I was happy with the hotel for the price I paid. Check in was smooth, reception was extremely friendly and approachable. They will ask if u want smoking or non smoking room. Directed us to the party scene (kampong buleh) via walking when everyone else told us to take taxi. Pros: Room was big, smoking was allowed in rooms. TV... More

Wifi coverage was quite good in my room. Room size was quite spacious given the price that I paid for it. Location was good too as it is near shopping mall and eateries. Only thing was that the bath tub was really dirty so I didn't get to use it

The hotel has not changed for many years, except that some furniture has been replaced. The rooms are spacious, but with worn carpet and not too tidy. The reception staff speaks English and is helpful. During several stays I always slept well without interruption even though sometimes parties were going on. The hotel is located in the center of Batam... More

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.
