I have just finished my two days meeting in Harris Batam Center (in their Unique 2 room). The staffs were really helpfull to support our event. Our 1st day went smoothly, but on the next day, there's another event just beside our meeting room (Unique 1). They played music and we could hear it clearly which was very annoying! So if you are looking for a hotel to conduct your meeting in Batam, what we have been through should take into consideration.
Location wise, this hotel is great. It is next to International Ferry Terminal where the participants could easily go to Singapore to extend their stay after the meeting. Just opposite the hotel there's a mall having Strabucks, so we could ordered Starbucks for our meeting participants.
Food was basic, nothing special. Breakfast was really crowded, the place was a disaster in the morning.
15 people of us arrived at the same time from Jakarta. We ordered an airport pick up from Harris via Mr. Besrin, and we got a very poor bus condition! And..the bus was not there when we arrived. We were expecting there is someone from Harris who will pick up us from the airport. Nope! There was no one. Only the driver of the bus, who came late. Too bad the bus thing was our first impression of the service oh Harris Batam. And they disappointed us from the start.
I stayed in room 916, when taking shower, all of the place gets wet. I had to put a towel to ensure that the water didn't get out of the shower area.
I was the one from our company who choose this hotel for almost 100 people of our participant from all over Indonesia, and If I could only turn back time I would have chosen another hotel in Batam to conduct meeting.
Sorry Harris, this time you really dissappoint me!
