I stay for one night here because my flight was canceled, a friend suggest me to stay here and so I did. I find the location is at the most trendy area in town, just above the e walk mall. First impresion with the recreption staff was nice and friendly. Lobby is not a big and intimidating one, its very... More

I am staying here frequently not because I wanted to but mostly because I have to. The company which I work to has chosen this hotel as their preferred accomodation. Airport transfer, mostly late. I usually take the last flight which I arrived usually at midnight. The hotel car mostly late. But last time, it was on time. Only one... More

stay here for weekend with my sister...the location of this hotel is very close to E-Walk mall, which is in the same building.. The room is standard, with minimalist interior design. the bathroom is quiet big actually.. Bellagio restaurant has many variation of foods. What we like the most is the Jacuzzi, we can see the view of Balikpapan..

I loved this hotel tucked away inside the E-walk shopping centre. Once you go up to the lobby level on the first floor you enter a little oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Balikpapan. The rooms were large and have good views over and around the city. The restaurant was well appointed and service was wonderful, the breakfast... More

If I could give a zero for cleanliness and service, I would. Checked in for 3 nights for business visit here. The first room they checked me into had laundry that didn't dry completely and left a bad, pungent smell. When I asked for it yo be changed, took them at least half an hour to senf someone with new... More

Make no mistake. This is not a western hotel and you will be disappointed if you expect western quality and service. The staff do try hard to please, they just don't know how. Here are some highlights from my stay: There were no non-smoking rooms available so I had to stay in a smoking room. There is no carpet in... More

Because of its sauna, gym, pool and jacuzzi facilities, I stayed in Grand Jatra Balikpapan. I got a very big room, large sofa, rich bathroom interior, but small TV. The lobby was also great and the restaurant served delicious foods. The horrible one was just the jacuzzi. They said the pool was underconstraction. How can a five-star hotel made an... More

The Jatra Hotel is located in the Balikpapan Super Block, like most malls and shopping centres in Indonesia it has been abbreviated to BSB. Excellent location for the hotel especially if you are there for a few days on business. The mall is typically full of resto's and the usual array of shops. There is also a Foodmart in the... More

At approximately $60/night this hotel is great value. Tidy rooms with nice bathroom and good bed. Pekanbaru itself it not the most charming place I've been but that can't be blamed on the hotel. Nice breakfeast menu in a very nice venue. Did not have time to try the gym. Pool area looked really nice. Would recommend this hotell.
