Reviewed December 25, 2012

My family and I (5 adults) went to Sun Moon Lake (SML) for the first time in August 2012. I search through the web and look for an ideal accommodation in SML. I've short-listed a few popular and recommended stays like Laurel Villa but finally decided to book Meizhenguan 美真馆(or known as Mei Zhen House). It is not even listed in TA when I confirm my booking, but it was already well-known among travel-bloggers. Excellent feedbacks from them urge me to experience it myself.

Location:
Meizhenguan (MZG) is strategically located at the main street and less than 5 mins walk from the Shushe Pier (水社码头). There are plenty of eateries on the main street and a convenient mart just diagonally opposite MZG.

Room and building environment:
The rooms in MZG are specially design and have a unique theme for each room. The figures on the wall are all hand-painted. Since there are 5 of us, we have booked a 2 pax and 3 pax room. The 2 pax room is at the first floor with window providing the view of the main street of Shuishe. The 3 pax room is located at 3rd floor with window providing the view from the back of the building which gave perfect view of SML. The rooms were cleaned and equipped with TV, hair-dryer, slippers and free wifi accessed. Basic toiletries as well as bottle water were provided too. No coffee or tea bags were provided in the room as there's a common area (like pantry) at the lobby where room guests can have 24 hours of free coffee and tea. Room guests can just sit, relax while chatting and meeting other room guests and have a nice cup of coffee. The owner of minsu who is a lady (美珍) treated us some local fruits too after our dinner when our family was sitting at the common area. ^_^ There is a relax place at first floor which is decorated with many teddy bears and equipped with sofa, coffee table as well as bookshelf. Besides, room guests can access to the outdoor balcony from first floor while enjoying the view of SML. Though the view is not as picturesque as you can imagine, but it's really relaxing and you get to see people having an evening walk or cycling around SML.

Price:
One of the main reasons I chose this minsu was its price besides its excellent feedback. There are a lot of package offered by this minsu and you can choose the one which accommodate your need. Usually you'll get to save more when taking a package (room + breakfast + boat ride + cable car ticket etc). MZG gave birthday discount on room rate for room guest who check in during their birthday month. Since we were booking for 2 rooms and there were 2 of us whose birthday on August, we managed to get discount for both rooms during our stay. ^_^ After the discount, we only paid NTD 3000 for 2 rooms (5 pax).

Service and administration:
The owner, Mei Zhen (美珍), replied all my emails promptly and patiently answer all my inquiries about room rate and package, etc. She is a friendly and nice lady. She welcomed us warmly and she even treated us some local fruits after we back from dinner. Another reason why I chose Meizhenguan was because the owner provides sunrise watching service for the room guests. There is a saying that one of the most beautiful moments at SML is its dawn. One should watch the sunrise if you are staying overnight at SML. As I know, there’re 2 minsu which provide this service, one is Laurel Villa and Meizhenguan. The owner is a photography fans, she likes to take photograph of sunrise and sunset. She told me that this has become her routine except during rainy day. There’s the reason why she knows where to bring her room guests to for nice sunrise photo-shooting. Unfortunately, we didn’t manage to watch sunrise as it was a rainy day when we were there. But sure, we’ll be there again ^_^

Payment:
When I decided to make room booking, I was requested to pay a deposit of 50% of the room rate. There are 2 payment methods which is through online credit card payment at Meizhenguan website and Paypal. Since I have Paypal account, so I decided to use Paypal service. No worries about the deposit, it’s riskless and you just need to pay the balance upon check in later.
