Nice hotel managed by Shangri-La group- a brand that can be trusted. The Horizon Club lounge is located on the 24th floor. Staff at the club lounge are professional, diligent and attentive. Special credits and thanks to the club lounge manager- Winnie Chen for her exemplary service. She is very helpful in any way she could. When we left for...

Stayed there one night after Chinese New Year. It is across from the old train station and right next to the University. Room we stayed in was really big with 2 full size beds and a sitting area with TV, desk. Bathroom was big with bidet, bathtub. The lounge on the 24th floor was definitely worth the upgrade. It served...

The staff were helpful, from checking in to the arrangement of a chartered taxi for us. Their ability to communicate in English, made things a lot easier. The room was spacious and well equipped. Unfortunately, we did not have sufficient time to explore further.

We stayed here for three nights after Chinese New Year. Even though generally it is a nice hotel with some nice vews, our stay started with a disappointment: unlike most 5-star hotels in Taiwan, they do not have valet parking. Therefore, we first had to park our rental car in the car park underneath the hotel which was anything but...

Just a quick overnight stay in this hotel and overall experience is very good but wouldn't earn my 5 stars rating. Check in considered long for an international hotel as only 2 staff were at the counter but then again it doesn't really matter because despite at almost 5:15 pm, the rooms are not available. I have to wait for...

We stayed 3 nights in an Horizon Club Superior King Room. We only chose Horizon Club because they were the only double rooms available but it is well worth the price (SGD280 per night). The room is large and so is the bathroom with everything in very good condition. Very comfortable bed and good aircon. Best is the breakfast which...

The hotel is probably the tallest building around that area. It's located at the back of the main railway station in Tainan, very easy to find. There's a department store just right next door, which opened until 9:00pm, as I remembered. There are also a few more shops, tea shops, restaurants...etc. near by. Very convenient location! The restaurant in the...

I had a large and comfortable room with views across the city. The hotel is next to the train station, but you have to walk back under the train station to get to see the sights in the old town.

Went to Tainan to experience a different side of Taiwan (usually I just stay in Taipei during my trips). Stayed at the Shangri-La, which is very convenient, as it is located right across the road from the train station. The room was big (in some ways, too big) but very comfortable. The room was a bit dirty and dated (the...
