      Amazing stay ”

      I really enjoyed my stay in Tuk Tuk Timbul Bungalows. The bungalows are surrounded by a nice garden with all sorts of fruits trees. I slept in a traditional Batak house just in a front of the lake with an amazing vue (like all the bungalows). The food at the restaurant is really good and cheap! I recommend this place and I will come back for sure!

      The room is basic, but very clean. Hot water is available. A/C was not required because it is not hot near the lake. The accommodation provides a fantastic access to the lake, just 3 metres from your doorstep, and accessible for swimming. The view of the lake is stunning especially during the sunrise. Parking is available. Food (dinners and breakfast) are individually cooked and very tasty. All staff we encountered were very friendly.

      Location was great, clear view of sunrise and quiet area. The bungalows are a bit old and rundown. Had to borrow a fan to sleep because the room was warm at night. Not much amenities (no tv, swimming pool etc). However, staff was really friendly and nice. Good place to chill and read. Wifi is available at common areas. They have 2 friendly dogs in the compound. Food at the restaurant is freshly prepared and delicious.

      Decent accomodation”

      Tuk Tuk Timbul is a decent accommodation. The highlight of our stay was to 'live' in a traditional Batak house. The toilets are also very clean - which is a plus point for me! However, there wasn't a working bidet in the toilet and the hotel is actually located quite a distance away from the main Tuk Tuk area. If you like a secluded, quiet area, then this is the place for you.

      Budget Accommodation in a 5-star Location”

      This property offers spacious, individual bungalows with a bed, bathroom, balcony and maybe a fan, located right at the edge of beautiful Lake Toba. Sunset views beside the lake are fabulous! The Dutch owner and her staff are friendly and flexible, and the restaurant food is delicious and inexpensive. The property is a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of Tuk Tuk town - about 30 mins walk or the staff will arrange you transport - and about 10 mins walk to the smaller town of Ambarita. The only potential challenge may be individual long-stay residents who are opinionated, but harmless. If this causes you discomfort, practise avoidance.

      Quiet and relaxing place with awesome view”

      Everything was perfect. Nice, clean and spacious bungalow beside the lake. Awesome view, and beautiful sunrise. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Quite far from the city center (Tomok), but motorbike for rental is available at 100,000 Rp. In-house restaurant served reasonable priced food that taste good. Hotel fulfilled our request for twin bed too. Perfect hot/cold shower available. There is a children swimming pool that are filled with lake water, but it takes hours to fill up, so book a day early if want to use the children pool. Can swim in the lake directly if you wish, but it can go deep until more than 6 feet after about 3 meter away from the shore. Only 2 wishes: 1) please provide kettle in the room for us to make hot drink. A bit hassle to have to buy hot water from the restaurant to make a drink, as we need to go to the restaurant to do that, as no phone to call for room service. 2)Wifi is only available at the lobby/restaurant only. Good to have in the bungalow too.

      Chill out place”

      Tea and coffee making facilities in our room would have been lovely. Overall, a very nice and peaceful place to stay. A little bit out of the main part of Tuk Tuk which might not suit everybody.
