Nice enough hotel on beach in Balikpapan, although rooms and general condition getting very tired and aged now. Bit for the purpose of quick overnight visit for seminar was suitable. Breakfast and lunch in restaurant was sufficient without excelling. First time in that region so nothing to compare it with. Just don't expect resort style quality. Value I suppose for what was paid

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip. The location was great and the room was comfy. I was booked above some bar or club which had very loud music. I contacted the front desk and was put into a quiet room. I slept well all night. The bed was clean and good enough. The breakfast was a bit average but enough to fill me up.

Overall the location is good and rooms are quiet and clean. That's what maters most on a business trip.

stayed a week in the hotel.
my first impression, this hotel must have "been" one of the favourite hotel in Balikpapan.
pluses first:
the staf are very friendly. provide us with very valuable infrmation about the city.
check in process is quite fast. location is in the middle of two (maybe the only 2) bigest shopping mall in balikpapan.

area for improvement:
the hotel is quite old with aging furnitures. breakfast is standard.
bed is standard, pillows are also standard.
there's a big gap on the ceiling above my bath tub where i can see the building structures between floors.

tried the borneo pub. it's not entertaining at all (according to me).

this hotel is probably have been outmatched by the other new and bigger hotel in the city.

compared to the facilities and services that we can get in Jakarta, this hotel is overpriced.

We get a pretty good rate so it's not so bad staying there. We needed adjoining rooms which were supplied. We were attending a couple of functions being held in the hotel, so it was more for convenience than anything. The functions were reasonably well done. The hotel is showing her age though (I first stayed there when it first opened in the early 90s). Just looking a bit tired. Very basic breakfast, and some of the other facilities are a bit tired. If you're looking for a bed for the night with access to a pub and reasonably quick escape to the airport, it's not a bad place to stay.

This is a rather old hotel. However, old does not mean run down. It is still very well maintained.

A quieter hotel, as in less busy. Check in the fine, and the staff are friendly. If you like seaside view, make sure you get the rooms facing the seaside.

Want to go straight to the beach? There you are. It is not a very long walk as the hotel has a seaside restaurant, which only opens in the evening.

Nice place to relax.
