Batam is no home without grands i hotel. I am a solo traveler, visit batam for private business (not work) every 2-3 months, and stayed for 1-3 nights everytime I come. Staffs from front door all the way to housekeeping are so polite, very friendly, and helpful. Premises are clean; food either breakfast buffet, restaurant, or room service never failed my tastebuds. The first time I was here, I ordered superior room; but lucky me, I got an upgrade to deluxe. Since then I’ve always ordered for deluxe room. A month ago, again I got an upgrade from deluxe to deluxe apartment yeeaayy .. Hotel is almost at the centre of batam. All destinations are 15-20 minutes away by car, not mentioning nagoya hill mall which is only 5 minutes walk, where you can find almost everything (food, supermarket, etc). I have gone to other 4stars hotel in batam, but 5 stars review definitely goes only to grands i hotel.
New favourite hotel!”
Apart from i Hotel Baloi, this is my new favourite Batam hotel! The difference between i Baloi & Grands i is that the latter have rooms that have bathtubs! Its one of the things I look for when I want to book a hotel room. Staff are friendly, their pillows are super comfy and their location is fantastic as its just a stone throw away from Nagoya Hill Shopping Mall and shophouses offering massages, barber services etc. My only gripe is that the breakfast buffet spread could be better. I was at breakfast at 6.30am but most of the food was already cold. There’s the usual live egg station but if you’re not careful/attentive your eggs will most probably end up overcooked/dry. Let’s not talk about how they left yogurt cups out without any refrigeration or ice. There was also not much variety in terms of food and they could maybe invest in a proper coffee machine. Nevertheless, I will still come back to Grands i for my future visits to Batam. (:
Definitely recommend Grand I Hotel to others despite it being slightly pricier than the other hotels within the vicinity. Hotel is very clean in general, staffs are very friendly and helpful. No issues with noise or anything, really quiet room and was very happy with it. Also has some free snacks and drinks in the fridge for your consumption, good if you are hungry in the middle of the night. Has a bathtub and a smart TV with some cable channels. Rmb to bring your HDMI cable if you would like to connect your laptop to the TV as the hotel currently does not provide it. Internet/Wifi access is good too. Breakfast is normal in general, cant complain much, except certain foods like the chicken porridge which is surprisingly good. Would be a better option not to eat too much and save your stomach capacity for food inside Nagoya Mall. Hotel is near Nagoya Hill Shopping Mall, with just a 2 to 3 mins walk. Unlike Nagoya Hill Hotel, the walkway from Grand I Hotel to Nagoya Mall is not fully sheltered but both hotels are really close to Nagoya Hill anyway. In all, definitely worth our stay!
Wonderful stay here!”
Staying at the Grands I hotel was definitely a good move for my best friend and I. We really enjoyed our stay as it was really convenient in terms of being walking distance to the Nagoya Hill Mall and also the ferry terminal. Travelers should expect to pay around 50k - 60k Rupiah (~ SGD$5 - SGD$6) for your taxi from HarbourBay ferry terminal to the hotel and not more than that. If they do, then you know you're being cheated. Rooms and toilets were spacious and clean, breakfast was excellent and I especially looked forward to my morning jamu. I will definitely stay here again if I come to Batam island. Thank you for a wonderful stay :)
Nice hotel within walking distance to Nagoya hill mall”
I booked and paid deluxe room but was given a key for superior room . Only was told by receptionist in the evening after I have returned to hotel after shopping at the mall. Receptionist promised to upgrade my room in future to deluxe room if I come again to Batam and book superior room at Grand I but I wonder how they are going to that. I was offered a complimentary hotel transfer to ferry terminal for the mistake done by the check in staff who issued the room to me. Overall I am satisfied with the staffs service at the café and lobby as there were all very helpful and friendly .Had Ramadan buffet on Monday night but was very disappointed with the selection and most of the food on the spread were cold without heating element on except for chicken tom yam soup in the hot pot! The local dessert durian pengat was tasty and the breakfast spread were great. Grand I is a good choice hotel as it is most convenient hotel to all the massage center and there's short cut to Nagoya Hill Mall.
Superb location with beautiful rooms!”
Location was the most important factor why we chose Grand i hotel. Jus ask d receptionist to show you the shortcut to Nagoya Mall behind the building. Only downside is that there's a flight of staircase so it's not friendly for wheelchair or strollers. U will have to fold d stroller and carry the baby. The newly renovated deluxe rooms we took were huge and lots of pillows! Breakfast was a huge spread. If u love to drink jamu or kunyit asam you can actually have them at the breakfast spread! There's even fresh fruit juices. Watch out for those. Check in and out was a Breeze. I didn't hv time to check out the spa. Pool wasn't really big and no kids pool. Would I go back to stay? Most definitely! Value for money! U can arrange a taxi from the hotel to Batam centre terminal. We paid by the meter it was 85,000rp for the Exora Proton 7-seater. We got the room jus outside the lift. If you want peace and quiet please don't ask for the rooms near the lifts cos it will be noisy!
Great Hotel (A Stone Throw To Nagoya Shopping Mall)”
I have been to Batam 5 times this year. Every trip i tried new hotels. Grand I has not disappoint me the expectation i looked for in a hotel. Firstly, I was given an option to put deposit or not. Everything in the room fridge were complimentary for your consumption. Daily top up. What else are we asking for!! Secondly, it's really a walking distance to Nagoya Hill Shopping Mall. Thirdly, though the jacuzzi was not big but a heated jacuzzi that can melt your tiredness away after long hours of shopping. The outdoor pool for kids and adults were equally fun for family too. LAstly i must mentioned the cafe food were sumptuous. My kids chose to dine in the hotel twice during our 4 nights stay rather than their fav Sushi Tei.
Grand I Hotel is probably the best hotel in Batam right now. There is a certain grandeur about the place which I have yet to experience in other hotels. The rooms are spacious and have a luxurious feel to them. They are also pretty generous with pillows, which is always a pleasant surprise. Bottled mineral drinks and other amenities such as tea, coffee and toiletries are replaced daily for guests without fail too. Their staffs are also some of the best hotel staffs I've encountered, really friendly and helpful. And they were pretty observant of guests' needs because this is the first hotel which gave me interconnecting rooms after I've indicated under 'special requests' in my booking. However there are some negative points that I hope could be improved on in the future. Breakfast standards (taste and varieties) seem to have dropped. I have stayed here a few times back when it was just known as I Hotel, so I know how it used to be. It may not be a big issue to some people but one would expect after renovations and a name change to Grand I Hotel, service standards should at least remain as good as it was the last time. Also now with Nagoya Hill Hotel literally just 5 minutes away from Nagoya Mall, the distance you have to walk from Grand I Hotel just seem too far away. Especially when you have elderly people with you (in my case my mum) walking under the hot sun or in heavy rain. Safety is also an issue when you have to walk back to the hotel at night. There are times when the security guard is not around and you have to be extra careful walking along the dimly lit and deserted path. Having said all that though, I still feel no other hotels can match Grand I Hotel's standards so if you're looking for a home away from home, this is the place to go.
Great experience ”
Been to Batam several times and it was my 1st time staying at Grand I hotel. I have no regret and will definitely be back. Below are some of the pros and just a con (to me only and actually not really a con but still have room for improvement). Pros: 1) Big room with working desk & bathtub. 2) Short walking distance to Nagoya Hill Shopping Mall (very convenient). 3) Security is tight (even at the back alley to Nagoya Hill shopping mall). 4) Friendly staffs (professional and always with a smile and greeting). 5) To & fro transport provided for min. 3D2N. Con (improvement): 1) Restaurant is not big, overcrowded during breakfast time (perhaps it is a popular hotel).
My first stay in Grand I hotel is a great one! Requested for non smoking and high level room and I got the room on level 7! Very nice view and quiet! Booked the deluxe room and its really spacious! Really glad that the room is exactly same as the picture on the website!! What you see is what you get! The entire hotel gave off a warm feeling which is really cozy and relaxing. Room is super clean as well. Bed is really comfortable!! Location is excellent, use the back gate and head to Nagoya Hill Mall in like 5 mins. The only bad thing its that the back gate is a stairs access way and not slope, I have knee injury and its quite difficult for me to climb. Hopefully the hotel can make a slope platform for those that have difficulties climbing the stairs!! Breakfast was okay, not a lot of variety to choose from though. ): And btw MOST staff are friendly and nice!! The only unfriendly one that I met is the one that helped me with check in, she seems really unhappy idk why maybe she pms. But OVERALL GREAT STAY!!! Definitely worth the price!!
Made my Batam trip so much more enjoyable”
had been to Batam numerous times. 1st time staying in this hotel and i was amazed. the facilities are 5 stars. if you are tired of walking around in Batam, you can simply stay in the hotel and chill out. there is the swimming pool (15m), outdoor jacuzzi, a really huge gym and steam room/sauna. the coffee lounge has 1-for-1 beer during happy hour (5pm-7pm). about SGD3 for a beer so happy hour will be half the price!! there is a walkway at the back of the hotel to get to Nagoya Hill shopping Mall, which is oh so convenient. the staff are friendly and helpful. the breakfast has a very good variety and good quality. i'm not a breakfast person but i was tempted to eat....a lot! because of the hotel, i want to go back to Batam and i want to stay here again. less than SGD100 per night, the quality is really really good!
Top choice stay”
I stayes in this hotel when it was newly opened years ago. That was my 1st visit to Batam and I was impressed with the cleaniness, location, services. Simply everything in the hotel that makes me wow! After my first trip, I never want to stay in any other hotels again whenever I visit Batam unless their rooms were sold out. It never fail to live up the expectation I have on them. They maintain the hotel very good and I'm totally impressed. They even have a pathway linking from behind the hotel to the Nagoya Shopping Mall now which makes it even more convenient and safer for tourists. I remembered walking along the roadside outside the hotel to the mall and took us a longer time. Kudos for the upgrade and my friends who stayed the 1st time were impressed and can't wait to recommend to their friends. For me, this is will always be my number 1 choice hotel in Batam.
Best Location & Affordable Price ”
We took a cab from batam ctr to Nagoya Mall about 75,000 rupiah. This is the second time we stayed at Grand I Hotel and it was super convenient for us to access by the back door to Nagoya mall and back to hotel. The back door open from 6 am to 12 midnight. Hotel price we paid per room for 2d1n is about SGD90+. Lots of options to choose on the buffet breakfast. Bed was super comfy with large pillows.
Very comfortable ”
Initially booked ourselves into Grands I hotel for a night but the room was so comfortable we decided to extend our holiday and booked another night. All was good, staff, room, location just 5 min from Nagoya Hill shopping area. Just wish it were slightly cheaper, $100 per night (Sunday to Tuesday) for the cheapest (superior) room is too expensive for a 4-star Batam hotel. Other than that, I would recommend anyone on a comfortable budget to stay here.
Fabulous Grand I hotel”
My family and I had a very good experience at the Grand I Hotel. Conveniently located less then 10minutes drive from The Harbour Bay, less then 5minutes walk to the Nagoya shopping mall, the hotel also offers comfortable stay and delightful f&b.As soon as I reach the entrance of the hotel, I notice that there was security doing check on all vehicle. That gave me a sense of security. I was glad that my family arrival was greeted by the warm smiles of the staff there. It's easy to find reasons to come back there. My only complaint is that the pavement opposite the hotel is not properly build. (not the hotel fault). I had to walk on mud to reach the other side! But this minor issue doesn't reflect the excellency of Grand I Hotel. thank you.
Good location. Love the deluxe room with attached bathtub and swimming pool view from room. Less than 5mins walk to Nagoya Mall. Superb breakfast. My first choice hotel in Batam. Not cheap to get taxi here. Moving around here is much cheaper by Grab or Uber than taxi. From HarbourBay ferry terminal to hotel took less than 10 minutes. Worth the money. Keep it up Grands-i hotel!
Great location and service”
The hotel is just 5 mins walk to Nagoya hill mall through a cement walk way with lighting behind the hotel. Buffet breakfast menu changes and not boring. They even have freshly squeezed fruit juices. The massages and spa in the hotel is reasonably priced but undergoing renovations now. So only massages are available and for in room services only. The price is slightly higher than the usual batam hotels but every cent is worth it. Remember the location is just 10 minutes drive from harbour bay ferry terminal. Batam center terminal is further away.
STILL ONE OF THE BEST HOTEL TO STAY”
HI, I had staying GRANDS I ( NAGOYA ) HOTEL before maybe more than 3 yrs ago. This time I am back again. Well, what I can say the hotel is still live up to it's best standard as before. The service of the staffs from all department, the cleanness of all the room is still the best. So keep up the good work as I am sure this is the best choice to stay whenever in batam.
Second Stay in one Month”
This is my second trip to Batam in a month and Grand I Hotel never fail to disappoint. The previous trip I booked Deluxe and I'd booked Superior this time round. The rooms are still spacious to my surprise however the toilet is a little smaller than Deluxe room but that's okay. The only complaint I have this time round is the water heating system in the room and the hot water is not consistent in my room only and it did not affect my friends' rooms. Love the location and this will definitely be my go-to hotel in Batam!
Great location and staffs!”
Thankful for Grand I Hotel to grant all my requests for my recent stay. (Early check in at 1pm and high floor) Their staffs are always polite and friendly, greet you whenever they walk pass you. The location is fantastic as it’s only 5min walk Nagoya Hill Shopping Mall! Will be back when I am coming to Batam again.. it’s my 3rd stay here :)
