We chose a room without a fan and were a bit worried about getting hot at night but there was a nice breeze through the windows at night so we didn't... More

Amazing amazing 2 days spent in Bukit Lawang, and we loved our stay at Garden Inn. Located at the end of the village near the boat crossing to the Orangutan feeding platform, and several other shops, places to stay and cafes nearby, but all the amenities you need are at Garden Inn. Food, beer and company! Frans and all the... More

My friend and I just enjoy three nights at the Garden Inn in Bukit Lawang and could not find a single thing to fault it.
