“Bad experience”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Where to start, broken aircon, and mosquitoes galore. Breakfast is so so.
The only good thing was the hotel's standby driver was good and we hired him to drive us and guide us. Never returning to Gideon ever again.

Location ☆☆☆☆
Just 5 mins walk from one of the big shopping center with very good bargains

Room ☆☆☆☆☆
Very comfortable bed, 1 extra large pillow (largest I've seen), 1 regular size pillow & 1 throw pillow, water heater works all right but aircond is not cold enough so say my roommate, 32inch LCD tv, dryer, u name it, it's in there! But not much scenery view from the wide window since it's in the city ...

Cleanliness ☆☆☆☆☆
Bedsheets clean, toilets & shower also clean

Facilities ☆☆☆☆
Wonderful breakfast with many choices (english breakfast mainly but also fried noodles, porridge, cereals, sausages, pastries, omelets, etc). Free wifi in lobby & rooms. Controlled access to rooms via lift access cards. Just missing a swimming pool for the last ☆.

Staff ☆☆☆☆
Friendly & helpful. Very courteous and smiling.

It's a new hotel so everything that you see, touch and smell feels new. Unfortunately, the superior room does not have a fridge and there isn't a business center/spa/swimming pool. I guess it's a hotel that's catered for shoppers who are eyeing for shopping at BCS Mall and many other great shopping area.

Gideon hotel is located at a very good place: If you love shopping BCS Mall is perfect for you. If you love food, there's a lot of good food there. A lot of things there are really cheap, and I really mean CHEAP.

Overall, we love the hotel based on the fact that it is new.

Stayed here for a Nite. Was going for my Spa Massage In Batam. Clean & bright hotel with very comfortable bed. Had a very good rest. Hotel was near to wet markets and local eateries. Only negative point is, needs improvement on their Breadfast spread.

I stayed for a night with my parents thru online voucher deals

Pros
- Clean and relatively new properties - good bed and nice comfy pillows
- location is good where BSC and A2 hawker center is just across the street, with many local eateries and wet market just around the corner
- Breakfast is very acceptable
- Staff are very polite and helpful - well trained
- check in was a breeze
- internet speed is good

Cons
- sound proofing might need some improvement

all in all it is a good hotel, if you appreciate having convenience around the hotel

A hidden hotel just situated diagonally opposite the BCS mall. Great location, a traditional wet market and some wholesale shops is located directly in front of the hotel less than 3 mins walk. Cost $40k per trip to take the hotel transport to the nagoya hill mall.

Overall quite a great hotel, the minus point is no refrigerator and the bedroom air conditioner doesnt seem to be cool enough...

Excellent service, breakfast was delicious, very nice room! Location is good, located right across a shopping centre. Wifi is available FOC, in-house taxis too. There ain't a nice view through the windows though.
