I chose to stay at kesawan hotel purely because of its location, close to the pasar ikan (textile/batik) and food outlets. The rooms were IDR 279 000 inclusive of breakfast. The rooms were small, you can just about walk around the double bed. The bathroom was more like a closet rather than a room. And it didnt even have a... More

This hotel was the worst we've stayed in on our 5 month trip and we have stayed in hotels for much less money. There were rats in the stairwell. The hallways echoed everyone coming in yelling at 2am from the bars. I can't believe that all the locals stayed in this hotel. It is definitely a party hotel. The room... More

2nd stay over the weekend. This time stayed at most 'expensive' room that costs less than USD30 per night. Room was big equipped with one king size bed and two sofas. Toilet is big too however cleanliness can be much improved. There is hot water to shower which was good. Aircond worked perfectly fine. Best thing about the hotel was... More

Very well located in the center of Medan, close to sights and restaurants. Good room without window, even though pretty tiny, especially the bathroom without sink. Clean, Valuable price, very friendly staff.

Slept here twice, both times travelling through. Rooms are decently priced. Ask for a room without windows, or you'll be kept awake by the noise from one of the busiest streets of medan. Standard rooms have no sink. Bed is nice. Good things: the staff is really friendly and helpful. The hotel is 300m from the station, from where you... More

I know hotel rooms in Medan are expensive compared to the rest of Indonesia, so I guess I shouldn't have expected a great hotel. But this is truly a hole. The standard rooms look like prison cells, a small box without a window. There is no sink in the bathroom, so you have to use the shower to brush your... More

Less than 5 minutes walk to pajak ikan. Facing big busy street with honks all throughout the day. Room moderate with basics included (complimentary 2 bottles of water, toothpaste and brush pack, soap). Toilet a bit dirty (small with broken bidet). Didn't realize about it till came back to room after a day out around town so didn't bother to... More

Good points: close to Sun Mall and Airport Bad points: very small room and bahroom without window. Bedding is old and used. Breakfast is only a soup and coffee. 200 000rp the night is quite expensive for what you get.

I arrived in this hotel in the midnight, after a 4 hours trip from Parapat by an old minibus (after rejected by other hotel--look at my other review), and nothing I expected except hot water and good sleep. And I got it. The room is not too big, no window, with AC, but spacey enough for solo traveler like me,... More

Stayed there only for one night. Rooms are quite small (twin rooms). Very close (200-300m) to railway station and airport. Very helpful staff. Smoking in the room is allowed so it might be unpleasant to non-smokers. Breakfast was included to room price. Its local food but OK.
