As I checked in late at night, I got a nice and spacious room with comfortable bed but it got some problem with bathroom equipments: broken bathtub's shower and the wc could not drain/ flushed properly. Since it's late night, I decided to rest for the night and let the hotel staff informed in the morning. The hotel staffs were so responsive and I got into another clean and proper equipped room. This time it came with the stunning sunrise view over the window.
Breakfast menu was great, it served bacon and sausages - I guessed it's the only hotel in town that served those menu. Lunch and dining experiences were just average with a bit of over-priced offer for the kind of food choices, with average taste. Hotel's elevators were confusing because they're not well lit ... the floor indicators were not lit at all that I had to struggle to see the floor numbers.
Overall, it's a nice stay and definitely will be my choice whenever I have to visit Balikpapan.
