We had a fantastic time at Hotel Deli River. The hotel environment was beautiful and very diligently maintained by the hard-working grounds staff. The location was exactly what we wanted; away from hustle and bustle. The restaurant served exceptionally delicious food and a wide range of it too. Staff were more than just professionally competent and efficient, they were genuinely...

This was my second stay at Hotel Deli River and it didn't disappoint. My parents, sister, brother, sister in-law, niece and nephew all came along this time and had a great experience. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is always a highlight. Getting my nephew out of the pool was difficult (well, getting us all out was, it's beautiful)....

We had a great experience at the Deli River. The owners and staff were very friendly, the food was good, the Wifi worked well, the grounds lovely, and the tours were well thought out. Our driver, Deddy, was great. The roads in Medan (and out to Bukit Lawang!) are a mixed bag, so be ready for potholes. Note that it's...

We sure needed this one night here after ZERO sleep at our previous location. Lovely room, lovely gardens and absolutely awesome meal which we chose to have in our room on the balcony. Room was extremely well appointed and very comfortable and overlooked a large lake surrounded by gorgeous gardens.

This place is just amazing! Travelers who have allready been to Medan know that this lively city can be really noisy and dirty. This is why staying at this beautiful "green oasis" only a short trip from the city center is so perfect. The rooms are also really comfortable and clean and on a hot day there is nothing better...

The hotel was peaceful and beautifully maintained with gardens, pond and pool. The staff were so friendly and the breakfast one of the best ever! The trips I took were also well organized and enjoyable.

Upon arriving, we were greeted by Elie ( I hope that I spelled her name correctly), who had to be the best hotel employee that I met in Indonesia. I loved this hotel even more because of her. She went out of way to make sure that we were taken care of. The rooms are comfortable with everything that you...

A wonderful place to start and end my nostalgic trip to visit places where I had lived and gone to school, more than 65 (!) years ago. My itinerary put together by Trijaya Tours was perfect and my thoughtful driver excellent. Diana, wife of Dirk Buiskool, owners of the hotel and travel agency and her staff, made me really feel...

My 1-night stay was absolutely delightful. I wish I had been in town longer! This hotel is OUTSIDE of Medan, but very easy to reach from the airport. Extremely glad not to stay in noisy dirty Medan. I'd take the quiet, beautiful garden setting any day. The food was good, the staff was lovely. If I'm in this part of...

This place is a nice oasis from the hectic city and a good place to spend some downtime. Nice pool, little lake with ducks, playground, and each room has a nice balcony/deck where you can relax. The restaurant is good...their gado gado was my favorite dish of our trip. The restaurant closes at 9 and they shut up the whole...
