The hotel is close to the sea, nice view, with narrow lobby. When i take a look to a desk in the room, it's really below standard for hotel as premises as Aston group. Over all it's a nice and good hotel.

I write this at 9.30pm on a Tuesday evening listening to the very loud live entertainment for a private party which also prevented us from using the pool when we arrived. Not quite the relaxing finish to a long day of travel we'd hoped for. Better luck tomorrow night, but we'll probably try somewhere different when we return to Balikpapan... More

Definitely must ask for sea view. Not among the best sea view I've seen, but I think it's better than the city view. The staffs are very friendly and helpful, really trying to make the stay enjoyable.

The lobby is very small, very not comfortable. The hotel attached with apartment so the buildings are very compact. The staffs are helpful, room quite clean, and i really love the pool that are facing the sea. You'll feel relaxed just by sitting near the pool witn the sea breeze.

This hotel was number 1 in trip advisor and as another reviewer said I cannot understand how! The location and design of the hotel is nice but the standard room we were given was awful. The main negative though was it was so crowded with so many people making a noise, eating, drinking and smoking in all the public places.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. Staff is nice and adequate. Rooms need some maintenance, pool is used for party's, so we did not swim. But location is very good, we used an angkot to go to the mall etc. Breakfast has everything we wanted, even a real cappuccino.

Decided to stay in this hotel because tripadvisor rated this hotel no 1 in Balikpapan. The check in was fast. The room is huge, apartment-like, with 2 bedrooms. This is a typical hotel in many Indonesian cities whereby they try to build luxury hotels but fail to maintain well. The property is supposed to be nice with a beach front... More

I ordered the airport pick up service and was picked up by a friendly staff member at the airport. However I had to wait 30minutes before the vehicle arrived which was very annoying for such an overpriced service. In the hotel itself the staff was very slow and not very friendly.
