Hi...me and my husband will be in Medan on 3rd-7th April 2007.
1.We want to over night at Berastagi on the 1st day.. Our problem now is, we couldn't find any hotel in Berastagi. Can anybody help us? My sister had been there last 2 years. She had stayed over there, but unfortunately she forgot the hotel's name. Please...can anybody help us?
2.Then on the 4th April we'v plan to go to Lake Toba. Does anyone know the Niagara Hotel in Lake Toba? We'v found this hotel in the Net. So, any idea about this hotel? Or does anyone can give us recommendation on hotel in Lake Toba?
FYI, we are going for our honeymoon...so,please....help us.
What sort of hotel and how much do you want to spend? I have a friend in Brestagi who will be able to help me give you a name, but need a price?
Do not know of the Niagra Hotel in Lake Toba. I stayed at Romlan on Lake Toba in September and loved it. Very cheap for really nice room and hot water and great food and lovely gardens.
My budget for accommodation in Berastagi is about Rp300,000.
U try look into http://www.niagaralaketoba.com, i found this hotel thru the internet...but i'm not so sure about the location. Any suggestion?
Will get back to you. I will sms Ramona my guide friend in Brestagi and see what he thinks would be a nice hotel for you both.
Will check out the hotel Niagra later- just busy with urgent emails now.
I'm waiting for your reply...
I did stay at Grand Mutiara in Brastagi but maybe little bit over your budget. try Sibayak Hotel. dont miss the volcano hot spring there at night specially.
Do note that Niagara Hotel located at the mainland (parapat) and not inside Samosir Island. The the hotel basicly ok as they are 4* rating hotel. If u looking for hotel in Samosir Island maybe other vts can help u.
Hope this info help n Enjoy ur trip.
My friend Ramona Ginting who is a guide in Berestagi sent me an email today with a list of hotels and comments.

You do realize it will be about a 2 hr bus trip to Brestagi from Medan- guess so if your sister has been there.
Brestagi is really nice- I only spent a weekend there in a back packer place , but it was so cool and relaxing compared to Medan so I think you have made an excellent decision to go there.
Not sure if this is helpful for you. May help your sister to remember by havng the names.
