We had a great stay at this guest house. The room was a good size (top floor) and had some storage space to put your clothes. The mattress was comfortable and the room was clean. Its in a good location walking distance to everything and our host were super lovely. The food here was some of the best (if not the best) we had in Sumatra (try the rendang). I loved my time here and look forward to returning one day.
We were put up at Eriono because we made a mistake with our booking at another place and the owners know each other. That was a lucky coincidence! We loved staying in the upstairs room at Eriono (they only have two in a little house separate from the family one) which is in a really good spot in Bukit Lawang: at the quiet end of town but still so close to the centre that you can easily reach plenty of other restaurants and explore the village itself. That said, we kept coming back to eat at Eriono because the food is some of the best in the village! The room is spacious with a wash basin and a separate shower (cold like almost everywhere in the village) and the bed is also very large and comfortable. There’s some shelves and a hanger for your clothes as well. The best is the private terrace you have with two comfortable chairs and a hammock. Downstairs has a deck which is a little less private. Also note that they don’t make up your room during your stay but it really isn’t necessary either as the sheet is fabulously fitted. The macaque monkeys often come by mornings and evenings but they are not aggressive. You can hear them bounding on the roof and walk along the power lines from and to your deck. Special mention: they use environmentally friendly metal straws in the restaurant instead of plastic!! They will also refill your water bottle for a small fee. I really enjoyed staying at Eriono and would recommend it to others. Only caveat: you have to be physically able to manoeuvre the winding stairs (steepish and high) up to the top level. But for anyone with average ability that shouldn’t be an issue. …
I think they have really good food here a specially the Rendang and Vegetable curry are delicious. They only cook with fresh products. And the staff is also verry friendly as wel. Eriono guesthouse in bukit Lawang
My friend and I stayed in total 3 night at Eriono's. We loved to room. It was a very clean and friendly room with a very comfortable bed suited with a good mosquito net. We also liked the bathroom very much since it had a western toilet that flushed. The people at Eriono's are super friendly and help you with everything. We felt very welcome. We hope to be back one day!
A fantastic little guesthouse run by a young couple, who are so kind, friendly and helpful. Room was large and bed was comfy. I booked transport and tours through these guys as well, and ate at their restaurant, and can’t recommend staying here enough.
