Historical Traveller Reviews of Hard Rock Hotel Bali

Great Location for good price

from Staidthere
My wife, daughter, and I stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel, Kuta, on a Saturday night in February. It is located right in the center of activity with the beach across the street and Kuta Square only a short block away. We found Kuta's narrow streets too jammed with cars to be able to drive anywhere on a Saturday night, and when we returned, the hotel parking lot was full. The staff kindly gave us free valet parking. The free buffet breakfast was very good, and all of the staff were very polite and helpful. The price was extremely reasonable considering the location and facilities.

Lovely Hotel

This is really nice hotel. Nice location and friendly staffs. We love the hotel room coz it is quite clean and neat

Perfect Location Near the City

from little-bride
My partner and I went to Bali in May 2006 for the first time, and stayed at Hard Rock Hotel for 4 nights.

The “Delux Room” we stayed in was not luxurious or anything, but very simple with a nice king size bed. The room had most of the necessary things like TV, a small refrigerator, and a hair dryer. However, our only complain was about the shower. When you first turned the tab, brown colored water came out, and the water wasn’t very warm….

Although we were not so happy about the bathtub water, the hotel itself was very clean and spotless, and staffs were very kind. The outside pool was very big, which I think is perfect for couples or families with small children. Although the food they serve is a little expensive from the local restaurants, it tasted reasonably nice. There were different buffet menus every morning for breakfast at the terrace on the 2nd floor.

HRH is located in the heart of Kuta, so if you want to spend your stay quietly, HRH might not be the best choice. But there are restaurants, convenient stores, supermarket and most of the other things you need, so it would be perfect for people who wants the convenience.

Overall, HRH was very good for such a low price.

Perfect, for a couple of days

from Henkybaby
The Hard Rock hotel is in the middle of Kuta. Right in the middle. I love the location. Whenever I go to Bali I like a couple of days of Kuta to remind me why I like the peace and quiet of the other locations. I would not want to miss it. Kuta feels young and happening where everywhere else feels 40 and over. I am 40, so I like them both (still).

I have stayed at the HR three times now. I would not stay at any other hotel in Kuta. This is because of one thing: the swimming pool. Forget about everything else. The rooms are nice. The roomservice is great. It feels like a nice American hotel. Who would want that in Bali? Well: me, because of the pool! It is huge and inviting. It feels secluded, even though you are in the middel of Kuta.

Restaurants offer plenty of choice, from burgers to Indonesian food. Breakfast is nice, though not impressive. Service is excellent and security is very well take care of.

Within 3 minutes walk of the hotel you will find everything you need and don't need. From KFC, McDonalds and Starbucks to Thai Restaurants. The beach is across the street.

All in all: if you stay in Kuta and want to have some fun: stay here. Don't stay here if you want an authentic Balinese atmosphere and/or a quiet beach resort. If you want that and still be near Kuta, stay in the Legian Beach Hotel (not "the Legian", that is far more north in location and price).


from bundyone
I’ve recently (September) spent time in this fantastic hotel.

Location: The Hard Rock Hotel Bali is well located in Kuta, directly oposite the beach and in the middle of all the action!

Room: The room was very clean and even had a great balcony with a wonderful view of one the pool grounds.

Pool: The pool area is simply beautiful. There’s a number of pool bar's (swim up) with friendly service. You have to see the pool to appreciate it. Is huge with cabanas that can be hired for the day.

Staff: The staff was always helpful, courteous & smiling.

Guest mix: The majority of the guests appeared to be japanese and american with quite a few Aussies in the mix. Also, most were middle to younger of age - not very surprisingly

Food: The buffet breakfast in the STARZ restaurant was fantastic. Food in the HRC was expensive but the food was very good.

To sum it up: HRHB ROCKS! Can I recommend this hotel to other travellers? YES. Would I stay at this hotel again? You bet. Am already working on next years holiday to the HRHB.

Hard Rock Hotel Best Choice

from joanne2
Me and my two teenage sons booked this through wotif hotel discounts website. We booked for 7 nights and got an upgrade to a delux room from superior via the website. When we arrived we were given a nice room but it wasn't what we imagined - the hotel changed it at once to a similar one right outside the chill out pool which was great.

The staff were great, smiley and accommodated our every wish. The breakfast buffet which was included in the price was terrific with everything you could possibly think of on offer. We paid £457 or the seven nights which was very good. If you're going to Bali with Teenagers this is most definitely the place. Lots going on in the hotel, lots to do and a band playing every night. Security is very high here although the Hard Rock Cafe open to the public has access to the hotel and I found this the only worry as security was pretty none existent here and anyone could have wandered in through the hotel entrance side.

Kuta was the right place for the kids too and we enjoyed the surf and surfing, the great beach and the shopping. We had a driver take us around the island on a couple of days and that was around £25 for a 12 hour day - amazing!

I loved this hotel and would go back to it again next year if I could afford it! Swimming pool was the best in Bali - massive complex with cabannas, variety of eating places, good food, great entertainment and for those with young children a terrific nursery and activity programme for all ages of children. The rooms are not overly luxurious as say a Stamford but the facilities in the place are great and as I said the staff so friendly and welcoming and helpful.

One quibble I'd have would be the internet and its use. The hotel should log who uses it. My son used it and left his details on there, he received an email from someone who had used it after him and it was filthy. I reported it to the manager and I suggested they use a sign in log for anyone using it. I noticed on our last day that nothing had changed.

Apart from that though the hotel was totally brill and simply the right choice for us.

super duper funky hotel

from heijnen
we stayed a week in this hotel, it's a funky hotel, specially for our kids, it's their paradise hotel. the pool's great, the breakfast is standard but that's ok, the housekeeping was excellent, 2 thumbs 4 them, better than the front desk people. the other staff also nice, helpfully. the centrestage was great. it's a really rock n roll funky place to stay if u loves music. it's a great hotel, a mixture of art (balinesse) and modern living. our room was spacious, we booked 6 room in totally which 2 deluxe and 4 standard, but the standard room better, the bed was large and comfort.and we would be there again next year!!

3 star rooms, but very good pool area!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel from the lobby and pool area looks to be a 4 star but when you get inside you room it is quite ordinary, the rooms are very basic and plain, nothing special at all I would rate them at barely a 3 star. In the bathroom there was no amenities like soap or shampoo apart from a public toilet type dispenser located on the wall in the shower. Beds are extremely hard and pillows are very poor, when I called up for a feather pillow and power adapter to be delivered to my room they never arrived. Checkin was very slow and we was not given our room until after 3.30pm. The only good points about this property is the excellent pool area and its location right on kuta beach and very close to the main shopping, however that’s about it and found the for the price I think the service is very poor and found that you are expected to pay for everything from slipper in you room to a bale by the pool.

An oasis within Kuta

from payitforward2u
The hotel is an oasis within Kuta, free of the endless, pesty hawkers roaming the streets and beaches. You may just want stay at the hotel and relax by the breathtaking pool, similar to the one at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. The hotel is in a good location, directly across from the surf spots in Kuta and within walking distance of the shopping areas. Security seemed to be a top priority, especially since the threat of another terrorist attack was at its highest level during my visit.

The buffet breakfast, food, and drinks were excellent. Some of the people manning the front desk staff are incompetent. I wanted to extend my stay and the front desk person had me use the Internet café in the deli to enter another reservation because she did not know how to use the computer to give me the same Internet discount rate. The bed was very comfortable and room was spectacularly clean, although the toilet in my bathroom leaked water on the floor.

Great for families, but awful rooms

from domtrav
We stayed here with another family in June 2005. The hotel generally is looking a bit old and the rooms are terrible. The bed linen is faded, the bathrooms are very worn, and the room sizes are too small. We upgraded to a Family Suite which provided more space but nothing else.

BUT, the pool is absolutely FANTASTIC! The cabanas are brilliant especially if you have young kids who need a day sleep - just pull over the curtain and you can stay poolside while they sleep. There's also a good kids club.

The food was also great, and the main bar is a lot of fun at night.

The kids will love it, but strangely babysitters will not look after children under 3. I've never experienced that before.

If you want a poolside holiday with the kids, it's worth putting up with the bad rooms for - just.

Top Local Tips for Kuta

Halal Food For those muslims out there, if u stay in hard rock hotel, all of the food in the breakfast restaurant are PORK FREE, except a food at one corner of the restaurant. But, if u feel to eat outside, u could land urself at KFC, McDonald & Pizza Hut, which are 100% HALAL. If then u had enough of these restaurants and really need to eat RICE, well....take a cab to Tuban area and there are plenty of PADANG restaurant, which are HALAL and definitely SUPER TASTY!

Transfer from Airport to Hotel Airport has reliable taxi kiosk, just outside,where you pre-pay. Twice as expensive as bluebird taxi coming back, but probably half of hotel trasfer and no waiting around

Check on the car when you make an agreement with the driver. I made a mistake when I totally trust on my driver of our rental car without checking of the car before agreed to hire him. He told us it's 7 seater 'Kijang' so I thought it would be more thah enough for 4 of us. I even invited a friend that worked in Bali to join our tour to Ubud, Kintamani and Tanah Lot but when we get on it, the back seat couldnt be used, he folded it to make space for flat tyre. My husband sit infront next to the driver, and 4 of us (my 2 daughters, my friend and me) end up cramped in a small space! It's a quite a long journey and my kids fell asleep, so just imagine how unconfortable we were.
