A nice hotel, but not 5 stars by international standards. Breakfast of poor quality is what impacts the experience negatively. If hotel management makes an effort to offer a better breakfast this may become the best hotel in Balikpapan. A good choice of cheeses and vegetables is what`s missing as well as freshly made juices.

The upside is that the rooms are spacious and there is a shopping center right below the hotel with plenty of restaurants and coffee shops.

Gran Jatra hotel, is 20 minutes from the airport. The building is new, and close the a mall with shops and restaurant. The service is kind and careful. The room are clean and wide. The gym is little but good enough as the swimming pool. The Bellagio supply you a very good breakfast and tasty lunch and dinner, international standard. We always stay at Gran jatra when we come to Balik Papan for work.

I stay in this hotel each time I visit Balikpapan. The location is less than 10 minutes from airport. There is a mall at the ground floor. And in the same area there are shopping area, entertainment, restaurant and cafe.
My room was clean, big enough and comfort. My only problem was there was no electricity port near the bed. There was sofa set in the room.
The swimming pool was very nice, and it has a great city view. There was also a jacuzzi.

The hotel is in a strategic location : 20 minutes to the airport, 20 minutes to downtown, near the gift shop, near the balikpapan iconic resto (dandito, kenari, torani, bang joni etc), and next to the mall. Breakfast with various menu and great atmosphere, especially with the tradisional music performance
