Photo of Gardena
Rooms are adequate, though tired, and we found the staff to be helpful and friendly. The location is central and a shaded garden provides some respite from the midday heat (if not the nearby call to prayer). If you can afford to spend a bit more, we’d suggest elsewhere, but at the budget end this struck us as far better value than Matahari across the road. Singles start at 120,000 rupiah, and prices run through to family rooms for 300,000 rupiah. Gardena also looks after the reservations for accommodation on Seraya Island, though they told us the island was closed for renovations when we last visited in 2014 and the new property would be considerably more upmarket.. Reservations are best made by telephone rather than email.
