We stayed here for a night on Sunday under a Batam Tour Package. Check in was efficient and fast and welcome drinks immediately offered. It was a quiet day when we arrived and not many guests stayed here that day.
The outside of the hotel looks old but inside is actually quite grand and clean. Rooms are Novotel standard, seems like renovated not very long ago. King size bed huge, clean and comfortable. Plenty of TV channels, including Singapore channels, international channels, HBO, Star Movie as well as their local channels. Wifi is also free and signal strength quite good.
Our room was on the 4th level but the corridor smells, don't know why. There is a sitting area outside the lift on level 4 with a mini library.
Dinner and breakfast at The Square was very good. Some items were on 50% discount for Sunday. After 7 pm, the Cafeteria offers slice cakes at 50% discount and whole cake at 30% off. We bought a nice cheese cake and brought it back to Singapore without any problem. We also bought a kuey lapis at Diana during our tour which cost $25.
The hotel provides shuttle service to Nagoya Hill and Batam City Square and other areas around town. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Front desk staff helped me called the travel agent to send me our ferry tickets. We took the hotel arranged taxi to Batam Centre Ferry terminal which cost 80K rp. Might be slightly more expensive but the vehicle is big and clean and driver very careful.
While the location may not be very near town, Novotel is really a very good business hotel. If arriving at the Waterfront ferry terminal, Novotel is just a short walk away in about 10 minutes. Will likely stay here again should we visit Batam for the service, comfort, quietness and a good night sleep.
