Modern well located hotel
Smart, modern Grand Mirah Boutique Hotel is tucked away in a quieter street off busy Jalan Surapati, around the corner from Museum Bali.
The hotel has been owned by the same Balinese family since the 1950s, but had a total renovation in 2015. Bright, very clean, spacious rooms occupy four-storey blocks and surround a small, but pretty pool area. Tiled rooms either open to the pool, or have furnished balconies overlooking it.
Dark wooden furniture is mostly built-in which homogenises the contemporary style, however wood laminate is chipped in places which lets the look down a little. The bed base extends beyond the springy mattress, but corners are rounded, so if (when) you bump your shins there won’t be too much pain. A comfortable built-in daybed could double as an extra bed for families.
Amenities include a small flatscreen TV, minibar, tea-making facilities, free WiFi, and air-con. There’s plenty of hanging, bag-storage, and desk space too. Very clean stylish bathrooms sport hot-water rain showers. The swimming pool is large enough for a dip, but not for laps and has a shallow section for kids to splash about. The pool is surrounded on three sides with wooden decking and the fourth with lush foliage and a hanging garden which when established, will block out the neighbouring high rise. Shaded tables, chairs and sun lounges offer poolside relaxing.
Included buffet breakfast is served in the lobby-side restaurant and friendly staff happily answered all of our questions. Prices on booking sites were slightly better than the walk-in rate we were offered, so shop around first. For a quiet comfortable sleep with decent facilities and a great location, Grand Mirah Boutique Hotel is a top pick.

Sally spent twelve years leading tourists around Indonesia and Malaysia where she collected a lot of stuff. She once carried a 40kg rug overland across Java. Her house has been described as a cross between a museum and a library. Fuelled by coffee, she can often be found riding her bike or petting stray cats. Sally believes travel is the key to world peace.
