Impressive looking hotel with a very spacious lobby and spacious rooms (our standard room was spacious, so I'm presuming all their rooms are). At first glance the hotel looks new, but it's probably a few years old, judging by the peeling paint around the place and oldish looking rooms - carpet in the room wasn't very clean looking but the rest of the room was presentable enough. Complimentary mineral water and 2 cans of soft drink provided, along with the usual tea & coffee sachets. Bathroom & shower were not too bad, with strong water pressure. Hotel restaurant was a joke - there was hardly anyone there, yet they were out of fish. We then ordered steak and after asking a few times for steak knives, were told that they did not have any steak knives! Had to struggle cutting the steak with a butter knife. The cooks were not at all prepared for the breakfast crowds and we had to queue almost half an hour for eggs and another half an hour for waffles, while they ran out of coffee, tea, milk, etc etc etc and took forever to replenish everything. Food at the newly opened Chinese restaurant was really yummy and very reasonably priced. Tried ear candling & a massage at the spa... cheap but definitely NOT good, yet the staff hang around outside your cubicle expecting a tip! The hotel is not in a convenient location and there is absolutely nothing to do around the area. The nearest shopping centre is a hot, humid, dusty 20 minute walk away (or 5 minutes by car) and is not near any of the lovely beaches this island has to offer. Batam has LOTS of hotels and we'll find somewhere else to stay if we should visit again.
