I'm certain this hotel had its glory days in the 80s. At least it gave me flashbacks to the hotels my family stayed at in Lima, Peru in the 90s. The hotel is worn out. Looks like it hasn't been painted or maintained since it was built. Room walls and other (such as AC) were completely black. I specifically asked...

Firstly they provide airport transfer (40K IDR/pax). That save you a lot of hassle to find taxi/other transport to hotel. Rooms acceptable for 2-3 nites, good breakfast for what you pay (inclusive). My flight back was at 5.00am, the staff was very kind to serve us coffee and toast at 2.45am before leaving to airport. At 3.05am the van was...

It was our first stop Indonesia , I let my friend find a place. It was okay, nothing special. It wasn't near any of the tourist site but was a short distance to the shopping plaza. We ended up staying there for two night since I wasn't feeling too well. The room has ac and a tv with limited channels....

As others have said, this place is acceptable enough for one night. It's on a busy street, but the rooms are blocked off from the noise (don't think we even heard the early morning call to prayer from the nearby mosque), and the room was clean. But the staff wasn't very friendly or helpful when we tried to find out...

Can't complain cos it's cheap... I suggest you spring a little extra for the massionette room though. It feels less cramped the the standard room. It has a downstairs living room and an upstairs bedroom which has two beds. Can fit 3 to 4 people. And don't be fooled by the lovely photos they have on the website... They found...

On security ,perhaps they should ensure that those damaged security hook on the door to be replaced. Dun forget to close the verandah fully if you are staying along...

Paid about $30 for a room including breakfast, wifi and pick-up from the airport. Beds a little too soft for me. Building old fashioned in a pleasant way but front modern in an ugly way. Location not great but there is a shopping plaza close. Staff very helpful resulting in a good trip to Lake Toba by minibus. The restaurant...
