It is a 4 stars or higher hotel with spa in the room. The set up of the room is very high class.
The room is big with attaching bath room and spa also big. It is new and luxury. If you like to enjoy a good and relaxing spa, this is very well suite to you, the decoration of lights and the material are of the higher class with the audio visual facilities.
I stayed for 4 nights and I must say that the hotel is the best for the price in all Taipei, it is well located 2 minutes walk to the subway and bus stop just in front a lot of places to eat just minutes away and even a market for the day and a small night market for the night. They speak english also and the breakfast in included and adecuate.
There is a con although most of the rooms have no windows at all so can feel some kind of claustrophobia, but this is not my case, and i enjoyed the stay.
totally enjoyed my stay here.
The free bus from the Taiwan bullet train stops across the street from this hotel.
It is next to the most modern shopping center of Tainan, has a beautiful gym, pool, and variety of jacuzzi, as wells as men & women only saunas and hot tubs.
The room is large, beautiful, clean, and befitting of a 5-star hotel. The price is fair and the cost of hotel services (spa massage, etc.) is reasonable.
The spa appointments are full but I managed to get one, and took advantage of the special (stone massage) and it was wonderful.
beautiful gym/pool/spa !!! gotta see and use it.
We paid $3800 for one 4ppl-room but they upgrade us to two 2ppl-room so they can give the room to other bigger group. Wifi is in lobby only.

My stay in Lu Shan Garden Resort was the most unforgettable experience I had in Taiwan. The room I stayed in is labelled as Exquisite. See attached pictures and judged by yourselves.
1. The bed - you can feel the spring and made my sleep most uncomfortable.
2. The power points are behind the TV. TV reception is poor due to the geography of the area.
3. If you intend to eat in the hotel, do place your order in advance. Otherwise you will have to go hungry if you cannot go out when it is raining.
4. You need to let the tap runs for a few minutes to get hot spring water to take a bath. Anyway,
I took my bath at the Hot Spring area before dinner time. Did not bathe in the morning as the bathroom puts me off.
5. Breakfast was congee/rice. The rest of the breakfast consisted of side dishes which came in a set per room basis. It is not laid out buffet style.
The room is very rundown. For hot/cold water, you need to take it from a dispenser down the hall way.
Hot spring bath.
I was very pleased with the reception given to me by Mr. Juan Lin. He is the only one who could speak very good English and I appreciate the attention he has given to me from the time I booked the hotel till I took my leave from the hotel.
The hotel is situated by the beach facing the Pacific Ocean. The room I stayed in is very nice and clean. As for breakfast it is the usual congee, plain dumplings, congee side dishes , coffee, fresh milk, fruits. bread, butter and jam.
I would certainly recommend travellers who enjoy the sea to stay here. The hotel is within walking distance of Chihsingtan Beach. The hotel also provides bicycle for you to ride along the bicycle paths along the beach front. Unfortunately, I was deprived the opportunity to ride the bicycle as it was raining when I was there. And the bicycle keeper will not allow his bicycles to be used in the rain to maintain the life span of the bicycles from rust. Understandable.
Great view of the Pacific Ocean.
The hotel will arrange for pickup at the Hualien train station upon your arrival. You need to inform them at least 2 days in advance about your date of arrival and the estimated time of arrival at the train station.
The hotel is quite a distance from the city centre and your cab fares to the city shopping area might cost you NT350 to/fro if arranged by the hotel. You might pay more if you call the taxi yourself. There is a restaurant nearby but do not expect alot from it.
The hotel is a few minutes walk from the Taipei Main Station. If you take the Kuo Kuang bus from the Taoyuan Terminal 2 Airport or the Terminal 1 you will be dropped off at TMS and will be able to walk to the hotel.
The hotel is located at Hwaining St. to the right of Shin Kong Mitsukoshi Dept. Store which is along
Chung Hsiao W Rd. As you exit from TMS to Chung Hsiao W Rd. walk to the right. Cross over to the Dept. Store and cross the road to the right. The hotel is at the next road to the left.
The lobby staff are friendly and so are the other staff. You need to book early to avoid disappointed. This hotel is very popular.
The rooms are clean though you might face difficulty in getting an extra plug point for your laptop or charging your handphone. I used the bathroom power point to charge my handphone.
The breakfast mainly consist of congee, sides for congee, coffee, bread, butter, jam, drinking water and eggs.
For lunch you can walk to the Shin Kong Dept. store basement which have a good variety of food sold or you can go over to TMS a floor above the TRA ticketting counter where there is a big food court.
Fantastic hotel. Within walking distance to railway, MRT, bus stations, food outlets, Nanhua Rd & Liuhe Night markets. Room and bathroom very clean, comfortable. Internet facilities good. Front office staff friendly and helpful. Sofar the best hotel compared to Taipei and Hualien hotels. Extended 2 nights stay.
Friendly and Helpful front office personnel and great Location.
I stayed at the Shangri La Hotel in Tainan for a week.
The hotel is attached to a shopping mall and close to the train station.
My only problem with the hotel was that the hotel was on the other side of the railway station and that you have to walk through a pedestration subway system and a main road to get to the hotel.
Their are plenty of taxi's availble form the station if you wish to take one to the hotel.
The pedestration subway is straight in front of the station, the tourist infromation centre is immediately on the right hand side as you walk out of the platform gates, its a big yellow building, which somehow I did not see when I first arrived at the station.
The hotel has amazing facilities sauna and a pool.
They have single sex facilties both with a whirlpool and a sauna.
If you are going to use to whirpool you have to be completly naked as they dont allow people to wear their swim wear.
In the mens changing room they have razor blades, toothbrushes, combs, shaving cream and after shaving cream, all free to use.
My hotel room was a massive room with a double bed, wide tv and a sofa.
You can turn a knob on the wall in the bathroom and you can hear the tv while you are on either the toilet or in the shower.
Fresh fruit is provided for you each day, banana, apple and an orange.
I stayed at the River View Hotel in February 2011.
The River Veiw Hotel in Taipei is a basic hotel close to a mayor highway.
The breakfast room is on the top floor of the hotel looking over the river, but the view is not a good one as their are allot of roads crossing the river and a huge billboard to the side of the hotel.
The orange juice was watered down, they provided both chinese and western breakfasts.
The staff were friendly and helpfull.
The hotel was close to Taipei city centre, it was a 10 mintunte walk to nearest MRT station. Through walking the last couple of miles to the hotel from the station the streets were empty.
It also seems to me that different rooms of the hotel have different TV stations. As I stayed for a week before moving down to Tatian and then stayed one day before I flew back to London and the second time I stayed I had more cable channels including the BBC world service.
My new home is near the Zhongli Station. Although it is not a hotel, it's thirty minutes from Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (IATA: TPE, ICAO: RCTP) (traditional Chinese: 臺灣桃園國際機場 or traditional Chinese: 台灣桃園國際機場) by car. The amount you have to pay is NT$270 per night one room or free. Is the accommodation free of charge? Yes,it is if you can promise me that you will provide me free accommodation when we travel to your country.
