Only 3 minute walk from Harbour Bay ferry terminal in a safe location (gated compound part of the Harbour Bay complex which includes a shopping mall, ferry terminal, hotels and commerical buildings). In the immediate vicinity, only Harbour Bay Mall which is sparsely populated with some retail shops. For real shopping you have to take a taxi (5 min, 40k rupiah) to Nagoya Hill.
For great and cheap seafood, walk 3 minutes to the Harbour Bay ferry terminal where there is a row of seafood restaurants popular with both locals and tourists. A good Chinese-style seafood meal for 2 costs around SGD 30, cheap by Singapore standards.
The hotel itself is new and in soft-opening phase. Rooms are large and comfortable with new fittings and furniture. The bed is huge and comfy. TV is really large as well. Bathroom is almost as big as a hotel room in Tokyo!
However, the quality of fittings in the bathroom are not so good for a new hotel (some wear and tear) though all in working condition.
Buffet breakfast was excellent with live cooking stations.
Overall, a good comfortable stay at very reasonable price. This hotel is definitely top in class in Batam, where most city hotels are rundown and old.
