  Hotel Reviews

16th September 2009 - review from Marco

We had a really good time in Bukit Lawang and at Sam's GH.
Sam and his family are really nice and helpful people. The rooms are really nice with great views and an open jungle bathroom where the monkeys visited us ;-)
The restaurant serves great food, esp. the Gado Gado!
The GH is one of the closest to enter Gunung Leuser National Park.

26th August 2009 - Carla from Holland

We had a lovely stay with these lovely people. I can recommend their bungalows to everybody. Especially nice we had a room for three persons

21st August 2009 - Travis from Scottsdale USA

Sam's is absolutely beautiful and charming. Sam's has very nice
rooms with mosquito nets and outstanding views of the river and 
jungle, easy walk to center of town or to lounge by river. His 
restaurant has delicious food on a spectacular verandah overlooking
the river. But Sam himself is simply gentle and friendly and a real
asset to Bukit Lawang

30th June 2009 - Ken from Austria

Absolute recommendation. Sam, the 27 years old owner is a very gentle and kind man who also acts as a guide. He was born in Bukit Lawang, survived the flood and has great experience. Rooms are simple but comfortable, food is good and beer is cold.

3rd February 2009 - Scott from Sydney Australia

The restaurant at Sam's Bungalow serves really good food and is a great place to chill out and look over the river to the Jungle
