Overnight Day 3: Depart to Berastagi. Si piso-piso waterfall, Gundaling Hill. Overnight in Berastagi. Day 4: Depart to Medan.

Why I can't find any feedback or review on this hotel compare to other hotels in medan? Can only gather from the website that it is 5 mins away from the airport. Is it safe to stay there as we got worry when we will told by the travel agency in singapore that we may be staying there during our travel in medan. No one want to write about this hotel though Polonia Hotel should be around for quite some time. I not expecting fantastic feedback to ease my concern but at least this should be a safe, acceptable and comfortable hotel to stay to earn itself a 4-star status hotel in indonesia. Can anyone throw some light on this hotel. Honest and prompt feedback please as we are leaving soon for medan. Thanks
