Accommodation



Ketambe

Accommodation in Ketambe lines the main central road through Aceh which splits the two lung-shaped sections of Gunung Leuser National Park. All accommodation is basic, there is no hot water and most rooms are constructed from wood, although a few concrete structures have popped up in recent years. This is cheap accommodation at its best.

Friendship Guesthouse is one of the best options in Ketambe, with great value wooden bungalows and more comfortable concrete cottages, the likes of which are not seen elsewhere in town. Rooms are set back about 100 metres from the river and each contain spring beds and private bathrooms with Western toilet and cold-water shower. The grounds can look a little overgrown when there aren’t too many... Read our full review of Friendship Guesthouse.

The owner of this place is called Pak Mus and his family is lovely and will try and make you feel right at home with cups of ginger tea... Read our full review of Pak Mus.

A fine little spot with just a few rooms, Sadar Wisata can sometimes feel just a little unloved due to a lack of tourists. This place was THE place to be during the ’90s when they had a further 30 bungalows up on the hill which were regularly full. The same owner, Ibu Ayuni, is still in charge and her infectious smile and warm personality alone is worth coming here for. The basic wooden rooms are... Read our full review of Sadar Wisata.

Wisma Cinta Alam is a cluster of bungalows set back about 100 metres from the river at the northern end of town. The bungalows are neat and tidy with comfortable spring beds draped in mosquito nets, lovely balconies for lazing on and private bathrooms with cold-water showers and Western bucket-flush toilets. The setting here is lovely with views across the jungle-covered mountains and a lush open... Read our full review of Wisma Cinta Alam.
