I reserve rooms thru mercure batam offical website, we received a confirmation email that rooms has been reserved. When we arrived, system shows our reservation did not went thru. The reservation staff mention tha our payment never get thru and our reservation has been cancelled. If only us facing this issue i undsrstand but few of them facing the same issue when i discuss with other guests. We went to talked to the manager, he charge us 1 room 2 queen size bed for SGD100+++ but website shows $70+. He told us to adjust the first day and second day he will give us two rooms for 4 person but the next day his body language and tone is very rude. Then we decide to leave from mercure and went to stay in some budget hotel. Around 8am half of the breakfast finished, they should well prepared due to public holiday. I went to mercure few times and i recommend my friends to go there but after this incident. I decided not to go there anymore due to rude manager and service is very bad.

Old and tired hotel. Hotel is not centrally located. Front desk courteous and helpful. Room is spacious but smell musty. Air conditioning is very cold even after turning up temp. Small Swimming pool on upper floor but no lifeguard. Hotel is lax on Swimming attire. Buffet breakfast costs 100,000rps per pax. Do not go for the hotel massage. Masseur lacks experience and massage and shower room are dirty and musty.

Nearest food outlet is a Pizza Hut restaurant within walking distance. Nearest 24hr convenience store is Circle K. Alfa Mart a 24 hr convenient store is also within walking distance. Windsor foodcourt a popular tourist place for seafood dinner is a half hour walk from hotel. If you feel adventurous, from hotel, "Turn Left, keep walking past first traffic light, at second traffic light, turn left and immediately turn left into small lane. You should be able to spot the signage Windsor Foodcourt. Alternatively take cab. Megamall is abt 20mins cab ride from hotel. Cab fare is 80,000rps.

Stayed for a night as our usual hotel were fully booked. We don't expect much for a three star hotel but it seems they got renovation going on. Building looks old and smoky damp smell along hotel corridor . We stayed on the 5th floor . There's 2 lift but only one "working" and also had problem. The "press down" button is not working . We had to "press up" in order to get the lift to our floor when we want to go down. Miserable indeed. Breakfast was ok, they do have omelette upon request . Food and coffee is hot. But please don't drink their juice . It's so diluted that I think they should just use syrup should they want to save cost.

Spent my eve of new year 2017. Room is big and spacious bedrooms. Clean and big bed. Breakfast is not much but still the basic foods. But then for a rate we paid still worth it. Staff are friendly and quick getting things done when I informed there was toilet chocked. The downside is there are smoking area in an enclosed area where we have our Breakfast. Shouldn't they segregate an area outside the restaurant for customers who want to smoke. Not inside.

Arrived late in the night and managed to get a room pretty quickly. The room is huge but there is a very strong smell of old funiture and furnishing. Air con was not cold and there are loud noise coming from outside the window. The next day, went down for breakfast and I must say the food are tasty although not too much of a varieties to choose from.
