When I arrived at Batik, the staff immediately acknowledge me by name. I was served tuak (rice wine) and kuih lapis (layered cake) while waiting for the room to be ready. The staffs were friendly and we chatted by the wooden daybed with daylight coming through the roof. I was scheduled for 5 days at Batik. They are even nice...

If you are looking for personalized service and not the usual 5-star trappings, BATIK provides a satisfactory level of accommodation for small families. Its location is a plus, with it situated within walking distance to TOP SPOT food court - a huge shrine of obesity for local food lovers. It is also walking distance to the Main Bazzar, facing the...

The Batik is definitely a nice hotel keeping up to western standards. Nice room, great bathroom. Our room wasn't ready upon arrival at 2pm, but they were welcoming us with a sake and some cake during the short wait. I booked a room for 225 RM at booking.com, they wanted to charge 250 RM. Took me a few minutes to...

What a fantastic hotel, definitely a boutique hotel! Each room is different. Mine was huge, had a bathroom that opened into the rest of the room, and a rain shower. The staff were really good, and very accommodating of a late check out. It's really good value for money.

Stayed for 3 nights at this boutique hotel and felt very welcome throughout the stay. The rooms have a cool design but are starting to look a bit worn out - a bit of fresh paint and thoroughly cleaning the grout would take them back to their former glory.... But for the price who can complain. The bed is comfortable...

This small hotel is one of its kind, and that is why we chose it. You have to pay in advance the total amount, which i found a little strange. When we arrived at 1.30 p.m. our room was not ready, so we waited a little and was offered a welcome drink. We got our room and there was only...

Came with a friend, arriving late on an evening and realizing upon our arrival that we had booked the wrong date (my fault). They sorted it out and still had a room for us, and we got in quickly with no problems. The room was nice. It's not phenomenal - but it does look like the pictures but seems to...

We had a really spacious room in this hotel. There was plenty of room to put your stuff, a really big bathroom with walk in shower and freestanding bath, and desk space for laptops etc. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel decoration in the foyer and communal areas could do with being refreshed to restore it to the...
