We stayed for only one night in Lake Toba (Samosir Island) and two nights in Berastagi (Medan).
We stayed in Rudang hotel (Berastagi) over the next two nights but no pictures of our rooms though!
We didn’t swim, didn’t have the time and it was too cold!
This is the reception area and where the restaurant is, the only area with wifi around hotel vicinity. Lots of mosquitoes there, so cover up!
We like where we stayed, both in Lake Toba and Berastagi. The room in Carolina hotel was quite spacious and the room was quite cooling even though there was no air-conditioning or fan.
Rudang hotel was nice too, room has air-conditioning (even though we didn’t need it) and its about 15 mins walk to the night market/fruit market. “Angkut” or the mini van/bus would take 5 mins or so.
