Stayed at Golden View Hotel recently - bought a deal online so cant choose the hotel. There were 3 of us so the room was huge with ample walking space. It had a 32" flat screen plasma tv with around 20+ channels. Toilet was quite alright - passable. Overall u can tell that the hotel is actually dated - the room carpet has some stains too, the shower curtain had red stains too (!). The walkway to the rooms was dimly lit. So can be quite eerie if u are alone, walking back to your room late at night.
Breakfast was so so. We went down for breakfast at 8am... and the food was icy cold even though there were warmers. Spread was decent with the usual noodles, nasi lemak, toast, eggs, fruits, porridge, baked beans, sauage, bacon, etc. Nothing fancy, enough to fill your stomach.
The hotel is located quite far away from the malls - but there's a shuttle bus to bring you to the nearest mall. Didnt get to try it out as we checked in quite late on day 1 and had to leave by mid the next day. There's a kueh lapis shop nearby so convenient for those who want to buy some back home. The hotel is surrounded by seafood place (not fancy though), go-kart, a small outlet selling some souvenirs, polo ralph lauren.... not much entertainment.
All in all, a decent stay. But I will most likely consider other accommodation elsewhere the next time i visit Batam.
