Went to holiday inn for 3 days 2 nights at waterfront, From there we went tO harris hotel at batam centre. We were trying to extend our visit at harris but there's no more vacancy.. So we went to the travel agency at batam ferry terminal to find any available hotels but all are fully booked as we wanted to stay 1 more extra night at any five/four star hotel, the travel agency recommended "goodway" and told us it is a four star hotel. So we paid n check out from harris hotel at 2pm. We went shopping till 11pm and reached "goodway" around 11.20pm..
I must say, i was not impressed when i reached the hotel as im used to 4 and 5 star hotel which is up to my expectation. To go to the room we had to go round three times as the hallway is so long and keep turning. Finally we reached our room at the end of the hallway.. I was disgusted with the smell coming out from the room when i entered it.! The decorations are so old that i wonder if i travel back in time? And thing is , the shoe closet is seriously behind the door, and if u open the closet to put in shoes, people have to wait outside the room as the door cant be open!! The tv is so small n old square box tv, like hello, we r living in a modern age, n here u r with an old tv set like its from the 90s? Even the furniture is old and ugly!!! Lucky we reached there nearly midnight and stayed there till 9am!!!
The toilet is seriously disgusting tO the max!!!! It is so dirty and rusty and old that i feel threaten to even step in it!! Had to wash the whole toilet and so many brown gunk came out from the toilet bowl rim on the floor that i nearly cried with disgust as i dont know if it's waste or what!!!!!!!!!! The shower and water smelled of rust and there is no hot water!! I had to hOld my urine and not shower and just go to sleep, in the morning, i had to wipe myself with bottle water filled with my own body soap n wipe myself clean with wetwipe as im too disgusted to go in the toilet!
The room's air conditioner is noisy it sounded like a clock bell! The bed is yucky! The blanket have a brown stain!! U shd just closed down this hotel business and demolish it!! Worst hotel i ever been too!!! And i nearly cried from disgust and irritated from this junk hotel!!!! No wifi at all, lousy, and dusty!!! The carpet have a wet musty smell, the tap water smell of rust when i was brushing my teeth in the morning that i nearly gagged and had to use my bottle water to rinse out my toothpaste n wash my face as i dont trust the rusty smelling water which made me gagged!!!
Dont EVER come to thIs hotel as you will seriously regret it!!! Better off with holiday inn at waterfront and harris at batam centre.! I will nvr go again even if it's free and till now i'm cursing the travel agency for recommending this hotel.!! Thank god we stayed there less then 12 hours or i will die of misery!!!!!
Unlike holiday inn and harris, this hotel is so smelly and musty!! Holiday inn and harris have a nice touch of orange and lemon aromatherapy permeates through the entire hall, lobby, and room!! Unlike goodway, it is so stinky!!!!!!!!
