The hotel is in good order with comfortable and clean rooms. Staff were friendly and helpful a tad slow at times. For me the only problem is it was a little to far away from where everything happens. It is an easy enough taxi ride of 15 - 20 minutes, not a problem but not a lot going on around... More

The hotel is possibly one of the oldest hotel in Balikpapan. However, its management ensures both routine maintenance and updates to continuously adapt with recent trend. The room size is spacious. The décor is modern too. They also have newly refurbished pool and restaurants. Important highlight for this hotel is the quality of the food, it's surely above average compared... More
