At around $20/night for a clean room with a/c and hot water this is great value. Very helpful staff, food is basic but tasty (we ate there each of the three nights of our stay). Restaurant area doubles as a good space for winding down after a long day out - free wi-fi. Serves delicious Toraja coffee too.

We were happy with Hotel Pison. It was everything we wanted. Comfortable, quiet-ish, (nowhere in Toraja is quiet now that the world has brought the Torajans chainsaws), hot water and run by a group of very nice people. Breakfast is not included in the room rate, (at least it wasn't in ours,) but it is very good. The coffee is... More

I spent a few nights in hotel pison in a superior room with ac and hot shower. They've also different rooms at different prices so you can choose that one which is on your budget. You can also rent a motorbike in the hotel or ask for a guide. I can recommend the guide Otto Miting. He speaks fluent english... More

We stayed here during our trip in Toraja. The room is quite spacious althought it's very basic without AC. You can get the aircon room with 70-100k IDR price difference. The hot water in the shower didn't work and the water was dirty when the first time we used it.

This hotelis definitely worth to stay at least because of the owner Elli, who will help you with everything in Toraja: organise bus to Ampana, find guides around Rantepao, suggests with drivers, ojeks, coffee, local food. We love Elli and Pison Hotel!

The hotel is very quite and peace. Standard room is very neat and clean. But the toilet flush was not working, and water flow was small at shower. The food was very affordable and delicious. This hotel is recommended for budget traveler in north Toraja.

The bus drops you right outside the hotel, which is useful if its raining and late. The hotel is next to a small church and you can hear singing some mornings. The room was clean and a good size, the water was hot. Right outside the hotel on the main road is a very helpful tourist information office. The only... More

We stayed here during December. Because it was almost christmas all the homestays were booked or filled with family of the owners. Hotel Pison was almost empty and we booked a room here. We negotiated a cheaper price because of the low season. It was cheap compared to other hotels we stayed. The room was very basic and had clean... More

We stayed during Christmas for 4 nights. It is a pleasant place which I'm sure would have been more enjoyable for us if the family were not preoccupied with their Christmas celebrations. The thing I enjoyed most was the coffee... excellent coffee. Also, the location is quiter than the other centrally located hotels. However, we had a few annoyances; The... More
