This is just a phenomenal hotel. It’s location is about as central as possible, next to the train station and main bus nexus. One can rely entirely on public transportation from this place, which is a real positive when weighing the premium hotel price. However, as Shangri-la pricing goes, this hotel is a steal, typically charging about half the rate... More

In my opinion, the best hotel in Tainan. Good food, excellent service. The pool and hotel facilities are very good, and the central location in Tainan is very convenient. Next time I will definitely stay longer.

This hotel matched all our expectations as a Shangri-La hotel. Bravo! Our family traveled as four people sharing two rooms and all the members agree this hotel is the best of our stays during our trip to Taipei, Taichung, Tainan, Tokyo and Sapporo.

The Shangri-La was a nice escape from travel and the hustle of Tainan. The location is convenient for the train station. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and the amenities (pool, gym, sauna, steam room, soaking pools) are very good. The buffet was great for breakfast, less so for dinner but still a wide variety.

Stayed at this hotel this week. Really enjoyed it. The hotel was well furnished, great food, and atmosphere. In the area, although there is a lot of industry, you will also find lots and lots of local shops and stores, in a busy town setting. I loved walking around looking at shops and negotiatin with staff. Well recommended.
