Hotel NEO Balikpapan

Balikpapan, 25 November 2016 – As a swift response to today's travel boom, Archipelago International is once again creating more signature experiences with the latest opening of its fourth property in Balikpapan, East Borneo. Becoming the first Hotel NEO in town, the new Hotel NEO Balikpapan joins Archipelago International's Aston Balikpapan, favehotel MT Haryono Balikpapan, and Quest Hotel Balikpapan.

Easily accessible by air, land and sea, Balikpapan is famous for its timber, mining and oil industries. Although dubbed Oil City, it has seen a recent spike in tourism, with enchanting and adventurous attractions such as crocodile feeding at Teritip Crocodile Breeding, swimming at Melawai Beach, and exploring the gorgeous green of Wanawisata Garden Balikpapan.

Hotel NEO Balikpapan is located just a short walk from the Gadjah Mada Mall and within close proximity to the bustling business district. Designed as the perfect economy hotel for business travelers, Hotel NEO Balikpapan is less than 20 minutes to Sultan Aji Muhammad Sulaiman International Airport and less than 15 minutes to Semayang Harbor which directly connects Balikpapan city to major cities within Indonesia and abroad.

Spread across seven floors, Hotel NEO Balikpapan boasts 101 trendy and chic rooms and suites with smoking or non-smoking options. Each space is then equipped with upmarket facilities such as high-quality beds and pillows, LED TVs, individually controlled AC, mini bars, tea and coffee makers, writing desks with universal electrical outlets, and private bathrooms with showers and full bathing amenities. For both business and pleasure, high-speed complimentary Wi-Fi keeps guests connected, together with three modern meeting rooms for corporate matters, and The Noodles Now restaurant and bar complete with karaoke facilities for entertainment.

“We have seen tremendous success over the last few years in Balikpapan and as the main gateway into Borneo, we continue to see phenomenal potential for further growth in the future. Indeed, the city is particularly famous for its abundant oil production, and as such, this new NEO hotel targets Balikpapan's growing MICE industry. Yet there are also more and more tourism destinations emerging throughout the city, making our NEO brand the ideal fit as a mid-scale lifestyle hotel at a reasonable price point that doesn't sacrifice cleanliness, comfort or style.” said Winston Hanes as the Director of Operations Archipelago International.
