Stayed here for a couple of nights, restaurant serves decent Nasi goreng and Mi goreng. The winner is the fruit juices, mango and pineapple. Service is professional and there is Nice views over the lake, but a bit empty on weekdays. Close for a swim downstairs.

Had a great stay and enjoyed the location very much, peaceful next to the lake. There are gardens and flowers all around and you can relax by the Toba Lake while enjoying the beautiful mountain view. Staff was very kind and friendly.Room was spacious with balcony facing the lake.

Stay here for 1 night. It was a nice hotel, really great atmosphere. You get a nice view of Danau Toba from the hotel. But, the room is old, cracked on the floor in the second floor (deluxe room). The bed mattress is worn out. I suggest to have a window or exhaust in the bathroom. The location is not... More

The hotel is not bad, it just old. And I wish I could spent the night in more modern hotel. The building and the furniture are old. Hot water is provided by solar cell, so in the evening and night it takes long time. It is better to choose room with hot water because it is cold there. You can... More

We stay 1 night in Hotel Carolina and paid the cheapest rooms, around Rp.100,000. We arrived around 8pm. The workers bring us to the rooms and once we open the door, surprisingly one rat just out from our rooms. That was so horrible experience for us. Other than that, the next morning, once we woke up, the view from our... More

The views when arriving were awe inspiring. You arrive by ferry and be aware everywhere has lots of steps to get up and down with the cases. Our room had a good view of the beach and the mountains. If you don't want noise do not come at the weekend. However it did not stop us sleeping as it was... More

Nice view overlooking the lake from the hotel balcony. The bed was comfy. Clean. Okay price (since you're in Samosir Island). Close to one of the pub in Samosir and they have a quite nice food served in the restaurant (Yes, its a bit pricey).
