"I decided to book this place because I wanted to chill out, have a few nice days in tuk tuk. Booked it because I’m the pictures it actually looks pretty nice, but that’s not really the case 🤷🏼‍♂️ I think it’s been created from another hotel ruins called ambarosa, the whol dining room is quiet with its lights turnt off most of the time, the staff are sometimes available, sometimes not and the room is clean-ish The floor had a bunch of stuff on it, the balcony was dirty and the toilet room wasn’t too appealingz For the price I can’t blame too much but there’s nicer places, across Indonesia and Asia for the same price which are much, much nicer “. I’d suggest trying to stay closer to the town too, maybe Roplan area? "

"My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights. Pros: Our room was just beside the lake, with great view and nice breeze. There are some tables and chair outside the room to relax and just enjoy the lake breeze. It's just a very basic hotel and nothing much to expect from it, given that we only paid RM225(USD55) for 2 nights. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. He helped us to get a driver for a day tour around Samosir and also assisted us to book our bus transportation back to Medan. Breakfast was good, not buffet, there's a menu to choose from, offering both western and local food. Cons: There's no fan installed in the room, it can be a little stuffy and warm at night when you close the curtains. If you open them, the mosquitoes will come in. Also, the water heater is not working at times. Both our blankets and towels had stains on them. Overall, I would say it's satisfactory. Not too good and not too bad. "

"Everything is almost perfect about this hotel. There is nothing I can complaint about. The room is very clean, the garden and surrounding is nice. The bed is sooooo comfortable until I feel like I didn't want to wake out of the bed. The receptionist is friendly. This place is just perfect for whom who seeks quiet and peaceful surrounding. If I were to repeat the trip to Toba Lake, I definitely will stay again in Toba Village Inn. There was a bad experience when we were about to take a ferry from Parapat to Samosir Island. We were approached by one Batak guy when we were still on the ferry. He asked us where to stay (he works with Samosir Villa and hopes that we could follow him to check in at Samosir Villa, hence hires him as a tourist guide when we were in Samosir). When I said I'll stay at Toba Village Inn and already booked the hotel through Agoda, he suddenly get mad and angry. He said, when the tourists booked everything through the Internet, they are actually close the opportunity for the local people to get a job. He scolded me and said, "next time, don't come here at all!!!". 2 to 3 times he said such thing. And he kept on nagging about the Internet thing. I feel so furious!!! How can a local people said something like that to the tourists?? We spent our money at your place, how dare you said something rude and unwelcome words to us!! We have the right to book our hotel through Agoda or local people. It's our money anyway. Except from this incident, I'm really happy with my stay in Samosir Island."

"I really enjoyed my stay. First i like the part that the boat from Parapat stop in front of the hotel. Easy to check in. The staff Ribka (Rebecca) and Daniel was so accomodating. The room is so clean. No aircond because the temperature is cold and suitable for sleeping. The hotel is 4 stories so you have to go up and down staircase to go have breakfast or to the receptionist. But i have no problem with that. Eventhough the breakfast is simple but all are delicious. I especially like the fried tempe. The view is spectacular. There is swimming pool too or you can swim or kayak in Lake Toba just in front of the Hotel. Ribka arranged a motorbike rental for us too. They even packed our breakfast because we need to take the earliest ferry. I am a frequent traveller and this is our 8th anniversary trip. I was really happy during my stay and will be back to Zoe’s Paradise if i plan to come to Pulau Samosir again. Never wrote this long review for any hotel but this place is so worth it"

"Samosir Cottages was the best hotel we stayed during our 2 week holidays in North Sumatera. we really had the best experience there. The hotel was modern, clean with good facilities such as 2 nice and clean swimming pools with gorgeous view over lake Toba, big, nice restaurant, nice comfortable terraces to enjoy the beauty of Lake Toba,table tennis. We could also enjoy live music on Wednesday and Saturday evenings in the restaurant. The room was nice, clean with a bath tub, tv, balcony and very comfortable bed and linen of high quality and long desk, many electricity power plugs, and a fan. They did not provide AC since it was cool there. The room was quiet since it was not so close to the lake but we could enjoy the best view of the lake from their nice terraces. We are looking forward to staying at this hotel again in the future. Thank you Samosir Cottages and Agoda who had given us nice rate. "
