First off let me point out that within Alishan park there aren't many hotels to choose from and I have to say Alishan House was probably the best there was.
The good thing about this place was the location, the really helpful staff, the cleanliness...More
We stayed at the Alishan House for one night at the beginning of the long Qing Ming Weekend. During this super peak period, the prices of the hotel rooms were very expensive but the hotel was still fully booked by mainly Taiwanese, Japanese, Singaporean and...More
A group of 8 of us were touring Taiwan for 5 days and I loved Alishan House and area the best. Cars had to be left in a large carpark and a shuttle bus drove you a short way up to Alishan House. It is...More
My son and I had a nice stay at the Alishan House. It was more in the middle of the Forest area instead of by all the other hotels. Our room came with breakfast and dinner which were both wonderful and filling. I enjoyed both...More
The location of the hotel was fantastic and it was near many trails. It's not at the main visitor centre area but the hotel provides free shuttle service throughout the day, otherwise it's a nice 15 min stroll. My recommendation would be to book the...More

You can watch the sunset from the roof top of the hotel. It is quite impressive. To see the run rise, you need to take a train to Zhushan, there is a viewing platform and it is the best place for sun rise. The train ride is about 30 minutes. If you join the hotel's program, wake up call is around 4 AM and the hotel shuttle bus will take you to the train station and use the train ticket (provided by the hotel) to ride the train to Zhushan station (last stop). Many visitors stay at the train station area to view sun rise. To see the best view, you need to walk additional 10 or 15 minutes to a viewing platform. After the sun rise, my recommendation is to hike back to the hotel (instead of ride the train). The scenery is worthwhile. Alishan house is the best place to stay while you visit Mt. Alishan. It has many walkways to various attractions inside the park and allow you to explore the forest, giant trees, flowers and plants, ponds, temples, etc.
My recommendation is to stay two nights since it is better to leave the mountain area before noon to avoid the dense fog in the afternoon along the mountain road to Chiayi. This will give you enough time to see all attractions.
Hi - we viewed the sea of clouds from the train station rather than from the observation deck of the hotel. for the best sunrise, you will have to take train from train station to another location to see. definitely highly... More
