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...

Dear SAMFLFlorida, Thank you very much for your review. We have taken the following steps to ensure that the valuables and belongings of our guests are safeguarded. First, we have dismissed the employee that was in charge of the maintenance of the room you were staying in. We dismissed her on the grounds that after watching 12 hours of CCTV...

This place is meticulously designed and maintained. There is an obvious woman's touch in both. The staff are superb, including Ayu and Rina. The rooms are spacious and decorated with style. There are lots of small niceties. The food is excellent. Medan is a sprawling city noted more for being a gateway than a destination but this place is a...

It was a relief to arrive in this beautiful garden after a long, busy trip from the airport of Medan. We were made to feel very welcome by the extremely friendly staff. The rooms were all large, very nicely decorated(we saw two), very private in separate houses with each their own terasse with view on the lovely gardens with mesmerizing...

Hotel River Deli is the antidote to the hectic city vibe of Medan. When you arrive on property, you feel like you are on vacation. Bungalows are comfortable and air-conditioned with reliable internet. The staff is friendly and helpful. The owners Dirk and Diana are extremely knowledgeable about the history of Medan and can organize tours through their tour company,...

We have just spent New Year at the Deli River in a last minute three-night break from Singapore. It was our second trip to Sumatra, having been to lake Toba in '92 with our baby daughter.
