We were deeply disappointed by our experience. First, the positives: the rooms are comfortable, the grounds are attractive, the food (when it finally arrives) is quite good. The guide (Harry) whom they arranged for our one-night trek was excellent. Now, the negatives: Wawan and Corinna, the proprietors, seemed only interested in sucking tourists dry with inflated prices and subpar services,... More

Myself and 3 others stayed here for a a few days including a jungle trek over new years eve and could not speak any more highly of every aspect of our visit. Firstly the location; nestled perfectly on top of a picturesque hill surrounded by the jungle and all the elements that make this a destination to travel to, the... More

On the Rocks is a wonderful place and the BEST option in Bukit Lawang, especially if you plan to do a jungle trek. It lies up on the hill which means you have to walk 15 Minutes straight up, but it is definitely worth the effort. From up there you have a wonderful view over the surrounded landscape and from...

Having just come from a 5* hotel in Medan, we weren't sure how this was going to compare but I can honestly say it was better! Our room was beautiful, an authentic clean and spacious hut set on stilts with a relaxing hammock looking out into the jungle. The jungle trek arranged by the hotel was one of my most... More

There are a comfy bed with mosquito net, a huge balcony with a hammock, wooden chairs and table, bathroom with toilet and shower with its tap made from a coconut :) Located atop of the rock you can experience staying...

On the rocks is a relaxed location, a little higher then the village but the view is worth the climb! The bungalows are clean and the view is magnificant! The staff is really helpfull and they have a pick-up service from Medan airport. We did a one day jungle trekking which was guided by two professional guides.

Having not made a booking, we joined up with another couple who told us about on the rocks. On arrival we were welcomed very warmly with fresh juice and help carrying our bags up the stairs. We were given all information we needed and more and decided to embark on a 2 day 1 night trek with the famous uncle... More

My husband and I stayed at On the Rocks in November 2014 and loved it! We had the bamboo room, which was simple but perfect, with a lovely view from the terrace, a comfortable bed and clean bathroom with a cold water shower and western style toilet. The guys at on the rocks were brilliant! So helpful! They sent somebody... More

It is a bit difficult to rate this place. On one hand, the location is very nice as it is just near the national park entrance. You can just walk 5 minutes and you will see some Thomas Leaf monkeys. The garden is very nice and you really feel in the nature. The stairs to get to the hotel can... More

Hello David, thank you for taking time to write a review. We already read the review of your friend "Nice location, room average". You stayed together in one of our bungalows and requested separate beds via the owner of your stay in Lake Toba. We got the booking in the same day of your arrival. We are a bit surprised... More

I stayed a couple of nights in this hotel. The stairs to reach the resort can put you off but once you reach the top the location is nice, the bungalows are surounded by nature with a peacefull atmosphere. Bungalows are very pretty with nice balconies but our room itself was very small with basic mattresses on the floor. While... More

Hello David, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. First of all we wanna clarify about our bungalow types. All our bungalows have one standard double bed. We don't offer Twin bed rooms. Your booking (via the owner of your accommodation at Lake Toba) requested two beds. That's why we placed an extra mattress on the floor.... More
