Finding a quiet guesthouse in Senggigi, away from the mosqueI've read that one should try to book accomnodation away from the mosque in Senggigi, in order to not get woken up by the call to prayer, but where is the mosque? It doesn't seem to be listed on maps, so I can't work out where to go in order to not be next to it... Or will I wake up to it whereever I am?
Thanks for any replies!

1I stay at Pondok Siti Hawa Backpackers. It's 4km south of the Post Office, on the right-hand side of the road as you head back towards Ampenam ie it's between the road and the beach. In fact the beach abuts the bottom of Siti's luxuriant garden - walk through the garden and there's the beach just metres away. Staring at you from across the water, Bali's Gunung Agung keeps a watchful eye on comings and goings of the day.
Siti is an excellent cook and host. Son Rizal speaks perfect.English and would be able to arrange transport for you should you wish to go into town. The accomodation is comfortable, not ritzy - there are a variety of rooms. This is a very relaxing place to stay. I don't recall any mosques nearby

2There are 2 mosques in Senggigi. Where ever you stay in central Senggigi you'll hear the prayer calls. They are both situated up a small street from Jalan Raya Senggigi. Must say that the mosques arn't the biggest problems these days, live music from Happys, Papaya and some of the new establishments are much worse. They keep on playing LOUD music from 8 pm until 3-4 am every night. A prayer call at 5 am is nothing compared to that.
