Neighbourhood
East District/ Yongkang District
This district is suitable for settling down. The Tainan Train Station is situated in this district and the transport hub. Behind the train station stands the tallest building in Tainan. There are department stores and hotels surrounding the station. Furthermore, the National Cheng Kung University and its green area cover a vast area of land. The district, therefore, sends out an academic, yet relaxed atmosphere. The alleyways on Dasyue Road near the university are filled with restaurants and shops offering exotic cuisine. It is a quiet getaway in the hustle and bustle of the city. The Banyan Garden and the green area are a top choice for the public to have a walk after picnic. Many foreigners visit here every year. The Old Tainan Magistrate Residence is the historic monument that is the most well-preserved and at the same time the most luxurious during the Japanese rule. The Great East Gate on Dongmen Road is perfectly in sync with the modern busy traffic. The seed museum hidden in the alleyway in the East District is a utopia that is highly recommended. As for Yongkang District, it is the biggest satellite town in Tainan. Though it is modern and busy, it has stories to tell. For those who want to have a glimpse of the history of early Tainan’s development, visit here.

The hotel is located right next to Tainan train station, and a shopping mall. The service was exceptional. We got upgraded to top floor room with stunning city view. Gym was equipped with great equipment and a room for yoga and stretch. It got a swimming pool too. Will come back once in town. Ps., the breakfast buffet was shockingly bad for the price. Would not recommend.

Hotel's Favourite
Was initially worried about the weather as it was pouring daily the week prior to our arrival. Turnout the fear was unfounded. The weather was dreary with an occasion light drizzle but overall pleasant. The hotel is easily visible as we approached by train from Kaohsiung. We made a mistake of exiting from the front of the station which caused us some time as we had to walk down a flight of stairs and use the underpass to cross over to reach the hotel. We made it a point to exit from the back exit of the Tainan train where we just needed to cross a set of traffic lights to reach the hotel. Check in was speedy and we had a room on level 33. The unblocked view from the windows were great. We ended up spending much time lazing in the room and looking at the view outside. Occasionally, we got to see fighter planes landing at the nearby runway. The hotel provides complimentary shuttle service to some places of attraction. First shuttle starts at 11am and runs every two hours till 7pm. There is a then an 8.30pm shuttle that goes to the night market. Do note that this service is available daily except for Wednesday. The breakfast spread at level 10 cafe was scrumptious. Had a wonderful stay and will definitely choose to stay again on my next visit to Tainan. All the staff have been courteous, helpful and professional. Thank you.

Rooms are "empty", can use extra chairs/table. TV, drawers, mirrors, table top all all dirty with residual stains! These surfaces are also scratched. Breakfast presents many choices but quality really lacking. Some staff at breakfast also has poor attitude.

First time to visit this five star hotel in Tainan, the location is super convenient which is just next to the Tainan main station. The hotel staff was super friendly and I was impressed by their lovely service especially horizon club. The club lounge staff helped me with the questions of the traveling things in Tainan, as well as the food is awesome and really tasty especially the beef soup and the local fish congee. My room view was impressive and the pool is super nice as well, since it is a temperature controlled pool which is nice to swim in the winter time. Definitely will come back next time for my trip to Tainan, recommend to you all!

Very good location with all the infrastructure you would expect. Very friendly lady concierge which is very helpful. Rooms are nice and quiet. An ideal place to stay while in Tainan, also quite close to the train station.

Why would you want a tour? The fun is exploring by yourself. Hop on bus 77 in front of hotel to visit Anping or catch the Taiwan Tourist Shuttle bus in front of the train station and see more sites. The hotel desk will be able to help.
