Hotel looks grand, the staff is nice, but the rooms in crying out for new fitttings. Looks very in need of a major renovation. Even I stayed at the Executive room, it does not look executive to me. The breakfast looks very unappealing,
We went on a weekday, and they checked us in despite the fact that we were there two hours before check in time. The hotel's staff were very friendly and helpful, and they're cheerful as well.
The hotel's rooms are pretty spacious, and are also quite cosy. The whole hotel also has a very nice, lively feel to it, which made the stay a lot more comfortable.
Definitely a good place to stay for friends travelling together.
The Crown Vista is located about 20 minutes from the Batam Centre. The average fare from the harbor front is 50,000 rupiah. The staff were very professional and tried to engage in English whenever possible. The room was huge, you could have held a conference in it and it also had a wonderful balcony area.
The room amenities were great and because of the size and all the additional appointments, you could just sit and relax. My wife loved the spas and was effusive in her praise of the staff who looked after her.
The Scenery Restaurant provided a variety of food, from the buffet breakfast which was varied and delicious to a well rounded menu for the rest of the day. I ate predominantly Indonesian fare and it was marvelous. My wife tried a variety of dishes and in almost every case I ended up sharing my meal with her. The food was good, but not really what she wanted. The flavors and aromas arsing from the food was mouth watering.
I cannot state enough the wonderful way in which the staff went out of their way to ensure we had a relaxing and enjoyable stay.
I had not so wonderful time there
The Spa facilities were under construction and unavailable contrary to their website claims
Super slow to no Internet access at all despite my room very near to the access point
I would stay away from this hotel
The staff are very friendly and helpful
But not enough for me to rate this hotel high and recommend to friends
The only plus side is it's proximity to a local Pharmacy
