“ORANGE UNFORGETTABLE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

This is our first time
We check-in on 17/03/2012 with my husband. Located nearby Batam center ferry terminal, just 3 minutes walking, Mega mall just opposite.

Hotel is new and so colorful, everyone smile, with high 5 welcoming , very different with others hotel. when we arrive at 10am so many queue since it was weekend. we do understand our check-in time at 2 but The big Point is The male reception (that maybe in charge as a cashier because there was signed ''check out'' in front of him) serve us for check-in. if not wrong his name MANROO

After do registration he ask us to wait in sofa, just one minute after he come with bring our key card, we are so surprised, so fast and courteous since many guest wait for that, maybe that's why he ask my husband and i wait in sofa. Well trained. Thank you very much

We got sea view on 7'th floor, with amazing view, Bed so cozy, i like the aromatherapy in room. now we are at Nagoya since my husband have meeting with his client, i felt so different atmosphere.

however we will back again with our family and let our friends know about Harris Hotel Batam Center.

This hotel is not just filled with friendly and warm staff, there are great fire performances and the famous Harris Dance too. You can choose to join in the dance just for the fun of it, even if you know nuts about the steps. Talking about convenience, there is a batam centre mall just opposite the hotel, the ferry terminal beside it, a gym and swimming pool inside the hotel and even spa right at your room! The constant breeze brings about the scent of the sea, bringing away the stress and tension from the mind.

I encountered some problems with a leaking air con during my first night, but thanks to the efficient crew, the problem was quickly resolved in an instant. I do appreciate their effort of trying to resolve any issues as soon as possible. The only thing I was not expecting is the absence of bathtub and the quality of the food I tried was slightly above average.

Special Thanks to a lot of the crew members, including but not limited to:
Yanto - For helping us with the room arrangement and answering some little queries we had.
Iwan - The photographer capturing the brightest smile from all the patrons of Harris.
Dino - For trying his best in uploading the video of Harris Dance.
Diah - For helping with some of the pre-trip arrangement.
The air-con technicians - For their efficiency.
The reception crews - For offering to help us with the ferry booking.

Last but not least, Mr Stylianos - A great host who is welcoming and generous, making the stay utmost comfortable for us. Will be visiting this wonderful place again... =)

Room Tip: Choose lower rooms for higher water pressure in bathroom, and higher rooms for breath taking views.

The hotel is located next to the ferry terminal & I simply love the view of my room facing the sea. I love the simplicity of the room, white yet radiating with shades of orange & lime green. The service is efficient & the crew is friendly & helpful. However, there is great room for improvement in their F&B.

Harris is a pretty new establishment, and it's located right next to the Ferry Terminal. Very convenient and easy to get to.

Staff are all very friendly and cheerful, also generous with their 'high-fives'! Upon check-in, we were promptly presented with a cold towelette, welcome drink (so refreshing), and the cookie jar at the counter was up for grabs. You MUST have the cookies, absolutely delicious.

The room was of average size, nothing to complain about the room since the hotel is pretty new. However, we were on the 2nd floor and over-looking the pool (small-sized facing the waterfront), Saturday night was impossible to have an early night. There will be pool-side functions and music blasting with emcees and what-nots. Just make sure you're not back in the hotel before 12am for Sat nights.

Short walk to the mall diagonally across the road, where there was a cinema, KTV studio, and Hypermart. That's where we spent most of our time anyway.

We had dinner the first night at the hotel, and breakfast every morning - food was alright, nothing to rave about, sufficient and value for money.

It was a good enough getaway for a short time away from the bustle of Singapore. Groupon had a great deal for $69/pax inclusive of 1 night stay, return ferry ride, 1 dinner, and breakfast.

Bought a Groupon deal and had a 2 days 1 night stay here. Hotel is new, and so are everything there such as sun taning chair, bed etc. Hotel staff are warm and friendly. Location wise, it is right at batam centre ferry terminal, very convience to get around praces as there are taxis everywhere. I got a nice room on level 9 facing the sea which is a plus point.

Besides the excellent location and clean environment, my husband and I were impressed with the warm reception upon check-in. The reception staff were sincere and all smiles, and even the security guards served us nice welcome drinks and a cool towel to refresh ourselves. During check-in, the reception staff even took time to ask us to have a cookie :) I think her name was Vernya or something! She was really helpful and attended to our questions with a friendly smile.

To top it all off, we received an unexpected surprise when we came back after a long day out. We had requested for ice but when we opened our room door, 4 Harris staff greeted us with a loud "Happy Wedding Anniversary!" they were armed with a tasty chocolate cake lit with 2 candles and with the wordings "Happy Wedding". They helped us take some lovely photos too!

We have been to Harris Waterfront, and we know Harris prides herself on excellent service. Thanks for maintaining the standard here at the new hotel too! We will tell our friends of the great time we had here!
