this property has an unassuming facade but take a look inside and you will find a very imviting lobby (by batam standards).
the rooms are huge but there is a little problem with the rooms located at the rear end of the building. most of them look out to a very desolate wall of the neighring block, which i personally found a bit depressing and hence left the curtain drawn all the time to hide the view.some of the other rooms near the karaoke area also can be noisy at night but this should not undermine the good value in terms of the size of the rooms and location of the property.
transportation connectivity is excellent - both taxis and local "angkut" which is good for the adventrous travellers as these converted mini vans can become very full,hot and hence uncomfortable.but they are so cheap...2000RP for rides around the nagoya region.
the furniture a at best functional with little attention to aesthetics.
the amenities provided in the room are sufficient, the bed linen and the towelling being more than adequate.
the staff are an asset of this property. staff morale is high as reflected in their pleasant attitude.
some reviewers of this hotel have adverse comments on the breakfast. i disagree. the breakfast provided is not luxurious but it defenitely more than good to get you going for the day.there is the onsite egg station, cereal station,bread and some danish (with toasting facilities). for the local fare there is congee(rice porridge)with all th econdiments, chicken curry, vegetables and couple of fried noodles. there is also juice station albeit with only one flavour.overall the breakfast is between good and excellent.
overall good value for money and the right place to stay for those interested in shopping ( at the nagoyal hill hyopermart, amere five minute walk0, entertinment like massage or karaoke. night street food is plentiful around the hotel .
