Good value for money, I have rated very good as the room I was given was an upgrade on the one booked with AC, TV and wi fi in room, albeit in my experience service could have been better with the restaurant closing early and the room not being made up during my stay. Also, and entirely the opposite to... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was a good one. Location of the hotel is in the highway so you can just tell your bus to drop you here. It is a little distant from the city center but manageable. They have clean simple rooms but spacious and with a cute little balcony. Wifi is also good. You... More

It didn't take us very long to see that this hotel was very well managed by the family. We had a huge room with TV, AC and balcony with a nice mountain view. Very good value for what they offer. It was bright, traditional and friendly. Manager Ratno was always ready to help, his uncle Elifas owned a coffee plantation... More

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
