I expected the Harris hotels to be 4- star hotels in all locations, but I wonder if this is the case with Harris Hotel Batam Center. First the good things: the service was very good. All staff youthful, smiling and polite. Really a very nice first impression, which continued throughout the visit. Breakfast was also very good, catering for both western and Indonesian tastes. The bed was comfortable, and the linen quality was good. There were surprisingly many healthy options in the restaurant menu.
Then the negatives. The room size was OK, but it was very empty; there was a place reserved for sofa, but nothing was there. The interior was not of 4- star quality, quite cheap materials were used in many places. The AC was very loud. I said that the linen quality was good, but unfortunately it was dirty! Spotty all over. The same thing went with the towels, which were gray, ont white anymore. The room lighting was inadequate - very difficult to work at the desk. The hotel was almost full when I was there and the waiting times for elevators were unacceptably long. In the (very small) gym, the treadmill was not functioning properly. And all in all, the lack of maintenance could be seen in many places, even if the hotel is relatively new.
But I recognize that I may be alone in my relatively negative appraisal, since the hotel was almost full...
