We really liked staying at Linda's. It's a good way to get to know more about aceh. Linda is full of stories, she knows a lot about aceh, but the best thing is she tells you the stories bij heart. We did a city tour with her and it's impressive to hear her stories about the loss and everything that... More

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

When we first arrived Linda proudly showed us her Trip Advisor certificate of excellence.She then asked about our sightseeing... 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
