A lovely hotel with everything the tired traveller could ask for, including a pool. Brilliant facilities, well equipped and spacious rooms, wonderful views both outside and inside, superb food and amazingly attentive service. And more lifts that you know what to do with.

The hotel is located right beside a railway station that will link you to the high speed rail station. The rooms are small compared to other high end hotels in Tainan. The breakfast buffet was the best compared to the other 5 star hotels in this area. They had traditional american breakfast to local breakfast. There were a lot of... More

The hotel is located right across the tainan railway station behind far eastern mall, which is of course extra convenient if you travel by public transport. (This is not the HSR high speed train station, this one is located approx. 40min away) Rooms are quite large (had a king deluxe), the bed is wide and comfy. Furniture, like the general... More

Great service, well-equipped gym and pool, but overall I feel like for this price you can get something more. An old school high end hotel well located near Tainan train station, with a department store attached to it.

My room is a standard room but very spacious. Comfi bedding. Nice location right next to Tainan train station that you can take train to connect to High Speed Station, or by taxi takes 20-25 mins. Hotel is in an area with some old temples and opposite to a university. So if you prefer slightly away from crowd this one... More
