An old hotel. refurbished post tsunami. Booked for 2 nights. Clean. Room is spacious. Wifi is unpredictable in the room but good coverage in the lobby. Breakfast is moderate. The food choices are limited. Very close to masjid raya and there are food stalls and souvenier shops near the hotel. An atm machine is also available at the hotel.

Rooms need a update. Although pretty clean, all taps are leaking.. Bedlinnen should be clean bur because of its old age, coloured and stains in it... Beds are also old but comfortable. Not worth the price..

Centrally located, clean and very impressed with their staffs' positive attitude. Very near to many souvenir shops and restaurants. Will come again and its even suitable for those who are coming with small children.

I thot the location is awesome. There were many souvenir shops nearby and even restaurants within walking distance. If you're too lazy to walk can hire bentor that are parked outside the hotel. Breakfast buffet spread is small. In fact the choices are limited. I love the pisang cheese. And the fried rice. Delicious! We kept going for more. Room... More

Paid 330,000 Rupiah and stayed for one night. The room i stayed was 592 at the fifth floor. It was clean, of good size and had window facing the main entrance. The water pressure in the bathroom was very good and strong, however the hot water took sometime to come. The towels in my room had a few yellow stains,... More

Located in the centre of Banda Aceh the hotel has access to restaurants and is not too far from the central mosque and tsunami museum. At night the street food market is opposite For one night's sleep the room was fine. There was the faintest hint of cigarettes but this is typical of Indonesia, which does not appear to have...

The location is not that far from the Pasar Atjeh and Masjid Baiturahman. Right in front of the hotel, you can easily rent the taxi service (it is a van actually) or if you are a bit adventurous, you can take three wheel motorcycle for a tour. Most driver is local and they are willing to share their experience during... More

We just stayed for only one night here in Hotel Medan and the only reason we chose this hotel was because it seemed to be the nicest hotel in the most central part of town. We took the VVIP room and paid about IDR460,000 for one night. It was actually really clean and quite spacious so we were quite impressed.... More

Stayed here in April'14, had two rooms and both were clean, the aircon and the bathrooms worked as they should, one of the rooms had a bathroom that was almost showcase quality, so it must have been a recent refurb. Many hotels in this part of Sumatra are mere s*#!holes for a similar price (thinking of Takengon), so Hotel Medan... More
