I stayed here because I thought this Hotel is clean, but it is NOT. The room is a bit dusty and I cannot stand the bathroom towel. The towel is outrageous (cheap material) as it cannot absorb water. You are still wet no matter how many times you rub yourself with the towel. Silly huh? Overall I will not stay... More

The hotel is beautiful. Be it pool, mini golf or the entrance to the hotel, everything is so lovely and quaint. The superior rooms are spacious with big balcony. However the rooms are not maintained properly. Beds were not very comfortable and sound proofing was terrible. One could hear people talking outside room easily. The hotel has potential as the...

In general the hotel is nice and quiet,contrast with the surrounding busy roads, offices, and kampung, thanks to the small forest belt covering the hotel. The hotel is an old (luxurious) hotel in East Kalimantan. I spent a night in one of the old rooms, though the hotel has new premises and rooms. The room and bathroom were good, but... More

Me and my family stayed here for 2 night. We plan pick this hotel only because it's location; it's adjacent to one of the mall in the city, and it's near the downtown. The green rain forest-like environment was great, it's good to take the kids for a stroll around the hotel. That was the upside. The downside: first, the... More

As mentioned by others before, the rooms are large, though a bit outdated. Staff was always friendly and very welcoming. Furthermore, the hotel has a great swimming pool, nice garden and good breakfast buffet. Unfortunately the internet connection was sometimes weak and could not be accessed inside the room. During my last stay, the shower did not properly work, only... More

We stayed here for 1 night and were very disappointed. The rooms were dark and smelled of stale smoke. The sheets were damp and the bathroom had a 1980s purple suite that was covered in stains. the whole hotel, with the exception of the reception area, just feld tired. this is all such a shame as it has such a...

I stayed at the old part of this hotel for 2 days. The standard room was dirty, there was dust on top of the table & the side table. The old fridge was smelly and there were mould on the floor of the bathroom and the shower pressure is low. The good thing about the hotel is the pool and... More

Comfort place to stay at Samarinda, located top of the hill, with greeny surrounding. The room and bathroom are spacious but it has no hot water jug in the room, we have to request hot water at front office. Variety of sport facilities, like swimming pool, table tennis, tennis court, mini golf, fitness centre and good for jogging around the... More

When I spent my time in this hotel, my feeling is just like: I am in east Kalimantan... Because of the local music at night, the interior design of loby, and supported atmosphere...
