The location of this hotel is perfect. The staff are all really friendly and helpful, walking distance to some nice local bars with the best local bands. Hotel is perfectly located, with a beach. Huge ground and large in space. However, the bathroom was a huge disappointment - not a single toiletries provided, no bathroom mat, out of 6 showers... More

One of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. When I arrived, I found dirty cups and plates in the bush outside my room. The rooms my family and I stayed in (40&41) were so grubby and dirty. In room 40 there was blood and makeup up the wall also the toilet floor was soaking wet without me stepping foot... More

The hotel was value for money, although it wasn't provided by AC, the weather is quite cold at night. The location is near public restaurant etc. We can rent a bicycle or motor bike to wander around the island. Recommended for family traveling because there's no TV (at least in the standard room) so you are expected to chat much... More

The traditional batak house room is very good you better book standard room like a cottage with good view of lake samosir. The service is good but the facilities is not good enough but is very good to enjoy the lake while night and day

My Indonesian girlfriend didn't like the first room the put us in because it looked like a batak grave. She was scared. We asked for a room switch which they gladly did. No hot water but from a European perspectives it doesn't matter. As a European the price is OK.

We stayed here for two days, we spent the dinner here everynight. Price quite fair, wife and I were enjoyed any foods we ordered. Eventhough there are many restaurants on walking distance, we were prefer this restaurant as the place quite cozy during day and night. They mainly offer Indonesian and western foods.

If your looking for a place to relax in the vending this wasn't the place. Loud karaoke bar next door that ends at 11:00 so it's tolerable but with earplugs. The is only one one side of the hotel the other is a more common area with many rooms and when we stayed there it had 40 high school students... More

This is my second time.. For me, whoever want to relax you can stay here.. The price range is mid-high.. I really fall in love with the environment.. The hotel didn't provide air-cond or fan.. At night it quite cold.. The hotel provide boat, motorcycle, and car with driver.. If you want to rent it you can ask the reception..... More

We've booked an economy beach room, but it is not situated at a beach at all, it is just close to the water, that's all and for that we paid 180000IDR, which was very inaccurate for what we got. There was no seat on the toilet and no handle in the shower. Besides, the service in the restaurant is very... More
