“I'll stay there again if i go to Batam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2010

Service = Good. Friendly n courteous.

Room = Okay..The bathroom not bad at all..(i've attached some pics for u to see)

Location= Its located in Nagoya where Batam's biggest(i think) shopping centre is at. Nagoya Hill Mall is just 5mins walk away. Its near Macdonald too. 15 - 20 mins away from Batam Center Ferry Terminal.

Price = SGD55 nett per night. (I think its better make a reservation through the phone..as i see the rates on the net is slightly higher.)

What i like most = u can call the masseuse to massage u n ur partner in ur own room for around SGD 20 for 1 hour.

Overall a good 1st time experience.

Convenient location, 10-15 mins walk to Nagoya Hill Shopping Centre. The rooms are neat and spacious. Basic toiletries are provided. Overall good for a night's accomodation and value for money.

a nice but older hotel... worn in places and devoid of customers...
Nice room... strangely smelly but hard to define... I think it was humidity... GREAT bed and staff kept the place clean and bed sheets crisp
What I enjoyed was Dodi, the Concierge and his fellows who were polite and helpful.. a lone white man passing time in Bataam - they made me have fun. brought the bad copy Rolex - ate some 'interesting food'... and just pottered...
I like this hotel as the staff made it home for my long weekend away from KL...

The hotel is conveniently located in the shopping area on the left and right. Money changers, massage and restaurants, beauty salons are within walking distance. A short walk from the hotel will bring you to the big Nagoya Hill Shopping Complex, where you can find more shopping and cinema. To get to the hotel from the Megamall Batam, the shopping mall opposite Batam Centre ferry terminal, you can hop on the free bus service. All you have to do is only showing a till receipt of Rp10,000 spent in the mall. If you're in a hurry, you can just grab some takeaway from the A&W and show it to the information counter of Batam Megamall. The bus is a joint-operation between Batam Megamall and some hotels in Batam (such as Island Garden and Nagoya Plasa as well).
At night you can walk towards the direction of Nagoya Hill Shopping Complex, where you can find the chicken and mutton satay nightstalls as well as murtabaks.
