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

I've stayed in this hotel many times since 2001, and I think this hotel has been doing good job in preserving quality and high value of money. This hotel is a bit off from city center, most of the guests are in business trip either for oil companies or stated owned refinery - all with offices or plant nearby. Anyway,... More

I was here for one night on business. We had reserved non-smoking rooms but upon arrival were told only smoking was available. My coworker was not happy and insisted upon non-smoking rooms. Some back room discussions were had and finally they said ok, non-smoking rooms. My "non-smoking room" came complete with three ash trays. It didn't smell too bad, and... More

The welcome and check in was friendly and efficient. The rooms are huge and very clean. The restaurant serves great food . There was a slight translation problem with a few of the staff, but nothing that couldn't be overcome. I had absolutely nothing to complain about. The distance from the airport is a bit far.
