On my 2nd trip to Medan, my travel agent managed to book rooms for me and my colleague at this hotel. When I first arrive at the lobby, I was already impressed with the elegant design of the interiors. The reception ladies were very warm and full of smiles. I was even offered for a free membership to enjoy on the entire Swiss Belhotel chain. Not to forget, the welcome drink is very pleasant.
A very good thing regarding the location of this hotel is that it is just next door to Cambridge Mall, a medium-sized mall with a number of popular restaurants. I ate my dinner at Duck King on the 3rd Floor.
My first opinion of the room is very, very positive. It is significantly large. 40" LCD w/ lots of channels to choose with; a spacious and clean bathroom and of course, comfy beds and 3 pillows to rest your head on.
The only thing that bothered me was that the working desk is located just across the aircon ventilation. Though I have set the temperature to minimal, still the wind blowing is strong enough to make me a little dizzy after 30 mins in front of my laptop working. Besides that, everything was great.
Breakfast the next morning was also very pleasant. We can choose a lot of menu ranging from Indonesian, Asian and Western dishes. I love their 'Lontong Cap Gomeh' or Sumatran Laksa and also the hot waffle.
In the end, this hotel will be my first preference on my next trip to Medan.
