We stayed here during December. Because it was almost christmas all the homestays were booked or filled with family of the owners. Hotel Pison was almost empty and we booked a room here. We negotiated a cheaper price because of the low season. It was cheap compared to other hotels we stayed. The room was very basic and had clean... More

We stayed during Christmas for 4 nights. It is a pleasant place which I'm sure would have been more enjoyable for us if the family were not preoccupied with their Christmas celebrations. The thing I enjoyed most was the coffee... excellent coffee. Also, the location is quiter than the other centrally located hotels. However, we had a few annoyances; The... More

I liked everything about this hotel. My room was comfortable, clean, with a proper bathroom. There is a good breakfast menu with a choice of food that you could also have in Europe (beyond banana pancake, toast, egg and rice). Although the hotel is not very central, but in ten minutes you can walk to the market or to the... More

It is outside the town centre in a quiet alley and away from the tourist restaurants, but a ride with a becak is cheap. If you're... More

The rooms listed on Agoda are the ones with hot water. If you don’t care about having hot water, you can get a cheaper room booked directly with them or by emailing them. The trouble with emailing them is that it took weeks to get any response from someone and the rate I was quoted was IDR 150k (I assume... More

Friendly and helpful hotel with pleasant staff. Rooms are basic and older so choose your room carefully. Not the place if you want luxury. My first room had no shower and a broken toilet!! But they changed my room without fuss. Good wifi but quite a few mosquitoes. Breakfasts are excellent and the best choice coffee in town. Avoid Agoda... More

For all the comfort you get in a room, it is very reasonably priced. WiFi was fast and reliable, the TV had plenty of cable channels to choose from, and the A/C worked very well. Beds were wonderful and the room itself was very spacious, with a balcony out back. The staff were friendly although the service was a bit... More

I found this place to be good, the rooms are plain but a good size and clean and comfortable. The small balcony was nice and useful for drying washing. The staff are friendly, it is a short walk into town, the restaurant also has decent food. You can also meet guides there.

We enjoyed staying here (after pias poppies was allready full). The staff was very friendly, we got e better price for our longer stay. The food is good. Especially the fruit platter! service is also friendly, but the waiting time for food can last long. (As probably everywhere in Rantepao) there are dogs and roosters in the neighbourhood and noises... More

We hired a car to drive up from Makassar. The Hotel Pison was easy to find and in a very handy location. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They have motorbikes in reasonable condition for hire. The breakfast is good value and the Tamarillo Juice comes highly recommended. Big rooms, budget priced, nice back balcony, easy going - what...
