In February 2018 I stayed in Makassar for three days before travelling on to Raja Ampat.  The Novotel is perfect for a stop over. It‘s central located, you can reach the city center in a few minutes. The rooms are not very spacious, but well equipped.

Unfortunately under the sink there is a towel shelf, which prevents the wheelchair from driving close to the washbasin. There was not a proper shower chair to borrow, after some back and forth we got a small chair from the spa, which was stable enough. In the hotel room thick carpets make maneuvering with the wheelchair a bit difficult.

The breakfast buffet was rich and delicious. The service staff were extremely friendly and helpful. So if you are a business traveller or plan a short stay in the city, the Novotel Makassar is the right choice.
