We read the previous comments about the cold, lack of English, etc. and requested a radiator for our room prior to arriving, but it was totally unnecessary. The hotel management had clearly read the reviews as well and the hotel was lovely and warm for the middle of winter, for a person especially sensitive to the cold. The service was... More

One of the very limited options for staying inside Taroko Gorge, this establishment nevertheless delivers with gusto. The attitude and friendliness of the staff was solid throughout our stay, and they were very helpful in answering all queries. The breakfast buffet had plenty of options, while the Western buffet for dinner was an excellent choice- a good variety supplemented by... More

This resort renovated 4 years ago, now is in best condition. it`s a resort, not a ordinary hotel.

But now, due to the scaring massive tourist from china, Korea, japan...they usually... More

We had stayed at this hotel in December 2014. We were picked up by the hotel van at the Hualien train station. The location is great; right inside Taroko National Park. A lot of people take day trips to visit the Taroko National park but I think it's definitely worth staying inside the park and spend some time to enjoy... More

This hotel optimizes its prime location deep in the gorge. The rooftop deck and pool area are extremely well done. The goldilocks jacuzzis (at least one of the three will have a temperature that is “just right”) have jaw dropping views. Our suite was pleasant and spacious; nice big bathroom, double sinks. The enormous sofa also served as a bed... More

Silks Place is more like a mountain lodge than a standard hotel. It is designed for people who want to get out and enjoy nature and then come back to a hearty meal and some entertainment. The focus is on local rather than western tourists but they are pretty accommodating for westerners. We booked one of the retreat rooms -... More

If you don't mind Lucifer at the front desk (literally, her English name is lucifer and she thinks this is ok?!) the service is much improved! Visited last month and the dining service was a bit of a mess. But, this time was great! Relaxing and beautiful. Wouldn't mind them changing up the dinner menu a bit. After two nights... More

The hotel itself is a mixed bag. Parts feel like a five star hotel, parts feel like a school building. But, the location, the views, the amazing food, the warmth of the staff, the tours of the jaw dropping Taroko scenery (right up there with the Milford track in New Zealand) and the amazing nearby walks make this a fantastic...

We booked this place last minute and although more expensive than what we're used to, what the heck, it was Christmas Eve so we decided to splurge for the evening. And we are SO glad we did! Because they were out of regular priced rooms, we got a special room (retreat level on the third floor) with access to the... More
