APADA Hotel SENGKANG Reviews

For its princely cockroaches! Sep 21, 2009
As we did not want to drive 8 hours in a day between Makassar in South Sulawesi and the Toraja land(we drove finally 9 hours and half in the 2 days for 320 km), on our return drive we had a stopover in Sengkang,a busy market town famous for its lake(Tempe)with floating houses,its hand woven silk industry.It was the capital of a former Bugis kingdom with 2 "recommended" hotels:the Pondok Eka(housing numerous cockroaches according to a French site) and the Apada where many tours stop.

We stayed in the former cottage of the last Buginese princess,now called Hotel Apada and run by her nephew.

It is a very simple accomodation:we had one of the best? rooms with AC,TV,cold water only and 3 huge cockroaches and a cute young one.After a short fight and a profuse spraying,we were on our own.Don't tell my wife the nature of these bugs,she still believes that they were a kind of beetle!

If u have sheets,bring them cos their are too narrow and don't cover the bed.

We had a basic continental breakfast,the restaurant was closed.

Don't check your alarm-clock cos the mosque is very close( we only had its loudspeaker from 0430 to 0500)

rates between 20 to 30 Usd,roaches included.
