The most pleasant area to stay is along the waterfront south of the port (which also has the best nightlife), while choices a few blocks away from the sea or around Jl Ahmad Yani are central and a short walk to the action. Unless noted otherwise, all of the following prices include breakfast. All places listed here have Western-style bathrooms.
New Legends Hostel :Catering to backpackers, this clean and very helpful place has an upstairs cafe where you can meet other travellers over breakfast or movies at night. The rooms and dorms, however, are small, windowless and box-like. Cheaper rooms are fan-only and have shared bathrooms. losmen Semeru . This long-running budget stalwart still offers some of the best basic crash pads in town. Rooms are minuscule but have TVs, attached mandis and air-con. The atmosphere isn't exactly glamorous but service is friendly. No meals are served.
Hotel Grand Wisata : This is a sprawling place with options ranging from fan-cooled cheapies with shared bathrooms to larger though worn-looking rooms with all the mod cons. A skinny courtyard with palms and some potted plants adds some light and a feeling of space.
Hotel Lestari : Freshly painted rooms, all with satellite TV, minibar, hot water and air-con, are among the best deals in Makassar. There s not much character but for friendly service,a clean comfy bed and a good night's sleep hard to do better than this.
Pondok Suada Indah : One of Makassar's more interesting options, this place is set in a spacious, old colonial-era house that feels far from the city's hubbub just out the front door. Rooms are huge and are decorated with a tatty mix of heavy antiques and cheap modern furniture; some have age-worn bathtubs and all have little TVs with local channels.
Asoka Homestay : An oasis just steps from the waterfront, this charming family-run place has five rooms surrounding an immaculate flowery courtyard. Everything from the little breakfast tables draped in pink lace to the large and airy rooms is tended with love. The one 'super' room has a small terrace and kitchen and is a good option for families.
Hotel Maracaya : You'll have to pay the high end of the price range to get a window, but all the rooms at this newish hotel are sparkling clean, with uncommonly big beds draped in crisp sheets. Enjoy your HBO after a hot shower.
Hotel Dinasti : The Dinasti takes its Chinese theme seriously, from bell-boys in silk caps with a fake braid hanging down the back, to the rather elegant rooms all decorated with traditional Chinese furniture. The welcome is very friendly and all rooms include satellite TV and fridge. There is also a whirlpool hot tub available for guests.
Hotel Yasmin : Victorian patterned wallpaper and upholstered chairs add a little decadence to this bustling business hotel. Rooms are small but in good shape and the staff are formally professional. There's a cafe-restaurant and karaoke-dance bar on site.
Hotel Losari Beach :Boasting a great location overlooking the seafront, the bland rooms are a bit disappointing for the price. Prices rise rapidly for a premium sea view.
Kenari Tower Hotel : Muted lighting, a beige-and-mauve colour scheme and minimalist Bali-style decor make this brand-new hotel the most stylish place in town. A stone's throw from the seafront, even some standard rooms have sea views, and the rooftop terrace restaurant is a prime location for sunset cocktails. Chill out afterwards in the Jacuzzi or the on-site spa.
Santika Hotel :The second most chic hotel in Makassar, after Kenari Tower, the Santika isn't as well located for views, but the rooms are luxurious and have a calming beige-and-white decor.
Quality Hotel : The liveliest hotel in Makassar. Staff here are young and fun and there's a happening nightspot in the basement . Rooms (request a sea view) are modern, very comfy and excellent value. There's a lovely Jacuzzi with ocean panoramas, plus a sauna and steam room.
Both these places offer frequent promotions, with discounts between 10% and 25%.
Hotel Pantai Gapura :The closest thing you'll find to a resort in the city centre, Hotel Pantai Gapura is a bit kitsch but the ocean views, swimming pool, palm trees and water gardens do feel like a holiday. Rooms are poor value but the giant Bugis-style over-the-water cottages are truly special. There is also a sunset bar-restaurant in a funny old cargo boat.
Imperial Aryaduta Hotel : This is the place to see and be seen with the ritzy Asian business elite. Huge rooms with amazing sea views would be better if the carpets weren't stained, but you could easily forget about this at the spa, the seaside pool or by holding your nose at any of the several smoky bars.
