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

It was my birthday few days back, my friends and i happened to celebrate it at batam. We looked through agoda for affordable hotel price a night.

I only spent an overnight in Batam visiting a friend there. As I was on a budget trip I was very happy to find a great deal on Agoda. Upon check in the receptionist told me that I booked a room with no window ( I was not aware of it) and they think I won't like it so the... More

We stayed at room 253 & it was a great disappointment due to poor air-con maintenance. Didn't had a good sleep. This is the second time we stayed and encountered the same problem about the air-con. 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

17 of us checked into 8 rooms on 11 Jan. The rooms are brighter now. The Deluxe room is big ( with 2 super single beds, two couches and a coffee table ). Breakfast is normal. But I don't like the fried dry mee which they served and the fish cutlets was very dry. I like the cakes which they... More

This hotel has a strategic location which is near to the Nagoya Shopping area (about 5-7mins of walk) and also near to the markets, eateries, pastry shops, computer mall and mini-marts, which is very convenient. From the exterior of the hotel, it does not look big in size or classy but once you walk into it, its a different world.... More

I was in Batam for 2 days of golfing at Indah Puri Golf Resort so stayed in town for 1 night as there was nothing to do at the Golf resort. Nothing special about Famosa. It's old but the location was good with shopping malls, restaurants, shops and lots of Indonesian and Thai massage within walking distance. CG

This is my 2nd time staying in this hotel . The hotel has been refurbished with new carpets and laminated walls . This time we stayed in a Famiy room which is spacious and comfortable for the 3 of us . The wifi connection is fantastically strong and no problem accessing the Internet . Must also applaud the improved buffet... More
