Helpful and friendly staff”

First and foremost I must thank the friendly counter staff who helped me with all my travel queries during my 5-day stay with this hotel. Location is perfect for walking around the heritage sites in Tainan city. My room was quiet and was facing a beautiful traditional courtyard clan house. Also as I left a T-shirt in the hotel, the hotel immediately mailed it back to Singapore without charging a single cent although I insisted. This is a very homely hotel and I am sure you will find this suitable for a solo or family vacation stay.

The Famous Hotel is in a great location. It's about a 20 minute walk to the train station, and has loads of options for dining around it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, with plenty of vegetarian options. As others have mentioned, the hotel is old, but it has everything you need, and is very comfortable, so this should not deter you from staying here. We would stay at Famous Hotel again if we return to Tainan.

Location is really in the heart of tourists attraction. Easy to walk around freely with friendly locals. Easy to get busses to go places to visit. Only the breakfast wasn't my type even for most people. Very basic food, what you pay what u get. Actually I add 2 more days after my bookings because Tainan got many places to visit comparing to Taichung. Strongly recommend anyone to stay here. Please do advance booking, most of the time is full. You will get warmly welcomed by the staff, always willing to help you too.

Business Double Room”

Anyone who has traveled in Asia is familiar with the old 1950s hotels with the dated furniture, etc. When they are maintained well, I love the charm. When they aren't, they can be smelly, musty and feel dirty. Well this one is well maintained, clean and charming. Three other factors make it worth the say: 1. The owners are very nice people and speak English and I like giving my money to nice people. 2. Internet specials are around 1000NT for a room with a window which is a great deal, IMO. (Mine was a "business double" which is a small room with a double bed. I think the difference btw a business or not is that business has a view). 3. It's in a fantastic location if you are a tourist and with great local cheap food in the area. I noticed other reviews where people complained about the breakfast. They are wrong. Yes, it is Chinese breakfast food, but is is very nice with lots of choices. The congee was especially nice. Hey your in Taiwan, so try eating like locals.

The name of the hotel should've been "Famous"... The location is great. It's close to some of the most famous food places in Tainan. Staff is very friendly.
