Grand Jatra Hotel Balikpapan

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was massive, with a huge comfortable bed and large bathroom. No complaints about the room itself. The hotel could do with more service staff during breakfast though. It was hard to find a seat amidst all the uncleared plates/cups during breakfast time. It was handy for the hotel to be located right next to a shopping mall, which has quite a variety of things to browse.

i have sleep here two times because this hotel was so good and comfortable. its have a strategic place, near from a shoping mall. and near from airport. breakfast was delicious and have many varian. i love it.

It was a transit time, for one nite at Grand Jatra Hotel The room i took was Business Room + extrabed As ussuall of the hotel was good and nice services The price is a bit higher than other hotel at same class / stars The wifi is free

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.

Nice place to stay, Nice Room, Nice staff, Nice food, Nice Swimming pool at the roof top, Nice Jacuzzi, Nice Massage service too. it has a mall attached, a quite big one and complex entertain inside. only the the parking lot was limited in this hotel area.

The WORST Hotel.. Breakfast SUCK Generally the food is one of the worst... they dont even have an ice cube machine ROOM Very dirty... Pillows are so smelly TOILET they hardly taking care of the toilet My opinion: DONT EVEN COME TO THIS HOTEL

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

I have been travelling to Balikpapan for over 25 years and I have stayed at most of the hotels available in this city. This is an exceptional hotel, clean, great system in place, rooms spacious, food great. The breakfasts are spectacular . It is close to a bar and mall so everything is easily accessed. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The only issue I had (and it drives me crazy) is the salt an pepper shakers at breakfast. The staff do not make sure each table has a set and when they do either they are empty or the holes are clogged. So I am having to chase staff around the room asking for salt and pepper, or steal from other tables OR chasing staff to clear the holes in the shakers. Seems very easy to implement a system to fix this ongoing problem. Still apart from that, do yourself a favor and book a stay at this hotel if you are in Balikpapan.
