“Deli River Hotel Medan”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

I have an eco- tour business where we need to provide our guests with a quality hotel, good service and delicious food. The Deli River delivers on all of these along with friendly personalised service and immaculately clean rooms. The location is excellent and provides a very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Diana and her team are doing an excellent job and thoroughly recommend their hotel to anyone travelling to Medan.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great but couples might like to ask for one of the new rooms.

We loved our stay at this hotel. It's a quiet place just 20 minutes from downtown Medan. The food is good, at breakfast they had home-made cake and pineapple jam. When we had an early check out, they gave us a breakfastbox to take with us! The rooms are big and clean,no refrigerator but you can use the one in the restaurant. The swimmingpool is lovely with an amazing view.
We arranged our trip to Lake Toba and Brestagi also at their travel agency, Trijaya travel. If you want to know about the history of Medan, just ask the owner, he would love to tell you about it.
When I go back to Medan, I would stay here again.

We started a 16 day tour of northern Sumatra with 2 nights at deli river hotel. The room was very nice with hot water, WiFi and air con. The restaurant was good by Sumatran standards, but I would not recommend buying wine - its too difficult to ensure reasonable quality and the price is high, especially if its 'off'. Breakfast was excellent, but if you're working to a schedule allow plenty of time as things can be a bit slow. All in all, a good place to stay - probably much better than options in Medan.

We started our Sumatra trip in this dutch-run venue with a nice airport pick-up. A very clean and comfortable room and quiet with nice and helpful staff.
Better than we expected when booking in advance.

Stayed here for one night prior to leaving for airport. THe rooms are really lovely, all very modern and recently refurbished with good bathrooms. The staff are attentive and polite. However, the restaurant is a complete let down - we had dinner there - we ordered steaks but two of us had steaks that were rancid which we sent back - the staff's attitude was a little non comital - we then ordered the more expensive T bone steaks which the others had ordered as they had nothing else but were still charged the full price. We ordered wine which was on the menu as dry French white wine but was nothing of the sort...Again, when we sent it back, we were told they had stopped stocking french wine because no one bought it and so had substituted for a cheap local alternative. I think the problem was that they just don't know how to cook western style food and we should have known better than to order it - although the majority of the clientele that night were western. We all had tummy upsets the following day.

Room Tip: Don't eat the western food - stick with the local indonesian fare

I had a wonderful stay at this lovely, family-run inn and restaurant. The owners and staff are so courteous and kind, and are clearly committed to prompt and classy service. Going to see the amazingly-kept grounds is worth the trip alone. The restaurant is also first-class, with very tasty Indonesian and Chinese-inspired dishes, but also a solid Western-inspired menu. One night, I was craving a steak and the chef did not disappoint! Visiting Medan from anywhere, especially abroad, and not staying here would be a serious mistake!
