“Impressive for their standards”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Had a night stay in this hotel and it was good. The hotel is walking distance from the ferry terminal (Harbour Bay), there were signs to show you the directions towards the hotel. The hotel had very spacious lobby, receptionist was efficient. Rooms were clean however they should work on the hot water. It was not hot enough for a person like me who loves very hot shower. Thank you Vina and Christina from reception. They speak very clear and good English. Spend the evening listening to the live band at the lobby lounge, it was good.
We will definitely come back!

The hotel is located very near to the ferry terminal and Nagoya Mall is a 5 mins taxi ride away. The hotel staffs are very polite and made our stay very pleasant. They were very nice to accomadate to my request for a special setup in the room since we are there to celebrate our wedding anniversary although we spend a considerable amount of time waiting for the room to be ready. One small hitch: The aircon was not working well and it took a while for the technician to rectify. Although the problem were unresolved in the end, the staff were quick to move us to a bigger room at no additional cost. Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay. Rooms were nice, clean and comfortable since the hotel is rather new. I felt that the breakfast buffet spread could improve though. I would definitely return for another stay and hopefully the hotel maintain their service standard or even better.

Even though we have to wait for such a long period to check in but was very satisfied with the room decor that i have requested beforehand as to surprise my hubby...he was pleased also with the decor and he was surprised that the hotel staff team sang for him a birthday song. Overall stay was good, the staff standard was very good but if the breakfast buffet could improve it will be excellence as some of the foods is quite bland. But in anyway will definitely return again to stay for our next trip !!

This hotel is situated beside a mall and ferry terminal but this terminal is not widely used (the main ones are at Batam Center and Sekupang, both are a distance away). The mall seems fairly new and only the supermarket at the basement seems populated (quite a big supermarket). Nagoya Mall is near, about 5-10mins away and IDR50k each way by taxi. The hotel itself seems fairly new and the rooms are decent enough for the price. Basically no complains, except the water pressure for the shower is mildly erratic. Walking distance from the hotel there is a broadwalk with seafood restaurants facing the sea though I did not try them. There is also a massage place and cafe opposite the hotel.

Room Tip: Request for a room with a view facing outside.

My stay was great!! The hotel staff was great met my expectation! Room was really a nice! I celebrated my anniversary, the hotel surprised me with an awesome decoration of the room! The staff was really attentive. The bed was really comfy the bath room was really clean it's really like a five star hotel with a luxury feel at an affordable rate! The only downside is that, when I was having breakfast no waitress ask if I wanted coffee or tea. I had to pour myself at the place whereby the waitress put their pot of coffee and tea. Anyways one of the waitress saw me pouring, she told me that she serve the tea to my table. But when she served me, there was no spoon at the saucer she didn't bother to asked me if I wanted sugar she did saw my table wasn't with any sugar or creamer. Again I got up and took myself. My table was not set with condiments and the table cloth was dirty. They did not change the table cloth until I ask them to have it change. I guess they didn't have extra table cloth and my table was the odd one out as it was replaced with a table mat. I noticed that all the table around me was all dirty and all was not change. My table was overloaded with plates it took quite a while for the staff to clear. I suggest for a better ambience it should change so that guest feel comfortable when having breakfast and staff should be observant to the details of the table layout and the guest needs. The breakfast buffet was almost gone and I have to wait quite sometime for them to replenish. Overall stay was great and the breakfast service can be improve. I will definitely come again,

Booked the hotel for a short stay with my family over the weekend. The hotel is a short walking distance from the ferry terminal. It was raining heavily that day but thank god for the sheltered bridge linking to the hotel! The hotel is also part of a mall which is still in its early stage so not much shopping or entertainment there. That's not a problem for us because the hotel is also not so far out to the Nagoya Shopping Mall which took us about 10-15minutes by cab (roughly RP40,000).

Entering the hotel was a little confusing for us. There are no signage informing us of the check-in counter or lifts leading to the hotel. We went down an escalator but that led us to the supermarket downstairs instead and we had to come back to where we came from. We had to carry our luggage (we were with a toddler) and stroller down a staircase.

There is a huge spa right in front of the hotel but you have to make an appointment as it can get pretty busy and full over weekend. So we decided to use the hotel’s spa instead. The masseuse that tended to me was friendly and chatty. Only thing is that the spa is right above the swimming pool and you can’t really relax when you can hear people chatting loudly beside the room as well as at the swimming pool area. I figured the rooms are that not sound proof. So don't expect a noise free spa if you planned on one!

Our room was on level 3 and i figure it was the smoking floor because the room smelt of cigarette lingering. We smelt like walking ashtrays afterwards. Haha. The shower floor is a little bit slippery. I had to hold onto my daughter from slipping while showering her. The breakfast range is pretty wide and the staffs there are attentive to our needs. The beds and pillows though was awesome! I slept like a baby.

Overall experience though Swiss-Belhotel Harbour Bay looks like a luxury hotel at very affordable room rates!

Despite the little flaws and minor setback, I still give it a two thumbs up.

Room Tip: avoid booking rooms on level 3 if you don't want to smell like a walking ashtray.
