I selected a Deluxe room and it was mostly comfortable if minimalistic....but, then again, it is only a 3 star hotel. The bathroom was only deserving of a 1 star hotel though with only cold running water to the vanity unit and then via a 15-second on only public toilet kind of push-tap. uggghhh REALLY?!! Bring your own soap and toiletries as those supplied are not really adequate.
Reservation, concierge, restaurant and bar staff are all friendly and professional and willing to serve; better than could be expected of a 3 star hotel.
Location is good though being only a 10 min drive to Nagoya Hill shopping mall & about 30 mins from the airport.
A general point to note about Batam is that there are no / no legitimate taxis; they're all "taksi liar" which means that you need to know about how much it's going to cost to get to a place or be a very good negotiator to ensure you don't get ripped off. Rp70k to / from airport via the hotel 'transport' service; Rp30k to Nagoya Hill & Rp50k to Batam Centre mall / My Mart.
