It's a very nice hotel, good service, great facilities, but in a reachable price. Located near the big mall. A lot of cafe and fast food restaurant around the hotel. Free WiFi connection also helps so much during my stay. Helpful staff and free valets make a stay much more better.

Hotels with rates very affordable, fairly comfortable and located in the downtown which is very strategic position at all. Not far to walk to the Mall, food court and hypermarket as well. Right choice for those who will travel to Balikpapan, and suitable for family trip or business trip as well.
