Hartelijk dank dat wij bij u konden logeren. Janet Deibert on October 17, 2014 at 2:35 pm We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful and well organized hotel. The hotel is managed by very friendly and helpful people and owned by leuke Dutch/ Indonesian people. It was a perfect mix between being relatively close to the city of Medan and staying in the oasis of a quiet, calm and safe environment. Our teenaged children enjoyed the pool and restaurant (free Wifi :)) with next to Indonesian food also pannenkoeken en poffertjes on the menu. The hotel/ restaurant has a wonderful view and decor. We arranged our tours and trips through/ from this hotel for a part of Sumatra, they have the best connections to give you a smooth and yet authentic sight. We specially liked our (Hotel Deli connected) senior driver and guide Mr. Erwin since he was calm, always on time and he had a lot of nice stories on the area. He was helpful and friendly, all English spoken. We came to this hotel in our first 3 days which was perfect for acclimatizing from our Dutch to the Indonesian world and temperature. After doing a roundtrip to the jungle and lake Toba (well organized by Deli) we wanted to come back for a ‘pause’ in a familiar place. We felt very welcome and at home. Prices maybe little above Indonesian average but still for European standards very reasonable. Price/ quality is very good, specially with children (pool, large terrain etc.) and for people who want to see crowded and historical Medan but still enjoy the quietness of a spatial and clean hotel. I would describe Deli River as the best kept secret of the Medan area.
