New, decent, clean and convenient
This is a popular business hotel downtown Nagoya (the main town in Batam Island) which over the weekend gets crowded with tourists - mainly from Singapore - flocking into town for shopping and eating.
The hotel falls a little short on its ambition of international 4-star hotel but in the whole is decent and convenient. Add that other hotels around don't look any better, actually worse, therefore my conclusion is this is just the standard of the island for the time being.
Location is a big plus, a block away from Nagoya Hill Mall, the hottest hangout place in the Island at time of writing, and few more minutes away from downtown area and the jetty. Easy to get to/leave from as well as easy to get around.
My room was ok, in order and clean, but it looked cheap both in materials and craftsmanship for the grade. Internet connection in the room was available via cable but no via wireless.
Service was friendly and through the concierge you can get metered taxis avoiding the hassle of having to negotiate the silly rates you are quoted if you look like a foreigner. Breakfast was messy due to the crowd, honestly a little disappointing. The vocal-pianist duo in the lounge at second floor is good.
All in all, this hotel is below its grade by international standard but new, decent, clean and convenient. Not an exciting place but honestly the best-looking of the hotels I have seen getting around Nagoya.
