I like Lontong and rendang during breakfast. Location very close to shopping complex and few minutes by taxi to Medan Train Station. Spa and sauna also good with sufficient facilities. Only slack was my hotel room view was blocked by other apartment.

Very nice hotel. The restaurant is very clean, the food is tasty and varied. The pool is cool, use the glass wall. The rooms are very clean and tidy. His employees are very friendly and alert when I need help. I am very happy to stay here.

I'm love the interior design and room are very neat and clean . The reception are very friendly including security check. Room service is default for every day thus cleaner also tidy my dresses. The viewing also beautiful.

Grand Swiss-Belhotel may have a big name as a luxury hotel, I can say that everything I needed and everything I wanted could be met by this hotel. Luxury, comfort, attractive view, luxurious rooms, friendly staff, and many other things I might write in a longer review. But there is one thing that still makes me feel less excited about this hotel is its position that shares the building with a mall that makes the entrance and lobby less exclusive and private. The impression of less luxury comes when you know the hotel entrance as there is in the corner of the building where the mall gets a better entrance. But beyond that, they have no problems whatsoever.

We booked 6 deluxe rooms through a local agent who also arranged tours outside Medan. Because the agent didn’t specify 6 non-smoking rooms at booking there were none for us; either there’re no such rooms in this hotel, or they refused to reassign even one as I was at the front desk at 12ish before the 2pm check in time. All 6 rooms were spread over 2 smoking levels. The overwhelming tobacco stench stems from the fact that the hotel endorses guests smoking with the room door ajar. Both on the 10th and 11th floors there were at least a room each with doors ajar and tobacco smoke belching like a chimney. Since front desk offered to change my room from the second day, I surveyed many many floors and came to the conclusion there are no non-smoking floors. All 6 deluxe rooms are sizeable with firm twin beds. However, there are unbelievable issues for this rated hotel: • 4 minibars of 6 rooms don’t run • Aircon in rooms 1003 and 1015 remain at 22°C regardless of setting • Room 1015 does not have Grab Bar in shower • Only 1 of 3 guest elevators worked at any one time. Minimum wait time for Level 10 was 6 minutes. On one occasion I waited 14 minutes • Room 1015 is not soundproof and I recorded a conversation from 1016 sitting on my bed using my iPhone (available upon request). I wouldn’t advise booking unless you check out the room personally!

Like the location and shopping mall attached with the hotel. Staff are good manner and well train. Room is clean. The hotel is well maintain. Room rate are reasonable. Strongly recommend to friends and family.

Grand Swissbel was for many years my go to hotel in Medan for business. Over the last few weeks I have stayed several times and it has continued to disappoint on all fronts. The maintenance, service and rooms have deteriorated terribly. Maintenance issues such as faulty fridges flashing lights. Service issues - forgetting towels, not making up the room, not following through on requests. The breakfast dining room was unattended by a single staff member for over 15 minutes at 630 am. Bookings are not as per my request...really is disappointing.

Room nice and clean and there is spa and fitness facilities available at the hotel for free. very enjoy stay at this hotel. some times I bring also my wife to do business in this hotel and she enjoy and relax staying in the room.

The hotel is located right in the city center and connected to Cambridge Mall. It took about 45 minutes or so from the airport to the hotel. The room is spacious and clean. The bed is comfortable but the pillows are too soft. The carpet in the room and at the corridor need upgrading. Staff was friendly and check-in was hassle free. The best thing was the buffet breakfast, mostly local Indonesian fare, was delicious. I find the pipe-in music from the corridor is a nuisance very noisy. Hopefully the hotel would change to some soothing music next time I visit. Room tips: the traffic in the city is pretty bad. Stay higher floor to avoid traffic noise.

The hotel located in a mall so its quiet convenient. And it is in the city of medan where all the hype are. The hotel is recommended for staying when visiting medan.. deffinately come back to this hotel.
