Its a very basic hotel with very friendly staff. They give free coffee or tea and bread and jam every morning. Rooms are okey to sleep but that is pretty much it. Location is very good and many food shops around. Thr rooms are near to the mosque so expect some prayers early in the morning.

Average hotel with clean rooms, but nothing special about it. Weather in Bukittinggi is not so hot, due to it's higher above sea level, so in the morning it can be cold in the rooms, because in our room was also a window without glass. Hotel si also very close to mosque, so we woke up in the 4:30 a.m.... More

We stayed here for three nights and hired a scooter to go to lake mainjau and the harau valley. We arrived with the nights bus at 6 am at the hotel as our rooms where not free they gave us matrasses to sleep on for a few hours. The room is nice with hot shower and a balcony and a... More

Room was ok with 2 single beds and hot water shower which was nice in the more temperate climate of bukittinggi. Towels provided and a private deck. No chairs though. No air con though not a biggie as it is a little cooler. Breakfast was lacking, two pieces of toast and coffee while other guests seemed to also get fruit?!... More

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!

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
