Carolina Hotel is probably the best place to stay in Lake Toba, because of the excellent location and the cheap price of the rooms. Located right in front of the Lake, you can get there directly by boat, as there is a small pier where boats stop on request. Rooms are simple but spacious and clean. We stayed in a superior room, which was unfortunately in front of the restaurant, which hides the lake view and from where you can hear all the noises of the kitchen until late. The standard rooms are certainly more quiet and with a better view on the lake, but probably they are very simple inside.
From there you can go for a walk around Tuk Tuk and easily reach good restaurants. Staff are very kind and helpful. They can help you to rent a car or a motorbike on request or to organise tours. The restaurant has a beautiful view on the lake and the menu is quite rich. Breakfast is not included in the room price, but it is extremely cheap. It is not possible to pay by credit card and there is no ATM machine on the island so bring enough cash!
