Excellent location at Town center, comfortable clean rooms”
Despite some other larger hotels around Toraja, I would say this hotel is probably the best for your stay. Although because of the price, might not be the best value you would get in the area. Location is excellent in the town center, walking distance to many places. Rooms are probably the cleanest I found around Toraja. Breakfast was good. The hotel is not big, so it's easy to reach your room (especially after a tiring day full of activities). I seriously recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Toraja region.
Great jumping off point”
So many places to go to around Rantepao. This hotel is right in the middle. Breakfast was AMAZING! A nice treat to break up all the local food I’d been having. Great river views.
Great hotel in great location ”
If you want to explore Toraja (and you really should as it's unique) then Rantepao is the place from which to do so. And The Luta is the best in Rantepao. Why the best? Because it is newly built and clean and a good deal at approx $65 on Agoda. Though I'd recommend paying a bit more to upgrade to one of the suites as they come with bigger/better bathrooms. Sure, some have criticised it here ("patchy Wifi" "no elevator" "tired restaurant" ) but frankly, if you are too tired to walk to the lobby to check your email or around the corner to one of the local restaurants on the main street, perhaps you shouldn't be planning to come trekking. As you can tell, I like the place (quirks and all) and am prepared to cut it some slack: after all, is it fare to judge a hotel in a remote corner of Sulawesi by the same standards as one in Sydney or San Francisco?
Lovely hotel with small rooms”
being located in tana toraja, it could be the case that the quality standards of this hotel were not so good. however, rooms were very nice, even though they were small. clean. there was wifi available for free(they say for 2 hours, but they are quite flexible about this). breakfast choice are limited but still good.
The hotel was quiet, a short walk to the main street. Good sized room, clean and wonderful staff.
Verademing in Rantepao”
Prima centraal gelegen hotel, aan het eind van de dag heerlijk bijkomen van alle indrukken. 's Avonds in hotel erg donker en iedereen eet aan de overkant in Resto Monika. In en rond hotel veel gidsen die te veel geld vragen, vaak 200 euro of meer voor 2 dagen gids/driver. Is echt te veel. 150 euro voor 2 dagen is goede prijs. Je hebt een gids wel nodig om naar de begrafenissen te gaan.
Very comfortable with gorgeous view of the river from the Junior Suite ”
This is my second stay at the Luta and I would recommend it every time. There are different classes of rooms and I would really only recommend the Junior suite. Very large room with very comfortable King size bed, easily big enough to add another bed for children. Also there is a sofa and small table and chairs for snacks in the room. The only draw back is that the wifi very rarely reaches the 3rd floor.
Not much better in Toraja”
Stayed at Luta Hotel for 3 nights. It was ample time to see the sights in the area. Situated 5 minutes walk from the busy main street in town. Big hotel with very few guests while I was there ( August 3-5/17). Front office staff spoke English. Hotel claimed to have wi-fi in main lobby but I was never able to get any reception. I had to go to a cafe shop ( Cafè Aras) on the main street to get amazing hi-speed reception. ( and decent food and great coffee!). Don't get AC at tge hotel should you stay there. No need because it gets cooler in the evenings. Request a room at the back or interior. Font rooms of the hotel absorb the street noise outside. I know because I spent my first night in such a room. Comfortable room, big bed, TV ( that I never turned on), fridge, no safety deposit box in rooom to store passport etc. WC was fine yet there is very weak pressure and water flow from the showers. Major bird-bath! I stayed in two rooms while there ( was assigned a room above the street my first night and requested a change for my remaining two) Again, very little water flow even in the second room. Hotel has a pool but it was never used by guests. Morning breakfast was fine. I never lunch or ate dinner there. The Main Street has little food choices ( for a Main Street) and many tourist crowded into, one-of-two locations of Cafè Aras. No locals in the restaurant at all only tourists. In fact I never saw a local restaurant on the Main Street. I wanted a hotel in walking distance of downtown and the buses to and from Makassar, and that I got. Took a 10 hour night bus back to Makassar, and the terminal was a 10 minute walk up the street. The river bedside the hotel is very polluted with garbage along the banks. The view is lovely from the restaurant but the river below demonstrates the problem with garbage and plastics in Indonesia, sadly a mess. The surrounding countryside is breathtakingly beautiful. Get out of the city and into the rice terraced fields. It's certainly wor
Great hotel right in town”
For us this hotel was a great choice. It was right in town which allowed us to check out some of the local restaurants/cafes. It's also just down the street from a local market. The hotel itself is a calm oasis to relax in after a day of trekking. Wifi spotty if in your room. The garden in the center of the hotel is nice, as is the river out back. Breakfast is suitable. The dining area is really nice with river views.The coffee in Toraja is fantastic.
Good location near the main street. We had a room with a small balcony to view the river.. very nice. The room was nice and clean. A bit overpriced but not a lot of options in that category. I will stay there again.
Quite comfortable, but not satisfy with the hot air inside the room due to no air-conditioner provided. There were many mosquito easily get into the room as the hot room forced us to open the balcony door. Ventilation fan would not enough for cooling the room. Hope LUTA could provide fan or air conditioner for customer, I'm sure customer would love LUTA more. Thanks.
Perfect Resting Place”
It was great because its location. Not very far from the city's center but very quite and in a very safe surroundings. My mom and aunt loved the fact that it is very close to the traditional market. Using bentor (becak motor), a tricycle motorbike, you can get to the souvenir shopping area for 15k rupiahs, return trip to the hotel. It is close to our bus stop so it is very convenient. The only thing is the breakfast but you can always get better deal if you explore outside the hotel.
Pleasant hotel in the center of Rantepao”
Best location as it was in the center of Rantepao so in the evening you can walk out and go for a massage at the nearby spa, or eat at one of the restaurants. The rooms were good, modern and new - with nice hot shower. Breakfast was simple with choices of local and continental dishes. In the evening we dined in and the food was nice and reasonably priced. Must try the "pamarassan" beef - it is a local speciality similar to buah keluak. Also loved the fresh mixed juice which had passion fruit and tamarillo juice in it.
Nice hotel with good rooms, good value, nice central location and internal garden....but with two caged (tiny cages) hawks. Stinky and sad. No wild animal deserves to live in a tiny cage. For breakfast, put some yogurt on the breakfast bar. Hotel arranged driver and car for 2 days, 400K Rupiah for Toraja tour one day and 1.5M Rupiah for ride to Makassar the next with sight-seeing along the way. In Makassar, driver says: You need to pay another 400K Rupiah for sight-seeing tour on the way to Makassar. Hotel and us never agreed to that. After a nice stay and nice ride and sight-seeing, that left a sour taste to the whole Luta-arranged tour, and driver.
Clean, comfortable hotel in the centre of Rantepao”
This place is very centrally located in Rantepao, just near the market. From here, it is very easy to reach all the bus stations to/from Makassar, and also the bemos. There are numerous guides all over the town, so that is also easy to arrange. Rooms were tastefully decorated, had a colossal bed, hot shower and was cleaned daily. There is no air conditioning or fan in the room, but if you ask at reception they will give you a fan that you can use for the entirety of your stay completely for free. Breakfast is included, though isn't great. Vegetarians watch out: most of the rice/noodle dishes have very small pieces of meat and/or fish in them. The pool is cold, which is a great way to feel refreshed at the end of a hard day's trekking. Overall, a wonderful experience. Staff were largely incredibly friendly and helpful. I'd definitely suggest staying here, even though it is quite expensive.
Centrally located, close to the main street, but quiet. Comfortable, large, nice room. Air-con is not necessary as the evenings are quite cool. Nice garden and pool which I didn't use. Bufet breakfast with few (but adequate) western choices. Good restaurant.
Wonderful base to see cultural sights”
What a great stay. This place is the best in town (and prices to match) but we stayed in the best room as well and it was so worth while. There are a number of tours and drivers around who speak ok English, but obviously with a Guide on top of that costs more. Word on the street was it was around Rp300,000 for a driver for the day and Rp500,000 for a guide. The hotel also offers more expensive tours.
Friendly Staff, Cheap Minibar, Excellent Scenery”
They staff are exceptionally friendly, understanding, and attentive to our needs. The scenery is remarkably excellent. The hotel is by the rapidly flowing gorgeous river, overlooking the mountain. There's a traditional market just a short block away from the hotel. We met the owner of the hotel during our brief stay, and we were impressed by his friendliness and familiar approach. Very rare to find the hotel owner in such a nice establishment.
Comfortable, easy & nice hotel with friendly staff”
I extended the stay to 3 nights. In general the hotel is cleaned, nice & look new. I've been travelling & stayed at many private owned hotels in indonesia. But maintenance does not seem to be important. All outside look good but dusty, rust & cleanness still exist. Bathroom smell some kind of gasoline. shower head is not spraying water properly because it was chocked or something. housekeeping seems to only replace things used & changed bed in the room, but mirrors, table, bath, cabinet dust not wiped. I wonder if they even brush or cleane the shower. I found cigarette dust on table runner coffee table from the day arrived until checked out. Wifi is not smart system & not convenient. Should invest in more devices.
Good value hotel ”
We had a nice stay at the Luta, Good hotel, pretty clean for indonesia. Good architecture. We had a vue on the little garden so it was really quite. Very nice breakfast,with european stuff, fresh juice, bread, et. Probably the only really nice hotel in Rantepao!
