EXCELLENT HOTEL

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 Aug 2022
Staying here during the weekend I booked 2 rooms (602 and 603) a larger rooms than in the lowers floors. This room have the a great view to the sea and also the biggest mall in Balikpapan. 1 room have balcony while the other while taking bath we can see the view from the bathroom (my children love this room).

The breakfast so many variety (koko krunch, milk, salad, appetizer to dessert and the also have infused water and of course they have live cooking for the ommelete).

The cafe open 24 hours and have Tanamera coffee brand which very famous in Jakarta. I also asked for airport shuttle and the driver already standby in the airport and help our luggages.

Very recommended hotel if you have a plan to visit Balikpapan.
Date of stay: August 2022
Room Tip: I recommended to stay in top floor rooms.

During my Balikpapan business trip, i prefer to chose hotel property in a prime location.
Midtown express balikpapan is located in a central town. walking distance with mall, atm, food hall and business purpose.
when i noticing this hotel actually 2 star but they had a very decent room facility and breakfast just like a 3 star +

complete amenities and they changed it daily, they even give me an additional mineral water.

room was compact and modern. suits on me! cleanliness was perfect.
i'm happy with the variety of breakfast. complete nutrition; protein, carbo, fish, and few of jajan pasar.

The staff service trully excellent.
glad to say that the hotel management give them a proper well trainning
- although the hotel was fullbooked, hotel staff still give the guest name recognition.
- fast respond in every aspect. i request to laundry by morning and its ready by the afternoon. i just asking to the housekeeping "is it my laundry already finished?" they say hold on, let us check. and the next 2 minutes my laundry is being delivered to my room. wow! same thing when i request a tiny little help and they just doing excellent.

So happy to say that i do have a wonderful time in Midtown Express Balikpapan. keep up your good work

This hotel offered more than we paid. Located at the main street, at the right side balikpapan super block, not to far from airport. Very modern millenial ambience. The staff are very helpfull and warm hospitality. The check in was fast and everything that i requested they fullfill. The room very neat, clean, and comfy. View from the room is nice with big wide screen led tv. Hot shower running well. The lighting also very bright. Amenities enough for daily use. The food choices are complete for two stars hotel standard. They give you more than what youre pay.
