Hotel located on hill top, able to view Lake Toba and surrounding area. Stayed in Annex building therefore does not have view to the poolside. In general facilities are OK

The buses are old and the drivers take too many risks trying to save time. So it took a bus back to Medan for perhaps 3 hours from Bukit Lawang, then another bus to Parapat which we reached at night, too late ...
