For the first time I choose to stay at this hotel for review. I was check in at 6.00 P.M Inside the room dark enough and smelly. All the furniture at my room was dusty. The bathroom looks like hell with the bathtub not polish. Terrible night for me even I just stay for 1 night. Never think to come... More

As a Balikpapan resident, Le Grandeur has always been one of the city icon. It's a quaint hotel that has decent facilities and its own private beach (the one and only here). I've stayed here at the club suit as part of our wedding package. The room was spacious and clean, bathroom was too, Bed is comfy, and gorgeous beach... More

Like many hotels in SE Asia the Le Grandeur was once a majestic piece of architecture with impressively furnished rooms, gardens and general facilities. Time has passed and the age of the complex is certainly showing. In a word the facilities appear tired and overall condition is in decline. The buildings are not falling apart but pretty much every where... More

A very good option if staying in Balikpapan, the rooms aren't new but do the job. Breakfast is Ok. It's got a small gym and The pool is clean. I suggest to go to Ocean's for seafood/fish although in-room service is not bad. You may consider the Jatra Hotel if you want to walk to shops and restaurants as it's... More

With so many beautiful locations to visit in Indonesia, one has to be honest and say that Balikpapan would probably not feature on most people's list of holiday destinations. However should you, like ourselves be passing through Balikpapan or on a stop over, you are probably looking at one of these four hotels for your stay: Aston, Le Grandeur, Gran... More

I was there for 3 days business meeting. My room was in the corner, had no nice view from window (all I saw just trees), had no idea why the capsule door closer was broken (as if it had been robbed), spider webs in bathroom ceiling, very poor lighting. The breakfast was so-so, had a trouble with lift door (could... More

This is one of my favorite hotel in Balikpapan. The building is not new, but very well maintained. The room is compact, but comfy. It is located in the 'heart' of the city, and has a private beach too!

Big hotel, pretty room, nice towels and bedsheets, nice restaurants and great buffet breakfast. The only flaws are the lighting in the room was not my liking (yellow light) and the second time i went there, i got an old room with strange room setting (the ac didnt face my bed so i was sweating).
