Lovely accommodation right in the heart of the jungle. Staff were friendly and welcoming, good food, cheap beer! I had a first floor double with a balcony overlooking the river and the jungle behind. Was able to watch about 20 monkeys pour out of the jungle and run up the river one morning. Thoroughly enjoyable stay.

We had organised over the internet accommodation in Juniors prior to arriving at Bukit Lawang however after the first night we decided to look in the daylight for alternative accommodation. The reason being there had been music playing all night from other accommodation up the way. I went to seek the source at 5.30 am!!! In the morning we crossed... More

I had a really nice time there. Especially the staff there is so nice and helpful! Nearly the best I had so far since I´m travelling! Also the food is very good and pretty cheap! And also the djungle-trip was perfect! Alek, our guide was really good and he knows a lot! Even there, in the middle of the jungle... More

I stayed here in late November 2013 with my sister and a mate. Was by far, one of the highlights of my trip and hands down the coolest accommodation we stayed at. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and they make it super hard to leave the place. We stayed in 2 of their rooms for 100 000 and... More

Garden Inn caught my and my fellow travelers' eye because of its lively restaurant. In the evenings, you can usually find many locals gathered, playing the guitar, having a drink, and hanging out. The food is quite good. I stayed in one of the cheapest rooms, which was still all right. Let's just say you definitely feel like you're in... More

If you are going to Bukit Lawang you simply MUST stay at Garden Inn. This place has been my highlight of 3 months travelling in SE Asia. The rooms are fantastic and ridiculously cheap. The hotel is set next to the river and has a restaurant and bar serving very good and well price food. It is also possible to... More

I stayed here for a few days in January whilst travelling around Indonesia and it is without a doubt the best place I've ever been. Bukit Lawang is a beautiful little village and the locals are so friendly. Garden Inn was a great place to stay. The staff were friendly and happy to arrange everything for us including transport and... More

We stayed at Garden Inn from the 28th of October until the 5th of November. Garden Inn is a great place to relax, play guitar/sing, enjoy the meals from the restaurant, meet the nicest locals and just hang around and enjoy the beautiful views from the rooms and the restaurant and much, much more. If you are lucky, you can... More

Stayed for three nights (with a night in the jungle in between). The room was very clean, had large bed with mosquito net and a terrace with hammock that looks out into the river and jungle. The modern wet room style bathroom had a proper shower (cold water only-but it's all you need with the heat!) and western style toilet.... More
