“decent place with value for money..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

i stayed here during march,2013 on a pleasure trip and found this to be a good place to stay. well maintaned rooms with a spacious balcony, good food, ideal location and courteous staff. however, they do not have a safety locker in the room and has to use the one near the reception.

Stayed 2 nights, it's a 3min drive from ferry terminal. 5min to Nagoya Hills Mall.
Allowed to check in early. Staff friendly. Pool was nice. Breakfast spread was good, they change the menu as well over the 2 day stay. Overall satisfied!

Negative-
1- if u are a light sleeper-ask for room on higher floor , as there is a band that plays till way past midnight! but we were tired so it didnt bother me juz knocked off!
2-No food stall around u only have room service if u stay in. else u gotta take cab out
3- More lighting along pathway to swimming pool would be appreciated! n also they need to clear food left by guest at pool table asap as a super size rat came by to pick on the food, my gal keep looking out for the rat! no peaceful swim :)

We stayed here through deal.com. Was very satisfied with the hotel staff, they were helpful and always smiling.

The buffet breakfast was superbly nice. There was great spread although it was coming from a 3star hotel.

There was a pool, but no pool for my son. Pool was so-so cos e water was quite murky.

Room was nice,but e only downfall was e smell of e carpet. Smelly. Hope something can be done. Bed was clean and comfy, water heater was great.

we got around by e hotel's cab, but they charge differently. We booked two cabs but one charge 80000Rupiah e other 70000 Rupiah to same destination.

Overall, great stay. :)

Then after we got the room,we come to the room at 5th floor the room number is 505 then we just say its so “fantastic” room.we had a good view from there.the room was very clean,toilet was good with all of the amenities.oh,,,its so feel like in the heaven.

The reception was very friendly,they are full of smiles whenever we asked about anything that we needed...good job team.

Buffet breakfast was completed with all kind of menu,juices is always change in every single day.o,,yah...I forgot something,when the process check in the first day,when we wait for the room we do the breakfast at the restaurant.there is a staff whos the name is Herman if I’m not wrong,he is so friendly staff.

Check out process was so easy,we just have to return back the key room and take it back our deposit money then go.same like what we do at our home..haahaa..thank a lot team for the great service you guys give to us.

My girlfriend and I stayed in this hotel through a groupon deal. The staff is very friendly. The room and bed is comfortable. The dinner meal wasn't that great as it looked like the meal was reheated in the microwave (Chicken and rice is dry). The breakfast buffet is perfect and I was really impressed. There is a taxi stand right in front of the hotel but there is hardly anything to do for a tourist in Batam. Overall the pros outweighs the cons and it was a great experience for us.

I stayed 2d1n (2-3 February 2013) at this hotel. It was a pleasant stay.

Arrived at the hotel at 12pm and we were allowed to check in early without any fee. So relieved as we were tired from the one hour ferry ride earlier on. There is this weird smell, probably from the carpets, when we go to our room. But after opening the windows for ventilation, it is okay. So no complaints. Room was clean, basic toiletries was given. Toilet space was a-okay for me. Bed was comfortable enough. Complimentary tea/coffee, water bottles, water boiler was given to make hot drinks/cup noodles. Cable TV was provided, so we are still able to watch Malaysian/Singapore channels.

The reception was very friendly, full of smiles whenever we asked for guide to the malls and taxi price ranges. Feel so much at home.

Buffet breakfast spread was good. Scrambled eggs(of your choice, made on the spot), noodles, steamed rice, bread(can be toasted), bread spreads, chicken, fish, cereals, milk, coffee/tea, juices, fruits, salad, steamed red bean buns, porridge, green bean soup and some pastries. All was good. The lady offered to toast for us the bread, which is such a pleasant gesture. Really appreciate it.

Check out was efficient, was returned our deposit fee and got our taxi right outside the hotel in less than 1 minute.

Excellent customer service. Staff were full of smiles. I am happy. :)
