Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Poor customer service! You find no smile on any staff’s face. We asked for one hour delay check out (latter on negotiated to 20 minutes) due to our other engagement, but were rejected. The lady insists any delay would incur extra charge. The other thing is, in earlier phone conversation, we were assured they provide foreign currency exchange service without minimum amount limit. But when we got there asking to change $30 to local money, they said only $100 or more can be accepted, then guided us to try finding a bank. What a disappointment!

We stayed here 4 nights. The hotel is just across the from Jiantan MRT so easy to get around. Also outside the MRT are bus stops to National Palace Museum and Yangmingshan amongst other places. It’s a 5 mins walk to Shilin night market offering endless reasonably priced very tasty food options. We ate there every night. The room and facilities were great but very techno. Fancy electric loo and all! The only problem is trying to switch all the lights and switches off to get peace to go to sleep. Everything is electronic and fancy!! The only other thing to be aware of is breakfast is a bit mad for a westerner. It’s very high quality but nothing plain or simple. If you’re hoping for a piece of toast or yoghurt and fruit...you’re out of luck! I attach a photo of the menu so you’re forwarned.

Found the hotel via tripadvisor and we have been overwhelmed by the great service. Friendly, smiling staff members no matter when we met the staff. Lovely - yet different breakfast. Lovely little menu and you get introduced to very tasty breakfast. The room is stunning and modern with all the great items needed to make the stay an unforgettable experience (massage chair, lovely spa, free bar and lovely options for tea and coffee. Great location a bit away from the central vibe however the train station is across the road. Warmly recommend this place!

I stayed at mountain room booked through agoda stating room size is 46sq meter. The room size is about 30sq meter only which is much smaller as stated in their website. Checked with the hotel and they said it is 44sq meter. Disappointed with their reply and did not correct the room size at all.

A clean and modern hotel. Very well located near the Shilin marketplace. Great bed , shower, and soaker tub. My only criticism is the breakfast menu which had a very limited menu. Overall service was very good.

Read reviews before I booked this hotel. All very positive. Do not get me wrong the hotel itself is top notch hotel with a few not so top notch cons. My Pros and Cons Pros 1. Brand new hotel with a high tech room facility 2. Great mini bar, bathroom amenities such as this high tech bath with telly, tea and coffee making facility all free and topped up daily. Free water, free soft drinks and cakes. 3. Genuinely friendly staff with attention to details. They will try their hardest to help you. 4. Amazing location just off to the jiantan MRT and 3 mins to The infamous shilin Night market. Cons and my suggestion to the management. 1. Set menu breakfast did not work it was 330 TWD plus 10% service. If you have to pay for it. I included breakfast with extra costs when I booked the hotel. All foods lukewarm with no taste, this watery orange juice is served in a mug I have no idea how much ice and water they mixed with. Fresh orange juice that say, I am not so sure about that. Coffee was also watery from this button pressed coffee machine and coffee tasted like the coffee bean was stored in there for 2 years with no coffee flavour at all. Creamy Mushroom soup tasted like it was made from this powder. No toast no jams. Portion was less than adequate. All served in this bling bling chinaware that was about it. If you want that you go ahead 2. Swimming pool. The staff said someone was allergic to the water blah blah blah, which I do not believe that was the case. It has been going on for sometime the hotel has not managed to resolve the issue to open the swimming pool. Swimming pool was there with water but closed. I was informed that the neighbors complained that they do not want to see half naked people around this was not from 100% legitimate source I have to say. If that was the case then you guys have to sort it out maybe you can build a fence or something. The hotel has not taken any actions to resolve this. 3. Room was smaller than what the picture and the details of the room said when I booked. 3. No restaurants and bars were operating maybe they could not compete with local restaurants and bars which are 10 times cheaper and tastier. Other than those cons I am having a great time I have 4 more days to go but I am scared to have a breakfast because I know what I am going to get tomorrow morning. Yes I am still staying here even as I write this review. To the management I understand that you want to minimise the food waste and reduce the cost of providing breakfast but “NOT THIS WAY” it was the most inadequate breakfast I ever had. It is because of this decision, your staff are suffering and get the negative response from the customers. You have a choice to improve this or ignore. The decision is yours but remember in the long term you are not going to save that much when you start losing the customers.

The service from the staff was excellent and the rooms were superb. All very new and shiny with great WiFi shower and bed. Their bar and restaurant doesn’t appear to work in the evening - only for breakfast and coffee. The location is also superb being just across the street from the metro station (4 stops to the main station) and 2-3 mins walk from Shilin Night Market which is really great fun although super busy. There are a couple of good bars close by one in the market and the Salon bar on the main road on the west side. I also recommend the Viet Place restaurant. Overall I highly recommend the Tango and I’ll be using it again for future trips.

Stayed 3Ns in a mini suite with washer. Overall recommended for new room and convenient location. Note though the property face the train track, so there are noise, but tolerable even though I’m a light sleeper. Likes - new and clean room, and hotel’s decor is aesthetically pleasing - train station beside it, and just ~30mins drive (light traffic) to Taoyuan airport - 3mins walk to the famous Taipei night market - mini suite has a washer and is tucked in a quiet corner - front desk as good as any five star chain - still happy to serve breakfast after the stated time I would rate 5 if not for these... - water pressure of shower not adjustable; felt water wasting - house keeper kept all lights on when I return the 2nd night, kept all lights off and threw the key card on the floor the 3rd night (that is rude)

I have always been a fan of the Tango hotel chain for my vacation to Taiwan and again this time, Tango Jian Tan never fail to exceed my expectation. The hotel room is really new and all the amenities provided in the room are just great for a relaxing vacation. What I love most is the jacuzzi bathtub and massage chair! The staff are always friendly and have been great at helping us with cab booking etc. The hotel is also walking distance to Jian Tan station and Shilin night market so getting around is not an issue. If you are looking for a quiet, nice and cosy hotel to stay, this is the hotel to definitely look out for.

New hotel, very nice and clean rooms, AMAZING-ly comfortable bed, modern amenities. I very much enjoyed the espresso machine, tea selection, and complimentary pineapple cake (which was the best i've had in Taiwan and i wish i figured out which brand it was so i could buy lots of it to bring home). For some reason, the AC was not working properly on my first night but it got fixed. The staff were extremely helpful. Mountain view rooms are nice but a light sleeper might hear some train noise as the hotel is right next to Jiantan station, but considering how comfortable the beds are, it probably would not be an issue. I would recommend this hotel.
