Review: Hotel Tainan

This is the third post in a series about the hotels in which we stayed while traveling in Taiwan.

Hotel Tainan was our third hotel in Taiwan, located in Tainan near the train station. We stayed there for two nights at a rate of about $75/night. It was not the newest or fanciest hotel in Tainan (I think that’s the Tayih Landis Hotel where we had dinner one night). However, it is a great value for the price. I would compare this hotel to an older Marriott or perhaps an upscale Holiday Inn with a doorman and bellboys. The least appealing part of our stay was the view from our room, which was an old, possibly-abandoned building across the street.

Pros:

  • Good breakfast buffet, offering some Western options
  • Easy to find a taxi; helpful doormen and lobby staff
  • Reasonable rates
  • Free wired Internet access

Cons:

  • Small room, even smaller bathroom
  • Location not as convenient for sightseeing or shopping
  • Warm room: we lowered the thermostat, but the room stayed warm at about 25 degrees Celsius (about 77 degrees Fahrenheit)

If we returned to Tainan I would compare the rates of the Hotel Tainan to the Tayih Landis Hotel. The Tayih Landis Hotel was closer to some stores where we enjoyed shopping, and is the hotel where we had our special dinner before our big day at St. Lucy’s.

    I love reading about your hotels! It is so neat to relive Taiwan! It is definitely a place we would love to return to one day when Po-Chun is old enough to soak it all up!
