Twin Standard Room : The size is okay with separate shower and closet. Also a 24 inch TV a bit too small. The bed is comfortable, other than that standard. Scenery : not much to see other than roads and nearby small houses Breakfast : not many choices, around 5 dish with a soup, toast with 3 jams choice, a little salad bar and traditional food. WiFi : Sometimes dropped but has decent speed up to 20 Mbps Price : Compared to other hotel budget is quite good in terms of location

Nice hotel in a major road of Balikpapan, close to main attraction. The room is clean but small, and typical Indonesian breakfast (no continental breakfast). Room rate is very inexpensive, but beware the lowest room rates are without breakfast.

Sorry, cheap can be good but this is made so super cheap that nothing about it is good. First and foremost it stinks. Then everything is a tad unhygienic, door frames are dirty, skin stinks after towel rub, spots in bedding, mattress is cheap. And a super small sink to wash yourself in, spoilers unavoidable. No place to place your toiletries. Save in the name of saving? Last time I was here. Nevertheless staff are friendly and if you need a quick one from airport to night to airport, so do it. Wifi is free as is breakfast.

Location : Good location, in the city center, easy access to airport, dining place, etc. Room : I stayed at their single room for 1 night. The room was quite small but OK. Quite clean and tidy. Unfortunately, when I stayed there I found out that the free mineral water were already opened. It seems that when the housekeeping clean up the room, they forgot to replace it with the new one. A little bit mess at the bathroom, since the shower area have almost the same level as the closet and sink, so it will leave a mess after we're taking a shower. Maybe they can put a little bit more barrier so water from the shower will not run to the other area. Staffs : The staffs were great! From the security guard, front desk, and all the attendants were helpful, friendly, and warm. Breakfast : Very basic. Need more variety. But the service was helpful and great!

The security guard and breakfast attendants were very helpful and friendly. The receptionists were also friendly and could communicate efficiently when providing information about tourism spots nearby. The internet connection was fast and smooth. The room, though, should be maintained better. There was a pretty large sticky spot on the floor (coffee spill, i guess?). The bathroom mat was already damp and dirty. One of the bed mattress was a bit smelly (I ordered a twin room). My mood was eased when I woke up I was able to see the sea through the window next to my bed (room was at 5th floor).

I was here in the hotel around end of October. Too bad I only stayed for one night, but based on my almost two days and one night stay, I can tell this is nice hotel in Balikpapan. I've seen better but compare to what I have experienced, this hotel is definitely worth your budget and yet give you some advantages. lets start from some plus point experienced from my stay :fantastic location!!! close to the airport and shopping centers. I stayed in the 6th floor and I feel pleased with my room,even it wasnt big enough like what I expected but it is nice and comfy too (so Thumbs up for this), The aircon is great and working nicely, the waters running so well both hot and cold, the Front staffs were great in during my check in and check out, they help me in suggesing places to buy some souvenirs and where to go during my short stay. the Cons : the restaurant was an empty meeting room which function as moving restaurant (I think so), breakfast did not have many choices and to be honest was little bland. The Wifi connection was okay, both of breakfast service and wifi were just okay and i have experienced better on the other same budget or class. despite the cons I mentioned, this hotel is surely recommend! I highly want to stay again in this hotel again if i have to come to Balikpapan again. keep up the good work WhizPrime.
