Accommodation in Sumatra

Posted by lumbanraja on 1/4/2013 at 04:44

Hi everyone,

I'm planing a Sumatra round trip with a friend for June. We're planning to start in Aceh (P. Weh) and therefrom moving southwards. At Weh we wonna stay in Ipoh for a few days. The next would be Bukit Lawang. I was there already 10 Years ago, but I've heared after the flood it has changed a bit there.
Is there any reccomendation for some nice rooms or bungalows there? I love it a bit rustic and wooden...

After that, we're planning to go to Lake Toba for a week or so. I've found that hotel on the web: http://www.tuktuktimbul.com
It looks nice so far, but has anyone been there before and state me his experience?

After that, we're heading for Bukittinggi and Lake Maninjau. Here we'd like to stay at Bayua Beach Inn, if it is still a good option these days...

Tanxx for your help

Chris

THINK! At least state budget or what type of accomm you aim for.
In these regions tourists are very, very few indeed and MOST (at least 80-90%) of the cheap/budget accomm is NOT online. You simply go there and see whats there. Places may have closed-moved-renamed or wahtever.Save all that time perusing online searching for non-existent links and also quell that enormous fear that any youngee nowadays seems to have- YES there will be room.
If those places are gone down the slope, there will certainly be an alternative just round the corner.
