Had a 3D2N stay at Formosa, with two friends. I was initially shocked at the exterior facade of the hotel, that seemed rundown. But we were blown with amazement with the standard of service from the staff, who were friendly and accomodating. The rooms were surprinsingly spacious. Tv cable shows were a delight. Great thing was the fact that Formosa... More

A group of us stayed at this hotel for our 2 days 1 night batam trip. We exceptionally loved the location as it was near Nogoya Shopping Center and a few others places like Lucky Plaza. Breakfast was excellent too. WIFI was great but only one person per room can login at one time. TV channels were plenty ranging from... More

this property has an unassuming facade but take a look inside and you will find a very imviting lobby (by batam standards). the rooms are huge but there is a little problem with the rooms located at the rear end of the building. most of them look out to a very desolate wall of the neighring block, which i personally...

Located in a walkable distance to Nagoya Hills Mall and right next it is Batam Lucky Plaza. Lucky Plaza is well known for it's competitive prices in latest gadgets and electronics. It will take approximately 15 minutes to reach Nagoya Hills Shopping Centre. For its location, it is really worth the money. The services were absolutely great when I was... More

Brought 10 of my office staff and stayed the weekend in Formosa Hotel, Batam. The hotel's room were clean, though the water pressure in the toilet is low. Breakfast is simple fare. The great selling point is its walking distance to Nagoya Hills shopping centre. Less than 10 minutes walk. The surounding area is safe and street food and even... More

A 2 days 1 night stay on the 16th July with my partner, & we were kind of disappointed with the view of the hotel from the outside. When we reached our destination, I thought the whole place, including the lobby, was almost totally different from the picture we were shown. When we first entered the room, the smell of... More
