Paid about USD75/night; stayed 3D2N with my in-laws and 7yo kid. Receptionist spoke reasonably good English. Room is on the 3rd floor, overlooking the pool. All rooms are smoking rooms; no 'non-smoking' rooms.
Furnishings indeed old (as many reviews here stated). Bed is pretty soft and caused me quite bad backaches. Furnishings in the washroom are really pretty old and yellow-stained.
Though Nagoya Hill is about 10 minutes stroll from the hotel, I find it not worthwhile to risk walking through the crazy traffic; paid about Rp50000 for the cab fare per trip to Nagoya Hill instead. Cab fare to Batam Centre Ferry Terminal (BCFT) from the hotel is about Rp85000, as compare to Rp70000 from BCFT to the hotel.
Breakfast for the 2 days are pretty much the same; nothing to compare. Spread is simple but sufficient: eggs station, cereal, pastries, plain rice, noodles/kuay teow, fish/chicken, corn porridge etc.
What I do like is that during the complimentary breakfast, tables are separated into the 'smoking' and 'non-smoking' zone.
In a nutshell, I will probably not return. For a price of USD75/night, I guess there are several other options to select from.
