“Bad service!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Stay for a night and we opt for business executive.. Trying out as recommend by friends.. We request for non smoking room bt were given smoking room.. Its ok and we didnt really check as we are heading out for spa n shopping and when we return we are shocked to found cigarette buds in the toilet and complimentary coffee was already use bt they didnt replace or clear it! When we lodge a complaint no action was taken. We insist fr explanation but was given a discount for our next visit.. We declined as for sure not gonna return back to this hotel.. Hotel need a revamp!!

These people that complain obviously don't travel much in Indonesia. I havee stayed twice at this hotel and i have no complaints at all, my rooms have always been clean and the staff have alsways been friendly and respectful, but i always treat them with respect as well. get real people this is very good value.

The hotel is just next to the Habour Bay Mall which is connected to the ferry terminal for Wavemaster Ferry. So it's just a 5 minutes walk to either destination. Easy & no rush for departure. I stayed 2 nights, the 1st room was 924, it was so noisy that we had to phone for the staff to come up to help us find the source of the noise. Apparently the noise came from the engine pump of the water tank above that room. So we requested to change to a quieter room. Another group of our friends arrived the next day for a 1 night stay, they were on level 8. They took up 3 rooms. One of them complained about cockroaches in her room and toilet. All of us noticed that the rooms had cigaret smell and the towels did not smell nice. But we all agreed tht the beds were firm and comfortable. I noticed the peeling paints from the walls and old looking toilets in the rooms my friends were in on level 8. We saw some of the rooms next to ours on level 9 being refurbished so they may be working their way down.Breakfast was included in the room rates, but the spread was sad. They did not bother to replenish even though breakfast is suppose to be on till 10am. To be fair, the staff at the reception and bell hop service were friendly and even though they do not speak much English, they'd try to help us.

Room Tip: The executive business rooms and the standard rooms are exactly the same size, the only difference i...

The Hotel is good value for money.

However, it is a smoking hotel, and be prepared to be snuffed with the cigarette smoke.

The air con is very cold for comfort, especially when the weather is typically hot and humid.

So far, the stains highlighted by other reviewers can be seen, it is acceptable as this is not a highly priced hotel.

The breakfast is ok and acceptable, but be prepared to have a smokey meal there.

We ventured out of the enclosed Harbour Bay area and walked towards a bazaar at

It is a risky walk as there are no pavements, but it is rewarding as one will see the actual life, and feel the sights and sounds, including for the adventurous ones the local food, without the contamination of 'international cuisine' which we can have anywhere in the world.

Myself & a friend of mine staied this Hotel on 28th & 29th June 2012. We came via Singapore from ferry to Batam. One good thing in this hotel is without waiting for normal checking time or extra charge as in singapore, they allow us to have our rooms. At that time the time was 10.30a.m.
Habour Bay Mall in opposite the Hotel. where you can buy things. All the shops are not occupide yet.
If anyone has limited money and want to stay comfotabley you can stay in this Hotel. The rooms are furnished well but carpets have some stains. Nothing to complain on Bathroom.(Sorry I couldn't get photos)The hotel some walls need a painting. But they
do regular cleaning. The staff is helpfull & friendly but their english understanding is very poor. But you can't expect 5 star facilities from 3 star hotel. Their breakfast (included in room charge)
is not bad. Buffet breakfast had resonable varietties. All in all it is not a bad Hotel. I am satisfied of the money I spent. Even my friend.

Room Tip: I was staying in 7th floor. The room is good. I could see Novatel Hotel & Pacific Hotel from my...

It was the 2nd most terrible hotel I have ever stayed in. But it was cheap. I paid less then IDR 350,000.00 for one night. The location is good as it is next to a mall and the ferry terminal but this were the only plus points.
The room was run down with paint peeling off the walls. The shower curtain was once white but now black because of mold. The water runs dark yellow for first few minutes. The aircon was leaking like a little waterfall. Check in was very slow. No water or minibar in the rooms no room service available. Room was overall dirty.
Not recommended. There are better hotels in Batam.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel to have a good room. I don't think this hotel has one single good room.
