Do you have other choices? I personally would not recommend if you are after those 5 star hotel standard. Maybe we were also unlucky as they hosted Sunday events.

I will pick a more resort hotel if its a relaxation trip. If your expectation is not high than yes... go. Its uite reasonably priced.

PS: Not sure which one I stayed... but I do think its the Harris. The one with a Japanese restaurant, a continential etc.... 3 restaurant in the hotel.. very communal style hotel.

Go for Harris, the pool is giant and new furniture even they serve cold towels with peanuts, i was there last week, staff excellent and food great.

Japanese suite is the best, even DVD player in the room and also outside bathtub, Give Harris a try is the post popular in batam and with international standards
