9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very nice and clean. Good location--walking distance to ewalk mall.
Cons: Staff didn't speak much English, and therefore gave us some less-than-ideal advice on going to the Sun Bear Center... We were asking about transportation there, and they told use to use Grab Car, but in hindsight I'm not sure they understood where we wanted to go. We used Grab to get there (which was a bit expensive, but it's all relative...), but afterwards there were no Grab cars available to take us back (it's about an hour from Balikpapan, so maybe out of their range). The staff at the center didn't speak English either, so we were feeling a bit stranded ... In the end, we paid two staff members to take us back to the main road on motorbikes, and then took public transportation back to the mall, and walked from there. A bit of an adventure, since nobody spoke English, but they insisted on asking us questions in Indonesian that we didn't understand! We just kept repeating "Balikpapan, ewalk" and eventually made it home!

The pool is enough .. not big but enjoyable The only problem is all the good things in this hotel, make it always full with visitor .. and the staff are not fast enough to serve them all, so there will be a lot of waiting time for every service .. But still we will come again and again for every visit to Balikpapan

Could not pick up blinds from bedroom window, fhe line was broken. Not to mention ac remote did not worked. After complain we were offered another room but looked similar. We shortened our stay from four to one night. In general place need big renovation.

Pros: The hotel is worst Hotel. Taps does not works and even is you inform to reception, they hardly care. Moreover the staff are not so good. Will never stay. I visit regularly but never ever will go there again.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The whole hotel was presented fantastically and the rooms were well maintained and absolutely beautiful. The views from our room were amazing. We ate both breakfast and dinner in the restaurant, both days we were there, and the meals were great. The location was great, close to the airport and the major shopping areas. We went to Balikpapan, because my grandfather was wounded there in WWII, so we has a list of military sites we specifically see. We tried to arrange a driver to take us to these places, but had trouble finding a company who spoke English. We asked the staff at reception and they arranged for one of their own shuttle drivers to take us around.
Cons: Our electronic room cards kept malfunctioning, so we spent a lot of time going up and down to reception to get into our room. Apparently the card system has difficulty understanding people staying more than one night. The staff's English was limited and we often had to wait until a certian person was working before we could get someone to understand what we were asking.

Pros: Staff were generally pleasant. Rooms very big.

7.9 Good
Pros: 1. The hotel is just off Jend. Sudirman, about 15-20 minutes from the airport. 2. The Sky Bar on the 8th floor gives a very good view of the ocean, and is a nice place to spend some time with good music. 3. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds.
Cons: 1. The furnishings in the room, including carpets, need to be upgraded. The rooms make a dent in the grandeur of the hotel. 2. A few more chairs in the lobby area will help guests better.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Nice and spacious room.
Cons: The staff was really unhelpful. It is the first we experienced something like that. And we travel a lot. They even weren't able to order taxi on time, which was supposed to take us to the airport. A lot of facilities within hotel were closed. The hotel pretends to be luxury, but with this kind of attitude of the staff and pretty weak english knowledge of most the staff, it is simply ridiculous. The prices in hotel restaurants are sky high especially taking into account the service quality. If you want to eat something, you would better go outside, e.g. Ocean's (very good seafood).
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful old style hotel with large, bright rooms and wooden floors. Well equipped gym and super helpful and skilled staff. Full 'Gran Hotel Budapest' experience as in Wes Anderson's movie.
Cons: Bathroom needs a good brush and scrub here and there. Face towels in addition to bath towel would be nice. Pillows were too hard for me. Food at the Skybar is so so, and the bar itself is rather dull but staff was super nice and entertaining. The big minus is unpleasant smell around the swimming pool and in the bathroom indicating problems with sewage.
