Makassar to Rantepao and Rantepao accomdation

Hello,

we are going to Sulawesi in august. We will arrive to Makassar at 8.00 pm. We would like to take direct sleeping bus to Rantepao. The problem is that we don't know how could we book bus tickets in advance? Before going to sulewesi we will visit Sumatra (Bukit Lawang). Do You think that it will be possible to book tickets for this bus in Sumatra? what are the other options? We would also like to book a room in Rantepao bu we are not sure how to do it in best way (we are afraid of overbooking). We would like to stay in Pias Poppies Hotel. Please give us some advice.

If you scroll down to the bottom of the first website I mentioned, there is a comment dated April 8, 2013. That should answer your question.

What I'm not sure about is if you have enough time to catch the overnight bus. Even if your flight is on time landing at 8pm, can you make it for the last bus which seems to leave at 9:30pm? Indonesian flights are very often delayed.

If we fly into Makassar in the morning and want to take a bus right away ie 930am bus, can we do so without making a reservation? We only arrive in Indonesia on Bali the night before so we may not have a phone yet?

How can we make a reservation otherwise?
