Located at the entrance to Bukit Lawang across the river from Rindu Alam Hotel, Ecolodge is one of those popular places that was once the premiere place in town, but now has its work cut out to keep up with the competition as it ages.

Rooms are variable in quality. Butterfly rooms are made with loads of wood and have tiny windows, making them feel dark and pokey; Thomas Leaf Monkey rooms are made of concrete and grab great natural light, with fantastic outdoor cold-water bathrooms boasting jungle-style bak mandi and Western toilets -- the best we’ve seen in Bukit Lawang. The restaurant is a class above the rest in Bukit Lawang, but you do pay a premium for it with some dishes costing more than 100,000 rupiah. This is a good choice for travellers wanting a little more comfort and willing to pay for it. WiFi is available in the restaurant.
