Firstly, it has a great location - a 5-minute walk to the nearest clean massage parlours as well as BCS, the shopping mall that houses a movie theatre, supermarket, money changers, departmental store and reasonably good range of restaurants and eateries.
We stayed on the top floor (8th), and the room was big, with an L-shaped sofa and bathtub. However, the entire room is very retro-looking, and looks like it is stuck in the 80s. Oh! Maybe that is why it is called 89 Hotel :) . But that really is no issue because the room is pretty clean and the TV channel selection is decent. Bed was clean, towels were fine. Room service is affordable and very filling and our requests for free ice in a bucket was addressed promptly. Overall, excellent service from the reception to the room service staff to the restuarant. Which brings me to my next point.
The breakfast spread is much better than the other hotels we have stayed in at Batam. We are regular visitors and the fare offered for the breakfast buffet is really above average. The chef manning the live egg station was very humble and nice with our requests, although there was a slight language barrier.
The in-house massage spa on the 3rd floor of the hotel offers good service, with prices comparable to the parlours outside. You can book at your convenience and even request for in-room massages at a slightly higher price. But overall, the prices are reasonable. Saves you the time and effort of walking out to get a massage.
