We stayed for 3 nights. Not long enough. We went on 2 separate treks. They were both fabulous. Our guides were professional, knowledgeable and very entertaining. The guesthouse is beautiful place, with fantastic staff. The food is very very good and the rooms are great.

We had 3 nights in Bukit Lawang. We chose Green Hill Guesthouse because of the owner Andrea who is a conservation scientist and thought we would be in good hands. What a great place. The staff were so friendly and our guides for the jungle Biak and Waldi were amazing. We are a family of two adults and two kids... More

It was so much more than what we expected and was amazing. Location couldn't be better. You are opposite the main jungle and 3 out of 4 days we saw orangutans from the tables in the guesthouse. The tour is not the cheapest in bukit lawang but for a good reason. The guides have great English and actually care about... More

Great place to base yourself to go trekking and see the orangutans. We stayed here for 6 nights and had the room at the top with great views and morning monkeys on the roof. The staff are also great with local knowledge and acoustic guitar playing. The fact th at the guides were ethically responsible was one the reasons we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Green Hill is in the heart of Bukit Lawang village, overlooking the Bohorok river with amazing views of the rainforest, easy access to Gunung Leuser National Park (GLNP) and only 10 minutes from the orangutan viewing platform. Green Hill was opened in 2008 and the new building was built by local craftsmen using a combination of wood and stones to create a very light and airy open plan space which has amazing views of the rainforest. The guest rooms at Green Hill are nestled amongst the treetops on the hill behind the restaurant: 2 double treetop bungalows (200,000 IDR), 1 triple bungalow (250,000 idr) and a chalet/family room (300,000 IDR) all have private bathrooms with bamboo shower and balconies with jungle and riverviews. There is also a budget double with a shared bathroom (100,000 idr) which is ideal for those on a budget. ... more   less
