We'd recommend the Orangutan for hardy travelers. We ascended a long flight of uneven steps each day to the "sky room", where we shared the treetops with macaques. The very accommodating hotel staff carried two cups of coffee up those steps each day. You're immersed here in everything that happens in the village, where tourists come for jungle treks and staff and guides for the most part were born and raised here.

Stay Here!
We stayed at the Hotel Orangutan because of its status as a non profit organization. They dedicate a portion of their profits to preserving the orangutans and their habitat. From the minute we arrived, we were treated like family. All the staff were super friendly and helpful. Most evenings someone was in the lobby playing a guitar and singing - super chill vibe here. The hotel arranged a private day-long trek for us with guides Apri and Andra. It was an incredible experience we will never forget and our guides were knowledgeable, friendly and experienced. We asked for a challenging trek to see as many orangutans as possible and the day far exceeded our expectations! We would highly recommend the Hotel Orangutan. We were in the Sky room and had monkeys come daily to our deck. The room was huge and the condition was good - sparse, but typical of Bukit Lawang.

The room was very simple. No AC but we had fans which was fine. I was not a fan of the bathroom. It was a natural environment which was appealing but it was very smelly and dark.

6/10 Good

The hotel and it's restaurant are perfectly acceptable, but the website fails to point out that the most comfortable rooms are housed in a separate annex which is located at the top of a VERY steep slope behind the main hotel. The steps up to this annex are precipitous and totally unsuitable for the elderly, asthmatics or guests with any kind of mobility restrictions. We had no hot water throughout our 3 days there, but the staff are fun and the food is honest and tasty.
