We booked this hotel because there wasn't anything else available when we got into Taitung. I wish we had booked earlier because our experience was not wonderful.
Cons: For the price, we just expected a lot more. The TV in our room had crazy feedback. The wifi was patchy. We went to the spa and were told that we had to buy a bathing cap to enter (nothing crazy priced but still) and that the onsen cost extra. When you pay $170 - you expect that stuff to be free especially since in Japan it is free.
The hotel is actually a pretty good distance out of Taitung itself so either rent bikes or expect to have money on hand for taxis. It makes it difficult to really enjoy the atmosphere of the city or go out for a quick bite. We were there when it was pouring and ended up having to take a taxi multiple times to get anywhere. It's also not remotely close to the train station and we weren't told there was a shuttle.
Pros: The room is huge and the bathroom is clean. A few of the receptionists speak English. The breakfast was decent and had a few surprises for food.More
