            One Of The Best Stay of My Life”

            Host, ambience and amenities

            As a frequent traveller, I've been staying in variety hotels and hostels before but there was never one that made such a great impact in my staying experience. My first arrival at Mei Jen House, greeted with warm welcome by the Host and she had the itinerary planned out for me during my stay @ Sun Moon Lake. The host, Mei Jen, is very passionate about her job as well as her minsu. She encouraged us to do alot of things which we did not plan at first but luckily we took her advise because everything turned out to be an unforgettable one. One episode was that we actually lost one of our tour package tickets along the way there and we were lost don't what to do. We consulted Mei Jen for help and she's the only host that I've encountered who was willing to go the extra miles to help us out for a solution. We are forever grateful for what she did for us. Room was really clean and neat, breakfast served was simple yet warming in the heart. If you're intending to explore Sun Moon Lake, this place is highly recommended for you. It might not be the 5 stars hotel you're looking for but definitely the 5 stars experience that Mei Jen's able to bring. One last thing to take note: please accept the offer from Mei Jen if she do mention to bring you to see the sunrise the next morning. It's going to be as early as 5am but trust me, it's all worth it.

            A Great Place”

            Mei Jen House was a great place. The rooms were not only clean, but also had fun murals. The day we arrived, we arrived very early...about four hours before normal check-in time early. They not only said they would hold our bags, but they hurried and made our room available. Then they helped us carry our bags to our room. Later, we decided we wanted to go out and see if there were any fireflies to see. I casually asked the front desk person where a good place to go was and she offered to drive us in her own personal vehicle later that night. She took us to a great little spot where we were able to see a few fireflies, even in the off season. There was also a lot of fun perks to the place: like breakfast and free postcards to send to family/friends. The front desk person was very friendly and helpful through our whole stay. Next time I go to Sun Moon Lake, I will be staying at Mei Jen House again. I recommend it!

            Sunrise tour, friendly staff, location

            Thankful that I book Mei Jen House. Initially, i was worried of the cleanliness and the location of this hotel since the price is cheap. However, MJ House is located very near the Shueishe Tourism Centre where most people would alight/board the public bus. Opposite the hotel is a 7,eleven so it's really convenient. It's also a walking distance to the pier. The staff is extremely friendly and she would organise sunrise tour for her guest. She even offer me tips on how to take nice sunrise shot! I've never regretted staying there! Anyway, do try the 阿榮邵族面 restaurant nearby. It serve traditional food with no MSG added. It's the best restaurant I had at Sun Moon Lake.

            Staff attitude, breakfast and location

            Mei Jen House is conveniently located just 100m from the shuishe tourist centre. Also the biggest plus point is the lady at the counter is super helpful and friendly in helping us out such as recommending nice food places and how to go about maximising our 1day stay at sun moon lake. She even provides a free sun rise tour but was unfortunately cancelled that morning due to rain. We were given an "Aladdin" inspired room and even had a glimpse of the lake from our window. However when night falls, we can hear footsteps of the occupants above and occassionally voices of other guests. The breakfast served is also great with taiwanese porridge, tea leaf egg as well as bread. Overall a great stay and would definitely recommend to everyone!

            Highly recommended. The owner of Mei Jen house is very sweet and helpful. There will be free tour to the lakeside to enjoy the sunrise daily. During firefly season (April-May), there will be daily trip to nearby park full of fireflies. She even bought us breakfast and brought us to the nearby hiking trail in her car =) There's also free postcards of sun moon lake available in the lobby, all those pictures were photographed by the owner. You can also get dslr tripods from her to shoot amazing night view of sun moon lake and fireflies.

Every morning, there is activity walking out to see the first sun rise and taking the picture. The owner who brings you to different place everyday is a professional in photography. I learnt many techniques from her. Wow! That's really nice. I can finish all my targets in Sun Moon Lake and back home happily. Thank for help from the owner of Mei Jen House. ^^)b

            Mei Jen is a really nice host. By staying at this place has definately made our trip to Sun Moon Lake more wonderful. Location is great, very near to pier and bus drop off point. She is patient to tell us all information we need to ask about Sun Moon Lake and recommended a few good eateries around the place. We followed her to watch sunrise and she is patient enough to wait for everyone to finish all photo taking before leading us back despite that we can go back on the same way on our ion. A big thank you to Mei Jen!!!

            I stayed at Mei Jen House for two nights in early January 2017 and I was quiet pleased with the service and cleanliness offered by the guesthouse. The guest house is strategically located at Yuchi town, next to almost all the facilities (restaurants, minimarkets, pier, etc) but at the same time very quiet: I didn't hear any noise from the street in my room. And the staff is very helpful. I'll definitely recommend this place to every one who wants to have a nice stay in the Sun Moon Lake.

            Convenient location, friendly owner, safe for female travellers

            This is my 2nd stay with Mei Jen House. The owner, Ms. Mei Zhen, is really friendly and she brings the guests for free sunrise tours in the morning. She's also an avid photographer. The rooms are simple and beautiful wall murals decorate the bedrooms. It's conveniently located on the main street in Sun Moon Lake, which is less than 5 minutes walk to the visitor's centre and bus terminal. Would recommend for those who don't mind the simplicity of back-to-basics.

            Good hosts, great value for money. ”

            My boyfriend and I were doing a road trip around Taiwan. When we arrived to Mei Jen house, I spoke to Mei Jens daughter who speaks some english. She gave us a card to get into the big car park behind for free - was very easy and convenient. The room was cute and cosy, and had everything you need. The keycard for running the electricity was a bit faulty, but eventually we managed to make it last so it didn't keep turning off. The sunrise tour is recommended, bare in mind it will be cancelled if it rains. We met Mei Jen at 430 am and walked about 10 minutes to the pier nearby. It was beautiful, even if it was a little cloudy. You spend about 45 minutes there- so you can go back to sleep afterwards! Breakfast was simple and had some western style dishes. I am vegetarian and I was able to eat toast and some pastries. I definitely recommend this hotel, as it has very good value for the money you pay.

            The location is great! It is just a few minutes walk from the tourist information centre and bus stop. Sui She Wharf is also just a few minutes walk. It is located in the main street with easy access to convenience stores, restaurants and souvenir shops. The place is clean and well maintained. We were even greeted by teddy bears in the common area as well as in the room. The room is spacious too. The owner is friendly and helpful. We were greeted with smiles and she gave us informative introduction of the town. We joined their free sunrise tour and it was great. Their breakfast was good too! We would highly recommend Mei Jen House to friends who are visiting Sun Moon Lake.

            Love my stay there ! ”

            Good location, very helpful and friendly owner, room is comfy!

            very very good. Mei Jen is super friendly and helpful. She will bring you to see amazing sunrise at 4.30 am everyday, and its really worth it, so Go!! the room is clean and good size, with hot water from the heater. toiletries and towels are all provided for.. there is no lift because its a house, so if u have big luggage, just treat it as an exercise of the day. bed is comfy, there is tv with good channels, and at night its quiet despite being in downtown. its walking distance to the lake, where the ferry terminal is, and there are many eateries nearby. i left my ipod there accidentally, and Mei Jen called me immediately and used the post to help to send it to Taipei! very honest and hunble guesthouse! two thumbs up! will go back again if one day ever back to SML!

            Fantastic and friendly owner

            The level of service was excellent, with the owner (Mei Jen) taking a free 4.15am walking tour every morning to enable a sunrise viewing of the amazing sun moon lake. The lovely Mei Jen even provided a spare tripod to help us take photos and then demonstrated the 'harry potter' photo with the lake in the background (you will have to ask her about this when you visit!).

            Value for money and good location..”

            Sunrise Tour, Friendly Staff, Very good location..

            We had a pleasant stay at Mei-Jen House.. when we reach the hotel (Mei-Jen) introduce us ways of touring around sun-moon lake.. she even help us to purchase the 50NT one-day ferry ride (Which is the most value for money ride, there are others around the area which is more expensive). What i really like about Mei-Jen house is that she will organise sun-rise viewing trip every morning.. Totally worth it if you like to see sun-rise.. for people intending to travel to sun-moon lake if time permits try to allocate at least 2 days for sight-seeing and tour.. *Do not forget to visit to try the Ah Ma Char Ye Dan (Tea Leaves Egg)* It is cheap & good..

            Staff, environment and room

            The location of Mei Jen House is very good, just 1-2 minutes walk from bus terminal. Owner of Mei Jen House is so friendly and will bring you to see sunrise every morning. Room decorations is totally awesome and the house is filled with teddy bears for photo-taking. Variety of breakfast is the same for all days though.

            Beyond Expectation!”

            Warm welcome, Good food and snack bar, Convenience near bus station

            Location is good, near Shueishi Visitor Center. Under Mei Jen House's roof, although she cannot speak English well and I cannot communicate Chinese, but I indeed can feel her sincerely and warm willing welcome, everything are perfect, especially breakfast, it's simple of local style, but they're all good taste! It's beyond expectation. If I have opportunity, surely that I will back Mei Jen House again.

            good location, friendly & helpful host”

            The location is very convenient, close to the pier. You can easily go to the pier for a boat trip or go cycling along the lake. We enjoyed a lot. The house is super clean with lot of pretty drawing on the wall. We lived in a 4 persons hello kitty room on the 3rd floor. Good scenery!! The host is very helpful and helped us to book the dinner buffet in a famous hotel nearby. Thank you Mei Jen. We enjoyed out 2 night stay a lot.

            We really appreciated Mei Jen and her daughter for their support and care. They concerned and tried their best to serve and answer all you questions. The hotel is located near bus station. The hotel is nice and clean. It's really valuable comparing with how much you spent for. We absolutely go back to Mei Jen House again.
