When we started searching for one of the many Kuta Bali hotels our list of criterion was very clear. This time, our trip was all business. It was a short stay; we needed to squeeze in several appointments and the location mattered the most. We wanted a hotel that was literally 5 minutes from the airport for quick check in.
We are a bit spoiled and always want to have the perks of a nice hotel at an economical price. We also needed something that was just out of traffic congested areas so we could get in and out easily. First we thought this to be an almost impossible condition, until we spotted Harris Hotel Tuban. Being in a practically located business location is why we picked this hotel.
happened in the street could be experienced in the lobby. The hotel was that
close to the road and it was on the bend. Road noise was apparent up until the
restaurant. The hotel is smart to give a welcome drink to get your mind off
lighting was not the shocker, the interesting architecture of this hotel is
that the lobby, bar, lounge, restaurant are all meshed into one space. A smart
way to use space and it is multi functional. I thought "Is this it?" Yup, they did the breakfast buffet, restaurant operations, bar and lobby lounge
in an area the size of a garage for 4 cars. Not a luxury hotel for sure, but
service became quick, efficient and snappy.
The service staff did have trouble conversing in English but besides that they pulled an exceptional job. Very small team but they keep the standards of a Harris hotel.
Harris hotel is known for its quirky interior and highlight, bits and bobs like
orange hotel flip flops and green details here and there are nice eye candy.
The rooms are what you would expect from a business hotel but the quaint small,
well designed pool is what stands out.
The pool in this hotel is small and squeezed into the center of the hotel like many other accommodations in Bali today. This pool though has a very tropical feel to it. The few n very cleverly chosen and strategically placed plants give it a Balinese feel. Very well done!
access in and out of Tuban fast is what I really liked of this hotel. This is the
hotel where you'll not get stuck in traffic to get in or out of the hotel.
Yes, the small budget hotel that holds its service standard for quick footed business people. If I were pressed for time to get things done in the Kuta, Denpasar and Nusa Dua area on a budget, Harris Tuban is the hotel I'd pick from all the Kuta Bali hotels.
