Shangri-La Tainan is conveniently located next to the Tainan City train station and National Cheng-Kong University. Nice decor, spacious rooms, friendly and attentive staff, delicious buffet with local specialties, what more could a tourist ask? Highly recommended!

A really nice hotel with gorgeous and really big rooms. The room had the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! The staff are very friendly and sorted me out an early check in and late check out, even though they were fully booked. The restaurants and bars serve a great range of food. Great location for exploring Tainan.

We stayed two nights in a horizon club room. This particular shangri-la isn't quite like any other I have stayed in. I suspect that's largely down to the hotel building itself, which according to a member of staff we spoke to was designed for Hyatt, then left empty for a number of years before shangri-la opened. It's certainly not an... More

Room size was great and the concierge service by email was fantastic, very responsive. Quite old style though and conveniently located next to a Mall and very close to the Tainan train station. However, I found that the non-smoking room had a musty smell which once you put the aircon on, it wasn't as noticeable. Also, the downside is that... More

Excellent hotel in Tainan. I love the room size, it's massive so plenty of space for you to unwind. Hotel and room are all well maintained and clean. The service is fantastic and I like how they had a pianist in the lobby playing music softly. The hotel is linked to a small shopping centre (which has Starbucks) and a... More

On a business trip, I stayed a week in a Horizon Club room. Big room, well equipped as well as the bathroom and all very clean. As a bonus you can count on a silent running air conditioner.

Stayed a few months back. The hardware is certainly decent. It was the same smell of all Shangri-Las. The room and toiletries were nice. The bed was comfortable. The service was decent but nothing to write home about. The gym is massive and fantastic. I will give them that. In fact, it is one of the best gyms you will... More

We stayed for one night in late March 2015. The hotel is located directly opposite Tainan railway station but this isn’t the station you’ll arrive at if taking the high-speed rail (HSR) from Taipei. From the HSR station you need to take a connecting, local train to Tainan. This takes about 20mins but the trains run very regularly (& coincide... More
