approximately 125,000 rupiahs per day. Often, a simple breakfast (banana pancake, fruits, toast, coffee) is included in the price. Although if the room is offered to you with a discount, breakfast may not be included.
The list includes good apartments that are suitable for long-term stays. Sometimes, apartments are more convenient than houses because they have a manager or concierge, decent internet, water delivery, and the manager can assist with electricity payment and gas cylinder replacement.
If you rent accommodation for a month in advance, the daily rate is lower, and you can sometimes find apartments with a pool for around 3,500,000 - 4,000,000 rupiahs per month. Most apartments are located in areas such as Jimbaran, Kerobokan, Sanur, and Canggu.
Not all apartments have a private kitchen in each room. However, if there isn't one, there is often a shared kitchen. If you want to rent accommodation for a month but haven't found suitable apartments in your area, try coming to a guesthouse you like and negotiate a discount. Often, discounts of more than 50% can be achieved.
The situation with budget guesthouses is better in Jimbaran, Kuta, Ubud, Nusa Lembongan, or Gili Air. You can find affordable options in the city center with decent service, relatively new furniture, and a pleasant interior.
It will be more challenging to find such options in Lovina, Candidasa, or Gili Meno. You may have to either accept a higher price or tolerate minor flaws. However, we have still managed to find reasonably decent options for you.
Keep in mind that guesthouse prices may vary depending on the season.
The list includes guesthouses and apartments recommended by forum readers or those with high ratings on booking.com. Among the guesthouses for daily rent, options are selected with prices not exceeding 250,000 Indonesian Rupiah per day. Among the monthly rental options, apartments are presented with prices not exceeding 5,000,000 - 6,000,000 Indonesian Rupiah per month.
Prices are indicated at the time of writing (March 2018). Remember that hotels in booking and agoda systems constantly change their discount system, and the price shown at the time of search may vary on different days and for different users. If you regularly book accommodation through booking or agoda, they may offer you good discounts as a regular customer.
Read reviews carefully about guesthouses and apartments to consider all the pros and cons when choosing and avoid unpleasant surprises.
Please, if you have visited any of these places and found any other or newer information, write reviews. No matter how much each traveler strives for objectivity, we all have different tastes and preferences. Hotels age or, on the contrary, undergo renovation. Internet quality may improve, pools or breakfasts may appear that were not there before. Let's together supplement this topic with fresh and useful information!
We wish you to choose accommodation to your taste that will delight you and bring many pleasant and bright days!
