Grand Aston Cityhall Hotel & Serviced Residences
Ranked #4 of 76 Hotels in Medan
Reviewed 5 July 2012

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.

The old Ducth hotel that had been renovated, very convenient to stay. Located in central city of Medan, near to Merdeka Walk, a place to hang out with friends. Very nice hospitality, clean room, nice food to taste in the reataurant. The facilities a very good also. I had tried the pool and spa, very nice.
Near also to the polonia airport, so i dont need to rush when i want to fly again.
Fantastic..!

Grand Aston is a conveniently located hotel, directly opposite Medeka Walk, which is food street with a long row of restaurants and eateries.

Rooms are beautifully designed. Very modern and luxurious. Buffet breakfast was also a treat, with a range and variety of food served. The design of the restaurant was fit for a king, although the furniture were too close to one another.

The lifts were a bit slow, but it wasn't an issue as there were a sufficient number of lifts available. Staff were friendly and polite.

It was a good experience at Grand Aston, and I will surely return.

Room Tip: If on a smaller budget, a normal room is fine. A full service apartment with all amenities can also...

When they constructed the Hotel, the old Dutch colonial City Hall of Medan is preserved. Now, it housed the historical museum of Medan, and a colonial style European Restaurant. The hotel itself is a modern one with first class hotel rooms and all its related facilities like swimming pool, spa, gym, fine restaurants etcetera. For those who prefer to stay separately from hotel, the serviced residences are available too.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the swimming pool are excellent
