Recent guest reviews

Very good breakfast. Helpful staff. Walking distance to sights and to the university. 3 minutes on foot to train station

This hotel is new and clean. It's next to the train station. Its convenient location makes this hotel a good stay place to explore the city.

The staff is very friendly and greets you warmly the minute you arrive at the front door. There is a department store attached via a door from the lobby. They have a food court downstairs - including McDonalds, and a small grocery store with beer, wine and alcolol and ice if you want. Not to mention the snacks. On the 4th or 5th floor there are two restaurants providing an alternative to hotel food. The hotel is right across from the train station which makes it a very convenient location.

The hotel located at a perfect location which is closed to the train station and National CK University. While it is the highest building at that area, It also has a great view of Tainan City. Well, I might highly suggest that when you visit Tainan you should try every delicious snacks you can find. However, services and food are also wonderful in this hotel. If you are lazy or meet a raining day, stay a day in the hotel is a relaxed choice, too.

Awsome stay with great check in, above and beyond expectations.

We took the HSRT from Taipei to Tainan. The free shuttle took us right to the Tainan main rail station which is right across from the hotel. The hotel itself was very comfortable and welcoming. The lobby staff was always making sure you are served. The buffet breakfast was great. The outdoor pool was very relaxing after a whole day of walking around. For the price, compared to the Taipei location, this is a great choice.

Luxurious hotel next to the University in Tainan. The fitness center had all of the right equipment such as free weights, machines, yoga mats, treadmills, and so on. The rooms are spacious and very modern and chic. The free buffet breakfast that is included with your room is fabulous as well. The serivce is also of the wall. If you like being pampered and treated like a rock star stay at this hotel!

The Shangri-la Hotel was the best hotel we've ever stayed in. We spent a night in Tainan to visit my fiance's 93 year old grandfather who lives there. We invited him to come with us to the hotel for dinner. The experience was fantastic. Not only was the prices very reasonable the service was excellent. We've never seen our grandfather eat so much in one sitting! Service staff was particularly skilled at speaking both Mandarin and English which is a surprise (The service staff's english was better than some of the service staff we've seen in even Hong Kong!). The most amazing thing was grandfather left a message for us to call us back in Mandarin. We received notice in English because they remembered we didn't really speak the language! All this on top of the fact that the rooms were exquisite, the bathrooms were really nice and the swimming area was excellent. Our stay included a buffet breakfast which exceeded even the best buffet breakfasts we've tried in Vegas(where my fiance lives) in terms of selection (Asian and North American dishes) and quality(that means the Bellagio and Planet Hollywood). We were really delighted with this hotel especially with the service.

This is probably the top hotel in Tainan. From the beginning, the service was exceptional. Very friendly staff greeted us the whole way. Check-in was a breeze, we were in our 32 floor rooms within minutes of walking in the hotels. The room itself was perfect, equipped with a flat screen and a large king size made us not want to leave after a brief three day stay. Almost be sure to check out the restaurant on the top floor for an amazing view
