I have fond memories of the Dusit hotel now known as le grander. Thats why I always pay it a visit when in balik. Its tragic to see this grand place run so badly and what has become of the once thriving Borneo Bar. Now a sports bar....come on.... how tacky...and whats with the fat man serving the drinks ?...

Le Grandeur looks like it used to be a much nicer hotel than it is today. Generally it is getting run down and from my 2 day stay, it looks as if guests are turning their back on it. Maintenance issues are common with the plumbing; faucets are falling apart and the water runs brown in some rooms for 15... More

I don't know what happened to this place. I stayed many times 4-8 years ago, and it was the best choice for a hotel in Balikpapan. That has changed completely these days. Very sad to see this place being run to the ground so fast. Better try another place next time.

Room is convenience but breakfast is poor. Same menu for 2 days stay in there. Nice view and easy access to beach. Receiptionist and staff is very friendly and helpfully. Old hotel with old guest. Wifi access is good. No issue for business purpose.

Nice enough hotel on beach in Balikpapan, although rooms and general condition getting very tired and aged now. Bit for the purpose of quick overnight visit for seminar was suitable. Breakfast and lunch in restaurant was sufficient without excelling. First time in that region so nothing to compare it with. Just don't expect resort style quality. Value I suppose for... More

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip. The location was great and the room was comfy. I was booked above some bar or club which had very loud music. I contacted the front desk and was put into a quiet room. I slept well all night. The bed was clean and good enough. The breakfast was a bit... More

We get a pretty good rate so it's not so bad staying there. We needed adjoining rooms which were supplied. We were attending a couple of functions being held in the hotel, so it was more for convenience than anything. The functions were reasonably well done. The hotel is showing her age though (I first stayed there when it first... More
