a low budget hotel, so many mossy, limited breaky

comfy bed, hot water, complimentary mineral water
Not comfortable, we got bit by a few mossy at night, the fridge didn't work, the AC was a bit cold and the breakfast was very limited, there were a few people coming at 9 am and hardly any food left in the dining room. But we have comfy bed and great hot shower. However, I wouldn't stay here anymore, not recommended! Well what can you expect from a low budget hotel.

A hotel ideal for group travellers...

affordable with free breakfast
Just stayed overnight with two friends.. Though the family room is not that big with only 1 airconditioning unit but the other bed is seperated by the bathroom walls so not enough cool air circulating with in the room.. The bath room is not that clean as well...
Nightlife Tip: For a nice bar with live music in Balikpapan, you can visit the J' Cuvee at Hotel Jethran, BSB. For a standard drinks along the beach, try the Kamala Beach with live music as well... And a nice dining place along beach, visit the Ocean..

In need of some TLC

Reasonable sized room, bed was ok...
We arrived at 4pm and the porter had finished for the day so we had to carry all our bags to our rooms ourselves. The room on first glance appeared to be nice however it turned out that the bed had been made with the blanket on the inside and sheet on the outside so all the bedding needed to be turned inside out. The bathroom was not cleaned so I had to wear sandals in the shower, the faucet was surrounded with mould. In the morning, the complimentary breakfast was sparse and unpleasant and the dining room was full of mosquitos. Not impressed.

Nice Service Average Hotel

The staff are polite and very helpful
We stayed at Bintang hotel for 4 nights. During the first night the water in the bathroom was clogged and we had to bath wit water ankle deep. The air conditioning was not functioning well (we had t owait for about an hour before cool breeze came from the aircond.. We change to another room which was smaller but much nicer.. Anyhow the lighting in the room is not functioning and we had to sleep with the light on because it could not be swwitched off. breakfas was always fried rice and I dont think they knew how to cook other dishes.Overall the hotel is ok as it is in the center of Balik papan. Maybe all the problems was due to the renovation done.. Thanks for the staff it was quite a nice stay.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: The hotel is near the monument and Kemala Beach which is a Bali styled bveach with live music. A two hours drive will take you to Samarinda which is abigger vcity and to shop, Samarinsda is much cheaper.. Kutai is all about traditiopnal city with the keraton and we had a nice pony ride there

Average hotel with nice staff

Friendly staff, Location Good
The hotel is still under renovation and there are lots of things that need to be complained about. However, I think after renovation ot will be a nice place to stay. Location is good and the staff went out of their way to help.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Nearby is the Kemala Beach with a Bali style bistro and life music
