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

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

The perfect place to get away from the smog, noise and traffic in Medan. The rooms are clean and luxurious compared to other North Sumatra hotels/guest houses (air con and hot water!) and the gardens are lush. Expect to pay more but worth it to be able to escape the heat and chaos for a night.

We used this charming hotel in Medan as a base for a five-day round trip to Lake Toba and Berastagi. We stayed in the honeymoon suite, with its own excellent bathroom and a lovely high bed (although we found the pillows a bit small and hard). Diana (of Trijaya Tours) organised our travel in a comfortable car, with a reliable,... More

I had Juli from the hotel to arrange driver and tranportation to Lake Toba and back. It was a great trip and my family enjoyed it very much. Our last day in Medan was at this hotel and the children enjoyed a relaxing swim and later had a good dinner in the room. Food was tasty and nice.

We took the honey moon suite which was only a year old and wasn't that much more. Very clean and comfortable. Loved the hotel and the people who work there. All so helpful and lovely. We organised a tour through Trijaya Travel and they work out of the Hotel Deli River. Juli organised our trip to Bukit Lawang to see... More

We wanted to combine a Lake Toba/Bukit Lawang hoilday with a short stopover in Medan and Hotel Deli River fitted the bill perfectly. The owners could not have been more hospitable and helpful. They arranged the full itinerary for us together with an excellent tour guide Deny who went out of his way to make the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable.... More

We returned to Deli River for the second time because we already appreciated the beauty of it and the very kind and accurate service we experienced the first time. We enjoyed our stay this time for hundred percent again. Assets of Deli River are in particular the green and beautiful environment, the comfortable rooms, the quietness and last but not... More
