I had to go to Tainan for a short business trip and stayed here for one night. The hotel is located just outside of the rear entrance to the main Tainan Train Station. It is about 20 minutes away from the High Speed Rail Station. There is a department store next door which has a food court in the basement... More

For my weekend visit to Tainan, this hotel served me well in all but one respect: a view. Since the building is easily the tallest in the city in a central location and with acircular design i was expecting magnificent views of the area. I got just a glimpse. Yes my room had a view (east), but from the public... More

This hotel has everything you could need. It is a big modern hotel adjacent to a shopping mall. It is located across from a university and directly across the road from the train station which is not the fast train station. Many restaurants of all kinds within 10 mins walk.

The location of hotel is the city center. You can find the helpfull worker in here. The restaurants can serve every kind of kitchen. The room are so clean and the beds are so comfortable. If you want to go shopping, the biggest shopping center of Tainan is near the hotel. I can say only one word 'AWSOME'.
