I stayed here for three nights while on business in Tainan. I had a very good stay. The staff at the registration desk during check-in and check-out were particularly pleasant. My room was very spacious and included a mini-bar, safe, kettle, and complimentary wifi. The bathroom was particularly spacious. I like bathrooms that have a shower unit that is separate...

We wanted a central hotel and this fitted the bill. It is a high rise building next to a large department store and across the road from a university campus. Reception in the large lobby was welcoming and efficient. Our room was large and very well equipped with a large bathroom with many toiletries. It was spotlessly clean. We got...

We enjoyed our stay at Shangri-La in Tainan very much. We booked a horizon club room which was well worth the extra spend: the additional (more quite) breakfast option, the happy hour (with drinks, small bites - everyday different ones) and the separate service desk. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and professional. Our room was super clean, very...

This hotel isn't as good as the average shangri la; it is a little dated. However, the staff are really lovely and the breakfast was excellent. They also very kindly upgraded us to a palatial suite as we were on our honeymoon. The location is also good for exploring the city.

Great and convenient location! Take a high-speed rail to Tainan HSR station, hop onto the Taiwan Rail to Tainan station with just NT$20 per pax (it will cost NT$420 if you take the cab) and a 2-min walk to the hotel. A bit inconvenient for those with big luggage as there is no escalator at the train station. Once you...

Staying in East District/ Yongkang District

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
