This inn can be difficult to find, so study its location and pictures on Google Maps and Trip Advisor before going. It's not far away from the Shuitou Port, maybe 25 minutes by walking or 5 minutes by bus. At least in the winter, staff is very limited so you may end up at a completely empty home. However, one...

Personally I consider Qin Inn a very special place to stay in...not gonna introduce much coz the details are all on the official site for guests to check them out. I got exactly what is described on the site - aesthetic traditional old building with comfortable rooms and nice staff. The only point to note is that this is not... More

The inn is located in Shuitou village, which boasts some of the most diverse architecture in Kinmen thanks to the efforts of Southeast Asian returnees. (One example is Deyue Tower.) The compound itself is a well-preserved and comfortable joint with comfy courtyards. Having said that, do take note the rooms can get a little damp in the day as this... More

This well appointed inn has nice rooms and is located in the charming village of Shanhou, near the ferry terminal in Jinmen. Like much of Southern Fujian, practically half the population left and many of its people went off to Balikpapan in Borneo and Brunei. They brought much back and Qin Inn is an eclectic architectural wonder that blends the... More

Our family stayed at Qin Inn for 5 nights during our trip to Kinmen. There is a long list of things we liked about Qin Inn. It is beautifully and tastefully decorated, with an amazing sense of history. The location is great; it is close to a bike rental station (bikes are free to borrow at the nearby elementary school),... More

I went to Qin Inn with high expectations as many of the reviewers gave very high scores for this B&B. However, I was a little disappointed when I stayed there mainly because the owner, Chiang Lin, wasn't in Kinmen. When I arrived at around 2.15 pm, the place was locked and I waited outside for around an hour. I tried... More
