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

I came to the Garden Inn with my boyfriend and best friend in June (it's taken a bit of time to write this due to life getting hectic again!) The accommodations, staff, food, and jungle trek were amazing! I highly recommend to anyone traveling to Bukit Lawang to stay here. They came and picked us up from the airport in... 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

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
