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.

We spent 2 nights of transit before and after our trip to Maratua. Room is spacious. They provide free internet. Speed was not very fast though.

Location of this hotel is very good. Just round the corner, there is money exchange. Cross the street from the money exchange, there is a big shopping mall. 10 more minutes of walk, we found a good seafood restaurant.

Breakfast was provided for free. It was served at the Cafe on the ground floor. Food was adequate but the quality was just so so.

To conclude, just spend a night for transit I find this hotel acceptable.

Menara bahtera is so far my fave hotel in Balikpapan. Room is big, the pool also big and nice. The room service is also great. Food are delicious and lots of choice in menu. The music entertainment in lounge every night is also good. Amazingly this hotel gives you lots more tv channel than the other hotel i ever stayed. Its just no connect door from parking area to the hotel for few floor so u'll need to walk in parking area to reach the door.

I thought while going in it will be a fine hotel. The check in was smooth. Entered room to find an above average room and below average bathroom. Then came the hard part. There was no WiFi.

I called reception and a guy fixed router in my room. But my other colleagues did not get WiFi like me. The speed of internet was slow.

When I was checkin out, they gave me remaining amount in cash for my credit card transaction.

Personally I would not visit this hotel again and neither will my colleagues, due to lack of internet, good rooms and service.

It was a solo trip for work purpose and I had a nice 1-night stay. The room was spacious and breakfast buffet was inclusive. Although not situated on one of the main roads, it is within walking distance to one big mall in Balikpapan city. There's also a local coffee shop just accros the hotel that many locals would recommend.
A few things need improvement were: couches & chairs in fabric material weren't cleaned properly, dining area for smoking people was more spacious than the non-smoking one, and they seem to allow guests to smoke in their huge lobby area.

I chose this hotel because a friend recommended a massage place just down the street, Wan-Wan Refleksi. I was pleased with all aspects of my stay at Menara Bahtera. They upgraded my room on arrival which was a pleasant surprise. It is in a good location, breakfast buffet was included, nice pool, welcoming staff. Very good value!

I was here. The location is near from the city center. You can find balikpapan plaza in front of this hotel. Finding a street food or a convenience store is not a big deal. Just go outside the lobby, walk for 1-2 minutes and you can find what you need.

Pros: Very good location, large room.
Cons: It's old, and when i was here, i couldn't find a good connection wifi.

I chose this hotel because of its strategic location and cheap price. The rest of my impression on this hotel is its just ordinary hotel, nothing special. I regret the lack of attention to detail things such as stuffy air in the hotel area, the broken battery cover of TV remote, no hotel service guide book, etc.
