We were particularly delighted by the hand written / coloured weather forecast left by the bedside at night! The furnishings are mainly antique (think opulence meets quirkiness) but for us this added to the impact and... More

Dear guestgU3986SA. It is unfortunate that you did not have a pleasant experience when you tried to sell your shuttle service to the owner of Batavia Boutique Hotel, in this case, without an appointment. Batavia has always valued long standing business relationships with service providers of excellence and hence, we have dealt over many years, with another service provider due... More
