"Location is very good and very close to bus station and boat harbor. There is also many shops and restauraants. Hotel gave us a coffee coupon. Inside room has big hot spring bathtub and it is wonderful. Hotel has morning climbing free event and can enjoy nice view of Sun moon lake and tea plant. I heard sometimes we can see mountain monkey. Workers are very kind and professional, One worker can speak Korean and we had a nice chat with her. Outside swimming pool is very nice and outside hot spring side. Morning buffet is also good to enjoy Taiwan food. I already booked a room on 12/14 to visit this hotel and moon lake hotel again."

"It is highly recommended to book a lake view room during your stay in Sun Moon Lake. It is especially calm & relaxing during the night. I am not sure about other hotel, but all rooms at this hotel will have their balcony light off automatically at 10pm, should be for visitor to better enjoy the calmness of the lake? Not sure about that though. Another plus point is that the hotel provide several in-house games/activities such as basketball machine, billiard, Ice-hockey table, X-box & Wii player. Personally, I love the breakfast served! Wide variety with a mixed of Chinese & Western style. However, the location is not the best among hotel in Sun Moon Lake. We have to take a five min shuttle bus to the "central" of Sun moon lake where all the local eateries and public transport are located at. Alternatively, you can walk which take round 15-20 min. "

" This hotel is very close to the pier that is the starter point of our journey in sun moon lake. The staffs are good in English and very helpful during the trip and after we check out. We forget the jacket in the room and request them to send us back to the hotel in Taipei and they do it for us. That's a very appreciated service. Highly recommend. By the way, if your group have an elderly person, I recommend asking about the bathroom first because they have quite a high bathtub that may cause of falling."

"We took a bullet train from Taipei to an overnight stay at Taichung. Not much to do there but the night market was great. It took 11/2 hours by taxi to sun Moon Lake. It costs $200twn. Sun Moon Lake is a beautiful place matched by a gorgeous hotel. Unfortunately I only booked for one night. We wished that we could stay longer. "

"The hostel is quite a distance from where the coaches drop off but the direction is clear and the signboard is visible. The owner is very friendly and welcoming when I arrived at the hostel. He made a very detailed explanation of Sun Moon Lake and briefly plans out your itinerary gauging from your days of stay. This is useful for travellers who do not have a itinerary planned out. He also points out several must-go and must-eat places for my reference. You can also buy the boat tour tickets from him as it is much cheaper compared to those sold outside. I was lucky that it was the firefly season when I went and he gathered the travellers, arranged with the organiser for the transport to the destination. It was very kind of him and made my night when I get to experience the view of thousands and thousands of firefly. The room is very clean with nice beds and sheets. The toilet was also very clean. I got to talk to several of the other travellers sharing the same dorm and it was a good experience. I will definitely come back to this hostel the next time I visit Sun Moon Lake alone, the owner was definitely the nicer man I met during my trip."

"I really liked the look and feel of the hostel. Basically 2 rooms per floor, one opposite the other (non-connecting). Room view of lake was nice to have, bathroom was great, albeit dim. In-room wifi worked well. Reception got me a ride to Alishan via taxi at fixed cost. Overall, not the best place to stay in Sun Moon Lake as it is on the quieter side of the lake but the hostel really makes up for it. Loved the place."

"When I book this hotel I do not know much abot it, the picture represented it well, I chose it for value. When I arrived at he Sun moon lake, I feels disappointed that it was so far away from the bus station, It is located in another area across the lake, a lady officer suggest to take the boat across the lake and I did, it was a painfull walk from the baus station to the harbour, take the boat across, arrive at Itathao harbour, then another painful walk along ascending road to the Hotel. In fact I should not go this way, the best to do is to use the local bus from the bus station after arriving at SunMoon Lake, and the local bus will bring you just next to this hotel, within only 2 min walk on a plain road. Itathao is the name of the tourist area across the lake, this is a very nice area best for travellers, and there is a night market within the area, not so crowded, so very suitable foe a nice and relax stay. Near to the beach, and and path way to many area of interest, food market, cable car station, and the harbour. Near bus service to scenic spots and the lake itself. the Itathao hotel is recommended to budget travellers to enjoy. I suggest to include an intro to Itathao, and a "how to get there". "
