I recently started a new job in Sumatra and the company put me up at the Aryaduta. I had no pre-conceived expectations but to be honest, I wasn't expecting much. I was very pleasantly surprised however, when the shuttle car dropped me off outside a clean and well maintained foyer area and I was met by extremely polite and friendly staff. I tought it a little odd that reception is on the 9th floor but the porter explained that the accommodation comprises three floors atop a shopping centre.
The girls at reception were pleasant, polite and efficient and the room was more than adequate for my one night stopover. The bed and pillows were comfortable, the bathroom clean and the cable TV had a good selection of English language channels.
The restaurant was clean, well presented and efficiently staffed. The breakfast buffet was quite adequate to suit both Asian and Western palates.
The only negatives I can make is that there was nowhere convenient to place my suitcase without it being in the way and there seemed to be a problem with the aircon control - I had a cold at the time and didn't want it too chilly but the control seemed to keep "defaulting" back to 18 degrees (this could just be my misunderstanding of how to set it).
I will be happy to stay there again when I next pass through Medan.
