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

The bar and nightclub is interesting. This is probably the best place to stay when working in Balikpapan. Grab a taxi out and he will take you to wherever you want to go and need. Plenty of expats around to keep good conversation all working in oil and gas. Helpful staff and clean sheets, water is indonesian spec so you... More

We approached a Guest Services personnel, Grace, informed us that we could bring our own beverage to skybar without charges or only with a 'very' small additional charges. Then we happily bring our guest to Skybar at the evening, unfortunately the restaurant sound rude to us and strictly don't allow to have our beverage there. The situation is extremely embarrass...

This hotel is far from five stars, it is old and run down and with far too many staff doing absolutely nothing. I tried the Skybar and didn't get waited on, I went to the Lobby Lounge and sat for over 30 minutes and the closest one of the waiters came to me was about 30 meters. I've eaten in... More

The hotel is located right in the town and stone throw always from local eateries and restaurants. Local eateries for breakfast is just about 10mins walk away. Furnitures in room look dated in design. However the room is HUGE. Wifi available is poor. Overall still a good hotel.
