Rena House is a family-run guesthouse in the rice fields off Jalan Bisma with a mix of low and multi-storey options – go for the new three-storey modern block which houses large spotless rooms – and keep climbing those stairs for a better view! Breezy fan-cooled tiled rooms are minimally furnished.

Photo of Rena House
Ornate bedheads and modern geometric paintings compete with a bit of a mishmash of styles, but not enough to distract you from the simply gorgeous rice field view. Freshly painted cream walls calm the room. Crisp white sheets on the comfy bed are topped by the ubiquitous towel swans. Plenty of power sockets, a bedside lamp for nighttime reading and thoughtfully placed switches step this cheapie up from the average. Basic tiled hot-water bathrooms look as though they have never been used. Spacious balconies are furnished with a wooden table and chairs. The garden is in its infancy, but is well cared for and will soon be lush.

Next door Happy Inn 2 is run by the same friendly family. Although the views are not as good, some rooms have a small kitchen — for a longer stay this may be ideal. We are told they fill up fast. Both include breakfast and free WiFi. Neither guesthouse has a pool, but the owner mentioned one could be used at a nearby hotel for 15,000 rupiah. Rates and contact details are the same. Walk-in rates are negotiable, so try your luck. Rena House is about 100 metres down a lane off Jalan Bisma. Look for the sign opposite Nick’s Pension. If you are after a room with a kitchen and slightly better facilities including a pool, Bije Suite Bisma, with better walk-in than published rates, may fit the bill.
