The Hotel Deli River is a family hotel about twelve kilometers outside the historical city of Medan. It is located in a lush tropical garden area that overlooks the banks of the ancient meandering Deli river. Our garden is home for more than 25 different birds, native fruits and flowers. We grow many Indonesian spices in our garden and use them in our kitchen. We serve at breakfast fresh pineapple, papaya, banana juice which grow at our place.

A wonderful oasis in Medan! Our family of four had a great four night stay in this beautiful hotel. The food was top notch, with amazing Indonesian and western options. The wait staff were highly attentive and professional with warm smiles abounding. We stayed in the family room with plenty of room for us all. The grounds were immaculate, and we really enjoyed the infinity pool overlooking the Deli river valley. Most memorable will be our time spent with the Buiskool family, the owners and operators, who made us feel so welcome and who so warmly shared their stories and experiences with us.

Hotel's Favourite
We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Deli River. The rooms are massive, beautiful and kept clean throughout our stay. The property is amazing with lots of greenery. The main house/building has 2 big restaurant spaces (1 for breakfast and 1 for lunch/dinner) where their delicious food is served. Definitely try out the bitterballen (we had to being Dutch)! There's also a great pool to swim in and relax by. It is located just a little bit outside Medan so not ideal if you're there to really visit Medan (unless you're willing to get a driver), but we enjoyed it so much at the property that we didn't leave. It is however relatively close (1hr drive) to the airport so perfect if you want to relax a little before you fly. Would highly recommend!

This hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful gardens, with all sorts of plants. The restaurant is in a lovely traditional building and serves excellent food. The rooms are spotless, with silent a/c, kettle, veranda, nice furnishings. The staff are unobtrusive, efficient and friendly. There’s a really good pool with a lovely view down to the river. I can’t say enough good things about the place. We were only here for 2 nights at the start of our holiday and didn’t feel the need to set foot outside until it was sadly time to move on.

A wonderful gem in Medan out of the hustle of the city. Beautifully done, It has everything you need but kept simple without any unnecessary fuss. Lovely staff. Good kitchen. Great atmosphere. A little destination in itself. Lush vegetation and a. pristine pool. It has a sense of personal character. They also run tours of Medan and Indonesia. I can highly recommend.

If you want to have a ‘whow’ experience and you need to go to Medan: this is it! Small scale hotel with maximum service to exceed your expectations. Rooms are perfect clean and neat. Restaurant staff treats you like king. And they can improvise: they can arrange a private tour to the volcano’s, historical buildings sightseeing, jungle track walking experience when you arrive. This hotel has all the connections!

I would challenge anyone to find a more serene and beautiful hotel escape in Medan. From the moment you drive into the property, you are captivated by the charm of your surroundings. It was the perfect location to commence and conclude my jungle and wildlife adventures in the jungles and surroundings of North Sumatra (which were also organised by the hotel/Tri Jaya tour and travel). It really was the perfect place to unwind and recharge after a long-haul flight, surrounded by the well-kept and manicured garden, great food, and the wonderfully attentive staff. All these made my stay at Hotel Deli River such a pleasure to travel to and spend time in Medan. The fusion cuisine, vegetarian food options, homemade/grown breads/spreads/vegetables/spices, happy hour and freshly brewed single origin local coffee were all exceptional (especially breakfast). I was also fortunate enough to be staying on a Saturday evening where a live DJ session was also offered. It was a wonderful atmosphere and opportunity to meet some locals. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience and stay.

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel. We loved the quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Although there is a mosque in the area we were not disturbed by the prayer and had a very good sleep. The staff was very helpfull, they were kind and assisted us with everything including carrying our luggage to the room. We enjoyed the food, the swimmingpool and the green environment

lovely garden, nice food, swimming pool etc. The hotel is very well situated between 2 mosques both using amplified automated electronic prayers starting at 5am. This is great - you can enjoy the prayers from the conmfort of your bed. Also quite rightly conversation at dinner is impossible - better to focus on prayer. Beyond that students of urban sprawl will find plenty of study material on the doorstep. The concierge was very happy to let me carry my own case up the stairs

Response from Diana Pardamean, Owner at Hotel Deli River
Responded 8 Mar 2020
Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. In reaction to your complain about sounds from outside we have put extra isolation in all rooms as well as automatic door closers to minimize sounds from outside. So far very few guests complained about this matter. On the contrary, the majority of our guests praised the quiet and relaxed atmosphere of Hotel Deli River and did not mention any sounds from outside. Considering the assistance of carrying your luggage, our staff always offers to assist with the luggage. In your case you already had carried it yourself so quickly to the room before our staff could have helped you. We are a small scale eco-friendly family hotel in a tropical garden with over 20 species of tropical birds in our compound. We will always do our utmost to offer our guests a nice stay in our hotel. Management Hotel Deli River.
