No offence to the staff, but the owner is lazy and not willing to spend any money on this dump. Cant find anything good to say about it. Dirty room, threadbare sheets, towel almost a rag, curtains filthy, even the rubbish bin was sticky and disgusting - must be as old as the hotel. I guess he cant control the... More

We have been staying one night in this hotel, in the standard room. The room was OK, not great, looking out over a dirty roof. The worst part is - I have left covered in bedbugs - not recommendable at all!

I very much enjoyed my time at Orchid Hotel. The staff there are incredible - they offer kind service and are interested, interesting and attentive. Roni is a fantastic, funny guide who will show you whichever side of Sumatra you'd like. Ang is extremely helpful and wonderful to spend time with. Moli is sweet and will beat you to the... More

We stayed in Orchid for one night in August 2014. It's centrally located in Bukittinggi, so it's perfect for going round the town, although it is near the mosque, so you might wake up at 5AM because of the prayers. The room was reasonably clean (no bedbugs in it), with European toilet and hot water, so the price was appropriate.... More

Got a confirmation the day before that I've got a economy room with own shower. But when I turned up, the only room they had left was on the top floor with the staff who I also had to share bathroom with(squat toilet and a bowl of water for showering) home made walls too, so you could hear EVERYTHING through...

Awefull place and horrible staff members! We had 3 different rooms and all had bedbugs. We told the staff and they didn't care and just told us to leave. They knew about their problem but just ignore it. Besides that, the showers are really old and dirty and it's located next to the mosque so you will hear loud prayings... More

The Orchid Hotel is centrally located in Bukittinggi, Indonesia. One of the best attractions of the hotel is CV. Roni's Tour and Travel. Roni Putra leads tours to most of the attractions in and around the area. Motor bike rental are available on site, the way to get around town for sure. The staff of the hotel are friendly and...

Our stay at Orchid hostel was agreeable and the room with the hot shower very nice for its price. But especially the tours offered made our trip special: Our guide, Das Rau, was very knowledgeable, took us safely to the most beautiful spots and told us many interesting stories about the villagers, their industries, matrilinearity and other aspects of West...

Arrived late at night in Bukittinggi in the holiday season, and this place was the only place with rooms at 10pm. 120,000 a night for a double, cold water and squat toilets. Breakfast included. Staff very friendly and helpful. The 4am loudspeaker prayers are very very loud here, take some ear plugs!!

Good choice with helpful staff. Makes it a very good way to get info ahead of planning your own activities. Useful if you want guides for anything, but watch for the extras! Very clean hotel and good price for the area.
