The hotel is well located in Balikpapan and the staff were very helpful. Get a good bargain for a mini van. The beaches are beautiful and they even have a Balinese atmosphere by the seaside. The food was nice .

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

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

This hotel is located in the Sepinggan airport, so for you who just transit or just few activities in town this hotel is highly recommended... It is about 20 minutes to the city center by car. 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
