This was the fourth hotel we stayed in Medan and the second in the city. We just wanted to try a different place and fortunately, this one was better than the first one. Grand Impression Hotel is located by the main road and is attached with a supermarket on the ground floor. Other than that, it is also near to the market.
In the evening, you could walk along the shops opposite the hotel. We did not really have the time to see if there was anything interesting but we managed to go there once and there were many shops selling all kinds of shoes.
Another reason the hotel could be a good choice was because of its reasonable price.
