Hotel Review 2019 -Cambridge Hotel, Medan, North Sumatera


After “roughing” it out around North Sumatera, namely Bukit Lawang and also Tangkahan, where we had to “suffer” through cold water baths (see how spoilt we are)… It felt like heaven when we stepped foot inside the Cambridge Hotel Medan..


The Cambridge Hotel Medan was formerly known as Grand Swiss-Belhotel Medan… And it is a premiere modern lifestyle hotel with 242-rooms located in the central business district of Medan, North Sumatera….



What makes it super awesome was the hotel was connected to the Cambridge Plaza shopping mall with four levels of cafes, restaurants, shops and, best of all, a “Brastagi” supermarket on the ground floor..

Anyone who knows me knows my slight eccentricity which is to buy local products and bring home and where better then the local convenience store or supermarket…


Our room was on the 18th floor and it was really lovely… It had two lovely single beds in the room, and like most hotels the amenities in the room was ample but luxurious…


Our bathroom was spacious and classy in black marble and even came with a bathtub…


We had a simple but lovely farewell dinner hosted by Kemenpar (Kementerian Parawisata Indonesia /Indonesia Tourism) at the rooftop lounge/restaurant and the food was quite good….


And the view at the rooftop was nothing short of breathtaking, with the sight of Medan city litted up at night…

When dinner was over we retired for the night in our cosy beds in our beautiful room…

Woke up next morning and wandered around the place as I always do, taking in sights etc.. And when I head outside with my handbag dangling and immediately one of the hotel security came up to warn me to be careful when outside… And that there might be snatch thieves around…


Headed to Level 1 for breakfast  and I was truly impressed by the super generous spread of Asian breakfasts, continental breakfast, fresh bread and pastries, Indonesian specialities and so much… We were truly spoilt for choice, and super stuffed by the time we decide to surrender due to our stomach not having anymore room for anymore food…


The hotel facilities were pretty good. The aquarium style (glass wall) swimming pool and gym on Level 7 were really picturesque and nice to soak in…


And although the gym was pretty small and basic, you can get your workout done and also do  some light resistance training

Address – Jl. S. Parman No.217, Petisah Tengah, Kec. Medan Petisah, Kota Medan, Sumatera Utara 20152


Heartfelt thanks to KBRI Kuala LumpurTourism Indonesia for this kind opportunity
