Cold water, cockraoches, smelling toilets without flush etc. Do I need say more? If you have some money to spend, there should be better places to stay... Location was quite good though... Close to sites ('walking' distance).

Nearby the Masjid Agung area. The rooms were pretty basic with tv and shower. No window. Aircond was okay. They have a mini cafe downstairs. We only stayed there for a few hours whilst waiting for our early flight return. Cheap too so if you missed your flight or need a place just to sleep, then it is good enough.... More

Hotel resisdence located at Jalan Tengah, close to a shopping center. The room I paid IDR7000/night is so small, smelly and has no window. Many crokcoches and rat running here and there at night. I was awoke by the loud noise of prayer at 5 am in the morningas this hotel is near to Masjid Raya. No blanket and no... More

I'd say just an Indonesian basic budget hotel. Room, double bed, small table, attached bathroom, for 80000 IDR / 2 people. We were just in the top floor, part of the roof outside the rooms was kind of terrace with the possibility to sit there. The location just next to the Mesjid Raja is not ideal, however it was not...

i was stay on March 2013. my first impression for this hotel was "small". the room was small, with old bed, and the bathroom much worse. but if u only have place for transit this place was OK. the positve thing is located in the heart of city.

We stayed in this hotel in economy room and standard room. Economy room (70,000 IDR) is ok for one night, cause it's very small, so is the bathroom. Standard room (95,000 IDR) is much better, but don't expect luxury. Food in the restaurant downstairs is really good and cheap, staff helped us with Indonesian menu. Not all of them speak... More

I stayed at this hotel when I was backpacking around Indonesia, so as a traveler I am not particularly fussy. We couldn't find any hostels online for our one night stop in Medan so we booked this hotel as it said it had hot water and wifi and we were ready for a nice nights stay. Firstly, we spent over...

Okay so I'm not a picky traveller. I've stayed in some [--] without complaining but this was a step beyond. The most depressing hotel in the most depressing city. I'll start with the positives. The staff were nice. Rooms weren't as dirty as some say. Now the rest. Room smelled. A lot. Curtain rail fell down when we tried to... More
