We ate 2 times at the Garden Inn, it was for sure nice enough to come back the second time. I would reccomend to order a indonesian dish, thats what they do best. The western food the have is acceptable, but why order something western when you in a real indonesian restaurant? The dishes are tasty indonesian food and the... More

Very welcoming (Indonesian/French) owners, very nice bungalows. Breakfast is not included but you can have good and cheap food at their restaurant. They can arrange jungle trek for you. This place is very good value, I would stay there again.

I had an incredible time staying with Garden Inn. The food was excellent and the service fantastic. The staff very quickly become your friends. That's the kind of place this is. The view from my balcony was spectacular.

Our stay at Garden Inn and in Bukit Lawang was one of the true highlights on our Indonesia tour. Before arrival we had had contact with our tour guide Baik with whom we experienced a fantastic two day trek through the jungle including the best food we had on our entire trip. Even though we had intended to stay at... More

While the journey to Bukit Lawang is not the most fun, we were immediately greeted warmly by the owner and his friendly staff, who do a great job of making you feel welcome. The location is nice because the is outside of the busy areas and there is an unobstructed view of the river with monkeys all around. Our room... More

Aside from the very wet weather my partner and I experienced during our stay we had a nice stay at Garden Inn. Our bungalow was lovely with great views over the river from the balcony. The only slight disappointment was the cold water only shower but this is the norm in Bukit Lawang. We didn't eat here as prices were... More

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
