We were looking to stay at some where other than Singapore to spend a few days while waiting for our plane back to Australia, as we have been travelling through India and Asia for the past five months. So we found the Goodway Hotel on the net and we thought we have not been there so lets go.
They say that they are four star, but we would put them an average three. They booked us into one room and we were nearly knocked over by the mildew, so we asked for another room and again a very strong mildew smell followed by a very loud air conditioner (in need of a new bearing) outside the window.
The staff were very obliging and the third attempt there was still a smell, but we took.
There is free LAN internet connection in the room and the beds are soft and comfortable.
The swimming pool area is pretty average.
The location is not too bad but Batam does not have that much to offer and I would not put it on the must see list. You possibly will need a visa on entry to Batam $10 USD for 7 Days or $25 USD for more, depending on your native country. Ferries run regularly from Johor Bahru and Singapore about $30 US each way, cheaper if you buy a return.
We can not up load any photos because we did not take any.
