Stay overnight due to first flight in the morning. The plus point of course its location which near to airport. the minus: I dont know if it is allowed but the therapist offered a happy ending
The breakfast offered various menu, but the food presentation kills the appetite.

I'm a frequent guest of room 251 at Santika Hotel, Balikpapan. It is one of very few hotel where you can see plane taking off and landing from the comfort of your bed, while watching TV at the same time. This room is right et the end of the runway and apron (see photos). I like the courtesy of the staff here. Hotel front desk can help you check in for your flight, and walk 5 minutes to the boarding gate. Room is clean and breakfast is not bad

Room Tip: If it is available, ask for the room with runway view

I had to ask three people during my trip from the arrival hall to the airport reception: There are no sign telling you how to go to the hotel from the airport. This a bad.
I found out that no all staff is capable to speak English. Management, assign other positions to these people.
Bring your own knife when you take your breakfast as only a spoon and fork is served. The management has to do their homework again: it is eying Indonesian clientele. Don't expect other cheese then the well known Kraft processed cheese in plastic wrapping.

In the period I used two rooms and in both of them I faced a broken toilet roll holder in the bathroom.

Have to bow to the internet connection which is fast and reliable.

This hotel is located in the Sepinggan airport, so for you who just transit or just few activities in town this hotel is highly recommended...
It is about 20 minutes to the city center by car.
The room is big and clean, only shower in the room no bath tub, the air condition is very good. Internet speed is fast through cable in the room and wifi in the lobby area.
Breakfast menu is good, mix with traditional and international choices...

Room Tip: Runway view for executive room

I stay here just one night since I have to catch a 7 am flight the next day out of balikpapan. Got the deluxe room for rp 1.4 million including the mini bar content and buffet breakfast. The room is huge with a living room and 2 LCD screen. My only problem with the room is the low water pressure in the showers and the poor design of the bathroom ehich cause water to splash ecerywhere during baths. Also the floor is sticky so I had to put on the slippers. TV channels selection ate okay. Breakfast selection is standard. What they should improve is the lighting in the lobby hallway and restaurant, it is v poor and doesnt make me feel I am in a hotel. The terminal B outside is much more well-lit.

This is a clean, satisfying hotel and don't forget the best is the Airport Access on the lower level of this hotel. Sometimes you can ask the staff to help you checking-in your flight. But I prefer to have breakfast, check-in, return to room and relax until my flight time.
