We stayed at Hotel Deli River for 3 nights in total, 1 night before and 2 nights after our tour of North Sumatra (organised by Tri Jaya, the excellent tour operator run by the hotel’s owners). Hotel Deli River is an oasis in Medan, set in beautiful gardens around a large duck pond with a lovely swimming pool at the... More

We stayed here for one night. The bed's are great, breakfast was continental and was fine. Great hygiene and the staff was super friendly! A big plus is that it doesn't lay directly to the busy main road in Medan, so it's pretty quiet at night.

This hotel lies down a narrow lane off a busy road choked with chaotic traffic. It is laid out a bit like a compound, two 3story buildings face a pond with water lilies, opposite is the main building with 2 levels of outside seating to have your meals and in the back is a swimming pool. With dinner comes a... More

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful and well organized hotel. The hotel is managed by very friendly and helpful people and owned by leuke Dutch/ Indonesian people. It was a perfect mix between being relatively close to the city of Medan and staying in the oasis of a quiet, calm and safe environment. Our teenaged children enjoyed the... More

We stayed at the Deli River just for two nights - the first and last nights of our trip in North Sumatra. The staff is charming and welcoming, the rooms are spotlessly clean and nicely setup. In reality, the hotel is at least as good as it looks on the photos! The hotel arranged our trip from/to the airport and... More

We slept in this hotel the first and last night of our trip in Sumatra last June. It is highly recommended! What a great service, big room with a good bed, nice shower (!), great food, and what a peaceful surrounding in the busy Medan. The tour we booked through at the hotel connected travel agency Tri Jaya Travel. Again,... More

I was really excited about this hotel but it was nowhere near as good a deal for money as the Grand Aston which was more expensive but soooo much better. The hotel is Ok, clean with nice gardens, and a great pool. The beer is not so good but very nicely presented in a wee basket, food was bit weird... More

medan10, General Manager at Hotel Deli River, responded to this review

Dear guests, Thank you very much for your comment. Since we are a small scale eco-friendly family hotel with only 14 rooms we try our best to give personal service to our guests. Our hotel is not comparable to an international chain hotel with a totally different concept such as the Grand Aston. The beer we serve is Bintang Beer... More
