Our stay was long - four nights - by local standards, when most visitors stay one or at the most two. It is the best in the Alishan district. We stayed in the Modern Wing where the rooms are a bit bigger and more modern....More
Excellent view, you can see the amazing view of the "sea of cloud" at the roof top balcony of the hotel. Breakfast and dinner are provide, with good quality of food. Staff is friendly. We stayed in the historic parts of the hotel, in which...More
Location is perfect! Beautiful areas around the hotel to relax and enjoy the scenery. The hotel includes breakfast and dinner buffets which helps when considering the price but each buffet could be described as fine. Nothing great. The rooms were comfortable and the staff were...More
If I have to recommend a hotel to my foreign friends,
Alishan House must be in my Top 3.
Comfortable bed & pillow. Impressive service.
Great hotel and service on Alishan mountain. Buffet breakfast and dinner included in room charges. Very convenient to talk strolls on all the trails on Alishan. We went during cherry blossom and the trees were all around the hotel. We had a nice and enjoyable...More

You can watch the sunset from the roof top of the hotel. It is quite impressive. To see the run rise, you need to take a train to Zhushan, there is a viewing platform and it is the best place for sun rise. The train ride is about 30 minutes. If you join the hotel's program, wake up call is around 4 AM and the hotel shuttle bus will take you to the train station and use the train ticket (provided by the hotel) to ride the train to Zhushan station (last stop). Many visitors stay at the train station area to view sun rise. To see the best view, you need to walk additional 10 or 15 minutes to a viewing platform. After the sun rise, my recommendation is to hike back to the hotel (instead of ride the train). The scenery is worthwhile. Alishan house is the best place to stay while you visit Mt. Alishan. It has many walkways to various attractions inside the park and allow you to explore the forest, giant trees, flowers and plants, ponds, temples, etc.
My recommendation is to stay two nights since it is better to leave the mountain area before noon to avoid the dense fog in the afternoon along the mountain road to Chiayi. This will give you enough time to see all attractions.
Hi - we viewed the sea of clouds from the train station rather than from the observation deck of the hotel. for the best sunrise, you will have to take train from train station to another location to see. definitely highly... More
