Reviewed 12 June 2014

I took the Junior Suite. It comes with safebox, refrigerator etc. Room is clean, big and comes with toiletries. Centrally located (2 minutes walk to BCS Mall and about 15 minutes away from Batam Centre)

Manda, the reservation officer, also help out to get the cake for my friend's anniversary, but when the cake comes, it was written as "Happy Birthday". LOL.

Two things I did not like :
1) The breakfast, not really that delicious but acceptable.
2) Wifi is slowwwww.. I tried uploading photos to FB but it was still not loaded the next morning I woke up! My whatsapp also wasn't working well.

My room was 230, wifi modem is just outside the room but still :(

It was a great stay! Heard that this hotel is new (the swimming pool was still in construction when we went in feb earlier this year during cny), so cleanliness is undoubted. Service was great, and the morning breakfast was good-buffet style.

Location is good, near to a big shopping mall.

Overall, good stay, value for money!

Will definitely stay at this hotel if i visit batam again.

We only visit the hotel overnight. 3 star hotel is relatively new, about 11 months, a strategic location, close to the BCS mall, spacious rooms, comfortable beds with soft pillows, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is quite diverse and it tastes good. Only there was no refrigerator in the room, wifi is rather slow and the hallway leading to the room, the heat, the aircon does not feel / off. Gideon Hotel, the right choice when staying in Batam ...

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.
