“Nice Short Retreat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We stayed at Golden View Hotel for one night during our 2D1N trip in Batam - it was a tour package. We have been given a deluxe room - if I'm not mistaken - at level 9, facing the Golden Park, ponds, houses, and a beach from far away. The room was spacious and clean. Very minor stain on the blanket though. We slept tight that night, and there was no bed bug. Open WiFi signal was great. Everything was satisfactory, however, the towels really had strange stench. They just didn't smell nice. Besides, the two bottles of complimentary drinking water had strange stench too! Anyway, kettle was provided so water could be boiled at anytime. There was a nice pool yet we noticed people swimming in their normal attire, not swimsuit. Somehow, we got annoyed with that...
The nearby Golden Prawn Restaurant did not impress us. We didn't find the foods very delicious, some of the dishes appeared to be salty. It was the only restaurant in walking distance. There were a bar and a cafe - Cuppa Cafe - in the hotel though, meals could be ordered to be sent to room as well. Breakfast at Cuppa Cafe was average. Initially, we wanted to try some local food stalls at the street located just outside of  the hotel premises, yet we were advised not to take those foods by tour guide to prevent unnecessary stomachache. Famous malls such as Nagoya Hill Mall and Batam Central Mall are very far from the hotel. Location wise, it was not that ideal. Reason being that there were abundant of interesting stuffs and foods in the malls, as well as various kinds of massage - especially Nagoya Hill.

Attended 4-day retreat at the hotel. Suffered from overpowring artificial fragrance and chemicals from toilet auto air fresheners and packets of fragrance refills that are placed almost every where e.g. in the function halls, common corridors, hotel rooms. Yes, not just in the toilets! The fragrance refills are placed at every other air-conditioning outlets and the auto fresheners at columns in the function hall. The auto fresheners squirt chemicals every few minutes and we had nowhere to run to (as we had to be at our seats in the function hall). SuggestIon: engage professional air duct cleaning contractor to clean the air duct system.

Hand towels were not provided by default. We had to request for them. Cleaned towels came with too strong fragrance, felt powdery, and were worn and had old stains on them.

For safety, bathroom design needs improvement to prevent spillage of water onto floor.

Food
Some dishes were too salty and were not healthy choices. Some fresh and unfresh items were mixed and served e.g. cut spring onions (the smell is already off) for the porridge. Porridge was not maintained hot. Butter was always already melted. Need to improve on taste of dishes (but not using more msg) and freshness of ingredients.

Rooms are spacious. This is a plus point.

Staff members are in general courteous.

Stayed there for just a night. Actually room is included in the package as well.worth the amount paid for. Did not expect the room will be that huge to accommodate 2 pax.the bed was comfortable. There are minor stains on the carpet but it was just a minor problem.

There was a very bad area of leakage just beside of our room. Along the corridor we saw one of the room left their leftovers which they had ordered a day before. It was still there the very next day.

The pool attendant was kind enough to let us swim without our proper swimming attire as we have forgotten to bring one.

There was fitness center, steam and sauna services as well. The equipment of the fitness center was somehow rather not functioning pretty well but thanks to the fitness center staff as well for allowing us to use the facilities without my shoes on.

The breakfast was just bare minimum. Very few options to choose from but then again worth the price we had paid for.

All in all. It was a memorable short getaway for my husband and I as we enjoyed almost everything from the trip.

This is somewhat a 3 to 4 star hotel, where the room is very spaceous, 1 queen size and a single bed just for both of us. The only qualms I had was the bath tub is only good for 1 person.

Over all the room, the food/buffet downstairs are superb, the location is ok if you like the seafoods in the gold prawn restauran i think but it's very far from the mall.

Room Tip: If you're nod fond of Malay or Chinese food there's a Western restaurant on the 2nd level wi...

I stayed at Golden View Hotel for 2 nights in the Superior room on the 7th floor. I would say that it is very spacious & clean. The only problem I have with the room is the bathroom. It floods the bathroom after each shower & drainage problem of the basin.

Wifi in the room is very weak. Maybe we were staying in the last room so signal is very weak. Another problem is smoking is permitted in the lobby & Cuppa Cafe.

There is not much variety for breakfast.

We are able to rent a pool table for S$5 an hour. Swimming pool is clean & is great for kids to play.

It was my first time to visit Batam, Indonesia through a voucher website. My husband and I stayed for the night at Golden View Hotel. Not bad. So far so good. Just right beside Golden Prawn 933. The only thing that I've noticed is that they did not provide bathrobes. Bedroom was big enough. The next day, even though it was a holiday in Singapore at that time, of course, lots of guests, buffet breakfast was organized. Lighting at the Reception, Concierge and bedroom halls was so far not bad. Swimming pool looks inviting ( and clean! ). Will look forward to another stay with this hotel.

I signed up a package which included the hotel stay, city tour and the 1 hour massage within the hotel.

The city tour is not fascinating as we are brought around to shops opened by the tour guide's boss. However, I really appreciate that the tour guide brought us to Diana's Handmade Kuey Lapis shop. Diana's kuey lapis tastes much better than other kuey lapis in Batam.

After a long day, we were brought to Golden View Hotel to rest for the day. The tour guide also helped us make an appointment with the spa for our 1-hour massage.

My HTB and I were surprised to see the spacious hotel. All toiletries are provided, except for facial towel. I am not sure if the hotel staff missed that out or the hotel does not provide, but we didnt question further.

The door of the shower corner is not fitted properly. Hence, water could easily flood the toilet.

The spa room is separated from the function room by a thin wall. On that fine night, there is one function ongoing and it was really disturbing when I wanted to relax during the massage. The staff is very skillful but I guessed they are very bored from massaging people all day long. Hence, they were chatting while massaging for the whole 1 hour! This 1-hour is certainly not a good experience for me.
