Whiz Prime Hotel Balikpapan
Balikpapan City Center,Balikpapan - View on map
"Only stay for a night. The hotel is new, everything is clean, the bed is very comfort but the room has no soundproof so you can hear everything from outside. Easy to access, in the heart of Balikpapan city. Many food stals available nearby. Staff were helpful and friendly, breakfast was not many option. I will consider to stay here for my next trip."

Swiss-Belhotel Balikpapan
Balikpapan City Center,Balikpapan - View on map
"This hotel has perhaps the best location for someone who wants to be close to the best restaurants and shops in Balikpapan City Center. 5 minutes walk from Balikpapan Plaza, 7-8 minutes walk from Ocean's (Best restaurant in Balikpapan, and very cheap as well), and a 10 minutes taxi ride (30,000 IDR) from BSB/E-Walk (Biggest shopping centre in Balikpapan). Right next to this hotel is Balcony city but it's almost empty, other than a KFC and a few smaller food joints, so unless you just need a quick snack, you'd better head to Balikpapan Plaza, an easy 5 min walk westbound on Jenderal Surdiman Road. The rooms were big, clean, and the staff was extremely nice. Included breakfasts are good, and the beds are very comfortable too. I got a room in this hotel for a very good price (40$ a night for Deluxe Room), and I can confirm that it is an excellent choice for this price. "

Hotel Neo+ Balikpapan by ASTON
Balikpapan City Center,Balikpapan - View on map
"Room clean. Great to have kettle, coffee etc and toiletries. Cable TV in English and many channels to choose from. Breakfast excellent for Asian or Westerner. Staff very, very good from reception to kitchen to cleaning staff. Location is about 2 kms from Balikpapan plaza but can get local bus on the road very cheaply. A supermarket is within easy walking distance. A couple of excellent places to eat over the road particularly the seafood place. Lots of local places too. We hired motorcycle from friend of receptionist so we’re able to get around the town easily. Traffic not too busy for big town. Souvenirs hard to come by but we got a few things at airport on departure. We enjoyed a 6 night stay at the hotel and have no negatives at all ( except Agoda ad said there was a pool and there wasn’t) Anne and John Australia "
