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

My family of 4,with 2 children age 8, 10, spend 3 days 2 nights at the Silks Place in June 2014. The online booking and communication with the reservation was fairly easy. The hotel offers different packages that includes lodging,dinning, sightseeing and transportation which we took advantage of and was quite happy with it. We had a rental car and... More

Silks place is a resort style hotel situated in the beautiful Taroko Gorge. The hotel is well kept and staff are friendly. Although we were the only westerners in the hotel, all staff spoke good English. Meals are buffet style which went down well with the kids. The food was not spectacular but absolutely good enough. The real selling point... More

Silks Place is the perfect base for exploring the beautiful Taroko gorge. I am glad we staid for 2 nights so we can see the trails and make use of the various facilities in the hotel.

Two years ago, we booked a gorge-view room and enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evening. This time, the hotel imposed a surcharge on the gorge-view room with the balcony. Last time, we preferred the Wellesley western restaurant. This time we definitely preferred the Chinese one. Meals are offered in two seatings - at 5:30 and at 7:30. We... More

This is a nice hotel in the middle of the Taroko national park and ideal to explore the sights. We stayed on the retreat floor and had a large and well-designed room. The hotel also offers tours and had a pool/gym/lounge area so that you could easily spend a day without having activities organized in the national park. The breakfast... More
