As we reach there its still early before 2pm of the check in time, so we decided to go over to Nagoya hill shopping mall. Lucky there is a chinese front office staff at the counter... More

I was surprised by this hotel - one of the best I've stayed in Batam, and also one of the cheaper four star hotels. Check-in was quick, flawless, and the staff polite. My room was large and clean, and surprisingly for Batam, the water in the bathroom was consistently hot. The location is convenient for shopping and eating. I only... More

The room is big and clean. It is convenient to Nagoya Hills shopping and there is many food around this area. There are food stall opposite the hotels even after midnight. They sell fried fish and chicken which is very delicious. Must try.

The rooms are very big with plenty of space for moving around the room, we booked 3 rooms with one smelling of mold and all smelling of smoke.... As the night progresses, the smell of Camille gets worst as I think others smoke in their rooms and the smell gets carried around to all rooms, it's the same situation in... More

Not only air con but the bathtub is of bad maintenance as we need to request for the stopper to stop the water from... More
