An amazing hotel in the heart of Balikpapan. Spectacular setting and rooms. I usually come to Balikpapan for business trip and choose staying at another hotel due to its loaction nearby office. However, this time I came along with family for a short getaway and I chose Anovotel balikpapan.

My girlfriend and I decided to have a change of scenery and stay in a hotel in Balikpapan for Saturday night, 25 January. After reading reviews and the Novotel Balikpapan Website we decided to stay at the Novotel, partly due to the pool, she wanted to swim in it after seeing the photos.

Not a fancy hotel but its got all the needs for business trip. The restaurant offer decent variety of international foods. But be aware that the location is not exactly on the main road like Aston Balikpapan.
