The hotel is nice but it has 2 major problems: 1) it is near Makassar sea side so it is incredibly noisy, if you want to enjoy a relaxing day near the pool, forget it. 2) rooms are really old, old forniture, old carpets. They really need to be updated also because they are completly different from the lobby that looks a bit more modern. Restaurant is ok, nothing exceptional but ok.

Located right at the sea side. So, it has nice sea view. I think it is the only hotel with nice sea view.

Restaurant is rather mediocre. Same goes for their breakfast.

Room is big with ample space.

Though they have spa service, it is only just 1 small room, sharing with the hotel's so called gym.

Friendly staff. A quiet lobby and at times there is a duo to play classic Indonesian tunes with traditional musical instruments

And I was back there, for the several times. It's not because I really like the hotel, just 'cause I got a very good deal from my regular travel agent. Nothing really change since last year (or for the last 6 or 7 years to be more precise). The lobby, room, restaurant are exactly the same, along with the attentiveness and swiftness of the front table and concierge . It took me less than 5 minutes to check in, went straight to my room and the luggage came a very short after; excellent as usual.
Nothing change in the room; same old furniture, rug, bed and bathroom. They really strive to keep them good and clean, but you can't cheat time. They are tired and in desperate need of refurbishment.
The next morning breakfast surprised me and my wife, since it's probably the same menu we had last year without any significant change. In my last review, I complained about the lack of variety of breakfast menu during our 3 night stay. It seems (hopefully I was wrong) that not only they didn't change the menu during that 3 nights, but for the following year! Incredible. I cannot help but compliment the chef for the "consistency".
Overall, sadly I have to downgrade my rating from 4 to 3 points now. Probably I won't go back to the hotel unless I get a very appealing offer.

Room Tip: For a first timer: try to get room face the beach. The sunset view is breathtaking

Close to all attraction in Makassar town....
There are many hawkers serving the local savoury and delicious "banana fritters"...
cant recall the name at this moment. Worth the try.
Be careful when strolling the park opposite the hotel.... it is a famous hangout spot for tourists and locals alike.
Many small children will follow you around and ask for money...... you may just ignore them but thhey will contiunue to follow you all over the place...

Room Tip: Only one staff at the spa center. Hotel guest have to queue or pre-book in advance...

Some people say this hotel is the best in Makassar (and frequently used by VIPs), but in fact it's not as good as.

Cons:
-Old one, need a major renovation, especially in room.
-Breakfast: too mediocre for 5 star hotel.
-Dirty in corridor
-The room is less soundproof

Pros:
-Location: in centre of Losari Beach, and also near Downtown.
-Attentive receptionist.

Recommended: Maybe No.
Return To Sleep: No, I will sleep @ newer hotel, because this hotel is too old.

As usual, I always include photos in each of my reviews on Tripadvisor. - It's Real Review.

Room Tip: Choose room with Losari Beach view.
