No-frills budget joint
Jalan Pasar Inpres No. 477 T: (0643) 21 073
If you're looking for a cheap room in Takengon, you really don't have a lot of options and may unfortunately end up here at Triarga Hotel.
For 80,000 rupiah you get a square concrete box with two old beds, no more, no less. The grubby budget rooms share bathrooms, so if you want privacy, you're going to have to pay more. In the more expensive rooms you get a bit more light, a smattering of furniture, an old TV and a private bathroom with cold water bak mandi for washing and a squat toilet. It really is quite poor value as seems to be the norm in Takengon, so we'd only advise coming to this place for the cheapest rooms and only then if you're brave and/or tight on money. Otherwise the only reasonable option is Mahara Hotel.
