The hotel is located just beside the batam ferry terminal and it is good choice for those 1st timer to batam as it is just walking distance from the terminal and it allow you to organized yourself for any tour that you would want to plan. Also the batam mega mall is also just a stone throw away. Pool is small but ample for a few lap but the other problem is that you have to walk across the breakfast area to reach the lift. Room is nicely done up with all the necessary amenities like a safe, mini bar and also a travel wall plug(save the hassle of bringing the travel adaptor). however do not expect 5 star hotel decoration. Maintenance is something that they might want to put more effort into it. Staff is wonderful! Overall a nice experience.

Was a last minute booking, many hotel was not available, so Harris instead.
Room: Quite clean but toilet abit run down with those rusty tiles. Anyway, Love the hassle free complementary wifi without password.
Breakfast in Harris Cafe is just ok only... nothing special to comment about.
Like the ala carte lunch better, especially the Nasi Goreng Kampung!
Hotel is located just besides ferry terminal which makes it popular.
However, if Im going to batam again, most likely will not come back. As there are many other newer hotels in this price range.

This hotel is just next to the ferry terminal in Batam center. You can just walk over to the hotel after coming out of the custom. The check in was fast and the staff was polite. The café is on the ground floor. The room itself is clean with a 32" LED TV. I got the room that is facing the road but is OK as you're not able to hear the noise of the traffic inside the room. There is also rooms that is facing the sea which I would strongly recommend as the view is much better. The bathroom and toilet is also clean and in good working condition. The breakfast is also OK as there's a lot of variety except that some food is a bit salty. There's a small pool beside it which I don't see a lot of people using. There's also a shopping mall just opposite the road which is a walking distance, hence you'll not feel bored if you have nothing to do. Overall I would recommend this hotel to my friends.

Room Tip: Get the rooms facing the sea.

We stayed in Harris' twin bed room for two nights. Great location with batam center a stone's throw away. Spacious room with cable tv. Beds were comfy and sheets were clean. No bath tubs while the pool was modest but commendable. Nicely decked with wicker patio furniture. Pool must have been near the sewage or sorts as whiffs of stench could be picked up but only if you linger at the outer ends of the pool. Would return to Harris again.

Benefits included

Walking Distance from the Ferry Terminal, just walk across the parking lot.
Rooms were clean
You can also walk to Mega Mall

Other than those two things, I did not see anything else you could walk too
Spa services need to be booked one day in advance and treatments are done in your room.
The pool area is small, but well kept, however there is a sewage smell in that area from somewhere behind the hotel.

If this is the area you want to be in, this is probably the best choice.
