We were only staying overnight on our way to pulau weh so didn't see much of the town. However, we did walk up to the high street before dinner. As a white English family we were very interesting to the locals - but they were all friendly enough. Don't forget to wear long trousers or dress and long sleeves (ladies).... More

I stayed at Linda's with my wife and 10 year old son after having agreed by email that for the 3 of us it would be 400,000 rupiah per night for 2 nights for a room inside the house including breakfast. When we first arrived Linda proudly showed us her Trip Advisor certificate of excellence.She then asked about our sightseeing... More

We stayed here in late June, Linda arranged to have us picked up from the airport by Frerdo her driver and show us around Banda Aceh. Frerdo spoke good English and was very helpful. Linda is a warm and friendly host, her home is very comfortable , she is an excellent cook, and tries very hard to make your stay... More

Given the great reviews we had read, we - 2 couples including one with a child - were ready for a treat. Unlike other people who rave about this guest-house, we found it not that friendly at all and disappointing altogether. I agree that decoration is a matter of taste, it was not ours for sure. The house is rather... More

I just went to Banda Aceh in Aceh, Indonesia for the first time. I found Linda's Homestay on the internet and read the reviews and looked at the pictures. I called Linda and she had a room available for me, traveling alone, and said she could meet me at the airport. When I met her, I was so delighted to... More

From all accounts, I would skip the hotels in Banda Aceh and go for a home stay. We arranged one night here on our way to Pulau Weh and Linda was waiting for us at the airport when we arrived, cooked a wonderful Aceh-style dinner for us and drove us to the ferry terminal the next morning. Her 6 clean... More

I chose Banda Aceh as my first destination in Indonesia as I wanted to get a true impression of the Indonesian people (rather than a popular tourist site or a huge impersonal city). Nowhere could have been better than staying with a local family and no host could have been more hospitable than Linda. I really appreciated her guidance around... More
