    « Same same »

    The best thing here (apart from the friendly personnel) is the internet which is really quite good. The rooms are reasonable, but not overly special. Breakfast is on the weak side, as is the shower (not hot enough) and the amenities.

    « I love the room »

    I love my previous stay in this Hotel. Stay at Twin Deluxe Room, the room size is bigger than others 3 or 4 stars hotel at same room category, complete amenities and room facilities such us bath tub at Deluxe Category is point plus for Best Western Makassar because most of another hotel provide bath tub only at Suite Category. Breakfast is okay..

    « First trip to Makassar »

    The hotel is good, clean and the staffs are friendly. It is not exactly located by the beach but it is only 10-minutes walking to Losari Beach. The room is clean and comfortable. One thing that I found very useful in the room: there are many electricity outlets! I can charge my smartphone, tablet, laptop, mifi, powerbank simultaneously. Unfortunately, the water coming out of the faucet was not "heavy" enough. The shower is okay, though. The room's Internet connection was not the best.... just okay.

    « Average classic hotel »

    Stay 3 nights (19-22 sep) at this hotel for my biztrip in makassar, first impression when I walked in floor corridor the smell of air freshener not very good, to strong, when I want to take shower, found that hot water not working, I complain to room service, they said they will check the problem with the engineer. After 1 hour, tried to open the hot water, still no changed, then call receptionist to complain the same, the receptionist said hot water pipe is closed due to some leaks and propose to me to change the room, the problem why the engineer not informed to me immediately and why they sold the room if there is a problem with the basic facility, I changed the room and got better room with 2 windows show to makassar beach and city, with the same of room type, this room much better such as lighting and furniture. At next until check out, felt comfort with this hotel, my conclusion this hotel combine between old and modern style, and hotel's crew at every level must action immediately if guest have a problem, no need to wait 2nd call and should remove "beach" in the hotel name, because the beach is 400-500 meters from the hotel.

    « Perfect view on high floor »

    Check in at Suite room for honeymoon in the central of Makassar. Specious room with modern and stylist very comfort to stay. Hotel location on the main street absolutely strategic location, there are some restaurant available nearby the hotel with varied menus. The unforgettable one is privilege breakfast in room with complete menus and free car washing, that's only one in Makassar. This hotel are recommended to stay.

    « Bad service old hotel »

    Room was so smelly of cigarette that made me sick. Asked for a room to change but their answer is appaling. Can't change because I had used the room! I just checked in into the hotel and that was their answer... Second tries after I complained, their answer was that rooms are all fully booked at their Superior rate and I needed to upgrade to their deluxe room. No other options are offered even though we've requested for non smoking room. What kind of service are these!? Bad service and there are probably better hotel in Makassar.

    « Best receptionist »

    I just landed to Makassar and in hurry to catch the hotel and go to Friday pray. After check in, I left my bag and shoes to the receptionist. She take my shoes without feel dirty. Wow she said it is okay for me, Sir. Good receptionist I ever met

    « Satisfied »

    We went to Makasar during Idul Fitri holiday and stayed at Best Western Makassar. It is located on big street so it's easy to find. When we checked in, we got our room upgraded from superior to deluxe for free. The room was spacious, well-maintained. There was a bath scale, and the toilet amenities were complete. It was a bit pity that the room flippers and the bath robe was only provided one. The room and the bathroom were neat and clean. The hotel breakfast was satisfying, the egg station might not be too good, but overall...our decision to stay at this hotel was correct. Thumbs up!

    « Attending the Wedding »

    After long flight from Jakarta finally I and my brother landed safely at Makassar. First impression from bird-view of Makassar, I also impressed with its beautiful. The Makassar sky is full of light, like a pearl or crystal glows at the night darkness. I miss to picture it inside my camera but I still capture it on my mind. Great welcome from Tanah Para Daeng for us since this is our first visit to Makassar. After a tiring flight, we arrived at the hotel. Luckily our hotel serves us with good room. The cool temperature inside the bedroom help us to take a rest a while before attending the wedding service and ceremony. The ceremony is started from the hotel meeting room before go to the church. The church is located about 5 kilometers from the hotel. Near the beach? Hmm.. not really hehe.. But we take a walk with our relatives from hotel to the beach, maybe take 20 minutes to get Losari Beach. But for culinary spot, I am sure you will get many great restaurant near this hotel. Oya, the food menus are also good, also the services from the hotel crew. Our journey is memorable for us. The first journey to Makassar who glows like a pearl, 'the capital city of Eastern Indonesia.

    « Perfect Place »

    We spend our long weekend there, i thing best western is a perfect place for family holiday. They have a pool, fitness center and 24hours restaurant. The more important thing is the excelent service that they have. The staff is helpful, they welcoming us very warm and friendly. Every body smiling..really amazing personal touch. And also the room was perfectly clean and comfort. Very happy with them.

    « Not ideal as a transit hotel »

    Used this hotel for an overnight stay while transitting from Denpassar to Manado. It was advertised as being about a 20 minute drive from the airport and seemed to be the best quality, value for money hotel that suited us as a transit hotel rather than a resort/holiday destination hotel. Unfortunately it took at least 1 hour from the airport, via tollway, in peak hour traffic. Not ideal after a long day of travel. Having said that, the return journey early next morning, no traffic and via tollway, did take only 20 minutes. The room was fine - standard hotel room, bed comfortable, room clean, internet reasonable. Staff good. Restaurant very hot even with noone in it (air con on at all?). Food average. Breakfast reasonable variety of choices for Western preferences. FYI paid IDR 150,000 including toll fares from airport to hotel via arrangements made with tour guide at taxi transfer desk in arrivals hall. Paid IDR 175,000 approx for return journey via taxi from hotel to airport including tolls

    « it was okay »

    i enjoyed my two night stay here, there a little problem with the room service but the manager on duty Mr.Rachmat handle the problem well. the shower was great, the aircon was also great and they also served a good breakfast. it was a good experienced to stay here.

    « Average experience »

    My first time staying in a hotel where the room is leaking when it is heavily raining. Other than that, the food was okay, the room was nice with the hairdryer and stuff, and the hotel staff was very friendly. They provide iPod docking in each room, but too bad the wifi was not so good.

    « Thoroughly enjoyable experience »

    We recently stayed at this hotel for 10 days and found it very good value for money. Our room was light and spacious, meeting and exceeding all our needs. The included breakfast also catered for any culture with a very wide selection to choose from. We found the food in the restaurant very good and the hotel is also really close to several very good western-style restaurants. The staff were extremely helpful, respectful and considerate; we couldn't fault them on any level. My wife and I would not hesitate to stay here again and would recommend it above other hotels in this city that we have stayed in. Mike & Ruth G

    « Not a special hotel »

    Don't get mislead: this hotel is not on the beach (although not too far away). It's a standard Best Western hotel. Rooms are nice and large (room 0702 has a pretty view). They come with a tremendously overpriced minibar and a slow Internet connection. Bathroom was not very nice and amenities of really low quality. That the water out of tab wasn't potable, is unacceptable. Breakfast was OK, but again nothing to call home about. All in all, I'll try somewhere else next time.

    « I stayed here for nearly two weeks while on business. »

    The hotel staff did everything possible to make me feel at home. Room was clean and comfortable; fresh drinking water each day. The shower ran a bit cool, but tolerable. I enjoyed the swimming pool; that is my exercise. Nice view from the rooftop pool. Nice location. This is a good place for a working American to stay.

    « Clean but stuffy rooms »

    Poor air con, very stuffy room and smell of cigarette smoke drifting through (despite non smoking room), wifi hit and miss. Breakfast was average- Indonesian buffet selection. Hot water runs out quickly. Towels old and faded. Room was big, clean and very neat. Bed comfortable. Equipped with everything you need.

    « Awesome »

    Big, clean, tidy and fresh room. Nice ambiance and very good service. Located in the middle of city so we can explore the city. Another additional info. This hotel is near to losari beach which have amazing view on sunset...

    « Nice & Cozy Hotel Sorrounded by Local Seafood Restos »

    It was my first visit of Makassar, and did not realize that is quite modern & big city until get there. My trip was to accompany my spouse on her business occasion, so I was looking for a mid-range price with a good review, and we decided to have this hotel. On arrival at the front desk, I was greeted with an orange juice, just pleasant although that the lounge is not very spacious. Because it was not in high season, I was not reserve it online and it gave me a chance to negotiate for a corporate rate, and I got it. The room is neat & cozy just like any other good hotel but with less price. One little funny thing I notice is, the lift says it has 14 floors but if you look closer to the floor button inside the lift, no floor 4,5,6 listed there. One thing that I was happy about, the place is surrounded by restaurants mostly serve seafood as you walk closer to the Losari beach. Some nice café is also in the vicinity. We were out of luck not having the sea view room.

    « Still The Best Hotel For Me »

    For the third time I stay at this hotel, I saw a remarkable development, particularly in services, the most obvious is to greet each passed by customers. The price is cheap, but quality of service is best, the rooms were clean, spacious and quiet, increasingly make us feel at home in this hotel. Only one thing that needs to be improved is the quality of WiFi, to slow. Until now I still recommend this hotel as a place to stay while in Makassar.

    « Impressive service »

    Just check out today from three night stay for business trip and I can't wait to immediately wants to recommend this place. Location is strategic, you can walk around 10 minutes to the famous losari beach. But what i like the most is their sincere and humble service. Some staff already greet me by name, the housekeeping has adjusted room arrangement based on my habit (though i only stay for three days) . Very impressive and keep up this personalized service!

    « Great value for money »

    Spacious and very clean room, good TV, good air con and good internet. Comfortable bed. The complimentary breakfast buffet is very large and good mix of western, Indonesian and other asian. Within walking distance of ATM and restaurants. Good service. Car can be arranged to Toraja for about $150 CAD. I would recommend this one. Can be booked via the Best Western website. Courteous and friendly staff

    Nice hotel, big rooms and clean, good and lot of variety of food. Free afternoon drink every afternoon. Friendly staff. Strategic location, near to the beach and food culinere. Definitely will back to this hotel.

    « Friendly staff, clean, quiet »

    For this price, it deserves four stars. There are a few things to be improved: My shower was not hot enough and the breakfast was only so-so for a non-Asian guest (bread seemed a week old, but good fruits), but the staff was exceptionally friendly, the room clean with a nice view and although there was music playing in the hallway, it was quiet in the rooms as long as the AC was on. Lunch and finner were good. The hotel does not have a spa, but is close to many excellent restaurants and a ten-minute walk to the beach.

    « Fantastic service, made me feel special, comfortable and happy! »

    Great hotel. It's a Best Westen, you know what you get. It's not 5star but it's very good. The staff and care are exemplary which is what makes the difference! Congratulations and thank you! Pool is a bit small but does the trick and pool area great for an evening beer. I didn't try restaurant but had a snack by pool which was great. The staff looked after me so well. From airport transfer that was perfect and I even received an email to give my drivers name and mobile number. Welcome at the hotel was amazing. Room is really nice. Complimentary water and tea/coffee. Reception changed money for me. They phoned to see if I had settled in and had everything I needed. Then they sent me up complimentary afternoon tea! All so good, cheerful, friendly and helpful. I can't rate the hotel enough! I won't get to try the breakfast as I gave to leave at 4am but I have been offered a take out breakfast to take with me. Excellent stay.

    « Good room and location »

    This was my second visit. I had a deluxe room and it was quite deluxe: spacious, well appointed and nicely decorated; and there was a bathtub. Sadly, I decided not to use it because the hot water wasn't, it was merely warm, and a warm bath is nothing on a hot one. Breakfast, too, wasn't so hot, either, as other reviewers have opined. I agree: the croissant was a sad representative of the art and the coffee was the usual tasteless swill served in nearly all starred hotels. Oddly, unstarred hotels I've stayed in the provinces often serve excellent local coffee.

    « Better than others..sure!! »

    Last Week, me and my wife stayed at Hotel Best Western Makassar.. We have returned back to this hotel the past couple of years, due to the location, and excellent service received every time. The front desk staff is incredibly friendly and helpfull. The guest rooms are nice and very clean, the ambiance makes you feel like home! Be sure to book a room that has a big windows, where you can enjoy the view of makassar sea and the city as well. Usually we take our breakfast in the restaurant area where there is indoor and outdoor seating for smoker, but the staff also offers to bring it to your room, if the guest prefers this. This hotel is good value for money, and the service received makes it all so much better than others. Thanks a lot and see you next year...;)

Excellent stay at BEST WESTERN i thing... the staff was so accommodating, respectful, courteous and kind. The rooms are really great with big mirror at the corner. Breakfast buffed is fantastic, they have western, Chinese and local food as well. very tasty..easy to eat. Really nice experience to stay..Thanks to all staff of BEST WESTERN MAKASSAR..see u..

    « Price never lies »

    I stayed here only one night for a weekend gateway, with my husband and my almost 2yo baby. We arrived at 1pm, and found that the parking area is very small, but luckily we still got a space to park the car. The front desk staff were super polite, warm and always smiling. We got a cold welcome drink, i think it was orange juice, and it feels refreshing because the weather that day was super humid. Check-in process were fast, so it doesn't take long to go to our room. The room itself, were not spacious, but big enough for my baby to run, climb and jump. The bathroom, came with a bathtub, so it was a plus point, because mostly other hotels charged different price for rooms with bathtub, but not with Best Western hotel. The down point of this hotel were, 1. Eventhough the room looks clean, if you look at it closely, you'll find dirt on the floor here and there. 2. The bath towel had stain mark, also with the pillowcase and the corner seat. 3. They only gives you one pair of room sandals, one bath robe, and one toothbrush (this one i'm not really sure, because there were two boxes, but only one had toothbrush inside, the other one is empty.) Which is weird, because the room is suposedly for two person right? 4. The breakfast buffet menu was standard, but the taste is a bit off, too salty for some menu, and too dried for the others. And the croisant? Doesn't taste like croisant at all, and it's cold and dry, even the butter taste weird. The juices loaded with sugar, too sweet. They served fresh vegetable juices, but i can't taste what vegetables, because i only taste sugar in it. 5. The most down point of this hotel was their rules about towel in the swimming pool, the rules are only one towel per room. How ridiculous is that? The room itself carried 2 person in it, how come we can only borrow 1 towel per room?? Do they expect us to share our towel with our companion? Even I, don't want to share my towel with my husband after swimming, because it will be super damp. Now imagine with other people, who stayed in a room with their friends? Should they share the towel after swimming? Super weird. Eventhough at the end, they gave us 2 towels, but not after i insisted that i want and demand for 2 towels. So there, that's my review about this hotel. Like i said, price never lies. If you want cheap hotel, you get cheap quality. If you want a better quality, go find other hotel that a bit pricey. So no complaint here, i paid for it. Lesson learnt.

    « A lil' dissapointed »

    -Check-in process is completed after we have to wait for about 30mins because the room is not ready when we got there. -Poor wifi connection in room. But afterall the room and the toilet are neat (interiors are quite good) and clean enough. The staffs are very friendly and helpful.

    « Great Hospitality »

    The hotel are in the strategic location, close to the city and the beach, you can take a 15 minutes walk to the beach or just take a taxi for about 5 minutes with a cheap price. The room are likely other 4 star hotel also the meeting room, but i very impress with the hospitality of the staff, better than i feel in other hotel so far. Anything we need they give a very good response. Will come here again for sure if coming back to Makassar.

    « They gave us surprise »

    A very good hotel. The room was clean, spacious and well designed. The price was not expensive for what we got. It is also located near Losari beach. The special one was that the hotel staff gave us surprise by delivering us beautiful cake for free. None ever did that to us. A recommended hotel for traveler or business trip.

    « Trendy & Highly Recommended Hotel »

    This hotel is located in a strategic location, although on busy streets and crowded, do not worry we'll get quality sleep comfortable and quiet. The rooms are provided (I stayed in a deluxe room), spacious and clean, backed by a well maintained furniture. Good service, price is not expensive, and breakfast was varied and tasty, is the other advantages of this hotel.

    « Wonderfull moment of stay »

    Pick up by hotel's driver who served water and cookies during trip to the hotel. Welcoming by friendly hotel staffs with traditional welcome drink "cold sarabba". No need waiting longer time for taking rest on the cute non smoking room. Room very clean and well maintained. Nice and complete breakfast served on the buffet mixed traditional and western, will stay in this hotel for the next trip. This hotel one of the most recommended hotel in Makassar.

    « Worst BW Hotel I Ever Stayed In »

    Room is dirty and even after the HK clean the room the next day it is still dirty, the days after it still dirty. Yellow bath towel, spots on bed sheet and bath mat, not standard amenities. There was 1 day I got a nice tooth brush set with BW logo, but the other days only got the tooth brush set that used by "Melati" Hotel. Front office always give you "don't care" type of face and hard to smile, but I found the doorman or the security (not very sure and I forgot his name also) is very nice, he tell me things about surrounding and also "promoting" the restaurant in a very nice way.

    « Best choice with perfect service !! »

    I stay at Best Western Makassar at august 14th. I spent 2 night there. Actually, their property is very minimalis, but there is some point that make it perfect for me. The staff was awesome and helpfull with perfect service, Perfectly located all in walking reach. Close from the culinary area whichs seafood restaurants, museum, shoping area and the most important place "losari beach". They have a nice and clean rooms and lot of things included in the room rate. Breakfast buffet top and of high quality .Internet with high speed .Absolutely no issues and problems at all - highly recommended for business and pleasure.

    « Really Liked this Hotel »

    I had previously stayed at a more expensive hotel in Makassar near the beach and this hotel beat the other by miles. The building is new, the staff is very helpful and friendly. My room was great, reminded me almost of a Westin, very modern, fresh decor. Great bathroom and shower with robe. Soft sheets and a comfy bed. The neighborhood this hotel is in I felt safe to wander around. Found some good restaurants very close by. The breakfast buffet was great!
