Shin Kao Hotel
Ranked #23 of 70 Hotels in Chiayi
Reviewed 4 October 2013

We stayed for 4 nights ( Dec 29 - Jan 1, 2013). The building is quite old, the Auntie in the reception though not able to converse in english but very much accomodating. One night we were awaken coz the building is shaking so we went down, she said that it's normal in Chiayi to have light earthquake and assured us that its ok.

The hotel is just opposite the train station. U can take underpass exit 6.
It is 15 min walk to nite market where you can settle ur dinner and do some shopping there.
Do ask for extra towel if travel in 2 cuz it only provides 1 in bathroom.
Free wifi is provided

Plus pts: location (use the TRA underpass and exit at no. 6), price, and the recently renovated bathroom.

Minus pts: room is quite old, bed is pretty hard. If there's two of you, do bring extra bath towel - only 1 is provided. No hand soap is available in bathroom as well.

Overall, ok for the price and location if you are doing a one night stay. Don't expect fanciful stuff and you should be fine.

I was here for a night stay with my family before heading to Alishan. The place is old but it's cheap. It's ok for a short stay consider the amount of money you pay for. The hotel is just right at the entrance to the pedestrian underpass leading to Chiayi train station. It only takes 15 minutes walk to the famous Wen Hua night market.

Hotel is near to the Chiayi Train Station. You have to use the underpass and it is diagonally opposite the train station. You can see the hotel's banner when coming out of the underpass. There is a bookshop next to the hotel. The hotel is located in the heart of Chiayi. It is also walking distance to the Wanhua Night Market. Walk straight down towards the fountain and the night market is on the same side as the hotel. The free wifi and a computer on level 5 provided is excellent. The lady boss is very friendly and helpful.

The only thing great about this hotel is that it is very near the central train station, like right across the road. Other than that, everything is barest minimum in this place. The lady at the reception was also quite helpful to us.

Dont expect much from this hotel. The location is good as it was situated in the main road of ChiaYi Town. You will have access to all facilities like bus, taxi, 7-11 etc, foods, Mcdonald etc within walking distance. As the hotel, the lady was very nice and friendly and told us where to have the famous chicken rice and fish-head noodles. The hotel itself was a bit letting down as they only provide small tower (more like facial tower) to guest, air-con dated to 70s (old and not so clod air-con) waster pressure not good and not even hot water (more like warm water) in the bathroom.

Room Tip: If you just spend one night here and a cheaper choices, then you may choose this hotel.
