            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.

            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.

            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...

            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.

            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.

            Worst Hotel, Not Recommended”
            Nothing I Like
            Its a night with temper for me in this hotel: 1. The room view was blocked with a wing extension 2. The bathroom looked dirty like its cleaned only once in a while 3. The shower, I wouldn't say shower, its more to water drops for us 4. There was no hot water in the shower as well, so when you have to be prepared very early in the morning like me, this will be the biggest issue 5. I have asked the hotel staff to check, they keep checking but nothing happens, I ask for room transfer, they said they don't have unoccupied room for our group (3 rooms and we are all experiencing the same problem) 6. The TV didn't display any image or whatsoever, they said it was from the TV cable sentral, but its been like that for the whole day, isn it weird?

            Price, in city center
            the hotel is located 10 - 15 min from airport. it is just 200 meter from the sea main road of Balikpapan. it is near the sea, unfortunately, the beach nearby is dirty. the hotel is simple, 1 star hotel so dont expect much. (there are no swiming pool) the advantage is that budget price and in city center.

            i am soooo disappointed by the service and facilities of this hotel. the reason why i chose this hotel was just because its closeness to my parents' house where i spent my christmas holidays. when i arrived, the reception was still looking for the room and found one. a security guard came to carry my suitcases to the 2nd floor (there is no lift in this hotel). he opened the door of our room and i was really disturbed by the smell coming from this room. the bedsheet looks so old and dirty. the bath mate was black (the original color i believed was white!!!), the bathroom is awfully smell and so dirty, the sink is rusty with lots of hair in it.....yike....disgusting!!! i booked for 3 people but they only prepared 1 (dirty) towel. practically, we never took shower in this hotel...we only slept at night and left the hotel in the morning......we didn't even use the toilet!!! never again staying in this hotel!!!!
