We stayed in Bukit Lawang for a week. Our group stayed at the neighboring Ecolodge, but we ate at Batu Mandi as often as we could. Their food is great, and their service is natural, homey and very warm, unlike the commercial service we got at our hotel. After a few visits, we decided to move into Batu Mandi. Rooms... More

If I could transport myself back there right now I so would! This is the most peaceful place you will find in Bukit Lawang. Away from the main tourist drag...although nothing is really that far away and the walk into town through the woods and nature trail is in itself beautiful. They have the most beautifully kept and enormous garden... More

I was lucky having the chance to stay in Batu Mandi. Staff is kind, lovely, unforgettable. Rooms are clean with comfortable beds and mosquitoe nets. Toilettes are clean, big and western style. It all surrounded by a beautiful garden they built themselves. I have to mention the excellent dishes you can taste there. Both menu and rooms at a low... More

Batu Mandi has an excellent location 150 mtrs from the bohorok river. Each room has a nice hammock in front of your room, nice garden and its quiet comparing to other guest houses. And it... More

On top of that it's great value for money and the staff are super friendly. The rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. The food in the restaurant is also pretty good. What more could you want. I've attached a few photos.

We found the best chips in South East Asia here! The rooms were basic but very clean and set in a beautiful garden in a quiet area by the river and close to the bat cave. I would highly recommend staying here and booking a tour with Udin (a nephew of the owner).
