We had a great stay here. The location is at the far back of Bukit Lawang, which in general housed the more luxurious guesthouses. We had some memorable nights with some locals and tourists that we we're lucky to meet at the lounge area. We took the guided tour with "Bike" wich is a crazy funny dude that knows alot... More

Although it's basic it's in the middle of the jungle so it was what I was expecting. Our room had a beautiful balcony with a hammock with a gorgeous view over the river and across to the jungle where we spotted an orang-utan one morning. The food in the restaurant was nice and the staff were very helpful.

It is definately nothing special, our room was quite dark and there was sand in the bed. We have been there two days later after the jungle trek again and the room has not been cleaned in the meantime. The staff is very friendly though. If you book tickets for the tourist bus at the reception, there will be no... More

We stayed in the upper rooms which were basic and nice at the Same time. The view from the balcony is increadable, we even saw Orang Utans from there. The staff was very friendly and funny, a familiary atmosphere. The food is tasty. I prefered the Green pancakes for breakfast. We first arranged our jungle trek with Baik (baikgirsang@gmail.com). He... More

Don't get me wrong it is basic, but thats exactly what we were after. The garden inn ticks so many boxes, from the taste of the food to the warm staff. A real gem of a find from my friend. They were very helpful in arranging a 2day trek the morning after we arrived... be sure to ask for Sinar... More

Love garden inn. The perfect room surrounded by beautiful views of the jungle and river. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The food and menu choice is fantastic. My only t of concern is make sure you lock up all your belonging because the monkeys have a habit of trying to break into room and going through things.

Very nice staff, good food, on the way to the "free trekking" to see Ourang Outan at the end of the path (45min.) Back to Nature where you can have a drink or snack. High and close to the river, the rooms are large, unique, clean and comfortable! The owner speaks very good French, Merci beaucoup!

This place is a lovely choice in bukit lawang. We ended up moving here from another place -green hill - as we didn't like their room. This was an amazing upgrade for essentially the same price! Lovely owner - he is so nice - and he arranged for us to use Sinar as a guide while is amazing. Located at... More
