For 75,000 the hotel itself isn't bad. The room is pretty big. It's a queen size bed, firm and the pillows aren't worn out either! It's a basic bathroom toilet and a shower head with cold water (they provide 2 towels and toilet paper which is huge!!).

There's a restaurant on site which is nice. The food was pretty good and comparable price to other place around maybe even a little bit cheaper.

It's about a 10-15 min walk to get to the water to swim. It would be a 30 or so min walk to get to the elephant bathing site. If you let them know they provide transportation there and back! Sometime you have t wait for transportation but it's better than walking. You are in the jungle so nothing is exactly close!

The down fall was having to pay to cross the bridge (10,000) to get to the hotel. It is only a one time fee during your stay, but you don't really get a choice. I just think it should be included in the price but I'm cheap! The bridge is huge and sways. Not the safest thing I've gone across, but heights are not my favorite!

Overall it's a good deal!

Peaceful guesthouse at the river bank Aug 20, 2009
Getting There:

- From Medan (Pinang Baris Terminal) : Bus Pembangunan Semesta - 15,000 IDR

Approximate 4 hrs with the last 2 hrs drive on moon surface.

- From Bukit Lawang, hire an ojek (motorcycle with driver), 2 hrs offroad through Rubber and Palm Oil Plantation – from 100,000 IDR one way

Please notes that NO ELECTRICITY in Tangkahan but power generator is available from 7pm – 11pm, Mobile phone signal is hardly to get, must stand under a tree or use the TV antenna to get the signal. (Who need to make a phone call while in a remote paradise). Definitely not a place for one who can't live without internet for couple dayz.

Mobile phone recepetion in Tangkahan in 2011 is much much better than 2 yrs ago.
Price for the ojek trip from Bukit Lawang to Tangkahan is about 150,000+ now and the trip can take up to 3 hrs these days because the jeeps going down there churn up the road in the wet season. And the smooth white stones used to fill the holes create a bit of havoc for the motor bike riders. It is really hard on the bikes.
