Been staying in this hotel for most of numerous visits to Balikpapan before 2012, mostly between Jakarta and the offshore rigs around. The hotel was definitely has seen better days, formerly under Dusit management.
- Has private beach with access adjacent to hotel.
- Gym equipments was average. Instructor is there and could give you advices which is a good point.
- Staff is genuinely care and friendly
- WIFI connections is fast and free (get the password from receptionist)
- Breakfast here is good, with variety of Indonesian (love the Nasi Uduk!) and continental to choose from.
- Meeting rooms is somewhat OK.
- Bed and pillow is averagely OK.
- Bathroom is nice, with enough amenities. Shower is hot.
- Transfer to/from airport by hotel with Toyota Innova only IDR 60k which is pretty cheap and good value compared to local taxi (Mawar/Borneo) mostly using small sedan with IDR 50k.
- Rooms looked dated and seen better days
- Some has smoke smell even though I've asked for non-smoking room
- Standard/Superior rooms is pretty small. Ask for executive/suite/club rooms on top floor. Ask for room with sea view.
- Club lounges is pretty standard and small. Enough for having morning tea and snacks.
- Food price in beach restaurant seems exorbitant by local standard.
- No hotel loyalty program exist as far as I know.
Overall, I would stay in this hotel if only for 1-3 days and will prefer another better hotel in town for longer stays.
