Rundown North-Korean youth hotel with health issues Sep 09, 2011
N23°30'57.42" E120°48'52.25" We stayed in August 2011 for two nights in room 3561 and 2351. We were completely surprised when we read the announcement that the rooms had only hot water between 5pm and 12pm. The last time we had this experience was in a youth hostel in East Berlin before the fall of the wall. So, no morning showers for us. But on closer inspection the hotel used only the latest wing and that wing was far beyond the point of refurbishment. Lot of things broken, missing, dirty and patched-up. No shower curtain. Maintenance clearly is non-existing. The only compliment is for the Wi-Fi reception. We know that Taiwanese like firm beds, but the beds in this hotel are rock hard. The mattress is not filled with wood but with concrete.

The restaurant downstairs is a miserable place, run by unskilled schoolgirls. Only loud tour groups form Mainland China like it. The hot pot failed in every sense but the steamed trout was surprising good. You have to cleanup your own table and throw leftovers in a open bin beside the exit. Hygiene wasn’t on the agenda and cockroaches crawled over our table during breakfast. Breakfast is a big word for what they serve. The next morning we failed to appear in the restaurant for breakfast and escaped to the 7-eleven at the parking lot. Stay away from this hotel and stay in the new Alishan House hotel.
