I stayed in Jatra Hotel for two days business visit in Balikpapan. The hotel was in a good location, about 15 minutes drive from Sepinggan Airport. From here to downtown area takes about 15-30 minutes depending on traffic. The good thing about its location is the integrated shopping mall BSB (Balikpapan Super Block). This mall provides a moderately complete relaxation facilities. There is a cozy food court, Pizza Hut, JCo, and ehmm... Starbucks. On the top floor they have 21 Cineplex also. The hotel itself is modern, art deco, efficient and clean. I had no trouble sleeping, and the recepsionist and bell boys were attentive. It has a comfortable lounge and meeting rooms where you can continue your business meeting after office hours. Great location. Comfortable.
Date of stay: October 2016
Room Tip: I stayed at 7th floor and I had quiet, comfortable sleeps.
Trip type: Travelled on business

Grand Jatra is close to a mall full of shops and restaurants and not far from The airport. The rooms are large enough, at Bellagio tasty lunch and dinner, breakfast various possibilities. You can find a good gym open to external people, in the new Spa professional therapist.the unique problem is the music played aside the hotel from 7 pm for all the night, a little boring.
The staff is cooperative.

If you're looking for a convenient location downtown, I guess this hotel is a good choice. It is easy to reach with 2 big malls close by. Lots of food selection as well as supermarket as well as other stores and cinema

Best breakfast, quite room, right next to the mall, we love the decoration, fast response from the staff, unfortunatelly the bed is only queen size bed. We'd expect a larger bed because my husband is big enough.

Spacious and generally clean. Deluxe room 42sqm! But how can you consider yourself as a 5-star hotel when first of all, the furnitures used are of genuinely cheap quality. The sofa was so flimsy that we actually had sofa-sickness just by sitting on it!!! Then the towels are not even white, slightly stained and so overused that they dont absorb anymore.
We requested for non-smoking room and it smelled like smoke all day in the bathroom.
As for Room service, we had a very disappointing experience. Ordered calamaris, burger, caesar salad and tom yum soup. They called 1/2 hour later to say that they no longer have calamaris, which is fine, chose something else instead. 1/2 hour later (which means total of 1hr waiting time now), they called to say they no longer have buns for the burger so had to order something else. We basically end up eating almost 2 hours later with a bill way overpriced (the caesar salad had just like 4 pieces of extremely tired lettuces and croutons for more that 65k??!). To compensate for the delay, they offered us a fruit platter. Sure, thanks. Hawaiian pizza and Tom yum soup worth ordering.
Plenty of options at the Buffet breakfast but the cooking's tasteless. Asked for 2 plates of scrambled eggs, dry and wet. they both ended up looking the same. When i told the staff about it, they insisted unpleasantly that it was different.
You're basically paying for the great location and the size of the room (deluxe room) but the service and food really not up to standard. Such a shame, even the 3-stars hotels that i've stayed in Balikpapan had way better overall standard.
