“The last minute choice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We actually went to Batam without making any prior reservations of any hotel. Unfortunately it was on a weekend and we failed to realise that everywhere would have been fullybooked. Our friend who lived in Batam had to drive us around, looking for a hotel for a night's stay at past 11pm. Hotel Utama was obviously our last destination and we managed to book a family room that was fitted with 2 queen beds. On top of that, we got 2 extra single mattresses brought in so that the room fit 7 people.

The staff were accommodating and they provided all the extra pillows, towels and toiletries that we required. The room rate was affordable, considering that it was about S$80+before adding the extra beds.

The location was kinda near a club, can't remember what it was called though.

Despite its lack of exterior grandeur, this hotelmprovides dec3nt room, quite clean but oldy, its close distance to batam's business area is a privilege, so for the money you pay, you get your share of quality, not too shabby, just ok to stay unless you r looking for facilities to enjoy in the hotel

Went there with our preschool child...our experience are as follow:

Cleanliness:terrible....the bathroom tiles are dirty..water seeps out whenever you use the bathtub and that makes the floor area kinda flooded..if you are not careful enough..you may slip and fall.
If there are any beverage spill..they don't bother to clean it...the cups were unwashed...the room floor are dirty(after so called daily room service cleaning)

Bed sheets are quite in a bad shape...it makes you itch as the surface of the bed sheets has been damaged...

Food:average

Staff: some housekeeping staffs and F&B Staff are helpful but the laundry service are horrible...no proper care for the garments...but if you have no choice but to send it ...pls don't ..as there is no laundry list for you to leave a special instruction..they only provide the laundry bag but no laundry list for you to inform them in anything in regards to the laundry matters

Location:very near to DC mall...quite far from Nagoya hill(matahari shopping mall)

Ambience: neutral....



No Internet connection...however are generous with mineral water

Not recommended at all

Stayed here with my family and relatives for my mum's birthday. My auntie arranged for us.

Nice cozy hotel located near DC mall. I dont fancy that mall as i prefer Nagoya mall instead. But then location was good for all my family members.

Hotel is cheap n busy with free internet access all around the hotel. There is massage parlour but nothing like a true spa like tempat senang, secret spa n so on. Karaoke lounge is available at the lobby. Many choices of music you can choose from like in SG. Breakfast and overall service of staffs was good too. Security of hotel is good too.

Ask me if i would stay there again....yes with my family of course hehe....

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

We booked 2 rooms a family suite and a junior suite. Both rooms were simple. There is no swimming pool. Though there is a jucuzzi just 2 both separated from each other male in a room and female in the other. We were given just 2 breakfast coupons for the family room and 2 for the junior room. Though the rooms were for 4 persons and 3 respectively. Rooms number 321 and 322 were not that big. As said in agoda website it was suppose to be 56 sqm which seemed to About 25sqm only. However it was alright but not what I expected. The prices seems to be the same booking directly from utama walk in rate.

Room Tip: Room 321 junior suite was 1 queen and 1 single bed. Room 322 family suite was 2queen size bed room...
