The hotel does not function efficiently. We checked in late at night. The internet was not working due to a malfunction of a floor router. I called the staff at the front desk. Someone came up later but had limited knowledge of re-setting the router. There was no hair dryer in the room. I had to call the front desk... More

This place just about does the job, it is more suited to business travellers though than families or tourists. They did not respond to email so couldn't book and we were told the family rooms were full when we arrived. Standard room was ok though but the wifi did not work in it, location pretty good close to the night... More

As I recall, I emailed from Pulau Weh to reserve a room with hot water that was a few dollars more than one with cold water. Instead they gave me a room with cold water that looked like it had been underwater when the tsunami hit as it was on the ground floor BUT attempts to rip you off is... More

The Medan hotel is horrible. 250, 000 per night? No thanks. We could see why the breakfast was free. It all looked like yesterday's dinner. The rooms looked tired and institutional. The towels and linens were clean but old. The staff were helpful, but oblivious to the general state of the place. Even if the usual clients are locals, why... More

. Had a brief look at Hotels Wistana and Prapat in the same road before we chose the best of the three-Hotel Medan It is an impersonal looking 1960's style large hotel. Staff are pleasant but not overfriendly, and most speak very limited English-but then we only speak a few words Indonesian! We booked a superior room which on entering,... More

We found this hotel after looking at the disappointing Hotel Parpat, and found the people there very helpful at our stay in jluli 2011, Room (superior) was simple and rather small but clean and with good shower and soap and shampoo for the guests.Also the price was good. The friendly lady at the desk even managed me a booking for... More

I paid 300,000 for a deluxe room with AC, hot water, and a fridge. Credit cards accepted. Professional staff. Room is big and spotless. Great location with a BNI ATM right in the parking lot and two minutes' walk to the Country Steakhouse restaurant. Excellent, filling, included Asian breakfast. One small quibble: the keycard activates the electricity, so when you're... More

I chose this hotel based on the reviews here and OK, it's not as if I had high expectations, but still, this was pretty disappointing. If this place is ranked 2nd, I am not sure what to say about the other hotels in Banda Aceh! I stayed in the "deluxe" room that cost 300K, I would be afraid to know... More
