“It used to be very good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

This hotel by the way the best in Toraja, used to be a very good hotel, but is a bit rundown.

The room is reasonable, as long as you are in the big building and not in the rooms of the Toraja houses.

The rooms are clean and quite good, old but everything worked.
By the way there is no air conditioning, but the hotel is rather hight situated, so at night it was ok, by opening the door to the balcony.

Room Tip: Ask for the room in the big building numbers 500 etc and 600 etc

The hotel looks very nice but when you look a little bit closer, maintenance was done last time in the passed century. Gekkos in the room are part of the scenery. Food at the hotel restaurant is plainly bad. Very bad! At breakfast the cook dropped a fork and happily picked it up and stirred the eggs again with the same fork.... There is nothing better so if you go there, that's what you get!

Located a bit outside the centre of Rantepao (you can walk to the centre in half an hour), with a view over some rice fields. Nice pool (beware of very slippery tiles around the pool). We got a large room. Bathroom with a bath.
Everything is a bit worn and outdated.
We arrived very early in the morning after a long busride from Tentena, but we didn't have to pay extra, which was a friendly gesture.
Breakfast was good and varied.

Oke, several things (like the fitness, oh is this also called a fitness...;-)in the Toraja Heritage were outdated, oldfashioned of out of order. But look at the nice atmosphere thanks to the Toraja houses. Look at the nice parc and view. And most of all: look (and eat) the really excellent food at the buffet (change every day). Next to this: Toraja land has a very special mix of authentic, traditional and modern life. Really worth to visit!

Room Tip: When you want something special and you're willing to pay for it: spend your nights in the Toraj...

Just stayed 3 nights at the hotel. As a first impression is a nice hotel quite and relaxing, but as you get closer, you can see many details. It is a bit old, needs some repairs, food is pretty weak, tennis court is completely destroyed, etc... Nice and gentle workers, and reasonable pool, however.

The hotel is a real plus when visiting Torajaland as the architecture mimics the village architecture that makes Torajaland so compelling. Good breakfast. Had one one of their special themed dinners and was most disappointed. Suggest lower room in the Rorajan style units as it comes with an outside shower as well.

Room Tip: Lower Toraja style units have outdoor shower plus the traditonal indoor one.
