Hotel's Favorite
5.0 of 5 bubbles
We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Deli River. The rooms are massive, beautiful and kept clean throughout our stay. The property is amazing with lots of greenery. The main house/building has 2 big restaurant spaces (1 for breakfast and 1 for lunch/dinner) where their delicious food is served. Definitely try out the bitterballen (we had to being Dutch)!
There's also a great pool to swim in and relax by.
It is located just a little bit outside Medan so not ideal if you're there to really visit Medan (unless you're willing to get a driver), but we enjoyed it so much at the property that we didn't leave. It is however relatively close (1hr drive) to the airport so perfect if you want to relax a little before you fly.
Would highly recommend!

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel. We loved the quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Although there is a mosque in the area we were not disturbed by the prayer and had a very good sleep. The staff was very helpfull, they were kind and assisted us with everything including carrying our luggage to the room. We enjoyed the food, the swimmingpool and the green environment

I would challenge anyone to find a more serene and beautiful hotel escape in Medan. From the moment you drive into the property, you are captivated by the charm of your surroundings. It was the perfect location to commence and conclude my jungle and wildlife adventures in the jungles and surroundings of North Sumatra (which were also organised by the hotel/Tri Jaya tour and travel). It really was the perfect place to unwind and recharge after a long-haul flight, surrounded by the well-kept and manicured garden, great food, and the wonderfully attentive staff. All these made my stay at Hotel Deli River such a pleasure to travel to and spend time in Medan.

The fusion cuisine, vegetarian food options, homemade/grown breads/spreads/vegetables/spices, happy hour and freshly brewed single origin local coffee were all exceptional (especially breakfast). I was also fortunate enough to be staying on a Saturday evening where a live DJ session was also offered. It was a wonderful atmosphere and opportunity to meet some locals.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience and stay.

lovely garden, nice food, swimming pool etc. The hotel is very well situated between 2 mosques both using amplified automated electronic prayers starting at 5am. This is great - you can enjoy the prayers from the conmfort of your bed. Also quite rightly conversation at dinner is impossible - better to focus on prayer. Beyond that students of urban sprawl will find plenty of study material on the doorstep. The concierge was very happy to let me carry my own case up the stairs

Response from Diana Pardamean, Owner at Hotel Deli River
Responded Mar 8, 2020
Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. In reaction to your complain about sounds from outside we have put extra isolation in all rooms as well as automatic door closers to minimize sounds from outside. So far very few guests complained about this matter. On the contrary, the majority of our guests praised the quiet and relaxed atmosphere of Hotel Deli River and did not mention any sounds from outside. Considering the assistance of carrying your luggage, our staff always offers to assist with the luggage. In your case you already had carried it yourself so quickly to the room before our staff could have helped you. We are a small scale eco-friendly family hotel in a tropical garden with over 20 species of tropical birds in our compound. We will always do our utmost to offer our guests a nice stay in our hotel. Management Hotel Deli River.

If you want to have a ‘whow’ experience and you need to go to Medan: this is it! Small scale hotel with maximum service to exceed your expectations. Rooms are perfect clean and neat. Restaurant staff treats you like king. And they can improvise: they can arrange a private tour to the volcano’s, historical buildings sightseeing, jungle track walking experience when you arrive. This hotel has all the connections!

A wonderful oasis in Medan! Our family of four had a great four night stay in this beautiful hotel. The food was top notch, with amazing Indonesian and western options. The wait staff were highly attentive and professional with warm smiles abounding. We stayed in the family room with plenty of room for us all. The grounds were immaculate, and we really enjoyed the infinity pool overlooking the Deli river valley. Most memorable will be our time spent with the Buiskool family, the owners and operators, who made us feel so welcome and who so warmly shared their stories and experiences with us.

We utilised this hotel either side of our travels into the rainforest & jungles of Sumatra. A great prepping area with a lovely pool to relax, a brilliant on site restaurant and although on a busy road, the driveway and grounds are peaceful and allowed for a great night's sleep. Room was simple but provided everything we needed. Also a cracking spot to take a look around Medan itself, only a short Bukak ride away!

A wonderful gem in Medan out of the hustle of the city. Beautifully done, It has everything you need but kept simple without any unnecessary fuss.
Lovely staff. Good kitchen. Great atmosphere. A little destination in itself. Lush vegetation and a. pristine pool.
It has a sense of personal character.
They also run tours of Medan and Indonesia.
I can highly recommend.

This hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful gardens, with all sorts of plants. The restaurant is in a lovely traditional building and serves excellent food. The rooms are spotless, with silent a/c, kettle, veranda, nice furnishings. The staff are unobtrusive, efficient and friendly. There’s a really good pool with a lovely view down to the river. I can’t say enough good things about the place. We were only here for 2 nights at the start of our holiday and didn’t feel the need to set foot outside until it was sadly time to move on.

In Indonesia we visited Sumatra, just to find back our roots and that for the first time in 55 years. Searching on the internet for accommodation, we came across the website of Hotel Deli River in Medan. We gave them a call and within 24 hours we received a detailed proposal for our personal "memory-tour" based on our wishes as indicated.
The organization of our trip, the pick-up at the airport and the friendly welcome at the hotel was the start of a perfect holiday.

We had our private car excellently driven by Dedy Suhaidi. Not for a single moment we did feel ourselves uncomfortable being driven through the typical Indonesian traffic. Dedy became our personal coach, he speaks more than acceptable English, even some Dutch, and he acted as an interpreter in our communication with the locals. And most important, he was always very modest, polite and friendly. The car was cleaned daily, in- and outside.
My recommendation: Ask for Dedy !!!

Hotel Deli River became our home. The rooms are perfect, always clean, no mosquitoes, European electricity plugs, very quiet, the window view is excellent in twenty colours of green. The bathroom is good, the shower comfortable, spacious and good ventilated. Very important is that in the room the position of the airco was in such a way that the cold (icy) airflow is indirectly blowing. In front of the rooms is a spacious terrace with seats. The breakfasts are good with a lot of fresh fruit, on the plate and in your glass. And every day fresh flowers on your table. The service is excellent and very friendly. With regards to the restaurant: perfect and recommendable with an extensive card. What I liked is the overall attention to details e.a. at your table you will find a stick to be used to protect your arms and ankles against mosquitoes.

Our trip through the region of Medan brought us also to other hotels, but we were happy when we returned to hotel Deli River. Why? Because of the cleanness, the good meals, the friendly, polite and service oriented management and personnel, it results into lots of feel good moments.

When you are looking for a personal Sumatra tour, fulfilling your personal or general wishes, a private car with an friendly, modest, and safe driving chauffeur, call or email Hotel Deli River, you wont regret it !!!

Hi tiyur, I’m not sure about the price, it might be around 200.000 - 300.000 IDR. Better you check direct to hotel. Or I suggest you choose my room type, there’s 4 bed for 4 peoples.
