Mercure Batam is a simple hotel in a place where you're probably not planning to spend a lot of time in a hotel. Everything about this property screams average, but good enough for the price you pay. I had some difficulties during check-in since the hotel didn't have my online reservation on their database, and I thought they didn't handle that very well but at least I could use the lobby internet while I waited.
In general the hotel is a little old, and that includes the room, and there's very little to do in the surrounding area. Service isn't always with a smile either.
If you want to hit the mall or the nightspots you'll have to take a taxi to Nagoya. This is a short 10-15 min drive but taxis are a real ripoff in Batam as they don't seem to use meters. Anyway it was only a short trip and I did have one of the best massages ever at Spa Secret so was happy enough. 3 stars for this average hotel.
