Had a lovely time staying here last month. Asanti (probably spelt wrong) the lady who runs the place is soo nice and will do a lot to accommodate you. The rooms are simple with just a bed and a fan but that's all we wanted anyway. There are two shared bathrooms. The atmosphere in the place is great- really relaxed... More

We rocked up at about 9pm, wrecked from a day of travelling and was greeted by the very friendly people at Salassa Guesthouse. This place is pretty popular so getting a room here might be a touch and go sometimes. The room is pretty basic but comfortable and the toilet is shared with a bucket to shower and nothing much...

Well there are not a lot of accomodation options in Bira so i should not expect too much. Basic rooms, thin walls,a shared basic toilet / shower but at lease a fan to move some air around. And now to the food..................well when it did arrive it was good but never plan to be in a hurry. We asked and... More

My partner and I recently had a wonderful stay at the Cosmos Bungalows in Bira. From there we hired Eriq Shanty and his comfortable car for a 2 day personalised, scenic coastal and mountain journey to Rantepao. Eriq is a very good driver,speaks good English,has a great sense of humour. He went out of his way to show us the... More

Eric and his wife are super amazing. Would recommend coming here midweek to avoid makassar crowds. Rooms are great, bathrooms very basic. Breakfast included is perfect changing everyday. Good location and great food in their restaurant

The accommodation is clean, but rather basic except for the beds (they are thick and awesome). The reason you should go here is for the owners and the staff, and their food! Santi, the owner, is the most welcoming and heartwarming host you can imagine. She and her staff cook some amazing Indonesian dishes, but don't expect fastfood. As their... More

We absolutely loved our stay in Salassa. The rooms are basic, but clean and the place has a very enjoyable and relaxed vibe. Santi is perhaps the best cook we encountered in Indonesia and bira itself one of the most laidback and beautiful places. When in Bira, dont miss Salassa!

Salassa is basic and the owner Eric is careful to explain it if you talk to him for booking. It’s a no frill room with fan, no towel, low pressure shower or mandi in the toilet at the end of the corridor. It’s also clean and quiet (at least my room was). The terrace is relaxing and has a much... More

We didn't stay here; just had one dinner in our last night in Bira. Wish we had come sooner though. By far the tastiest food we had in Bira. Service was a bit variable with one waitress really on the ball and another really slow - I mean REALLY slow.
