The room is spacious and stylish. The breakfast is great. One of the best I have had in Taiwan. The hearted outdoor pool is very nice and the lifeguard is always there even I am the only one to swim in the early morning. The location is close to train station so you can easily come here by public transportation.... More

I stayed here with my family. The staff greeted us professionally, and the check in was ease. This hotel is located next to a mall, and about 20minutes to the high speed rail by car. Rooms : We choose the basic, and it is indeed big, and quite comfortable. I appreciate that it is clean. Breakfast : The choice is... More

As yet, I have not been disappointed by any hotel in this chain and this hotel lives up to the mark. From the initial greeting at the door, to reception and throughout my stay it was like I had stayed here many times before. Recognition and warmth greeted me in heavy quantities. The concierge who talked me through the local... More

This hotel may have been appealing 20 years ago, but now it feels like an old casino, especially in the dimly lit, low-ceiling hallways. The hotel buffet was excellent, however. The location is good, but about a 30minute drive from the industrial area.

Used to stay at the Thyai Landis back in the day but ever since this hotel opened up, it's the place to be. Situated right on the University ave, there are plenty of restaurants around to walk to, not to mention there is the FE21 mall attached to it that has a food court and grocery store in the lower...

I stayed at Horizon Club Deluxe Room so I got to use the service from the lounge often. Overall, most staff were pretty good and polite. When i had any questions, the staff were be able to answer it all and found me the answer. So I really enjoyed during my stay.

Shangri-La's Far Eastern Plaza Tainan is one of my favorite Shangri-La hotels and is definitely the best hotel in Tainan.

It seems a little incongruous that a city such as Tainan should have a real 5 star Shangri-La, but it does. The building towers above the city and is right next to the central train station (not the HSR one, but the other one). The hotel also has a connecting door into the adjacent high-end department store. The hotel is... More

The best hotel in Tainan, the tallest with excellent view of the city. It is a great location for shopping and dining. The hotel has the direct access to the shopping mall which made it very easy to shop disregard the weather outside. The breakfast is one of the best selection in Tainan, we all enjoyed it so much.
