The 15 Most Convenient 3-star Hotels in Bali starting from $10 per night
You don’t have to spend thousands on luxury hotels or resorts to get a fantastic stay in Bali.
3-star hotels provide a good alternative for many travellers due to their convenient cost/quality and accessibility.
In terms of furniture, you can usually expect to have couches, at least one comfortable chair, a desk and a closet, more than enough to use a laptop or just watch some TV with cable packages.
Facilities like free Wi-Fi, fitness centres, pools and breakfast/dining options are mainstream now so you don’t run into any risk.
I’ve ranked 15 hotels based on my personal experience and taste and I can tell you that most of these choices are extremely cheap.
Here are some budget-friendly 3-star hotels that will not only be comfortable but also provide quality service.
1. Hotel Arsa Santhi Nusa Penida
Location: Jl. Raya Toya Pakeh – Ped No.99, Ped, Kec. Nusa Penida, Kabupaten Klungkung
Starting Rate: $55/ night
Nusa Penida is an excellent place for travellers who want to get off the beaten path. It’s a small island, but there are plenty of things to do, and this is where Hotel Arsa Santhi Nusa Penida comes in.
It’s an excellent choice for those who want to experience a traditional setting and modern amenities like WiFi and room service.
The hotel is conveniently located near several popular restaurants, including Penida Colada and Warung Tu Pande, which serve delicious meals.
The island also has many natural attractions you can explore while staying at Hotel Arsa Santhi Nusa Penida.
Just outside the hotel is Peguyangan Waterfall, one of the best spots on the island for swimming or snorkelling.
If you’re looking for something less adventurous, check out Seganing Waterfall instead. I love its breathtaking deep blue view and I would recommend it to anyone, above all to photographers or people looking for Instagrammable spots.

2. Legian Paradiso Hotel
Location: Jalan Legian No. 118, Kuta 80361 Indonesia
Starting Rate: $10/ night
Whether you’re looking for a hotel close to some of the best landmarks in Kuta or want to spend time checking out the beach, Legian Paradiso Hotel is the answer.
The hotel’s location makes it easy to get around and explore the area. You can walk to the nearby Gili Gili Fastboat (0.8 miles) or Kuta Square (0.9 miles).
If you’re into Chinese food, it’s also conveniently located close to Fat Chow, Warung Lakota – Tuban, and Seafood House.
And for culture lovers, Legian Paradiso is conveniently located close to Ground Zero Monument and Dewa Ruci Statue. My favourite is the former because it’s a memorial that dignifies and commemorates the victims of the 2002 terrorist attack.
