The big white monstrosity called Hotel Medan ended up with a large fishing boat out the front of it after the 2004 tsunami but these days shows no ill effects.
Surprisingly, the rooms here are quite neat and tidy and even feel comfortable to hang out in, which can't be said for some other hotels in town. All rooms come with air-con, TV (some LCD), comfy beds, free WiFi and private hot water bathrooms with Western toilet. Buffet breakfast is included in the tariff, making this hotel one of the better value options in town. If you're after a room with air-con, check this place out first as it really does stand out against the rest for its good value.
