I bought a voucher from a deal site in Sg and spent a weekend at this hotel. It was rated four stars (probably by local and not international standards) but the hotel looked older than it actually is (one of the taxi drivers told me its considered quite new in Batam). The service, rooms, cleanliness, breakfast, and massage services were acceptable but nothing to shout about. Nevertheless, i think that the deal i purchased was worth it as the total amount i paid for the voucher (which includes the return ferry tickets, and freebies like massage, seafood lunch and flying fox) was less than what it actually costs to stay at the hotel for a night.
The hotel is located quite a distance away from the Batam centre ferry terminal and from the major shopping malls. However, hotel taxis are available for hire to bring you to the ferry terminal. They also provide shuttle bus services at specific timings to and from the shopping malls. On the bright side, i think the benefits of staying here is that it is near the popular 933/555 seafood restaurants (frequented by tourists) and outdoor entertainment centre (where you can find flying fox, go cart, paint ball etc) so families with children will probably like this place much more. :)
