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

Hotel Pison has a great location, it is on a quite place, just about 2 minutes from the main road. You can choose a room with cold/hot water and AC. It also has a nice restaurant with free wifi and friendly staff:) Moreover, there is a possibility to hire a guide as they are gathering in the hotel in the... 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

Rooms are not very clean, the toilet did not flush, the shower was dirty buuuuut we did not mind. It was cheap the staff was helpful and when you are travelling around amazing Toraja you don´t mind. You can rent a motorbike at a good price and Rantepao is a really small town so easy to get around. You could... More

When visiting an area I like to see the sights and stay a bit longer so I can get to know a few local people and have a little insight into the culture. I stayed at the family run Hotel Pison for 4 nights which gave plenty of time to look around the countryside of Tana Taraja and get to... More

Hotel itself is very nice, rooms are comfortable (You can choose between fan and AC- price is slightly different), they have a nice garden, that makes it even more cozy, service is helpful and friendly. But the best thing about the place is coffee! they serve it in a restaurant (as they serve one free welcome drink for the hotel... More

It was operated by the owner n family. We arrived at 2am (from Makassar) and there was no one at receptionist. First impression is a creepy hotel (we arrived at 2am... sure it was creepy). It is an old hotel. The room is average, considerably clean. The bathroom is ok only. Friend's bathroom door is broken. Found a lot of... More

In general this was a recommendable place. The food was good (especially good coffee!) and better than the food at poppies pia (right across the street). The staff were friendly, and the rooms were big and reasonably clean (for indonesian standards). The downside was that the next door neigboor kept his prize-rooster in a pen right in front of our...
