Nice location.. Very close to plaza balikpapan.. Nice room.. Tidy and clean.. But the TV is old and not a flat tv (which i'm totally fine with that)... The AC was very cold and it's perfect because Balikpapan is really hot.. The water in the pool makes my hair frizzzzzzyyyy and the breakfast taste average

Staying for less than 24 hours in Balikpapan, I choose this hotel mainly because of the location directly opposite Balikpapan Trade Center (BTC) or also known as Balikpapan Plaza. The excellent location helps you to do your shopping and back to the hotel for little bit of rest and then continue again. It gives you the whole new meaning to... More

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The facility itself is very outdated.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

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
