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.
