Wisma Sederhana
Ranked #7 of 52 Medan B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Booked through phone 3 day before. I'm using the illegal taxi driver (avanza car) to the hotel, and surprisingly he knows the hotel (please use official taxi driver only, I've bring the local with me to share the taxi fare at that time). The entrance of hotel like the newly renovated building. Receptionist attitude was so-so, and the "bellgirl" has lower standard. Breakfast was fine since fried eggs are made to order served.

Pro.
*. Cheap room
*. Air conditioned
*. Near the famous culinary street (you must try, each of it!)
*. Magnetized hotel card-key
*. Hot water & the pressure is good
*. Shampoo in sachet (hard to open but hygiene)
*. Genset energized when electricity out
*. Near main road which becak-motors are available

Cons.
*. AC not cold, must in "JetStream" mode to make it cooler
*. Bed sheet need to be replaced
*. Not so sound proof
*. The lighting need more lumens

Room Tip: Electricity out generally happen in Medan, choose 2nd floor room since lift will be out of service.

The hotel is by the side of the hawkers stores. There is no problem of getting food,moreover, the breakfast given by the hotel is good too. From the hotel to airport, you just have to get a motorcycle 'becha' cost rp 20000 to plaza Medan fair and then take the bus to airport cost rp 15000 . It may take you 2 hours.

Room Tip: Higher floor less noise

We stayed two nights at this hotel. Some of the bechak drivers may have trouble finding this hotel so they may request for more money as opposed to the agreed amount. The deluxe room is small and the air-conditioner was leaking. Toilet paper was not provided although shampoo, shower gel and toothbrush set were provided. Guests are given a free 15-minute head massage which was much enjoyed and appreciated. The hotel staff are friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is a simple affair of noodles and fried egg. However, you can opt for the Chinese food just outside of the hotel. We tried out two stalls and found the food to be delicious. This hotel provides free transport to the railway station which I find is a hassle-free method to travel to the airport. To hail a bechak, just walk to the main road to the left or right of the hotel. Overall, this hotel is fine for a few night's sleep but not more than that.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms are extremely small.

We only stayed one night here, awaiting other friends to arrive to Medan, and we arrived around 11pm-ish by our shared taxi. The entrance location is like a back alley, near to "China town" Medan. Quite a short distance to a mall and food eateries, but did not try as it was almost midnight.

Check-in was prompt. The hotel has wifi but really intermittent. Had free hot water (in the breakfast area), but not hot enough for hot cup noodles and 3-in-1 drinks.

The room was small, a bit smelly, and the toilet has "cockroachy" smell. Water pressure was too strong, so had to take the shower carefully as not to allow the water to spill into the room in that tiny toilet. There was a TV with local channels and telephone to call reception. Towel was too small, probably fit a children rather than an adult. Duvet and bedsheets have stains on them. Somehow, it was a bit itchy when I sat on them, so used my spare towel to cover the bedsheet before I slept.

Okay for a night sleep, will not recommend for longer.

We took a taxi from the airport, organised by the hotel. We later found out we'd been charged 250,000, when the meter price is actually 100,000.

The reception, is the smokiest we've experienced throughout Asia and filthy and stained for it. Everyone smokes everywhere here. We were taken to our windowless room, it smelt like an ashtray. All of our bedding had burn holes in it. Cigarette smoke crept under our door all evening from the hallway. Even at breakfast, we had to sit at a dirty table, with smokers to every side of us.

'Inclusive breakfast' incidentally, was scrambled egg, dry toast and I kid you not, 5 baked beans. The coffee machine had run out, so we half a mug of grainy dregs and powdered milk I had to bring myself.

We never got our 'free massage' either, suspect this is a con to lure you in.

Service was fine - nothing to write home about.

Street food outside hotel, to the right, was great. But the hotel can't take credit for this.

Overall, horrible experience. I wouldn't recommend it, even as a budget option.
