Absolutely loved my experience with Lovina Inn Penuin Branch. This was our first time to Batam, and my wife and I stayed here for 3 days 2 nights based on the only ONE recommendation here on Trip Advisor and a number of emails from the hotel. You can get a room at Penuin for around 210,000 IDR but we went with the room with a window (Deluxe room on the 3rd floor) for 260,000 IDR on Mondays to Thursdays, and 280,000 IDR on Fridays to Sundays.
We had arranged for the hotel to pick us up from the ferry terminal for 50,000 IDR. That was money well spent and it was nice to have someone greet us and take us to the hotel. Tabri was our friendly driver's name. We were able to check-in early (around 10am). The staff was very friendly and helpful and there English was good enough to get by. Breakfast was included (toast, noodles, egg, soup, tea/coffee). The location is very convenient, next to the BCS mall and an outdoor food court.
The rooms are relatively clean and new and we found our stay relatively quiet. I would recommend this hotel for people who just need a place to stay that's clean and reasonably priced.More
