“Best view for a seaview room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

This hotel is situated on a strategic just in front of Losari and very close to Trans Studio Makassar. Transfer to airport was hasle free since it is near to Toll Road entrance next to Sea Port of Makassar.
The room was very nice indeed. Ammenities are in good condition though it's an old hotel. Pool was not large enough for an adult to swim.

All and all, I prefer to stay again for my next visit to Makassar.

Located directly in front of losari beach is really a huge plus point. I stayed there for 4 days, enjoyed the food, morning walk and sunsets in losari. Nice food also. Usually i didn't expect much about the taste of local food in a hotel. But coto in this hotel is surprisingly delicious. Clean, tidy with friendly staffs. Local culture in this hotel is also impressive.

It was me n husband first time to visit makassar, and this hotel trully ruined it.
We were arrived at 3 in the morning, n found the front desk was empty. after a while an employee showed off n asked our reservation, n handed us a key. Yes, he didnt ask our ID Card, awkward. He didnt even bother showed us where the elevator was.
When we got to our rooms, voilaaa it's a huge tidy beautifully perfect room... only, it was non smoking city view Club Room, not the room we expected. We were order the beach view deluxe room. When we rang the front desk, the answer is so unsatisfied, he said they runned out the room n we just have to sleep there. You're not supposed to sell out our room to other visitor just because we didnt checked in at certain time coz we've paid it the day before.
They transferred us to the room we wanted the next morning.
The room (club and deluxe) are nice. The facilities are okey (only, there were no music channel available). The breakfast, at club or the Bellini resto was fine, nice nasi kuning anyway. love it.
Oh, i hate to say that the employees here are so lack of respect. No greeting, unfriendly security and unaware front desk.
Overall, if I have to go back to Makassar again, i won;t go back to this hotel anymore :)

After staying in a great hotel in Jakarta this one seems very different.
I got in early and had breakfast which is not very inspiring with some odd choices.

Tried to rest but the morning and afternoon prayers from across from the road is very loud.

Has a stroll into the shopping area and back along the water, all very dirty and lots of rubbish floating around. I came on business which is good as i would never come back on my own dime.

Room Tip: Don't face the water I you want to rest during the day.

Overall
There are definately better choices in Makassar. This hotel is rather old and slightly rundown. Toilet flush not working, mosquitos in the rooms.

Service
Basic english speaking staff.

Location
Got a noisy low level room which faces the bay, but not much of a pretty view there. Streets nearby are quite dark and the lobby faces a back alley.

Food
Seems like there is nothing much to eat around the area. Streets are dark so you will probably feel unsafe at night after a long day meeting to explore by foot. In house places are somewhat average.

My Wife and i Visited Makassar on business and were very happy with this hotel for recognizing the needs of non smokers (with non smoking floors/rooms with strict penalties if someone is found smoking). The front lobby is also a non smoking area which is great. Two elevators, english speaking, professional service and a comfortable room/bed/nights sleep. The floating mosque across the street did not wake us up (not sure if we were just so tired or if the windows were better quality/sound proof but we were happy). Now for bad points... it cost us $17.52 to reserve our room online (not refundable and not included as a credit in your final bill..and i've never heard of paying $17.52before at any other hotel to simply reserve your room online). The food/buffet is good but expensive, even to canadian/us standards at about $22usd (room service food delivery is also very expensive but good quality mind you). Internet is my biggest disappointment. There is free wifi & there is paid wifi (and ethernet with cable provided), but the FREE wifi is slower than a 14.4 modem..no joke .. cannot even load my gmail for 2minutes. So i paid for 24h of wifi broadband ($16bucks !) and it's bearable ..but still way over priced and just normal speed, not super fast. All in all, i rate this hotel 4/5 in makassar and likely the best choice when visiting the city. The ocean sea view was GREAT and in closing we were very happy with the professional service they provided.

Room Tip: suggest a better internet service and rate
