This was my second time staying at Mega Inn. The first time was 7 years ago, when they had just started the place. Back then I had the most amazing time of my entire trip. Sleeping in a simple cottage in the jungle, jungle sounds all around, only 6 rooms, super friendly and happy staff (Mega himself went out of...

stayed there for 2 nights. Food and Drinks are quite good, 4 out of 5 I'd say. But it takes them long to prepare the food. So order before the hunger gets real. The 2 boys running the hotel are also really nice. But the rooms are below OK. 1 out of 5. Dirty, smelly and only 1 power outlet,...

The hotel lies across the river. Do not take a suitcase, but use a backpack. It is a simple hotel. We had a shower, but only with cold water. (that is not a problem because it is warm enough). There is a bed with a klamboe and a fan. But what a beautiful place! A terrace with a view on...

The 100,000Rp rooms overlooking the river are really nice and peaceful. You access Mega Inn across a suspension bridge. I walked around back into the jungle and there are nice guest houses there too. But this has better access to the elephants and 'town'. Some nice small restaurants to eat there too

We were told by our tour company the Mega Inn was simple. We do simple, we do basic in fact we have backpacked and stopped in many simple and basic places, but dirty we do not do. The towels smelled and on using them they were minging. We stayed two nights and they were never changed and the room never...

I only stayed here for 1 night as I had to get to Pulau Weh, but my bungalow was comfortable and had a great view of the river. The staff also quickly organized the elephant washing and tubing for me, so everything was smooth and I didn't encounter any problems. Really do wish I could stay longer in Tangkahan to...

We stayed with Mega for two nights in March and had a great time. Mega was really helpful in advance arranging transport for us to get to Tangkahan. His friendly driver friend Edi picked us up from Medan airport and drove us the 4 hour journey, Mega called a few times to check on us too. We stopped off in...

Got the best holiday deal in Tangkahan at Mega Inn.. Stayed 2 days in Garuda Room.. I love the overlooking view of the river while being cradled in a hammock plus hearing the bamboos sings as the wind blows.. Mega Inn has good choices of Indonesian Food and has a great deal for tubing and motorcycle rides..

We had no idea what to expect but what we got was so unexpected! Mega Inn offers an extraordinary experience in a beautiful part of the world. If you're expecting the Ritz then this is not for you but if you want a good, simple place to stay that is clean with good food and always helpful friendly staff then...

Rooms are very basic with no warm water and several times no electricity, but the friendly staff and the nice place made it worthwhile for us. The rooms close to the river are very nice but again basic, and taking a shower could be done in the river. Many activities are possible like "tubbing" Food is good but not much...
