Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed for one night, overall I give a good mark for this hotel. However it's quite old and kinda creepy somehow since the light is minimum.
I stayed here because all of my team stayed here. But most of expat loves to stay here.

This is a pretty basic hotel, especially if you've just come from The Mulia in Jakarta, which I had. The staff were friendly and efficient, the bar was OK and you could sit outside on a balcony if you wished. There is an external swimming pool; well more of a playing pool. The sea is immediately adjacent. The rooms were fairly basic but had the necessary essentials, soaps, shampoos, towels etc and the water was hot. It is definitely dated and more targeted on the working personnel who frequent if for the local refinery etc. It has a 24 hr massage service, with extras if you so wished. I wouldn't want to stay in it as a holiday hotel but it was OK if you're passing through on work, or just for a night or two. Air conditioning was only marginally acceptable, as were the pillows.

This hotel is quite old but well maintained. The room is clean and comfortable, the staffs were helpful and nice. Breakfast is fairly good. One of the best part is direct access to private beach with nice sea food restaurant. This hotel is located in the city center, walking distance to major banks and shopping center. Around the hotel are also coffee shop and restaurants offering vast array of traditional food. In short, good value of money and very good location.

the hotel is well well well past it’s prime. severely neglected and ceilings rotting away and cover with white tarps to hide the mold. pretty disgusting to say the least.

the stupidity of horrid maintenance is mind boggling but sadly this is indonesia and normally how things are done. any health
department innany civilized country would cloes them down in an instant.

mold is a known health hazzard and unless they fix it then i recommend finding another place to stay but as a forewarning you really need to see the interior of a place and check all reviews BEFORE BOOKING !!

This hotel might be the right one for those who
-> do not mind hearing music in their rooms till late night
-> do not mind a pool area where it is noisy due to many kids shouting and screaming
-> do not mind a wash room which actually is not clean (digest the pic enclosed)

The staff is friendly and helpful and the bed is actually good but I do NOT like the sound of a band playing three floors below my room till late night, I like kids but there is a minimum of behavior I expect when it is a common area, and I am disgusted when a bathroom is dirty.

I have fond memories of the Dusit hotel now known as le grander. Thats why I always pay it a visit when in balik. Its tragic to see this grand place run so badly and what has become of the once thriving Borneo Bar. Now a sports bar....come on.... how tacky...and whats with the fat man serving the drinks ? They didnt even have cold water at the bar. Nobody under 60 goes there any more the place is so sad now.

I don't know what happened to this place. I stayed many times 4-8 years ago, and it was the best choice for a hotel in Balikpapan. That has changed completely these days. Very sad to see this place being run to the ground so fast. Better try another place next time.

Dear our valuable guest We greatly appreciate you taking the time to post a review on TripAdvisor following your recent stay at Le Grandeur Balikpapan. Your comments regarding our hotel are also valid and we are currently working with our owners toward a full renovation of our guest rooms and public areas. Unfortunately such a project takes time in planning and owner approval so our team continues to focus on overall cleanliness and guest service. For your information, all rooms on 4th floor under renovation with modern minimalist style and hopefully will finish on middle of 2014. I sincerely hope that you will return to Balikpapan and Le Grandeur in the near future. Regards, Management Hotel Le Grandeur Balikpapan

A very tired and dirty hotel, where patches of damp adorn ceilings and mildew surrounds the bath, with the added attraction of a filthy shower curtain. The only good thing is the excellent wifi. Both husband and myself have been ill from food and goodness knows what is coming from the creaking air con system. Gym is forlorn, only open half of the time and with broken air con. Swimming pool area is equally sad and the seafood restaurant permanently closed. Sadly stuck here for work for another four days, but will not be eating again in the hotel. An air of no-one cares enough to spend any money on it, though the staff are friendly and do their best. Haven't met any management -yet!

Its an old hotel with outdated furniture and interior. Carpet flooring and sheets in the room need to be clean or refubish.

Internet connection and TV channel are good.

Breakfast not that good. the variety of food are really limited and since there are only big table in the restaurant so you have to share a table with stranger.

For a 4 stars hotel, this hotel need a major upgrade.

Although the staff was very friendly and helpful, the hotel room itself was terrible. The carpets were stained and ripped. The bathtub was covered in black mild and peeling. The wood of the cabinets were chipped. The fabric chairs were stained and the walls were peeling.
I must say that the staff and manager was amazing in trying to accommodate, but unfortunately nothing could be done.
The rooms are very run down, unless you book an "executive suite". However, they were all the non-smoking rooms were full and they had only smoking rooms available (which have a very strong smell).
