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.

It is a little like stepping back in time in a nice way. Hotel was very clean and staff helpful and friendly. Room was a descent size and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities. Went for a meal in the Sky Grill which was very pleasant and I enjoyed the meal. I did have a pool view but did... More

This hotel is not bad its just getting a bit old and is in need of renovation. The rooms are spacious just a bit worn. The location is good right on the waterfront and it has a nice pool right beside the beach. It was difficult though to find some staff to get pool towels and I ended up having... More

Saya sudah beberapa kali menginap di Hotel Gran Senyiur Balikpapan baik untuk kepentingan dinas maupun liburan. Hotel ini adalah hotel bintang 5 pertama di Balikpapan dan memiliki kamar yang sangat luas dan nyaman. Kelebihan lain dari hotel ini adalah memiliki Sky Bar di Lantai 8 yang mampu memberikan pemandangan terbaik dari Balikpapan city view. Sayangnya hotel ini seperti tidak bisa... More

Looking for a hotel with big room? For this hotel, you can do somersault in your room. The restaurants in this hotel, two, which I have eaten in, is also pretty good. Quite good for their Chinese restaurant. Since it is located on the hill, make sure you have enough energy to walk up the slope to get back to... More

If not mistaken, Senyiur is a local Kalimantan hotel chain, with another older version in Samarinda. With so many competitors, incl international brandin Balikpapan like aston, novotel, etc they managed to deliver a decent hotel. Services are generally good, food are terrific (should try the nachos, the best one so far in this part of the world), decent collection of... More

A decent choice for Balikpapan. The staff are uniformly friendly and attentive. The rooms are spacious and pretty clean. The bar and restaurant are OK. Wi-if works in the room, lobby and bar and it is pretty consistent. I had a couple of glitches with power going out and some of the outlets in the rooms don't work which makes... More

Stayed here again after a break of a number of years and not a lot has changed. The bedrooms are good and spacious, but the breakfast is not that great. It states that it is a five star hotel, but I think four stars would be a more correct rating. Went wandering around for the night club in the basement... More

I stayed for 4 nights on January 2014 and it was a very pleasant stay. Spent most of my times in hotel by working in my room and lobby lounge. I tried almost all hotel facilities except gym and swimming pool. Room is clean, and everything is working. Maintenance is good. Cleanliness is above average. In-room wifi is free and... More
