On the way back from Bontang we stayed here for one night & it was not a very good experience. The place needs an overhaul. The room I was given (609) took almost full night to cool down. Breakfast spread was so-so & the work table was heavily infested with ants which went in my laptop & kept on coming... More

The facility itself is very outdated. Ex- Very poor accomodation for the business traveler who works from the room a lot. Only ether cable hook up so you must sit an uncomfortable side chair to be online. Very awkward, uncomfortable work area for computer Other than changing the sheets and wiping down the bathroom floor the room really doesnt get... More

Even I am given no-smoking room but the smoke is still smelling in the room, may be they just hide the ashtray and name it :"non-smoking room" The horrible thing is I was touching electric-shock when open the freezer, then I realized that water is drop from up,...

Balik Papan was a fascinating provincial capital. It was clean, well maintained and orderly. The Hotel was centrally located and well suited for the business traveler. The lobby area is spacious with high ceiling. In November the air in Balik Papan was rather still and humid. Arriving in mid afternoon, the lobby area was too warm for comfort. Luckily checking...

A perfectly pleasant stay. Excellent location. Beautiful service and facilities. Great rooms, quite large and very clean. The only thing was the disturbance of prayer at daybreak (actually 4 am) but the hotel cannot do much about it. I actually asked to be moved to the other side (seaview) and they gave me another room. Wonderful open-air swimming pool. the... More

I find this hotel in a very strategic & convinient location since the biggest mal in Balikpapan (which is Balikpapan Plaza) is literally in front of this hotel. For me, I always put location as my number 1 criteria in finding hotels since I'm a female soli traveler and I only stay in Balikpapan just for one night in order... More

Good value hotel with friendly price, good location, and not considered as a "Red Light" hotel. Pros : - Great location (located at city center) - In front of a mall (Balikpapan Center, Pasifica food court) - Great deal with as low to US$ 42 (IDR 375k) all-in price for the weekend (Breakfast and tax incl.). Other similar class hotel... More
