      Simple place but cheap. Food is okay but better outside. Staff is wonderful especially Anna who made me feel at home. Nice place to meet other travellers or to play a game of pingpong or Pool. You can jump into the Lake for a refreshing swim.

      The most beautiful setting right on the lake. Comfortable reasonable value rooms and nice restaurant. Sun beds and easy access to lake, right in the village with shops and lots of places to eat.
      Can be noisy at night, Malay and Indonesian families do not keep their children quiet as Europeans do so 6;00 am start is not unusual,,,also the hotel does attract young bag packers who want to jump in the lake and party at 3;00 am !!!
      eat at bamboo, great value.
      don't bother to buy your transport back to medan in advance, just get early ferry and take pot luck. We booked and still waited 1 1/2 hours...

      Decent room with hot water. However even the nicest room didnt have a/c OR a fan! So it got a bit warm at times. Nice views

      Good views. Good food. The staff are friendly and made us feel welcome. Great spot top hang out in the evening with live performances from local bands with local music (and western).
      Rooms are comfy. Budgets for all.

      A travel blog entry by sw19mike on Mar 03, 2014

      Today is the day to explore the "mainland". That's what we now call the bulk of Samosir Island, away from the TukTuk carbuncle.
      Once up, scrubbed and dressed, I ask in reception for some more loo paper for our room, and when I take it back, I look at the wrapping in disbelief: "Romantic 2-ply toilet tissue"! All the times I spent in Japan many …

      What a noisy place!

      A travel blog entry by sw19mike on Mar 02, 2014

      We all met up in the dining room for breakfast. There is a massive extension being built on to the hotel, and we had been warned by some other travellers on the ferry over from Parapat that sometimes the noise was really bad. But Eric had assured us that it wasn't true. Well, at 8 o'clock the score was Other Traveller 1, Eric 0. We sat there in …

      A good night's sleep (didn't manage to watch House of Cards), and up early to sit on the porch, looking over the garden to the 'ocean'. Lots of brown bodies leaping into the water with shrieks of happiness, and lots more with fishing rods, pulling out the occasional fish, but not very big.
      Today is market day in Tomok, another village on …

      All photos are at From Berastagi, I rode 3 mini-vans to the port town of Parapat. From Parapat, I would jump on a ferry and leave the next morning to Tuk Tuk, a small town on Samosir Island in the middle of Lake Toba. Of note, Indonesia has an alarming rate of man made destruction of their forests and there a...

      Lazing at the lake

      The day following the trek we were back on another rickety old bus, bumping and weaving our way back down Sumatra. Yan sat happily beside us, having decided it would be best if he escorted us down to Lake Toba, even though we insisted we'd be fine. "Oh I'd like to, now that I feel we are friends bla bla bla". We've definitely heard that one befo...
