“Adequate for a pet friendly overnight stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

My parents and I stayed here for one night while visiting Alishan Tuesday and Wednesday. My mom paid $3000NT for the three of us. She booked here specifically because they allowed pets as we were bringing the family min pin along.

They let us check in by 2:40PM and put us on the fifth floor, 501. The room had 2 full (they looked too small to be queen) beds to sleep 4. The building itself is old and not much has been done to update it. I found it curious that there was a flat screen LCD which worked great. The room seemed clean enough for us. I didn't like the fact that there was no shower curtain...despite being careful, I still got water on the floor. Towels were basic. Toiletries were basic as well...little packets of shampoo and hal-dollar sized rounds of soap. They did offer toothbrushes as well. Sleep quality-wise, the climate was comfortable but walls were paper-thin. Screaming baby at 12:45AM was loud and clear.

The hotel provides free breakfast at one of the restauants in the nearby shopping village, which was a Chinese style buffet, with congee and its usual accompaniments, along with fresh made soymilk. I do recall that they have toast and jam as well. Retail value is $100NT per person, and thus an added value.

Other factors that left an impresstion on me:
Pros: they have their on parking lot and are within walking distance to the shopping plaza; they did provide helpful info in going to hike up to see the sunrise, and did provide us with a wakeup call; our room gave us a nice view of the sunset which we enjoyed; there is free wifi on the first floor with a nice sitting area seperate from the lobby; there was a water dispenser on our floor (hot, warm, lukewarm) which was nice to make ramen with and for refilling water bottles before starting our hikes.

Cons: really wished they updated a little! The elevator smelled like trash all the time and since we were on the 5th floor, that was very unpleasant for us!

If I were to return to Alishan petless, I would consider staying somewhere else.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2011

We had a triple sharing room with 3 queen size beds. However, upon checking the bath tub, there was a crackline. Requested for change of room. Given another room also with 3 queen size beds. This time, the shower had no door with the toilet located in a narrow space. Also, the hotel does not provide shower soap, but instead tiny bars of soap. Heater is centrally controlled and will only be turned on when certain temperature is reached. Thus one had to pile on more clothings just in case the optimum temperature was not hit! This was not communicated to us clearly during our stay and we were freezing throughout the night!

Room Tip: Check all the facilities of the room. Ensure that all amenities were available.
