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

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

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
