I managed to try the Japanese restaurants and the taste is very bad. Sushi and edemame is not fresh. But they serve Japanese beer. Room is rather old and quite poor maintained. Amenities are not attractive. Parking available but quite limited

The hotel is located quite outside Balikpapan downtown but it wont be a big deal when you have good room, great food and very helpful and friendly hotel staff during your stay. I would like to see a little bit of brighter light in the room, just a little bit. The rest, just great and keep it up.

The hotel is a bit far from the Airport and the main parts of the city ... There is nothing close by except an KFC which is right outside and a local market which is 10 mins walk i guess... The hotel does have its plus points which i think are its staff who are very friendly and hospitable ...... More

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.
