We didn't have an advance reservation. We booked our tour the day before and it was just the transportation package. Moon and I agreed to just go with the flow and decide once we got there. We just looked for a place to stay when we arrived in Taman Negara.
We hiked uphill from the LBK Floating Restaurant (our travel agency's local office). We checked out a few but to no luck. It was either, they don't accept walk-in or there was no one around. Seriously, a guest house without a receptionist.

We walked a little more and saw Aki Chalet. At first, we couldn't see anyone manning the place too. But after a few minutes, a man approached us. He answered our inquiries and showed us the rooms.
We inquired for a fan room but he said they were not available, so we checked the A/C rooms instead. The room is very basic only with aircon. Well, what would we expect? It's the deeply forested Taman Negara. :)
|clean and green surroundings|
The entire neighborhood seems so peaceful and quiet. It is nature everywhere you look. :)
The guestroom has 2 beds which is perfect for us. It is spacious, we had a lot of room for our stuff. It also has an en suite toilet and bath. Most importantly, it is clean. We got it for RM 50 per night.
|look! we had a 3rd roomie :)|
At night, it was so quiet that you'll just hear the insects and the rain drops. Seemed like it rains there every night and it brings some visitors to your room. We had a little frog as a guest on our first night. :)
I don't have the contact info of this chalet though because we just walked-in. Sorry, I don't have the exact address or the contact number. They also don't have a website. When you arrived at the LBK Floating Restaurant, just hike up and walk towards north. You won't miss it. Still, if you want to know more - try reading their reviews in TripAdvisor.
