Hotel's Favorite
The most complete hotel in town with superb breakfast and good choices of food. I got the new room and it was excellent. Friendly staff and complete facilities. I was offered to use Blue Sky Lounge that is located in Jakarta before my flight to Balikpapan. Eventhough the reviews said that its an old hotel, it doesn't seem like one to me. Will come back for sure again. Thank you Blue Sky

Breakfast is also very extraordinary, the variety is very complete including the typical food of the Balikpapan area such as Nasi Kuning. I will definitely come back to stay here

Now, I will recommend the best hotel in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan. 4 Nights, I stayed at Blue Sky Hotel Balikpapan. Did a business trip working there. Let's start, landing at sepinggan international airport, there is a pick up team with mr. sunyoto. (free service). Then, the trip to the hotel is only 10 minutes. Arrived at the hotel I entered the room, and felt very comfortable and full of warmth and plus a very spacious room. The next day, I had breakfast. The food provided, from Indonesian food, western food until Japanese food. My favorite, Soto Medan and sushi! Overall, I really enjoy all the services and facilities provided by Blue Sky Hotel Balikpapan. Do not forget! you can must try SPA massages & pool

Had to stay here for work for 5 weeks in a 3 month period. My first room was one of the older style rooms facing the road, which was a bit noisy. However the room was spotless and well maintained. My next two rooms were in the newer part. Both were spacious, clean and comfortable - one having a kitchenette and balcony. Food was good, but while on COVID quarantine the room service often arrived lukewarm, but given the large numbers of people ordering room service at the same time this may explain it. The only real complaint I had about the food was that when I ordered the burger, twice the burger came undercooked (raw in the middle) despite me ordering well done. However the rest of the meals were delicious, and I can recommend the food from the Japanese and Chinese on site restaurants. The staff were excellent and very friendly. I would be delighted to return to this hotel if ever in Balikpapan again.

Currently staying in The Blue Sky Hotel whilst Covid-19 quartining before joining a vessel for offshore work. Food is of a high standard. Some rooms such as mine are a little dated but other rooms are more modern. Staff are excellent, attentive and friendly.

It's a pleasant stay during our stay at the hotel. All was fine. The room was ample enough to accommodate 2 adult and 1 child. The floor was equipped with thick carpet. The bath room equipped with bat tub so you can have a long bath in it. The breakfast variety was good enough. From East to West menu available. The pool available for adult and child.

I’ve stayed here twice for work and enjoyed it very much. The food in the restaurant is very good and plentiful. The rooms are comfortable and after traveling for thirty hours was just what I needed. It can be a little noisy at times , but is worth the money. Everyone of the staff I met there are very helpful and friendly.
