We stayed 3 days 2 nights in this hotel after moving from 2 other hotels in Balikpapan. We should have come straight to this hotel but because of some negative reviews in this blog, I decided to try 2 others. But finally we gave it a try. We, a family with a teenage son never regret checking in to this hotel. The moment we reached the hotel, we found that the security was tight (which is very good), the treatment given to guests were superb. The lobby is spacious and of high standard. The counter staff was very pleasant, friendly and helpful. When we enter the room, it was spacious and big enough for three of us. The king size bed was big enough for 3 of us. We had a good and comfortable stay in this hotel. Even though Balikpapan did not offer us much attractions and places to go where we felt much regret to have stayed 6 days in Balikpapan. But Novotel has made our trip memorable by giving us a satisfying stay with facilities like gym and swimming pool. Even though it is only 4 star but the treatment given was 5 star. We also found the hotel to be in strategic location for good and quality food. We just need to walk down to Ocean's Restaurant, Rumah Makan Orient and Holland Bakery to enjoy our food, seafood, buns, cakes and lemper (rice with rendang chicken) in Holland Bakery.
