The Shangri-La is a beautiful hotel in a city where you need to attach your camera to your body when you go out. There are so many temples, parks and just great things to take pictures of. The hotel is great and the food is fantastic. The Breakfast Buffet is huge with a large number of things I had never... More

I have had a love affair with the Shangri-La hotel chain since before I even stayed in one, because my father used to bring home calendars and catalogues from his journeys. Although this particular hotel might not be the chain's crown jewel it is certainly one of the friendliest. The well meaning staff makes up for the minor hickups that... More

My boss have stayed in this hotel for more than 3 times. However, everytime I call to make a reservation, it takes a long time for them to answer and to retrive the data. Once the reservation told me that the deluxe room my boss stayed last time was full, so I have to book him in a "Horizon Deluxe"... More

A good hotel at great value. It is the only hotel from an international chain around the city. The selection of food at breakfast is good. It is convenient, taxis can be easily found and is within close proximity to the train station. The staff is always on hand to give you advice for tourist attractions.

The hotel is within 1min walk to the Tainan train station so I always pick it when I visit Tainan. I have great experience staying in the room, cozy sofa and the bed is very comfortable. The space is quite enough for couple of friends to hang around or chat in the room. Although the yellow light illumination might not... More

I've stayed in a lot of hotels, almost every week. The thing about this one is the services is beyond expectation. The front desk remembered my room number from check-in.

The room is quite big and the bed is really "huge", i slept very well during my trip last week. The decoration is not that impressive but it's almost clean everywhere.
