Le Grandeur use to be a classy business hotel in Balikpapan where you can get a confortable night stay. Rooms are not too clean, but toiletries have taken a few steps down. The soap is even of low quality as a cost saving exercise. smell pack with cheap perfume. The room service food is sloppy and doesnt deserve a second...

I stayed here for 2 nights and actually I am quite OK with it. It is true that the hotel is old and I can see the interior somehow shows it, but from convenience point of view I am still OK. Obviously hotel needs a lot of room of improvement especially with the fact it has quite a lot of...

Affordable prices. This hotel was good for a quick overnight stay. Good location away from busy town centre but within walking distance to good places to eat. Staff spoke basic english and were polite.

For the first time I choose to stay at this hotel for review. I was check in at 6.00 P.M Inside the room dark enough and smelly. All the furniture at my room was dusty. The bathroom looks like hell with the bathtub not polish. Terrible night for me even I just stay for 1 night. Never think to come...

As a Balikpapan resident, Le Grandeur has always been one of the city icon. It's a quaint hotel that has decent facilities and its own private beach (the one and only here). I've stayed here at the club suit as part of our wedding package. The room was spacious and clean, bathroom was too, Bed is comfy, and gorgeous beach...

Like many hotels in SE Asia the Le Grandeur was once a majestic piece of architecture with impressively furnished rooms, gardens and general facilities. Time has passed and the age of the complex is certainly showing. In a word the facilities appear tired and overall condition is in decline. The buildings are not falling apart but pretty much every where...

A very good option if staying in Balikpapan, the rooms aren't new but do the job. Breakfast is Ok. It's got a small gym and The pool is clean. I suggest to go to Ocean's for seafood/fish although in-room service is not bad. You may consider the Jatra Hotel if you want to walk to shops and restaurants as it's...

With so many beautiful locations to visit in Indonesia, one has to be honest and say that Balikpapan would probably not feature on most people's list of holiday destinations. However should you, like ourselves be passing through Balikpapan or on a stop over, you are probably looking at one of these four hotels for your stay: Aston, Le Grandeur, Gran...

I was there for 3 days business meeting. My room was in the corner, had no nice view from window (all I saw just trees), had no idea why the capsule door closer was broken (as if it had been robbed), spider webs in bathroom ceiling, very poor lighting. The breakfast was so-so, had a trouble with lift door (could...
