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.

A place like Balikpapan is having a property which is in the best part of the city. A pleasant living hotel with all facilities and excellent food. Good swimming pool and other facilities. It is situated in a part of a very good mall, so one will find all shopping, food and living at the same place. Rooms are good... More

I booked this hotel as I didn't see any of the IHG brand hotels, which I normally use, in Balikpapan. The staff were very cordial and helpful. The property seemed like it has had a recent makeover as the faint smell of paint was ever present in the room and the corridor. The décor was spartan and the furniture looked... More
