Grand Aston is well-located in the more upmarket area of the commercial district in Medan, with banks flanking both sides and also Merdeka Walk, a “happening” place with a long line of cafes and eateries that start bustling after sundown, right across the road.
The hotel looked very majestic from the outside and the room was spacious and clean and best of all, the strong rain shower in the bath was really marvellous especially after every outing in humid, air-polluted and noise-polluted Medan. There is also a “Bluebird” taxi designated corner within the hotel compound for their guests’ convenience.
However, there were a few downsides that I feel need mention here. One was that the room was not really sound-proof as the noise of stomping feet and slamming of doors from the top or adjacent rooms could disturb your sleep especially in the still of the night. The other one was that there was no wi-fi in the room except for cable-access internet and I think a hotel of this stature and calibre should consider providing free wi-fi access for all their guests within its entire premises. Another was the breakfast buffet which left much to be desired; there’s plenty of room for improvement in terms of spread, quality and taste and the F&B management should work towards rectifyng this shortfall.
All in all, we found the entire hotel staff to be very friendly and courteous, and yes we did have a good stay in Grand Aston.
