This is my second stay in this hotel and will highly recommend this hotel to all. Clean rooms and the most important, very friendly staff from the door man to the room attendants, they are very friendly and make you feel at home.

I realy like the elevated floors in rooms where you could look out the window and enjoy the day. This will be my choice for my future stays to Medan. And also walking distance to the big shopping malls. Great Hotel.

A very well managed hotel for Medan. Cheers to the team!

For the price, facilities were good, room was clean, no complaints there. But this morning I was woken 5 times between 7.30am and 8.30am, mostly because of a mistake - being brought someone else's room service order. By the standard of "getting a good night's sleep", I would have been better off staying in a backpacker's at half the price.

Stayed here on our first and last nights in Sumatra. Reception/foyer area large and gives the impression of fancy hotel. As we didn't book the rooms ourselves, I am guessing our room for our first night was a slightly higher standard than our room for the last night. For instance the floors were made of lovely polished boards giving it a more colonial feel. The rooms are quite spacious with a nice outlook to the expansive grounds and swimming pool. The bathroom is average but nothing to complain about. On request you can obtain a voucher for free in-room wi-fi. From memory it gives 2 hours access. Our second room did not have the polished boards and was as we could smell, on a smoking floor and everything was ingrained with the smell of cigarette smoke.
Breakfast buffet is average with an egg station which is always a bonus.
No complaints, nothing to get excited about and from the sign at the front desk advertising rack rates, it's excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a non-smoking room if you are a non-smoker

Absolutely the worst Hotel I have ever stayed at.
Avoid at all cost, completely hopeless.
No service, no breakfast, no bar, no mini bar, no nothing.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel, not this one

WOW !

W - Wouldn't stay again.
O - Only ended up here because someone else booked it...
W - Why did someone book me here?

OK Lets go! :

- 80's style (not the cool 80's style the tacky beige brown 80's style).
- A Horrible trance nightclub adjacent to the premises
- After 9pm a steady flow of 'questionable' people in and out of the lifts

Positives?:

- There is a piano bar to the right of the check-in with cheap booze.
- Two of us ate the breakfast buffet and it was actually OK.
- Laundry service was fast, cheap and efficient

Conclusion?

2/5

we're planning to spend several night there but I changed my mine after several reasons. We stayed at the apartment section, found out the balcony was locked and I asked the reception named Ruth Simangunsong for the key to my balcony. To my surprise she said that they will not let u have/use the balcony because small animal such little snake could come in to the room. Whaaat??;; I was very upset because I choose to stay in the apartment knowing I could relax outside in the balcony, isn't that what I payed the price for (Rp.650 000/nght)??? She also said that I only have 2 passes to the swimming pool. how disgusting . So if we wnted to use the swimming pool we have to pay extra (there were 2adult/2kids). Amazing,,,,
For dinner we eat at the RIUNG LEMBUR restaurant, On the menu listed say the price included tax and service but when the bill came they still charge me tax and service, I will never stay in owefull hotel ever again. I decided to go to Jakarta the next day.

Horrible breakfast: cutlery is always missing. Useless staff who often ring you at night to ask you to pay for a bill, aster they told you that they would charge you on your room bill. Old furniture, unclean bedsheets and bathroom. Smokey café. A lot of prostitution at night. Just don't go there. Only the swimming pool is a bit nice.
