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.

Very average budget hotel. Nice and helpful staff. Had a room on the second floor and it was rather small but somewhat clean, decent and it was great to see a proper Western toilet after days of perusing the squat toilets. The hot water was a nice touch too after all the cold showers in North Sumatra. The only con... More

The main floor was reasonably well presented, but the room was filthy, and the bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in ten years. The furnishings were also 30 years old. I guess you get what you pay for. The beer was cold however, and the owner is a pleasant fellow. Oh, the hot water does work. And another thing.... More

We've been looking around a lot, and ended up in Orchid Hotel. This is indeed the best and cheapest option if you want hot water (and it can be important to have it) and decent rooms. These have no charm and the "indonesian toilets" are what they are, but it really fulfill your needs. Wifi only works in the lobby.... More
