We chose to get at room at hotel Pison after seeing it in our guide book and having seen the reviews and due to its location in Rantepao which is approximately 15min walk from the town centre which was fine by us. We had a budget room with a small balcony out the back with two single beds. They had... More

My primary reason to stay in Rantepao was to see the Torajan graves and culture and Pison helped in every way possible. Its a great quiet place, away from the main street but yet walking distance. They have large spacious rooms which are neat, clean and great value for money. The coffee is great and a must try! They grind... More

Lovely mountain view from our veranda, and peaceful location. Friendly staff and very welcoming. Rooms were fairly basic, but clean and priced to match. Breakfast was a bit slow, but otherwise a good value hotel.

We arrived here having escaped the clutches of 'Oscar' the con-man tour organiser at Makassar airport who had promised us a 'mid-range' room as part of our fairly pricey 5 day Toraja tour. The 'mid-range' room turned out to be in the cheapest hostel in Rantepao and it was a dive. We fled and landed at Pison where we had... More

Hotel Pison is a long-standing institution in the town of Rantepao (the unofficial capital of Tana Toraja) and for four nights was my base for touring the wonderful Toraja country. The hotel has obviously seen better days - rooms are rather run-down, not exactly clean, and running water is a trickle more often than not. However, I did have a... More

Our room was ugly, really ugly, but acceptable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is pretty good and the services are correct. If you are looking for a normal hotel only to sleep and you don’t want to spend a lot of money this is a good option. You can arrange excursions with them, because they work... More

We booked a room on the last minute and arrived in the evening in Toraja. The hotel is run by a family and the owner is very nice and friendly. I asked the owner for a tour guide and He recommended us to have a tour with a guide called Pak Guru and a young driver, the 2 days tour... More

We spent in hotel pison 4 nights during aug 14, and we fell in love with the hotel and with the family that runs it. The rooms are basic, but there was hot water and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast which is not included in the price was great, black cofee is awesome, and pancakes are worth trying.... More
