The hotel is in Nagoya city centre of Batam.It is about 20 minutes from city centre ferry terminal and 700K Rupees by taxi. The hotel is bit old but the price is reasonable. Friendly front service with staff able to speak English and Mandarin. Breakfast average. The bedroom is spacious but a bit old.

Staying at this property over a long weekend, I was underwhelmed from the moment I arrived. The property is old which does not necessarily mean bad but it was old in a way that meant the hotel felt very very tired. Decor aside the set up was not fantastic and the greeting on welcome left alot to be desired. On... More

We reached at 2pm to check in and was asked to wait an hour and a half because the previous guest has not left the room. No apologies were made. I didnt mind the ignorant behavior, especially when I paid $43 per night, but when I got to the room I wasnt pleased at all. Just a heads up, if... More

I booked via booking.com and stayed here for 2 nights with my other 2 friends. The taxi fare from Batam Centre to Formosa Hotel (vice versa) cost 70,000 rupiah. No doubt the hotel staff are very friendly too. Our checking in process went smoothly. Room size was spacious with 1 single bed and 1 queen bed for the 3 of... More

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
