Location was great, and the communication with Andrea was the best of any hotel owner/operator in Indonesia. Trek was arranged ahead of time via email, and was a total success. We saw wild orangutans and did the rafting down the river, along with a leech-filled trek overnight in Bukit Kencur. Green Hill and the employees were very professional and met... More

Location location location! You're as close as you can get to Bukit Lawan. Staff at the hotel were lovely. Room was ok, nice bamboo shower but a sink would be nice for toilet. We did a 2 night trip in the jungle and saw wild orangutan didn't need to see the feeding which is getting more and more expensive. The... More

We stayed here at the beginning of April'14 and had an absolutely fantastic time, thank you so much Pandi, Karim and Daddy Cool, Arif and all the others I haven't mentioned here, you were fantastic hosts. The bungalows are very basic and have lovely open-air bathrooms. When I say "basic" I mean that they have all you need while impacting... More

We enjoyed our one night stay at this guesthouse. The rooms were rustic but had great natural views that gave you the impression of sleeping in a tree house. The spring fed water source (a bit chilly!) for the showers dried up for a while but was operational again in about an hour. The meals we ate there were not... More

Dear Guest...thanks for taking the time to write a review. However...there are unfortunately quite a few issues with the points you raise about trekking. When you visit the national park you are not going on a safari or to the zoo..DO NOT sell you a trek specifically to see orangutans in the wild. I wonder did you actually book with... More

Stayed there in July for 2 nights. The place is wonderful, we had a large bungalow with a superb view from the balcony. The room is simple but OK, there is an attached bathroom in the lower floor with fresh water. Everybody there is friendly, relaxed, laughing all the time, singing and playing guitar in the evenings - makes you... More

We stayed at Green Hill in July of this year and can't say I would stay there again. We stayed in a treetop room the first two nights and were moved to a another property for the last night's stay. The treetop rooms are decent but compared to several of the other properties in BL they are seriously overpriced. The... More

Dear Guest, thank you for taking the time to write your review. However we car completely mystified as to why you did not take the time and courtesy to speak to us when you were here or to actually email us. It seems rather inequitable to directly write your review without having spoken to us first. But, you have now... More

This was our first stop in Indonesia. Best price/experience we found our whole trip. Food is great, staff is great. The first night we stayed in a big room with private bathroom; wow! (don't expect hot water out there). The next nights we stayed in a smaller room with shared bathroom, still very nice. The jungle trek is awesome. They... More

It's really hard to give a review on this hotel.. We stayed there one night, and I must say that during the day this place is absolutely charming. The restaurant offers a great view on the small river, and the staff played guitar et sang while we had dinner, which is one of the best memory we have of our... More

Dear Guest: thanks for taking the time to write a review and allowing us to respond to your points. It would appear that you really liked Green Hill but your main reasons for giving us a very low score for rooms/cleanliness/sleep quality was that you saw some bugs in your room and a 'giant' lizard. This seems a rather curious... More

Brought me to and from the bus stop for no extra charge. Very friendly people. They helped me arrange further travel plans. Seemed like a 'normal' price for the room standard. The dinners were awesome! They were the best meals I had had in a long time. Nice work! They assured me that they could arrange a trek for me... More
