Great place to stay If you like to experience the sixties
Owner has equipped the home with necessary amenities, you will find all that you need here. Very warm and cosy home and a great place to stay especially if you are in a group. There are interesting old streets nearby and location to me is convenient. For vegetarians, you do not have to worry about food as there are at least 3 vegetarian stalls nearby, all are yummy. Non vegetarians you have a wide variety of choices. Not to forget the owner is very helpful and nice :-) would definitely recommend Sai Kau Kin Old house to friends!

A rare cultural experience with Sai Kau Kin
The host, the neighborhood and the opporunity to interact with Tainan first hand
The old house is fabulously renovated and decorated with the intention to retain the nostalgic touch of Tainan. It is a three and half storey building and the host makes it a rule that he will receive only one party at a time, which mean that me and my friend have the privilege to use the whole house as our "residence" during our stay in Tainan. Unlike any other ordinary hotel, Sai Kau Kin may not offer the best of comfort, such as everyday cleaning service and in room service, but one do have a rare opportunity to experience first-hand the daily life of the city, talk to neighbors, relax outside the narrow ( but very clean) back alley, and "live" a Tainan way. Every day, we would walk out to the food stands in the neighborhood for breakfast, chat with the store owner of the small grocery store on the street corner and visited the many interesting alleys nearby. The host showed great hospitality and introduced not only the city to us, but also the neighbors the first day in order to make us feeling at home. It is obvious that he has played host to many famous writers and the signatures on the wall of the dinner room is good evidence of his. We enjoyed the stay in Sai Kau Kin very much and it is the best and most fruitful trip that I ever had in Tainan. I feel I am not just a traveler, and outside but part of the community. I have the chance to feel more about Tainan and became more respectful to the way of life of this charming old city of Taiwan.

Comfy, well,equipped house with a nice owner
The owner only rents his house to one group of tourists at a time, this me and my friend got to enjoy the huge house by our own. The attic bedroom is unique and interesting to stay.

for the DIY-ers amongst us
location, airconditioning
This is a hotel for the Do It Yourselfers. Hopefully the taxi driver knows the address, in that case he is an expert. Rather direct him to Kangle street and then start searching for a small side alley. Don´t ¨panick if the door is closed. call the owner. He will be there within 5 minutes. He is very energetic and helpful, his English is sufficient. The house has been redeveloped into a living room/kitchenette/wash room, a first floor with a two beds room, a kind of sitting room on the mezzanine and another room 6 steps higher under the roof. The airco is working well, fortunately, I hope also in the room in the attic. The wash room is shared, but most likely you will be the only guest. Close by you will find some old streets, but please visit the huge wet market at the end of one of those. Here you will find what you have not yet eaten, haven´t known what you were eating or did not dare to eat. I have seen many wet markets, but this is one not to forego. Regarding the lack of services and breakfast, the price for the hotel is steep.

A cultural experience not to be missed
The best thing is that there is a story of the house, the area and they city that needs to be told and this house represents the people and the history of Tainan and of Taiwan.
Great stay, enjoyed the house, the history of the neighborhood and most of all is about the food in Tainan. We stayed in Taipei for 7 days prior to this, however, it pales in comparison to staying in this house. This house has a story to tell and everyone should hear it.

This place is very unique and a very special home.
The design, and layout is fantastic. Easiest check in. Felt like being at home.
This place is the BEST! If you are in the area, don't stay anywhere else. Loads of room, and the beds are very comfortable. Great reno work done by the owners, which make this home feel like your own. Loved my time here, and unfortunately didn't book two nights and had to move to another hotel.
