“Great rooms, well appointed, but the hospitality...... hmmmmmmm”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

By its very nature a hotel is HOSPITALITY.............. Oh BCC, read that sentence.......... understand it........... delve into its meaning.... tear it apart............ put it back together......... and then, for chr......sss bl....dy....sake act on it because your staff have much to learn in this regard.

Very nice rooms, very nice fittings, very comfortable bed, very comfortable sheets, very comfortable pillows, great water pressure (it's a sad reflection on a country when one feels compelled to comment on the water pressure but, sheeeeeeesh, Indonesia!!!! get your stuff together and get the simple stuff sorted out!!!! guests at 4 and 5 star hotels ought not ever be feel compelled to comment on the water pressure... sheeeesh!!f)

Quite obviously this hotel is just a way for some rich dude to invest in real estate; there's no repeat no emphasis on hospitality.

People, you'll love the rooms and some of the other amenities and the location but leave your non-halal expectations and your expectations for warm, pro-active hospitality at home....... this is nothing but a 2-star hotel in a 4-star shell.

Room Tip: You won't get pork products here..............

Booked a luxury suite, room was huge, with a living room and has a jucuzzi in the bathroom. Location was awesome, BCS mall is just next to it, and at night, there is a A2 food centre for you to dine at. Good place for a short relaxing getaway.

This is my 3rd stay in Batam and BCC Hotel is the best stay i had in Batam.

Very spacious hotel room, clean and new. The facility like swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam bath, sauna and gym was open until 11pm.

The hotel is very near to Batam City Square and a food court, mainly selling Singapore food which i dont really recommend.

Taking a cab from BCC Hotel to Nagoya Shopping Center or Sports Massage will cost you around SGD 7. If you are taking a cab from Nagoya Shopping Center to Sports Center, it will cost you around SGD 4.

As for the buffet breakfast, the timing is great, it is from 6am to 11am. Food wise, the porridge is nice.

Overall, the experience was great and i will definitely go back to BCC Hotel again.

The management of the hotel , was as good as the rooms !!! Rooms spacious and well furnished, wonderful panorama from the one I stayed in , with an everchanging refreshment as vessels enter and leave the anchorages.

Service disappoints, lifts are not fit for purpose, catering is average , water barely warm, and Internet access does the "hokey kokey"

Sorry guys you are making a mediocre story from a great potential

Room Tip: Sea view and higher floor

This is my first visit to the BCC and I am glad to have been here. Hotel staffs were mostly friendly and polite and they had a spacious lobby with comfy sofas for waiting. The BCS mall is located right beside the property. The only thing that probably needs improvement would be the elevators, which I felt were rather slow.

The room was a pleasant sight and I was taken by the spacious room. The room looked out to the city and it was a beautiful picture, though the windows itself were a little dirty. The bathroom looked good too, although mine did not come with a bath tub. The toilet came with a bidet and I thought it was really cool. The room and bathroom were separated by a clear window that, fortunately, also came with a blind.

Breakfast in the morning was made worthwhile with a good spread of choices and tasted pretty good. One of the better hotel breakfasts I’ve had. I will look forward to my next visit to BCC.
