LOCATION: Extremely convenient, just have to cross a main road to get to nagoya shopping centre. (If i may add, the road is treacherous). It is at the right location, not too near the shopping centre but not too far. Which means that it is pretty quiet.
ROOMS: Was pleasantly surprised at how big the room was. I got a pretty big corner room for 70 per night. think they upgraded me for free as i booked online(through agoda). However, upon inspection, i found that there was a blood stain on the bedsheet. Got it changed. No big deal, just thought you guys should know. Also, i found a cockroach on my last night there. But overall, the room was pretty good. The shower head had some slight problem. Also, for some weird reason they were unable to provide us with a bathtub stopper. (weird). Bed was enormous. I think it was a king sized bed instead of a queen sized bed. hahah
RECEPTION: Duty manager was extremely helpful and friendly during check in. Let us check in 4 hours earlier with no extra charges(kudos to them!) However, upon check out there was a slight misunderstanding about the cup noodle. They said there was supposed to be one in the room, but we didnt see any. During check out, they asked us about it but we denied even seeing it cause it wasnt there. After awhile, they just let us go off. They should check their minibar more carefully.
TRANSPORT FROM HOTEL: Formosa hotel have several taxis and they are pretty safe. Just ask security guard or the front desk and they will get u a taxi. 50,000 rupiah to batam centre. A little more expensive but safer.
BREAKFAST: Extremely good, lots of variety to choose from. They even have tempura hahahaha.
All in all, felt that it was pretty good. will definitely go back there if i ever go back to batam.
