One of the best hotels I stayed while visiting Taiwan. Very convenient located within Tainan city, and there’s a big shopping center right next door for quick shopping need. Staffs are very friendly, overall hotel deco is luxurious, and it’s got a very beautiful pool. However, gym is very small with only couple exercise machine available.
The room itself is very clean, luxurious, and comfortable with very modern Asian style deco. The restroom is equipped with automatic toilet seat washer, big tub, and very nice shower head. I would rate the room itself five stars except that I do not like the window blinds which do not completely block out the sunlight early in the morning, and I will just woke up with sunlight peek into the room when sunrise (good for early raiser, but not me.)
I also had chance to dine in at breakfast buffet, however, kind of disappoint with variety of food offered at buffet for a five star hotel. Also, there’s no napkin placed on the table and nowhere to be found within buffet area, has to ask the waiter for it.
Overall, great hotel and will definitely go back to stay next time if I have chance to go to Tainan again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located in Tainan’s Central West District, the hotel is an international five-star business and leisure hotel under the FIH Regent Group. Shinkong Mitsukoshi Department Store and Shinkong’s Small Ximen Shopping District are situated nearby, while downtown historic sites are within walking distance, boasting the rich historic collections, diverse cultural perspectives and comprehensive business functions. The hotel is a 30-minute car ride away from the Tainan High Speed Rail Station and the Tainan Science Park; its convenient transportation access offers the environment and function for both business and leisurely vacations. As Taiwan’s first city, Tainan’s urban development was heavily influenced by the historical artifacts and culture, which evolved with the city over time. Imagine the literary atmosphere that traversed the streets a century ago, where poems were ceaselessly recited over days and nights. Our hotel employed such Confucian philosophical imageries as a part of the design concept, believing in the idea of being “modern yet everlasting.” The interior design showcases the blend of the East and West along with thoughtful fusion of the classic and modern sensibilities. Utilizing the Minnan style architectural elements to decorate the space, along with a collection of old books in the reading room; meanwhile, the drum artifacts aligned on the two sides of the lobby echos the respect towards the ceremonial music’s heritage from over hundreds and thousands of years ago. As one enters the hotel, thoughtful details abound, expressing the warm yet understated attitude of the creative art and culture that are hidden within. The hotel building houses 256 guest rooms, a 6-meter high ceiling multi-functional banquet room, which can host wedding banquets for a hundred tables with pillarless space as well as several multi-functional meeting space. Extending the Group’s Food & Beverage advantages, the hotel boasts restaurants with exquisite Chinese and Western cuisine, using large amounts of local food ingredients, to satisfy your desire for a local, gourmet and visually stunning dining experience. On the fourth floor, the leisure facilities include outdoor swimming pool with skyview, gym and an interactive playroom for children designed to create a perfect and impeccable business and vacation environment. Adhering to the brand philosophy of prospering and growing with the local area, the hotel brings in the gentle and humble historical ambience and the ancient academy culture to the traveler’s living space. Using “recreating the literary culture, passing down the creative arts” as its mission, the hotel inherits Tainan’s pride and spirit as the former academic capital. It also demonstrates its gratitude towards the bygone era, in the hope to jointly cultivate the culture in this new era, offering travelers a bountiful and satisfying hotel stay experience! ... more less
