Samosir Cottages Tuk Tuk Reviews
Great Value Accomodation Jan 17, 2013
On arriving at Parapat from Bukit Lawang, Samosir Cottages had their staff waiting ready to give people discounted accommodation. They came very prepared with photos of the cottages and upon taking a small deposit, provided us with a voucher to show check in staff on our arrival. I was particuarly impressed at their level of commitment in getting people into their accommodation at what was clearly a very quiet time of year for them.
My partner and I stayed in a comfort room which had a private bathroom with hot water and a private balcony with views of the lake. This room is advertised at 175,000 IDR per night however we only paid 150,000 IDR per night. It was very cheap considering the quality of the rooms.
The room was clean, bed comfortable and the bathroom was adequate considering the price. I really liked the private balcony, it was good to get a few cans of Bintang and sit there with some music in the afternoon.
The hotel itself had a few computers with internet access which wasn't free. There was also a restaurant/bar area which was open for breakfast/lunch and dinner. Breakfast wasn't free however it was quite cheap and there was plenty of choice. One night they put on a show of traditional Batak music and dance which was very good.
The location is good, just walk out the door and you get restaurants and bars, all very good quality. Unfortunately we were there in January, quiet season so there wasn't many tourists about.
