"I stayed at Swiss Belhotel for 3 days and booked it again for 9 more days as it was the best deal available in Balikpapan. Excellent location (close to Balikpapan Plaza, Ocean's Restaurant, and 10 minutes drive (30,000 IDR, 3$ USD) from BSB/E-Walk (Biggest shopping centre in Balikpapan). After staying 9 more days, here are a few additional observations: 1. They were changing their TV/Cable/Sat System, so most of the tv channels were unavailable during my stay, which was annoying as I was trying to follow on important news. Ask the frontdesk first if you need it in November 2014 to avoid frustration. 2. Internet speed is capped at 50k/sec, which seems the standard for hotels in Balikpapan. Forget streaming anything :) 3. Included breakfast was good (big Indo/Western food buffet), but nothing spectacular either. See my other review below for more info. "

Staff also very helpful to call airline who had misplaced our baggage. Room and facilities were great and the breakfast selection amazing. I would definitely stay at this hotel again."

"I was hoping there would be pork products at this hotel. All the other high end hotels in Balikpapan provide pork products. It is sad to pay extra money for a hotel and have beef bacon with your breakfast. I know there are cultural considerations, but Balikpapan has a massive expat community and if they want to attract expats, they need to cater to expat needs. Yes, this is a small issue, but when you already struggle to find expat things in Indonesia, it would be nice to have those little things when you go to a nice hotel."

"Just another low standard apartment, poor facilities, check-in take a long time because of no one in reception, weird and bad smell in the room, the bathroom also need to fix and renovation, and if you are driving a car you should buy parking fee it can cost you about 20% from the Appartement price, overall, is not a good idea to stay at this place since it's different from the pictures online, and with same price you can stay in different place with high standards.
