This is the perfect hotel to stay if you just need time to transit at sepinggan airport. The room quite nice, the price is good, breakfast also good. I just stayed that for a night because I had another flight to Jakarta. I do recommeded this hotel for those that only get several hours, and get another flight to get.

Due to its close location to the Balikpapan Airport (it is in the Airport area), this hotel is the right hotel for people on the move. You can check in late, spend the night & very early move to your destinations in East Kalimantan. When spend the night here, try the delicious "Ikan Bakar Bumbu Bali" ....... :-)

This is the second time I've stayed at the Santika. Both times I've been pleasantly suprised at the level of service I have received. The Deluxe rooms are a good size, cable internet, tea/coffee making facilities, flat screen TV and large shower area. The beds are comfortable and there is no intrusive airport noise so sleep quality was good. Furnishings... More

I'm a frequent guest of room 251 at Santika Hotel, Balikpapan. It is one of very few hotel where you can see plane taking off and landing from the comfort of your bed, while watching TV at the same time. This room is right et the end of the runway and apron (see photos). I like the courtesy of the... More

I had to ask three people during my trip from the arrival hall to the airport reception: There are no sign telling you how to go to the hotel from the airport. This a bad. I found out that no all staff is capable to speak English. Management, assign other positions to these people. Bring your own knife when you... More

The room is big and clean, only shower in the room no bath tub, the air condition is very good. Internet speed is fast... More
