Reviewed 9 April 2014

if you visit Balikpapan for business , zurich hotel will be a good choice . just 10 min drive from airport , walking distance to a big mall.

very big & comfortable lobby , friendly receptionists . rate is cheap , room is so wide & so the bathroom , bathtub inside. everything works well is the room (ie. TV , Aircond , etc)
fresh linen . (i choose a non smoking room)

break fast ok

Room Tip: choose the room with the window facing the town

Firstly I think this place is a 3-star hotel, not a B&B/Inn. Its located near from airport & is closer to a big mall. This place can certainly do much better if they work on it for example Rooms are pretty dark cause of bad light placements, Can change the old box television set with new ones, It takes forever for your food to arrive after ordering food so the service can be made faster & the wifi out here is very very slow so they can improve on it by getting more bandwith . Apart from all this the rooms are nice big & comfy. The bed is very good, bathrooms are nice & clean. Food is also alright at this place & so breakfast. The staff is pretty welcoming with smiles. I think for the price it’s a good hotel. Wouldn’t mind staying here again but hopefully by then the hotel would had done improvement on their drawbacks.

Located near from airport and ewalk Balikpapan makes me wonder how good this hotel was. Then I tried to stay one night with double bed inside. First sight of this hotel service was good,I got the night creature from my 5th floor but unfortunately hotel's window layout was too easy to see from others room so u must turn of the light or close the curtain when u get change. Furniture are too dusty for this level I don't get it why, completely not LED TV! That really surprising me. My room was 398k on weekend w/ non smoke area.

This hotel is very easy to reach coming from the airport. It is also located close to Balikpapan's largest retail centre. This was the reason I booked this hotel and was quickly proven to be the right decision. Places are so easy to reach, from the east areas of Batakan, the city center to the west, and the residential areas to the north. The downside is only the lack of facilities, so in a way some would still feel it's inappropriate for the hotel to be claiming 4 star. So if anyone is traveling for business, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Smokers can ask for a room on the smoking floor

Note to tripadvisor.com: I think this place is a 3-star hotel, not a B&B/Inn. It's located on one of the city's main street and has an ocean-view for some rooms. It's got a good location, near to a big mall. Checking in and out without any hassle. I agree that the staff here could be more friendly with more smile and initiative. Sleep quality was fair. Room amenities and the breakfast was standard 3-star hotel. Overall, I wouldn't so much recommend this hotel to anyone. Except the location, an improvement needs to be done. But if you're running out of options, crashing in here is okay.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the ocean.

If all you are looking for is a room then this is the place to stay. Room is clean and quality is ok.
But if you are looking for service then don't expect much. It takes forever for your food to arrive after ordering food, we have even asked for what would be the fastest and it still came 30 minutes after. Staff are not friendly, only several will show smile and initiative
