We opted for Hotel Deli River as our arrival and departure hotel for our jungle expedition from Ketambe. Very friendly personal. Dutch-Indonesian couple developed this and provide their guests with a comfortable environment. Restaurant affordable and good quality. And very kind to make us a breakfast package when we had to leave at 03.00 a.m. to catch our early flight.

We booked this room on a return trip from bukit lawang. We booked because of the pool. Worst mistake! The rooms were dated and dirty sheets. We paid £54 for a room upfront but just seen them on here for £36. The food is extortionate! The day after we had eaten here we had the worst stomach cramps and d&v.... More

We have enjoyed our stay at the Deli River hotel very much. Friendly and experienced staff. The rooms are in colonial Indonesian style with an eye for detail. They are clean, cosy and functional with a lovely balcony. The small hotel is set in a wonderful garden with a beautiful pond with lotus. The pool is nice and the owners,... More

The Deli River Hotel was our first stop in Sumatra after a long flight. It was a true oasis for us. The swimming pool was perfect, the rooms were spotless, with comfortable beds, and a lovely veranda looking out on the beautiful garden. We had tasty dinners in the restaurant Omlandia. And last but not least, the staff is very... More

After a two and a half week wonderful journey through Sumatra (thankyou Nasib for all the driving) organized by Tri-Jaya tours, we finished our time in Medan at their Hotel Deli River. It is not in the center of town but further out, away from the madness of Medan traffic. We found this to be the best accommodation during our... More

30 min outside Medan, but do it - so peaceful and beautiful surroundings. The rooms are really nice, good beds and a nice bathroom. The pool and area is great And the food was really good as well. Service was superb - e.g. got a large breakfast package with us, because we left before breakfast time.

I would rate this hotel between average and very good, but there is no option for this. Hotel situated in lovely surrounds with a lovely pool which looks out over the landscape. Family room was a little crowded compared to some other places we stayed elsewhere in Sumatra for a lot less of the price (this might be just Medan... More

In all my hundreds of trips in every continent except Antarctic I have never seen a staff that work so hard to please the customer. The owner of the hotel drove me on along to join a 2-hour Hash House Harrier fun run in some of Sumatra’s jungle (the sport originated in Kuala Lumpur, Malaya in late 1930s and has... More
