Stayed at the Mercure Batam for one night over the weekend. Although I've seen advertisement saying it's 4 star, I'll give it a 3 star. Not saying it is bad, just that the decor seems a little old. The elevators have a weird green wallpaper. The restaurant seemed to lack manpower as there were no receptionist during dinner time. We were only attended to much later. Also perhaps it is a culture thing, but there were smokers in the restaurant. Rooms are functional, with slippers and toothbrush (which was a nice surprise). Thought that the instant coffee could be better, and it would be nice if there was a mini-bar/fridge in the room. The windows were also creaky. If you are travelling with infant, take note that the hotel did not have baby cot. All in all a little disappointing since it is supposed to be in the Mercure brand of hotels, but I would say it's functional.
