We spent 3 nights here in the Deluxe Batak house. Don't let this name fool you, it had a very sharp price and really good value, especially for TukTuk. If we would come back to lake Toba, we would definitely stay here again. The room: The Batak house is very charming, you feel like a Hobbit with the small entrance...

we stayed in comfort room, slightly bigger than the standard room, i love that got 2 single blanket instead of 1 big blanket, so no one can hoard the blanket, hehe. No air condition, no fan, but the temperature in Samosir need neither. Plus, enjoy the silent it, surprising made us sleep better. Internet is fine, restaurant is ok too....

One of the best Hotels I have ever been in SEA and it's not even that expensive. The view when you wake up is a paradise for city-eggs like me and the staff is amazing! Love you Anita and Rahmat! You were the best :) Besos desde Viena ♥️

We didn't know whether we should choose a Batak house at Lake Toba, because we were afraid that it might be uncomfy. After two other guesthouses were full, we found Romlan and later we were so happy that the first two didn't have room for us! The owner showed us two options facing the lake: A cheaper room and the...

I was asked many time in Medan and in Tuk Tuk why select Romlan Guesthouse? I guess they were all jealous about Romlan... However Romlan proof that u don't have to be big, to be good. U just have to be nice to people that u meet! My wife and I are not thrifty travelers, I wrote many email to...

We stayed there August 2011. Initially we chose this place expecting the clearest water. And it was! Located on a ledge Romlan is the best place to swim. Water was calm and clean, rapidly going down on the depth. Sleeping there is also great - houses are not close to the street. Staff was very lovely and unobtrusive. Rooms big...

My wife and me spent here 3 nights. We had a cosy bungalow with lake view, nice terasse, hot water and wi-fi. The staff was very friendly. Everything was just perfect. They organised transport to other places, scooter, cooked very tasty dishes and they all remembered our names. It was like coming home. We will definitely come back again:)

I stayed here for 11 nights just recently. Lovely place right on the lake.The staff were very friendly. Good food in the restaurant. Nice rooms with big balcony overlooking the lake. The hot water and wi Fi worked very well. Lake Toba is a great place to relax. I would say again.

Due to time constraints, I was only able to spend two nights here (which is a shame, as it was one of the most relaxing experiences of my life). It's not an easy thing, just to get to this location - as it requires multiple modes of transportation (planes/roads/boats & so forth)... But once you finally arrive, exhausted and fatigued......

We spend 4 lovely days there, with a lake view. We took a deluxe room, which was good, clean, with a small balcony, hot water. The staff is nice and restaurant is ok but for the price, we found better places outside. We had breakfast, lunch and diner there. At the end, when it comes to the bill, there was...
