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.

The Hotel is quite new and modern. A typical budget hotel with small room and separate bathroom and toilet (one for take a bath and one is the toilet). Which quite unique but inconvenient if you wanna go for pee and take a bath and the same time. Provide WiFi and great bed (it is unique and well design bed that provides excellent sleeping experience -- forgot the name tho). However it has limited parking space. I also having trouble to retrieve my room reservation from Agoda. It needs more than 30 minutes for the staff to figure it out that Agoda actually using booking.com as 3rd party reservation (how complicated is that, one booking site using another booking site to book hotel room.....). Location is quite great with walking distance good restaurant. DO NOT have free shuttle to airport (in Agoda they mention free shuttle tho). Basically the receptionist just order you a cab and it has fix rate (around Rp70,000 -- not sure this is an expensive rate or not since I haven't had any experience with taxi using meter before).

Nice hotel in a major road of Balikpapan, close to main attraction. The room is clean but small, and typical Indonesian breakfast (no continental breakfast). Room rate is very inexpensive, but beware the lowest room rates are without breakfast.

I have tried a few budget hotel such as Ibis, Fave hotel, Amaris.

This is by far the worst. As it is not efficiently designed.

Small size room is expected. But, the bathroom are the worst. I don't understand why they have to separate the shower area and the toilet. And the door of the shower area has to be pulled out thus making the floor wet! So inconvenient, slippery, dirty and dangerous for my kids.

There is no place to hang your clothes and the bathroom and the towel rack is falling from the wall.

The towel itself are thin and worn out.

The television is very small but not a problem. The bed is the best in the room. Its comfortable.

So, if you are travelling solo, this would be a good choice.
But, if you are travelling with family, I would suggest to find other hotels

Yes, the price is over 300k per night, but you get an ultra clean room, comfy and huge bed, good shower, window, and very professional staff..

We could even stay longer in our room (checkout 3pm instead 12) because my wife didn't feel well..

Would always come back to this place.

Stayed 1 night at the hotel for a business trip. As it is a new hotel, it's clean. The room was small, but efficiently designed. For people who needed internet for work very much, theirs was a life saver.
My only complaint was that the hotel is a bit far from any convenient store. I needed to buy water in the middle of the night, and had to walk quite far.
Oh, & my suggestion, it would be better if the bathroom have toiletries holder because I had to put my toiletries on the floor.

I have been stay in this hotel for almost 10 days. At the beginning everything is good, the staffs very friendly, very clean and fast internet.
After 6 days stayed, the internet completely off and i just find out that the hotel will not changing the bed sheet for those who extanded. They will change every 2 days or if looks dirty along with the bed cover. If that so, the hotel need to cut the price for those extanded. Its kind uncomfortable for me who stayed for almost 10 days. Its been 3 days i lived without the wifi, very dissapointed, not solving the problem in short period of time.
I wish this not happen again.

I slept for 2 nights in this low price hotel.

Pros: value for money, they provide a single room for solo travelers, efficient check in process, located in the main street, near local restaurants and food stalls helpful and friendly staffs, free wifi internet with very fast speed, strong shower with good temperature, comfortable bed, good air condition, safe box in the guest room, electric kettle with free mineral water + coffee + tea, medium led tv with various international channels, limited breakfast menus but the taste were ok.

Cons: like other Whiz hotels the restaurant staff will ask us to choose 1 from 3 main course menu that available at breakfast time (buffet breakfast, but not 'all you can eat'}, then they will prepare one serving for you. Inefficient check out time - we must wait the housekeeping checking the room. Only for sleep and breakfast - no other 3 star hotel facilities like room service, swimming pool, fitness center etc.

At the check in time, we must leave RP. 50.000,- for key deposit. They will return the money at checkout time.
In general, there was no serious problem when I stay at this hotel and could become a new option when we need to stay in Balikpapan.
