Reviewed March 26, 2012

The room is superb even though we stay for one night. Very clean & cozy. Staff are friendly. For breakfast, the food is excellent. Easy excess to nearby restaurants & food outlet. Planning to come again this december.

3 fun friends and I spent a night here after welcoming 2012 in Pulau Weh before heading to Medan. We took 2 rooms on the !st floor.Hard mattress.Floors a little dusty. Air-condition works.Bathroom is old but water pressure is good plus there is hot shower.Odd toilet bowl though as the bowl hole is at the front.Got to see it to believe it.Staff is friendly.There is a Culinary Centre across the road from the hotel which has local fares. However cleanliness is definitely not their top priority. Order a mineral water bottle as their fruit juices/coffee/tea is overloaded with sugar.I would recommend this for anyone who wants a decent clean,cheap,place to shower and sleep for a night.Breakfast was provided.Only the eggs were tasty.Everything else local was not inviting.

We stayed for a night in Hotel Medan before leaving for Pulau Weh the day after for holiday. Room was okay, not so fresh. The bed isn't comfy (thats what you get for the price you paid). Wide varieties of Acehnese hawker food on the street across the hotel. There is hot shower provided and TV with varieties of channels to choose from. Suitable for no fuss travelers.

I was staying at Hotel Medan for one night before heading to Pulau Weh for some diving, it was at the center of the city, good local food just outside the hotel. However the rooms are just okay, with hot shower, TV and bed, a simple hotel good for a night stay.

We stayed here for 1 night before catch a morning ferry to Sabang, Weh Island. Overall this hotel is average, nothing to complaint about just nice for short stay at affordable price. we booked room for 3 people, priced USD35 including b/fast. They have no cable tv. toilet is clean, toiletries and towel provided. breakfast is also average nothing special, just fried noodle, fried rice, fried banana, fresh fruit and coffee/tea. they have WIFI in room and lobby.

Room Tip: The hotel located infront of food court and many shops. very easy to find foods and local sim card.

We stayed here for 2 nights, we chose the standard room for 18usd - which I thought a bit expensive - because the deluxe one had no windows and looked smaller. The room was clean and the sheets smelled good. After rustic Ketambe this was pretty comfortable. The bathroom is getting a bit old, specially the very rusty metal on toilet and faucets, but overall no big complains, an ok place.

Was coming off a four day road trip across North Sumatra. To finally get hot water, clean beds, air con, electricity and a clean room was such a relief (yes, you can go to really upsacle hotels and not get electricity). Right in the center of town, newly renovated and the price was good for an overnight stay before moving on to Pulau Weh. There's a framed the photo of the giant ship lodged right in front of their hotel during the tsunami.
I normally stay in budget hotels but not sure I would have stayed there for long. Just what I wanted when I needed it. There's Sulthan hotel nearby which looks a little more upscale but rooms are very old. Head off to Green Paradise which is a much better one at the same price - found that out through some of the tsunami NGO workers I met later. It's a little off but Banda is not that big a town.
