You get what you pay for. Cheap but very basic. But a good location for the market area. Probably won't go again if I have more money. Hehe. Quite near the train station and in front is a nice Dutch colonial style cafe. You can take the beca bike to go around town.

Near train station & Airport Railink Service Terminal. very convenient if you travel by train. Tip-top Restaurant, which is very popular among the locals, is directly opposite the hotel. The downside is that there is no washing basin in the room, which is very weird, even to most Asian's standard!

Actually it began since the very beginning. First they want to charge me for breakfast (which was already included in the room rate), second they said they do not accept credit cards and after i showed the opposite information about the possible methods of payment indicated in my booking, they managed to accept credit card payment. Early in the morning... More

Room was good, it's clean and comfort enough even though the bathroom is quite small and interne somehow didn't work properly but still, the hotel's staffs is very helpful. Fortunately, on my second experienced I got... More

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

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.
