Sunsets, security, friendly and attentive staff.. The Hotel by local Balikpapan standards (a community gathering pace yet not a tourism destination) is as good as the other 4 stars in the area.
Not being Muslim, the 04:30 morning prayers (loud broadcasts from immediate neighbourhood Mosque(s) ) are a detriment to sleeping capabilities. The liiter and odor of raw sewage in the area surrounding the hotel is an area the local Council should be addressing with a view to improving local environment. One would not swim in the sea in front of the hotel for fear of dissolving.
