“Run-down hotel in an unexciting location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2012

This hotel is located in an area within Taitung call Zhiben. The hotel looks old and definitely requires refurbishing. However, the hotel management might not be willing to do so given a few observations - (1) we saw quite a number of tour groups during our one-night stop over, mostly mainland travelers; (2) the surrounding hotels do not look much better; (3) the surrounding area does not look like there's much to offer. While there's a hotspring offered by the hotel, it is physically located outside the main hotel building in the open air. It's structured like a small- scale swim pool - looks rather unattractive compared. Also, t was drizzling when we reached and so we didn't manage to use the hot spring pool.

Other than the limited services offered by the hotel, there's also nothing much outside the hotel - a seven eleven outlet plus a couple of small scale mom-&-pop shop within a 200-300m walking distance.

Overall, this place/hotel can only be a one-night stop over I'd say.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2011

N22°41'36.59" E121°0'48.61" We stayed in room 816 for one night in August 2011. The staff was very nice and helpful. One spoke English. The hotel has a clean and decent hot spring with pool between the hotel and the 7-eleven on the public road. Opens from 3pm till 11pm, so no early dip. The room itself has two queen-size beds, a perfect view at the river and internet by UTP-cable. Airco worked fine.

The hotel itself is aging and the standard of cleanliness is poor. Nothing dirty but clean is something else. At night, load of tour busses dump their passengers in the hotel and it becomes hectic with Karaoke singing. With only hotels and a 7-eleven nearby, the only diner option was the hotel restaurant with one set menu: hot pot. Despite our doubts, the hot pot was good and bulky, although we don’t like the absent of flavour in aboriginal food.
