A really good place to stay, location wise - it is very central and it provides you with a nice view of the water and the city at the same time The Service is very good, they are trying to bring some European dishes in the menu and the staff is very polite and attentive to detail

Returned to the Aston after 2 years, not much changed but saying that it's not a bad thing. Clean rooms, good service and ok breakfast. Breakfast has heaps of variety so no dramas. Wouldn't mind if they considered to looking to upgrade the rooms a little. Thanks 😄

Okay, the title says it all, I was not pleased. When I reached the hotel to check in after a very long day (morning flight, all day of work til 10 p.m.), they said they don't have any booking under my name. I checked back to my office and they said they already booked and the hotel had even confirmed... More

An amazing hotel in the heart of Balikpapan. Spectacular setting and rooms. We were there for a recent wedding. Wedding party at pool side and restaurants was incredible. Pool area was too beautiful. Price not outrageous. Spent two nights in here and it was well worth it. We got the Royal Suite and it was quite large suite. Very modern,... More

This is more of a serviced apartment than a straight hotel. The room comes with a small kitchen, living room and a balcony. Location is on the main strip. Nice pool with views of the sea. Breakfast was good so was dinner the night before. Highly recommended. Probably the Best Aston in Indonesia.
