    • Very nice property

      Reviewed 03 July 2019

      I checked in to a very friendly reception at this lovely property close to the International airport. Great place to stay for the night to catch a connecting flight the next morning. The restaurant was nice and the best part was one can even order Food from Gran and collect it in the lobby and bring to your room. I would recommend not for anyone. Oh! Its good value for money.

    • Need a make-over

      Reviewed 29 June 2019

      I give a rating of 'Very Good' only for the view I got from my room. I can see the airport - which amazingly not making too much noise when I'm in the room; and for the seaview - where I can spot an oil platform in a distance; reminds you that you are in the oil capital of Indonesia. Also 'Very Good' as the staffs are very firendly and helpful - allow me for early check-in and late check-out. The rest of the hotel need a make-over. Give it a fresh look. Lighter - brighter colours. I was suprised to see the state of the surface behind the check-in desk - that surface wood needs some furnish or even replacement. Kettle in my room has broken lid - which could harm as the lid just fall off when I pour boiled water into my mug.

    • Exceptionally great hotel for Aviation geeks and lovers!

      Reviewed 25 June 2019

      Great hotel for avgeek and planespotters! The location is near with Balikpapan Sepinggan Airport and has an awesome view of the mentioned airport runway and also with sea-view too. You can take both planes and ships photos. For taking airplane photos, at least 55mm lens is required. But it's more recommended to use lens focal length more than 100mm depending on how far and how big the aircraft (Twin Otter or another small propeller aircraft photo need at least >200mm focal length). Turn off your air conditioner or set it at ~24C if you want to take photos from windows, because the windows could become hazy if your room temperature too low and it takes quite time for the haze to disappear! Please note that you should ask hotel receptionist to reserve you a room with Runway view, which i recommends you to take room on 4th floor since it's the highest floor available. You should try contact them directly via phone some days before your stay, and follow up your special request two and one day before your stay. Normally the hotel started check-in time at 2pm, but if your desired room is available you can check-in early starting at 10am without any additional charge. For late check-out there is a charge that costs 25% from basic rate until 2/3pm if i'm not mistaken. Also, they offer free airport pick-up and drop-off service. For pick-up service, you should contact them in advance directly via phone at least one day before your stay. The bad thing is : - Wi-Fi connection is unforgivably slow, especially for 4-stars hotel standard. I have been staying on several much cheaper backpacker hostels both in Indonesia and abroad, and they have much better internet connection. Try using your phone tethering feature since internet connection from your mobile provider may more reliable than the hotel's Wi-Fi. - Please note that there is a minimum IDR 100.000,- refundable deposit required if you're paying using cash. - Maybe just my taste but in my opinion, the breakfast menu taste is quite plain. The good thing is there are a lot of options for your breakfast in this hotel.

      The service and facilities are very good but there are some facilities that need to be rejuvenated like carpet in the room,,,Full and quite good breakfast, friendly service ... there is a shuttle every one hour to the airport ... there is a pickup facility from the airport to the hotel by first contacting the hotel a maximum of 3 hours before the flight arrives

      for sure the right place if you have to stay short in balikpapan and near to airport. small but clean rooms, friendly staff. minus for me..... lot of the guest are non indonesian. so it should be possible to enjoy a beer or glas of wine as in many other hotels in Balikpapan..... it is an alcohol free hotel
