Yet again, I stepped my foot on the familiar grounds of Batam. This time round, I look forward to staying at this new hotel that came up recently in the vicinity of Nagoya Hills.
A 50,000Rp taxi ride took me to Nagoya Mansion from Batam Centre. Arriving at the entrance, vehicles went through an undercarriage check before stopping at the lift lobby, right after the security check area. Taking the lift to the hotel lobby, we arrived at the hotel lobby for our check in. Pretty spacious lobby area with comfortable seating and the table for the welcome drinks were at the side, which it seemed, was self-service.
We got upgraded to a suite as we were told that the hotel is full and our booked rooms were not available, definitely no objections there! Located at the end of the corridor, we opened the door to our room. It was a two-bedroom unit and modernly designed. Plenty of space within and bedrooms were rather comfy too. The windows offered great views of the city and the sea.
As mentioned by other travellers, the bathroom does get a little flooded when you shower, but it did not bother me much. However, I did not really appreciate the window beside as it makes me feel kind of exposed. It wasn’t a clear window of course, but well……
Breakfast was rather average and the restaurant was quite small, though most of the staffs were good in their service attitude. You could have your meal alfresco by the pool too. The pool was not huge but they have a lifeguard on duty, which is a good thing.
The hotel is indeed located within walking distance to Nagoya Hills Mall but it may not exactly be easy for those with elderly or child. You will be walking on the road side for a bit, before you thread on a path lined by wild grass and strewn with litter. Then you could either walk on or turn right to a small road leading up to a mosque, then turning out left towards the mall again. Either ways will get you there.
It had been a good experience and while there could be some hiccups here and there with it being new, I think it have the potential to become one of the preferred hotels in Nagoya.
