The story was as follows. Guest Mr. Kembaren came to our hotel at 16.00 and stayed until 18.30. Our staff answered his questions and remarks politely and friendly. He wanted to book a certain room and the guest changed his mind and he wanted to book another type of room. Shortly after this, he wanted to book a room for...

The hotel is a little bit out of the centre of Medan. Unless you really want to be in the city the location is fine. There is a village with a few shops and laundry so not as isolated as some of the reviews would lead you to believe. The rooms are very clean with A/C and hot showers. The...

Deli River is clean, green and relatively calm. My room was ok but there was no bathtub and had only a basic bathroom. There was a tv but only with local channels sadly. The wifi was fine and relatively fast. Since there is absolutely nothing around but a dirty and noisy street, guests must eat in the restaurant. The dishes...

The location of Hotel Deli River is the nearest place to Medan with a view of the Sumatran tropical jungle. Our rooms are set in a tropical garden and it takes around 40 minutes by car to the city centre. We have rooms with and without bathtub, all our Honeymoon Rooms have bathtubs and some of our Deluxe Cottages have...

The Hotel Deli River is as lovely and peaceful an oasis as one could ask for, masterfully created amidst the bustle of suburban Medan. With an excellent restaurant, an established touring company, an extensive and beautiful tropical garden, a lovely swimming pool, and a crew of well trained staff, the family run Hotel Deli River offers everything you need with...

Overall this is a very clean and well run hotel with beautifully maintained gardens but it's location is isolated. The street outside is very busy and dirty with not much on it except for a convenience store or two. It's not walking distance or an easy commute to the more central areas of Medan. It is also about an hour...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Deli River before and after our 5 day trip to Bukit Lawang and Lake Toba.. The grounds and location of the hotel and restaurant are very pleasant and, most importantly, way from the traffic. The gardens were very peaceful and lush - complete with two amiable quacking ducks!. Our cottage room was very...

We stayed two nights at Hotel Deli River, at the beginning and end of a 15 day trip through North and West Sumatra that we arranged through Tri Jaya Tour and Travel (operated by the owners of the hotel, Diana and Dirk) in November 2014.
