We stayed at Eco Lodge with our two kids aged 3 and 6. Kids were amazed to see the monkeys just jumping from one branch to another right in front of our room. The place was great for kids. We woke up early to start our 3 hour trek and ended up seeing and feeding many orangutans. The important part... More

We stayed in the orangutan rooms which were booked through sunatra Eco travel who we booked our tour through. A lovely retreat whilst staying in the jungle. Beautiful rooms with fans and unique outside bathrooms. Very clean and good food. Lovely staff. No air con but I don't think there is anywhere in bukit lawang- it's the jungle after all.

This isn't the Ritz Carlton. There are no iPod docks, mood lighting or 1,000 thread count sheets. This is lodging on the edge of the Sumatran jungle. And reviews of this property should be based on that fact. There is no TV or Wifi, but the bed is comfortable. Our room was clean, although it got muddy after trekking. The... More

We stayed here for a few days, in the orangutan and butterfly cottages. First room had a tree in the bathroom! cold showers. We heard from another couple about a cockroachplague in their (butterfly)room but didn't see any ourselfves. Beautifull place with many (Thomas leaf?) monkeys. Just across one of the bridges. Special thanks to our guide in the jungle,... More

We stayed here for three nights on a trip booked through Eco travel. The trip was well organised with great guides and transfers, however the eco lodge was a disappointment. It has a great position and gardens but the rooms and buildings are tired and scruffy. Our room wasn't cleaned during our stay, although there seemed to lots of staff... More

We stayed with our 2 teenage daughters in the Orangutan Room. Ample room for all of us. Accommodation is basic but clean.we had our own bathroom but no hot water. We weren't able to get any laundry done - smelly jungle clothes as they wash no washing machines or dryers, but this was only minor and made me appreciate the... More

We loved Bukit Lawang. The people are wonderful, the lifestyle very basic but everyone was friendly, welcoming and happy. Accommodation options are limited in Bukit Lawang; this facility was provided as part of a tour we booked. And overall, we were happy. The room was basic but clean and staff accommodation. The hot water on semi-worked, and the bathroom in... More

There are not many choices of hotels in Bukit Lawang. The hotel has a potential, but our opinion is that the management should work more with the staff in training, and especially how to face complaints and problems that guests have. First I would like to say that the rooms we got in our second night (Orangotang rooms) was excellent.... More

We stayed for a total of 5 nights. First in the newer Thomas Leaf Monkey rooms. Good size room, with a semi-outdoor bathroom. There's no shower but a traditional large ceramic tub and ladle. The open-roofed bathroom is a crazy idea for the rainy season. If you intend on going to the toilet during the afternoon or evening, you will... More

This is a good intent at making a stay comfortable, but everything remains very basic. The rooms were nice, but no padding on the beds. The frogs under all furniture made a lot of noise, so that was my first task, to get them out. I had never seen frogs to leap up and down steps like these were. One... More
