Food was simply amazing. As the owner of Romlan Guesthouse was German, the German-influenced food with a touch of local flavour was fantastic. The view overlooking the clear blue waters of the lake was breathtaking. Stay at the Deluxe Batakhouse for only 135,000 per night.

AVOID THIS PLACE! I was enjoying a trip in Indonesia and this place was a serious buzzkill. The only good things about this place were it's front of house person who was at the desk, and how close it was to other places we could eat and spend time in to get away from here. Some suggestions for improvement for... More

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
