We stayed at Golden View Hotel for one night during our 2D1N trip in Batam - it was a tour package. We have been given a deluxe room - if I'm not mistaken - at level 9, facing the Golden Park, ponds, houses, and a beach from far away. The room was spacious and clean. Very minor stain on the blanket though. We slept tight that night, and there was no bed bug. Open WiFi signal was great. Everything was satisfactory, however, the towels really had strange stench. They just didn't smell nice. Besides, the two bottles of complimentary drinking water had strange stench too! Anyway, kettle was provided so water could be boiled at anytime. There was a nice pool yet we noticed people swimming in their normal attire, not swimsuit. Somehow, we got annoyed with that...
The nearby Golden Prawn Restaurant did not impress us. We didn't find the foods very delicious, some of the dishes appeared to be salty. It was the only restaurant in walking distance. There were a bar and a cafe - Cuppa Cafe - in the hotel though, meals could be ordered to be sent to room as well. Breakfast at Cuppa Cafe was average. Initially, we wanted to try some local food stalls at the street located just outside of the hotel premises, yet we were advised not to take those foods by tour guide to prevent unnecessary stomachache. Famous malls such as Nagoya Hill Mall and Batam Central Mall are very far from the hotel. Location wise, it was not that ideal. Reason being that there were abundant of interesting stuffs and foods in the malls, as well as various kinds of massage - especially Nagoya Hill.
