I came to stay at the Shangri-La in Tainan as part of a big group on business (around 50 of us!), so checking in was always going to be a bit of a nightmare. If they'd been smart, the organisers would have allowed us to pre-check in and liaised with the hotel so that when we arrived we could just... More

This is the second time we stay at a Shangri-La hotel, and I must say that the previous one was slightly better. Our room on the 29th floor had an amazing view, my favorite part of the stay, second to the great breakfast buffet. I was not expecting to like it so much! However, since my husband hurt his foot...

The Shangri-La Tainan has impeccable world-class standard. We stayed for 2 nights here. Upon arrival, we were escorted directly to our room where a beautiful lady named Venus checked us in using portable credit card chargers and billboard. What a simple yet magnificent way to increase the VIP experience! You avoid the line and are shown around the hotel (which... More

Great hotel. Very clean, high standards. The food in the hotel's restaurants is outstanding and service is excellent through out too. About 90 minutes south of Taipei by high speed train. I highly recommend.

I've stayed at Shangri-La Beijing several years ago and it left me a great impression. This time, the Shangri-La Far eastern Tainan left the same impression. Originally I was to stay there for six nights, but my job finished early and I left a day early. I requested an airport pick up service (from Kaosiung). The driver held a sign... More

Don't bother eating at the buffet restaurant if you are vegetarian, the food form the "vegetarian" menu is disgusting and inedible. We paid the full price for the buffet just to eat salad. We waited nearly an hour for our choices from the vegetarian menu - they were all disgusting. This was the worse food and service that we have... More
