We had been at Alishan House, twice, 30+ years ago, and it was fun to return during our visit to Taiwan. We had a room in the ‘historic’ section and it was very nice. Loved the fruit, cookies, and tea that greeted us! Staff were...More

I am having a really hard time reviewing Alishan House.
The location is great, which is why I choosed it, and in my opinion the only reason they are still in business.
The good things:

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.
