We had a room on the 2nd floor with a view to the lake. Nice clean room with attached bathroom and a balcony. As usual, if you're a trouble sleeper, bring some earplugs. Our neighbours were partying all night long, so earplugs would have helped us a lot. The restaurant was very good, so we weren't even looking where else... More

The rooms are a good size and the view of the lake was wonderful. We absolutely loved sitting on our verandah enjoying the nature and peacefulness. Within six steps we were in the lake taking a swim.....fantastic! Yes the room and bathroom is basic but quite ample for our backpacking needs and also it had a western toilet, always a... More

The Romlan is a good place, to spend some days on samosier island at lake toba. The price is fine for what is provided. The room was big and offered a very good view onto the lake from it's balkony. There were some not so clean spots, eg. an ant-trail in the bathroom... The attached restaurant provides nice dishes at... More

Simple decent rooms - clean - with lake view. Hot shower! Very friendly and helpful staff. Located in Tuktuk. Scooters can be rented from the hotel. They have a simple menu, but also plenty of places in Tuktuk where you can get food. Be aware that it gets pretty dark at night, so don't forget to bring your torch if... More

I came here with my sister in 2011 and before that too. This cottages type of rooms are nice and clean with its own view to Lake Toba no other place can feel unless you stay here. Those who can swim just jump to the lake, for me as I don't swim.. I'm telling you, this place is good to... More

We had allowed for a 5 night stay on Danau Toba. We travelled in June so had not prebooked any accommodation. Before arriving we had a short list of places to check out and Romlan was at the top of the list. The ferry dropped us off and we found a young man who showed us the available rooms. We... More

For the budget-conscious traveller, this is a good option on Samosir island. We stayed in the cheaper of their two Batak cottages for just 85,000 per night. With that price in mind, it's hard to give this guesthouse less than three stars. I saw several different options around the island, and this was definitely the nicest for that low price.... More

Communication with Marion is prompt and efficient and the price of the rooms very cheap. The upstairs rooms are much nicer with better views but are the same price as those downstairs. The comfort rooms have hot water but the bathrooms are pretty grungy and need a deep clean. Not exactly dirty but a freshen up would not go amiss.... More
