If you want to find a place to relax, taste the local foods, enjoy the tranquility of the country side, Old Five is definitely your best choice. You can feel the hospitality-- from the first step you walked in. They prepare all foods freshly from local organic farms--they let you try the tea and vinegar they prepare in house. It... More

Old five is a great getaway! It locates at the valley of Taiwan's two main mountain systems: Ali mountains and Mt. Jade (aka Yushan). I stayed in Old five for one night with my mom during Chinese new year holidays which was a true retreat from city's daily hustle and bustle. Thought I was born in Taiwan, It brought me... More

Old Five and his team, especially Richard and Tai Bear, are most friendly, sincere and helpful, going out of their way to make guests feel at home. Though the guesthouse is 15 mins away from the Shuli train station by car and private arrangements for Nantou attractions are required, they have outstanding concierge services and if you ask, can send...

The staff at 老五 makes our day. We enjoyed chatting with them after dinner and the night tour that was being conducted. My son enjoyed enjoyed playing with the dog lala.. the morning tour was informative for people who grown up in the city. Dinner was delicious with lots of vegetables. The bed was slightly hard but comfortable enough. The... More

After spending few days in Hualien, we headed for Nantou and checked in 老五民宿, my second time here. We loved this secluded homely minsu, tucked away in Yushan mountains. We were greeted by the friendly hosts, and stayed in the same room, furnished with wood-crafted furniture with cypress scent. Meals were served with handmade ceramic crockery. Buffet breakfast offers healthy... More

Old Five is the kind of place I'd been dreaming of since arriving in Taiwan: simple, traditional, organic and, most importantly, surrounded by green. The owner 'Lao Wu' (who gets his name from being the youngest of 5 brothers) is a one-man powerhouse whose eco-friendly ethos is apparent in every detail. The guest house sells local produce (oolong tea, plum... More

This guesthouse is located in the middle of deep valley, very quiet place. You can enjoy the range of green steep mountains from the balcony. The guesthouse building was beautiful, nicely designed. When I arrived there, I was quite tired and my stomach was not in good condition. But thanks to relaxing in the “Japanese” style room and having amazingly... More
