To summarize it, at Tien Lai resort you pay Four Seasons room prices and you get an old and run-down hotel which (at max) has 3-Star standard. Rooms at the resort are big however need some urgent renovation. Interior is oldish (everywhere in the hotel) and bathrooms need an urgent, modern touch up. You have room service only from 7pm-10pm...

We have been to Tien Lai about 5 times. Around 75 minutes from Taipei by regular one hour bus service from near Taipei main station. The bus stops directly outside the resort. Whilst this is also a hotel, we have never stayed, but go there to use their hot springs which are fabulous. They have pools of varying temperatures and...

Very comfortable hotel located at Yang Ming Shan, with nice hot springs, swimming pools. Location not very convenient, food choices very limited. There are pool table, table tennis and basketball court.

We enjoyed staying at the hotel although it's far away from shopping area and attractions. But the hot spring facilities and nice mountain view has already make it worth while to just stay in the hotel and relax. There's a variety of outdoor hot spring pools to enjoy from varying in temperature and steam room, cold spring and hot spring...

Many hot spring pools- few private, few open for guests, some with additional payment for complete privacy. Japanese rooms have exclusive hot spring pools attached to the room. Good mountain view. Big rooms. Well maintained facility. Two restaurants for dinner. Good food. Breakfast had good spread.

I visited for a business/family trip. This hotel is family friendly and has good sized rooms to accommodate multiples in a room. It's a fun environment for kids and the internet is great. On the other hand... It is super run down and dirty. Our room smelled like urine and the shower drain was plugged and not functioning properly. I...

We visited this resort to use the pools and to have lunch. It is an excellent place to relax for a few hours. There are many pools with different temperatures and one with little fish that eat the dead skin off your feet. There is an undercover section with some cooler pools and hot rocks as well as more a...

Tien Lai is a well known hot spring resort with some history and I was visiting it with my family. Even if it's not a new resort and the exterior shows some age, the room is very spacious and newly renovated with relaxing light green and white/gray tone. I also like the amenities it provides in the room as its...
