“Really good choice for Medan”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

You have to be careful about Medan hotel booking. We saw some very rough looking hotels. The Aryaduta was far from being in that category!
All advance contact with the hotel was helpful and professional and this was maintained throughout our stay.
The rooms are quite large and thought little old fashioned very good for Indonesia. They were clean and well serviced and although the air conditioning was over enthusiastic, otherwise fine.
The pool area was very good and the pool of good length and usually empty of swimmers.
Breakfast, we thought, was very pleasant and extensive with a very good range of choices including more than enough for western tastes.
There is not a lot to see in terms of sights in Medan but what there is, is relatively close.
Overall we thought this was a very good choice at a competitive price.

Stayed 6 nights in this hotel because we booked through internet turn out to be rather dissapointing for a 5 star hotel. When we arrive..no bell boy helping with our baggage..we had to carry to the lobby on 9th fl by small elevator. The bed was not a king bed as offered on the interned but rather only queen that I had to book extra bed for my daughter. The facilities inside the room was far from satisfaction. For example if you still have 1/2 bottle of mineral water left..the next day hoysekeeping only provided 1 bottle instead of two. Also shower gel, toilet tisse and shampoos were only replaced the next day only if running out completely.
Breakfast was dissapointing because it seems there werent many varieties of buffet breakfast....and the staff were very slow replacing the food and drinks which already finished with new ones..often we had to remind them...also some of them had poor manner..one servant accidentaly drop a knife near my daughter's foot while cleaning other table and did not even bother to apologize.
Overall this hotel shouldnt declare as 5 star hotel and should improve their service first.

My husband & I recently spent several days at this hotel with a couple of friends, and found it to be very friendly. We had a lovely, large room with a good sized bathroom and a good sized lounge area. Breakfast, which was included in our cost was a buffet with a good selection and variety of choices. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The pool was clean and had plenty of lounge seats around, with pool attendant providing towels instantly we arrived there.
The location is handy to several markets and is within walking distance to the Merdeka Walk night market. We caught a taxi from the airport, but while at the hotel we realised it was easier to catch a taxi to the railway station and return to the airport by train.

This hotel is a fantastic 4-star value in Medan. Unless you're expecting perfection, you won't be disappointed. Great location, good facilities, and a beautiful, relaxing pool compliment the helpful and friendly service.

Large room, good sized bathroom. We had a poolside room which gave us patio access to the pool.

Check in was quick and easy, staff were friendly and helpful. Better than average breakfast buffet.

My only gripe is the price they charge for bottled water at dinner...INR 60,000!!! That's almost $6. They give you free bottles of water in your room and next door at the grocery store, it's only INR 4,000, why gouge the guests?

Overall, a pleasant experience and I would definitely return.

Stay for two nights for group meeting. Rooms are spacious, quiet and I had a good quality of sleep. Breakfast buffet was good, I can say it was a best experience breakfast in Medan. But they should be better in banquet service.
