Yes, it is a hydrangea macrophylla. It comes in two flavors depending on the type of blooms: mophead blooms and lacecap blooms. The plant in the picture has a case of powdery mildew. That is the grey or white marks that you see in the leaves. Overhead watering contributes to this problem so, never get the leaves wet. Instead, only water the soil.

How to tell if it needs water: insert a finger into the soil to a depth of 2-3 inches (5-7.5cms) and water only if the soil feels dry or almost dry.

If kept indoors, it should be considered as an annual plant. Hydrangeas do not perform well inside the house due to lack of humidity. Make sure that it gets some morning sun (until 10-11am or so). But slowly introduce it to more light. Since it has been getting indirect light, I would give it 1 hour of morning sun for several days; then two hours for the same number of days, etc.; stop giving it sun at 10am or so. You can give it 1 hr of very early sun for 3-7 days.
