I cannot believe myself when I stepped into the bathroom and found pee stains on the toilet seat. Mind you it wasn't just a drip or two, it was splashed as if it were a public toilet. The bathroom was dry, with towels folded nicely and the set of toiletries were nicely placed. How on earth does the service cleaners miss that? That was the first thing I saw when I opened the bathroom door. If they cannot even maintain basic hygiene like that, it's hard to imagine whether proper care is actually being placed into maintaining the cleanliness of the other stuff in the room. Are the towels even clean? Are the bedsheets even clean? Have the glasses been washed properly? Makes you wonder. The bath tub is also clogged with the stopper stuck, made 2 calls to the counter, we had to wait 30mins for someone to actually show up, pull up the stopper and it fell back down clogging the tub again 2mins after he left. Frustrated and tired as it was already almost midnight, me and my sister went next door and showered in our parents' room instead. Oh and yes, the toilet flush is faulty, you probably need to flush it for 10 times. This is my first trip to Batam and is undoubtedly the most horrible experience I ever had with hotels overseas. I will return to Batam, but will definitely never ever return to Mercure.
