This hotel might be the right one for those who -> do not mind hearing music in their rooms till late night -> do not mind a pool area where it is noisy due to many kids shouting and screaming -> do not mind a wash room which actually is not clean (digest the pic enclosed) The staff is friendly...

I stayed for one night, overall I give a good mark for this hotel. However it's quite old and kinda creepy somehow since the light is minimum. I stayed here because all of my team stayed here. But most of expat loves to stay here.

What i like from this old hotel is its bed. It's really comfortable. If you need a good sleep, then it might be a best choice. If you are lucky, you will get a nice view room. The breakfast is just ok. I stayed here several times and keep coming back

This is the second time i stay in this hotel, first time was about 6 years ago for long stay. I was asking non smoking room with beach view, but I got housing view (well, one side of the hotel is a housing complex..). The room was good enough, clean, good bed, but it seems old-fashioned compare to 6 years... More

This is a luxury hotel that is past its prime. On the positive side, the bed was comfortable, the room large, and the lobby, breakfast buffet, and swimming pool quite nice. It also has direct access to a private beach, though the beach is kind of dirty. However, the hotel needs to be renovated, since it's showing its age. For... More

After long hours trip commuting Balikpapan - Samarinda - Balikpapan, around 250 km, I finally arrived at this hotel exactly around midnight. Exhausted and almost crashed out, the first impression was this hotel would be a great place to sleep. Check in process was a bit slow, it took me about 30 minutes to get the room, although my company... More

The room was to old and smell bad. The place was in the middle of the city and they have access to the beach. I've got the room with beach view so it was nice to have a room with beach view but when I saw my room from outside I can see clearly into my room so it's not... More

I remember this hotel was good (it was Dusit,then) but now its old and doesnt look clean. I paid for a superior room and asked for a non-smoking room since i am with baby and toddler. But was given on the smoking level floor since it was fully booked. Well ok, tried to tolerate that. But when I entered the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, because it has a nice swimming pool (children pool and adult pool are separated) and a private beach, so we didn't need to go to Kemala Beach like we used to. Our five years old son really loved the pool, he went there 3 times during our two nights stay. Its location... More

Nice old room complete with bath tub and old style sofa. Love everything about the hotel. You could have access to the beach. Sea front pool and good size fitness center. Real good option for Balikpapan stay. Highly recommended.
