Garden Inn: Bukit Lawang accomodation

This was a fancy place to stay compared to the much cheaper options there were. It worked out to be a total of $10 a night for two people (yes, thats all together, not each :) and we got a gorgeous cottage with a balcony, double bed, our own bathroom and shower. The hotel staff was friendly and didn't harass me nearly as much as other Sumatran men do. Their English is fairly good and they can tell you a lot about things to do in the area. The food is good as well, we ate all our meals at the Garden Inn restaurant. By the way, you don't need to stay here to eat at the restaurant. Several people used to come just to eat drink and hang out and enjoy the view of the jungle.

Wild monkeys used to come and sit on our balcony, peek in at us through the windows in the morning, it was an amazing thing to wake up to :) Note that this hotel warns you to keep your doors/windows closed as the monkeys will try to get in, especially if they smell food.
