Our original plans for Rantepao fell through, so we ended up booking a room last minute at Hotel Pison. We paid 200,000 rupiah per night for a room with two twin beds, private bathroom with hot water, and small balcony. It was very basic accommodation, but the room was clean and the staff at the hotel were very friendly. There... More

I took Bintang Prima bus (Rs149k for Scania super delux and worth it especially overnight) who dropped off rather taking me to station. Check in was quick friendly and within 30 minutes was enjoying dinner. Room was huge basic but clean. HC water AC. Restaurant served good food for reasonable price. In a quiet side with big sign 15 minute... More

Stayed for two nights. It is a cheap hotel and a bit dated but has got clean room with air conditioning, hot water actually working and sitting toilet vs the squat variety. It is worth the amount we paid for it compared to other hotels we stayed during our 2 weeks road tour of Sulawesi. Looks like a family owned,... More

The hotel was ok for a cheapie, but dont book here. We cash the hotel in cash (we had reservation through Agode) and 1 months later I paid again on my credit card. Agode is off no use and keeps checking with the hotel and ignores me. For what I paid in total for this hotel I should have a... More

Rantepao has nice atmosphere.. Pison Hotel has unbeatable location because the bus from/to Makassar will pick/drop you up just right in front of little street of the hotel.. Ha! :) Room was clean with no weird smell, furniture a little dated but no big deal.. Hot water and shower were fine.. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.. Booked car/motorbike rental... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, lovely family, really helpful, sorted out my motorbike tour with a superb driver who brought me to all the places I wanted to go to. The owner helped us out and drove us around to find a nice restaurant in the rain and found some palm wine to buy then picked us up when we... More

Three of us recently enjoyed an excellent stay here and found it right up our street. Excellent value for money. If travelling by bus from Makassar get the motorcycle rickshaw to the hotel. It is an early morning wake up! The hotel rooms are basic yet clean and secure. The staff will sort you out with a local guide and... More

After our room being given away at Pia Poppies, we headed over to Pison. The owner was really nice and told us we needed to wait and see if people checked out but in the mean time, gave us delicious Torajan coffee. The room was basic and clean...the hot water did not work...so they discounted it off the room rate.... More

The hotel is located 5-7 minutes of ride from the central market. However, this hotel offers a very nice resaurant with mighty coffee and good omelette! Rooms are good with nice beds and clean and basic bathrooms. You have outside chairs and table. We booked this hotel online (booking.com) and had no problem with checking into a room when arrived...

The location of the hotel is just across Pia Poppies hotel. I was surprised with the hospitality and modesty. Room & bathroom is clean and no need aircon because Rantepao air is cool enough. My favorite spot is dining room where you can meet and chat with everybody from around the world. Feels like home. Try local dishes and the... More
