I stayed at this hotel twice within a week at the beginning & end of a group tour. The staff at the hotel were accommodating in that I arrived at 10am and they gave me my room straight away and gave me a room at the back of the hotel because I asked for a quiet room so I could... More

The building is ugly, the swimming pool is in the middle of a concret mess, the view from the room on this pool was depressing. The place stinks of cigarettes' smoke. The staff was unfriendly. The room itself was up to standard and the breakfast was okay. But still no reason to ever return

This hotel is highly overrated. I have travelled throughout south east Asia, and even by those standards, this hotel is bad. The smell of smoke is pervasive through the hotel; and having one piece of a floor as non smoking is ineffective. The rooms are rancid with smoke, water damage, the bedding is stained, the hallways are filthy. I do... More

Prior to our arrival, we've read the reviews about the smoking problem there but fortunately it was not as bad. Location **** There's many shops nearby namely, a tasty Ayam Penyet Restaurant just opposite, Indomart just a few shops next to the hotel and a shopping mall with McDonald just 10minutes walk away. Central Park just opposite the mall. Cleanliness... More

We stayed here on our last night at Medan and we were impressed with the front lobby. But as soon as we checked in, they didnt provide the triple room we requested during reservation. I had to call twice and only after dinner they sent in extra bed which was already cramped in the small room. The shower was so... More

Old furniture, old carpets and smell of smoke everywhere. The rooms are very noisy, from the nearby mosque (it goes on and on for long periods of time) and from the traffic outside. The food is poor, except the breakfast witch is ok. The bar does not have any alcohol, not even a beer. They have live music of karaoke... More

This is a basic 80s looking hotel that provides minimal facilities. We stayed here for the last night of our trip and found the hotel to be very noisy and busy with people. Room was very basic, simple and somewhat clean for Medan's standard. Smell of cigarettes were apparent and untolerable in our room. Expect noise from the heavy traffic... More

I stayed here on the first and last night of a group tour. On arrival, they had no record of the group tour booking and I had to ring the head office on my own mobile to double check. Turns out the list was right behind the desk. Just what you want after a long journey. Room was very small,... More
