We only stayed overnight but would love to have stayed longer. The gorge and scenery are amazing, along with the drive up to the hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful, making the experience very pleasant. The pool area is beautiful with the backdrop of the mountainside. And the night time movies are a nice way to relax in the... More

the hotel is inside Taroko gorge, so it is practical: you get up early, have a good breakfast, and head for the trails before the buses are on their ways. The welcoming is very nice, every one at the front desk speaks English, help for directions, and show us around. the bathrooms are clean, nice towels, good bedding and we... More

I booked the room from Hotel club through Trip Adviser at last minutes of this trip, although the price is a little bit higher than my expectation. When we arrived the hotel room, checked in and experienced all of amenities and talked with staff when we were confused by room location, we felt much better and really had a great... More

Location: This hotel is absolutely beautiful and perfectly situated in the Taroko Gorge with plenty of hiking trails within walking distance. Room: The room itself was huge and well appointed with everything you would expect from a hotel of this calibre. Food: Our room rate included dinner and breakfast and the food was faultless. Plenty of choices (both Western and... More

This hotel is situated perfectly in the Taroko Gorge. We had no problem walking to most of the trails, otherwise the hotel could help with booking of transport to more far away trails. The hotel itself is nice. Our (standard) room had a good standard. Great views from the rooms with gorge-view. Nice comfy beds. Ok breakfast, but lunch and... More

Stayed here for a 3 day long weekend - 2 adults and 2 kids - so had to book 2 rooms. Hotel location is excellent if you want to be located right in the gorge itself with easy access to the numerous trails and walks and sites - saves driving the hour or so from Hualien up/ down the narrow... More

Beware. This is not a pleasant place to stay. While on the surface, it "looks like a five star hotel", the service and overall experience is certainly not up to par. Don't pay for a place that doesn't fit the bill. Views are sub-par: Though they boast of their room views, the rooms on the first floor have views of... More

Unfortunately Silk Place Taroko was fully booked when we visited Taroko Gorges. It is indeed better to book well in advance during national/school holidays as this hotel is very popular amongst Taiwanese people and foreigners. Nevertheless, we visited the hotel for lunch and weren't deceived as the chinese food was absolutely delicious. The way they served the ice cream in... More

This hotel far exceeded my expectations. Immaculate, spacious rooms, roof top pool and tennis court, heaven. Sitting in one of the rooftop jacuzzis a few feet away from a mountain is a memory that will stick with me for a long time. Highly recommended for a luxurious and magical stay in the heart of Taroko national park. Everything we could... More
