The location is a bit far from downtown although Balikpapan is not a big city. I got a room that looks very old although it is a very spacious room. It serves great breakfast and I enjoy the chinese restaurant just near the main lobby.

I spend one night in this nice hotel and enjoyed the stay. It's clean, good service and large rooms with much comfort. Only some corridors needs some more attention. I recommend to dine at the Japanese restaurant!

We used to stay in this hotel before there was Santika Hotel Balikpapan. All of our companies's regional meetings & trainings were organized in this hotel. It's an integrated hotel with reasonable facilities & quality. However, we moved our stays & activities to Santika Hotel Balikpapan to be closer to the airport for the practical mobility reason.
