The emphasis was on peace and quiet rather than noise - which suits this old fogey.All in... More

Chose Romlan based on reviews from TA, and was not disappointed. One of the best 100k idr rooms I've ever had, big, clean room, good bed, hot water, with the perfect 2nd floor terrace overlooking the lake! If that wasn't enough, I thought the food was exquisite: every meal I had there was wonderfully prepared and presented. I had to... More

The room is clean, having a great lake view. The owner and the staffs are very friendly. Their foods are very delicious, and the best thing is, I can afford it all with a very comfortable room rate. Very recommended for everyone who wants to visit Toba.

Amazing views of the lake, great food and a very helpful manageress/owner who helped us by chartering our taxi back to the airport. The rooms were of adequate size, though no extras, not even soap or toilet paper are provided in the bathroom. The restaurant, open until 9:30 is not to be missed. We had to leave before 7am on...

Stayed 11 nights at Romlan. Planned a quiet break; just walk, read, swim, eat and generally relax. Romlan was perfect for this. Rooms are very simple, but exceptionally clean. Towels are provided, and possibly toilet paper though my room had none, so you need to bring (or buy) your own soap, shampoo, toothbrush, face washer, hand towel etc. What a... More

The owner and staffs there are very friendly and helpful. Clean rooms with beautiful lake view at a budget price. I was having a relaxing and peaceful moment sitting at the room balcony looking at the lake and enjoying the breeze.
