I recently stayed at Lloyd’s Inn Bali while I was in Bali. The hotel caught my eye when I was browsing through photos on Agoda when I was searching for hotels. It certainly does stand out. The hotel design is not your typical Balinese design, but it features modern architecture and Scandinavian design.
And as a solo traveller, I am always careful with my budget. I tend to stay in budget accommodations like hostels and Airbnb. Sometimes if there is a beautiful design hotel, I would consider splurging for one night or two. And I’m glad I did just that and stayed at Lloyd’s Inn Bai because it is something I can afford as a solo traveller!
I loved staying at Lloyd’s Inn Bali. I loved it so much that I want to write a hotel review post about the boutique hotel in Bali and share my experience with you.
So if you are thinking of travelling to Bali, Indonesia, make sure to check out Lloyd’s Inn Bali in Seminyak. It is one of the most affordable boutique hotels in Bali, Indonesia.

Lloyd’s Inn Bali
Address: Jalan Arjuna (Double Six Street), Seminyak, Indonesia
Lloyd’s Inn Bali is one of the best affordable boutique hotels in Seminyak. If you want to stay in a modern and contemporary accommodation and not pay too much for it, then you really have to check out Lloyd’s Inn Bali.
The boutique hotel has 101 rooms, and it has a mix of modern materials like concrete and tiles to highlight the minimalistic space. The juxtaposition of nature and modern architecture can be seen throughout the premise. The overall atmosphere is peaceful, serene and relaxing.
One of the advantages of staying in a boutique hotel is the attention to details and personalized touches. Lloyd’s Inn Bali has thoughtful guest rooms where it has everything you need for a short term stay. From bathrobes, slippers, all the toiletries to personalizing the welcome message on the tv home screen, the people at Lloyd’s Inn Bali thought of everything that you might want while you are there.
I would consider Lloyd’s Inn Bali as one of the best budget hotels in Seminyak, Bali because for what you pay for (which isn’t a whole lot), you get a very comfortable room, the use of all the hotel amenities and the overall experience of staying at a boutique hotel.
Lloyd’s Inn Bali Location
Located in Seminyak, Lloyd’s Inn Bali is tucked away in a small street off Double Six Street. It might be confusing to find the hotel, but you can use Google Maps to find the exact location.
The hotel is within walking distance to Double Six Beach where it is one of the best beaches to learn surfing. And there are many beachfront restaurants including La Plancha, a casual restaurant on Double Six Beach with colourful beanbags and umbrellas.
Double Six Street is full of restaurants, cafes and retail stores selling clothes, souvenirs and other trinkets. Restaurants in the area but are also very touristy. However, if you have a chance to try one of the local restaurants, usually they are called warung, which means family-owned restaurants.
Moreover, Lloyd’s Inn Bali is only 8km away from Ngurah Rai International Airport. It takes about 30 minutes from the airport to the hotel and costs about IDR 200,000.

Lloyd’s Inn Bali Guest Rooms
At Lloyd’s Inn Bali, there are seven types of guest rooms. From the Standard Room to the most luxurious Big Garden Room, there will be one that will suit your budget.
As for me, I stayed in Standard Room, which is a basic room with all the essentials including a queen bed, full bathroom and a working area. The room has a wall-mounted Samsung tv, an open closet, and an outdoor space that is purely for decoration only.
What drew me to Lloyd’s Inn Bali is the design. The minimalistic design and the uses of concrete and grey finishes are all over the hotel. And the overall colour palette for the interior is light and feels very Scandinavian.

The Garden Restaurant & The Garden Bar
The Garden Restaurant and The Garden Bar are both on the main level of the hotel.
The restaurant serves a complimentary breakfast every morning. For breakfast, you can choose between four choices between 7:30 to 10:00 am.
Set A is the Asian option which includes mie ayam (chicken noodles) while Set B is the western option where you get a continental breakfast which includes white toast, egg, sauteed mushrooms, baked beans, and bacon or sausage. Set C is a beef masala sandwich. And Set D is a banana pineapple smoothie bowl.
On top of selecting a set, there is a buffet area where you can take fruits, pastries and coffee and tea. You can go back for seconds, or thirds, etc.
All-day dining is available from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm. There is even an afternoon tea from 2:00 to 6:00 pm.
The Garden Bar is open from 4:00 to 11:00 pm. Various types of seats surround the bar area including several swings.

On the second level at Lloyd’s, there is a long linear aqua outdoor swimming pool wedged between grey concrete walls. The 1.2-meter lap pool extensions the length of the hotel where you will also find a jacuzzi at the end.
On the edge of one side of the pool, water hammocks are placed right at the level of the water where you can sit and enjoy the coolness of the water. There are also several other kinds of loungers by the pool.
The Canopy Spa
The concept for Canopy Spa is about a nature spa overlooking the central garden. It is a private space away from the crowd and tucked away on the 5th floor of the hotel.
However, as of February 2019, The Canopy Spa is not ready yet. It is currently being constructed.
The Hide Out
Right next to the swimming pool is where you will find The Hide Out, another amenity space. It is a space for lounging, yoga and other leisurely activities. The space also has a pantry.
However, as of February 2019, The Hide Out is not quite ready yet. Lloyd’s Inn Bali is still going through a bit of construction.
The common area is welcoming and unique. The pods (pictured above) are part of The Garden Cafe is in the middle of the hotel with lush green plants growing against the modern materials. The use of modern materials and finishes is one of the features of the hotel. Different tones of grey in tiles and concrete can be seen.
Also, the Sky Bridge is an architectural feature of the hotel. The bridge creates an exciting pathway that was physically connecting guest rooms to the swimming pool on the second level.
The lobby is simple but a welcoming space for guests. However, it is quite small as the lobby gets quite busy during check-out time. But I feel this is a very minor detail.
Staff at Lloyd’s Inn Bali
The staff is friendly and helpful. They are around 24/7 to help with all your inquiries. They will let you store your luggage if you have a late flight. And you can use the shower facilities if you need to.
I didn’t have too many requests, and I wasn’t about to make the staff jump through hoops so that I can see how they respond to unusual requests. Base on the few interactions I had with the check-in staff and restaurant staff, I thought they were all polite, courteous and friendly.
My overall impression
I knew I was going to love Lloyd’s Inn Bali as soon as I saw the photos on Agoda. And Lloyd’s Inn Bali didn’t disappoint. It met and exceeded every bit of my expectations. The guest room is comfortable. The interior design is totally up my alley! And the price is reasonable for a luxury boutique hotel in one of the best spots in Bali.
As a solo traveller, this is not my usual type of go-to accommodation. But from time-to-time, I like to stay at a place like Lloyd’s Inn Bali because I want to experience a bit of luxury without paying too much for it.
In Bali, boutique hotels that offer economical pricing are hard to come by. So if you want to find budget accommodation in Seminyak and want to enjoy a bit of luxury, then you must stay at Lloyd’s Inn Bali. Check out the hotel website here.
When you book Lloyd’s Inn Bali (or any other hotel), read other traveller’s reviews. I find that it is one of the most useful tools for selecting the best hotel. You can check reviews on Tripadvisor. And reviews and current rates on Agoda.
