Nothing really bad about this hotel but you really have to dig old decoration to appreciate the hotel style. Feels like going back to the 80s or early 90s ever since you step in the lobby. The lobby lounge was a bit dark but it goes with the vintage style I think. Breakfast was good but not great, room rates... More

Actually this hotel is located not far away from the airport. However, the Gran Senyiur staff will pick you up from the airport. The Hotel has a big statue in the lobby and in the other part the put classic car. The service from this hotel is quite good, if you have any complain they will fix it soon. Therefore... More

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 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Mercedes in the lobby) but once you step in the room and check the details, you'll realize that it's actually a bit outdated.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.
