Stay in this hotel for 2 nights(1 May to 3 May 2015). Initially We thought Batam accepted Sgd notes, but now eveywhere can only accept Rupiah. We had to go nearby Money changer at Ferry Terminal to change our Sgd notes to Rupiah. Pls remember to confirm your departure ticket at the ferry counter upon arrival on the first day.Hotel is just a walking distance from the ferry terminal. Took an escalator up to 2nd floor of terminal and there is a linkway to the opposite building. Upon reached the other end of linkway, there is no signage to the hotel. Just continue walking further along the dim walkway and you will see the hotel entrance with the security point. Check in was fast. I had request for turn down service on our online reservation,as its our wedding anniversary but hotel staffs did not provide any throughout our stay. Kinda disappointed . Maybe they should improve on this area. Other then this issue, Room is spacious and clean. Most important, Wifi is fast. Service is good. Staffs are attentive and friendly. Hotel security check at all entrances, feel safe staying in the hotel. I have done couple massage in the room and at Spa. Very good skilled masseurs. Hotel breakfast is good with wide selection of food. Nice ambience lobby and lounge. We took a Taxi to nearby Nagoya Hill shopping Mall, Rp 50k and back to hotel is Rp 60k. No problem finding food here, as there are many small cafes nearby at the Ferry terminal. In the evening, there are a few seafood restaurant along the sea beside the Ferry Terminal. Hawaii and Wey Wey are the 2 recommanded restaurants you should try. Price are quite reasonable. Do not be scare of by the priceless menu at Wey Wey. Initially we thought they might anyhow charged us expensive cos we are tourist, but our bill was quite cheap,consider we ordered steamed fish, sotong, veg, meat and two drinks (total S$35). Singaporeans should know how expensive to order a fish in our country. There is a OG supermarket beside Hotel (down escalator outside main hotel entrance). Did a last min shopping there.
