The hotel interior (room, restaurant) looks majestic at a glance, but there are many signs of aging here and there. I inserted my magnetic room card but it failed to switch on the room electricity, so I had to carefully walked in the darkness to find telephone to contact housekeeping. And right below the desk I found panels to switch... More

This hotel is actually very interesting, with a classic shape and the rooms are decorated with ancient lights, maybe they hope if the customer staying in this hotel, they will have a different experience. Unfortunately the hotel antiquity is not supported by a good maintenance of supporting facilities, I found that the stop contact is dirty and like plastic overheated... More

The staff there is quite helpful but there are those off times when they are not in a helpful mood... Me and... More

The hotel is impressive at a glance (they even have a vintage Mercedes in the lobby) but once you step in the room and check the details, you'll realize that it's actually a bit outdated. The floor is made from expensive wood but is very scratched, the bathroom is covered in marble but the shower is a bit rusty and... More

Every time I traveled I preferred a good and pleasant hotel, and I really satisfy with this hotel. The location is just near the city with good facilities around the hotel. I think this is the best hotel in Balikpapan since many Indonesia President stay here when they visit Balikpapan.

The hotel is an old one but still nice and clean. Breakfast is far from impressive. Price for drink is incredibly expensive. IRD 40.000 for a bottle of mineral water, 600 ml. Wow!! There is no sofas in the lobby where you can meet your friend outside the room, or for waiting. Not so convenient for meeting friends there.

The hotel provided great pick up at the new airport and check in was easy. My room was okay and clean. I think it is an older sort of hotel especially the pool area - quite dated. Overall a good sort of hotel except for one thing - cigarette smells and smoking allowed everywhere. I know it is Indonesia but... More

I have been to this hotel for business several times in past 4 years. The hotel needs a renovation, Internet very slow and weak signal in rooms. Room was dirty. Staff and food are good but there is better places to stay in Balikpapan.
