This hotel was recommended to us by family who live in Balikpapan. The price was very very reasonable. Whilst the hotel is a little on the dated side, it did not affect our stay. The staff were fantastic and very helpful, you could change money at the hotel, and the spa was lovely (for massage). The room service food was also excellent. The best feature was the cleaning of our rooms each day. Everything was neatly tidied up, and the room was spotless. Lastly, the breakfast offered was outstanding.

Well turned out hotel by the city sea front (not beach). We went to Berau and on to the Derawan Archipelago. Had a great time there, but the sea journey was very bumpy and long in a little speedboat with no toilet. Weather at this time of year is not the best and will not improve much, we are told, until March or so. Still we had a good time snorkelling and diving.
We needed a place to overnight since the connecting flight on our return was next day. But this hotel is quite well placed in Balikpapan. Food was good with both western and Asian varieties in their buffet breakfast.
