We booked this hotel through booking.com and personally I think it is really good choice. The hotel is a bit far from Tainan Main station, however still walkable if you do not have luggage. Since we just arrived in the city and have a couple of luggages, we opt to take taxi which parked outside the main train station, and it was quite cheap, only TWD150– less than usd5 and we do not have any hassle to find a hotel location as the taxi drop us right at the hotel front door.

The hotel located right at the centre of the many temples and interesting sights. All the temples are within walking distant. Plenty of cheap local restaurants nearby in the afternoon (but a bit difficult to find restaurant at night time), and one famous Japanese shopping centre a couple block away.

The reception speak English well and very friendly and nice. He was very chatty and full of information, he gives free map of Tainan city and points to interesting sights to explore by foot and how to go to certain place by taxi.

We arrived at 11am and he gives the room straight away even though the reservation mention that the check in start at 3pm. I requested room with a view and our room has a beautiful temple view downstairs which is very pleasant to see.

The room itself quite spacious with twin bed, dresser, refrigerator, old television, and small cupboard (basically, everything we need to stay a night). The bathroom has bathtub and it seems most budget hotel in Taiwan do not have shower curtain in the bathroom so the whole floor get wet after shower. At least everything work well and it has hot and cold water. Wifi work well from the room and the whole building.

The hotel provide free mineral water and we just fill in our water bottle. In addition to this, it also provide free laundry service at the top floor with the detergent – so we do not have to buy anything.

There are a couple birds inside the cages at the top floor which make a lot of noise especially when they see people coming (when I did my washing at night time) and we entertain our self with the birds.

The room also has a hot water to make tea and coffee which provide freely.

Buffet breakfast serve at the lobby area and it has plenty of selection with traditional Chinese breakfast which is rice, noodles, vegetables, meat, mantau (steam white bread), etc. Breakfast taste pretty good and very filling and I love the stir fried toufu.

Plenty of people in the morning during breakfast time, however we still able to get table and we need to bring the dirty dishes our self. The staff at the breakfast room was friendly and helpful.

The room has different price during weekday and weekend. It cost usd 44 during weekday and usd 50 during weekend. We stayed two nights at this place very happy with it.

On the last day, we asked the reception to call taxi to go to main train station and the taxi come quickly and the staff help with our luggage to the taxi. Very good service. We will definitely come back to this hotel if we go back to Tainan city.
