Reviewed July 23, 2013

This review is for the restaurant called le jardin which is located at the lobby level of the hotel. Years ago was a god european/french restaurant, but chef has changed even though he is French, the food has not improved. We were quite disappointed by all dishes. I suppose the chef should show a bit more presence in the kitchen for better supervision not letting things under the local crew. During our meal we did not get our glass of water replenished. We cannot stay the staff was busy with only tables. Unless you want to spend lot of money for poor quality food, then pass this place not good anymore.

Stayed there for 1 night. Good hotel, good service, stylish rooms, reception area, all designed in a classic style. Nonetheless it is quite an old hotel, so rooms bit worn down and not really comparable to or in the same league as modern hotels. However the hotel does have style and atmosphere, much more so than a standard business hotel.

Sky bar has a nice view and restaurant.

Been here for another exhibition visit on May 22 - 24. I choose this old style hotel due I need a rest after coming back from China.
This is 5 star hotel with a perfect services to you, the bed is very comfort, restaurant is good, food is perfect and the view from 7 floor or 8 floor is cool. See the city of Balikpapan at night.
With location in the middle of down, and you can walk only 10 minutes from hotel to buy a local traditional food at night. and 15 minutes walk to Balikpapan Mall and have a dinner near by the sea. It is perfect.

Room Tip: Choose a room with Balikpapan city view, or view to the sea.

As a 5 star hotel in Balikpapan, Gran Senyiur has fair rate. I loved the lounge as much i loved the room. I could see they have old fashinoned room and not so moderned. But it was fine, all equipments ran well and the meubelair were well maintained. They have a club at downlevel and restaurant on the top with very top view of the city.

Location was far from anywhere compared to another hotel. There was no greeting when we came to the front office, they were busy talking to each other. The room was not appropriate for a 5 star hotel, and you know what? The mini bar was empty!
The breakfast time was another dissapointment. The staff not quiet experienced to pamper guests.
Never want to stay in this hotel anymore.

This time I only stay for one night but after a couple of nights in novotel, I appreciated the facilities , service and ambience even more. Didnt get to try the sky bar though (still on my wish list for next time). Stayed in the Deluxe room which is huge, I think room size is like 7x7 sqm. Too much space for 1 person :) Bathroom is also spacious and all amenities you'd expect in such hotel. Water pressure is adequate, hot water works well so kudos to the team on job well done maintaining this hotel.

My only complaint on this stay was the female waiter in the breakfast room which had an attitude problem. The captain and the rest of the team were nice except for this particular woman.
