After a six hour bustrip the motordriver from this accomodation was waiting for us at the 'busstation'. He brought us to the Garden Inn where we made a reservation one day before.

I can only highly recommend Garden Inn for your stay in Bukit Lawang. I have been taken care of by the staff from the minute I landed and guided perfectly through the bus maze to Bukit Lawang. The accommodation is great, when you’re lucky, you even have a few frogs, geckos, and monkeys around you while you are relaxing in... More

A very peaceful and friendly place on the edge of the jungle forest. Food was also great and we loved the tour into Gunung Leuser with them, saw 6 different types of monkeys and 7 urang utans in just a one day trek. Very recommended for everyone :-)

Garden Inn is one cozy, friendly, relaxing place! The rooms have a real jungle flair and the restaurant area is great to just sit down and read a book for hours. Be aware that you are almost in the middle of jungle, so no wifi or hot shower and poor electricity here. But don't come to Bukit Lawang in general... More

We stayed there for a couple of nights. It is a pretty nice place and the owner was pretty nice. The rooms were OK, good but nothing fancy. It has a nice garden with a nice view on the river. Just be careful to close the door and windows of your room (due to monkeys, but as for most housings... More
