“Old facilities”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

I stayed few weeks at Harmoni Suites and I can say that the facilities are old: a broken chair in my room; the bathtub tap didn't work; the bathroom floor was continuously flooded; etc.

The good things are the staffs kindness and ability to communicate in a good English.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

If you are coming from elsewhere in Indonesia, this place will seem expensive. However, it is primarily aimed at Singaporean travelers and thus is very cheap by those standards.

With that in mind, you're looking at about $50/night depending where and how you book. For that you are getting a beautiful hotel with elegant lobby and interior, quiet, and nice. The staff is attentive and gracious and speaks perfect English.

The location is 5 mins walk from Najoya Hill Mall, the premier shopping attraction on Batam. It is also about equidistant from the other main centers of the northern part of the island so you are nicely situated. This is a city hotel so if you're looking for a beach resort, head on over to Nongsa.

Transport is easy with everyone honking at you trying to give you a ride. There are also minibuses.

There's a pub in the hotel and a restaurant. I only tried the free breakfast buffet and while the setting is very nice, they were out of many things by 8am and didn't replenish.

The rooms are fantastic and a relief from staying in Singaporean broom closets at twice the price (or more). Crisp, clean sheets, cable, free wi-fi, mini fridge, nice bath, hair dryer.

I loved this hotel.

Room Tip: They all have pretty ugly views so maybe just choose one not on the busy ground floor.

Harmoni Group has 3 accommodations on Batam Island – Harmoni Hotel, Harmoni Suites and Harmoni One. While the 1st two are located quite close, along Jalan Imam Bonjol ( approximately 5-10 minutes drive ), Harmoni One is in Batam Centre.

This review is for Harmoni Suites – it is also known to be located in Nagoya.

The hotel’s location is within walking distance of amenities – plenty of shops next to the hotel itself. A mere 5 minutes walk across the main road and you will arrive at a huge open air food court area – they even have a stage ( although there was no performances when I was dining there ). There are plenty of stalls around which should cater to majority of the taste buds.

The hotel itself is nice; the staffs were rather pleasant and helpful. Checking in was quick and efficient. At the centre of the hotel is the restaurant / coffee house area. It is sort of an open concept area whereby the balconies on all floors are facing this area. Therefore, even if you are on the top most floors, you can see the restaurant from the floor balcony. Due to this huge open space area, the air can be pretty stale, and most importantly, it takes tremendous amount of air conditioning to keep the area cool and pleasant. I dread to think what would happen if the air cond fails.

The hotel building is relative square in shape. Try to get the rooms above the main lobby – this is facing the main road, or the ones to the right as you enter the lobby – this is facing the parking area. The ones on the left ( like mine ) is facing another building, and if the level is high enough you can see the rooftops. From my room, I can see the occupants on the next building attending to their washing in the morning, and hanging up their washed clothes on the rooftop. Not quite a pleasant view, and also for privacy purposes.

The room is pretty small, but cozy. There is kitchenette in the room, with the basic utensils. You will have a kettle, 2 cookers, a microwave, a fridge, some pots and pans etc. So if you need to heat up some take away meals, or do simple cooking of instant soup, for example, it can be done easily.

Wood is extensively used for the furniture – even the headboard has a wooden crafted on it. The chairs are also of wooded frame. Similarly, the built in cabinets are all with wooded frame and doors. Perhaps, this is to reflect the local architecture. Personally, I quite like the idea of this sort of conditions / arrangements rather than the modern type of furniture with plenty of glasses and metals. Somehow the decoration inside the room was cosy and pleasant. The sort of ambience which I found is quite welcoming. The air conditioning was cool and quiet. The toilet has a bathtub with good water pressure.

The breakfast spread is pretty good, plenty of choices to fulfill guests requirements. Not as extensive to some of the 5 stars hotels, but it is more than enough with a number of varieites.

I have been to Batam a few times prior many years ago and have stayed in various hotels, but I will stay at this hotel again in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms lower floor, nearer to the coffee house - can get free wifi
