Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The hotel for airline people and casual travelers. The advantages for staying here: half. The price for rates. The next door Novotel permits use of pool and fitness center gratis...but don't eat there. Ibis has pleasant staff,hot water, generally reliable internet access and is close to the center of the city. Good value for money.

AC was too cold and could not be adjusted so you need to turn it off. Plus, the white bed sheets, towels and blankets were dirty. They have to change those immediately. they look bad. The breakfast menu was okay. The room was a bit small but the service was okay. lunch menu okay.

Check-in / out processes were effective, nice breakfast (many options to choose), and the room was quite. Value for money, of course. Moreover, it's very close to the city attractions. Whenever you want to try something different, you can just walk to Taman Bekapai for Balikpapan's street food at night, or to the nearby mall.

The hotel is small as Ibis standard and looks old. Eventhough it is small, it is clean enough. I stayed here for 1 nights and it is pretty basic and standard. The wireless is free of charge and it is OK. The location however is quite far from any restaurant, so I suggest before going back to hotel, get some...

This is not my first time stay at Ibis Balikpapan. Clean and compact are the first impression after opening the room door. Modular built-in bathroom makes the room more compact and clean but everything you need is there. Master electricals switch is provided which is basic standards that some five stars hotel failed to deliver, it makes more convenience to...

I stayed for 3 days in Ibis Balikpapan for my business trip. This hotel is near mall and easy to find public transportation. It only takes 15 min (max) to the airport. The receptionists were nice and gave a good service. But the breakfast is very simple and need more variations. Overall this is a good hotel with good services....

I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights to attend a convention in another hotel nearby. It is strategically located next to Novotel (which Ibis gave gym & pool access into) around Bekapai Park, only 10 min walk to Balikpapan Plaza or the city center. The highlight: My room in Ibis Balikpapan, by far, was the cleanest and coziest Ibis...
