The Hills is one of the oldest hotel in Batam, the cleanliness the room no good enough. the bedroom was poor, the towel not clean. Not many choices for the breakfast and the taste was very standard, nothing special. Despite all of that near Nagoya Hill Mall was the only plus thing.

It's definitely in need of a major refurbishment or a change of management. The towels were coffee latte tone rather than white which was rather a put off. Was tempted to run across to Nagoya mall to buy a new set of bath towels. breakfast choice was dismal and uninteresting. The only saving grace of this hotel is the perfect... More

The Hills is in decline, and whilst the staff are helpful and polite, the accommodation and associated facilities are showing advanced signs of sharp decline. The spacious smoke filled lobby is forever occupied by loitering taxi drivers and people who clearly have no business at the hotel. Dodgy. The standard rooms are small, dated, dingy, dank, and overpriced. Bathroom is... More

The Hills (previously known as Puri Garden) has a beautiful facade, with its Balinese decorations style. Compared to other hotels in Batam, one can see that more thoughts are given into its design. Too bad the building is quite old and seems like no recent renovation efforts have been done. The first things that struck me when I stepped into... More
